SOURCE: Locked cursor on Toshiba Satellite using Windows Vista

you need to press f8 on boot when it is loading, to enter safe mode (before the Windows flash screen)

 

then when in "Safe mode" you can  should be able to gain access,

 

reboot from this mode and see if it loads normally,  if not then you have a configuration issue.

 

go back into safe mode, (login) and go to start>Run,  run a program called MSconfig,  this will allow you to look at your startup items,  and allow you to disable/enable them individually,

 

from this point you can diagnose which programs are causing your issues.

 

I hope this helps

Just download this :) It will fix your problem. If it doesn't work, just search for Toshiba Value Added Package Vista/XP (that depends on what Operative System you've got) and download for your Operative System.

Search "flash cards" on your computer. Several shortcuts will popup and you shuld see one entitled "restart flash cards". Double-click on this icon and then hold down the fn key to verify if the restart worked.

TOUCH PAD ISN'T WORKING, CURSOR WON'T MOVE


your touchpad might have a 'lock' button nearby it, to enable or disable its sensitivity. this is usually helpful while typing, so you can disable it so that the when the touchpad gets touched, the mouse won't make any reaction. You can then enable it to work with the mouse. This button is usually either near the top border or near one of the four borders. Alternately, some laptops have a function key for touchpad enable-diable thing. It is usually Fn + F3. The function key (Fn) is near the Ctrl key. The touchpad key, in the in colour of the Fn key will be somewhere in the Function keys.
