Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
The arrow has been frozen for days. I turned it off, then turned it back on. I tried taking the battery out for a couple of hours then putting it back in. It's still frozen in the middle of the page and I can't do anything with it. All my work is on the laptop and I can't even move the mouse to access it. F9 doesn't work either.
Your cpu overheated. Please try to use new thermal grease between the cpu & heatsink?

Many laptops have a button, usually located right above the touchpad, that disables the touchpad.
And there may be drivers that need to be loaded for some touchpads to operate properly, in case you've reinstalled the OS.

That does make it more difficult! Okay, for future reference, when you have key control again and the mouse or touch pad stops working, if you have a standard 101 key keyboard, or even a laptop with one key instead of two on certain keys, you can do it this way:
1. Hit the Windows key, which will open your start menu.
2. Pressing the Windows key and Pause/break will take you to your system properties.
3. Minimizing and restoring screens hit Windows key and "D".
4. To get to Utility Manager, hit Windows key and "U". This will, among other things, allow you to choose to use only the keyboard or the mouse, so you can disconnect the mouse, among many other things.
5. Pressing Windows key and "F1" will take you to Help & Support.
6. Windows key plus "E" takes you to Windows Explorer".
7. Pressing "Cntrl, Alt, Delete" takes you to the task manager.
These keys should provide help in getting around in your system without a mouse.
To get to control panel, for example, press the Windows key to op[en the Start menu, and use the "up arrow" button to go to control panel.
Now that everything appears frozen, power your machine down. Remove the battery from the rear for a few minutes, even if you are operating on A/C plug in. Put the battery back in and power up. Did this make any difference?
You can always buy an inexpensive laptop mouse which works on USB. When you plug in the USB the mouse works independently of everything else. Then you could click the start up memory, help, and choose restore to an earlier time before this problem happened.
That usually will clear any problem.
Please let me know what happens.

SOURCE: frozen mouse icon
press fn key along with f9 to enable and disable the mouse pad. some laptops use diffrent keys so it isn't always F9. usualy there is a mouse pad icon on the key.
