touch pad disintegrate?

Ive got a g6 pavilion and my touch pad looks like it is slowly disintigrating. Ive had for less then a year and it started to happen about six months ago. feels almost oily to the touch and as the layers of the touchpad have melted. I will attach a photo to show you what I mean. I was in afghanistan for most of the time that I had this, but I doubt that dirty hands, i had sometimes would have done that in the short period of time. any help with this would be appreciated


Yes, I see that now.  It works without any problem?  It seems like it should work even with cosmetic flaws like this.  As I said, you could clean it up if you think this might help... otherwise he would just need to be replaced (of the touchpad/superior cover).

  • My computer laptop touch pad keeps freezing

    So I had this problem with my HP laptop for a while now. My mouse freezes randomly when I use my touch pad, make me have to close my laptop and open it again to my touch pad start labor, it might sometimes take awhile to start to get back to work. Someone please tell me what to do this gets really annoying when I have to keep closing my laptop to get my touchpad to stop the freezing point.

    (P.S my mouse works fine when I plug in a mouse, so I know that my touchpad is the promblem here.)

    Hi Chanellex,

    Thank you very much for the product number. I hope you had a good weekend. I included the link to the driver for your TouchPad below. Start by making sure that the original driver is deleted. Go to your device manager and looking for your Synaptics TouchPad or something similar. Right click and uninstall. Then, install the link below. Please, note use this method if you have an external mouse, if you install just the software.

  • Equium L10 - touch pad stop working (mouse)

    Hi guys,.

    really need your help. I have an Equium L10-300 and my touch pad has stopped working. A few days back, he started to freeze, but reboot solved the problem... but now it has stopped working all together. The icon that normally indicates at the bottom right of the screen disappeared. Have done the FN9 thing and tried to look at the settings...

    Help, please

    Thanks, Pete

    Hi friend

    have you already tried to remove the mouse from the Device Manager? Or reinstall the driver would also be a very good attempt to resolve this situation as a whole.

    The first step that needs to be done is to exclude a software error, then go->> support downloads & -> support-> download home page-> download drivers

    Get the driver for your mouse and reinstall. If it shouldn´t work then come here and we will see what could be the next step...

  • Satellite Pro A300 PSAGDE Touch pad and fingerprints fingerprint sensor problem

    I have been runing Windows Vista on my Toshiba Satellite Pro A300 PSAGDE. Because my original Windows Vista key has been blocked I did a system recovery CD Toshiba vith XP. Everything work fine except the fingerprint sensor and the touchpad. Manager access suite said he couldn't connect with equipped and the driver touch pad in the taskbar icon shows but it seems to be inactive. The touchpad does not work even though I have pres FN + F9.

    What should I do to save this problem.

    Sory for my bad English, I just form Slovenia, I hope you understand.

    Somehow the material is not properly recognized.
    It will be interesting to see if the fingerprint sensor and touchpad may work with Vista preinstalled originally.
    I think that Alex is right. Contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. They should check the functionality of the hardware.

  • Portege R930 - Touch Pad on / off button does not work


    R930 nine (PT330A) and a minor but annoying thing... the small button above the touch pad and below the space bar for the Touch Pad on / off does not work. I can't find the configuration options for this anywhere. Fn + F9 works very well.

    Not much, but I like things to work! And this button would be very convenient for a quick switch.

    Thank you

    Can you use the Toshiba? I think you should have the button eco and presentation on this machine.

    Check please if you can enable/disable these keys in the HWsetup tool.
    I don t have Win8 machine, but I think that all these buttons can be enabled/disabled.

    Please, check and send comments.

  • Portege R700 - Touch Pad, ecoUtility and presentation of the key does not


    I got a Portege R700 with Windows 7 64 bit.
    This machine starts very slowly after the log in user mode only.
    The system is waiting for 1 to 2 Minutes before you can work. In administrator mode erverything is fine and fast.

    Thus our directors thought it might be the Toshiba Software and a lot has been disabled or uninstalled.
    Because this did not help and because I thought that it migt be cause of Kaspersky, I started to reinstalled and update the software from Toshiba. Most of it works now. Shortcut keys does not work, then I start TfcRst.exe via autostart now, even he would somehow it would be better in 'systemecommencent '.

