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.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite Touchpad not working

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.

How to fix frozen Asus mouse?


Press and hold down the "Fn" key on the laptop keyboard; on most laptops, it is located between the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys.

Press the "F9" key once, then release the "Fn" key.

This shortcut disables or enables the touchpad if you ever want to add a wireless or USB mouse

Mouse touch pad not working


'F9' keys has a mouse, no mouse looking symbol. sometimes you use the 'Fn' key in conjunction with 'F9' key, sometimes not. Give it a try by itself and use it. If not hold the Fn key and hit F9 and try again.

My mouse pad and two click bars do not work? a wireless mouse does work though. why isnt it reading my finger across the pad when i want to use it instead of the wireless mouse?


You may have it disabled. Press and hold the "fn" key then and press the key that has a symbol for the touchpad on it. For my satellite it is the F9 key. Then give it a shot. It should work.

Touch pad does not work


Hi,
  1. Look for Fn function key - Most laptops have this special key Fn that is next to the Ctrl key on the keyboard. It should have a blue or green color, easy to find.
  2. Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the touchpad, which is to control the touchpad of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, wireless etc.
  3. Now hold down the Fn key and the F10 key to enable the touchpad, in this example, the Toshiba laptops. You press them again to disable it
  4. If none of the above works, plug in an USB mouse, then check into the Control Panel -> touchpad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touchpad driver is installed and working
Good Luck!

Touchpad is not working - TOSHIBA Satellite A135-2386


Hey there... :D

Could you try the Fn+F9 Key to Disable/Enable your touchpad mouse?

Because just now i've experiencing the same problem as you guys... and turns out I can make my touchpad working just by pressing the Fn+F9 key.

Note: if your Fn key is not working try installing Toshiba utilities for A135 called FlashCard, run the program and there will be a dropdown menu at the upperside of your screen...
then click on F9 >> and choose Enable.... Thats It... :)

I hope it also solved your problem... :D
