I have a toshiba laptop. I accidentally disabled the synaptics pointer/cursor. Now it won't move.


Well, you have two options on this one. If it's just disabled and there's no keyboard shortcut to re-enable it, you can either:

1) Use the Windows key, the Tab key and the arrow keys to navigate through the menus to re-enable it. You would need to go to Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager and go through to find the right one to re-enable. This is possible, but would be pretty difficult and time consuming to do if you're not used to keyboard shortcuts.

2) Buy or borrow a wireless (or wired) USB mouse that you can plug in long enough to go into the Control Panel and re-enable the touchpad using the same steps as above.

In the Device Manager, look for anything with a yellow exclamation point or a red 'X'. Those will be either problem devices or disabled ones. It should be under 'Mice and other Pointing Devices' or something similar.

Hope this is helpful!

Touchpad not working


First check: Control Panel -> Mouse -> TouchPad On/Off

Second check for a button near the mouse pad, often there are buttons that will enable/disable the touchpad

Thrid use the shortcut key FN+F9(or what ever F key that is used by your laptop) to disable/enable the TouchPad.

Fourth try this software: http://www.kingzm.com/eng/files/download/MouseManager.zip

Fith
- Select Start, Settings, Control panel.
- Open System, click on Hardware, and Device Manager.
- Expand "Mice and other pointing devices", and double click on the entry below, that may be called "HID-Compliant mouse", or "Alps Pointing Device".
- Under "Device usage", choose "Do not use this device in the current hardware profile (disable)", and click OK.

How to disable touchpad


To enable/disable touch pad go to "Device Manager" (right click on My Computer icon on the Desktop). Pick "Mice and other pointing devices", right click on your touch pad, select instal/uninstal. May need to reboot the computer if requested.
However - if you do not have any other pointing device (USB mouse) you will only have keyboard for your disposal.
