Windows 7: Turning off touchpad

Turning off touchpad

I just got a new laptop, switched to Windows 7, and this touch pad is driving me nuts. I went through this process on my old laptop, and it was simply an issue of getting a different driver, but I don't know which. Can you help?

I am using a HP Envy 17 j120us with Windows 7

Synaptics Touchpad drivers installed, do the following:
  • Open Mouse Properties (Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Mouse)
  • Select Device Settings tab
  • Select Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached:

This will disable touchpad always when a USB mouse is connected and enable it again as soon as a USB mouse is disconnected. If USB mouse is present at boot, touchpad will be automatically disabled.
