SOURCE: touchpad tapping for MSI Wind U100 laptop

Usually this on/off feature comes with the manufacturer drivers. If (I'm assuming you are using windows) the OS was re-installed, it just uses a generic driver which does not include advanced options. And MSI seem to not provide this driver (I've searched). Maybe there is an option for it on their System Control Manager. You can download it here:

http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=utility&maincat_no=135&prod_no=1474

In LINUX, it is a bit more complex, because it is not easy to get a specific driver for the touchpads .

SOURCE: my ASUS K50IJ cant disable tap-to-click

Hey

you should have the touchpad drivers installed, the synaptics program icon on the bottom right corner of the screen, if you don't have it, the touchpad software/drivers and probably not installed and the computer is using generic drivers. the synaptics program, icon, you can right click on it and turn off the tap to clicp ability.

You should also be able to disable the whole touchpad with a FN+F1-f12 combination, its one of the buttons, might not be a feature on all the laptops out there tought so if yours doesn't have it, or none of the buttons do it, then it probably doesn't have it.

SOURCE: I can not disable touchpad

Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'immortal4u.png

Since you have a Dell laptop, you'll have a special tab called 'Dell touchpad' in the window that pops up. Click on the touchpad picture in the window.

In the new window that appears, click 'Device Select'

Click on the 'Disable' radio button to disable the touchpad completely. If you want to disable the touchpad of your Dell laptop only when an external device like a mouse is attached, check the last option that says 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present'

immortal4u_2.png

That's it. You've disabled your laptop's touchpad for good. If you don't find an option to manage your touchpad in Mouse settings, you have to install Synaptics drivers from here. Similar options can be found in other laptops as well.

Good luck ! if your problem is solved don't forget to rate

There is a FN + Key (F9 for me) Hotkey to disable the elan touchpad on ASUS Laptops.
This might be the problem if someone activated it by accident.

How do I disable the touch pad mouse


How to Disable aMouse Pad on an Asus Notebook

Touchpads are fairly standard equipment on laptops these days, in lieu of theolder "eraser-head" track buttons. Because laptops are typically notused in locations that are conducive to using a full- mouse, touchpads areused instead to allow the user to move the mouse pointer with a finger.Occasionally however, you may find yourself wanting to disable thetouchpad---perhaps while you are typing so that accidentally brushing thetouchpad does not reposition the typing cursor. Somewhat ironically, in orderto disable an ASUS laptop's touchpad, you first need to fully enable thetouchpad's software by installing the correct drivers onto your computer.
Instructions
I
nstalling theTouchpad Drivers
1. Open yourpreferred Web browser and navigate to the ASUS driver download page. 2. Select theproduct, series and model of your laptop using the drop-down menus on the ASUSwebsite and click the "Search" button. 3. Select your laptop's operating system andexpand the "Touchpad" category in the new page. 4. Click the"Global" option. This will bring up a "Download" dialog boxon your screen. Save the driver install file to your hard drive. Launch it whenthe file has finished downloading. 5. Follow theinstructions to begin the automated driver installation program. You may needto restart your computer to complete the installation.Disabling theTouchpad
1. Click the "Start" button and launchthe control panel from the start menu.
2.Click"Mouse" in the control panel window to open a new dialog box. 3. Click the "Device Settings" tab. 4. Select thetouchpad in the list of installed devices and click the "Disable"button. This will disable the touchpad.

How do i turn off the touchpad on my laptop


There should be an icon in the control panel to allow you to change the settings on the touchpad. One of the settings should allow you to turn it off.

How do I disable touch pad when using a mouse? ASUS K50IJ Win7 64 bit


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable Touchpad movement or tapping. You can however drag the Mouse icon from the control panel to your Quick launch bar for quick access.

If that sounds too much effort, you may consider adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. This can be accessed from the Touch Pad tab of our mouse properties. Choose a low setting.

I have an Asus K60 Laptop.I can not figure out how to turn off the touch pad, as I am using a wireless external mouse instead of the touchpad on the laptop.Any clues?


Did you try the FN key and F9...
That is what they say to disable your touchpad

You have a function key which is called Fn That key allows you to use the functions on the F series keys

So Fn then F9 should do the trick
