Hi Guys I'm back.. I am having problems typing etc. when the Touchpad is active . I would like to disable it either temporariIy or permanently.
I have searched countless Web pages but no result. Some of the answers were : that there is a switch near the Touchpad OR you can press the pad for 20 or so seconds ,but this is not the case with my computer. I have checked the Control panel "Mouse" and "Keyboard settings and there are none at all. I have also checked to see if any of the fKeys had settings but no again. Apart from covering it up with Gaffer tape I am at a loss !
Come on you Guys you always have the answers! Cheers ejgippy..

Nah, dunno what's going on there mate. I've been bowling all weekend, in a carnival. I'll have a closer look at that tomorrow and let you know if I come up with anything.

Cheers.
