    Toshiba laptop touchpad driver

    Hi!
    About 2 months ago I bought this super gaming laptop by Toshiba(on sale 1 yr old and guarantee expired)(Store didn't tell me that part)and of course, I use it for gaming.
    Last month I was into FPS and the touchpad kept getting in my way since the palm of my left hand kept swiping over it and I got killed easily.
    therefore, to get rid of the problem, I disabled it from BIOS ( the updated 2.10 BIOS version ) and when I got out of the FPS spirit, I wanted to re-enable it again. but for my surprise it wasn't working!
    I tried EVERYTHING I could think of.
    -returning bios to original settings
    -recovering my laptop to out-of-box state
    but nothing.

    does anyone here have ANY idea of how I can re-enable it again?

    PS: Talked with a Toshiba representative and he didn't help me at all!

    Hi GKahn
    Welcome

    Try looking in control panel for mouse , see if it can be enabled from there.

    You can also try hitting the fn key and f9 at the same time. On Toshiba that should lock and unlock the touchpad.

    I have a Dell lap top, I am going by memory from what I have read in this Forum.

    Thank you for your quick reply!
    I am grateful.
    Problem is, I tried absolutely every single configuration that I have tried, but as I already said in my post, I disabled it via BIOS
    not OS setting.
