I need a mouse!!!

Filed under: microsoft,technology — saraalag @ 10:25 am


Last night, I got a call from a friend screaming that she needed a mouse!!! Since I don’t have a pet shop, I assumed she was after a computer mouse!! Her reason being ‘My mousepad just stopped working…..I didn’t do anything!!”. Failing to believe her, I had a look at her laptop and it only took me a second to figure out the problem and the solution.

In most laptops, one of the function keys(F9 in a Toshiba R400) is used to enable/disable the laptop’s touchpad.

A simple key press of ‘Fn + F9’ fixed her laptop and earned me a delicious hot chocolate 🙂

If your mousepad happens to stop working, do give this a try!
