Touch pad on Toshiba L300 series

When I bought my computer yesterday, I could use the touchpad to open and close programs by quickly touching the touchpad twice. Something has happened and now I have to use the control buttons below the touch pad to open and close programs. What do I do to fix this problem?

Hi there,
If you open the control panel, you will then find an Icon called mouse.
If you double click on that, the settings will be shown, you can then adjust according to your taste.
In particular look for the double click speed.
I hope this helps, Chris

    your touchpad might have a 'lock' button nearby it, to enable or disable its sensitivity. this is usually helpful while typing, so you can disable it so that the when the touchpad gets touched, the mouse won't make any reaction. You can then enable it to work with the mouse. This button is usually either near the top border or near one of the four borders. Alternately, some laptops have a function key for touchpad enable-diable thing. It is usually Fn + F3. The function key (Fn) is near the Ctrl key. The touchpad key, in the in colour of the Fn key will be somewhere in the Function keys.

    Touch pad problem

    I also have encountered that problem particularly on my touchpad. When I tried to open the laptop I've notice that the flex cable connecting the touchpad to my motherboard is detached. When I put them back. It was working properly.

    Thanks. Cheers!

    I have some how deactivated my touch pad

    power cucle your computer make sure that you turn off ther computer completely.

    if still the same then you need to uninstall the youchpad driver under uninstall program. look for the Synaptics TouchPad Driver.

    I check the model of your computer under the toshiba wesite and I found out that you have a synatipcs driver.

    Then go to this link to download the driver

    The touchpad still works even without the synaptics driver. Once you uninstall the touchpad driver and still yur having the same issue then it is a posible touchpad issue means the hardware itself.

    Toshiba touch pad not working to tap of finger

    First got to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Mouse(or there may be a separate Touch Pad setup) and check were options for touchpad Settings Options are tabbed or listed.

    All touchpads allow on/off settings for Tap or NoTap. Also, check Sensitivity Settings. If very low, then Tap would have to be very hard to be recognized.

    Next, reboot your computer.

    Frozen mouse with a touch pad laptop computer

    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.
