Suddenly the led of my touchpad is on and the device does not react to touch. HP laptop. According to control panel device is working properly. What can I do? Last evening all was ok.

Upgrade waiting in the background? Jun 27, 2012

I am working on an HP, too, and an automatic upgrade for whatever touch pad upgrade was idling in the background a few days ago. I don't know if you leave your machines on night and day (I do, they run permanently), but give a restart, or better: a full shut-down a try.

Shutting down did not help Jun 27, 2012

I wonder if there could be a function key for the touch tab? Fortunately I got a mouse, so I can manage for a while, but I cannot work in my favorite position sitting in the front seat of our car (while at the summer cottage).

Hit the function key (FN) + the appropriate combination, most likely F12. This will enable/disable your touch pad.

Double tapping on the LED always works, have a HP laptop as well.
