Gateway 6451 disable touchpad


Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.Get online and got towww.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support"(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Lookfor downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system whenrequested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

Sony Vaio VGN-NR140E touchpad is not working


You can try the drivers at: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGN-NR140E

The other thing to try is to see if you have disabled the touchpad by accident. Some touchpads have a small button near them which turns them off, to avoid accidental use, if you have plugged in an external mouse.

You could also see if the touchpad is disabled by right clicking on "Computer" and selecting "Manage" and double clicking on "Device Manager". See if anything is disabled in this list.

I want to disable the touchpad on my Inspiron 1545 but I cannot even locate anything that has the word "touchpad" in it. It certainly isn't included in my Device Directory. So, do I need to...


Hello, there should be a shortcut key on your keyboard that will do that for you. It should be one of the F# keys. You should be able to hit Fn key and then one of the F# keys that will shut off your touchpad. You can also look for "smartpad" or something like that. You may have an icon next to your clock that controls the touchpad. You can turn it off there.

Thanks for using FixYa!

When typing the cursor jumps to a different location. I have an HP530. I do not know how to disable the touch pad.


Try using a mouse and see if that changes anything.

Many HP laptops have a button to turn the touchpad on and off. It should be between the touchpad and the keyboard and have a light next to it that comes on when it's toggled.

Can I disable the touchpad double click feature on


You can go to the control panel and click on Mouse. Look at the top tab and click on settings. The window that comes up shoes the touchpad device, highlight it and click on the settings button. Look at the list of options and click on tapping. Look for the little box and uncheck if it says enable tapping. This will disable the tapping function of the pad, so you will only be able to scroll with the pad and click with the buttons. Click apply and ok.
