See my thread on this issue:

I agree, the issue is maddening, but no one is willing to help. 

 

Its too bad, because otherwise its a nice laptop. Makes you wonder, who on earth at HP actually thinks its a good idea to have the mouse move when you touch/click the button? In what situation would that be remotely useful?

i got the point.lets think that way.when toyota made any production mistake in their car than they call their car back to toyota isnt it?for what reason?to sort the problem out?so this touch pad is complety their mistake.they must call this laptops back and they must fix it.

Re: Hp 4520s touchpad issue.please help.

This was driving me nuts also, soI turned up the Touch Sensitivity, I then exported the REG that was altered and pushed it out via GP to the 100+ laptops we have here

 

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTP\TouchPadPS2_3]
"TouchThreshold"=dword:0000002e

 

It you need to log off and back on for the change to take effect

Re: Hp 4520s touchpad issue.please help.

HP - Shame on you!

The solution is right under the hood but no body knows about it - not even HP support!

Here it is:

http://anterence.blogspot.com/2010/07/enabling-tap-zones-in-synaptics.html

Basically it enables you to define tap zones and assign functionality for each.

I have defined the bottom right tapping zone (right above the right click button) to act as right click.

This way I don't need to press the right button but only to tap it.

It works for me. 

I'm feeling much better about my HP 4520 now.
