    How can I disable the touchpad on an ASUS laptop?

    On my ASUS laptop I disable the touchpad by using fn-f9. The same keys restore the touchscreen function.

    I have tried the fn + f9 combination before. Tried it again just now. It doesn't work.

    Do you have the ASUS ATK package installed? If not download and install the appropriate package as below:
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/..._VER100050.zip for 32-bit systems
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/..._VER100050.zip for 64-bit systems.

    I downloaded the ASUS ATK package. Could not install it because a version was already installed. Uninstalled the existing version (which came with the computer when I bought it two weeks ago) and restarted. Installed the new ASUS ATK app and restarted the computer.

    fn f9 still does nothing.

    Could you fill out your system specs? At the moment you are listed as using a Lenovo PC. It would help if we could get the model of ASUS laptop you have.

    Should have done that. I have updated the specs for the laptop I'm struggling with.

    Two questions: 1. Is the model of your PC actually X555DA rather than just 555DA? 2. I see in your specs that you use a mouse, have you set the Smart Gesture software to disable the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in?

    I don't have Smart Gesture software installed. I shall download it from ASUS and see if that helps.
