Currently I use a mouse connected to my Laptop via a USB connection. To use the laptop on its own I followed these steps (Control Panel/Mouse/Touch Pad ON-OFF/Checked Enable/Clicked OK) then disconnected the mouse. The Touch Pad does not work. Have I made an error or have I missed something?
Please advise.

Regards, Mike

I also noticed a touchpad on/off utility you might try: A30TPADOnOffXP.exe
