Portege M800 - Touchpad not working properly on Windows 7

Q: Portege M800 - Touchpad not working properly on Windows 7


On windows 7 the touchad isn't working properly meaning that I can't scroll on pages by sliding my finger at the edges of the touchpad. It worked perfectly witn Vista and now it's not. I have 64bit version.

I searched for new drivers but there aren't any. How should I resolve this?


Preferred Solution: Portege M800 - Touchpad not working properly on Windows 7

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I recently updatet my Laptop (Z930-12m) to windows 10, everything is working fine so far, except the Touchpad (Synaptics).
I can't scroll any more and also the momentum setting I used before seems not to be working any longer.

So I ask myself are there any updates for the drivers planed for this? Or can I get them anywhere else?

A:Portege Z930-12M - Touchpad is not working properly after Windows 10 update

The scrolling on the touchpad works now, I just did not adjust the settings properly.
But the momentum still does not work.
Anyhow, I found a view drivers for my laptop

I have a Portege M800, Model PPM81C- 05C020.

My problem is that the light above my touchpad dims and then gradually goes off altogether. When this happens, I can't use the touchpad. Luckily I have an external mouse plugged in, but when the Synaptics mouse light goes off, it also slows down my computer. I'm typing this post very slowly and it still takes forever for the words on screen to catch up to what I'm typing. I thought maybe the driver was somehow defective, so I went to the Toshiba site and tried to download the driver for this laptop series, and then restarted, but it didn't help. I've run various programs to make sure there are no registry errors, but they all come back clean.

I'm not sure what to do. I brought it to a computer place before and they managed to fix it, but 2 months later the problem is recurring. Help!! :S

I upgraded my *portege M800* bought in *Canada* to *Windows 7 64 bit*.
Everything is right excepted the keyboard. it's a canadian bilingual keyboard with 86 keys with 13 function keys and a console buttons with 6 keys(mute, cd/dvd, play, stop,previous,next).
I didn't update any drivers because it works fine with Windows 7 drivers.

The problem is:
- the hot keys (Fn + ..) don't work anymore
- the console buttons with the 6 keys (play, pause, etc) don't work anymore

What I did:
- checked the driver of the keyboard in the device manager: its a microsoft driver
- tried to update it with a toshiba driver but *I didn't find it in the driver list for windows 7 or vista on the toshiba website*: [http://support.toshiba-tie.co.jp/windows7/download/PORTEGE_M800_64_cae.htm]

So, I don't know if it's a driver problem or anything else???


A:Portege M800 - After Windows 7 upgrade the FN keys don't work anymore


These special functions of FN keys and multimedia buttons have nothing to do with the keyboard driver. Furthermore for the keyboard there is no driver update. There is only the Windows standard driver that can be used.

The point is that you need Toshiba Value Added Package and Flash Cards Support Utility. If you have bought the M800 in Canada, I assume it?s a Canadian model and therefore you can download all drivers here:

Check this!!

Hi everyone,

I have a Portege PPM81E and am unable to get the microphone working after having upgraded to Windows 7.

I've tried all the drivers I've managed to find but no luck.

Is there anyone out there with the solution?

Thanks in advance!

A:Portege M800 - Microphone doesn't work after upgrade to Windows 7

Just few questions:
Have you upgraded original Vista version hat you got with your notebook or you have installed clean Win7 version?
Are all hardware components properly installed and listed in device manager?
How do you test mic functionality?
Is Microphone listed in sound properties > Recording devices?
Is mic set as default device?

Good mornig.
First of all, sorry for my english. I',m writting from Spain.
I have a problem with my Protege M800. I took it to a computer tecnic because it was working too slow. He told me he had to put my computer back to de situation that was when I bought it. Well, the thing is that he did so, and after that, everything is working ok , but de lights on the base of the computer are allways on ( the lights that permets you go directly to music, the play, stop botton..). I sopose that the problem is that he didn't install something, but I don't know what that something is, and the worst is that he doesn`t know either.
These lights annoy me a lot!
Can someone help me, please?

Hi all,

Recently my girlfriend gave me her TOSHIBA M800 laptop. Enlighten me pls as to why I cannot find the model M800 in Toshiba's product support tab?

The models I see there are all 805-XXXXXX.

Is 800 supposed to mean 800 series and that in fact the laptop I am having now is one of those 805-XXXXXX?

