Disabling the touchpad on HP 530

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.

    Well - i disabled it, wasn't called Synaptics input device though, but rather PS/2 mouse or something like that, thanks.


    I do think it is probably having a motherboard issue also, i haven't concluded on that yet, but you suggested a bios upgrade, i could try that but what i dont get is why a device that has been working for like a year + would suddenly stop working and y it would need an upgrade, its been working fine. Updates should only be needed when a new device or software or os or the likes is installed, dont you think so?

    I just want to make a suggestion. Everybody just jumps in there and tells everyone to do bios upgrade but if you can't get the exact one you need you can totally disable your computer. Everyone here just uses that for a quick fix like there is nothing to it. Just beware.
    God Bless Greg

Go into your windows device manager.
Search for your touchpad (should call synaptics input device)
give it a right click and disable the device.

I rather think that your mainboard is having problems, tried a bios upgrade and the latest drivers yet?

Cursor problem


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."

My cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

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.

How do I disable double-click on an HP Pavilion dv4 touchpad?


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.
