Re: Disable touchpad with mouse connected

I/'m working on a VAIO VCPEA24FM and need a solution, too. I don't have VAIO Control Center due reinstall of Windows 7 after a HDD failure. I downloaded the driver mentioned, but don't see where settings are.

It isn't there.  It doesn't exist on our computers.  Sony doesn't care because they're out of the computer business now.

 

Go to this website and download the free touchpad blocker:

 

htt p:/*****-bl***er.com/

 

It solves 98 percent of the problem.  I've been using it for about two years, safe and effective.

Re: Disable touchpad with mouse connected

Thank you for this, however, it is not quite the solution I need.  If one wants to use the touchpad, but you just need it to be less responsive, then this might be just the ticket.  But I want to use a mouse all the time, not the touchpad at all.  All the best....

Hi, Miztrniceguy

 

Welcome to Sony Community! 

 

We're sorry to hear this issue. How did you reinstall Windows 7 on your VPCEA24FM? Did you use a recovery disc to reinstall it? Have you tried running Vaio Update and Windows Update? 

 

Regards,

 

Vincent

Hi Vincent,

 

This may be a solution for Miztrniceguy, but not for me.  I am running windows 10, not windows 7 and it is completely up-to-date.  Vaio update does not work.

 

Thanks anyway.

Re: Disable touchpad with mouse connected

I didn't have a recovery disc. Not my laptop.  Recovery was not possible.  Believe me, I spent many hours with Macrium Reflect  attempting. I had to do a fresh install from a retail boxed version of 7 Pro that Microsoft gave me based on the Windows Key that was previously installed.  I did all the Windows updates . There's no VAIO software installed.
