Is there a default way Touch Pad OFF! Pavillion g7

I just bought a g7 Pavilion and the touchpad is driving me crazy.  I am looking for a button or which would make the touch pad OFF by default instead of having to double click it everytime I open the lid.  I said there is no setting for it, but I hope that someone has found something.  I use an external mouse and want this thing off, it drives me crazy!


Hey there,

I did a little research and found this video that should help you.

  • turn off the touch pad hp pavillion


    I have a HP pavilion g6-2240sq with windows 7.

    In the instructions that came with the laptop it says touch quickly 2 times a circle in the top left of the touch pad to turn it off. I tried, but it does not work.

    I want to disable the Touchpad, cause it gets in the way of typing.

    Can someone help me please?

    Thank you!


    It seems that you can run Windows 7 on a system designed for Windows 8 and you run without drivers TouchPad.

    HP Pavilion g6-2240sq Notebook PC Drivers & Downloads

    This does not explain it.  No worries.  This is not my personal specialty;  I have a couple of options for you.  If none of them does not work because the pilots have not features you need or the drivers don't work well on your machine, we can ask for additional help.



    • You might try your driver for Windows 8 running in compatibility mode.  Lot of software works in compatibility mode - if the driver for the TouchPad will be happy if this is something you can try or no--a personal choice.

    Download and do not install the device:

    Synaptics TouchPad Driver sp61882

    How to install and run the drivers / software Compatilbility Mode:

    Drivers and software compatibility by AttackOfZaq mode running


    Try this Windows 7 driver for a similar computer of the g6:

    Synaptics TouchPad Driver sp53851

    • Download and press twice on the installation package
    • Restart / reboot the computer after installation


    For something like this, it is best if you have an external mouse attached - it's common sense and not because of something flakey on occur.  It's like the race without a disc of recovery and personal backups: you can get away with it for years and then ONE day, Poof - here you are with a blank screen and no way to recover your data.

  • Is there a a way to turn off the screen while using a DOS program?

    I have an A4 and recently when you use a program to BACK hard drive (which may take several hours) I found that I was unable to turn the display off.

    Of course, the usual display controls depend on Windows but surely there must be a way to do this in the BACK?


    I don t think that there is a way to use a DOS program. All Toshiba and public services programs are designed for Windows OS and they work only in Windows environment.
    I m no programmer but I think it s is not possible.
    Moreover you will not find any solution to your problem. There are users looking for solutions to common problems and questions.
    In my opinion, look for a solution in forums for programmers and software developers.

    Good luck

  • Touch pad issues on nine Pavilion x 360

    I just bought a brand new HP Pavilion 13-a010dx x 360. After a few days the lower part of the touchscreen Tablet felt loose, especially on the left hand side. From the beginning I had problems with the mouse jumping around, Windows restore, change the size of the screen etc. I played with the sensitivity of the touch pad, off settings by attaching masking tape and all the gestures with multiple fingers, but it still occurs. It's really frustrating because there are less than three weeks, I bought the laptop.

    I have to get the touch pad replaced?

    Thank you

  • How to change the default setting for the touch-pad?

    I have a HP Pavilion dv7 running Windows 7 Home Premium.

    I use it 99% of the time on your desktop, using a mouse instead of the key.

    Sometimes I forget to turn off the key by using the small dot in the upper left corner, which causes the movement of the cursor unexpectedly.

    Question: Is there a way to reset the value by default for the touch-pad to be inactive, and use the small point to activate the key only if I use the computer in a remote location?

    Thanks for any help on this.


    Hi Larry,

    See if you have the following option.

    Open windows control panel, open the mouse, click the device settings tab and then click on the button "settings".  Click on the + next to the Touchpad disable Zone, and then click top left Action.  Click on the radio button for TouchPad Switch Off, click on apply and then click Ok.  Click apply and then click OK in the remaining window.

    This should enable the TouchPad on/off function to remember, so if you turn it off, it will be turned off after a reboot.

