I guess the fix on this one depends on your knowledge of taking apart computers. The problem sounds like there is something loose (either not plugged in all the way, or loose wire). The other option is a crack in a circuit board. If you feel that you know that you have enough computer hardware knowlege to have a look inside, I would check out this site. I use it frequently.

On this page are 2 tutorials about your model that will help you take it apart.

If you don't feel up to it, take it to a repair shop. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, post another comment.

Toshiba Laptop Scroll problems


Hello,

Scrolling is not obvious because there is no area actually marked on the touchpad that shows where it is. Also if you tap the area before doing it, it won't work. Even for me it is hit and miss, since I don't practice with it enough. You could adjust the area that it uses and make it bigger, but then that gets in the way of regular mouse usage.

I would suggest that you try it at a store, and have a sales person show you how to use it.

As for the curser jumping even with that checkmark, well it can. All that checkmark does is turn off the touchpad for a brief moment while oyu are typing. Pause for a second and the touchpad is active again, then slightly bump the touchpad and your mouse will jump. Prove this to yourself by turning off the touchpad entirely with Fn+F9.

In the touchpad settings you can adjust various things to suit you. For example increase the slider for the diable while typing chekmark oyu mentioned, decrease sensitivity, turn off tapping support, etc. Each have thier pros and cons, and that is why they are adjustable.

Also, since you repaired it, I assume they tested it to make sure it was working. And if the touchpad is working, then the jumping adn the scrolling have nothing to do with a hardware problem, it is all software. You can replace hardware till the cows come home and it won't change things. So look at the software settings for scrolling and for "jumping".
This signature left intentionally blank.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Toshiba M35 S320 touch control buttons have stopped working. How do I fix it?


The TouchPad is enabled by default. To change the enable/ disable TouchPad setting: 1 Click Start, Control Panel. The Control Panel window appears. 2 Click Printers and Other Hardware. 3 Click the Mouse icon. 4 Click the TouchPAD ON/OFF tab. The TouchPAD ON/OFF tab view window appears. 5 Select Disable or Enable, whichever is appropriate. 6 Click Apply. 7 Click OK. The Mouse Properties window closes. 8 Close the Printers and Other Hardware window. 9 Close the Control Panel window.
However, still if it does not work, you need to download drivers for touchpad.Here is link to download the drivers for touchpad. Under the "All categories link choose Touchpad"

Acer Aspire 5100-3357 lost function of keyboard, touchpad and USB


hello, this has been one of the most reported problem with the 5100 model. i have 2 of them, and they have done the same thing! one i had 2 find and install a new mainboard-400 bucks! not very cost friendly. i did post a solution more than a year ago, but it is a work around that let me use the acer with the dead keyboard,touchpad,usb- you must buy a pcmcia usb card, it goes in the slot on the left side of the acer 5100. then a usb mouse and keyboard will work. (you can get this cardbus adapter cheap, as 400 bucks is 2 much. these pcmcia cardbus card come with 2 or 4 ports. this will let you use the pc, it has been a great solution for me and a lot of others, been in use over a year like this. acer is no help, unless you wish 2 spend a large amount of $. the one with the new board lasted about 8 months before the usb port stopped working for the second time, i then got a second cardbus usb card and have usb again. sorry for your problem.. good luck! do as i say and the acer will work again.( a problem model) just search for pcmcia usb cardbus you will find many 2 choose from- i picked the ones with the NEC chipset, as these are reliable! be well!

How do you unlock the mouse touch pad?


1. The touchpad and external mouse drivers should be able to work together. Just make sure that you have the touchpad enabled. To see if you have the touchpad enabled, hold the Fn key and press F9. The combination Fn-F9 locks and unlocks the touchpad. If pressing Fn-F9 once, twice, thrice does not seem to lock/unlock your touchpad.. then you might not have the Toshiba hotkeys working or enabled. So lets forget it and try step 2. If Fn-F9 solved your problem.. there you go !

Arrow The way it works is you have to keep holding Fn key and have to hit F9 once, that should lock the touchpad. Again if you keep holding Fn and hit F9 again, that should unlock it and so on..

2. Sometimes this solves the problem.. Do a power cycle of your computer.. i.e., unplug the AC.. take the battery out.. Plug the AC back in and try to turn computer ON with AC alone (i.e, leave the battery out and just start computer with AC power).. Once windows loads up and everything is fine, then turn system off. Unplug AC.. put battery back in.. Plug AC back in and restart computer.. All should be working now.. if not, keep reading..

3. Click on START>go to RUN>type devmgmt.msc

4. Now in the Device Manager, click on the + sign next to Mice and other pointing devices. Right click on each device listed under "Mice and other pointing devices" and Uninstall ALL the MOUSE Devices you see listed there..

attention Make sure you ONLY uninstall the Mouse devices and not ALL devices from Device Manager like your CD, Display etc.. Just uninstall the devices listed under Mice and Other pointing devices after you have clicked on the + sign to the left of it..

5. Go to http://support.toshiba.com there click on Downloads.. select your computer.. Product=Portable, Family=Satellite, Model=M35X-S149.. then click on "GO" button on the right.. Again in the next page that comes up click on "Downloads"..

6. In the page that came up saying Downloads ( All operating systems, All categories ), at the top drop the list Filter by Operating System and select Windows XP (I am assuming you have XP.. if you have another OS, select that instead).. then on the right of it, drop the list Filter by Category and select Touchpad.. then click on the button "Apply Filters"..

7. Now you just see two drivers listed..

09-30-2004 Toshiba Utility
Touchpad Toshiba Touchpad Enable/Disable Utility for Windows XP (v1.27.0.3; 09-24-2004; 5.34M)

06-15-2004 Driver
Touchpad Alps Touchpad Driver for Windows XP/2000 (v6.0.303.5; 05-26-2004; 2.43M)

Click on the Download link on the right.. Save them to your computer somewhere in a folder or desktop, where you can remember.. After the files are downloaded, double-click on the file.. Unzip.. then Run.. and it will install the driver..

8. Restart your computer.. Now the Touchpad should be working fine.. Try Fn-F9 combination.. i.e, keep holding Fn key and tap F9 once, twice to see if it locks/unlocks the touchpad..

If above doesnt solve it, then please post any errors that you get and I will see if we need to try something else.

Thanks for using fixya...

I need a replacement power adapter for my toshiba satellite ps171u-11993h. I live in the atlanta, ga area. Need to know a price range for this and location or phone number to get one. Thank you. Also on my...


The jumping around is you having your wrists too close to the touchpad, the touchpad is picking up signals from your wrists and moving the cursor to another area while you are typing. You can turn up the sensitivity on the touchpad properties to take care of the problem. The power adapter can be purchased on Ebay for approx. 30-40- dollars. Try to stay away from the very cheap ones...like 12-18 bucks, they are usually shipped out of Hong Kong, are cheap and get very hot. The other ones are in the USA, can handle the punishment and have warranties that actually are good. Just make sure you keep all your reciepts and paperwork.

Samsung q210 keyboard not working


There is a small ribbon cable that will pop out real easy when you open it up. There are actually 2, one for the keyboard and one for the touchpad. This can be a little difficult to put back in the slot and close the laptop back up without it popping out again as the cable is not very long. If you have a lot of patience, you should be able to get it. Just take your time and remember to close the lock on the connector where the ribbon cable slides in.
