On laptops, sometimes the TouchPad can be disabled for no apparent reason. To reactivate it, first try restarting your PC. If that doesn't help try the following:

  • Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Settings
  • Click Enable (or Disable to disable)

  • On some models, there is a keyboard shortcut to activate or deactivate the touchpad. For example, on an ACER machine, press FN + F7
  • You can click "Reset device" if neither of those solutions work
  • The official website provides synaptics drivers and software needed to run your TouchPad

On the latest laptops, there is a special button to enable/disable the TouchPad

You can go to the Control Panel (Select the start button and then either "Control Panel" or "Settings" and then "Control panel") and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Then you can select the "Device Select" tab and check the box marked "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present."

That is also where you can permantly disable the touch pad by simply selecting "Disable Device" and "Disable Button"

Hope that helps.

Ok,The setting for the touch pad are not in the mouse settings,They are in the pen and input settings.

Just go to the control panel and select Pen and Input setting and adjust as needed.

Also with Vista,Windows tries to control everything,so you may need to un install the mouse drivers and allow windows to take control,It will not prevent the touch pad from working,It just stops it from being controlled by the touch pad driver and the windows mouse driver ar the same time.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

I can not use my mouse pad to click or scroll please advice hp laptop pavilion dv6

Make sure the trackpad isn't disabled. HP laptops have either a button with an orange light illuminated when disabled or a light in the touchpad itself. Click the button, and it will turn white, indicating it is enabled. If it has a light in the touchpad, double tap the light and it will re-enable the touchpad.

I have an Acer Aspire 5532 notebook running Windows 7. Soon after I got the computer, I went into the control panel and changed the touchpad settings to disable the "tap" feature in order to keep my text...

You could try and re install the touchpad drivers, that should bring the option back.
You could also try uninstalling the touchpad from device manager, windows will pick the device up automatically and try and reinstall it.
Right click on computer / manage / device manager

I want to disable the touchpad on the acer aspire 5532 but cannot seem to do it please can you advise

You can disable it by doing one of these 2 steps:
1.If you want to uninstall the driver "FOR EVER" you can uninstall it from the device manager page from the search toolbar.
All the steps are down to see where is the uninstall button.
I prefer to backup driver using the free driver updater and backup DriverMax.

2. If you want just DISABLE it do the following:
Search for device manager
Click on Mice and other pointing devices tree,
there would be a touchpad driver usually its Synaptics
Disable it by clicking right click and then Driver tab and then disable button, you may see the disable button disabled, that is because you don't have another mouse instead of your touchpad, install your mouse drivers then you may can disable it.

How do I uninstall and reinstall HP tx2000 touchpad driver to fix sporadic mouse movement and "disappearing acts"?

Go to your device manager, go to 'Mice and pointing devices", right-click it and go to 'Uninstall'. Then re-boot your computer and it will automatically re-install the driver. Alternately, you could go to 'Update driver software' instead of uninstalling when you right click.

Mouse pad stopped working on actual laptop but will work when using wireless mouse.

Try uninstalling the touchpad driver from the Device Manager, restart the Computer and reinstall the Touuchpad driver after connecting a wireless mouse.
If the issue persists then this indicates that the issue is with the Touchpad sensor and requires to get the Touchpad serviced.

Disabling the touchpad on HP 530

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?