    Kind regards

  • Touch pad to turn off Windows 7 when the mouse remotely installed as I could in Windows XP

    In Windows XP, I could go to control pannel, mouse and click to Disable Touchpad when another mouse was attached.  It would be automatically on the touch pad if no mouse was attached USB.  I couldn't locate any method or the answer that allowed a change of software touchpad in Windows 7.

    I had an old Dell D820, installed Win7 and couldn't find a way to disable the touchpad and keys/stick.  Based on other suggestions, I went to the Dell website and downloaded the drivers Vista (Win7 drivers not available).  As soon as he installed and rebooted, I had an icon in the Sys Tray (by the clock) that I could then select a setting to turn off when the external mouse connected.  So for those who said it is a pilot thing, I agree with them.

  • Portege R930 - Touch Pad on / off button does not work


    R930 nine (PT330A) and a minor but annoying thing... the small button above the touch pad and below the space bar for the Touch Pad on / off does not work. I can't find the configuration options for this anywhere. Fn + F9 works very well.

    Not much, but I like things to work! And this button would be very convenient for a quick switch.

    Thank you

    Can you use the Toshiba? I think you should have the button eco and presentation on this machine.

    Check please if you can enable/disable these keys in the HWsetup tool.
    I don t have Win8 machine, but I think that all these buttons can be enabled/disabled.

    Please, check and send comments.

  • Since the update to 2015 CC, "Save for Web" crashes whenever I have it try. Is there a new way to save pictures off in many sizes?

    Hey everyone, since I've updated for Creative Cloud 2015, whenever I have tried to use the option 'Save for Web', Illustrator will crash all trying to render the preview. I understand that save for web was marked as legacy in Photoshop - so I feel this feature is on its way out the door. So, I was wondering if there is another way to save an image in many sizes? It was my main reason to use save for web. Under export I don't see the option for several sizes. Thank you!


    Personal Adobe works with issues save for Web, but it can take some time.

    Some have re-established CC 2014 because of this.

    If uninstalled, you can reinstall CC 2014.


    Or from the tab versions in the app management CC using the CC Office management application, you should be able to go to the top gear icon on the right. Find the Illustrator set up and that there should be an option of previous Versions that you can develop.

    Or go to your console CC > menu APPS, then scroll down to find additional applications and the right to it see you blue text (probably all applications.) and choice of menu, open it and jump a little below in black letters menu (video, etc.) there is a blue line SEE the PREVIOUS VERSIONS, click on it, you will see the names of all the software without number , click on install and you will see all earlier versions to install according to your choice.

    You can also see how to post #20 by Drawingbuddy in this thread:

    Otherwise you might get drawn to help here.

    Our Adobe staff friends are busy to 2015 CC research questions, so I hope the dust will settle soon and everything will be fine.

  • Is there a way to turn off Red Eye Auto size?

    Is there a way to disable the red eyes ' size and position detection.  After that I gently drag a circle perfect around the eye, it's really annoying to have Lightroom resize and reposition the circle.  It is logical that the size of the auto kick if I click on an eye, but not when I drag a selection.  Hope it makes sense, and I hope there is a solution.

    There is no way to disable automated red-eye tool aspects.  But you can adjust the area of selection.  Ideally, you should align the point of focus/red with the center of the pupil, click on and then adjust the size and location.  If you are still not satisfied then I would suggest using another tool like the adjustment with a combination of desaturation brush and exposure/brightness reduced until the student is not red and black.  It would give you more control, but cost you more time.

  • Satellite A660 - touch pad / stop and other buttons do not work

    Dear people on this forum,

    Recently, about 3 weeks ago, I turned on my computer and I cleaned out the dust because it was overheating.

    about 2 weeks before, I noticed that my touchpad is not working and the buttons at the top of the page do not work, there is no light (multimedia audio buttons wireless) I can't activate/deactivate or either, I don't know how. I don't know if the problem because I cleaned my laptop and has not logged a few threads back but I included this detail because I do not use these buttons if I haven't noticed if they were on. but he said: 2 days ago, I don't know how my wireless exploded Ant when I press fn + f8 (wireless) wireless communication switch is turned off, which is one of the buttons is not working (upstairs next to / switch even with my touch pad)

    I tried the following:

    Windows Update
    turn off the computer, remove all cables and battery and wait for about 30 minutes. Then then hold down the button for 30 seconds
    Reinstall the support flash cards, hw Setup utility / value pack
    and finally a Toshiba out of the recovery of the box using the recovery of 2 cd product

    I don't know what to do next. It's either:

    try something else
    or is there a wire is connected both touchpad and the buttons at the top and I have to open my laptop and connect them.

