Is there a way to turn of the touch pad on a Compaq Presario M2108US, asking for a friend that finds it a pain and is using a mouse.

Start, control panel, pointing devises, select touch pad and click disable. You can also right click on touch pad icon in task tray and click on properties, click on touch and click on disable. :thumbsup:

Would want to do this as well, do you disable it before installing USB mouse, or after?

Well after because you need the USB to do it.

You should not have to worry about disabling the pad. On the laptops I have used the mouse works just by plugging it in to the USB port. After the O.S. discovers it,good to go.
Where ever you go.................. There you are
