Try Fn + F8, might work on yours?

FN+F8 per the manual is the way to turn off and on your touch pad. So if your FN keys work then it should work to disable your touch pad.

Re: disabling touchpad on G530

Not on the G530.  That is not listed as an option in my G530 Users Guide.  I have tried it anyway, but nothing happens.  I also tried uninstalling the driver, but the last two times I did and restarted, it seems to be automatically reinstalling it at start up, and I don't know how to overcome that.  (I know some about computers, but not enough.)  Sigh.

Re: disabling touchpad on G530

Is this the user guide you read? http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/UserGuide/Guide_show_1227257349619.html chapter 2 page 12 shows the FN keys page 11 explains them. Maybe you should install all of the latest drivers on the website.

Re: disabling touchpad on G530

No.  My User Guide just has Lenovo G530 on the front, not 3000 G540/G530.
