A couple of weeks ago the pointer device (touchpad) on my TOSHIBA laptop suddenly stopped working for me. Ever since the error, I've had to connect a mouse to the laptop through a USB, which can and has become rather a nuisance. Sadly, I haven't the foggiest when technology goes wrong, but is there a way the error can be resolved?
Well, you could try to reinstall the touchpad driver or if this would not fix the problem, try to reset the notebook back to factory settings (using Recovery disk or HDD recovery).
But in such case before starting the recovery, data backup is required
