Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

How do I partially lock my touch pad so that my palm doesn't screw things up when I type and accidentally touch the pad?

\015 I have a Pavilion DV7. I want to partially lock the touchpad so that the cursor still moves, but I'll click the left bar on the bottom to choose what I want to open. Now when my palm drags across the keyboard, I either am typing in a strange place or opening things I don't want to. In my manual there are no instructions and I can't find anything in the control panel. HP in India had me on the phone for 25 minutes and couldn't understand what I wanted. My 5 year old notebook had that capability so this one MUST!\015

Answers :

If you look at your touchpad, you will notice a small elongated button, right above it. When you push the button, it will lock the touchpad. However, it will lock it entirely, until you unlock it. You will not be able to move the cursor or click on anything. I don't think HPs have the ability to "partially" lock the touchpad. At least, I was never told anything about it while I was working for them.
