Lenovo G700 can't disable touchpad

Hi, we have a Lenovo G700 running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Tried everything including a multitude of things from this and other forums and we cannot get the touchpad disabled.

Reinstalled drivers (Synaptic/elan, energy management etc), hotkeys off/on in bios, and more. Even after reinstalling the synaptics driver we are unable to see any of the extra management items in the mouse areathatwould allow us to alter anything with the touchpad. I am even unable to disable the mouse on ps/2 port in device manager.


All other function keys work except F6 (or Fn-F6)


Does anyone have any suggestions what the issue could be or how I can get the touchpad disabled without physically unplugging the thing from the motherboard?


Unit is less than 2 months old and this is really an irritation.

Re: Lenovo G700 can't disable touchpad

I found an alternate way to disable the touchpad. Look near the time display on windows and find the arrowhead to show hidden icons. press that. One of the icons is ELAN pointing device. Right click that and choose "Property of Touch-pad." Choose the ELAN tab. Click box to "Disable when external USB pointing device plug in." Click Apply. Click OK.

Re: Lenovo G700 can't disable touchpad

Thank you!! I use a separate mouse and constantly brush up against the touchpad with my arm or thumb and completely lose messages, change pages on the web, etc. It has been so annoying. I appreciate your help!
