[ Edited ]

Assuming the TouchPad is enabled, it may just be "off".

 

Double tap firmly in the upper left corner to turn it back on...

 

 

NOTES

  • The "button" is sometimes fully invisible; sometimes there might be a small square or other marking on the surface to mark the location of the switch.

 

  • This is a session-by-session toggle switch meant to allow the user manual control over the TouchPad on / off function.  That means, if you switch off the TouchPad, depending on other factors, the TouchPad will come back on the next time you reboot your computer.

 

I hope this helps.

I've used this button several times and it will not turn on/off. What setting menu would have the options to turn the function button back on?

Hi Srt,

 

If the advice in the above posts do not help (the firm double tap in the far upper left corner to turn TouchPad ON/OFF), then you might have have disabled the device.

OR

One other thing you might have done that looks odd, but doesn't actually disable the device, is to turn off the light around the TouchPad (if your device has such).  It is a toggle.

Function key (FN) and then the space bar  turns light on / off / on ...

 

 

Disable / Enable:

 

Control Panel > icon view > Mouse > TouchPad Settings > Click to "TouchPad Enable"

 

Continue on to Settings to set up and configure the TouchPad the way you like it...

Re: Dear I have mistakenly locked touchpad of my laptop model ProBook 4530s. How can I reactivate it

I've done as suggested but my mouse doesn't have that option. I know I just recently lost everything on the computer and had people from my school redownload the OPS (Windows 7) and have had other drivers need to be downloaded. I was informed to update mouse driver and have updated as requested. I now as I said don't have the option, could this mean I don't have the corect driver/mouse operating system?

Hi Srt,

 

You have tagged onto someone else's Post.  You did not say what kind of computer you have.  I do not know if you have the correct driver.  It is possible that the driver is not installed or did not install properly.

 

To Check the Current Version:

Control Panel > icon view > Device Manager > Mice and other pointing devices >

Right-Click Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad (or Similar) > Properties > Driver

Check the Driver Version

 

If HP ever sold your computer with Windows 7 installed on it, then below you will find your computer's website with application software for your computer, including the software for your TouchPad.

========================================================================

If you would like to try re-installing your Device Driver

Here are the instructions for you to follow so you can find your computer's website for your Operating System.  At the website, enter your Operating System (Windows 7), and look for your TouchPad Driver.

 

Go to the top of this Forum page - to Support and Drivers

 

  • Enter your notebook model number
  • Open the HP web page for your Product / Model
  • Go to the Software and Drivers Downloads page
  • Enter your Operating System
  • Scroll down - Go to category Driver – Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices
  • Select “Synaptics TouchPad Driver” (Select the Newest Version)
  • Save this installation package onto your computer.  Make a note of the file's NAME and its location.
  • Install the installation package:  It will be named sp*.exe – the package will most likely be located in the Downloads folder.  If you have ‘Admin’ control, you may highlight the package and “double-click” to install it, else Right-Click, Select ‘run as Administrator’ and install.

==========================================================================

The website for your computer has other software for your computer, manuals, and lots of information to help you recover what you need to get your system back "in good shape".  Take a look around and be sure to download your manuals, too, if you have not done so before.

 

It is my pleasure to assist.
