Specs: Windows 7
PLEASE HELP!!! Just upgraded to Windows 7 and I can't turn off the touchpad on my compaq presario cq50 and it's driving me absolutely nuts!!! Turned it off via the button just above the touchpad but no luck - my pointer is still flying all over the place. Even had to re-type this message 3 times bc of my jumping pointer.

✔ Best Answer
Have you got the correct driver installed for your touchpad, not just the generic Windows one? Did you run Win7 upgrade advisor beforehand?

Thanks for the response. Turns out you are correct - I did not have the correct touchpad driver. I downloaded the updated driver from Compaq's website and problem solved. Thanks a ton!
