I can't disable touch pad on my HP 250 G6 Notebook PC.
OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362
System Model HP 250 G6 Notebook PC
BIOS Version/Date Insyde F.52, 3/4/2019
I have tried doing the following:
1) There are no obvious on/off or Fshortcut buttons on my notebook. Some HP laptops have the touchpad on/off hidden inside the touchpad itself and when you hold your finger in the top left corner for 5 seconds you are able to disable/enable the touchpad. I've tried doing this and there is no illuminating light on my touchpad to indicate this functionality exists on my laptop nor is there an F9 shortcut for touchpad.
2) I've tried going to control panel > mouse > hover over touchpad and right-click and there is NO option to disable the touchpad. see pic By selecting "Properties" for the Touchpad the option to disable touchpad is grayed out. see pic 2
3) I've tried going into the BIOS Settings by pressing f10 upon start and I cannot find ANY option to disable "internal pointing device" anywhere in BIOS. Note: the BIOS was recently updated. With the previous BIOS version I was able to go in and find the "internal pointing device" option and disable it which is how I had my touchpad off in the past.
4) I've tried uninstalling the device driver but upon restart Windows re-installs the driver automatically.
