Question about Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook
I have a Toahiba Tecra A3. It had a terminal illness & the fat table was totally corrupted, so my pc tech. installed Windows xp, but didn't have the relevent Toshiba rocovery disc. I now cannot find anywhere to disable the touchpad & it's driving me crazy, as I keep accidentally touching it, so it's like 2 drivers trying to drive the one m/vehicle. I have tried Control Panel and am now at a total loss. HELP please??!! Thanks Wendy
Hi peony, For some reason, I suspect you're not within the borders of the US, and it turns out that there are at least three versions of the Tecra A3, so please let us know which country you are located in, and if you have the A3, the A3-S711, or the A3-S731... it might make a difference in the drivers you need to install... You'll need to check your Tecra user's manual, or look on the bottom of the laptop for a label with the specific information about your system, and post the details here... In the meantime, I've copied these instructions for you directly from the Toshiba Tecra A3 online instruction manual. To disable the TouchPad, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, then Control Panel; the Control Panel will open. 2. Click Printers and Other Hardware. 3. Click the Mouse icon. 4. Click the TouchPad ON/OFF tab; the TouchPad ON/OFF tab will appear. 5. Select Disable or Enable, whichever is appropriate. 6. Click Apply. 7. Click OK 8. Close the Printers and Other Hardware Window. Once you've done that, reboot the system, and test it to be sure the TouchPad is now disabled. After you provide the details I've requested (which version of the Tecra A3 are you using), we should be able to provide you with more specific information on which driver you need to download and install. Good luck; post the information I've requested, and let us know if you have problems disabling the TouchPad...
