    The touchpad should be disabled if you have a USB Mouse connected. It can be disabled from within touchpad configuration, Fn-F9 from the keyboard, or disabled in the BIOS.

    If you experience erratic cursor movement during normal use (not while typing) with your Mouse disconnected, you may have a hardware problem. You could confirm it by booting into a Linux "LiveCD" distribution and seeing if you could reproduce the problem.

    Another thing you can try is to uninstall your touchpad driver from "Control Panel - Uninstall a program", then reboot to let Windows install its Plug-N-Play touchpad driver, and see if your touchpad issues persist (again with USB Mouse disconnected).

    Sorry to say, but the G73JH was notorious for touchpad problems... I personally had one and removed the cover/film from the underside of the touchpad which helped some, but it was never perfect. I think the issue really comes down to a grounding issue with that touchpad in the G73 model.

    I saw frequent complaints for that model, but I have none of those issues with the G75.
