When I tried to do the ipod I got an error message and things pretty much froze up. I was able to log off and shut down but now that I rebooted... my touchpad isn't working. I have NO clue on how to fix it and can't seem to find anything online that helps. (the little pointer is just stuck in the middle of the screen). When I plug in an external mouse it works just fine.
The laptop is a Toshiba (A305D-S684. Any ideas?

OR if that doesnt work...
You could always do a power cycle:
Ex: unplug the AC (the plug in the wall from the laptop) .. take the battery out.. Plug the AC back in and try to turn computer ON with AC alone (Ex, leave the battery out and just start computer with AC power).. Once windows loads up and everything is fine, then turn system off. Unplug AC.. put battery back in.. Plug AC back in and restart computer..
Hope this works!

Well 2 hours and much frustration later... the system restore is done... and it still doesn't work. Argh... I'll have to make another trip to Best Buy.

Hopefully that link works. It's a link to the Touchpad driver you can try and install.
If the link doesn't work, go here and select your model and its on the 3rd page.

I have no clue what actually did it... but I swear after trying all those things, tryin to reinstall just the touchpad driver, then reinstalling everything it still wasn't working. So I packed everything up and made the trip back to Best Buy... and low and behold the guy turns it on and it works! Stupid computer... but at least it is magically fixed and good to go. (And if it happens again, the guy said just bring it back and have it exchanged... but so far so good.)
