The HP Probook series
comes equipped with an indicator light that changes depending on the status of your touchpad
. The main function of these lights is to keep your computer safe.
This article will teach you how to enable or disable the touchpad of your HP laptop. We will also teach you to differentiate between the different indicator lights on your laptop's touchpad.

HP Touchpad Indicator Lights
If the yellow/orange/blue light is ON
, it indicates that your touchpad is locked. This status indicates that the pointer
and the use of your touchpad
is disabled. It is not indicative of an error or hardware failure.
The sensor LED light needs to be switched OFF
in order to activate the touchpad. Double tap the sensors or the touch pad to unlock it. As soon as you do so, the light will switch itself off.
