    Hi,

    my touchpad stopped functioning properly half a year ago. Additionally it blocks my keyboard as well. If I go to sleep mode then start the notebook again then the keyboard starts functioning but not the touchpad. Then at some days touchpad comes back to life and works for a while perfectly.

    Also, the notebook has started to heat up recently, especially around the touchpad's place.

    I have my drivers installed so I guess that it should not be a problem. What can be?

    Thanks.

    Hi buddy,

    Maybe you should update the touchpad driver. You can download driver updates on official Toshiba website:
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

    There you should find a newer version of touchpad driver.

    Regarding the keyboard it would be interesting to know if the same happens with an external one. Can you test this please?

    External keyboard works fine, connected through one of the USB port.

    Thanks, I will try the driver update,

    I've checked my drivers, I have the latest ones. Though I see that touchpad drivers are not available for win7. I guess the vista ones have to work then.

    Hello

    If you canít find Windows 7 drivers you have to use the Vista driver, thatís right.

    By the way: Have you noticed the same problem with factory settings? I mean the preinstalled Vista version that comes with your notebook.

    If not it seems to be a Windows 7 (driver) issue. Maybe itís something wrong with your Windows 7 installationÖ

    Hello

    If you have the same problem on preinstalled Vista version it might be a touchpad malfunction. Maybe it must be replacedÖ

    You should contact a service partner in your country. The guys can check the touchpad for malfunctions and replace it for you. :)
