  1. HI,
    I have this Hp Probook 4540s i3(windows 8, 64bit) for about a year and it was working fine but recently, I noticed that it had a problem. At times, the touchpad would freeze and I wouldnt be able to use it for a few seconds. At first this wasnt much of a problem due to the fact that I had an external mouse but now im travelling more often so this became a problem. I was jsut wondering if anybody knew what caused this problem and if they do, if there were any quick fixes towards it.

    Go to the HP driver support for your model and get the latest drivers for the touch-pad.
    You might have to find out who makes that touch-pad and get it from the manufacturer
    Or see if there is Windows update for it.
    Did you update to Windows 8.1 yet?
    Also there are known issues with Windows 8 and some touch-pads know working correctly.
