    Hi,

    For me too, touchpad click is not working.

  • vdosch May 15, 2008

    The touchpad on my Toshiba has recently started working only until the computer has finished starting up. It then stops working and only the cursor appears and moves, but the buttons on the touchpad don't. What's more, if I plug in a USB mouse, the buttons on the mouse don't work either. It's very strange. Anyone know what the problem is?

  • ellectrastar Oct 04, 2008

    I am also having the same problem, the mouse moves but the double click on the touch pad doesn't. When it's first turned on it works a couple of times but then stops. When I was on the internet the other day the whole thing froze for a while, then started working again but it's only since then that the touch pad has been playing up. It seems to be enabled okay, and assume it must be to work the first couple of times it's turned on. Any ideas as to why it's stopped and how it can be fixed?

Ok so here goes.... I had the same problem:

Go to the 'start' button and then hit the 'control panel' option, then click 'mouse' then go to 'Device Settings' and then to the 'settings'. When you get to this screen it shows a list on lthe left hand side choose the 'tapping' option and then ok.

Hope it works for you...it did for me.

I had the same problem with tapping on my Toshiba Satellite, once the tap-to-click function came back, than stopped working again. I found solution myself today. Strangely i could only access the full settings for the touch pad through mouse settings, so the mouse had to be connected. I went to Control panel- Devices and Printers- then Right Click on the "Mouse" icon and clisked on Mouse Settings- then went to Device Settings (with Synaptics Red logo), push the "Settings" button, and then you finally get the full list of settings, including "Tapping", and then you just have to tick the circle "Enable tapping" (mine was unticked, that was the cause of my problem). Hope this helps...

Hello:

The first place I would check is under Mouse in your control panel. You can turn on/off the tap tap on your pad there.

If that does not resolve the issue let me know...more tricks up my sleeve.

Best of luck my friend.

Posted on Mar 28, 2010

Here is a little something if you are having trouble with the "tap to click" with the mouse touch pad.

Control Panel...Mouse...Device Settings tab...
in the Device settings tab...make sure there the device is enable...then, there is a settings box. In there..click on it, go to "Tapping"...check the Enable checkbox. That will turn on the "tap to click" function.

    I had same problem, the toshiba touch pad tap click is not working. The cursor moves but not able to click it. Plugged in regular mouse and it worked fine. Followed above instructions about going to control panel, mouse, and checking to to see if tapping was on. After further checking I found that the left button on the touch pad was shut down and would not move. Using a needle along the side of the button I GENTLY pulled upward and it popped loose. Unplugged mouse and Pad is working great LAnderson

It sounds as the 'click' is faulty. it may need replacing. If you have food or anything has found its way under the 'click' it may either be stopping it from returning to its positions OR the 'Click' as you put it is actually faulty.

SOURCE: my toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch

Hi!

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.

I have some how deactivated my touch pad


power cucle your computer make sure that you turn off ther computer completely.

if still the same then you need to uninstall the youchpad driver under uninstall program. look for the Synaptics TouchPad Driver.

I check the model of your computer under the toshiba wesite and I found out that you have a synatipcs driver.

Then go to this link to download the driver
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2175704&rpn=PSLB0U&modelFilter=L300-ST2501&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663

Note:
The touchpad still works even without the synaptics driver. Once you uninstall the touchpad driver and still yur having the same issue then it is a posible touchpad issue means the hardware itself.

When I have seen this happen, the touch pad was set overly sensitive. When you are typing, your palm may be moving the cursor. If this happens at other times, then this can be corrected in the control panel. Go there and click on touch pad. It will have settings to set the sensitivity for the mouse pad, speed, double click/single, etc. You can change the settings to be more suited to your hands.

FYI: Older laptops were more susceptible to touchpad errors and I have even seen the area on either side of the touchpad to cause the mouse cursor to move and jump.

Good Luck

Lapptop touch pad not responsive


there is an option to enable/diable touch pad by clicking combination of fun+f5 or f6 or enable it from setup.

Oct 21, 2008 | PC Laptops

1 Answer

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.
