laptop mouse pad issue

So I hate that when I tap the mouse pad on my laptop while i'm typing that it clicks. I only use my wireless mouse anyway. Where can I turn this feature off? or turn the mouse pad off all together?

You can have the touchpad disabled in cpanel>mouse> disabled when usb pointing device is... or disabled all the time.

hope this helps

There might be a setting in the BIOS to disable it.

@ ken: By the looks of his picture, he has the default drivers included in Windows for his touchpad (more than likely a Synaptics Touchpad).

@OP Install the drivers from your computer manufacture...it will give you additional options for touchpad (those seen in Ken's pic). Just disable it there

Is there a way to adjust double tap sensitivity without the Synaptic driver? When I install it it acts really funny, very twitchy and completely unusable. I prefer the default drivers because at least the cursor works fine, but double tap is far too sensitive.

How to turn off my mouse touchpad?

My mouse properties looks like dblank's.

There wasn't a setting in bios to disable it.

My computer manufacturer does not have drivers for windows 7. I tried installing older drivers from vista and that didn't work.

My touch pad is a ALPS Touchpad Pointing Device.

Please help me disable this.
