What is the Toshiba model number for your laptop?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


C50/C55-A

Expert:  Josh replied 3 years ago.
It is possible that the cursor is locked.

Try pressing the F5 key and moving the mousepad. If the cursor does not work then try pressing FN key and F9 key together; now try moving it.
