    My Toshiba Satellite TouchPad is frozen and fn-f5 and f9 won't fix the problem and I am at my wits end.

    Hp laptops have a small pinhole in one corner of the touchpad. It is actually a toggle that, when double tapped, turns on or turns off the touchpad. I believe it possible your Toshiba may have the same touchpad which may be the source of your problem. Double or single tap the toggle and you may unfreeze it. [emoji51]

    Alternatively...on the Task Bar, there is an icon called ELAN pointing device. Right-clicked, you'll get 2 options...choose "Property of Touch Pad". That will take you (by a short-cut) to Mouse Properties on on the Control Panel. At the very bottom of this there is a box. When checked, the touch pad is disabled. When left unchecked, the touch pad is enabled!
