Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

Mouse touchpad malfunction

When I tap on my mouse 'touch' pad will minimize/maximize the display screen, whether I'm 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, audio, 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

SOURCE: Toshiba A105-touchpad mouse intermintent problem

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.

My mouse pad in my computer wont work when i tap it


It will depend on what touch pad (and related software) is installed on the particular computer, but you will find the tap option under the Control Panel. Open your control panel, select "Mouse" There will be a TAB in the mouse properties called "touchpad" (surprise, surprise!) where you can toggle tapping on/off.

Hope this helps. PS: if you DONT see the touchpad option - you will first need to install the drivers/software for your touchpad. Most HP touchpads are the Synaptics Touch Pads - Find the drivers here: --> Click here!

How do you turn off the touch pad


Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.

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.

I have a Dell laptop computer with Windows Vista Basic. The mouse on the screen has become very sensitive and sometimes it clicks on an item when it scrolls across the screen. How can I make it less...


  1. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize > Mouse Pointers . The Mouse Properties settings window will open.
  2. Alternately, click Start and type Mouse in the Search field, and select Mouse when it becomes available in the program list. The Mouse Properties settings window will open.
  3. Select the Device Settings tab. Select the Synaptics TouchPad device and click Settings . In the Properties for Synaptics TouchPad window, expand the Sensitivity topic.
  4. Select the PalmCheck option to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to avoid erratic cursor movement caused by accidental touching of the pad during normal typing.
  5. Select the Touch Sensitivity option to adjust how much finger pressure is required to move the mouse on the screen and how responsive the touchpad is to taps.

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.
