Question about Gateway 310X PC Desktop

1 Answer

At times the pc begins a continuous loop of stars (*) across the page nonstop.

Without me even touching the mouse, the pc itself starts putting stars across any word document I have open or even in the area for my AOL password and I cannot continue my word document or even sign on to the internet because this is what I see:

Go grab a new keyboard or your neighbors and see if this happens - most of the time it will be a stuck key or dirty contact on the keyboard. They range from 10 to 100 dollars so i would test first and see if makes a difference before you buy.

Frozen mouse with a touch pad laptop computer


Check your drivers. Go into the device manager (start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager>human interface device) . If it shows a big yellow question mark, than it is a driver problem.

I would suggest that you either install or download the latest drivers for the mouse, and you can do this even without checking for a hardware conflict as stated above.

You can also access the control panel and trouble shoot your mouse through the mouse icon.

Even sometimes this may not work.....

I had an IBM brand optical mouse that continually plague me with problems until I gave it away with a computer that I built. The person who has it is still have occasionally issues with the mouse even with the proper drivers installed. I believe that it is a connection issue because sometimes the mouse will start working when you jiggle the male USB connection.

PHP Troubleshooting


Most often the problem is caused by loops in your PHP. One common mistake is to forget to actually ++ add to the counter at the end of a loop, so your loop will continue to run forever. Another common mistake is that, you do add to the counter, but then accidently overwrite it again at the start of the next loop, so you never gain any ground.
Depending on what your loops is doing, this can cause your script to continue to output the same information over and over again (continuing to make the page longer and longer and longer) or it can keep processing the same information over and over without outputting anything giving it the appearance of a page that is trying to load but is lagging.

One way to help you spot this is to echo () the current counter number (or other useful information) at the beginning of each cycle. This way you might get a better idea of where the loop is tripping up.

If you're not using loops, you may want to double check that any HTML or JAVA you are using on your page isn't causing the problem, and that any included pages are without error.

A35-S159 keyboard problem


Try this first, Make sure the mouse cursor is further down the page or completely off the page you are typing on. Whith the problems of static electricity or stray energy if you are typing and go past where the mouse cursor is and stray voltage is present then the lightest touch of the glide pad or mouse could be interpreted as a click and your text will begin where the mouse cursor is.

Moving cursor.


well there is a few things that could possibly be happening. if it is a touch pad or a wireless mouse something like a cell phone sitting close enough to them could be causing some interference. the second one is that you could possibly have the mouse keys turned on where you can control the mouse with the keyboard.

"sticky" mouse on compaq laptop


Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.

To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.

Mouse irradic Clicking


Check to make sure that the right hand mouse key is not stuck down. When you press it down, does it feel the same as the Left Hand key? Could be caused by a piece of foreign material underneath/beside the key, or by something sticky getting down around the key. Try to clean the area under and around the key and make sure the key is not binding in the cover. It could be that there is a failure of the key, itself. You might want to try connecting another mouse (most computers have a connection for this), disconnecting the trackpad/mouse that is on the notebook. This should tell you if it is a problem with the trackpad/mouse, or something deeper.
Hope this solves your problem.
