I know that you are past this point now, but I was wondering if I read your post correctly. Were you saying that you could not use the on screen keyboard to log in? Please see the video in this post: Damaged Laptop need to access without being able to type my password

For those of you who are having this problem.I have solved the issue.The solution is to simply download the driver from Synaptics website,unzip it and install it directly over the other driver.There is NO NEED to uninstall the other driver first.And,I'd also like to tell you that after installing this driver (Ver 17) my scrolling is MUCH smoother now ! WHY HP hasn't updated this driver since version 15 is completely beyond me.AND.....it's also enhanced for 64 bit systems !

HP is notorious for not updating drivers. It's one of the reasons I will not buy anything from HP anymore.

Example: There was a critical BIOS update a few months ago. These can be difficult to apply for the average user, but in this case it comes with a Windows utility that you just follow the directions on the screen. When it's finished you reboot and after reboot you have the new BIOS.

Critical updates are shown in red so they're easy to distinguish from regular ones. It is easy, trust me

Those gesture features are highly configurable in most of the latest touchpad software. Browse through the control panels to see.

There's no reason to panic when something like that happens. Never once have I seen anyone not be able to fix such a thing. At most its a temporary interruption while we (or Google) help you sort it. Then you've learned something and built your confidence.

I'm always amazed at how upset people get about "ruining" their computer. Never once, Not a single time have I seen such a thing. We haven't even had anyone fry their mobo from static electricity or brick the BIOS with a failed update, and those are the most risky things we deal with here.
