SOLVED: TouchPad Acer Coding Snack
« on: September 08, 2014, 02:05:33 PM »
I need a bat or an ahk for :

I have a acer laptop and usually i have the mouse connected. Every time I turn on the laptop I have to press the key ton inhabilitate the touch pad from my laptop.

When I go to the dispositive administration i see the device : Alps Pointing-device

It's not possible to inhabilite. Only uninstall.
So if I have two bats :
1. One to put in the startup folder to uninstall the driver so the touchpad don't go after the next initiation......
2. The second to install again the Alps Pointing-device

Do you know how to do this ?

I can't vouch for this in any way but a google search turned this up - http://touchpad-blocker.com/

I am going to take a good look, but the matter is solved from yesterday i'm gonna to tell how i get without notice until yesterday.
The driver have an excecutable in the system

When I try to uninstall the system ask for reiniate and after that a new icon goes to the system tray. When i see this icon the problem eas solved.

I wasn't aware of this program.  Some Laptops have a setting built in.  But it's kind of like a dog lifting his leg.  You have to learn about it from someone with that model who knows the key or setting.  In the case of my Toshiba a press of F9 key does it. (Or Fn F9 if you don't have Fn key set to normal function key mode.)
