Tapping on gateway nv 53 trackpad not working


This just happened on my HP2730P. I always used the click on the touchpad, plus used the right click button at the bottom. Yesterday it just decided to stop working and went haywier...it started doing the selecting and dragging while I was moving the mouse around and my left click stopped working. Obviously my enable tap click was already on cuz I used it all the time.

My solution was disabling the buttons under the "buttons" tab. Then my mousepad tap started working again, I regained function in the scrollbar on the mousepad again, and if I need to right click I can use the point stick buttons right above the pad.

OR

Does it start working when you reboot? If so, try changing the "Touchpad Sensitivity" option :)

I can't delete ArcSoft software from my add/remove area


I'll tell you, but you're going to have to go the long way. Best method I'm aware of.

Plus I suggest you download CCleaner. CCleaner is a free registry cleaner. (Don't let the fact that it is free, dissuade you one bit! It's a better registry cleaner program than the PAID for one's are! )

After you delete a program there are 'tidbits' left behind. Fragmented files. These take up space also, and in essence are just junk. Like having partial pages torn out of a book. A registry cleaner rids you of them.

This is information about CCleaner from Wikipedia.org,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCleaner

After you view the information, and wish to download CCleaner, simply go to the right of the page, under the illustration, and click on the website address.
After you download CCleaner, come back if you wish, and I'll explain the easy way of how to run the program.

Long way of deleting a program, but assurance that it will be gone. (After using CCleaner also)

Windows XP Home running, Left-click on Start.
Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs, go up to Accessories, over and down to Windows Explorer, and click on it. (This isn't Internet Explorer, in case you are not familiar with Windows Explorer)

After Windows Explorer has loaded, go up to the top header. Left-click on Tools. Now on Folder Options in the drop down list. Finally Left-click on the View tab.

In the list, go down to where there is a yellow folder with - Hidden files and folders - to the right of it.

Below this you will see an empty circle, and to the right of it - Show hidden files and folders
Left-click once in this box.

Now go below to the right, and Left-click on Apply. Finally go down to the left, and click on OK.

After you do this a Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up. "Warning you are.........."
It's okay. Click on OK if present.
The reason this warning box comes up is that a user can delete necessary Windows files, IF, they do not know what they are doing.

I'm not going to guide you towards destructing your Windows operating system, rest assured. We are not going anywhere near Windows files. Just the ArcSoft program file that's about to hit the trashcan.

When you open Windows Explorer, the default setting is to automatically open your My Documents folder. You can see a negative sign ( - ) next to My Documents in the 'file tree' to the left, and the contents of your My Documents folder to the right.

I like to close the file tree for My Documents. Less clutter, and less chance of getting confused.

If you are of the same mind, go up to the - sign next to My Documents, and Left-click right on the - sign. It will turn into a + sign, and close that part of the file tree.

Now Left-click on the + sign next to,

1.My Computer
2.Then - Local Disk (C:)
3.Now scroll down to - Program Files

Scroll through these programs. See ArcSoft? Left-click on the ArcSoft name. The individual folders and files will appear on the right, in the large window.

Now double-click on a Folder. The folder will open, and display individual files. Right-click on a File, then in the drop down menu, Left-click on Delete.

You may not be able to delete the entire folder for ArcSoft, (Too large for Recycle Bin), but you can delete individual files, until the folders are empty 'husks'.
Then you can use the Back arrow at the upper left, and Right-click on the folder/s. Delete them.

You may come to a file that has an extension - .dll
You may not be able to delete this type of file. It's okay. After you shut down your computer, wait 1 minute, come back into Windows Explorer, and try it again.

Finally use CCleaner, and get rid of the file fragments.

I know this is long, and I apologize in advance. has worked for me to delete stubborn programs for years. (Norton, AOL, and others)

Has worked better than using the Uninstall feature, if the program comes with one, and any Uninstall option listed on the Internet for a program.

Have questions? I'm all ears.

Mousepad, right clicker problems on ibm thinkpad t41


you can try looking at the manufacturers website for a driver update to your trackpoint http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46258.html#mouse

Try turning off the tap to click option. This should resolve accidentally dragging things where they don't need to be.

Better option...if you're using this laptop at home just invest in a wireless mouse and set the laptop to disable the trackpoint when an external mouse is detected.

Asus mousepad stopped working after windows vista update


1.) Try reloading the touch pad drivers, should be on the CD that came with it or check the Asus website for new ones.
2.) Have you accidently disabled it? There is a Fn key combination to do this. Try Fn+F9. Also, there is an option to automatically disable the mouse pad when a USB mouse is plugged in. And of course, you can disable it from the Device Manager.
3.) Try going into :: Control Panel, find "Mouse", select the "Device Settings" tab, select the touchpad and click the "Settings" button). Check the settings in the "Tapping" section.

Context menu continually pops up - mostly when left mouse button is clicked sometimes when keyboard is used. Context menu key doesn't work.


I think the mouse setting is set to left handed and the right clicker is the main clicker and the left is the context menu key. Knowing this, you should follow these steps.
1. Go to "Control Panel"
2. Click "Printers and Other Hardware"
3. Click "Mouse"
4. Go to the "Buttons" tab and switch the setting to right handed

I had formated my e1501 lap and i installed the drivers found in dell site every thing is working fine but audio drivers dosen't function i had tried many driver found in web  nothing is correct so plz...


Hi dart_kasinat, From time to time windows needs a more direct method when installing sound device software, this sounds like one of those times.
You mentioned you installed the drivers found at Dell. Click on this Dell link & confirm this is the site you were at; http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_1501&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
(Sigmatel-driver)?
Try this. I need you to open windows device manager. Open windows control panel. Than open the System icon. In the System properties window click the hardware tab & than click the device manager button. Device manager will open. Scroll down to, Sound, video and game controller. (This may already be opened).
Look for a yellow upside-down pair shape with an explanation mark in it. Or you may find "Unknown PCI device".
Leave everything you have opened & go to your desktop. Create a folder there. To create a folder on your desktop right click once within a clear spot on the desktop. A pop-up window will open. Left click New & slide to & left click Folder. You now have a folder on your desktop. Right click once on the folder & slide to & left click Rename. Type the name "sound driver". Open the link above from dell & download the Sigmatel-driver, file name (R171789.exe) into your sound folder.
(This is the correct driver for your Dell E1501 notebook).
Open the sound driver folder. Double left click the file, R171789.exe Pay close attention to where it will want to uncompress its self. (It will create a new folder with all the needed files for your sound). Most likely it will create a folder named, (R171789). Now things get a little tricky.
Go back to the still opened device manager. Find the upside-down yellow pair with the ! point in it or the Unknown PCI device. Right click on it once. A pop-up window will open.
Left click once on “update driver”. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Left click on the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the R171789 folder in your system. Most likely it will be at, C:\ R171789. Do not open it, just high-light it by left clicking on it once. Than click OK.
Windows will search within the folder & install the correct driver software. If by some chance windows does not, repeat the above & open the R171789 folder. Find the “setup.exe” & click on it once. Than click, OK. Windows should install the driver. Close all opened windows & restart your system. Test you audio by running “Sigmatel icon within control panel”.

Good luck Sudhan!
Still have no sound? Just let me know here.
