Hi i have had my toshiba equiim laptop for 11 months now and it was working fine. It has now stopped working, moving or anything. It stays in the middle of the screen and does not movee even on the startup user page.
My touch pad and buttons stopped working all of a suddent. I have already been to the Device Manager in the Systems folder and everything is in order. I have also been into Program Files and there is a dll that cannot be changed, and there is PadExe file that does nothing. Thanks!
In a TOSHIBA LAPTOP- When the Synaptics Touchpad stops working in Windows Vista. You should download the 'Toshiba Value Added Package' and then launch 'Flash Cards' utility. There is a setting to enable the Function Keys, and thus enable the Touchpad! Voila.

I went to the Toshiba site and downloaded the newest version available for Vista: http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_driver_details.jsp?service=EU&selCategory=2&selFamily=4&selSeries=243&selProduct=821&selShortMod=null&language=13&selOS=all&selType=all&yearupload=&monthupload=&dayupload=&useDate=null&mode=allMachines&search=&action=search&macId=&country=all&selectedLanguage=13&type=all&page=1&ID=65296&OSID=26&driverLanguage=42
Check to see the make of your touchpad (in most cases it would be a synaptics one.) If so, go to http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers and download the corresponding driver according to your operating system.
I'm assuming you already went through the basic steps such as checking if there's a dedicated touchpad button which might be turned off, checking if from control panel\mouse the device is not disabled, etc.
go at the manufacture's website and download the Synaptics Touchpad Driver at http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/
select your aspire model and select the driver your need which is the synaptics touchpad driver
Run it and reboot your laptop
this should work just fine
Hi there. The touchpad drivers could be corrupt, try reinstalling the touchpad drivers again. Go here to Toshiba Support fill in the details of your model laptop and download the synaptics touchpad driver and reinstall it, see if that helps.
I had this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1318, so I went on to their support centre and through the Chat to a technical advisor tool, they uninstalled and reinstalled the driver which controls the touchpad and now the problem is completely gone. I suggest you contact Acer or the customer service of the company that you bought your laptop from and ask them to do something similar. I didn't even need to send my laptop back, Dell were able to take control of my laptop remotely and it only took about an hour in total. Hopefully your provider will be able to offer a similar service.
You may even be able to do this yourself if you can figure out which touchpad driver you need and look on the Acer/laptop maker website support and look at updates for drivers or downloads or something similar. Personally I found using the company's expertise much easier.
I resently had the same problem on my HP laptop and search Google for possible solutions. No solution works until I tried Windovs Update and then got 5 alternatives - Synaptics PS/2 port TouchPad was one of them. I update and restart and finally solve this problem.
