Hi There,

Since you don't mention the Operating System, here are the steps for XP. They're similar in Vista and W7 if you nose around a bit.

Go to Control Panel>Mouse> (now you should be in the "Mouse Properties" window with 2 rows of tabs) > Click the Devices tab and you should see options to enable or disable the Touchpad or the Touchpad Buttons. Under Touchpad click the little circle next to Disable and then below right click on the "Apply" button.

That's it. Enable the pad again whenever you choose in the same window.

Have a good day.

Touch pad sony viao vpceb3j1e not working


Hey there. Often times this is a problem caused by accidentally turning it off. Look for a button on your keyboard or near the touch pad to turn the touch pad on/off. If you're using windows 7 and possible below, you won't need drivers to get the touch pad to work normally.

THE TOUCHPAD MOUSE JUST QUITE WORKING DOES IT NEED REPLACE AND IS IT SEPARATE FRON THE KEYBOARD


It is hard to tell if the touch-pad needs replacing from the information you gave. However, I can tell you that the touch-pad is NOT part of the keyboard.

There are several things the can cause the touch-pad not to work. 1) It may have been turned off in the BIOS. 2) It may have been turned off by the operating system software or 3) You may have installed a usb mouse which in some cases will override the touch-pad. 4) The touch-pad may have a bad connection into the motherboard or into the touch-pad circuits.

I wouldn't go replacing the pad until I had tried all the other possible areas because this requires a complete screw removal from the bottom, removing the display and keyboard. Then removal of the upper case of the laptop. I do this as a last resort.

My toshiba satellite A355D touch pad is not working. my husband told me that probably my kid turned it off. if that is the case... how can i turn it on?


Sounds like your touch pad may need to be replaced.You can't really turn off the touch pad.Even if your child managed to uninstall the touch pad it would load back the drivers at next startup.Chances are the touch pad will have to be replaced.Its possible the touch pad may be disconnected from the motherboard but not very likely though.

If it is not a normal mouse then From the Control Panel->Add Remove programs remove the mouse drivers. and reboot the laptop. Else go to Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device manager. Remove the mouse that is installed there. DO NOT REMOVE THE TOUCH PAD. And compute happily ever after.

Touch pad


If you have the drivers for the touchpad installed then you should be able to run your finger up or down the right hand side of the touch pad and have it scroll the page you are one.

If it doesn't work then you may need to either reinstall the drivers or find the program that handles the touch pad settings (usually found in program files) and turn the scrolling feature back on.

Hope that helps :)

Touchpad


When the touch pad stops working it's one of three things. 1- A driver glitch, unistall the touch pad drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers automatically. 2- The touch pad connector has worked loose. Take the palm rest with the touch pad off, disconnect the cable, clean the connectors, and reseat the cable firmly. 3- the touch pad has failed and will need to be replaced. The driver glitch is the most common, I believe that it should take care of the problem. Let me know.
