You can go into the device manager on windows from the control panel and right click on the touch pad device listing. Then select disable this device. This will stop the touchpad from working until you re-enable it again.

The cursur jumps all over the place when I type in lenovo e530

Make sure you disable or turn off the touchpad when you are typing. You are accidentally hitting the touchpad when typin that causes your cursor to be erratic. I suggest to plug in a mouse and disable the touchpad.

Keyboard unlock

Like most modern laptops, IBM/Lenovo laptops feature a built-in touchpad that you can use as a substitute for an external mouse device. If you experience a non-functional or "locked" touchpad, then you have one of two possible problems; either the touchpad's drivers are corrupt or a user has manually locked the touchpad. In either case, you can unlock your touchpad and restore it to functionality quickly.

Open your web browser and paste the following URL in the address bar:

Click the "Download" button and then click "I agree" to save the Lenovo touchpad driver installation file to your computer. Double-click the EXE file that you downloaded. Doing so opens the driver's installation wizard. Follow the on-screen prompts to re-install your Lenovo's touchpad drivers. If your locked touchpad is due to a corrupt or outdated device driver, then your touchpad is now unlocked and functional. Activate Touchpad Hold the Windows logo key and press the R key to open a run command box. Type "control mouse" in the box and press Enter. The Mouse Properties control panel window opens. Click the "Device Settings" tab. Click the Lenovo Touchpad in the "Devices" list and click the "Enable" button to activate the Touchpad. Click the "OK" button to save your changes. Your Lenovo's touchpad is unlocked and ready for use. Lenovo support

Lenovo SL500 mouse pad want to lock in window XP. how can do that?

Hi. I think you should press and hold the Function(Fn) key then press F8 key on your keyboard to disable or enable your touchpad. If this doesnt work I think you should download first the drivers for your touchpad and then you can proceed with the steps i mentioned. Also you could disable it by accesing the device manager on your laptop then disable your touchpad. You could also do it by going to the control panel and its under the mouse settings, then from ther you can disable it.

Touchpad & lower 'mouse' buttons do not work

There is a button on the laptop which re-enables the touchpad. It's either next to the touchpad, or you must hold down the Fn button and press one of the function keys at the top.
