    Excuse me but I differ from you, because you have a laptop and right through the steps I explain, you have access to pointer configure devices on your computer, but my solution does not provide the necessary assistance can try another expert, It's been a pleasure to serve you and thanks for using FixYa.

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.

My Dell N4010 Laptop with Windows 7 software indicated a message of "touchpad disabled", and I can not manipulate the mouse.


You are confused. Your touch pad is disabled, but if you plug a mouse into the USB port, your PC will find it and install its software and you will be able to use the mouse To re-enable the touch pad, click on the Windows ball at lower left of desktop, Control Panel, Mouse, Touch Pad, Enable Touch Pad.

You should have a "FN" key on the keyboard and one of the "F" keys should have a symbol that looks like the touch-pad, hold FN while using this key should disable it, failing this in control panel, then mouse and pointers, you should have touchpad setting there should be a disable button/radius.
