How to disable touchpad on Compaq notebook?

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there know how to disable the touchpad on a Compaq 6910p notebook? I checked the mouse settings in the control panel and there's nothing. I did a quick search online and tried another suggestion to check the BIOS settings, but I didn't find it there either. It has the annoying feature of having a tap on it be the same as a left mouse click, and it's very sensitive. My hp notebook has a button above it to just turn the touchpad off, and it doesn't have the tap to click functionality. It's driving me nuts... Any help is appreciated.

Normally there is a button near the touchpad on the keyboard to turn it off and on.

Otherwise it should be in the Control Panel somewhere.

I believe it's in the control panel under the mouse settings.

It's a CMOS setting, so you have to reboot the box and hit F10 to turn off the Touchpad.

Also try fn+f5 that might toggle it off an on

He did say he was in the Bios (CMOS). wink

If you go to the control panel, double click the mouse settings, go to the hardware tab you should see two devices (if you have a mouse pluged in). One says mouse and the other is touchpad. Highlight the touchpad and click on properties. Now go to the driver tab on that window. Click the button that says "disable" and you should be good to rock and roll. smirk

I have Vista on my laptop at home. Didn't check an xp machine but should be simular.

It had the mouse I have plugged in, and a PS/2 Compatible mouse listed (nothing referring to Touchpad). I disabled the PS/2 one, restarted, and lo and behold the touchpad is no longer active. I saw them both before, but I just assumed that it was referring to the one that I use when it's docked at work. Thanks Sandmannd!

I have an HP laptop with XP here that I am using. To disable tapping go to control panel, mouse, then to the tab that says device setting and that will bring up a screen that has some items on the left side and one of the items, if you click on tapping it will give you the option to uncheck tapping.

My homeone is an HP as well and I have all those settings, but the Compaq one for work doesn't. I'm able to disable it by what I described above.

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
