Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

Crazy Mouse My main mouse is a wee blue button in the keyboard, it goes where it likes I have no control. It does up and down fine but sideways it just carries on to the edge of the screen. I have been using a plug in mouse but that is still dragging to the right of the screen.I give it a good shake and it works like normal for a few minutes. It is making the laptop immpossible to use, and I have no clue what it could be!

    your laptop has one of those small blue like foam buttens in the center on the keyboard.. does it have a touch pad? the blue butter isnt really a mouse. its to stop the screen from getting smashed. yes it controls the mouse thats cus when its pushed down it stops the mouse conrtols. kinda like a key lock on your phone.

The j-mouse switch is faulty or dirty. The best thing you could do to solve this is replace the keyboard on the laptop. The HP Parts Store should have replacement keyboards that you could order or search on eBay.

How do I turn on my touch pad on an Asus lap top?


Please try the Fn+F6 or Fn+F8 key combinations. If you look at the Function keys in the keyboard, they will have symbols on them in Blue color, the same color as the Fn key. Find the symbol that resembles a touchpad like a mouse/box with finger , then hold down the Fn key and press that Function key, ie, F6 or F7 or F8. This will enable/disable the touchpad.

Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

No mouse, how do i do the things like highlight that i used to right click with


Does the laptop have a touchpad (usually centered on the keyboard below the space bar) with two buttons above it? Then drag your finger across the selection to highlight it. Then click the right button.

It may take some practice. I usually end up getting a finger to register as moving to a new point on the screen when I try to move up to the buttons.

If you are still more comfortable with a mouse, get a USB corded or wireless mouse. Connect the mouse to a free port and use as you normally do. (Wireless mice can be a little tricky when the batteries run down or the receiver and mouse lose their connection.) If you have limited ports, a USB hub will usually be fine for connecting a mouse.

I hope this helps.

(Note: some older laptops need the touchpad disabled to avoid confusion. With Windows, Start > Control Panel > Hardware > Device Manager)

Screen the wrong way


See if there are any graphics icons in the system tray down by the clock. It would be ATI or nVidia or Intel, probably. If you can go into the properties of those and look for a screen rotation setting, that will get you back to normal if you put it on zero degrees or disable or whatever it has. If there aren't any of those icons in the system tray, you can probably look in the Control Panel, or in the Settings tab of Display Properties. To get to that last one, right-click on the desktop and hit Properties, then click over to the Settings tab. There may be an Advanced button towards the bottom of that, and it will launch some crazy graphics company interface where you can look for rotation settings.

Need to reset display settings


Hi

Take a look at the keyboard and find the FN button on the bottom left. (The letters FN are in blue)

Now look at the F keys at the top of keyboard and find one that has either a couple of monitor symbols or the letters CRT/LCD - again in blue

Holding down the FN key and press the other key, this should change screens between the external and internal monitors. Don't expect an instant change - it sometimes takes a couple of seconds to do the job.

If that does not work then attach another external monitor, right click on the screen and select properties. Now select the far right tab (settings) and then go to Advanced tab and then select Monitor

Here you should be able to change screens back to the LCD of the laptop

I want to deactivate the ''blue button''?


Go to Control Panel and select "mouse". Select OK on the Dell Touchpad Tab. Click Device Select and disable the pointer stick. That worked for me. Good luck.