    But still some keys do not work. The Tablet touch power switch, just above the touch pad does not work.
    The Fn F9 works. And the two keys to the right upper corner (ecoUtility/off button and the presentation-Key) do not work. In all three major, I get a pop up saying "this function not taken in charge.

    Anyone has any idea of this?

    Thank you



    Why you n t try to restore the operating system back to the same state until the administrator has removed or uninstalled the Toshiba Software?

    Generally speaking the VAP (value added package) controls the multimedia keys.
    Also the FN keys require the VAP and Flash memory card Support utility.

  • turn off the touch pad hp pavillion


    I have a HP pavilion g6-2240sq with windows 7.

    In the instructions that came with the laptop it says touch quickly 2 times a circle in the top left of the touch pad to turn it off. I tried, but it does not work.

    I want to disable the Touchpad, cause it gets in the way of typing.

    Can someone help me please?

    Thank you!


    It seems that you can run Windows 7 on a system designed for Windows 8 and you run without drivers TouchPad.

    HP Pavilion g6-2240sq Notebook PC Drivers & Downloads

    This does not explain it.  No worries.  This is not my personal specialty;  I have a couple of options for you.  If none of them does not work because the pilots have not features you need or the drivers don't work well on your machine, we can ask for additional help.



    • You might try your driver for Windows 8 running in compatibility mode.  Lot of software works in compatibility mode - if the driver for the TouchPad will be happy if this is something you can try or no--a personal choice.

    Download and do not install the device:

    Synaptics TouchPad Driver sp61882

    How to install and run the drivers / software Compatilbility Mode:

    Drivers and software compatibility by AttackOfZaq mode running


    Try this Windows 7 driver for a similar computer of the g6:

    Synaptics TouchPad Driver sp53851

    • Download and press twice on the installation package
    • Restart / reboot the computer after installation


    For something like this, it is best if you have an external mouse attached - it's common sense and not because of something flakey on occur.  It's like the race without a disc of recovery and personal backups: you can get away with it for years and then ONE day, Poof - here you are with a blank screen and no way to recover your data.

  • Pro L10: After using a wireless mouse, the touch pad has stopped working

    Pro L10. After using a wireless mouse, the built in touch pad has stopped working properly. At the start of the keypad icon touch shows and the touchpad works intermittently, after a few minuets, the icon disappears and the touch pad stops working. In the control panel / mouse & or device drive I can how the program works, then disappears.

    I deleted the software and reinstalled nothing doesn't. In some cases, I get a message that a pointer is on.

    Can you help me?


    It seems that the wireless mouse or mouse wireless drivers/software has a bad influence on the touchpad.
    I put t have a good solution for this problem. Well, you can consult the page of the Toshiba driver for latest driver updates. If the updates doesn't solve this problem I suggest to use either the mouse wireless and disable the touchpad with FN + F9 key combination or use a regular USB mouse.
    I guess that you are having regular problems with a USB mouse.

  • Satellite A660 - touch pad / stop and other buttons do not work

    Dear people on this forum,

    Recently, about 3 weeks ago, I turned on my computer and I cleaned out the dust because it was overheating.

    about 2 weeks before, I noticed that my touchpad is not working and the buttons at the top of the page do not work, there is no light (multimedia audio buttons wireless) I can't activate/deactivate or either, I don't know how. I don't know if the problem because I cleaned my laptop and has not logged a few threads back but I included this detail because I do not use these buttons if I haven't noticed if they were on. but he said: 2 days ago, I don't know how my wireless exploded Ant when I press fn + f8 (wireless) wireless communication switch is turned off, which is one of the buttons is not working (upstairs next to / switch even with my touch pad)

    I tried the following:

    Windows Update
    turn off the computer, remove all cables and battery and wait for about 30 minutes. Then then hold down the button for 30 seconds
    Reinstall the support flash cards, hw Setup utility / value pack
    and finally a Toshiba out of the recovery of the box using the recovery of 2 cd product

    I don't know what to do next. It's either:

    try something else
    or is there a wire is connected both touchpad and the buttons at the top and I have to open my laptop and connect them.

    Please answer as to my next step to get my wireless.

