If you use a USB mouse, there is no need to disable the laptop mouse. You can use either the USB mouse or the laptop mouse.

Mouse pad stalls and i see a little red light on the mouse pad....i have a compaq laptop but not sure what version...how do i disable thi feature so i dont have to use a physical mouse


The little red light is likely from the red LED underneath your optical mouse. If the mouse cursor/pointer on the screen is jerky, it may mean the mouse pad is dirty and/or if the mouse is wireless, its battery is low and should be replaced. Most laptops have a touchpad as part of the keyboard. If you want to use that instead of a physical mouse, just put the physical mouse away and use the touchpad. Both should be active unless the touchpad was disabled. If the touchpad is disabled, you can re-enable it by clicking on control panel > mouse > device settings tab > enable button.

Ppo1l dell latitude laptop mouse pointer keeps moving to top right corner. doesn't stay stationery


Your mouse pad is probably damaged.

Try to boot a different OS like Linux and see the behavior.

if the problem persist, you can disable the touchpad and use external mouse instead.

How do I disable the touch pad mouse


How to Disable aMouse Pad on an Asus Notebook

Touchpads are fairly standard equipment on laptops these days, in lieu of theolder "eraser-head" track buttons. Because laptops are typically notused in locations that are conducive to using a full- mouse, touchpads areused instead to allow the user to move the mouse pointer with a finger.Occasionally however, you may find yourself wanting to disable thetouchpad---perhaps while you are typing so that accidentally brushing thetouchpad does not reposition the typing cursor. Somewhat ironically, in orderto disable an ASUS laptop's touchpad, you first need to fully enable thetouchpad's software by installing the correct drivers onto your computer.
Instructions
I
nstalling theTouchpad Drivers
1. Open yourpreferred Web browser and navigate to the ASUS driver download page. 2. Select theproduct, series and model of your laptop using the drop-down menus on the ASUSwebsite and click the "Search" button. 3. Select your laptop's operating system andexpand the "Touchpad" category in the new page. 4. Click the"Global" option. This will bring up a "Download" dialog boxon your screen. Save the driver install file to your hard drive. Launch it whenthe file has finished downloading. 5. Follow theinstructions to begin the automated driver installation program. You may needto restart your computer to complete the installation.Disabling theTouchpad
1. Click the "Start" button and launchthe control panel from the start menu.
2.Click"Mouse" in the control panel window to open a new dialog box. 3. Click the "Device Settings" tab. 4. Select thetouchpad in the list of installed devices and click the "Disable"button. This will disable the touchpad.

I want to disable the touchpad on the acer aspire 5532 but cannot seem to do it please can you advise


You can disable it by doing one of these 2 steps:
1.If you want to uninstall the driver "FOR EVER" you can uninstall it from the device manager page from the search toolbar.
All the steps are down to see where is the uninstall button.
I prefer to backup driver using the free driver updater and backup DriverMax.


2. If you want just DISABLE it do the following:
Search for device manager
Click on Mice and other pointing devices tree,
there would be a touchpad driver usually its Synaptics
Disable it by clicking right click and then Driver tab and then disable button, you may see the disable button disabled, that is because you don't have another mouse instead of your touchpad, install your mouse drivers then you may can disable it.

How do I turn off the touch pad it over heats I like using the mouse instead.


You would probably want to go to control panel and then to mouse properties and you should be able to disable the mouse pad from there.

Hope this helps.

Hp Paviliion dv4-1365dx .....When I type all of a sudden the cursor will jump and I'll be typing into what I have already typed (just did it)....very frustrating HELP!


Unfortunately the touchpad of most laptops is very sensitive. This will cause the slightest nudge of the thumb or wrist to move your mouse and possibly even "click". In order to avoid this issue and associated frustration, I always 1) disable the touchpad when I have an external mouse plugged in and 2) disable the "tap click" feature. Follow the instructions below for these two suggestions.

Disable touchpad

  1. On my system there is a small button just above the touchpad that disables it, yours might as well. If not, go to Start>Control Panel> Mouse>Device Settings>and Device. Highlight the Disable Button.
  2. Follow the same steps as above but instead of Disable button select Device button and select the Tapping option and unselect "enable tapping".
Good Luck,

I have an Asus K60 Laptop.I can not figure out how to turn off the touch pad, as I am using a wireless external mouse instead of the touchpad on the laptop.Any clues?


Did you try the FN key and F9...
That is what they say to disable your touchpad

You have a function key which is called Fn That key allows you to use the functions on the F series keys

So Fn then F9 should do the trick

How do i turn off the internal mouse so i can just use a wireless mouse instead


internal mouse? if you mean the touch pad or that red ball thing thats in the middle of our keyboard, then i don't think you can turn those off. try going to Start>Control Panel>Printers and other hardware. maybe the option will be in there. if you want to use a wireless you need the USB "thing" and plug it in your laptop. you might have to put in a CD and install it first.
