I just tapped & tapped on the pad until it worked, when I discovered what released it it was the arrow (one to the right & one to the left ) on the very upper right hand corner of the touch pad. Now when it turns blue & freezes touching that section unlocks it. I have no idea why this happens.

The kepboard on my toshiba laptop does not work. I tried unlocking it and pressing the fn key and f9 at the same time but that does't work either. Do I need to get a new keyboard?


fn+f9 is mouse unlock on a toshiba if you know how to remove your keyboard from the laptop to see if it somehow became disconnected if it hasnt then you will have to fully remove it my disconnecting the keyboard from the motherboard and get some cleaning supplies or prefer running alcohol and some q-tips and carefully clean the connection on the board if it has golden pins when you remove the keyboard (keyboard connector on keyboard) then you will have to use a skinny flat object and a papertowel carefully

How can i unlock my netbook mouse pad? hp mini 210-1000


The keys for unlocking the mouse or touchpad is pressing Fn and F9.
If it does not work, try to reboot and press Fn and F9 again. If it still fails, I suggest to re install the mouse pad driver.

Hope this helps!

Jumping letters on acer laptop when I type


You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.

You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.

My laptop computer is okey except that the touch command for the cursor is not responding, if i use a mouse thru the usb port then its alright..why does the touch command for the cursor not responding?


Touch pads are not very reliable. I have seen a lot fail.
A computer repair person will need to replace it for you.
My advice is to stick with a USB mouse. Or if it is under warranty, take advantage of that warranty.
Best of luck.

My mouse has stopped working on my acer laptop


Hi,
Do you mean the touchpad or a USB mouse? if its a usb mouse try another usb port, is it wireless? if its wireless check the battery.
if its the touchpad it may be turned off, to turn it on hold down the blue FN button and look at the F1 to F12 keys, one of them has a touchpad icon and it will disable and enable the touch pad, don't worry if your not sure try them all if you wish. You will probably learn something new while your doing it :-)

My hp pavilion dv6000 laptop does not turn on, the blue buttons light up, but the screen stays off


Try it without the rechargable battery connected sometimes the battery shorts and causes problems.
Do you have FN[function] keys at the left side. touch FN key with something else and see if screen comes back.Sometimes you can turn off the screen to send it to the back connected monitor.Connect (extra if you have) an external monitor to the back (vga) connector.If that shows, then you have to ""flutzz" with the FN(function) & F1-F12 keys

Syn pad has stopped working. Easynote SB88-P007


Try holding "Fn" (function) and then tap "F9" (key on the top row).

That disables/enables most Toshiba trackpads.

Failing that, go to http://support.toshiba.com/ then into support, choose your laptop, etc etc, and download the trackpad utility (if it's not already installed)

I think Toshiba use Synaptics trackpads... so look for that in your start-programs first. You can disable and enable it through there, but it's more likely someone accidentally Fn+F9 'd it in the first place! =-]
