Hello,

Try this 1

1) First make sure that the Touchpad is not locked. Hold the "Fn" key and then

press "F1" key.

[Note : A touchpad symbol should be there on the "F1" key or else look for the

symbol in the function keys and use that particular key with the combination Fn.]

2) Unplug the power cord --> Remove the battery --> Hold the power button for

60 seconds --> Connect the power supply then try to switch ON the laptop and

later put the battery back into the laptop.

Good Luck

Thanks worked a treat
Wow, you are genius!, This worked for me. Thank you so much!
thank you, it was helpfull
Thank you very much. It's really helpful.
GREAT! I have an application in which I use ctrl-f5 a lot, probably hit FN-f5 accidently!
Didn't have to do the battery trick and all, just hit FN-f5 and it was back.

Indeed..Same problem on inherited Toshiba C850-BLU.
I followed your process step by step and it totally worked as long as you don't try to skip parts of the directions. If you want to make it work, do it exactly as the process Jack4all directs. Believe me, I tried to leave out a step and it didn't work.
Thank you so much. I thought the machine was needing junk pile if no on board mouse...but I re-read your directions and followed exactly the second time and it totally worked!!!!!. Now we have a working mouse pad on a 64bit laptop. T YVM!
