Not difficult..with right tools and patience..the touchpad is part of the upper assembly, and requires that the bottom be removed. When I do this, it takes around an hour.

got backup?

The mouse of my laptop is not moving


Use an external mouse and RESTORE the PC to an earlier set date. Also reinstall the drivers and use the recovery disk if there is an OS issue.
If this wont solve there can be fault in the motherboard or a damage on the pad. Clean the pad, check the rear side connections, dry if there is moisture or a spill .

I spilled I tea on my Gateway FX keyboard and mousepad. The keys are working now but I'm worried they will get sticky. I cleaned up as much as possible by patting with a towel to soak up the tea. ...


Before you do anything, unless it is already dried, (turn it off first!) turn the laptop upside down and gently tap the back to coax any liquid out. Then do NOT turn it on until it is totally dried. You can clean the keys and pad it with a DAMP (NOT wet) cloth with plain soap and water. Be careful not to get any water down into the keyboard itself so it doesn't short it out. However this will not clean whatever liquid may have gone inside. Hopefully none did else you could end up with a bigger problem...

My keyboard does not work but mouse does


Have you recently had any accidental spills on the keyboard? If not, how old is it... it could just have deteriorated contacts due to age, or possibly a manufactuer defect?

If its within a year old, contact Toshiba and send it in... it should be covered under warranty, as long as it wasn't a consumer accident... such as dropping it or spills.

My keyboard will not work


Hi,

Keyboard Is Dirty:

Keyboards should be cleaned with "spray-n-wipe" cleaner and a cloth or tissue on a monthly basis. Ensure that computer is not powered up while cleaning the keyboard. Compressed air can also be used to clean between the keyboard keys. Another tip: clean the keys with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol.

"Keyboard Not Found" Message:

Your keyboard is not plugged into the computer securely. Unplug it and plug it back in and the problem should go away. If this doesn't work, follow procedure: "Computer isn't taking inputs from keyboard" (below).

Key Is Stuck:

1. If a key does not work or is stuck in the down position, you may try to remove it with a CPU "chip puller" tool. These simple "L" shaped tools are great at pulling out keys. Once you've pulled out the stuck key, you can try to stretch the spring to "reanimate" its action.

Computer Isn't Taking Inputs From Keyboard

1. Is keyboard connected to computer? Ensure that the keyboard is plugged into the keyboard jack and not into the mouse jack. If the keyboard was unplugged, plug it back in and reboot the computer.

2. If the keyboard still doesn't work on boot-up, power down the computer and try to borrow a friend's known-good keyboard for troubleshooting. Plug the new keyboard up and boot up the computer. If the new keyboard works, the old keyboard is bad and needs to be replaced.

3. If the known-good keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure it sees the keyboard. It should say, "installed." If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard, then you probably have a bad keyboard port.

I Plugged Keyboard Into Mouse Port

1. Many mice and keyboards today use a PS/2 connector
. If you plugged your keyboard into the mouse port (or viceversa), follow steps 2 and 3.

2. Shut down the computer and plug the keyboard into the keyboard port. The keyboard port is usually marked with a "keyboard" symbol. Plug the mouse into the mouse port (usually marked with a mouse symbol).

3. Reboot the computer; the keyboard should work now. If keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure the BIOS recognizes the keyboard. You should see the words, "installed" or "enabled" under the keyboard.

4. If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard but it still doesn't work, you may have a bad keyboard port.

I Spilled a drink on my keyboard!

1. If you spill any liquid in the keyboard, turn it upside down ASAP. Drain all the water out of the keyboard, shaking it if necessary. If you've spilled water into the keyboard, just let it dry. You may use a hair dryer to dry out area under the keys (remember, too much heat and you could damage the electrical components).

2. If you've spilled a soda into the keyboard, completely rinse it in warm water. No soap please! You may use a hair dryer at this point or just let it dry for 2 days. Ensure the keyboard is perfectly DRY before you attempt to use it again. Don't plug a wet keyboard into electrical equipment. Think safety.

5. If the keyboard still doesn't work, replace the keyboard.

Hi my name is amyraffan and my dell inspiron 1545 touch pad/ mouse has stopped working completely it wont move and its froze in the same posiition, please help!


Hi,
there is a button to disable the touchpad near to it. check if you had accidentally clicked on that button which disables your mousepad.

If still problem not solved, then try reinstalling the touchpad device driver alone from the driver cd provided along with your laptop.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks

The keyboard and mousepad is not working


Without looking at it, I would have to say that the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard/mouse to the motherboard has been disconnected, you will need to research that. May be simple. Has there been any water spilled on it?

I've noted that certain mousepads do cause problems- it seems to be with the graphics on the pad- reflective/light/dark areas on the pad cause the different movement patterns. I'd guess a pad with a dull non-reflective & uniform color might be best.
