Toshiba A105-touchpad mouse intermintent problem

When I tap on my mouse 'touch' pad (weither I'm minimizing/maximizing a screen, clicking on "Enter", or clicking in a 'field') the (current) screen will "go" smaller/larger...but the cursor won't display in the field I'm clicking in. This may occur several times in a row...or may occur only once... Initially my computer was hit by a virus (I think) so I 'dumped' everything and did a total 'restore'. All other issues that I had, prior to the restore (slowness, mouse and screen freezes, etc) are non existant...the mouse (touchpad is the only issue that remains). Is there a "fix" out there for this...?? This problem is very annoying!! Thanks, Bob

If you know where the touchpad/mouse driver is located on a recovery disk, I would 'delete' the mouse via the control Panel, reboot and see if Win will reinstall the driver from the restore partition or, ask for a disk as a source and you have to know where that driver is on the optical disk. I would locate the drivers on your recovery disks before you delete the current device.
Alternately, you might check Toshiba's support section for a touchpad driver for your OS and system and burn it onto a removable disk or thumb drive that you give to Win as a destination if asked.

Touch pad set up


Click Start/Control Panel and look for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sure you don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on the button that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents the touchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

How do I disable touch pad when using a mouse? ASUS K50IJ Win7 64 bit


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

Unfortunately, there are no keyboard shortcuts to enable/disable Touchpad movement or tapping. You can however drag the Mouse icon from the control panel to your Quick launch bar for quick access.

If that sounds too much effort, you may consider adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. This can be accessed from the Touch Pad tab of our mouse properties. Choose a low setting.

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.

Touchpad minimizes screen


Double check your settings for the touch pad. It could be set to do that under one of the settings. Or something internally could have gotten jogged or internally moved. If that is the case there isn't much you could do unless you got someone to look inside of it for you.

That's a sign that the synaptic touch pad needs to be replaced. Eventually they wear out.
