Can't disable ASUS mouse


You didn't post the Model of ASUS or the OS. Usually you have a on/off for the touchpad. A Function key combination, or some way to disable. If you go to the ASUS Support website, using your model number, you will find a User Manual which will come in handy, download it to Documents and save, or put a shortcut on your desktop.

Asus Laptop Touchpad trouble shooting


Step 1:
Touchpad Not Working in Laptop b> Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard. The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color. Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop. The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it. Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop. Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.

On laptops, sometimes your TouchPad is disabled for no apparent reason. To reactivate it, first try restarting your PC. If there's no good change just try:

We need the software driver and your mouse are installed

This trick works in Windows XP and Windows Vista.
  • Go to Control Panel> Mouse> Settings tab of the device
  • Click (or to disable)

Notes:
  • On some models, there is a keyboard shortcut to activate or deactivate the touchpad. For example, a ACER, just do Fn + F7.
  • You can click Reset device if neither of those solutions will work.
  • The official website provides synaptics drivers and software needed to run your TouchPad.
  • On the latest laptops, there is a special button to Enable/Disable the Touchpad.

How can i permanently disable the microsoft ps/2 mouse so that the touch pad is disabled? I have to manually disable it everytime I turn on my laptop. I am running Windows7


You shouldn't need to, however, if you're determined...

Follow all of the steps you would to change your cursor. However, instead of changing your cursor, tab over to 'Device Settings' and click on the name of your touchpad in the list. Then click Disable. Follow any confirmation windows (eg. Do you really want to disable your touchpad??)... and presto, your touchpad is now 'permanently' disabled (it can be re-enabled by going to that menu again and clicking 'Enable')

Hope this helps

How do I disable the touch pad mouse


How to Disable aMouse Pad on an Asus Notebook

Touchpads are fairly standard equipment on laptops these days, in lieu of theolder "eraser-head" track buttons. Because laptops are typically notused in locations that are conducive to using a full- mouse, touchpads areused instead to allow the user to move the mouse pointer with a finger.Occasionally however, you may find yourself wanting to disable thetouchpad---perhaps while you are typing so that accidentally brushing thetouchpad does not reposition the typing cursor. Somewhat ironically, in orderto disable an ASUS laptop's touchpad, you first need to fully enable thetouchpad's software by installing the correct drivers onto your computer.
Instructions
I
nstalling theTouchpad Drivers
1. Open yourpreferred Web browser and navigate to the ASUS driver download page. 2. Select theproduct, series and model of your laptop using the drop-down menus on the ASUSwebsite and click the "Search" button. 3. Select your laptop's operating system andexpand the "Touchpad" category in the new page. 4. Click the"Global" option. This will bring up a "Download" dialog boxon your screen. Save the driver install file to your hard drive. Launch it whenthe file has finished downloading. 5. Follow theinstructions to begin the automated driver installation program. You may needto restart your computer to complete the installation.Disabling theTouchpad
1. Click the "Start" button and launchthe control panel from the start menu.
2.Click"Mouse" in the control panel window to open a new dialog box. 3. Click the "Device Settings" tab. 4. Select thetouchpad in the list of installed devices and click the "Disable"button. This will disable the touchpad.

How do I disable touch pad when using a mouse? ASUS K50IJ Win7 64 bit


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable Touchpad movement or tapping. You can however drag the Mouse icon from the control panel to your Quick launch bar for quick access.

If that sounds too much effort, you may consider adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. This can be accessed from the Touch Pad tab of our mouse properties. Choose a low setting.

I have an Asus K60 Laptop.I can not figure out how to turn off the touch pad, as I am using a wireless external mouse instead of the touchpad on the laptop.Any clues?


Did you try the FN key and F9...
That is what they say to disable your touchpad

You have a function key which is called Fn That key allows you to use the functions on the F series keys

So Fn then F9 should do the trick

I have a big problem with my ASUS Eee PC 1000H. Its touch pad's buttons are not working.


Hi,
You may have inadvertently disabled the touchpad from within the operating system.
If the operating system is Windows get a USB mouse and plug it in, go to the control panel and look for mouse properties, see if its disabled.
If its not then the drivers for the touchpad could be corrupt.
All you need to do is go to Asus's support website, enter the model number, download and reinstall the touchpad drivers.


Hope this helps.

Jumping cursor


First, try to adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad in the control panel for the mouse. If this doesn't work you can just plug in an external mouse to disable the touchpad. If it still jumps, read the following.

This will involve opening the top part of the laptop. Usually there is a plastic piece holding down the keyboard. Directly above the keyboard. Use a flat head screwdriver to remove it.

Once you see the keyboard, then remove it. Just below that is the connection to the touchpad, undo it and just tape it to an area underneath the touchpad.
