i have a toshiba satellite laptop running WIN7.
the touchpad on it is lousy but usually i just plugin a mouse to obviate the problem as my experience is that most laptop touchpads are lousy. i was also told by a friend who had similar problems, tech support ultimately told her she was out of luck.
but lately i'm on the road without access to a desk so i can't use a mouse. about half the time it works reasonably. but sometimes clicking has no effect. and the pad is often slow & frequently unresponsive. i have to use tabs or other keys to get the cursor to re-engage.
i checked that the driver is updated. i have disabled & re-enabled it. i uninstalled the driver & re-installed it. anything else i can do? or is this just 'state of the art'?
everything else about the machine is up to date & in good working order (it's only 6 months old anyway)
