    My laptop came with an Elantech touchpad and the 5.0.3.6 driver. I cannot get the touchpad to disable tapping even though I've disabled it on the touchpad tab. There is no BIOS setting (Phoenix). Does anyone know if a different driver will correct the situation -- or a work-around?

    Thanks
    Walt

    On my HP laptop, updating its Synaptics touchpad driver fixed that exact problem. Elantech may have a similar update. Check laptop mfg's site first, Elantech's site second.

    (Note: it is possible that there is a driver update which addresses the issue but makes no mention of the fix in the description. Be sure to create a Restore Point before applying [any] update!)
