HP Probook – how to turn keypad mouse back on - keypad, mouse not working

HP Probook – how to turn keypad mouse back on when you accidentally turned if off.

This Trick works for ProBooks 5000 and 6000 series.
If you have accidentally disabled your Touchpad, you will see a Yellow LED light on the top left of the pad.

Double tapping the top left corner of the Touchpad
(where the yellow LED is ) toggles the pad On.
If it is On, it will turn it Off.

When it is off - you can only navigate your computer via keyboard commands, which makes it very difficult to get around, or you can navigate with a USB / wireless mouse.
This happened to a customer of mine and I found the fix on an HP Forum.

Hope this helped you.

How to Eject a CD or DVD on Mac OS X if you don't see the disk mounted. Go to Finder > Applications > Utilities and open Terminal Type the following command: /usr/bin/drutil eject Hit the Enter key and Voila! That should eject the CD or DVD - unless it is physically stuck. Hope that helps someone. Hope to post soon!
I have not blogged anything since May 2013. It has been almost 2 years - WOW - where does the time go? I would have likely posted something but this "Cancer" has really taken its toll physically, mentally and affects me spiritually. One who is spiritually minded, hearted, and spiritually conscious is ushered into self examination / evaluation (not that I was not doing that before), but even more so since the illness. The experience has made me further realize how much I depend on God and a relationship with Jesus Christ. I would not trade anything for that relationship! For anyone who may be reading this I hope you know Jesus as your savior, if you do not, the Bible says in Matthew 7:7 - "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:" Seek Ye first the Kingdom of Heaven - Never Give up. Believe and God will reveal Himself to you. Read His Word "The Holy Bible". King James Version is my favorite. NIV - Second Favorite. Seek the Bibles Online "the differences" find your favorite. May God Bless you as you Trust him or Seek Him. Once you find Him, you must still seek him daily for His Will.