    Please answer as to my next step to get my wireless.

    Please don t get me wrong, but I don t know how to help you now. Disassembly of the laptop is to only authorized persons and if you do it on your own there is always a risk that something may be hurt or may be damaged.

    OK, I must also say that I also removed my machine too but I got lucky and everything is OK as before.
    I put t know how A660 looks inside, but the principle is still the same and I can't imagine you have whatever it is damaged.
    You know very well that we cannot say much about your problem. What you need to do now is the final test of functionality and install original recovery image that you got with your laptop. Test the functionality with the factory settings. If the problem is still there, I m afraid you must open for new laptop and check if everything is connected correctly.

    Last option is to contact the service and ask for help.

  • Tecra A3X-112: Fn + F1... Touch pad to work stoppage

    Hello everyone,

    I have a Tecra A3X-112 on which Windows XP has been recently reinstalled.
    I installed Windows XP before with other different copies, but this is the first time that I've known a few misadjustments.

    My problem is that the combined with F1, F2... Fn keys stopped working, as well as Assist bottom on top of the keyboard.
    In addition, the touchpad works, but I cannot turn it off.

    I've been looking at the posts of some other users, and it seems that it is a problem to download the proper drivers from Toshiba Web page.

    My question is: what drivers for the keys?

    a. for * Fn + function keys * should I intalled * utilities * or * Hotkeys utility for display devices? * There are even some users who recommend to installed a BIOS update or a common Module driver, but I'm not sure about this. By installing the appropriate driver, are all combinations FN + function keys work, or only some of them?
    b. for * Touch Pad *, should I intalled only * Touch Pad on / off utility * or * Touch Pad Driver * is also necessary?
    c. for * help the bottoms? *

    Send me the answers, please.
    Thanks in advance for your help.


    The features of FN keys depend on several different factors. As a first step, it is important to have installed common modules. She is named for the other Toshiba designed tools and utilities.
    Just for example: for the use of the keys FN + F2 (standby power options), you need to install modules common and tool watch.
    While the first step I recommend to install common modules again.
    When you are finished, check the functionality of the FN and post the result.

    For FN + F9, you need to install TOSHIBA Touch Pad on / off Utility. Before that, it must be installed ALPS Pointing - device Driver.
    You know, it's not easy to simply offer a solution to this. All the drivers, tools and utilities must be installed in order to good facilities. After having done that, everything should work well.

    One thing, to help buttons try with TOSHIBA controls again.

  • Left click the Satellite C660 Touch Pad/buttons does not work

    Hi guys!
    I own a Toshiba Satellite C660 (of course: P) anyway. Today, I was just doing what I do usually on my laptop,
    when suddenly the left button of the mouse has stopped working. (Bare with me, it's very weird to explain xD!) Also I can not 'left click' on my touch pad. I can still move the cursor with the touchpad and right click with the right button.

    I tried slightly shaking incase of crumbs, or something. Although I never eat around my laptop. It is not difficult to grow as there is something under it, it just doesn't work!

    In summary, I can't left click. But I'm able to move and made a click right, weird!

    For the moment I have my USB mouse plugged in my computer and it works fine, but it is very annoying!

    Sorry if I don't explain it too well!

    Help, please!

    On this virtual path, it is not easy to say what the problem is here. It is not easy to tell if the left touchpad button is faulty or disabled in some way.

    As a first step, you should check all the settings for the touchpad. If your laptop computer has preinstalled software check Synaptics all parameters associated with the touchpad buttons.
