Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6104 Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba Satellite P105 touchpad and keyboard are not functioning. It almost seems that I have somehow locked or disabled it. I can plug in a USB mouse and get to my desktop to open progams and such but cannot type anything or move the cursor with my touchpad. I have: ckecked to make sure the touchpad is enabled, restarted several times, reset to previous working settings, removed the battery and reinstalled. Any other ideas?

If only some aren;t working, attempt to clean it with compressed air (fter verifying that this is safe for your computer).

If all of the keys aren't working then most likely this is hardware related. Faulty wiring replacement should only be attempted by a professional (unfortunately).

The last thing that comes to mind is that someone spilled a liquid within your keys =P

How to enable touchpad on Toshiba Satellite L850?


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

Touchpad not in device manager


Hi There,
The touchpad will normally show up under input devices in device manager. If you don't see it listed, check to see if your touchpad has a manual on/off switch located on the laptop keyboard (sometimes under specialized function keys)
If a switch doesn't seem to be the issue, try reinstalling the drivers for the touchpad, which should be available on the toshiba website.

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.

Touch pad possessed.


To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

Alternatively, you can permanently disable the touchpad of your laptop by clicking the "Disable Device" in the Touch Pad setting. Advanced users can disable the touchpad from the BIOS setup [press F2 when the computer is booting to enter BIOS settings]

For extra USB ports, purchase a USB hub($15 -$20). That way you can add at least 4 USB ports to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
