A Synaptics Touchpad or TrackPoint. A PS2 plug with cable from mouse or keyboard or a RS plug. Some wire. Superglue. Solder. Optional: PS2/USB. However I went to the web site of synaptics and downloaded the "Windows 10 PS/2 & SMBus Devices v*" file and put it manually. After a restart it works.

Alps Synaptics PS/2 TouchPad No luck. I tried this with the computer powered up in Windows, and Windows never identified that I had disconnected the touchpad, although of course it didn't function with the ribbon cable disconnected. It worked again when I reconnected it, but again, no "reaction" from Windows to either action.
Is the port itself not the mouse or pointing device under "System Devices" somewhere? Or is it under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" Alps Synaptics PS/2 TouchPad Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I identify this port in the device manager?

I've tried uninstalling the driver but after the "suggested" reboot, the Alps Synaptics PS/2 TouchPad is re-installed before she's past the welcome screen. I've seen mention of a System tray app which achieves this but unfortunately, We've just had to rebuild her laptop from scratch so it's a stock XP Home install - So no tray icon for the mouse.
Instead of trying to brute-force kill the device -- check if you can install the driver package for the touchpad. It's likely you have either a Synaptics or Alps touchpad.
Alps Synaptics PS/2 TouchPad In either case, the software has an option to disable the touchpad upon connecting an external mouse haven't looked for an option that disables it for good though. Please provide the product number of your PC. I will try to find the best drivers.
