Hello, i opened and cleaned my toshiba qosmio X-300-130 and when i turned it on evrything worked fine except my touchpad it was not working neither the buttons of it,So i reinstalled the driver SYMANTICS PAD but nothing changed so i reinstalled my WINDOWS 7 64-BIT but again no change ,,, pls pls pls help !!!
i once did that while taking apart my other toshiba
i have no idea how the x300 is constructed but in my old satellite to get the top lid off you need to disconnect a flat "cable" from the motherboard that powers and connects the touchpad
if you have done so it is possible that you misplaced this cable inserting the cable underneath the socket instead of in the socket - its really easy not to notice and then take apart your computer again in anger
if this was the case remember there are two clips on both sides of the sockets that lock the cable in
before inserting the cable inside you should pull them towards you, then put the cable in as deep as possible and while applying pressure, so it doesnt slide out, lock the clips
Thnx for you concern but in the DEVICE MANAGER IT SHOWS THE MOUSE AS CONNECTTED !!! and working without any problems, but i realised that even the FN+F9 is not working-i dont think it is a hardware problem anymore i think it DOESNT SUPPORT WINDOWS7-64BIT... Do you agree ?
I dissembled my laptop 2 times today and I have reinstalled 3 times. I tried xp.
I tried vista and I reinstalled again windows 7.
none of them did work and in device manager it is showing me that the PS/2 is connected and working properly.
I checked the Bios it is enabled. everything is fine. There is only 1 thing left. Maybe the touchpad is damaged and I need one. Do u agree? and if yes where can I buy and ORIGINAL one from?
Just one question: has touchpad worked before you disassembled the notebook?
I think you have done something wrong during the disassembling procedure which would affect the touchpad functionality.
Furthermore the touchpad should work even if the sysnaptics driver has not been installed. The Win 7 contains the standard touchpad driver which would allow using the touchpad without an installation of special drivers.
Question 2: did you check if BIOS contains an touchpad settings which enabled and disabled this pointing device? Check this… to enter the BIOS press F2 while booting up the unit… I think pressing F9 would set the BIOS to default.
Well, you asked where you could purchase a new touchpad part…well, you can purchase this from Toshiba ASP (service partner) in your country.
Yes it was working,and the BIOS IS checked evrything is as it shoud be,but the only thing left is THE TOUCHPAD TO BE DAMAGED,any way soon when i have time i will take it to the TOSHIBA SERVICE in my country.. ): i thought it is sth easy but, definetly not
I'm still thinking its hardware related issue. Why? Because the touchpad does not work using different systems. You said that BIOS settings are ok, so I don’t see other explanation for that. You said also that touchpad is NOT disabled. The FN + F9 enables and disables touchpad but it seems that you have already tested this.
Also the in settings (in my case I can find this) in control panel -> mouse -> Advanced tab -> advanced setting button should provide an option to enable/disable the touchpad.
Last but not least you said that touchpad worked properly before notebook has been disassembled… so according to all this facts I assume its hardware realted…
