Microfsoft windows 7 home premium edition (64bit)
 
 

It is a ELAN PS/2 port smart pad.
I was a little afraid to disable the driver as my husband uses the pad occasionally, can it just be enabled again when he want to use it ?

According to the user's manual for the G560, the keyboard action to disable/enable the touch pad is Fn+F6
Another possibility is here:

Hello, thank you for your tips, I have tried both suggestions. In the mouse menu with in the Elan tab it shows disabled and disabled when USB mouse is in, neither FN +8 or FN +6 work either - bless it, it is still merrily galloping around the screen.

Then plug in the USB mouse and make sure it's driver shows up under Mouse in Device Manager.

Set a System Restore point. System Restore Point - Create - Windows 7 Forums

Next click on Smart Pad driver tab to Disable it and see if that solves the problem.

According to the manual for your laptop, Fn+F6 will disable/enable the touchpad.

Hello, yes I read that in my manual and tried it - several times, but unfortunately my machine seems to think it knows better

Go back into msconfig>Startup or CCleaner>Tools>Startup and look for a touchpad listing that was disabled and re-enable it to see if hotkey Ztruker found for you will work.
