June 27, 2015
For not working Toshiba Laptop Touch pad device with
Windows OS: Turn off your computer by holding your power on/off button for 15
seconds, until the computer power light goes off. Unplug the Adapter Cord and
also take out the battery. Return the battery, and plug the Adapter Cord back,
[(I recommend that you must use a power bar, for your computer protection just
in case of a power outage, [shock]). FYI! I do not plug the computer A/C
directly to an electric outlet.
Press and hold down FN +F9 at the same time together
doesn't work, [i.e. repeatedly, and or at least 3 times]. If that doesn't work,

virus protection for your computer I would recommend you the following
antivirus software’s you can download