I tried to see if any of those M805-XXXXXXX match the model number I see on my laptop but none of it matches. Mine is PPM81L.

I am just trying to find out if my laptop comes with bluetooth.

Appreciate your help on this.

A:Product support for Portege M800

I?m really surprised you cannot find it but I believe you search for it on wrong page. Portege 805 can be US notebook model but if you have European model use European support page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

I experienced a usual crash of the Windows Vista on my Toshiba and had to shut down the computer through the power button on my keyboard since the Alt+Ctrl+Del function was not responding.
In the very first time I attempted to switch it back on, I got the usual message, warning me that the computer was not shut down properly. I chose to operate Windows in safe mode and shut it down properly.

However when I switched my laptop back on it does not respond to any commands at all. I can move my mouse on the screen but cannot do anything while on the windows environment..any ideas?

A:Re: Portege M800-107 doesn't responding

I bought a PORTEGE (M800-107) in 2009 and before the expiration of the 3-year-old-warranty (2012), the screen went black permanently .
I sent it to the official TOSHIBA service in Greece (called "IDEAL sa") who fixed it in about a month (and after two tries).
One and a half year later, the screen went black again. Now they ask from me 500 euros for the replacement of the monitor. Of course I'm not going to give all these money.
Portege was the 3rd Toshiba notebook I have used. I chose it because I wanted something powerful and professional. The irony is that the most expensive model went off earlier than the cheaper.
However, that was the LAST ONE from you.

PS: In order to take my notebook back (without fixing), I have to pay 30 euros, for the technicians' check!!!!!!!
Really, do you know anyone who goes to service for fun? Or am I responsible for your model's failure?

A:Defective screen on Portege M800


To be honest I?m really wondering you have this display problem. Portege and Tecra models are the best Toshiba business line notebooks and since years they are known as high quality products with best hardware.

Anyway, sometimes the best products have problems and make troubles. Similar things happen with all technical products. I know it is pretty pity and angry, especially in the moment when you need your notebook.

Maybe it sounds stupid now but maybe you can buy display on your own and find someone who can exchange it for you. I have done this for my friend few years ago. We bought display on eBay and we have exchanged it alone. Of course on our own risk.

Bye and good luck

Hi all,

can anyone please tell me where to disable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS of my Port?g? M800? I have already updated it to the latest version 4.80 but i still can't find an option related to Intel SpeedStep.

Best regards,


A:Portege M800 - How to disable Intel SpeedStep?


I dont think that option is available in the BIOS.

my laptop M800 always runs with fan at full speed, CPU usage runs between 50% to 100% even when no programs are running, is this normal?, seems the computer never seems to go to a resting or idle mode.

hope someone can help


A:Loud Portege M800 - CPU usage always at 50% or higher


Do you use your Portege with ?factory settings??

What you must do is to stop all useless processes that run in the background. This will reduce CPU usage.
By the way: change cooling method settings.
You can find it in advanced power plan settings > Toshiba Power saver > cooling method. Change it to battery optimized.
It will reduce cooling fan activity and notebook will run much quieter.

Test it please and post some feedback.

I have a Portege M800 and the lights to the right of the power button will not turn off - even if the machine is completely shut down and power cable disconnected.

I have tried updating the VAP and BIOS by downloads and have used BIOS to switch off illumination LED and tried using Dimmer.EXe.

These have all switched off the Portege light itself and the light above the touchpad, but not the 6 lights to the right of the power button.

Can anybody help?


A:Re: Portege M800 - Lights wont turn off


First of all you have to ensure that latest BIOS is installed.
If you are using the latest BIOS then try this:

Please remove the battery and disconnect AC adaptor.
Then wait some time? two, three hours.
Then plug battery and AC adaptor again.

Check the BIOS settings (set it to default)
After that try to enable or disable the illumination again?

About a week ago, my M800 laptop's multimedia buttons stopped working. They won't light up either. I've tried the Added Value Package fix and that doesn't seem to want to work for me. I downloaded TAVP but nothing happened.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the buttons work again? Thanks. I'm running on a 32 bit OS (if you need to know).

A:Portege M800 - Multimedia buttons won't work

Hi l_vasic,

Have you checked the BIOS? As far as I know there you can also enable or disable these illumination buttons. It must be enabled?

