I have a Satellite A45-121. When I boot up, the cursor/pointer will not move with neither the touchpad or the mouse. Consequently I can't click my user name to log on. I am running Windows XP Home Edition. Can some one walk me thru the process to log on? Appreciate it.....thanks.....

First of all - I appreciate you time and interest.
Secondly - I did the BIOS disable/enable (twice to be sure) and it is still frozen.
Still cannot click the user name in order to log on. And other suggestions?

With the battery and AC adapter removed, close the Power switch for ten seconds.
Re-attach those, press the Power button to turn the computer on, and then immediately press the F2 key while the Toshiba logo is displayed. Press F9 to restore the BIOS default settings, press F10, and then select Yes (Exit Saving Changes). The computer will restart.

There was no reaction at all when pressing the F2
I guess you have an older BIOS that opens differently. That is boilerplate for newer models. On recent machines, F9 restores the BIOS default settings and F10 saves the new settings,
Do that on your model.

followed the instructions to hold down the "C" key while restarting and still nothing.
Maybe there's something helpful here for that old model. Play around. And try a different mouse.

I used the recovery disk in BIOS and it worked.
Happy to learn that!
Please explain a little more just what you did. It may be valuable information for others here.
Do you mean that you were finally able to flash the BIOS? If so, what did you do differently?
