Hello,

I was using my Toshiba Satellite and it froze up. I turned it off and then back on and my mouse pad stopped working. My cursur will move and highlight an icon but will not follow the command when clicked. I tried the function key and f9 and nothing.
Thank you for any help provided.

I know that alot of Toshiba's have a little oblong button right above the mouse pad and below the space bar that will enable/disable the keyboard touchpad also. Lot's of people, including myself, have overlooked it....
