When you turn on your notebook computer, there will be an option to enter "Setup" or "BIOS settings". Press the appropriate key to enter the BIOS. If this option is not available, contact the notebook vendor. Within the BIOS, there should be an option to change the PS/2 setting to "disable the internal TouchPad if an external PS/2 mouse is present. The internal TouchPad will be deactivated only when an external PS/2 pointing device is connected. After removal of the external device, the TouchPad's advanced features may not be available until after reboot.
