Toshiba Portege Z30-A - Accupoint doesn't function

Q: Toshiba Portege Z30-A - Accupoint doesn't function

Hey there!

I had a problem with the Accupoint, it moved alone, so I desactivated.
But the problem is that I also desactivated the two buttoms above the pad.

Is there a any way to repair the AccuPoint or desactivate it without desactivating the buttons?

I have a Toshiba Portege Z30-A with Windows 10

Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Toshiba users

I bought a new Toshiba Z30 in May 2015 from an online vendor on ebay in Australia. Great laptop.

About 6 months ago, the accupoint started moving on its own, so I disabled it in the mouse settings and used only the trackpad.

Now the trackpad no longer works properly. The laptop will recognise and respond to button clicks. However (intermittently and frequently) the cursor no longer responds to input from the trackpad itself.

I have tried uninstalling existing drivers and allowing windows to install its own, but this didn't work.

Because it is intermittent, I wonder whether this is a hardware issue?

Any advice on how I could repair this?

Thanks

Greetings,
I just got a new Portege X30 D 121 and installed Fedora on it.

However, the fingerprint sensor and IR scanner do not work. And, most importantly, the Accupoint and the additional buttons do not work.

When I move the Accupoint, it blocks the mouse for a few seconds and registers a series of left mouse button clicks.
On X, it just blocks the mouse for a few seconds without registering the left mouse button clicks.

The output of `libinput list-devices`: https://ptpb.pw/swSU.txt
The output of `lsusb`: https://ptpb.pw/GUnb

Everything works fine in Windows 10, including the Accupoint.

Has anyone had a similar experience or an idea on what could be causing this?

hi there,

i have recently purchased a toshiba satellite pro 4270 laptop from ebay, and am wanting to install xp. However i am a little worried about wether or not xp will detect the accupoint II mouse, because i have read things on the internet about people installing win 2k/xp, and finding that the accupoint mouse button does not work, and so far i have yet to find any accupoint drivers for windows XP. So basically i am a litle worried that xp won't load any drivers for accupoint II if i install xp.

does anyone know the answer to my question/ have a link to accupoint drivers for windows xp?

Hello.

My Toshiba laptop does not let any of the function keys operate properly. When I press one, nothing happens. I have also tried holding down the FN key, to no avail. I thought this was a Toshiba issue, but after multiple customer support "experiences" who told me that the operating system was corrupted, I think it may be a Windows 8.1 issue. This happened under Windows 8 too. Toshiba has a keyboard driver for this laptop model for Windows 7, but not 8.1. Is this a common problem with Windows 8.1, and if so, can you provide a solution or fix to this issue? (All drivers are up to date and function key support is enabled in the BIOS)

Laptop: Toshiba c55-a5285.

Thank you very much,

Hi, new to this forum. I have a Portege z930-14D laptop with 64 bit system with Intel Core i5-3437U processor and Windows 7 professional. I was using an external screen till recently. When i stopped using it, i noticed that the function key for display brightness wasn't working. When i pressed fn key and f6 or f7, brightness setting came up but i could change the brightness. All other fn key related operations were fine. I saw some online forums for this problem and followed their recommendation around upgrading diplay driver and value added pack from the UK support website of Toshiba. Also clicked on restart flash cards. Nothing seems to have worked and now the fn key itself has stopped working i.e., nothing happens when i press fn key and i cannot perform any operations using fn key. Please suggest what could be a solution to this problem. Thanks.

I have been given a working Toshiba Portege 3020CT...

96MB RAM
2GB HDD
Windows 98SE
CPU - Currently Unknown

I can't connect it to the net till I go to work next week..Actually I can't do anything till I take it into work next week, but my project is to put Windows 2000 onto it and hopefully upgrade the HDD.

1 - Short of puling the machine apart sooner than I have to, would anyone happen to know if I can throw in a 2.5" 40Gig HDD? (Does anyone know the physical size of the drive?)

2 - How can I find out the CPU speed? I usually use SIW but USB and internet are out of the question at the moment. In Control Panel > System it only shows IntelGenuine (r) processor.

3 - Any recommendations on how I can install 2000? The system is waaaay to old to support USB booting, the only relevant drive this machine has is an external floppy. I might be able to get my hands on a PCMCIA network card but somehow I doubt this machine supports network booting.



Apparently this model has run 2000 before

I recently purchased a Portege ct 7000 lap-top for college used for about $100. it works great in al respects other than the battery. When I recharged it it would onlytake a 30% charge and and after repeated recharging this is degrading. I have priced batteries on several websites and most cost more than what I paid for the whole kit.

