I'm having a little problem here dealing with the two mice on my laptop. It's a Dell Inspiron 5100, with a Synaptics touchpad built-in and a Microsoft Wheel Optical USB mouse plugged into the system. I want to disable the touchpad, since one of it's buttons is broke (it keeps automatically clicking with no input from me at random times). HOWEVER: - I need the Synpatic drivers installed in order to disable the device (If someone can point me to a guide that can disable the touchpad in the 5100's BIOS, all the better). I can't install the Intellipoint Drivers because the Synpatic drivers are already installed. However, that means without the Microsoft drivers, my Microsoft's mouse's scroll settings keep getting reset everytime I boot. - If I have the Microsoft mouse drivers installed first, then install the Synaptic ones, the menu for the Synpatic device properties is broken, meaning I can't disable the touch pad (or the drivers' annoying icon). ARGH. So can anyone help out here? Is there a way I can disable the touchpad AND keep my external mouse's scroll settings from resetting all the time?
