    Hi,
    Hope this is the right forum.
    I have An ASUS K52F Notebook using Windows 7-64 bit as my OP
    I am also using an external mouse
    According to the user manual, I can disable the touch pad using the Fn and F9 keys
    I tried pressing the keys together and I can’t disable touch pad.
    The manual also says that I can go to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Mouse and under the ELAN tab click on the “Disable when external USB mouse plug in”
    But I don’t have the tab. I tried to uninstall the external mouse, reboot, and the tab is still not there.
    Is there any other way to disable the touch pad (without the use of a hammer)

    Mike

    The hot keys won't work if the Hotkey utility or the ELAN software is missing.

    Go to the Asus website and reinstall the ELAN touchpad software, that should get you the disable option under the mouse section. If the hot key doesn't work then reinstall the "ATKACPI driver and hotkey-related utilities" software under the Utilities section.

    Hi Triple6
    Yea, It worked
    I downloaded and ran ELAN from your link and the tab showed up in the control panel under the mouse tabs

    The Fn F9 still doesn't work but I will go back to the Utilities section when I have more time.

    Thanks for your help
