I have an USB mouse hooked up and would like to disable my Touch Pad, and everything I try doesn't work (double tap left corner, hold down on left corner for 5 seconds.) None work. Please help because everytime I try to type I move the mouse by mistake and type in wrong area because the pad moved the cursor. Thanks
