How to fix frozen mouse on Toshiba Lap top


I am not sure if you are using the built in keypad mouse or an external, if you are using an external and you are having issue, you might be having problem with the update driver if you installed SP1 on your computer, the first thing to try is another USB mouse, than can work 10 seconds after plugin it in, and you do not need to reboot.Tony

MY COMPUTER WON'T RECOGNIZE MY EXTERNAL HARD


click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
hope this helps

Built in mouse has not worked properly from day 1. Now my external mouse won't work either. I tried a different external moue, but it doesn't work either.


Unplug everything except the power cord, including the following:

Speakers
Printers
Scanners
USB devices
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
USB flash drive or other external storage devices
External Monitor
External Keyboard
External Mouse
If your computer is attached to a docking station, undock it.



Make sure the touchpad or your finger has no dirt, grease, liquids or food on it (the touchpad has to make a good contact with your finger to work correctly).


Turn the computer back on and retest the touchpad.

When the touchpad still does not work correctly proceed to step 5.

When the touchpad does work correctly, attach one external device at a time and test the touchpad to see which one may have caused the issue.



Make sure the latest driver for the touchpad is installed (you may need to use a external USB or Bluetooth mouse), for more information refer to:

My Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301 USB 1 port, does not recognize my Passport external Hard disk drive. What can I do to solve this problem ? Thank you, very much for your assistance.


Hi

assuming that the external hard disk is usb

i would try this

plug in the external hard drive
then go to device manager
then hover your mouse at the top of the box
and look for a icon that says scan for new hardware
then hit the scan icon
your laptop may or maynot recognize the external hard drive at this stage
now leaving it plugged in restart the laptop
and with any luck windows will now recognize it


good luck
hope you get sorted with it

Toshiba 160 GB Hard drive is not seen by 'new' computer


I have had a similar problems with external drives that only plug into a USB port (no ext power adapter). It is very common that the power supply fed through the USB port is inadequate to power an external hard drive. Some enclosures have a external A/C input to resolve this. Also, some computers (motherboards) only have a select number of USB ports that are powered. Since this device is detected by your other computer and not on the new one, my next attempt would be to locate a USB hub with external A/C power. There is a good chance that this will resolve the problem. By the way, when you plug in the drive does it spin up?

My laptop mouse wont work


do you mean the mouse integrated in the laptop or an external USB mouse?
If it is the integrated mouse, try to get an USB mouse, plug it and wait until your laptop recognize it, assuming you are working in Windows XP right clic on My Computer, clic on Properties --> Hardware --> Device Manager , double clic on Mice and other pointing devices, once here, look for the mouse of your laptop (do not mis identify it with the external mouse that you just plugged) right clic on it and clic on uninstall.
Restart your laptop, once in windows again it will recognize the mouse as a new device and will install the drivers again. 
Good luck!

Toshiba satelite laptop mouse not working

Device Manager is where you want to go to see if something is wrong with it. You know also, I'm not sure if any other Toshiba has this built in it. Like on some HP, they have a button just to the top of the touchpad. If you hit it, it turns off the touchpad. Hit it again, its back on.
I’m pretty it doesn’t. If the button is not there, then it might be just your touchpad is dead or loose cable on the inside.

Let me know

Frozen mouse


well the touchpad can be frozen for many resons, primary reasons could be.

1. the compter is hung in other words it needs to reeboot.
2. the touchpad has spoiled, if your laptop is under warranty please visit the nearest toshiba service center.
3.Yes, an external mouse would work but please check if you have a ps/2 port for regular mouses or otherwise please buy a wireless mouse they arent expensive now a days but very convineint.

Best of luck :-)

Have a nice day !!
