Default Disabling the Touchpad on my Laptop?

I have an Acer 2200 laptop and I was wondering is there any way to disable the touchpad because everytime I type something, my hand brushes up against the pad and messes me up. Its quite annoying. Does anyone know if there is a way to disable it?

Problem solved. I had to install my touchpad drivers and then disable it from that.
