Re: HP elitebook 8470p touch pad not working

Eapen,

 

Welcome the the HP Forum.

 

I must assume the TouchPad worked before -- say earlier today, yesterday, some time in the recent past.

 

It may be "tangled" and need a quick driver reset:

  • Close all your programs and Shut down the computer
  • Disconnect everything (little Unifier for the keyboard / external mouse can stay)
  • Perform the Hard Reset for your notebook
  • Boot the computer and log in

 NOTE:  This does NOT wipe out your data.  It is just a "clearing of the cobwebs".

 

With a bit of luck, that will fix it up.

 

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

Next, consider the TouchPad may be disabled somewhere:

Enable / Disable Touchpad

 

If everything "looks" right, then take a look here:

Fix Touchpad / ClickPad

 

NOTE:  There are links to the relevant HP documents within the file.

 

 

Reference:  Drivers, Software & Firmware for HP EliteBook 8470p Notebook PC

 

 

 

Click the Kudos Thumbs-Up!

It is a nice way to say “Thank You" for the help.

Although I strive to reflect HP's best practices, I do not work for HP. 

Kind Regards,

Re: HP elitebook 8470p touch pad not working

TouchPad On / Off Switch – Per login Session

  • One can turn on / off the TouchPad with the on / off switch in the Upper Left corner. It takes a firm double tap in the far upper left corner.
  • The switch is a toggle -- double tap for on, repeat to turn off.
  • The “button” is invisible; the on/off action is controlled by a pressure sensitive area on the TouchPad.
  •  This setting works on a "per session" basis, that is, per login session on the account.

If its only locking the touchpad (if not mechanical failure). double toch to the ligt area on left side.

Re: HP elitebook 8470p touch pad not working

I had a user who accidentally disabled her touchpad for an Elite 8470p.....

 

double tapping the top left corner on the clickpad worked for us!  Thank you....I never knew that shortcut. :smileyhappy:
