I just got my new laptop and something that annoys me a little is that when I am typing for long periods of time I often hit the touchpad by accident wich clicks buttons some times and stuff... I have an external mouse most of the time so is there a way of disableling it just with a few quick settings and if possible could I set it up so that when I hook up an external mouse that it disables automatically?

Thanks
Klink

Sorry forgot that.

Afternoon, Klinkaroo:
According to the manual for your notebook, you can toggle the touchpad by using the following key combination:

<Fn> + <F7> Touchpad toggle Turns the internal touchpad on and off.

I found this in the Aspire 5040 / 3040 User's Guide EN

Hope that helps. :thumbsup:
JC
