Afraid not, Vickstar. It's just one of life's enduring mysteries about computers that change things on their own without any specific input causing it.

I have a Satellite C850-161 and faced this issue with the TouchPad. I followed the steps recommended in this thread and it worked. I see this thread started in February 2012 and it seems that this issue occurs on several models. Have Toshiba identified the root cause? Have they come back with a patch/fix?

Not as far as we know, Vincent. I'm glad the workaround worked for you.

First my Keyboard died, Just stopped working after Microsoft update about a year ago L675-s7048. Then 4 months ago the touchpad and related mouse keys failed. Tried everything. External mouse and onscreen keyboard got me by. Yesterday usong free registry cleaners- cleaned a lot of bad registry and malware Keyboard came back. System says synaptic pointing device functioning properly. But its dead. Any suggestions. After this we will tackle Disc drive not working either . Thanks, Stan astra

Please start a new thread when you have a question or problem rather than piggy backing on a 6 month old thread. If you have any further posts, please do that.
For the TouchPad, have you tried to turn it on using FN+F9? Your model computer also has a physical on/off switch located between the TouchPad and the space bar recessed in the keyboard bezel. It is very hard to see so look CLOSELY.

just press F5 it will fork if you use windows 8 or others i have the same problem but only f5 slove it hehe
I was playing around with FN key to see what each key's function is and my mouse froze. I used my USB mouse to find this thread. I have to support Aaronking on this one. FN + F5 turned the trackpad back on. So I signed up so I could make this reply! That would make this my first post in this forum. Woo Hoo! LOL Simple. Thanks!
