Question about BenQ Joybook 5100U Notebook

1 Answer

Can't start up the laptop as Media test failure

I enter the BIOS already but the BIOS of BenQ Joybook 5100U is very simple and doesn't have any option to automatically find HDD and/or any other functions for resetting as other brands/models. Thank you

If you can access the motherboard look for 'JBAT1' and if located put jumper on pins 2-3 then back to 1-2, although i'm not 100% sure if your notebook board is similair to that of an ATX board. If you are able this will delete any saved bios entries of HDD etc.

Im having toshiba satellite s6959 laptop its touchpad scroll is not working i checked for driver in toshiba website but i cant find it out

Click Here for all drivers available for the 5100U direct from BenQ Main Website.

It is the 9th one listed, Synaptics Touchpad.

I reccommend downloading all the drivers listed, and burn them to a cd for future needs.

Good Luck

I have a 1 1/2 yr old Dell 1525 and the scroll just stopped working, everything else is working fine, what can I do? I've already done a diagnostics and that didn't fix it.

You need to enable the scroll option from the control panel

Open control panel , Mouse properties then check for the scroll option is enable or not

You may have to go back into the bios and see if there is an option to automatically find HDD, or you may have to manually enter them in the Standard Bios Settings. It may be that the old HDD are still in the bios's recognised setup.
