    touchpad not working, cursor/carat frozen in the middle of the screen

  • rfrg Jan 02, 2008

    I have a IBM Thinkpad T43. I usually use it as a desk top with attached external mouse but when in mobile mode I use the touchpad which I like. A few weeks ago I had a probem with the screen back lighting and had it fixed by IBM here in Japan. When I got it back I used the external mouse.

    Then in mobile mode I discovered that neither the touch pad or the related click buttons were working. I don't know when this happened but wonder if the problems are related.

    I checked the control panel items and the touch pad control panels are not live - as if the touch pad feature didn't exist at all - how do I recover them?

    My finger pad freezes occasionally. I shut down, restart and it recovers. What can I do to keep the finger pad mouse from freezing?

    thanks, Dale

My maylong mobility netbook mouse pad is off


Hold the "Fn" key down and look at the F-keys at the top of the keyboard. One of them should look like a mouse or a hand with a pointing finger. Fn + one of the "F" keys should turn the touchpad back on.

Hope this helps!

Would like explanation of function key symbols I want to turn off the finger pad.

function key is Fn key on keyboard.
these keys might be in orange color
with the help of these keys you can control sound volume. you can adjust screen resolution like brightness .you can also turn off/on wireless features.These keys are like shorcuts keys to perform few functions on your laptop.

To turn off your the finger pad

You can use the Mouse Properties window to disable the touch pad and track stick or adjust their settings.
Open the Control Panel, and then click Mouse. For information about the Control Panel, see Windows Help and Support Center <findinfo.htm>.

In the Mouse Properties window:
Click the Device Select tab to disable the touch pad and track stick.
Click the Touch Pad tab to adjust touch pad and track stick settings.

Click OK to save the settings and close the window.

Re toshiba techra 8000

Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

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

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

Touch pad not working not sure if correct driver is instslled or a mechanical issue.

I'm assuming this is a laptop and not a desktop, since I've never seen a touch pad on a desktop....but unless you've had some work done to it in the past...i.e. new keyboard/hdd/memory where it could have been disconnected from the logic board, your touch pad has gone bad, and will need to be replaced...or you can pick up a much cheaper mouse and use with the unit.
