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.

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.

  • How to make it turn off the touch screen?

    I don't want to use the touch screen. How to turn off the it? It is activated by all sorts of things, like my touch cat's tail, or an insect landing on it, or a curtain blowing against it. I don't type using the screen, I prefer the keyboard that I can not type quickly on the screen. I would like to turn off the touch screen when I use it not (most of the time), or even permanently - it is not useful for what I want to do that the screen is not as sensitive or as fast as the input devices that I usually use.

    Hi, I have a HP TouchSmart 320-1030, so it can work on your touch screen:

    1. Press Windows + X logo.
    2. Select Device Manager from the list.
    3. Click on the small arrow next to Interface devices to expand the list.
    4. Click the touchscreen driver (in my case, Voltron NextWindow touch screen).
    5. Right click and select disable from the list.
    6. Click Yes in the dialog box that asks you if you are sure you want to disable the touch screen driver.

  • Parameters for the turning off the mouse pad

    I have a Pavilion laptop dv7 (P/N VZ500PA #ABG) running Windows 7 and I want to use a mouse with it. I'm not entirely sure what the thing is in front of the keyboard is called (the one used when you do not have a mouse), but I want to know how to change the settings on my computer so that when I turn off the mouse pad thing, it REMAINS off the next time I turn on my computer. I know that it is possible to change the settings to do this, because it allows to do this before you change a lot of settings. It's really annoying that I have to press the button whenever I connect to Windows (if I did, then I find myself accidentally pressing the button as I type and accidentally he then clicks on things).

    If anyone can help me I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance.

    I contacted HP support by phone, and even if my laptop is out of warranty, they helped me!

  • How can S2340T, I turn off the touch function?

    I am running the S2340T monitor on a Windows Pro 8.1 System.  Touch calibration occasionally goes haywire, but I've always been able to open the tool pen and Touch and recalibrate.  Except that now, it doesn't seem to be "holding".

    As I rarely use the tactile aspect of the screen and am completely comfortable with my trackball mouse, I would just turn the tactile aspect * off *.

    How can I do this?  I know that you go to the Device Manager, but how to know what 'Human Interface' element it is?  I'm a gamer, so I have a * lot * of human interface elements.

    Welcome to the forums, Laurabeth!

    Fozzy said, there is no adjustment with the native device software to disable the touch screen, but there are some app you can find in AppWorld to achieve this.

    Such an application (which I use) is TalkLock, and function, it's just that... locks, the touch screen while you are online.  There are other apps that you will find to lock your device that are more customizable than just the phone, but for your application (and mine), TalkLock would be the way to go... very simple app.  Just install it and it works!

  • Is there a Windows API that I can use to turn off the touch screen of WIndows 8?

    It makes sense for a Tablet have a touchscreen. A valve system, I would like to live without a touchscreen.

    I would like to disable the touchscreen disabled if a machine is not in tablet mode. However, I can't find any API to do it on Windows 8. in Windows Mobile, there are APIs such as DisableTouch and EnableTouch. I wish I had such somethings on Windows 8 Pro. When the touch screen is disabled, the OS will never be aware of activity on the touch screen.

    Is anyway to do this?

    Thank you



    It seems that you want to disable the touch screen on a Tablet using the C++ programming language. I suggest that you post your question in the MSDN forums. The community on these forums is more experienced to answer questions related to the programming language.

  • Turn on/off the touch-pad

    Model name: HP Pavilion g4-1317

    Operating system: Windows 7 64-bit

    I want to turn the touchpad on or off. The cursor keeps jumping from one place to another and it is hard to type...

    There is a small circular depression, I tried double tapping, as almost everywhere in the leftcorner... It does not work! How can I activate it extinguished/turned on? Also I tried to download the driver for the synaptics touchpad, it fails to download each time...

    Help, please...

    Hi shwetz, welcome to the Forums of HP. I found 3 versions of the: g4-1317,I suspect that they have the same software available, I will use the "g4-1317AU" as a reference.

    I really hate this behavior as well when typing on a notebook. Especially with my big gloves, I can't help but the TouchPad for the life of me. Your TouchPad software should have special settings for "PalmCheck" and "Touch sensitivity", which could help aleviate the jitter that occurs when you type.  On mine I also have Auto-desactiver the TouchPad when I plug in an external USB mouse.

    Nevertheless, it should be able to be disabled. The instructions are in the "Disable the TouchPad" section in this document: use and configure the TouchPad (Windows 7 and Vista)

    If you can't turn them off, you may restore the original TouchPad drivers using this method: use of the Recovery Manager to restore the software and drivers (Windows 7)

    These are the correct drivers, if you want to download them and install them after you restore the original.
    Synaptics TouchPad Driver. You will need to uninstall the restored, if she complains to you when you try to install it.

    I hope this helps, I assure you that I have fought this battle before in my personal computer. I'm sure we'll get there, made me know how this turns out.
