How to disable touch device in notebook
Hi, i'm not tto familiar with your laptop, but i'll try and help.
Do you want to disable the buttons as well? or is it just the tapping that you want to disable? I know it can be a pain in the bum, but there should be a squigily icon on the bottom right of the task bar where the clock is. If it isn't there you will have to go into the control panel.
Now i'll presume you are running Vista, anything else will be similar procedure.
Please leave feedback if this has sorted you out.

Some laptops don't have dedicated buttons but you can use Function keys (like Fn + F5 on Dell computers) to toggle the state of your touch pad. In the case of HP laptops, you can hold the top-left corner of the touchpad for few seconds and it will disable the touch pad - repeat this to re-activate it.
New laptop computers either have a physical on/off button to easily disable the touch pad or there's an icon in the system tray that lets you manage the various settings of the touchpad. If you don't have that icon, you can go to Control Panel -> Mouse Properties -> Touch Pad to enable or disable the touchpad.
The touch pad can also be disabled through the device manager. Type devmgmt.msc in the Windows Run box to start the device manager, expand "Mice and other Pointing devices", right-click and disable the driver entry that says Touch pad or likewise.
Hope this information will help.
Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...
