I have a similar problem with a Vaio VGN-NR430E/L, except I want to disable the touchpad because I prefer to use a mouse and it is very annoying when I try to type and inadvertently hit the touchpad. If touched it moves the cursor and changes the point of typing and it is Very annoying. I have no way of disabling it since doing the clean install of Win7. Before, I use to disable it using the Vaio Control Panel and there was no problem, but that option is no longe available now. I tried the Vaio esupport site but found nothing later than Vista support, and that would not work when installed. Can you tell me if the Alps touchpad driver for Win7 allows you to disable the trackpad or anything else I might try?
