Check the hotkey for "select all" usually the controll or alt key , it may be stuck. you can gently pry up any key on the keyboard thats stuck with a butter knife. also might try shaking the keyboard upside down to clear anything lodged under the keys.

Toshiba touchpad not working


Make sure you don't have the touchpad locked. On most computers right above the touchpad in the center is a little button that locks or unlocks the touchpad. Try toggling it. If that is not your problem see if your touch pad application program somehow has locked it. Normally at the bottom right near the time you will have the touch pad application running. Just scroll your mouse pointer over each icon near the time and it will tell you what the application is. If you find the touchpad app open it and reset everything to Default. Another way to find your touchpad app is to click Start/Control Panel then look for the Mouse Application. Open it, that's the touchpad. Set everything back to default. If the problem still is not resolved I would click Start/Control Panel/ System and look for device manager. Under device manger look for the mouse and other pointing devices. If it has a + beside it, click the + to expand it to see what is under it. Right Click on the items under it and click properties. Properties will allow you to see if the device is working properly and you can also update the driver just in case it is missing or corrupt. If all the above fails, then your touchpad probably needs to be replaced. Sometimes it could be something as simple as the touchpad cable has come aloose. Try your local repair shop and get a quote, then try these guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com They will repair it and ship it back to you by Fedex or UPS. Their prices are probably better than any quote you find including the shipping.
