My 15 month old daughter got a hold to my laptop and pushed some keys :-( I thought that she just cut it off so when I turned it on it boots up and it shows the screen that says SAFE MODE, Start normal, etc...
and tells me to scroll down to pick one. When I attempt to do so, my Enter key nor my touch pad works. It like my keys are stuck! Im wondering did she push a command to "lock" my touchpad/enter key....HELP!! :- #

Re: Toshiba Laptop "Enter" and touch pad not working
This screen should have a 30 second count down, then start Windows normally. If yours doesn't do this, then she may have keyed the automated recovery and interrupter it causing an operating system error or glitch. If this is the case you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If it does start Windows after the count down, then run a system restore. One of these will take care of your problem. Also, there is no locking command for the touch pad or enter key.

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.
Sounds like the video card is loose. It's located underneath your keyboard - remove the plastic strip above it, then the two screws that hold the keyboard down, lift keyboard up and set it upside down on the palmrest. The video card is the square piece of circuit board that's partially covered by your palmrest. Push down on the side that's closest to you - and that should do it.
I think the magic combination is "Fn"+"F7". Or there is a small push switch at the top of the touchpad that turns it off. My daughter has one of these and I solved the same trouble for her, but her compy's not here now for me to check.
