Touchpad not working

I have Model Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301. Touchpad not working. Is there a driver I need updated or is there a simpler fix. I have read about the Fn+F9. But I do not know what the Fn key is! I found only the F9 key on keyboard.

Wouldn't hurt to reinstall the driver.

 

   Alps Touchpad driver for Windows XP

   s193tpadx.exe

 

And this utility.

 

   Toshiba Touchpad Enable/Disable Utility for Windows 2000/XP

   s193tpenx.exe

 

See the section Disabling or enabling the TouchPad on p. 54 of the Satellite 1905 Seried User's Guide.


I do not know what the Fn key is!

It's at the lower-left corner of the keyboard, between the Ctrl and Alt keys. See p. 71 in the User's Guide.

Re: Touchpad not working

that did it. Fn=F9 worked! thanks now can you recommend a memory upgrade for this laptop. I know how to get to access door, but I think there is another hiding under keyboard. Do I have to replace or install new memory in both or can I just do one?

Re: Touchpad not working

Happy to learn that worked.


..recommend a memory upgrade for this laptop.

According to the specs for your model, it comes with 256 MB expandable to 1 GB. 

 

It's safest to use Kingston's best memory. See the details at their Memory Configuration for Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301/1905-S302.

 

Access to the user-accessible memory module is explained on p. 55 of the Satellite 1905 Series User's Guide.

 

If you wish to access the second slot, see this article.

Good luck!
