    Here's what you need to do. First, install the driver from HP's support site at (I am, of course, assuming you have Windows XP on a Compaq N610C). Once the software is installed, click on the taskbar icon that looks like a big, Red O. Go to the tab "device settings" and switch to "Pointing Stick" in the dropdown menu box. Then press "disable" if that's what you want to do. If not, press "settings" to change advanced settings. If the mouse is not working at all, remove the screws on the bottom of the computer that have something that looks like a keyboard next to them. Then remove the keyboard and verify that the stick is connected.

The touchpad is locked


On some models there is a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles the touchpad on or off.

On other models you simply tap twice in the upper left hand portion of the touchpad to toggle it on or off.

And then there are some models that you use keystrokes to toggle the touchpad. Normally you would Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key near the bottom left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The key that toggles the touchpad will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

Below is what I found in your user manual on the touchpad. It looks like your touchpad is controlled by software and there is no button or keystrokes that control the toggling.

Customizing the Touch Pad and Track Stick You can use the Mouse Properties window to disable the touch pad and track stick or adjust their settings.
  1. Open the Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Mouse.

  2. In the Mouse Properties window:

    • Click the Device Select tab to disable the touch pad and track stick.

    • Click the Pointer tab to adjust touch pad and track stick settings.

  3. Click OK to save the settings and close the window.
Below is a link to your manual

How do I turn off the touch pad on my Acer Aspire 5742 laptop


Hello,

Thank you for using fixya. My name is Carlo.

There are two ways that you can do to turn off/on the touch pad in your acer aspire.

1. Press FN + F7. It will turn off the touchpad and will turn on once you press the same buttons again.

2. If the buttons do not work. You can do this:

1. Go to control panel>hardware and devices>Devices and Printers>Mouse
2. CLick on the last setting on the right.
3. Click on Disable in the Mouse Properties.
5. Click OK.


Just go to the same area when you want to enable your touchpad again.

I hope this helps.

How do i disable the touch pad on my Dell Lattitude E5400 laptop? Thanks, Tom tc@tc-talent.com 917-733-5968


Hi,

You can turn off the touch pad through the mouse settings in the Control Panel. I was a little frustrated by this too, but if you go to the Control Panel and click 'Mouse', the first tab of this new window is 'Dell Touchpad'. Simply click anywhere in that window and you'll be able to configure the touch pad settings. One great option for many people is 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present' as there is no easy one-button solution to disable it.
