    Good Morning people...Hope someone can help me...

    I have the Toshiba laptop, and don't know if this is the right thread for this question or not. I have a wireless mouse that I like using...and I want to know how to disable the mouse that is on the laptop. the Accu-point keys, as they are called I think ..it has the little "button in the center of G,H & B. of the keyboard. and the other "buttons" below the keys on the hand rest place as I will call it. I got out the manual but nowhere could I see where I could disable these buttons. Can they be?

    Thanks sherri:confused:

    actually, shouldnt matter...go to the control panel and choose mouse..toshiba says you should be able to change to ps2 or usb from there.

    I don't know about Toshiba's but with Dell laptops there is no way to disable the onboard pointing stick in bios. However if a ps/2 mouse is plugged into the back mouse port there is no problem using both. Have you tryed plugging in the new mouse to see if it will work?

    Okay JToast.....My wireless is running and working fine for me...I just want to disable the keyboard mouse and pointer because everytime I lay my hands on the front "resting area" of the laptop...I hit those buttons, and it screws up what I have on my screen. I would just prefer to not even have them "mobilized". But thanks anyhow

    no, i mean toshibas website says that you should be able to disable the tap function, etc in the mouse settings so that you dont have that problem .
