SOURCE: synaptics pointing device ceased to function

Load up device manager , highlight your computer (top in the list) and right click - select scan for new hardware - See if it detects your pointing device now

If it does , right click it , update driver etc and reinstall the drivers for it

If not , it might be a hardware problem , try getting it repaired by toshiba if its still under warranty

SOURCE: touchpad is not working and does not show up in

You need to reinstall the Synaptics driver from Toshiba. If you do not have the Toshiba driver CD for your laptop you can try the generic ones from : http://www.synaptics.com/support/drivers
The touch pad may also be disabled in the system bios, (ie the options before you boot through to windows) Re enable it there if you are sure it is not a driver problem.
If still no joy, your local Toshiba agent can advise free on rectification, but you have to take the notebook in to them.
Hope this helps.

Error: Unable to connect to the synaptics pointing device driver


What you need to do is go to device manager by clicking on start and control panel and find the device manager. You can also type devmgmr.msc and hit enter. Then you can see the pointer devices. You can then delete them and the right one will come back when you restart the computer you can then go back to the device manager and disable it there.

Touchpad not working


There's a tiny orange light near the upper left corner of the touchpad to the left of the touchpad. If that is lit, you may only have to tap the upper left hand corner of the touchpad a couple of times to get it to go out. and start the touchpad working.

Barring that, see if the synaptics driver is installed. Go to "Control Panel," change the "view" in the upper right hand corner to "large icons," and see if "Synaptics Touchpad V8.1" is listed.

If not, go to "Control Panel," locate device manager and click (with a usb mouse) "mice and other pointing devices," click "Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad," and check to see if it says, "device is working properly." If not or if it still doesn't work, click the driver tab, and click "update driver."

Ha a Toshiba Satellite a100 I can not turn off the touch pad (as I only want to use the mouse). Both touch pad and mouse are working. the laptop had to be reformatted recently and its since then All...


If your computer have a, Synaptics Touchpad you can try these steps:

1. Access the properties of the Synaptics Pointing Device by right-clicking on the system tray icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. If you do not see the icon, open your Control Panel and select the "Performance and Maintenance" option. Click "System", then "Hardware", then "Device Manager" to view the devices on your computer. Open the "Mice and Other Pointing Devices" selection.

2. Click on the "Device Settings" tab of the "Mouse Properties" window. The "Device Settings" tab is at the top of the window and located farthest to the right

3. Highlight the Synaptics Touchpad from the list of available pointing devices. Click the "Disable" button underneath the list. Click "OK" on the pop-up menu to confirm your selection. Click "OK" on the Mouse Properties window to close the window. Your Synaptics Touchpad will now be disabled.

Make sure to connect a USB mouse to your laptop before disabling the touchpad so that you will still have control of your pointer.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

HP Pavilion Entertainment PC - scrollbar on mouse pad not working


I think I can help you. I need to know what kind of mouse driver you are using. To find out click on the control panel, click on mouse properties, click on device settings. Under devices it should show Enabled/Name/Port. Under Enabled it should say Yes. Under Name should give the name of the device being used and under Port it may or may not show anything. Ex. Yes /Synaptic TouchPad V7.2 / Port/2. If this is what yours shows, double click on the highlighted device and a menu will come up. From there you can reactivate your scrollbar. If yours does not show a device in the list, sometimes it will show where to go to download the device in the bottom righthand corner. EX:(www.synaptics.com) If not, you will have to find the name of your device. Hope this helps. Tim
