Touchpad not working

  1. My Alps touchpad quit working awhile back. I use a mouse, but I would still like to get it working again. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. When I try to install it the Install Wizard comes up for a second and then disappears. What's up with that? Any help appreciated.

    It could be bad, how old is the laptop? You could get it fix, they would just replace the touchpad for you. Or just get a wireless mouse that uses USB instead.

    As I stated in my post, I am using a mouse. The laptop is a 10 month old Toshiba M-55. I would just like to get the touchpad working anyway, just for the heck of it.
