The touchpad on the system HP 530 suddenly started acting up, an so i went to get myself a USB mouse, but the problem remains.
I noticed that when its running on battery the touchpad works okay, but once i plug in the adaptor (charger) after about a minute or two, it just starts misbehaving.
So i want to disable the touchpad and stick to the external USB mouse at least as an interim solution, any help please.

Disabling the touchpad on a Dell Inspiron can be useful when typing for long periods of time, or using an external mouse. Bumping or tapping the touchpad while typing can cause cursor jumping and unwanted results. Use the touchpad software to enable or disable touchpad controls. Download the driver for your touchpad at the Dell Support website.
Click on the "Touchpad" icon in the task bar. If the icon doesn't appear, you can download and install the driver for the touchpad from the Dell website, or choose "Start" and "Control Panel." Choose "Device Select" on the touchpad menu, or choose "Mouse" in the "Control Panel" menu and "Device Select." Click "Disable" under "Touchpad" to turn off the touchpad, or click "Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick When a USB Mouse is Connected." h
yes. its in the control panel under mouse properties. Look for the advanced properties, theres alot of settings you can change there for the touch pad. There might be a link to the program in the start menu too.
You might have inadvertedly disabled the touchpad.
1. Press Fn + F9 to enable the touchpad.
This key combination acts as a switch, enabling or disabling the touchpad: press once to enable (if it is disabled), then press again to disable.
2. If the touchpad still doesn't respond, check the settings in the mouse control utility.
Click on the touchpad icon on the right side of the task bar if you see one or click Start button/Settings/Control Panel, select the Mouse icon and Press Enter.
Change the settings if necessary.
Hi there Dublin. I recently bought a HP laptop myself, and I believe I can help your situation, or at least I hope I can. Here's what you do: Access your Control Panel>Click Mouse>Click Device Settings>Click Settings> Click Tapping> Click Disable Tapping. That should do the trick. You are not disabling your touch-pad, just the double-clicking that is associated with it. Drove me nuts for about a day, 'til I figured it out..Hope it worked for your notebook.
You can have a USB external mouse pending the time you will be able to have another touch pad because the touchpad is bad and it will be replaced with another one for proper functioning ok