    Please don t get me wrong, but I don t know how to help you now. Disassembly of the laptop is to only authorized persons and if you do it on your own there is always a risk that something may be hurt or may be damaged.

    OK, I must also say that I also removed my machine too but I got lucky and everything is OK as before.
    I put t know how A660 looks inside, but the principle is still the same and I can't imagine you have whatever it is damaged.
    You know very well that we cannot say much about your problem. What you need to do now is the final test of functionality and install original recovery image that you got with your laptop. Test the functionality with the factory settings. If the problem is still there, I m afraid you must open for new laptop and check if everything is connected correctly.

    Last option is to contact the service and ask for help.

  • Satellite C660-28 d - keyboard and touch pad problems

    Hey guys,.

    In the past months, my laptop had become almost unusable.

    It began with the key odd work stoppage or becomes difficult to use, but now it happened to many of them and last night my touch pad stopped working all together.

    I'm not really a tech head and fight with it.

    I have a Toshiba satellite C660 28 T.

    Any help would be thank you very much.
    Maybe even a factory reset?

    I don't know how to proceed.



    With regard to the problem of keyboard:

    From my point of view of the few sounds of keyboard described as a material problem internal related dysfunction... probably in order to solve this problem, the keyboard should be replaced... just to make sure that your internal keyboard is affected, please join the external USB keyboard and check if it works properly.
    If you see any problems, the problem is no doubt by a malfunctioning internal keyboard and as mentioned earlier, you will need to replace the keyboard.

    Regarding the touchpad:

    I'm not sure if the two issues are interrelated, but the touchpad can be disabled by using the function keys... I recommend you to check this... (function key details are also in the user manual)... you can also try reinstalling the touchpad drive.

    Tip: this forum contains many discussions about similar problems... so I recommend you to read the recommendations posted in this community.

  • Tecra A3X-112: Fn + F1... Touch pad to work stoppage

    Hello everyone,

    I have a Tecra A3X-112 on which Windows XP has been recently reinstalled.
    I installed Windows XP before with other different copies, but this is the first time that I've known a few misadjustments.

    My problem is that the combined with F1, F2... Fn keys stopped working, as well as Assist bottom on top of the keyboard.
    In addition, the touchpad works, but I cannot turn it off.

    I've been looking at the posts of some other users, and it seems that it is a problem to download the proper drivers from Toshiba Web page.

    My question is: what drivers for the keys?

    a. for * Fn + function keys * should I intalled * utilities * or * Hotkeys utility for display devices? * There are even some users who recommend to installed a BIOS update or a common Module driver, but I'm not sure about this. By installing the appropriate driver, are all combinations FN + function keys work, or only some of them?
    b. for * Touch Pad *, should I intalled only * Touch Pad on / off utility * or * Touch Pad Driver * is also necessary?
    c. for * help the bottoms? *

    Send me the answers, please.
    Thanks in advance for your help.


    The features of FN keys depend on several different factors. As a first step, it is important to have installed common modules. She is named for the other Toshiba designed tools and utilities.
    Just for example: for the use of the keys FN + F2 (standby power options), you need to install modules common and tool watch.
    While the first step I recommend to install common modules again.
    When you are finished, check the functionality of the FN and post the result.

    For FN + F9, you need to install TOSHIBA Touch Pad on / off Utility. Before that, it must be installed ALPS Pointing - device Driver.
    You know, it's not easy to simply offer a solution to this. All the drivers, tools and utilities must be installed in order to good facilities. After having done that, everything should work well.

    One thing, to help buttons try with TOSHIBA controls again.

  • Tecra A9 - sometimes I can not type - click using the touch pad

    There are times that I can not type - click using the touch pad or other keys (all of a sudden without any reason)

    I can move the cursor in this case but not tap - click here to be able to click once again, I have to restart (this happens on both windows and linux)

    On windows, I press alt + ctrl + del and when the Task Manager window I can tap it and after I do I can tap - Select something else and so on.
    Click on the Task Manager click on anything else until I reboot and the problem goes away just to appear suddenly unexpectadly at the same time.

    I have the newest bios and driver accupoint

    Any tips?

    This happens only with touchpad, or when you use an external USB mouse?
    For me it looks more like the Windows operating system freezes for a short period. Is this good?
