Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 Notebook
Here are the details.. the PC once had a broken screen and i replaced the screen with a spare toshiba laptop i had sitting around. FYI i had opened up the whole PC searching for options to get A LAPTOP running. i.e (i tried switching power outlets off the motherboards) looking for solutions. ANYWAYS, once i swapped screens i was able put together a operating laptop but my touchpad does not work..
so far i have tried installing updates and downloading touchpad drivers and i still havent been able to get it working... ANY SUGGESTIONS!?
OK, if you opened that chassis during troubleshooting, then the issue is most likely either the touchpad cable was disconnected in the troubleshooting process and not reconnected, or worse, the cable damaged during disassembly/reassembly and the inputs are not being received from the touchpad. So re-checking the cable connecitons from the palmrest to the motherboard are in order. (I've done it)
Also, check and ensure if there is an option in the BIOS to disable the touchpad, make sure it is enabled.
