Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Cannot double click on my mouse pad to make a selection.

I went to the control panel and lowered the speed of the mouse clicker but i think that seems to only affect the right and left buttons on the pad and not the pad itself.

thanks

This tends to happen in vista due to some driver compatibility issues and has nothing to do with your click speed. Download and install the latest driver and I am positive that it would resolve the issue.

How to make a optical mouse work better?


Your mouse is an important part of your computer system, and when that mouse has problems it is important to get them resolved as quickly as possible.


There are a number of things that can cause a mouse pointer to behave erratically, and it is important to work through each of those possible causes one by one.


Change the batteries if you are using a wireless mouse.

The batteries in a wireless mouse will generally last a long time, especially if you use rechargeable batteries.


But once the battery power begins to decline, the batteries will lose power very rapidly.

If you are using a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to stutter and jump, chances are that changing the batteries will resolve the issue.


Move the wireless transmitter to another USB port.

Problems with the wireless transmitter can cause the mouse pointer to stutter and jump. Moving the transmitter to another port will often resolve this issue.


Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on your computer's desktop, and choose "Properties" from the menu.

Click on the "Hardware" tab, and click the "Device Manager" button.


Navigate to the mouse entry in the list of hardware devices, right-click and choose "Update Driver" from the menu.

Allow your operating system to search for and install the most recent driver for your model mouse.


Clean the mouse surface thoroughly if you are not using a mouse pad.

If you are using a mouse pad, shake any dust or dirt off of it to make sure the surface is perfectly smooth.


Any imperfections in the surface could cause the mouse pointer to behave erratically.

To clean the mouse surface, hold a clean cloth over the opening of a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and soak the cloth.


Then, go over the entire surface with the alcohol-soaked cloth and allow the surface to dry before attempting to use the mouse again.


Click on the "Start" button, and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.

Double-click the "Mouse" icon, and click the "Mouse Pointer" tab.


Adjust the speed of the mouse.

If the mouse speed is set too fast, it can cause the mouse pointer to stutter or hiccup.


It may take a few tries to get the speed just right, so just move the slider and test each new setting


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7


in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar


Hope this helps

My hp pavillion dv6 track pad will not double click. please help


If you can right click, you can select all the double-click options, like Open. Or, click and hit Enter on the keyboard.

However, the double-click may have been inadvertently set to fast. Go into Control Panel and change the click speed in Mouse settings.

My cursor moves as i type what can i do


You seem to be brushing against the touch pad while you're typing. You need to adjust the sensitivity of that touch pad:
Click on the "Start" icon in the lower left corner of the screen. Select "Control Panel." Next select "Mouse" under "Hardware and Sound." You can also left-click the touchpad while the cursor is anywhere on the desktop. From that screen, choose "Mouse Pointers." Select the "Buttons" tab at the top of the dialog box that opens. This shows the type of touchpad device installed on your laptop. Set the touchpad for right or left-handed use from this dialog box. You can adjust the double click speed of your computer as well. When you finish making any changes, click "Apply." Pick the "Device Settings" tab from the dialog box now. You can see the touchpad for your Vista machine highlighted on this screen. Select "Settings." Read the information provided in the next dialog box. It gives you options for tapping your touchpad, using the buttons, scrolling, pointer motion and sensitivity. Make any changes you want from the various topics. When you make a change, click "Apply." Click "OK" when you finish making all your changes. Do some work on your computer for a while. If the touchpad is still too sensitive, return to the "Mouse" menu and continue to adjust the settings until you get them just the way you want them.

Mouse will randomly double click or have to click several times to work


Please check whether there are any buttons on the side of the mouse you may be clicking these at the same time as you are single clicking.

You could also try going into Control Panel --> Mouse
Try Slowing down the double click speed
If that doesn't work try speeding it up

Another problem with a laser mouse is it jumps around the screen randomly if there is a pattern on your mouse mat or desk, or if either are too shiny or even glass as the laser reflects incorrectly on these type of surfaces.
