You need to reinstall the Synaptics driver from Toshiba. If you do not have the Toshiba driver CD for your laptop you can try the generic ones from : http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
The touch pad may also be disabled in the system bios, (ie the options before you boot through to windows) Re enable it there if you are sure it is not a driver problem.
If still no joy, your local Toshiba agent can advise free on rectification, but you have to take the notebook in to them.
Hope this helps.

Sony vaio all in one touchscreen stopped working


XP and Vista Normal Mode Start your computer as you normally would. Click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. Go to "C:\ Program Files\Sony\Setting Utility Series." Find and choose the "VCCPointingDevice" folder in the "Setting Utilities Series folder" to open the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Locate the "Enable" box on the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Check the box to enable the Vaio touchpad if you wish to use this device. Disable the touchpad if it is interfering with the external mouse. Uncheck the "Enable" box if you have a USB (PS/2) mouse connecting to your Vaio and wish to use that instead of the built-in touchpad. Pick "Yes, I'm Sure" when prompted to activate your choice, then close all the windows. Windows 7 Normal Mode Launch Windows as usual. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Mouse" > "Pointing Device" to open the Vaio touchpad control center. Uncheck the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you wish to use your external mouse. Check the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you want to use the Sony Vaio touchpad. Make sure the external mouse is not interfering with the touchpad if you have one connected. If so, unplug the mouse from your computer. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the "Pointing Device" window. Close all other windows. XP and Vista Safe Mode Restart your computer. Press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Add/Remove Programs." Find and delete all software for mice and pointing devices. Restart your computer in normal Windows mode. Proceed to next step if the problem persists. Restart your computer in Safe Mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Choose "Properties" on the drop-down list. Pick the "Device Manager" tab in the Properties window. Select the "Other Devices" folder and click on the "+" sign besides it. Delete all the devices under this "+" sign by clicking on the "Remove" button next to each of the items. Restart Windows in Normal Mode. Once Windows is operating, there will be a "New Hardware Wizard" pop-up that will load all the necessary drivers for the touchpad, mouse and other pointing devices. This should fix the corrupt driver for your Vaio touchpad. Windows 7 Safe Mode Reboot your computer and press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Device Manager" > "Mice and other pointing devices." Click the touchpad icon. Choose the "Driver" tab and press the "Uninstall" button. Press the "OK" button to confirm. Restart Windows in Normal Mode. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Device Manager" > "Mice and other pointing devices." Choose the "Driver" tab and press the "Update" button. Press the "OK" button to fix the touchpad software.

Double click on mouse not workin


Does single click work? if so, the problem is the amount of time between the first click and second click, if the delay is too long, the computer will only register it as 2 single clicks.

Double click settings are change in control panel > mouse

I have toshiba notebook A200.I have been using a USB mouse,and I now can not get the touch pad to operate.Plerase advise me what I can do.I have tried FL F9 to no avail.


If you unplug the mouse and then start up the machine does the touchpad not work at that point?

Some systems have a settings in BIOS that prevent the touchpad from working if a mouse if connected.

Try unplugging, start up and if the touchpad doesn't work, shut down and go into the system settings and turn on the touchpad (if turned off).

Also, make sure the device manager doesn't show any Yellow Exclamation points, meaning a bad or missing driver. To get to Device Mananger, go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager (in Windows XP that is).
