I have a Satellite A135-S2356 that had the same problem. I tried the solution from PCTServices above and it worked great.
"Power unit off. Disconnect AC power. Remove battery. Remove the memory cover screw, memory cover and the memory modules. Peel back mylar from JOPEN1 solder pad. Short JOPEN1 solder pads for 30 seconds. Replace mylar. Replace memory modules. Replace battery. Power up unit. If all is well, replace memory cover and screw."
Just short the two little solder pads and it worked great! I thought I would have to send it back to the manufacture but I am back in buisness. Thanks for the help.

Toshiba says this problem is happening with all their laptops and it is their problem from original programming---whether your laptop is in warranty or not, they HAVE to fix it at any Toshiba authorized service center FREE, and it only takes them about ten minutes. Had the same problem with mine and they DO know how to fix it right the first time so you have no further complications. As for Toshiba, WHY ARE YOU STILL SELLING THESE LAPTOPS IF YOU KNOW THEY ARE ALL FAULTY?!?!?!?!?!?!? They should be stopped from selling faulty equipment. Toshiba is a RIPOFF.

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.
