I want to disable the touchpad and use the external mouse exclusively


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...

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 can disable touchpad of my COMPAQ Presario CQ42 laptop


On most Compaq's of the CQ42 model type, there should be a little light on the top right hand corner of the touchpad, not much bigger than a pinhead. When the touchpad is active the light is out so you shouldn't see the lamp. Quickly double tap the area on the lamp and it should light up. This is an indication that the touchpad is now not active.

Compaq presario cq60 labtop- the touchpad mouse goes crazy!


os? vista, 7, x64??? ok lets get to a base point. you had a different mouse, is it still installed? Is the dongle still plugged in? are the drivers loaded? uninstall drivers in control panel. remove all traces of every other mouse, pad, pointers, etc from your cq60. in device manager you should show Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad under MICE AND OTHER POINTING DEVICES. if after reboot the touchpad is still not working then right clock the Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad in the device manager and select uninstall. reboot. let me know when you get to that point.

There is no touch pad device setting in my laptop in order to disable my touchpad but my touch pad is working


Most of the time the settings are either found in the control panel and then mouse or else in start > all programs> and control (sometimes Catalyst center) you can also right click the pointing device in the taskbar and in device settings it will allow you to disable it from here.

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.
