Hey guys... I'm sorry if this has been covered before, but I couldn't seem to find anything on it in the forums.
I have a VAIO laptop, PCG-V505EC, and the touchpad has recently gone crazy. It's become super sensitive and will think I'm tapping it when my hand isn't even on it!? I don't mind using the touchpad... I was just hoping you guys knew of some way to disable the tapping feature? I can't seem to find it anywhere on my computer. There's no tapping submenu under mouse properties or the folder properties. I'm also wondering, if I install a bluetooth mouse, will it temporarily disable the touchpad when I use it?

Thanks so much!

Hi Holz...

You might try installing Updated Drivers for the touchpad.

I'm not sure how the blue tooth device will effect the touchpad. I got tired of waithing for the Sony website to load. Gad! What a bulky, slow site they have...
