My friend has a Toshiba laptop, I'm not sure the exact one, and she says her mouse pad won't work. We've tried the Fn and F1 keys, restarting and several other things but it's still locked/dysfunctional. What can we do?

I've just bought a new Acer Aspire 5742Z and the smart pad has suddenly stopped working. Any idea whether it's likely to be a hardware or software issue and how to fix it? I've tried...


Hi jennylewry...


To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.

The mouse pad is not working. Is there a way to turn it back on?


There's a keyboard combination to turn the touchpad on and off. It's usually the Fn key plus one of the F1-F12 keys. On mine it's Fn+F7 but that doesnt have to be the case with your laptop. Look over the F1-F12 keys and look for a rectangle logo. Dont mistake it for the toggle LCD-External Monitor key). Just try them out and see which one it is. If you mistakenly turn off your LCD just repeat the keystroke combination to turn it back on. This should be a straightforward try-fail thing. I once reinstalled everything on my old Toshiba because I mistakenly turned off the touchpad without even knowing I did so. :)

I have an Acer Aspire 5517. Just the other day, my touchpad and keyboard stopped working. What do I do?


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 touch pad, which is to control the touch pad 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 touch pad, 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 -> touch pad or mouse configurations. Also, check Device Manager if the touch pad driver is installed and working properly.

Thanks.Have a great day.

Mouse pad doesn't work


On the laptops keyboard you should find that one of the F Keys (ie F3) will have a picture that looks like to touchpad on it. If you press and hold the blue FN key in the lower left of the keyboard and then the F Key that might restart it working again. Good Luck

Please press Fn+F9 key to ensure the mouse pad isn't disabled. The key should have these symbols on it.

Mouse pad stopped working after kids pressed


I'm assuming you are talking about the touchpad - they may have hit one of your hotkeys - fn+f7 will toggle the touchpad on and off - on my aspire 3050 anyway - try fn+f1 to get a list of the hotkeys and what they do to make sure
