Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

3 Answers

I have three problems with my hp pavilion dv5 notepook

Problem one:

The touchpad's left mouse botton often sticks and interacts with windows when i am not clicking on it. i have the touchpad currently disabled and i am using a mouse but it would be nice if anyone has an easy solution to this.

Problem two:

Above my keyboard, i have a touch mute and volume button. recently, the volume bar has been appearing in the middle of my moniter without me touching any of the volume controls. this started three weeks ago and then it occured once and since yesterday, it has happened twice. rebooting the computer takes care of the problem but this is obviously a time consuming and temporary mesure.

Problem three:

Over the last few days, my computer has overheated and shut down. I have had this computer a total of 40 days now. The laptop sits in a well aired area and the fan is working.

I am thinking of taking the computer to the shop but if i can fix this on my own, it would be better.

Thank you,
Joshua

I have the same laptop but I can't help with the touchpad issue (must be a hardware issue b/c mine works fine....try unstalling the driverm then reinstall the driver). The problem with the volume I can help you with: go to start and type in MSCONFIG and click on the startup tab, then uncheck the onscreen display for quick touch (the name may vary) item.....then reboot....now the volume will still change without showing you the annoying window (takes care of the random volume changes also & if the volume doesnt react, just tap the Stop button a couple times then change your volume)

now, the overheating and shutting down issue: go to HP's support site support.hp.com and type in the exact model number on the bottom of your laptop. now you need to go to the drivers and downloads section. there scroll down til you see BIOS. download and run this b/c it updates the laptop to where the fan inside will run faster and more often to compensate for the laptop running hot. helped mine out a lot.

Another thought (volume): uninstall just quicktouch in Programs and Features from the control panel. it gets rid of the annoying ticking when you adjust the volume....helped me out a bunch.

Ok - your unit is have a ECD502 error - device access error codes are looping and eventually your unit will die an unnatural death. The overheating is more than likely caused by a clogged heatsink unit - this will cause you overheat / thermal shutdown problems - seeing as you have other devices playing up EG mouse problems , audio problems means you chipset is slowly failing. You guessed it - nvidia chipset = if your unit is still under warranty get it in for a new m/board right now.

IS THERE ANY WAY TO LOOSEN THE POINT STICK SO IT WILL MOVE MORE FREELY


Why does it not have a touchpad? Maybe the touchpad driver is not installed or the touchpad has been disabled or is toggled off.

First off, you can always use a usb mouse instead of the point stick.

Click Start/Control Panel and look for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sure you don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on the button that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents the touchpad.

Try downloading and installing the touchpad driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "IBM Support" or "Lenovo Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

The touchpad is locked


On some models there is a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles the touchpad on or off.

On other models you simply tap twice in the upper left hand portion of the touchpad to toggle it on or off.

And then there are some models that you use keystrokes to toggle the touchpad. Normally you would Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key near the bottom left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The key that toggles the touchpad will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

Below is what I found in your user manual on the touchpad. It looks like your touchpad is controlled by software and there is no button or keystrokes that control the toggling.

Customizing the Touch Pad and Track Stick You can use the Mouse Properties window to disable the touch pad and track stick or adjust their settings.
  1. Open the Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Mouse.

  2. In the Mouse Properties window:

    • Click the Device Select tab to disable the touch pad and track stick.

    • Click the Pointer tab to adjust touch pad and track stick settings.

  3. Click OK to save the settings and close the window.
Below is a link to your manual

I can not disable touchpad of INSPIRON 1545 of DELL Computers There is no option for disabling touch pad in the MOUSE option of Control Panel


Go to the Control Panel. Under the 'Hardware and Sound' options, click 'Mouse'immortal4u.png

Since you have a Dell laptop, you'll have a special tab called 'Dell touchpad' in the window that pops up. Click on the touchpad picture in the window.

immortal4u_0.png
In the new window that appears, click 'Device Select'
immortal4u_1.png

Click on the 'Disable' radio button to disable the touchpad completely. If you want to disable the touchpad of your Dell laptop only when an external device like a mouse is attached, check the last option that says 'Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present'

immortal4u_2.png

That's it. You've disabled your laptop's touchpad for good. If you don't find an option to manage your touchpad in Mouse settings, you have to install Synaptics drivers from here. Similar options can be found in other laptops as well.

Good luck ! if your problem is solved don't forget to rate

My left mouse button on sony vaio vng-nw150j isn't working


Generally, if a mouse button quits working, it requires the replacement of the touchpad assembly.
Boot to the safe mode, see if the button works there, if it doesn't, then it is a failure of the switch in the button
