Normally the Fn and F7 key, it's the key with a finger on a square icon, or right click on the touchpad icon in taskbar>pointing device properties and select device settings and then dissable.

How to disable touchpad


Go to control panel, click on 'view by: large icons' on the top right if available. Find the mouse icon. Then click on the device settings tab. Tick the 'disable internal pointing device when external USB device is attached'.

That should fix your problem. I'm assuming you have Windows 7, if you don't it still should be fairly similar.

My touchpad is not working for click(touch) operation. I feel that this started happening after plug in a USB mouse


When you plug in a USB mouse, the touchpad is usually automatically disabled. Look in your control panel under Mouse or Pointing devices. You will want to look at the settings to ensure that your touchpad turns back on after you unplug the mouse. If your touchpad is NOT returning to normal functionality after you unplug the mouse, try the "safely remove hardware" option (If you have windows). Look in the lower right corner of your screen. If you have a small green arrow icon that safes "safely remove hardware" when you put the mouse pointer over it, click on it. If the mouse shows up in the list, highlight it, and click Stop. You can then remove the mouse when Windows tells you it's safe to do so. This may then return full functionality of the touchpad. In some cases, the mousepad click functionality will be disabled if a USB mouse is plugged in. It can remain so if the system doesn't fully acknowledge that the mouse has been removed. That's why I'm suggesting to try the "Safely Remove Hardware" option first. If that doesn't work, there may be a physical problem with your touchpad and it will need to be serviced.

Mousepad not working


Hello,

Each Touchbad should have basic functionality by default in every Operating system, letting it be used even when no driver is installed. However, try pressing FN and F7 together and see if the touchpad works again. Some people accidently press this FN + F7 key when they mute the sound with the FN + F8 key.

The FN + F7 is there to disable/enable the touchpad as some people use a USB mouse instead of the touchpad.

If you still need the drivers, here are the download links. Please choose desired driver by Operating system and Touchpad brand...

Acer 4720z mousepad not working


You may have a function key that can enable/disable it or a setting in the control panel > mouse > pointing devices. Or possibly a BIOS setting to enable/disable.

Mousepad


if you want to disable mouse (touchpad), use Fn+F7.
as you said your touchpad create problem, try to remove battery first (boot up using only ac adapter), battery can cause touchpad not working properly.
