Toshiba Touch Pad not working

  Ben43 10:42 03 Nov 14

I have a Toshiba Lap top Satellite C50-A-19T running Windows 8.1. The touch pad just stopped working. Pressed FN F5 etc no change. Went onto Toshiba site they recommended uninstalling the Synaptics driver and downloading their recommended driver. Did this but after running program it said the Synaptics (Syn TP) Mouse Install failed. Any ideas although I can use an external mouse it is sometimes more convenient to use the touch pad. Ta!!

The touch pad just stopped working

try reinstalling the original driver if still no working yiu may have to open the machine to check the connection.

The touch pad driver came pre installed and I uninstalled the original in order to install the driver recommended by Toshiba which will not install. * am loathe to open up the machine as it is only 8 months old and still under warranty.*

there are two possible drivers for your machine model

Touch Pad Synaptics

Touch Pad Alps Electric

Try removing the battery and power brick. Press and hold the power button in for 30 seconds. Replace the battery and power up. You should have the generic driver installed now. See if it now works.

Hi guys found the problem it was a conflict with the Winamp program. I refreshed the computer and checked each time after loading each program and it turned out to be the Winamp program. Also did a system restore point after installing each program. Thanks guys for all your input.
