    I have had problems with this laptop since it was purchased in July 2008. Since then I have also noticed that the volume control doesn't work properly and is obviously faulty as it doesn't respond appropriately. The main problem I have, this one being the most annoying and frustrating, is that when I am typing any kind of document, be it email, word document, or simply writing on a website forum, the cursor repeatedly jumps back in the text. Even whilst I am typing this message to you the cursor has jumped back at least 6 times and I have had to go back and correct what has been typed. Its driving me mad!! Can anyone help please? I have read somewhere that you can disable 'tapping' in the mouse properties but I don't seem to have this option on my machine.

Download spybot from www.spybot.org, install it, download updates, scan (takes 20 minutes or so), click 'fix selected problems', click the button that says immunize, then Immunize.
reboot
should be fixed

hope this helps

Pen drive access denied


USB ports and devices make connecting to another computing device convenient.
USB technology has been around since 1996, and is a feature found on most modern computing devices.
If your device is denied access to one of its USB features, do some troubleshooting to isolate and resolve the problem.
Viruses
Some computers come with a security feature that automatically denies access to a USB device, such as a flash drive, if harmful content is detected.
Installing an anti-virus software application and regularly scanning the computer and any connected USB devices can help you avoid experiencing denied access to a USB device.
Avoid opening USB flash drive files that you cannot identify or do not recognize, as these types of files are how viruses find their way onto unprotected computers.

Incompatibility

Inserting an incompatible device into your computer's USB port can also cause you to be denied access to your device's USB features.
For instance, if your computer supports USB 1.0 technology and you insert a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connector, the computer can experience interfacing problems that may cause a "USB access denied" prompt or situation.
If other USB devices begin to malfunction after inserting an incompatible USB cable into your computer, turning the computer off and back on again may resolve the situation.



Formatting
USB flash drives, also known as pen or thumb drives, are among the most common types of USB devices used in conjunction with computers.
Most USB flash drives are formatted using one of three types of formatting methods: FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS.
If you've formatted a USB flash drive using one method, used it on the computer and then reformatted the drive using another method, you can be denied access to the flash drive through the computer's USB port.
Wiping the flash drive clean and reformatting it again can resolve this type of problem.

Considerations

Many computer accessories, including printers and pointing devices, connect through the machine's USB ports and can interface interchangeably with multiple computing devices.
This feature increases the risks of picking up viruses and experiencing unauthorized reformatting. Limiting the amount of computers your USB devices accesses can help you avoid these situations.
Damaged USB cables can also make it impossible to access USB devices when they are connected to your computer.
USB cable damage usually occurs at the points where the cable and its connectors meet. Replace any damaged USB cables.
You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer.
Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer Administrator you must have full control.
Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
Click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

Access denied to my western digital external hard drive from my new laptop


I am having the same problem..computer is showing that its there but says its 'unaccessable'...access denied. a few days ago, my computer got turned off due to a power outage. when I turned it back on, the mybook was deleting itself.....It worried me, and it wasn't showing up on my computer for a little bit. eventually it was back on and had backed itself up. Now again after another power outage, it deleted itself and now its just at a stage where its saying access denied. sorry, I don't have a solution, I'm just like you, looking for answers. I had so much data on this, please don't tell me that I've lost it!

The hard disk in drive D: is not accessible


I recently had this problem. Whenever I clicked on any of the drives a window appeared with warning which said drive not accessible. Access is denied. Previously I thought that it is a virus which has edited my registry and is not allowing me to enter or even view my content. So I formatted the whole system but that didn't help. Now I am sharing this with you.
  1. Open My Computer. Goto Tools>Options. Goto View Tab Pane. Uncheck the last Option in the Advanced Setting which says Use simple file sharing(Recommended). Apply the setting.
  2. Open the properties window of the drive you are unable to access.Goto Security tab pane.
  3. Goto Advanced.
  4. Now click on the Owner tab pane.
  5. It's very rare that the ownership of the drive changes. But it happens once in a while.
  6. So if you are the user say Admin then select Admin(ComputerName\Administrator).
  7. Click on the box which says Replace owner on subcontainers and objects and click over Ok.
  8. Apply the changes.
  9. Now you should be able to access the drive.
