HP Pavilion DV6T QE - Turn Off Touchpad White Light


Gear: HP Pavilion DV6T QE, Laptops.

The light surrounding the touchpad comes in handy at night, but sometimes when you are watching videos it's better to turn it off.


How to:
  • Press and hold FN and then hit Spacebar

The touchpad remains active so you can still use it. If you want to turn off the touchpad just double tap on the upper left corner.

  15. @Anonymous from Crotia,
    No. I have not yet figured out an easy way of turning off the light. It could be done by disassembling the monitor and unplugging that light, but that's not easy or worth the risk.

    1. I am not clear on what systems you are talking about, so I cannot recommend one. Usually I would recommend higher spec systems.

      HP's consumer line of computers has had issues including overheating. My current HP laptop does get quite hot when gaming, so I recommend having a cooling mat for those intensive tasks.

      If you want something that is durable, although not pretty, get a Lenovo ThinkPad system. These systems are build to last a longer time. (4m)

    1. There are different versions of the DV6T QE. There is one specific versions of the DV6T that has a very crappy, low performance graphic card. I am talking about the AMD 7470M version. Other versions have better graphics cards.

      Compare specs (usually "more is better")
      7400M series - http://www.amd.com/us/products/notebook/graphics/7000m/7400m/Pages/radeon-7400m.aspx#2
      6700M series (what I got) - http://www.amd.com/US/PRODUCTS/NOTEBOOK/GRAPHICS/AMD-RADEON-6000M/AMD-RADEON-6700M-6600M/Pages/amd-radeon-6700m-6600m.aspx#2

      If you are unhappy with the laptop, and are within the return date time or are able to pay the restocking fee then I recommend returning it, and getting a better version. (5m)
