Check the hotkey for "select all" usually the controll or alt key , it may be stuck. you can gently pry up any key on the keyboard thats stuck with a butter knife. also might try shaking the keyboard upside down to clear anything lodged under the keys.

Tip

Unregistering DLLs


<p><b>Introduction:</b><br /> <p><b>What are DLL files?</b><br /> <p>DLLs are dynamically linked library files. DLL file contains a list of certain functions that can be used by various applications. Spool32.dll is a great example of how the things work: that file is used by various programs for print control within Windows 95 and Windows 98.<br /> <p><b>Why is it important to unregister malicious DLLs?</b><br /> <p>DLLs may contain information essential for a computer to function properly. Malicious programs may corrupt regular DLL files or they may install new DLLs instead of normal ones.<br /> <p>Deleting DLLs is a risky deal since it can affect computers performance and functionality of many applications. If a malicious DLL is somehow used by a regular application and the DLL file is removed, the application won't work normally even if the deleted DLL is not needed for a program to function. This is why you have to unregister DLLs before deleting them.<br /> <p><b>How to unregister malicious DLL files?</b><br /> <p><b>a) Open Command Prompt window</b><br />Click the "<b>Start</b>" button and select "<b>Run</b>" option. Type "<b>cmd</b>" into the "<b>Open</b>" field and click the "<b>OK</b>" button.<br /> <p><b>b) Unregister malicious DLL file<br /></b>Type "<b>regsvr32 /u filename.dll</b>" into the Comand Prompt window and click "<b>Enter</b>". "<b>Filename.dll</b>" should be the name of DLL file you want to unregister<br /> <p>

Stop mouse blinking when start open windows and over screen color resolution and size


make sure the mouse Ps 2 or the usb plug has a good seating if applicable or if its batteries that are good


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop


then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7


in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver


click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp


in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp



Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
You might need to upgrade your graphics card drivers

you might have to remove your graphics card to make sure the socket is clean
restart your computer the reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
if your computer came with a mother board disk the drivers could be on it

click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system

also you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes

check the event viewer by going to start>right click my computer>manage ... click on the left pane whre it says even viewer and click on applications.. look for a red ballon with a white x at the time when your application crashed and double click on it (there may be a few of those if it has crashed before.. and not all of them may be about the the application you're troubleshooting.. so read a little bit on the error and see if it's related with your problem and post the information you see there. or google the error code.

Dell C640 change touchpad settings


All,

I read on this a while then found these 2 packages and downloaded from DELL's site:

R49155.EXE
R46325.EXE

I installed the R49155.EXE and got 2 more tabs in the properties window for my mouse (Start + Control Panel + Mouse).

In the new "Device Settings" tab I can either totally disable the touchpad or in "Settings", just disable the "TAP to click"; which is the feature causing the cursor to bounce all over.

Also in the active application section of the launch bar, lower right next to clock, an ICON is now present and "TAP to click" is an option, which I can now easily inable/disable; after opening the ICON with a click.

As I understand it, R46325.EXE is the R49155.EXE on steroids, but did not need that.

Cheers!
