Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook
I have this problem every now and then. For a quick fix, I goto the toolbar next to the time where it has the Synaptis Pointing Device Icon, a box, with two boxs under it (like the mouse on the laptop) left click it -> Pointing Device Properties -> Device Settings Tab, highlight the device and click DISABLE, it'll ask if you are sure you want t disable it -> OK. Then simply, click it again, and ENABLE. This like, "resets" the mouse, mine works everytime.

Click the Windows "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your desktop.
Scroll up and click "Control Panel."
Choose the "Mouse" icon or type "Mouse" in the field in the upper-right corner.
Click the "Enter" button and then click the "Mouse" link.
Press the "Hardware" tab or the tab to the right of it that specifies the type of touch pad you have.
If you are under the "Hardware" tab, highlight the touch pad in the list of devices and click the "Enable" button.
If you are under the touch pad tab, click the enable button.
Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button
Locate the function key on your keyboard (F1 through F12) that has an icon of a touchpad. This is often a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it, representing the touchpad and its two buttons.
Press and hold the "Fn" key, usually found in the lower left area of your keyboard.
Press the touchpad function key and then release both keys. If this does not enable your touchpad, try holding the "Fn" key down and pressing the touchpad function key twice in a row.
Shortcut Key Method
Press the Windows icon key on your keyboard and hold it down until the Start menu pops up. If your keyboard doesn't have a Windows icon, press "Ctrl-Esc" at the same time.
Use your arrow keys to locate the Control Panel and press "Enter."
Navigate to "Mouse" with your arrow keys and press "Enter" to open the mouse control dialog box.
Then, press "Alt-F" together to access the tabs at the top of this box.
Navigate using the arrow keys to "Device Settings" or "Touchpad" or the similar option on your system and press "Enter."
Press the "Tab" key until the "Enable" option or a check box next to it highlights and then press "Enter." Press "Tab" again until you are highlighting "OK," and press "Enter." Your touchpad will be re-enabled.
hope this helps
