Mouse touch keypad not working

Hi @nicknamerohi,


Good Day.  Thank you for posting your query in the HP community.  I read the post regarding issues with the keyboard and touchpad of the notebook. I will be delighted to assist you here. :)

Superb description and commendable diagnosis of the issue before posting. Kudos to you for that. :)

For better clarity and to assist you better I would require more information regarding this:

  • Did this happen after a recent Software or Windows update?
  • Was anything spilled on the keyboard and touchpad area?
  • Did you run diagnostics on the keyboard and touchpad?
  • Please let me know the complete model# and product# of the computer to assist you better.

For now, try these steps:

  • Connect an external USB keyboard and mouse and check if it works correctly.
  • If they work correctly, then the computer may have a hardware issue.
  • To isolate the issue further please run diagnostics on the keyboard and mouse to ensure that the hardware is fully functional.
  • Link: http://hp.care/2uoegKc  to run diagnostics. Run the keyboard and touchpad diagnostics under the “Component Tests” option.

If diagnostics pass, then uninstall and reinstall the keyboard and touchpad drivers from device manager.

  • Right-Click on start button> click device manager> expand keyboards>then select the keyboard driver that is listed and right-click on it and uninstall the drivers.
  • Then restart the computer and check if the issue gets fixed.
  • Right-Click on start button> click device manager> expand>mice and other pointing devices>Right Click on the touchpad and mouse drivers and uninstall them one at a time.
  • Then restart the computer and check if the issue gets fixed.

If it still continues, then perform a refresh of Windows 8.1 which reinstalls windows without causing data loss if the correct options are selected. Link: http://hp.care/2fEutpt for doing it.

If diagnostics fail, then contact HP phone support to get the computer serviced.
