Last evening I found on my desk top a BIOS Launcher from Toshiba. I guess it has been sitting there from the other day. It says the following.
Boot CD-ROM Installation Method Create CD-ROM Now
If your Toshiba PC is equipped with a bootable CD-ROM device (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-RW, DVD-Multi, etc.), and you have access to a CD writer (burner, either installed in your Toshiba PC or in another PC), you can create a bootable BIOS installation CD-ROM using the ISO CD image, sc0yv160.iso, provided in this distribution.
If you have CD burning software on your computer (Windows Vista and 7 have it by default), chances are good it has set itself up as the default handler for ISO CD-ROM images. If this is the case, the link above, and the option to create the bootable CD-ROM from the BIOS Launcher, will launch your CD burning software, ready to burn the ISO image to CD. If your software hasn't set itself up as the default handler for ISO images, we'll recognize that fact, and let you know.
Once you create the bootable CD-ROM, simply boot your computer from the resulting CD. To boot from CD, you can press the F12 key when prompted, or you can use HWSetup to change the boot priority so the CD drive boots before the HDD.
I created the disk then got a message saying it may not have recreated correctly, or something to that effect. So I am afraid to use it to boot my laptop for fear I create an even bigger problem.
If this doesn't help and we cant resolve the problem I am a going to give up. I will go after Toshiba and try to make them solve the problem at no cost to me. It was there tech that disabled the touchpad in the first place. Had I known then, what I know now about the laptop, I would not have gone along with the recommendation to disable the touchpad in the first place. My previous Dell laptop didn't have the sensitivity issue. Never had a problem with the touchpad on it.
Thank you for all your help.
