    I have it figured out. I had to re-download the device driver from the program website itself.

I would re install the touch pad driver. Go to Toshiba.com, select your country and find your laptop. Select support and download drivers. Whilst there download the latest drivers for everything.

It sounds like he didn't reload the Alps driver you need. Follow this link, choose your operating system from the dropdown. When the list comes up, scroll until you find touchpad driver. Download and install it.

SOURCE: touchpad is not working and does not show up in

You need to reinstall the Synaptics driver from Toshiba. If you do not have the Toshiba driver CD for your laptop you can try the generic ones from : http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
The touch pad may also be disabled in the system bios, (ie the options before you boot through to windows) Re enable it there if you are sure it is not a driver problem.
If still no joy, your local Toshiba agent can advise free on rectification, but you have to take the notebook in to them.
Hope this helps.

Nearly every modern laptop computer comes with a touchpad for on-screen interaction. Depending on your operating system and touchpad driver versions, you can update the speed, sensitivity, tap speed and clicking functions of your computer's touch pad.

Accessing these settings and updating them to meet your needs is a quick and easy process with both the Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X operating systems.

Open the Control Panel by clicking the Windows Start button and selecting "Control Panel." Depending on your Windows configuration, this option may be located within the Start Menu's "Settings" sub-folder.


Double-click the Control Panel's "Mouse" icon.

Click the Touchpad tab.
This tab can have one of several names, depending on your computer manufacturer, your operating system version and your device drivers.

Enable a Mouse for a Laptop

Without the ability to drag and drop and point and click, a laptop computer is merely a desk ornament.

Most laptops are manufactured with a built-in mouse in the form of a touchpad.

If the touchpad fails or if you just prefer working with a mouse, it is easy to enable a mouse for use with your laptop.

Purchase a mouse that is compatible with your laptop.
You can find compatibility information on the manufacturer's website.

If the mouse is wireless, make sure that the USB receiver is included, or purchase it separately. The mouse will not function without the receiver.

Insert the batteries in the mouse if you are installing a wireless mouse.
The battery compartment is generally located on the bottom of the mouse.

Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the computer.
If you are using a wireless mouse, connect the USB wireless receiver to the USB port.

Turn the computer off and then on again if you are enabling a standard mouse with a wire.
This will instruct the computer to run the "new hardware" wizard, which will walk you through the installation of the mouse, and your mouse will be enabled.

Turn the wireless mouse over, and locate a small indentation with a button.
You may need to use the tip of a pencil or pen to depress this button.

Simultaneously press the button on the mouse and the small button on the USB receiver.
This will initiate communication between the mouse and the receiver.

Hold the buttons down for about 5 to 10 seconds until the light on the mouse comes on.
Test the connection by moving the mouse.

If the cursor moves, you have successfully enabled the mouse.
If not, check that you have the batteries installed.

Try pressing the buttons independently of one another.
Press the button on the receiver until the light blinks and release it.

Press the button on the bottom of the mouse until the light on the mouse is lit.
This should enable your wireless mouse.

Unlock scroll key


Toshiba laptop computers use multi-function touchpads, which often have software features added to the touchpad manufacturer's basic package. If your Toshiba laptop's touchpad won't scroll but its other functions are working, you may simply need to adjust your settings. If the problem occurs suddenly, try restarting your computer before resorting to other methods. Sometimes the addition of new software or other features can interfere temporarily with the touchpad driver, interrupting the scrolling feature. If a simple restart does not restore your touchpad's scrolling feature, check its properties through the control panel. The exact options for doing so will vary by laptop model and operating system.

Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Navigate to "Mouse," which may be under "Hardware and sound" or a similar category, depending on your operating system. Select the "Touchpad" tab in the "Mouse" window. This tab will also list the touchpad manufacturer, most often Synaptics on Toshiba computers. If you have more than one built-in pointing device, as is the case with the touchscreen model Toshiba Portege series, choose the "Hardware" tab and select your touchpad, then click "Settings." Select "Properties," "Settings," "Advanced" or the similar option on your system. Click the box next to "Enable scrolling" if this option is available. For Synaptics touchpads, you may have a list of options; click the arrow to the right of "Scrolling" to open the scrolling list and select one-finger or two-finger scrolling to access the specific features. Click to enable any scrolling features you desire, then select "Adjust scrolling region" or the similar option, if available. Drag the scrolling region to cover a larger portion of the touchpad if you want to ensure you can scroll easily. Click "Ok" to apply any changes and close the options windows. Keep clicking "Ok" until all of the windows with this option are closed. Restart your computer if prompted. Your scrolling feature should be enabled.

The touch mouse will scroll and move but won't click.


you might have to reset it
Most modern laptops with touchpads offer vertical scrolling, horizontal scrolling or both. These features are located along the right-hand and bottom edges of the touchpad, respectively, and are activated when you swipe your finger along the touchpad edge. Scrolling functionality is nearly always enabled by default, but some users find the feature an annoyance and elect to turn it off. In most cases you can simply turn the feature back on using the Windows Control Panel.

Click the Windows Start button, select "Settings," and then click "Control Panel." Double-click the icon labeled "Mouse." Select the Touchpad properties tab. The labeling of this tab varies, depending on your computer manufacturer, operating system version and the device drivers installed on your machine. Common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see this option, you may not be able to turn on scrolling for your laptop; skip the remaining steps and refer to the "Warnings" section below. Click the "Settings" button within the Touchpad Properties menu and look for the section labeled "Scrolling Settings" or similar. Enable scrolling within this section and define other scroll settings, such as scroll zone width and scrolling speed. Click "OK" to confirm your changes, and then close the Control Panel windows opened in the previous steps. The scrollbar on your laptop is now enabled.

Hi sheki_68,

If you have disabled the Scrolling Feature of the Touchpad, you will need to re-enable for the function to work correctly. You can enable the Touchpad Setting from the Control Panel, Mouse Options.
  1. Click the Start button and then click Control Panel .
  2. In the Control Panel window, click Hardware and Sound .
  3. In the Hardware and Sound window, click Mouse .
  4. In the Mouse Properties window, click the Function tab.
  5. To enable the Scroll function, click to check the box next to Use Scroll Function.
  6. Click the OK button and then close the Hardware and Sound window.
This should re-enable the Scrolling Feature of the Touchpad. If the Function is not available in the Mouse Properties window, you may need to re-install the Touchpad Driver in the Computer to fix it.

Good Luck!

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you require further assistance.

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.
