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.

    Actually, there *IS* a setting in BIOS for disabling the touchpad. The problem is, once you have disabled it, it appears you can never re-enable it. I have tried re-enabling it in BIOS, have gone so far as to re-set the BIOS to factory defaults, tried a linux LiveCD (to make sure it wasn't a problem with my OS settings) as well as a HDD that has the original Toshiba factory install of WinVista. In *none* of these does the touchpad work anymore. So once it's disabled, that's how it's going to stay forever.

The CMOS battery is on the motherboard and in order to get to it you have to take apart the laptop.

My Satellite A355D-S6889 does not recognize the AC adaptor. It is only 6 monthes old laptop and adaptor. It sits in one spot most of the time so I wouldn't think any dammage would have happened to it....

Try to update the BIOS by checking the manufacturer's website for any BIOS update.

Choose the OS you are using and check if there are any BIOS updates recently.

else try to press F2 as soon as you turn on the laptop and enter into the BIOS set up.
There's an option to restore defaults. Once this is done Save changes and the system boots.

Restart the system and the AC adapter will be detected.

Remove Bezel on Toshiba A355D-S6889

Ok, if you have never replaced a laptop screen before, you might not want to do this one first. It appears that the screws on the face of the screen have to come off first. They are under the rubber footies. After screws are out, tape them to a piece of paper, and label what they were for. Do this for all screws you remove, After screws are out, you will open the screen as far as it will go without forcing it. Using a plastic card, or similar PLASTIC tool, slide into the crack around the perimeter of the screen facia. You will hear "pops" as the snap clips are opened. The lower case of the laptop may also need to be removed. This repair is best left to someone with experience, so be careful to remember what screws go where. This is very important as a long screw in the wrong place will destroy your machine. Check out this page that sells parts for this machine: A355D series (A355D-S6881, A355D-S68811, A355D-S6885, A355D-S6887, A355D-S6889, A355D-S6921, A355D-S6922, A355D-S69221, A355D-S6930, A355D-S69301)

you will need to copy and paste since the website uses spaces, and the models were truncated. Without seeing the actual device in person, it would be difficult to walk you through it. Just remember how you took it apart, tape screws to paper with descriptions on where they went, protect against static, dust, water, and always use plastic tools to avoid scratches.

This may be a simple driver glitch. Try uninstalling the touch pad drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. The touch pad either works or it doesn't, there's no in between, so if this doesn't work, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the touch pad.
