In the device manager, check to see if the drivers for the synaptic pointing device (touch pad) are installed. If they aren't then you will need to go to Toshiba's support site and download them. If they are, then unistall them and reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. Many times when an external is used, especially for a long period os time, the drivers for the external will override or glitch the drivers for the internal. Reinstalling them should do the trick.

Restore the defaults in the BIOS to begin with, this will make sure its not a setting in there that is disabling the mousepad.
Then in windows see if the touchpad is working. If not then take the keyboard out with the power turned off.
When you take the keyboard out you will see the ribbon cable that comes from underneath the touchpad. disconnect it from the motherboard and reseat it firmly back in. Then turn back on the motherboard and see if the mousepad works. If it still doesn't then try the shortcut key to enable it.
If it does't enable then that means its either going to be a mousepad problem where you would have to replace the top cover assembly or a motherboard problem cause it could be where the voltage required to run that mousepad is missing.
