Try pressing the function key (fn), then TOUCHPAD.

Then, try re-installing your touchpad driver. On the toshiba's site's support/download.

Hope this helps! ^_^

Toshiba Laptop left click stopped wokring?


1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.

  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    Hello, my cursor (touchpad) is non responsive. Thanks


    I would check to see if it is turned off. On a Toshiba, you can press the Fn key and one of the special function keys to turn the touchpad on or off. There is an icon on the special function key to identify it.

    Have you checked the settings of your synaptics? Usually there's an Icon on the taskbar for synaptics you can right click it and check if "disable touchpad if usb pointing device is present" is checked, if so uncheck it then your touch pad should work again.
    Here's a link for a step by step instruction though this is for windows xp but steps are the same. Hope this works for you:

    Volume Icon has disappeared.


    First, right click on the taskbar and select Properties from the right click menu.

    Alternatively, you can go to the Control Panel and type the word 'taskbar' in the search box from the upper-right side. Once the search results are loaded, click on the link that says 'Customize icons on the taskbar'.

    The Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window will show up on your screen. Here, go to the tab called Notification Area. In the System icons section check the Volume box and click on OK.

    The Volume Mixer icon will now show up in the notification area of your taskbar

    I hope that this information was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

    The touchpad mouse on my toshiba salellite does not function even though it shows it working properly when you go into the touchpad icon. I have an external wireless mouse (usb) hooked up that works fine...


    The touchpad is most probably defective. If you have dropped your laptop the touchpad cable could have get out from its connector on the mainboard. You can get a new touchpad/palmrest on ebay. You have to remove your touchpad/palmrest as shown in the link below, steps 17 to 19 :

    http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/remove-motherboard-1.htm

    Identify the part number of your touchpad/palmrest. Search on ebay.com : Toshiba Satelitte A105 palmrest. Buy the one with the same part numer as yours.

    ...or have your laptop repaired by a professional.

    Touchpad not funjctioning on Toshiba Satellite L40/45 laptop


    You might have inadvertedly disabled the touchpad.

    1. Press Fn + F9 to enable the touchpad.
    This key combination acts as a switch, enabling or disabling the touchpad: press once to enable (if it is disabled), then press again to disable.

    2. If the touchpad still doesn't respond, check the settings in the mouse control utility.
    Click on the touchpad icon on the right side of the task bar if you see one or click Start button/Settings/Control Panel, select the Mouse icon and Press Enter.
    Change the settings if necessary.

    How do I set touchpad settings to inop touchpad when USB wireless mouse is plugged in


    Some laptops have a Fn Key sequence to disable the touch pad. Look for the touch pad icon on your function keys (hand touching finger on a square). You can also go to the toucpad app by double clicking on the touch pad icon in the system tray and got to device properties to disable tapping - assuming issue is TPad interfering with typing

    Synaptics touchpad not working


    Have you looked at the Device Manager to see if there's a problem with the touchpad?

    Start -> Control Panel -> System -> click on Hardware tab -> click on Device Manager button. Do you see anything that indicates a problem with the touchpad?

    Also, you might want to check the BIOS to see that the touchpad is still enabled. I doubt that this setting would have changed, but it's worth checking. When you boot the computer you should see a message that says something like: "To enter setup press XXX" where XXX is the delete key or some other key. Once you're in the BIOS poke around to see if you can find the settings for the Touchpad. Different manufacturers use different BIOS' so I cannot tell you exactly where to look.

    Good luck.
