The cursor on my Toshiba satalight pro laptop has completely disappeared, its brand new and was updated last night, this has been going on since this update


Some symptoms that occur with Toshiba laptop mice include jumping and vanishing pointers.
These situations have occurred after software upgrades have been made.
The problems can often be solved by following basic mouse troubleshooting methods.

Overall, Toshiba laptop mice contain the basic functions characteristic of the USB variety.
Function

The mouse device is used to move, open, delete and otherwise connect with items available on and through the computer monitor.
In Toshiba laptops and many others, the mouse pad replaces the point and click USB mouse device. This enables the mobile computer laptop to be more compact, portable and ready to use.

Features
The mouse pad on a Toshiba laptop is located in the middle, directly below the keyboard.
The control buttons, both primary and secondary are situated below it.
The primary key, on the left, represents the left-click button on an USB mouse device.
The secondary key on the right represents the right-click button on an USB mouse.
This button is used to pull up the short menu of an item after selecting it.


Update Keyboard Driver Many Toshiba mouse issues can be solved by updating the driver.
The driver enables the mouse to function properly. Update the keyboard driver first to increase mouse and keyboard device compatibility.
To complete this task, click "Administrative Tools," accessible from the Start menu.
Next, click "Computer Management," and then select "Device Manager."
Click the "Keyboards" expansion node to bring up the list of installed hardware, and then right-click on the keyboard that is in use.
If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it.
Otherwise, select "Properties," go the "Driver" tab and press "Update Driver."
Device Manager is a useful tool to update, rollback or uninstall incompatible drivers.

Update the Mouse Driver

Update the mouse driver by following most of the instructions in the above section, "Update Keyboard Driver."
However, after selecting "Device Manager," click the expansion node next to "Mice and other pointing devices."
Select the current mouse device in use and right-click on it.
If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties" and go to the Driver tab and press "Update Driver."

Check BIOS Fixes

Some older Toshiba laptop models require BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) fixes.
Most of the downloads are available from their website.
Since, the BIOS chip is the liaison between the hardware and software, any issues should be addressed promptly.
Symptoms, such as erratic mouse behavior or the pointer disappearing, are signs of a need for a BIOS fix or driver update.

Compatibility

Toshiba and most Microsoft Windows products are compatible.
This is vital when it comes to updating necessary drivers needed for continual operating system function. The service packs they approve of are listed on their website.

Laptop keyboard mouse not working


Toshiba has released a few different advisories related to its Satellite line of laptop computers having keyboard problems. Remember that damage caused by liquid or physical damage is not usually covered by warranty.

Bios Fixes
On Satellite models 1955-S801, 1955-S802, 1955-S803 and 1955-S804, the BIOS (system utility setup program) had trouble reading the firmware for the wireless keyboard. BIOS version 1.40 repaired this problem. The BIOS flash program can be downloaded from the Toshiba website. http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSupportSite/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=286356xml&sliceId=&dialogID=124900040&stateId=0%200%2084585964 b> Satellite 1955 Text Anomaly b> Toshiba reported a strange, software-specific problem between the Satellite 1955-S801 and S803 computers and Microsoft Word and Excel. Users who held down the shift key for more than five seconds while using the arrow keys would see their highlighted text disappear. The only provided solution was to use an external keyboard attached with a PS/2 connection or to release the shift key if pausing while highlighting in those programs. General Troubleshooting for Satellite Keyboards b> For general concerns about the keyboard -- if it doesn't appear to be working -- try these few steps. Use the keyboard before Windows loads: hit F1 on the first screen that appears after turning the system on. If they keyboard works here, it's probably a Windows problem. Try attaching an external keyboard; if it works, the internal keyboard is likely broken.

New system. Cannot enter bios with F2 key, apparently keyboard is not working, but works well in another computer. I tried bios switches 1_2 default and 2_3. With 1_2 it goes directly to PXE_E61 error,...


hallo there, tried the DEL key? (instead of the F2, some Bios of them use older input for F2, DEL sends same key. )
Also, please count how many short, how many long beeps mopbo gives when booting.
Also: try to connect with PS2 keyboard. Possible no correct keyboard connection or even worse, when its a wireless keyboard need tyo pair keyboard with receiver first.
Also possible: is the keyboard not IBM compatible?
As said: try first to use default PS2 keyboard, theyre cheap and most of the times problem is directly solved.
If that does not solve your problem, count the beep codes and tell us please, could be some other problem, ( wrong memory, memory not placed correct, voltage problems etc etc etc)
the bios codes would help us to help you fasst.

or you might have uninstall the keyboard restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel keyboard hardware then properties you should see driver details,you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,uninstall
make sure you have the driver for the keyboard before uninstalling the driver
make sure the lead is good and has a secure connection diconnect the keyboard then reconnect it then reinstall the driver
as for the mouse
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options also hardware under hardware you can troubleshoot or
select properties under driver you will have the options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot

Keyboard stopped working after a Windows update yesterday at 4:28 PM. External USB keyboard now attached. No BIOS keyboard settings found. Dell Studio Laptop.All keyboard drivers are up to date. Help????


First thing I would do is get the dell diagnostics disc (hold f12 at start up) and run that, while trying to use the keyboard. (move the arrow keys around and see if they work. you might have to unhook the usb keyboard first) if the keyboard works in the diagnostics area, then its not a hardware issue. (kbd failure would mean no keys worked, or, only some worked sometimes.) You would then need to go into windows device manager and try rolling back the keyboard drivers. If you have full kbd functions outside windows, then you have a windows driver issue. try rolling back, or removing the drivers.

Hi,
Go into the Bios utility and enable all the USB controllers, then save the changes, exit the bios. The computer will restart, plug the keyboard into another USB port and let the computer boot up, wait about 5 minutes before trying to use the keyboard because the drivers maybe trying to install themselves.
If you get no luck you will need a standard PS/2 keyboard, connect that and boot your machine, log into your account and install the drivers for the USB keyboard.



Good luck.
