    It wasn't just the touchpad light on my dv6, it was the little square on the left top side of the touch pad. I agree, the touchpad is very "touchy" but I still love my laptop. It is a great computer and the positives far outweigh the negatives.

I find the pad very very touchy and sometimes not responsive and your palm can and will interfere with your typing. i will say that several times my pad quit working i could not figure this out and had to restart it. then i i googled the problem and came here and found out that you tap where the light is and whalaaa it worked lol. however that still does not help with the lagging responce and location of the touchy pad due to my palm...... wish i knew this before purchasing.

I want to disable my touch pad.


There may be an Fn-Key combination that allows you to toggle between ON and OFF. (maybe Fn-F9). The relevant key should have a picture of a touch pad.

My touch pad on my hp ProBook4520s is shut off and i dont know how to turn it back on


You will probably have to connect a mouse to get there. Go to start -> control panel -> find the mouse/touch pad link (location may vary depending on your operating system). Within there you will find an option to configure your touch pad. If it is showing that it should work, then there is one of two problems. 1. You have a very nasty virus and should run some anti-malware and anti-virus programs. or 2. Your touch pad no longer works and you'll just have to use the mouse until you get a new laptop (the amount of money you'd have to spend to replace the touch pad is nearly the same price as getting a new laptop) If this post was helpful to you, please rate it. Best of luck to you!

Satellite P505 Model S8980 - unable to get TouchPad to work now where it did work before. The TouchPad ON/OFF button nor the Fn+F9 approach are no help. A USB-connected mouse worked fine, tho. Just no...


----- control panel - mouse - see if touch pad disabled there ----- have a look in the bios/setup and see if the touch pad is disabled there, as the PC boots - you should see which key to use to enter the bios/setup F2, F10, DEL KEY are often used ----- On some machines a combination of FN and F key can disable/enable the touch pad - F7 or F9 ----- If you point the mouse to the top of the screen you may get a menu dropdown, which will also tell which key to use to disable/enable the touchpad ----- control panel>system>{vista}lefthand side device manger or {XP}hardware>Device Manager>Mouse and other pointing devices>Touchpad>highlight touchpad and right click, Properties, may be an option here to Disable/enable,

Toshiba satellite a215 disable mouse pad, is this possible.g


I think you meant touch pad. so on every Toshiba notebook Touch Pad can be disabled on two different ways. The first one is using FN+F9 key combination or using DISABLE option in mouse properties.

How do you unlock the mouse touch pad?


1. The touchpad and external mouse drivers should be able to work together. Just make sure that you have the touchpad enabled. To see if you have the touchpad enabled, hold the Fn key and press F9. The combination Fn-F9 locks and unlocks the touchpad. If pressing Fn-F9 once, twice, thrice does not seem to lock/unlock your touchpad.. then you might not have the Toshiba hotkeys working or enabled. So lets forget it and try step 2. If Fn-F9 solved your problem.. there you go !

Arrow The way it works is you have to keep holding Fn key and have to hit F9 once, that should lock the touchpad. Again if you keep holding Fn and hit F9 again, that should unlock it and so on..

2. Sometimes this solves the problem.. Do a power cycle of your computer.. i.e., unplug the AC.. take the battery out.. Plug the AC back in and try to turn computer ON with AC alone (i.e, leave the battery out and just start computer with AC power).. Once windows loads up and everything is fine, then turn system off. Unplug AC.. put battery back in.. Plug AC back in and restart computer.. All should be working now.. if not, keep reading..

3. Click on START>go to RUN>type devmgmt.msc

4. Now in the Device Manager, click on the + sign next to Mice and other pointing devices. Right click on each device listed under "Mice and other pointing devices" and Uninstall ALL the MOUSE Devices you see listed there..

attention Make sure you ONLY uninstall the Mouse devices and not ALL devices from Device Manager like your CD, Display etc.. Just uninstall the devices listed under Mice and Other pointing devices after you have clicked on the + sign to the left of it..

5. Go to http://support.toshiba.com there click on Downloads.. select your computer.. Product=Portable, Family=Satellite, Model=M35X-S149.. then click on "GO" button on the right.. Again in the next page that comes up click on "Downloads"..

6. In the page that came up saying Downloads ( All operating systems, All categories ), at the top drop the list Filter by Operating System and select Windows XP (I am assuming you have XP.. if you have another OS, select that instead).. then on the right of it, drop the list Filter by Category and select Touchpad.. then click on the button "Apply Filters"..

7. Now you just see two drivers listed..

09-30-2004 Toshiba Utility
Touchpad Toshiba Touchpad Enable/Disable Utility for Windows XP (v1.27.0.3; 09-24-2004; 5.34M)

06-15-2004 Driver
Touchpad Alps Touchpad Driver for Windows XP/2000 (v6.0.303.5; 05-26-2004; 2.43M)

Click on the Download link on the right.. Save them to your computer somewhere in a folder or desktop, where you can remember.. After the files are downloaded, double-click on the file.. Unzip.. then Run.. and it will install the driver..

8. Restart your computer.. Now the Touchpad should be working fine.. Try Fn-F9 combination.. i.e, keep holding Fn key and tap F9 once, twice to see if it locks/unlocks the touchpad..

If above doesnt solve it, then please post any errors that you get and I will see if we need to try something else.

Thanks for using fixya...

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


Hi!

I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

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.
