If your computer have a, Synaptics Touchpad you can try these steps:

1. Access the properties of the Synaptics Pointing Device by right-clicking on the system tray icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. If you do not see the icon, open your Control Panel and select the "Performance and Maintenance" option. Click "System", then "Hardware", then "Device Manager" to view the devices on your computer. Open the "Mice and Other Pointing Devices" selection.

2. Click on the "Device Settings" tab of the "Mouse Properties" window. The "Device Settings" tab is at the top of the window and located farthest to the right

3. Highlight the Synaptics Touchpad from the list of available pointing devices. Click the "Disable" button underneath the list. Click "OK" on the pop-up menu to confirm your selection. Click "OK" on the Mouse Properties window to close the window. Your Synaptics Touchpad will now be disabled.

Make sure to connect a USB mouse to your laptop before disabling the touchpad so that you will still have control of your pointer.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

The touchpad is so sensitive I can't control it


You've got it, your touching the touch pad, annoying isn't it.

You can try a couple of things,

1) Go to Start - Control panel - Mouse/Touch panel - and see if you can reduce the sensitivity or,

2) Disable your touch pad (Same route) and use an ordinary mouse instead. That's what the wife does.

Touch Pad on my laptop is not working


Follow the guide below to tear the laptop down, you are extremely fortunate that the device is even working. Electronic sircuits and water have never been a good match, and your keyboard and touchpad are essentially just large electronic circuits. There is probably some water still somewhere under the keyboard and it is probably in contact with the tochpad cable or socket. When you have the keyboard off, use a hair dryer on warm and completely dry out all components and make sure all the small flat cables are tight in their sockets.

Mouse wont move the cusur


Connect another mouse to the computer and see if that is able to move the cursor. This will tell you if it's the mouse or trackpad that is having trouble, or if it's the computer/software having the trouble.

    Toshiba touch pad not working to tap of finger


    First got to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Mouse(or there may be a separate Touch Pad setup) and check were options for touchpad Settings Options are tabbed or listed.

    All touchpads allow on/off settings for Tap or NoTap. Also, check Sensitivity Settings. If very low, then Tap would have to be very hard to be recognized.

    Next, reboot your computer.

    Touch pad will not work


    Hold down the FN button and up on the top of the keyboard there will be a button with a picture of a mouse. As your holding down your FN button hit the other button and see if it enables your mouse. Something should come up on the screen showing you that its enabling or disabling the mouse.

    When typing on toshiba the curser skip and actually moves


    It might be that your palm is brushing across the intel touch pad (mouse pad) as you're typing?.. try holding down the function key (Fn) (on the lower left corner of the keyboard) while pressing F9 (this activates the "Toshiba Flash Cards Menu" and is a keyboard shortcut to toggle off/on the touch/mouse pad. You can turn it back on this way too. I almost always use a conventional USB mouse with my laptop for this reason and because it's faster than fiddling around with the pad, IMHO).
