    Hello people. I would like to request assistance.
    I need to disable the touchpad on my Asus G74Sx notebook. Is there some kind of program I can download that will allow me to disable the touchpad? I used to have a program that allowed me to do so, but when I google it now, I don't get any results that will allow me to download that program, it was called FspUip.exe


    Pressing function F9 does not disable the touchpad, and going into the BIOS and disabling the internal pointing device also disables the keyboard.



    I have downloaded all the drivers for my notebook numerous times, and I don't know what else to do to try to turn off this touchpad. Going into the control panel and disabling the touchpad that way, also doesn't work.


    Please assist me

    if you have a wired or wireless mouse installed with the manufacturers driver software, In Control Panel - Mouse - Hardware, there should be a box to select disable touch pad when external mouse is detected. I have this setting with both my laptops running Win 7 and Win 8.1.

    Have you downloaded the ATKACPI driver from the Asus website?
