The settings can be found in the control panel under Pen and input devices,(You may have to change from or to classic view)But it could also be a driver issue or a hardware issue.

Has this been solved fully? Did you recently reinstall windows, was it something that came with the computer, or is it your own copy?

Most major system builders(national/international brands) have proprietary OS and hardware builds, usually requiring their recovery software to get you fully functional. Otherwise there could be a lot of headaches(this is one reason i build my own). Sometimes you can install your own base OS (ie - retail windows xp), get the drivers, and be fine. But sometimes not all the drivers you need are always readily available. I've seen this a lot in the past with Sony VAIO and Dell computers, HP has also been notoriously proprietary.

At any rate, just some friendly advice, to you and anyone that may stumble across this.

If you start having problems with any sort of peripheral devices or hardware in general, the first place you want to start is with drivers. The first place you should look is the manufacturers website in their help and support sections. Most of the time they'll have the drivers you need. If your system is an older model, somewhere between 3-5+ years, then the system builder might cut support outside of their knowledge base. And a couple years after that knowledge base information gets phased out as well.

I turned off my touch pad to my acer aspire 5733z and it wont turn bk on


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


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.

Laptop Touch Pad will not work


if you plug usb keyboard onto your laptop it will probably turn the touch pad off.
If no other keyboard is attached there is usually a switch to turn off the touch pad.
also if you attach a mouse this may disable the touchpad so you dont move the mouse pointer when you are typing

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.

Touch pad too sensitive, it always messes me up when I'm typing


You could try adjust the touchpad settings. Sometimes there is a touchpad icon in the taskbar that you can right click on to adjust the properties. You can also disable the pad and use a USB mouse instead.

Mouse moves on its own


Your palm might be brushing on the touch pad while you are typing that is probably why the cursor jumps to a different location. as for disabling the touch pad I think that it is not possible unless you install a synaptics driver for your laptops touch pad.

Acer aspire touch pad not working


There are many possible fixes. To do some forensic work it would be best to know what was going on when the touch pad stopped working. It could very easily be the driver. You can see if that's it in device manager. Locate your touch pad device there and right-click on the device, choose "update driver".

Some laptops, my Toshiba for instance, have an option to configure the touchpad to disable when it senses a USB mouse or keyboard connecting. I have mine set to disable because when I'm typing on the onboard keyboard and I accidently slightly brush the touchpad, it sends the cursor all over the page and usually I lose everything I just typed.

The problem might also be a matter of a bogus setting in the Service Manager. There are a number of services that are related to your touchpad or mouse.

Touch pad possessed.


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]

For extra USB ports, purchase a USB hub($15 -$20). That way you can add at least 4 USB ports to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I don't know if you mean that your cursor suddenly moves as you are typing? If so, it is likely your touch pad is too sensitive. I have a mouse w/mouse pad but never disabled the touch pad. So i disabled the touch pad and it solved it for me. If you want to be sure it is the touch pad being over sensitive, then type a paragraph but keep your fingers and palms far away from the touch pad. If the problem improves, like it did for me, then the touchpad is too sensitive. You can go into the settings for the touchpad to change the sensitivity setting to make it less senstive and see if that works and it does not then press Fn +F7 keys to disable the touchpad.
