Use the touch pad arrow to open the touch pad icon in the tray, lower right of screen. The touch pad is right below the space bar.

SOURCE: Mouse pad

The program that controls the functions on the pad is called Synaptics. If the small red Icon does not show on your task bar, you can find it in program files. I had the same issue and turned it off. I forgot how I had done it so it took me a while to remember where to go to turn it back on. Right click the icon and go to properties. Then go to device settings and you can disable it or change settings however you like. Hope this helps you.

How do I disabled the touch pad and only use an external mouse and the keyboard on the lap top?


You do not have to actually disable the touch pad on this laptop to use an "external" mouse. Just plug in your mouse and it will install the drivers if needed and viola, your good to go. If you insist on disabling your touch pad however, you can do that by double tapping the top left hand corner, when you do this correctly, a little orange light will show and the screen will show a notification the the touch pad is disabled. To enable the pad back on, just repeat the same step you used to disable, and the on screen notification will indicate the touch pad is enabled!

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.

My computer comes on opens windows all looks ok as soon as i touch the cursor, nothing responds,


Make sure that the track-pad (mouse-pad) is not disabled. There should be a button located above the track-pad that allows you to disable or enable the track-pad. If not, I would use a USB mouse and then go into the Control Panel, mouse and change settings there to enable the track-pad.

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.

I am using my phone to ask this question.


Hello,

the touch pad is usually controlled by synaptic.

To turn it on back, press start menu from your key board and scroll to control panel.

From control panel, use the tab button to select the icons on control panel and go to mouse.

From mouse, use your keyboard to control to device settings.

From device settings, you would see synaptics touch pad, then press enable and that's all.

You touch pad would then be enabled again.

All the best.
