have you reinstalled windows, or done any major updates to the operating system?

You could perhaps ask Toshiba what touchpad is installed, and download the drivers, and reinstall them.

Check control panel > mouse and see if there are any settings in there? Perhaps a friend, co-worker, or family member used the laptop, and stuggled with that neat scrolling feature, and simply turned it off?

this may be of help to you. Its likely that your touch pad is a Synaptics one...
