It also looks like if you have the latest or newer synaptics touchpad driver, you won't be able to disable it:

And after doing a little more research the laptop has "touch sensitive" buttons above the keyboard to disable the touchpad.  Have you tried pressing or touching it?

WakeupSpecialist 1Commented:
See if there is an option in the bios to disable it?  Or check to see if your touchpad/mouse drivers have the ability to disable the touchpad?

Some notebooks have a disable button located above the touchpad?  

See pictures here from HP:

It is #4 in the picture.

Glad I was able to help...might you add your explanation on what may have resolved your issue?
Was it the synaptics driver?  or was it one of the touch sensitive buttons?
