After I had my harddrive reinstalled I began having problems with my touchpad. I have tried all the suggestions to fix it but nothing works. I even purchased a new wireless mouse from Radio Shack which I cannot install on my computer...Radio Shack can install it on their computer with Vista on it. I'll try another one.
When I am on a web page, sometimes it quits responding and I have to start Task Manager. I figured my RAM memory is too full and too many things are starting up at start up . Where can I find a list of programs that were installed on my computer with the disc that is supposed to start up when I turn on the computer? I did get rid of several programs that don't need to be on the computer. I can't seem to fix this problem. Any suggestions? I can't get any more RAM memory. I have a Toshiba Satellite A135-4727. HELP!!! I am so frustrated.
Thank you for taking time to respond to my delima.
Sounds like your drivers are missing or wrong due to the new HD installation. (Been there, done that.) You can spend hours trying to fix this by loading individual drivers with no success. If your system did not come with a system recover disc, contact Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777 and order one. It is NOT available from them on-line (right... very stupid). The disc will cost you $19.95 for 5 day delivery and $24.95 for 2 day delivery. This disc will have ALL the correct drivers for your system and, once you have installed it, you can check for any updates for each specific driver.

try and reduce the sensitivity of the cursor go to control panel then to mouse then on the tab select pointer options and reduce the speed if that dosent wotk get a usb mouse and uninstall the driver for the touchpad/synaptics and try to reinstall it.
If you are having trouble with the touchpad this coudl be a software or hardware problem. The first thing I would try is connnect an external mouse to the system to seee if this works. If it does not then you are looking at a driver and/or a Windows problem. At this point I woould download the drivers for the touchpad from the computers driver page. If this does not fix the problem you may need to reinstall Windows.
If the mouse works then I would try to reinstall the drive. After trying the driver you still have trouble then you will need to have the touchpad replaced. Normally this it replaced in the whole top shell piece sometimes refered to as the palm rest. You might also check with your computer manufacture as you might be in warranty and they can replace the part for you.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
If possible try to connect a USB mouse and use that to enable the touchpad... After that reinstall the drivers for the touchpad the issue should be fixed... Even if you still have the issue then call the computer manufacturer.
If you dont get a USB mouse.. Then turn on the computer get into safe modem by tapping F8... Try to check in safe mode whether the touchpad is working.. If its working reinstall the drivers the issue will be fixed
Hello, this type of problem is common and arises due to improper device driver action or when the driver gets corrupt. In order to fix this you may need to reinstall the touchpad driver. Since you have a Compaq laptop, the driver is located in a folder named SWSetup in the C:\ drive of your computer. After you reinstall the software and restart the laptop, you will need to reconfigure your touchpad device. To configure the touchpad open the control panel,and go to mouse under Hardware & Sound option. There you can configure the pointer speed, buttons, horizontal and vertical scrolling, inertial movement, etc. according to your wish.
Let me know that the problem is fixed or not. We are always there for your help.
First thing to try to uinstall and reinstall the software for your touchpad. Go to Acer and get the latest drivers and or software. Sometimes, just removing the driver and letting windows find it again in device manager is enough to fix it. hopes this helps.
Normally though. keyboard and touchpad are seperate entities. which made me think of the motherboard as that is the only constant between the 2 but, if your touchpad is buggy maybe it is causing issues elsewhere.
