    Cannot disable touchpad in asus u47a laptop windows 7 hp/i7 core, tried everything listed, but when i get to the properties screen to disable it is greyed out. none of the hotkeys will do it either. i have usb mouse and would like to disable touchpad. the only option listed is uninstall. tried updating drivers, but says mine are up to date. thanks.

    You can disable it in Device Manager.

    Really? And it is still enabled?

    If you have the driver so that you can reinstall it when you want (or get the driver from Asus), then you can uninstall it and then disable it so that it won't be reinstalled.
