Question about Toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 Notebook

1 Answer

Primary and secondary mouse disabled

Please help! My primary and secondary mouse pad/select keys have been disabled. For a while they would work when they wanted to and now they do not work at all. For a while the secondary mouse click would open the options menu everytime I tried to select something with the primary. Now neither of them work and I have to navigate with the tab key and arrow keys. I never had this problem before; it all started soon after my cat ran across the keyboard, I think he must have pressed some combination of keys that caused this. How can I fix it??

I only want to use the left click to click on items and not thave the touch pad click on items


Yes, depending on what mouse you have, most of the time you need to install it, if its not installed, go to the control panel, select the mouse category, This will help install the drivers. Should solve the problem. If mouse driver is installed, control panel, select mouse category, and a mouse properties box will display.. check to make sure the switch primary and secondary buttons option is not checked.

Cq60 frozen mouse pad


Since you don't seem to want to help us in helping you, by being more detailed about your mouse, or mouse pad, problem, I will give you some general advice:

- This is a laptop, yes?
- It has one of those little areas where you can use your finger, instead of a mouse?
- Look in Device Manager, or even in the Mouse option in Control Panel, and see if you have a mouse configured for your laptop, in addition to the built-in finger pad for use as a mouse.
- If you find there are two separate devices, one for the laptop-supplied mouse square, or rectangle, with the buttons on the bottom, for use instead of a mouse, and one for an external mouse, then make sure you have designated the built-in pad for use as a mouse. If, however, you want to use an external mouse, then you do the opposite, and ensure that the external mouse is selected as the device you wish to use for a mouse, and disable the built-in mouse/finger pad software, so that you do not have a conflict.

One or the other must be primary, and the one not primary must be disabled, or your laptop must be told not to use that other one.

Apparently - again, because you gave us absolutely no details - there is a hardware conflict and the laptop doesn't know which device to use, so it is not using either, and you're stuck without the benefit of any pointing device.

All the work you need to do with device manager and control panel must be done with keystrokes, and for that you must use Windows' Help to learn which keys will do what. Usually the four arrow keys, near the numeric pad, along with Page Up and Page Down, and the Tab button, or Shift+Tab, to go backwards, are all you might need to reset things the way they need to be set.

I hope you understand that absent any details at all, the only advice you will get from anyone here, is going to be educated guesswork.

Best of luck to you.

Cheers!
-a.

The touch pad was working and now all of a sudden its not


Check your model for a mouse pad disable key. A lot of times it is right above the mouse pad (and is easily bumped) or a function key. It generally looks like a symbol of two mousepads with the second one having a line drawn through it.

Try pressing this button or holding in the Fn key (lower left hand corner) and pressing the function key and see if that resolves your issue.

If not make sure mouse drivers are installed and working properly.

If none of this helps, please post your model and Windows version.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful.