Otherwise it would be interesting to know which OS you are using.
Did you download Value Added Package for Portege M800?

I am using a Portege M800-116 running XP-SP3.

Problem 1:
Connecting Line-Out to a stereo and playing music w/ Winamp or WinMediaPlayer works fine on batteries.
As soon as I connect the power adapter, loud high frequency hiss and hum static disturbs the experience.

Problem 2:
Recording WAV or MP3 files with internal or external mic only produce mediocre results.
The resulting files include a high level of high frequency hiss and hum static.
Connecting power increases the problem.

Comparing playback and recording sound quality with my old trusted Portege M100:
My M800 is a not only low quality - it's plain unusable.

Problem 3:
Toshiba HWSetup does not start from Controlpanel.
Have tried un- and re-installing to no avail.

Thanks for guiding me towards a solution.


A:Portege M800 - Sound issue and HWSetup does not start

Here is a test recording to document the problem.

The first part has strong noise while the power adapter is attached to the M800.
The second part has still static even without the adapter.

I have an old M800-106 (model PPM81E-00K00JEN). It is good condition and has been reliable, and I don't want to scrap it. Unfortunately the Windows based BIOS update from Toshiba's website froze during it's operation, and now the laptop won't restart.

The cost of sending it to an authorised service provider to repair is significantly more than the cost of replacing the laptop, and I'd be charged even if they didn't fix it. I'm not saying it's expensive - if someone has skills and does some work they should be paid for it, but it's not what I want to spend money on for this laptop.

Environmentally it'd bad to just chuck the laptop away/take to the recycling centre.

I could strip the motherboard out and send that away to have the BIOS chip replaced or reprogrammed, but that would be time consuming and risk me damaging it.

I would like to attempt to flash the BIOS chip, using the crisis Phoenix tools that are available online, but so far haven't found a *.rom or *.wph file to use.

Where can I get the BIOS file - to be honest any version that suits this laptop would do, it doesn't need to be the most recent one.

Any helpful advice gratefully received.

I encountered some problem with my netbook (Portege M800-10W) after updating BIOS.
The BIOS updating program seems to failed. Then my Netbook automatically restarted and now I can't start my PC anymore.
All the LEDs turns on, but the sreen remain black and after few minutes, the netbook beep 3 times (1 long, 2 short).

How can I restore the BIOS to the previous version (or factory version) ?




A:Portege M800 doesn't startup anymore after updating BIOS

I think that error code means there is a Graphical/Video problem. The Mainboard or VGA Board may need replacing, or there may be a loose connection.

I would send the notebook to an ASP for repair.

I have a Prot?g? Z10A and the touchpad and keyboard intermittiently stops working after sleep mode. I cannot wake it up or restart without re-booting.

I have done the update to the firmware keyboard docker as advised in a thread on January 2014 but this has not helped the problem.
This computer is only 2 weeks old.

I have been to download site and updated all drivers and updates.
The computer works perfectly except for this problem.

When the tablet is asleep the white led is blinking, and when it is all works ok, but if the light for some reason is not blinking but permanently lit then it will not restart and I have to re-boot the tablet.

I have disabled the hibernation mode in options but still no help.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Portege Z10t-A - touchpad intermittiently stops working after sleep mode


I?m wondering if the option (within the BIOS) called Wake-Up on Keyboard is enabled.
To restore the operation of the computer from sleep mode, press the power button or any key on the keyboard dock for a short amount of time. But the keyboard keys can only be used if the mentioned option is enabled.

Note: when the notebook is in Sleep Mode, the power indicator will blink white. If the power indicator does not blink white, the notebook isn?t set to sleep mode!

No idea if this is hardware or software, but I'm trying this first.

I have an Inspiron 1525 laptop running Vista. My touchpad stopped working for some random reason a couple days ago except for the buttons. It might have started working again a while ago, but I just noticed 2 hours or so again that it was working, except for 2 things: I can't do that... uhhh... dunno what it's called, where you click the two buttons together and it does what clicking the mouse wheel on a normal mouse would do... and I can't scroll. The thing on my taskbar that tells me where my finger is on the touchpad has disappeared, as well.

A:Touchpad not working properly

Touchpads are usually proprietary pieces of hardware that have drivers supplied by the manufacturers. Check your device manager and settings in Control Panel (it may be under the Mouse settings) to be sure everything is all right there.

