Scroll function on my Toshiba Satellite TouchPad isn't working

The TouchPad has been working fine since I purchased the laptop last February, but I think I unwittingly messed something up with a software update this week. The TouchPad allowed me to scroll by rubbing a finger up or down with the pointer displayed anywhere in the window, but this function isn't working. Now I can only scroll using the window scroll bar. When I open the pointing device tray icon in the taskbar, it offers options for a mouse rather than a TouchPad. Otherwise the pointer still works fine, but I would like to get the scroll function back.

Thanks,
Van

    I have the same issue. Also, when using the touchpad I have trouble with it minimizing and maximizing the screen. If I try to use the touchpad to scroll, it will sometimes open or close a window.

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!

The touchpad mouse on my toshiba salellite does not function even though it shows it working properly when you go into the touchpad icon. I have an external wireless mouse (usb) hooked up that works fine...


The touchpad is most probably defective. If you have dropped your laptop the touchpad cable could have get out from its connector on the mainboard. You can get a new touchpad/palmrest on ebay. You have to remove your touchpad/palmrest as shown in the link below, steps 17 to 19 :

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/remove-motherboard-1.htm

Identify the part number of your touchpad/palmrest. Search on ebay.com : Toshiba Satelitte A105 palmrest. Buy the one with the same part numer as yours.

...or have your laptop repaired by a professional.