I have found several off brand batteries for non-Ct series portege 7000 models that look almost identical to mine. Will these work or do I need a CT series battery?

First off, sorry if I'm posting in the wrong forum mod, please move as needed. Thanks in advance...

It all started when this new-to-me machine, which was dropped several weeks ago to seemingly no ill effect on anything but the case, froze as it seemed to be going into slleep mode. Or maybe hibernation. In any case the Teletubbies-green hills were the only thing on the screen, when I decided to power the machine off...as it had been sitting that way for several minutes, something it had never done. A few seconds later after depressing the power button, it was off. Maybe twenty minutes later, I turned the laptop back on again. But this time no Windows XP Pro SP2 startup screen, just the following error, after and while hearing the hard drive repeatedly do a short seek:
160
Invalid Boot.ini
Booting from C:\windows\

Or something very similar. At any rate, the machine would restart after a few minutes of showing this and repeat the process: BIOS boot screen, black screen, error screen.

So I have a few questions:
1. Do I have a bad 1.8" 40GB hard disk on my hands? If so, where to get a new one? An iPod? Maybe a $350 classic's 160 gig would work? Or maybe I could run GRC's SpinRite on the drive?
2. How would I access the drive to either fix the boot.ini, scan it with SpinRite or other software, reinstall Windows, etc.? I didn't get an optical or other drive with this eBay purchase and I didn't see anything in the BIOS for USB booting...does that mean... Read more

Hello everyone, I bought from Amazon a Toshiba Portege Z30, and it came pre-installed Windows 10 Pro.
In the instructions it states that I can restore to Windows 7 Pro, but when I try to download the ISO from the Microsoft page, it tells me that my key is invalid.

Is it a page fault, or is my key not valid to activate W7?

If I get an ISO of Windows 7 Pro, do you think it will be automatically activated with the original key that came with the laptop?

Hi,

I have a floppy bootdisk (which will also allow me to access the recovery discs from a usb cd:rom drive - I'm told). I don't get that far though - from the boot screen (start up and F12) if I select floppy drive to boot I just go to flashing cursor... and that's it. If I select internal harddrive I get a warning that a file is missing or corrupt:

Any help much appreciated.

Do you have an actual XP CD from Microsoft? I have NEVER had good experiences with recovery disks as they tend to not work half the time.

You may need to contact Toshiba for a new set of disks. If you had an XP CD we could maybe fix the underlying error.

This means that the the Boot File on the HDD is corrupted or the HDD has failed and the boot sequence has by passed the HDD and is going to the next device in the Boot Sequence which is a Network Boot which fails.
Boot off of the Windows Disc Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn Boot off of the CD and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
You can also download the ISO image for Seatools or Drive Fitness in my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created CD and run the Quick and Advanced tests on the HDD to test the integrity of the drive.

You need a wireless adapter in your laptop. If you currently don't have one then you can buy it. Something that goes into the PCMCIA slot would be the simplest.

Usually you don't need any subscription to gain access to normal WiFi networks. At most you have to register your computer with the network owner.

Try downloading Fedora Linux iso, and burn that image to a CD. Boot with it, and when it comes to its desktop, you will see all your hard drives. IF the CD won't boot, then its a machine problem. If the hd doesnt show up, then we know it is a hd problem. If the hd does show up, you can copy out all your data onto a usb memory stick.

Hello,Apologies if I've posted this in the wrong subforum.I have a Toshiba Portege that runs Vista. A few weeks ago, I installed new Synaptics touchpad drivers. Everything seemed normal, but when I restarted the computer as directed, it froze on the black screen that says "Toshiba - Leading Innovation." I had to shut it off by taking the battery out and unplugging it. I spent an hour or two restarting it over and over, only to have it freeze every time. Then, on one of my startup attempts, I got a different screen - something about my computer being unable to start up properly and repairing the problem. I followed the prompts and was able to get onto my Desktop. I figured the problem must be related to the new Synaptics touchpad driver, so I did a system restore to get rid of it. I thought the problem was solved.Last night I installed a webcam driver. A while later, I installed FinePix Viewer. FinePix Viewer installed successfully and prompted me to reboot, so I did. I ran into the same problem I described above - the screen kept freezing at startup. Things I tried:1) Waiting to see if the laptop was just taking longer than normal to start. Nope: definitely frozen.2) Unplugging the laptop, removing the batteries and then holding the power button down for several minutes. Didn't help.3) Tapping F2 as soon as the computer started.

