Question about Toshiba Satellite A305-S6857 Laptop

Open Question

Toshiba Satellite A305-S6857 Laptop with Windows Home Premium Vista SP 2. Approx 3 weeks ago my laptop crashed. I was able to save most with no issues. However, ever since, my Touchpad is "possessed". If the pointer icon passes over anything for more than a mili-second it opens it- or closes it until it is moved off. Which means the simply clicking of IE usually opens 8 windows. And if one windo is closed by the "X" then ever window lined up with it closes as well. I have turned off Tapping and scrolling in the settings and that has made no difference. HELP!!!

I would go to this link and select your device and download the driver/software for your device. Try to reinstall the driver/software.

Note:
Fn-F9 is a hot key combination that will enable/disable the touchpad.

Hi! You may access touchpad settings by accessing control panel then go to hardware and devices then click on mouse. It will show a tab that has a drop down option for left and right click functions. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com!

I can't print label to cd dvd from my dvd unit


Before you can use a lightscribe facility, you must have 3 things, which are, A DVD Drive thats has a lightscribe capability/function, a lightscribe software, and a lightscribe compatible CDDisk.
From what I can see, your drive is not capable, or does not support lightscribe functionality. I tried to check everything about your system model and I discovered that the capability of your DVD Drive is this :
  • Writable DVD formats: DVD-R (6x, DL [double layer]), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (DL [double layer]), DVD-RAM
  • CD formats: CD-R (24x), CD-RW (16x)
Which means your DVD Drive does not support Lightscribe facilities.
You can also check everything about your system from this link :

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!
