I want to disable the touch pad pointing device on my laptop, Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L6825. Note that the operating system on this machine is Windows 2000 (Not XP - Apparently these machines where optimized for XP - But thats a Long Story!!)
Problem is that when typing in a document and you accidently touch the touch pad the cursor jumps to a different location in the document and if you don't notice it immediately, you end up typing in the wrong place. I'm sure it sometimes also happen even without touching the pad so I'm not sure if this is some sporadic or imtermittend problem with the pad.
I want to disable the pad since I find this problem very annoying and I prefer to use a normal external mouse anyway. I just cannot find a place where I can disable the touch pad. My previous HP Compact laptop had a simmilar problem (so it looks like a general problem on laptops) but at least it had a button above the pad to turn it on or off. On this machine theres no such button.
Please help before I disable it with a hammer and a big screw driver!!!!!
