Question about Toshiba Satellite 2435-S255 Notebook
The F5 key on my Toshiba Satellite P55t-A5118 is pre-programmed to disable and enable the touchpad mouse. I need the F5 key for Powerpoint to display projector view but it won't work because it is pre-programmed from the factory.

Check in the device manager and see if the touchpad is listed under pointing devices.If it is not there try add hardware and see if it detects the hardware. If it is there check to see if it says device is working properly. Sometimes touchpads require software to operate properly so check and see if software was uninstalled. You can also download the drivers/software from Toshiba, try removing the touchpad in the device manager and then re-booting the computer. When windows re-boots it should start installing new hardware found. Use the driver/software you downloaded from Toshiba. If none of these work your touchpad may be bad.

SOURCE: mouse pad cursor doesn't work
try using the FN key with the monitor/VGA output selection changer(usually F5). You will see a little icon that looks like two monitors. Mouse control may have been changed to the external monitor connection. See if pressing FN(function) and holding that key and then pressing the monitor key will bring back your mouse indicator. You may need to do it with the projector connected and on.

SOURCE: F5 KEY not working
Try going to control panel-install/remove hardware. Find your keyboard in the list, right click, go to properties, click on driver, then update driver. If that does not work, please inquire back for more assistance.
