Permanently Turn off Track Pad

I have a brand new Yoga 730-15IKB laptop running Windows 10 Home that I picked up to replace my older Yoga Thinkpad. I need help turning off the trackpad permanently. I use a mouse all the time and sometimes when I type, my palm hits the track pad and moves my cursor. Not a huge deal but I've been able to turn off the pad for good in the past. I've done some searching with no help. The steps I've taken so far are 

 

1. Disabled trackpad in Lenovo Vantage software. This stays off until I restart the PC. 

2. Disabled the trackpad in Device Manager. Again this works until I restart the PC. It even says it's still disabled in device manager after a reboot and the pad works. 

3. Download Synaptics Drivers. I saw it had options regarding the trackpad but they will not install on this laptop as the touchpad is not a synaptics touchpad. 

 

Any help would be greately appreciated.

Hi smp351!

 

Welcome to the community,

 

Disabling the touchpad in Device Manager, and in Lenovo Vantage are the alternative ways in doing so. Other step would be pressing Fn+F6 / F6, restart the laptop and check if it'll remain off.

 

Here are also some steps in removing the touchpad cable connector from the Motherboard that will permanently disable the touchpad (See attached photo).

 

Regards,

Lenovo has a good video on YouTube that provides several ways to do this:
