Hey guys, for a long time I was getting quite annoyed at my notebook (laptop). When I plugged in the USB mouse, the touchpad would remain active, essentially giving me two mice. I don’t like the touchpad so much as I tend to knock it occasionally when I’m typing.
But of course, there are times when the touchpad is more convenient - in a car for example, where there’s no surface for a proper mouse~
Time goes on, and 2 days ago, I noticed that the touchpad wasn’t working. “Great!” I think, “Finally the computer recognizes the USB mouse and disconnects the touchpad.” Didn’t make anything of it.
Then, last night, the notebook was booting up, and I was idly moving the cursor with the touchpad - yup, normal. But when Windows loaded up further, it disconnected the touchpad again. This time with no mouse in the USB port~
I haven’t been going through the computer and mucking with any settings. I haven’t installed any new software, nor any new hardware~
