That happened to me recently on my laptop Scatts. Tried everything like you but nothing worked. Turned out I'd accidentally locked the touchpad. To unlock it, it wasn't in the control panel - but in a separate bit called Packard Bell Device Fast Lane.  It was reached through the icon on the taskbar. Is there anything there on your taskbar?

 

Or try pressing F6 or Fn+F6 to unlock the touchpad?

Glad it's sorted though according to my Google searches for Toshiba laptops, F6 controls the brightness of the screen and F9 the touchpad.
