If it's the dv6720, there should be a button at the top of the pad. Pushing it disables the pad.

For a more permanent solution, you can disable it in Windows--rt-clk my computer, lt-clk properties, lt-clk device manager, lt-click mice and other pointing devices, rt-click and select disable device (Synaptics PS2 touchpad is how mine shows).

You cannot disable touch pad on a function or fn all you have to do is a look for a licensed technician and let him disable your your touch pad. because there is no program store that you can disable your touch pad.but you can disable it physically. it is located inside the laptop.

I seem to be unable to disable the touchpad on my hp 6735b laptop. Please help!


You can disable the touchpad in the Windows device manager. Without knowing which operating system you are using, it's best to Google: "disable the touchpad on hp 6735b laptop."

I want to turn off the touchpad


HP and Compaq Presario laptop computers are made by the same company, so the hardware on certain models of each brand might be nearly identical. Many newer laptops, for example, use identical technology to control the touchpad, which in turn controls your mouse cursor. If you want to disable this touchpad use the software already installed on your PC.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Mouse." Click the "Device Settings" tab. Click on the listing for the HP touchpad to highlight it. Click the "Disable" button to disable the HP touchpad on your Compaq Presario laptop computer.

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...

XP installation problem - HP Cpmpaq 6720s Laptop [HDD detection error]


The hard disk is not detected because this model notebook has a SATA hard drive installed and the XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.
