Touchpad won't work on my Gigabeat F40

All of a sudden the touchpad on my gigabeat won't respond. It's fully charged, the power, menu & volume buttons on the side do work, the hold button is not on.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be or what I can do?

How to enable touchpad on Toshiba Satellite L850?

Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.

Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.

The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.

Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.

Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.

hope this helps

My touch pad scroll function is not working on my Toshiba satellite M300 laptop

To use scroll function, you have to install the touchpad drivers, which are available from Toshiba Official Support. Click Here to download the required touchpad drivers. Select 'Touchpad' from Category and install Synaptics or Alps Drivers (Depending upon the type of touchpad you have on your system).

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

My acer touchpad is nto taping please let me know i have window7 starter

If I understand correctly, the touchpad CAN move the cursor around but you CANNOT click or "tap"?

If this is the case, you'll need to adjust your touchpad settings. Under Start>Control Panel>Mouse you should be able to find the settings to adjust your touchpad.

Alternatively there may be a small icon in your taskbar (down by the clock) for your synaptics touchpad. If you right click this icon a menu appears and you can select "enable tapping"

My touchpad is not working

If all drivers are loaded and you have checked that it is not disabled in hardware then it might be the ribbon cable which connects the touchpad to the motherboard. There is little to fail mechanically within the actual touchpad itself.

Touch pad does not work

  1. Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.
  2. Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touchpad, which is to control the touchpad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.
  3. Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touchpad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it
  4. If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touchpad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touchpad driver is installed and working
Good Luck!

My mouse pad stopped working on my Compaq Presario 2200.

if this is the touchpad, try to reinstall the touchpad driver. You can uninstall it through the device manager while using an external mouse, then download the latest driver from your system manufacturer's web site. After that, make sure the touchpad is enabled and if this does not work, you may need a replacement touchpad, though you may also try system restore or OS reinstall.

Touchpad not workin at all

u can turn on or turn off the touchpad functionality of ur notebook..what must have happened is u would have turned off the touchpad of ur notebook by mistake & now u dont know how to turn it on....The key to turn on the touchpad can be different on different it would have been easier for me to provide u a resolution if u would have also mentioned the model of ur notebook... Generally there is a small button just beside the touchpad which is used to turn or off the tochpad, if the small button is amber in color then the touchpad is turned off & if its blue in color then touchpad is on...otherwise sometimes there is no button beside the touchpad & then there is a key combination to turn on or off the touchpad & it is Fn+F7....
try this out, it might work for u, if it works then let me know by rating this solution...
