Tips to keep in your mind

Make sure you have another pointing device available before disabling the touchpad.
If you find touchpad software installed on your laptop, you might be able to adjust the settings and eliminate the touchpad's annoying behavior without disabling it. For example, some touchpad software allows you to change the sensitivity of the touchpad, ignore palm presses, and automatically disable the touchpad when the system detects an external mouse.
