How to disable touchpad on Dell M70
Posted on 2006-06-15
I have a Dell M70 running XP Pro. I want to disable the touchpad. The M70 User Manual gives the following instructions: "You can use the Mouse Properties window to disable the touch pad and track stick or adjust their settings. Open the Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Mouse. In the Mouse Properties window: Click the Device Select tab to disable the touch pad and track stick." I can get to Mouse Properties by going to Control Panel / Mouse not Control Panel / Printers & Faxes (there is no "Printers and Other Hardware"). Once in the Mouse Properties window, there is no "Device Select" tab. There is a Hardware tab that lists a PS/2 compatible and an HID-compliant mouse, but no touchpad. Does anyone know how to do this?
