Re: HOW DO I DISABLE MY TOUCHPAD MOUSE?

I have the Toshiba Satellite E-205, and had the same problem.  Try this:

 

Control Panel->Mouse->Device Settings

 

There should be a box that says "Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing devise is attached."  If you check the box, your internal touchpad and mouse buttons should be disabled when you attach a USB mouse.

 

Hope this helps.

FN F9 doesn't work nor is there anything in mouse on control panel that would disable it.

 

So, how can I disable it w/o pulling about the computer?

Its usually handled in the Touchpad driver software. You can access it via Programs or it should be available in the Control Panel under Mouse and Pointing Devices.

Thanks very much. This also worked on my HP laptop. I think the 11 word name throws people off!
