Well my guess is you need 2 hardware profiles one with touchpad one without.


To create another profile
System properties (windows+pause)
Hardware tab
click on the hardware profile buton
create another profile named "without touchpad"

reboot

choose this profile
System properties (windows+pause)
Hardware tab
click on device manager
disable the touchpad driver

it should do the trick.


Ps : it's 200K per tips ;)