You might also go to the manufacturer's web site to check on a driver, and maybe an update to it. You could always reinstall it, anyway.

A:Touchpad not working properly

What state is your laptop on when the touchpad issue occurred? This happens on my fujitsu laptop when charger is plugged in. After a quick googling, found out that I just had to put the "brick" part of the charger to a good distance away from my laptop. Worked wonders! Issue usually happens with replacement chargers (due to voltage or ampere incompatibility).

Not sure though if this was your case.

Hi I have a Samsung RV510 laptop and I have a problem with the elan touchpad. It can scroll up and down but I when I click or tap on anything it doesn't do anything. I am using a USB plug in mouse but I am working on an university assignment and I need the USB portal to save my work on an USB key. Before Christmas I had the same problem and I went into the tech support in uni and he said that I had set the left click button to right click function or something like that and he went into control panel and mouse to resolve the problem. He fixed it by doing something in Mouse under Control Panel but I just can't remember what and by the way I have the setting where the elan touchpad is disabled when an USB plug in mouse is inserted. I really need help today if you can ! I have tried to adjust the settings of the touchpad in Mouse in Control Panel but even switching the buttons does not do anything to solve the problem. Sometimes when I start the laptop the touchpad works fine but an indication that is going wrong is when I am scrolling the screen with the touchpad the pop up that appears on screen when one right click appears by itself and keeps appearing whenever on the screen I move the touchpad mouse. After that the tap to click as well as left and right click buttons fail to work at all and I do not know if this is a software problem or is it a hardware problem as I said I encountered this problem already and now it's returned. Thanks

Hi there, Nmparmar          -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
Can you try to:
Make sure you use the original 65W 20V/3.25A or 90W 20V4.5A AC adapter that came with the unit.
Plug the AC adapter in another wall outlet in your house (preferrably another side of the house) - if this works, the original wall outlet that you used before when you got the issue may not be properly grounded.
Perform a power drain by:a turning the PC OFF. Remove the battery & AC adapter then hold the power button for 30secs. When done, reinsert the AC adapter and battery then boot into the BIOS by pressing F2. When inside the BIOS, press F9 to reset default settings and press F10 to save and exit.

A:My mouse/touchpad is not working properly while charging

Hi suneel_zee.
Welcome to the Community,
Have you tried different power outlets? Does this happen in different locations(even outside you house/work)?
I would suggest you to release flea power.To release flea power disconnect AC adapter,remove battery,disconnect all external peripherals(USB devices),press and hold power button for 30 seconds.
Reconnect the battery and AC adapter.Check how touchpad responds with AC Adapter connected.
If the issue persists try a different AC adapter(may be borrow from some one who uses same watt Dell AC adapter).
Let me know how it goes.
Thank You

I love my Satellite T110-107 but there are issues with the TouchPad.

1). The mouse cursor doesn't move at times. With this one I can get it to move by taking both hands away from the laptop for a moment.
2). The mouse cursor suddenly 'shoots' off to the right hand of the screen.

I've tried changing the touchpad sensitivity to both the minimum and the maximum levels, i've adjusted the 'Palm' sensitivity but nothing seems to help other than by making the sensitivity low which helps a little.

I've also noticed that when the laptop is on my lap, the problem is worse than if it's on a table.

I think that it's a problem with a build up of static on the case.

Any other ideas?.

A:Satellite T110-107 - Touchpad not working properly

Hi buddy,

I use Satellite T110 for months now and really and no problem. Everything runs great and I don?t have any problems. It?s really great notebook!!!

So it must be something wrong with yours or installation.
First of all I would recommend updating the touchpad driver. You can download it on the Toshiba website:

After this you should test it again. Check also the touchpad settings again. There are a lot of settings to improve touchpad.

The touchpad on brand new Lenova Yoga 720 does not function properly. After install, mouse pointer does not show and the touchpad does not work. The only way to get around on the computer is the touchscreen. Keyboard still works. A hard reset solves the problem temporarily. To get the mouse to show and the touchpad to work, I will have to hard reset the laptop everytime before desired use. If the computer goes to sleep, the touchpad dissapears. I do not think that the touchpad shows up anywhere in my devices. I am not sure because I do not know what the file may be called. Otherwise, I would uninstall the driver and re install. Support said to download driver off website, there isn't a touchpad driver available for download. I'd like to keep this laptop  and correct this issue. But it is a new computer so if there isn't a solution soon, I will return it instead of wasting time adding to it. Seems that many have had similar issues. Anyone any closer to an answer? Hello?

