Hi!
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro C850.

When I first got the laptop, the cursor would freeze up, I managed to google it, and I found this thread.

In the comments it says to go FN + F5, and that worked, kinda, but I had to do it a few times just to get it to work.
For about a year, I've been having this problem, and a lot of the time it will freeze up for five minutes at a time and the FN + F5 keys wont work unless I just keep pressing them or mucking around with the keyboard or even try scroll.

As I use my laptop a lot (more than 12 hours a day), it happens a lot, once a day perhaps, and it's getting quite annoying.

I was wondering if there was an actual way to disable it, as it just happens randomly while I am using the mouse.
If anyone knows a way to disable it, that'd be nice, thanks!


P.S: If I plug in an external mouse, it does work perfectly and it NEVER freezes up, but I always seem to break my mice, so that is not an option.
