Some laptops have a Fn Key sequence to disable the touch pad. Look for the touch pad icon on your function keys (hand touching finger on a square). You can also go to the toucpad app by double clicking on the touch pad icon in the system tray and got to device properties to disable tapping - assuming issue is TPad interfering with typing

Change Touchpad Settings

Nearly every modern laptop computer comes with a touchpad for on-screen interaction. Depending on your operating system and touchpad driver versions, you can update the speed, sensitivity, tap speed and clicking functions of your computer's touch pad.

Accessing these settings and updating them to meet your needs is a quick and easy process with both the Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X operating systems.

Open the Control Panel by clicking the Windows Start button and selecting "Control Panel." Depending on your Windows configuration, this option may be located within the Start Menu's "Settings" sub-folder.


Double-click the Control Panel's "Mouse" icon.

Click the Touchpad tab.
This tab can have one of several names, depending on your computer manufacturer, your operating system version and your device drivers.

However, the most common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see any option resembling these, you may not be able adjust your laptop's touchpad settings.

Refer to the "Warnings" section if this applies to your computer. Locate the "Scrolling Settings" area within the touchpad properties tab.

Adjust the settings to meet your needs and then click "OK" to close the dialog boxes and confirm your changes. Change touchpad settings in Mac OS X

Click the Apple menu and then select "Preferences."
Click the "Keyboard & Mouse" icon.

Adjust the trackpad settings to meet your needs, and then close the dialog box to confirm your changes.


Enable a Mouse for a Laptop

Without the ability to drag and drop and point and click, a laptop computer is merely a desk ornament.

Most laptops are manufactured with a built-in mouse in the form of a touchpad.

If the touchpad fails or if you just prefer working with a mouse, it is easy to enable a mouse for use with your laptop.

Purchase a mouse that is compatible with your laptop.
You can find compatibility information on the manufacturer's website.

If the mouse is wireless, make sure that the USB receiver is included, or purchase it separately. The mouse will not function without the receiver.

Insert the batteries in the mouse if you are installing a wireless mouse.
The battery compartment is generally located on the bottom of the mouse.

Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the computer.
If you are using a wireless mouse, connect the USB wireless receiver to the USB port.

Turn the computer off and then on again if you are enabling a standard mouse with a wire.
This will instruct the computer to run the "new hardware" wizard, which will walk you through the installation of the mouse, and your mouse will be enabled.

Turn the wireless mouse over, and locate a small indentation with a button.
You may need to use the tip of a pencil or pen to depress this button.

Simultaneously press the button on the mouse and the small button on the USB receiver.
This will initiate communication between the mouse and the receiver.

Hold the buttons down for about 5 to 10 seconds until the light on the mouse comes on.
Test the connection by moving the mouse.

If the cursor moves, you have successfully enabled the mouse.
If not, check that you have the batteries installed.

Try pressing the buttons independently of one another.
Press the button on the receiver until the light blinks and release it.

Press the button on the bottom of the mouse until the light on the mouse is lit.
This should enable your wireless mouse.

My touchpad is not working for click(touch) operation. I feel that this started happening after plug in a USB mouse


When you plug in a USB mouse, the touchpad is usually automatically disabled. Look in your control panel under Mouse or Pointing devices. You will want to look at the settings to ensure that your touchpad turns back on after you unplug the mouse. If your touchpad is NOT returning to normal functionality after you unplug the mouse, try the "safely remove hardware" option (If you have windows). Look in the lower right corner of your screen. If you have a small green arrow icon that safes "safely remove hardware" when you put the mouse pointer over it, click on it. If the mouse shows up in the list, highlight it, and click Stop. You can then remove the mouse when Windows tells you it's safe to do so. This may then return full functionality of the touchpad. In some cases, the mousepad click functionality will be disabled if a USB mouse is plugged in. It can remain so if the system doesn't fully acknowledge that the mouse has been removed. That's why I'm suggesting to try the "Safely Remove Hardware" option first. If that doesn't work, there may be a physical problem with your touchpad and it will need to be serviced.

Tecra touchpad dead after 1 month in storage. Touchpad buttons inop. USB wireless mouse works fine.


There may be a couple if issues here....the most likely is that there just needs to be a new set of drivers that need to be run. Go to the Tecra website and in support find the drivers for your operating system and run from the website. The other issue is that maybe in storage something shifted and the small communication cables that connect the touchpad to the motherboard shifted out of their sockets. This could be checked by removing the keyboard and looking to see if the flat cable is secure in the mobo socket.

How can I use wireless keyboard+mouse on one USB port receiver


You probably have to use two different ones because those are two different devices and the computer recognizes them as such. Your best option would have been a wireless keyboard with a built in touchpad (just like on a laptop.) This option allows you to sit the wireless keyboard on your lap without needing a table (for the mouse.) Search ebay using the terms "wireless keyboard" and "touchpad" for the best prices.

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

The touchpad mouse fails to click on items then when we plug in a usb mouse the same thing happens. it just will not click and stay clicked long enough to change settings.


You may want to try shutting down the computer, and plugging in the USB mouse normally USB mice are ready to go. also make sure the mouse has fresh batteries, if it uses them. If neither of these works check your mouse settings in your "Control panel"
