Hi, I have had the above laptop for a few weeks, at first the touchpad was fine, now it does not work at all.
I have looked on other threads to try and get an idea. I have done all Windows updates, updated the driver and still connot get it to work. After this, I have found that the touchpad no loger appears in the Elan box in advanced mouse settings.
Next when i go into device manager, I have found the Elan clickpad (which was hidden) and it has a warning triangle on it:
This is what is displayed when it is double clicked:
When I try and update the drivers again, it says that I have the best drivers are installed:
Any ideas about how to proceed now?

Thanks for engaging in HP support Forums! This is a wonderful location to converse with the community, get assistance and find tips! I understand you are having issues with the touchpad not working on your HP notebook. Don't worry as I have a few suggestions which should help you resolve this issue.
Splendid effort and fabulous description of the issue before posting. Kudos to you on that score. You are a valued HP customer and it is paramount to assist you here. I take it as a privilege to share this platform with you.
First, restart the computer and tap on F10 during restart, once on BIOS screen, move the mouse cursor around to check if it works normally,
If it does, it would confirm a software issue and you follow the below steps if it doesn't work on its a hardware failure and I would suggest a touchpad replacement.
I recommend you to uninstall any generic synaptic drivers showing up for the touchpad (if available) under hidden devices from the device manager:
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
At a command prompt, type the following command , and then press ENTER:
Type the following command a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
Troubleshoot the devices and drivers in Device Manager.
NOTE: Click Show hidden devices on the View menu in Device Manager before you can see devices that are not connected to the computer.
When you finish troubleshooting, close Device Manager.
Type exit at the command prompt.
Note that when you close the command prompt window, Window clears the devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 variable that you set in step 2 and prevents ghosted devices from being displayed when you click Show hidden devices.
And then download a new version of the Elan touchpad drivers using this link: Click here
