Question about HP Pavilion G7-1277dx 17" Laptop Pc - Windows 7 Amd A4-3300m 320gb 4gb Ram
Went into device manager and can only uninstall but I just want to disable it because it interferes with my typing making the cursor go all over and making me type everywhere
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:
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.

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.
