    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.

Lifebook. Why can't I type on login page?

1. Press the Fn key a few times, it may be stuck.
2. Press the Fn key + the number lock key, your keyboard may be set as a number pad.
3. If you have access to a USB keyboard (e.g. from a desktop) then plug that in and see if it works.

My acer laptop does not pick up any wireless networks. It was working fine the other day, my wireless button is on. When i click on the icon with the two computers and a red x it says connection status:...

You should first make the auto connect feature off by these steps
control panel->network and sharing center ->manage wireless networks->locate the profile ->uncheck the check box for Connect Automatically when this network is in range. then click ok.
It will remember the security key and you again start the auto connect feature
by going to
start->control panel->network and internet->network and sharing center then select connect
right click the undesired network and select properties. then select connect automatically.

When i try to open my c drive in a dell inspiron laptop computer, it gives an error message that access denied. what might be the problem?

It isn't a problem it is for the safety of the Operating System. Access is usually denied because you are not an "Administrator".

C Drive Access Denied and The Parameter is Incorrect

I found this on a Vista Forum: Re: Access to C Drive
I figured it out -- you have to take ownership of the drive away from
the "TRusted Installer" account, which can be used only by Windows, and
assign it to one of your administrator accounts. AVG did this! So now your C: drive can be accessed by "Trusted Installer" and not you. You are an Administrator so you need to go to permissions and assign the C: drive to you and NOT the "Trusted Installer"

it sounds like you do not have account rights and since this is a firm laptop you may not be authorized to do with your domain login. Any changes made would effect the local hardware info and not your domain permissions which might be the root cause of the issue. Is anyone else in your group having the same issue? If so it would be a domain issue and not something able to be handled outside your firm.

You can verify this by try trying this see if you can go to a dos (command 'cmd' prompt) from start>run>typing in cmd and clik on 'ok'
the type net user and press enter
take a name like administrator if listed or another name (the point of that is to see what names are listed) and type
net user {whatever name without the brackets of course} *
you will be prompted for a password twice
then restart the pc and when you come to the login change the domain to the local pc and use the login name and password you just selected once there see if you can access any of the drives. If so then the issue is with your domain permissions or scripts and not your system or id.

Type in password get message access denied or incorrect passwork and reboots

I was given an old computer years ago that was password protected I was told to pull the battery out for 10 sec. then reinstall it. It cleared the pass word protection. Note: pull the power cord push the start button to drain any power from the system, ground your self to protect the computer of any static electricity first.
