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.

Just now i formatted my laptop and installed windowsXP. For that i need all kinds of drivers to installed and i dont know were to find this.My laptop model is A135-S4527


I bought a Toshiba A135-S4527 with Windows Vista Premium installed on it. I quickly decided to downgrade to XP Pro. It took me days of searching to locate all the drivers since Toshiba does not provide XP drivers for this laptop. Installing all the updates from the Windows Update site did a lot of the drivers for me. HOWEVER, Windows Update will misdiagnose the display adapter. It will try to install a driver for the Intel 945GM but it must be some generic 945GM driver, because it will not give you full functionality (e.g., multiple display outputs, etc). Use the method I describe below to get the correct 945GM driver for this display adapter.

=====================================================
Hardware and drivers needed to run Win XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527
==============================================================
Run "infinst_autol.exe". This is an Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility (now called Intel Chipset Device Software I think). It will identify and load the proper driver files (.inf) for various things. I did this at the end last time, but if done near the beginning, it might take care of things like display adapter, etc. Check Intel's site for the most updated one. Go to http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/inf/

Display adapter is Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset Family
Driver was named win2k_xp14182.exe. I downloaded it initially from
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/deta...1&dwnldid=9683
&agr=n&lang=eng&prdmap=2301

Mouse is Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad
Driver file was called XP_2K.8.3.4.zip. Can be downloaded from the Synaptics website.

Wireless adapter is Atheros AR5006EG
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Ethernet adapter is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Driver can be gotten from Windows Update (or maybe the Win Vista CD too)

Modem is Toshiba Software modem
Driver can be gotten from Win Vista CD.

During XP installation, drivers were automatically loaded for:
- multimedia card reader
- firewire port (IEEE 1394)
- DVD/CD drive
I have this for Mobile Intel 945GM Express drivers:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Prod...ProductID=2301

Using Atheros AR5xxx 5.3.0.35 for wireless drivers:
http://www.opendrivers.com/downloado...php?href=47456

Realtek High Definition Audio 5.10.0.5436
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOU...ver-R170.shtml

SmartCard 2.0.0.6
Haven't looked

Intel Chipset 8.3.0.1013
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...13499&lang=eng

Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet NIC
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/54582

I used a program called "driver genius" and it located the driver versions needed for this laptop.
