    Any chance the drivers have been corrupted. Toshiba should have drivers available in their support site. I would try this first.

    Thanks for the quick response. Downloaded current driver v13.2.1.0 and installed. No change, still not responding.
    Thanks, Tom

    How old is the laptop? It is possible your keyboard has a defect. It might be worth a visit to a competent tech. Laptop keyboards are definitely not as easy to fix as desktop PCes. Sorry!

    Thanks for the lead.
    I installed a Toshiba utility value added pack and the touchpad is now working!!!

    All appears to be well.

    Thanks again,

    Tom

    Glad I could help. Drivers and utilities are often the easiest thing to try, and often do work.
