Testimonial: "I have upgrade Windows7 and, there is no any drivers for 6720s.... So I setup vista version and it works. Thank you for your guidance."
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).

Testimonial: "Thank you for your comment. :) I can't find any button on my touchpad... I think my laptop is not 'dv'6720s... But 'permanent solution' was good!"
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.

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.
