Answers :

Sounds like the touchpad driver you have is not the right one. Having a compatible one and the right one is the difference between XP and Vista. Also, sometimes on some laptops above, or below your touchpad, there should be a button. if you push the button, it should toggle between on or off..Or try to disable the "tap" feature in System Configuration, Peripherals, Touch Pad and be sure to click "Apply".

\015\012You can modify the xorg.conf file as follows,
\015\012As root edit:
\015\012/etc/X11/xorg.conf
\015\012In the touchpad stanza add the following lines...
\015\012Option "TapButton" "0"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
\015\012Then edit:
\015\012Option "VertScrollDelta" "0"
(if it wasn't already)
\015\012Save it, logout, reboot.

\015\012Last resort is to search microsoft knowledge base or your pc manufacturer. That seems to be a growing problem in vista but not seen in XP.
