How do I stop the Toshiba Satellite A200 touchpad locking?

When my hand moves to the right on the scroll area, the touchpad locks and I can't get it functioning again. I can't coordinate the FN and F9 buttons to unblock.

Unlock toshiba laptop

Some toshiba laptops have trouble with the touchpad locking up. I have tried using a wireless mouse and it has helped whenever the touchpad locks up. to unlock (I'm assuming you mean log in) you can click space instead of using the mouse.

The touchpad on my laptop is not working well when


You could try pressing the FN+F9 keys together and see if this helps

one of my toshiba laptops is Fn+F9 also there is a Scroll Lock and a NumLock which can be enabled/disabled while using the corresponding key with the Fn key

On some laptops there is a picture of what looks like a small hand this key is normally the touchpad key

hope this helps you

do you have your user manual it may be found in your programes or you can download one from the toshiba offical website and you will need adobe reader installed to be able to read it

My touchpad on my gateway nv73 is locked. How do

This happened to me and I used a mouse - couldn't figure it out. Was using the 'users guide - link from the desktop and clicked on the troubleshooting guide. It mentioned a touchpad lock was included on 'some models'
So I scanned my keyboard and found nothing. I noticed that there was a picture lit up at the top of the keyboard - above the buttons. It's a rectangle with a hand pointing a finger over it. It's right where it shows you when your hard drive is accessed, cap's are on, etc.
It doesn't seem like a button but when you touch this picture it toggles the keyboard on and off.
This is the second time I had this problem - thank goodness I finally figured it out. Gateway should tell you where the buttons are cause they don't look like buttons - only like indicators

    Yes you can check and see if it is disabled. Just click on Start>Control Panel, the depending on what operating system you are using it will be under Mouse or Pointing Device. Click on that to open and it will tell you if it is disabled. If it is not disabled then send me a comment and we'll try something else.

    Touchpad scroll not working

    Check to see that the program is still installed that manages that feature:

    "C:\Program Files\Apoint2K\Appoint.exe"

    If it still exists, you need to run that EXE to get scrolling back. To make sure this happens automatically at start-up, add a shortcut to the "StartUp" menu of Programs\All Users, or run msconfig and ensure it is enabled in the Startup section.

    If it does not exist, you need to reinstall dual-pointing device (or whatever touchpad you have) from the Toshiba website, for your specific PC.
