Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook
I cannot get the touchpad to work on my Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 laptop. I reinstalled the drivers, power cycled, - nothing. Computer says "the device is working properly" but that is not so. Also tried Fn -F9 - no good. Shortcut keys are working, just not for touchpad.
Restore the defaults in the BIOS to begin with, this will make sure its not a setting in there that is disabling the mousepad.
Then in windows see if the touchpad is working. If not then take the keyboard out with the power turned off.
When you take the keyboard out you will see the ribbon cable that comes from underneath the touchpad. disconnect it from the motherboard and reseat it firmly back in. Then turn back on the motherboard and see if the mousepad works. If it still doesn't then try the shortcut key to enable it.
If it does't enable then that means its either going to be a mousepad problem where you would have to replace the top cover assembly or a motherboard problem cause it could be where the voltage required to run that mousepad is missing.
