new hardrive-can't disable laptop mousepad

Hi, I recently had to get a new hardrive on my laptop. Before this change, I disabled the laptop mousepad and used a regular mouse. I disabled it by going to control panel, clicking on mouse and disable something called 'elan'. (sorry, not computer literate LOL) . Anyway, since the hardware change, this elan option is not there. I am still using the regular mouse but the laptop mouse is still going, driving me crazy!
Thanks for any help you can give me!!

What is the make and model of your laptop? Most laptops have a FN key combonation to press to turn off the mouse pad on the laptop. On my Samsung it's the Fn key combo is Fn + F10.

Mine is toshiba. I have found on another site that I'm suppose to be able to press FN and F10 together, but it's not working.

Maybe you should check the Toshiba website & download the mousepad driver for your make & model.