I hope someone can help with this new problem I've encountered on my Toshiba Z835 laptop that's running on Windows 7.
Two days after installation of some Windows 7 updates, I discovered that none of the function keys on my keyboard were working (neither the FN key, nor any of the F1-F12 keys); and also the wifi function had been disabled and couldn?t be enabled/turned on. I've compiled a list of the recent update installations in case I may need to uninstall one or more items to solve the problem, but I?m hoping that some of the Windows 7 users here may have encountered the same issues and could share how they were resolved.

I should mention that I came across a thread on this forum concerning a similar situation after upgrading to Windows 10, in which several posts (including one from a Windows 7 user) reported success in turning on the disabled wifi function by running TSBWireless.exe (found here: C:\program files\TOSHIBA\Flashcards\ButtonSupport\); unhappily, however, that didn?t work in my case.

I am able to connect the DVD drive (with this adapter) to a computer running XP and I am able to access DVD’s on that computer. The recovery disk has instructions that tell me to use an external DVD drive (to perform the recovery) but isn’t as specific as the website as to which DVD drive to use. As a side note: the instructions do say that the drive cannot be formatted in NTFS. I think that I just need to find a way to copy the sys files onto the hard drive and then copy a generic DVD driver onto the hard drive so I can access the DVD when it is attached to the Tablet PC. I would greatly appreciate any experience or suggestions as to how I might get this to work without having to buy one of these specific DVD drives that the Toshiba Site suggests.

After reading other posts for similar issues (although these other posts didn’t provide an answer for me), I thought I might want to clarify a little. I have pulled the hard drive out of the tablet and hooked it up to a desktop using an adapter. I can format t... Read more

A:Toshiba Portege M200 Tablet PC recovery

I thought I should add; I have hooked the tablet hard drive up to the desktop as a primary hard drive and tried formatting it, copied the sys files over and windows 98 startup files to the drive. Then I put the hard drive back into the tablet, hooked up the external DVD drive and powered on the laptop. It errors out stating that it cannot connect to the external drive.

Hello, I am having an issue with an older Toshiba. It hasn't been used in a while, but when I went to use it for the first time in about 2 years, it is giving me an error message saying, "**** Bad check sum (CMOS) **** Check system. Then press F1 key." I can press the key and go into a BIOS setup screen, but after about 1 minute it just shuts off. I know that I may need to change the BIOS battery, but would that be what's causing the sudden shut off? If it helps, it also makes a single clicking sound when it shuts off, but I assume that it's just because of the screen turning off. Any help would be greatly appreciated, but if it can't be fixed it might just be time for a new laptop... Would love to salvage this one though =(

Howdy,

I would replace the CMOS battery first........and see if that solves the problem.

I have an old Toshiba Portege 7200 series laptop and am setting up a wireless network. I'm using a Linksys router and a Linksys Wireless G Notebook adapter 2.4 GHz, 802.11g. The software loaded fine, but I haven't been able to detect a signal. It hangs up on "searching" and never finds the very same signal I'm using now to send this email. Any help would be appreciated.

The original battery is dead, charge indicator light does not come
on at all when power cord is plugged in.
Bought new battery, charging light comes on when power cord is
plugged in but battery will not power on the computer. Could there
be a problem with the battery I purchased, or is there be a problem
with the connection? Has anyone experienced this?

I guess it could be either, though it is odd though that the charge
light comes on as if charging and did not on the old dead cell.
Makes me think that perhaps the new battery is not holding enough
charge to power on laptop and the problem is the battery not the
connection.
Can anyone help?

A:Sound problem with toshiba portege M600

Simple thing to do as you just got it so you don't have huge thing to backup or not at all simply do a fresh install of Windows 7 on your laptop. It is better to do fresh install rather than making an upgrade.

Also you may try to install the latest driver for you sound card.

Hello all,

i know somebody who owns a portege R830-1C8. He asked me, if my notebook RAM is compatible with his notebook.

Actually he has inside the notebook 2gb 1Rx8 PC3-10600S-09-11-B2.

My RAM is 4GB 2Rx8 PC3-12800S-11-12-F2.1600.

Can he use my RAM?

Thx and greetz

Hi all,

We have an odd issue with one of Our Portege Z20's

When switched on you see the Toshiba Screen and then the screen just goes blank. If you tap f2 etc then you are asked for a supervisor password, and again after entering the password the screen goes blank. We have let the battery run flat and this has not solved the issue.
I have connected a external monitor and still the same thing occurs.

Any idea how we can fix this