Then, I started having more occurences of cursor/touchpad issues to the point where it happens every hour of use (not an external mouse issue): Jumps around on screen (a few millimeters to inches). Move incrementally on its own without me anywhere near the laptop (generally spazzes to the left). Not allow scrolling/normal touchpad functions when issues are occuring. Functions as if I am holding down the click button while I try to move it - most frustrating part when I am doing important work. Randomly click stuff as I attempt to move it.  Here is what I have tried to do to fix it and has not worked:Roll back driver (didn't work). Update driver (no updates available). Reset device (works for a minute or so). Restart (I do this daily anyway). Reduce cursor speed and other mouse options suggested online.   I have seen similar issues for the HP Envy 17 and other notebooks, but no actual fixes have been proposed. Please help me with this issue.

Hi. I'm a first-time user and happy to have found your website!

My operating system is Windows 7. I am using a wireless Logitech Mouse (uses USB hardware). I have had this laptop for 5+ years.

1. The touchpad will not ?turn off.? Under "Mouse" on the Control Panel, functions for the Dell Touchpad should allow me to simply turn the touchpad on and off. Regardless whether it is in the on or off position, it is still on.
2. Even when I don?t touch the touchpad, the cursor skips around the screen, highlights text and deletes text. Typed text re-locates within earlier typed text.
3. There is an on/off light at the top of the touchpad that indicates the touchpad is on/off. This is not working.
4. Also this panel item allows me to manage sensitivity, buttons, gestures & edge scroll & zoom. I can work these, but the Edge Scroll & Zoom buttons do not see to change the settings.

1. I have checked the drivers for both the touchpad and mouse and I get messages that they are each up to date
2. Because the touchpad will not turn off, I have tried to manage the buttons to turn down the sensitivity, to minimize movement of text. This does not help.
3. Turning on ?Disable Touchpad & Point Stick when USB Mouse present? does not disable the touchpad.

The hinges on my computer were askew, so I sent my computer to the service center. After 3 weeks, they returned my computer to me and told me that the top "chassi" and the bottom cover have been replaced. Not sure what they meant, because the people that fixed my computer were not there at the store to explain it to me, but I'm assuming that it's the top and bottom cover of my computer. I was told that the hardware and the software are still intact, because they didn't have to alter anything during the reparation of my computer. The first thing I noticed when I started using my computer again is that it is very slow. It makes that "thinking" clicking sound all the time, even when I'm not using the computer (No programs/files open, long after the computer's startup). The system was VERY slow. It was laggy and irresponsive most of the time. I deleted multiple useless files and download new antivirus software to make sure that my computer is clean. The computer is no longer laggy, but the "thinking" sound is still there (it's there all the time).  The second thing I noticed is how my touchpad didn't respond to my click. I can move the cursor around perfectly fine, but I cannot click. Neither with a tap on the touchpad nor with an actual click on the touchpad. The touchpad registers my touch, but not my click :/ Does this have anything to do with the aforementioned hardware/software/harddrive/drivers? (My computer terminology is terrible, sorry). Thank you.&nb... Read more

When searching http://www.toshiba.eu/support/drivers/laptops/ I find no Windows 10 touchpad driver for the Z30T-A laptop. Though, there is a Toshiba signed driver delivered through Windows Update.

Is the Windows Update driver the one that is supported by Toshiba for Windows 10?

I am having a Dell Inspiron 5537 ci7 with Windows 8 (64-bit) running.
Occasionally the pointing device starts to malfunction (especially after high-end playing games)
The problem:
"When I click anywhere on a window (be it browser or windows explorer etc..), the window gets deselected. I cant browse at all.
Another browser (Chrome) specific click issue (when deselection isn't happening- The tab closes when I click on it.
Right click also does the same.. (deselects the window)
The problem is gone when I shutdown and start again - Restarting usually doesnt helps"
It seemed like a driver issue to me - I have installed the latest version of synaptics driver from dell (i.e. v16.3.15.3) - didnt helped.
Request support... Its really hindering my routine use
