    There is no such touchpad option under the mouse settings in the control panel on my laptop

  • jciokajlo Dec 05, 2007

    Nope, still no help.

  • jciokajlo Dec 20, 2007

    There is no Device Settings under the mouse section of the control panel and no on off switch. I think you may have my style of computer mixed up with another.

    Or you can go to device manager and disable it there.

    Most HP notebooks come with an on/off button near the touchpad. If you do not wish to use the touchpad at this time, press this button. Remember to press it again when you wish to use this accessory once more!
    If the notebook does not have an on/off button for the touchpad, and you wish to turn the touchpad off, open the Mouse Properties window, select the Device Settings tab, and click the Disable button. You may re-enable the touchpad from here at any point.

    In the TouchPad Properties window you can access additional TouchPad preferences.



    »To access the TouchPad Properties window, use the TouchPad to select Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Mouse > Device Settings, and then select the Settings button. (If you follow this path using an optional external mouse, the TouchPad Properties window may be unavailable.)

To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can go to the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.


a) 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.

Orange light comes on occassionally on mouse pad and cursor freezes, how do i stop this


Tap the orange light quickly two times to enable the touchpad. Touch the same spot twice to disable the touchpad. To see the instructions from HP type "mouse" into the Search Programs and Files. Click on "Change mouse settings" and click Device Settings. Click on "Settings" and click "Touch pad disable zone". I was delighted to have found this as I had been restarting the computer manually to enable the touchpad. Shame on HP. The instructions for this simple problem are difficult to locate for the average user. They can do better.

How do you turn off the touch pad


Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.

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.

My cursor jumps back to the beginning when i'm trying to type. i'm constantly having to backspace and correct and reset my cursor. any suggestions?


Disable your touchpad if you consistently have this problem.

When you are typing something, and you suddenly touch the touchpad (tapping this touchpad moves the cursor) then your cursor will suddenly change position which then mess up your typing.

If you don'r have an external mouse connected, better be careful not to touch the touchpad. If you have an external mouse, better disable this touchpad.

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.

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.

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.

Mouse cursor moving by itself


i have latitude c610 and same problem happens with me too. i think that happens when i finish my brakfat and without cleaning my hands start using the touch pad. what happens according to me is that small particles of food(eg bread/dust particles) stuck in the corners or the body wall where the touch pad ends and keeps pressing the touchpad, thus causing the mouse to move to one direction. when i clean the corners and sides of the touchpad, it starts working ok !!

thanks
