Deactivate touch pad

I have a new Lenovo 3000 laptop (type 4446-36U).  I have attached a USB mouse and I use that almost all the time instead of the touch pad.  My question is whether their is a way to deactivate the touch pad so I don't cause a problem when I accidently touch it while typing.  I would like to be able to easily turn it back on if I don't have the USB mouse handy.

I suppose I could unistall the driver, but if I do this it will not be simple to turn it back on (especially if my wife is using the laptop).

 

Thanks for any advise.

Re: Deactivate touch pad

You can enable and disable the touchpad on the top of your computer, at the right side, there are 4 buttons, 3 of them for the volume, the las one is for the touchpad.

Hi Ana

 

Thank you very much. Finally I could get my touchpad working again. :smileyhappy:

I never noticed this silly button before.

How do you deactivate the touch pad on a Lenovo V570?  I prefer a track mouse as the touch pad does weird things.  Thanks a bunch.

Re: Deactivate touch pad

You can also go into the control panel ,select mouse .

 

At the right - Device setting - enable or disable - Apply - Ok

 

For some odd reason it still comes on occasionally - I have to keep going there even though it has disabled , I have to click ok .

 

Maybe it's a windows 7 thing .

Re: Deactivate touch pad

Actually, the disable option is "grayed out."  Is yours a V570?

No. I have 300 N100's.

 

Maybe yours needs a driver for it .

Thanks so much for trying to help.  I guess the V570 is different.
