Lost th arrow on dell laptop


If the arrow does not appear, it usually means that Windows did not detect a mouse. A quick and easy way to test this is to plug in a USB mouse from a desktop computer. If your arrow returns, that confirms Windows does not see your mouse. If this *is* the case, then go into the BIOS screen (F2? when booting) and look through the menus to make sure mouse is enabled. Also make sure to look for an option under "Dock" that says something like disable mouse when docked. If plugging in a USB mouse does not make the pointer re-appear, then you may have windows problems. I'd try easy things first, like re-installing the mouse driver for your laptop. This especially if you have a fancy driver for multi-finger gestures 8-). While you work on this, try the Tab and ALT-Tab keys to move the focus around on your desktop. The Start menu also springs up with the Windows key. Space and Enter are like clicking. ALT-Enter like right-clicking.

I bought this laptop 2 1/2 years ago. The laptop did it jobs very well until 2 weeks ago... It happened randomly, the whole system is getting to freezed states instantly. I can't move my mouse, nor the...


Well firstly, you know apart from viruses,a fair few sites hold malicious code even in video or image form so thats your freezing problem ,most probably,your best bet would be to have it looked at if you cannot manage it further.Manufacturer will have diagnostic equipment /cables/analyzers etc.
At a guess it sounds like a motherboard component.chip failure perhaps which is not necessarily non-user servicable--maybe try a better search for manufacturers site pdf for for you model.
Linux distros are free and auto install ,if you have not luck with windows bang up a linix distro and see what their diagnostics tell you on boot up,things may become clearer-----good luck

Mouse does not nove. Device manager shows no mouse present. What is wrong


Go into the BIOS. When you first turn on the laptop there will be an option to go into the BIOS. Should be like F1, F2, something like that.

After you go into the BIOS go ahead and reset the BIOS to factory defaults, it will tell you what key to press to do that. After that let the laptop go back into windows. Check the device manager and see if the mouse shows up. If it doesn't then that means the ribbon cable for the mouse pad might be loose underneath it where it connects to the motherboard.

If you can get to that then take it out and the reseat it. If you go thru my steps and you notice that the mouse is recognized but not moving. Hold down the Fn key and then as your doing that press the key that has the mouse icon on it, that should get the mouse cursor to move.

I have hp dv4-1465dx, how to reset bios without having OS


Hello,

Was Windows 7 the operating system that came with

your System? If not, What I would advise you to do

is this:

Check HP website to find out if your Laptop supports

Windows 7.

If it doesn't, then I would advise you to

PLEASE change it back to the operating system

that came with your system, or better still, the

operating system that it supports.

The reason is because that is exactly what I faced

two weeks ago....

I changed the operating system for my PC to

Windows 7 ( Even though it doesn't support it)...it

worked fine for a while, then later it started to develop

faults after a while...like stuttering, mouse pointer

moving round the screen, graphics displaying

improperly...etc.

I first thought it wasn't a big deal, so I fixed it by

repairing the drivers, and it worked fine once again...

After using that same crack that you said you used,

I started getting "Multiple Hardware Error"!

It would just Power on, Show HP Logo, Show

Wireless LAN indicator Led ON, and It will freeze

there. I could not even enter the BIOS.

In short ....Now as I'm typing, the system is

with HP Service Centre for they have to change the

Mainboard Outrightly!

So PLEASE, if your system was not specified

Windows 7, use the Operating Systems that it

supports.

Then go to HP Website and download the original

BIOS settngs for your Laptop then repair your

system with it.

But if it is the one that came with it, then let me know

so as to tell you some quick fixes.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck and thanks for using fixya!

Mouse and keyboard freeze.


its a very common hardware fault with these laptops, can you open setup or bios? that is opened right when the power is turned on the and screen says press F2 to enter bios or setup, if you can't enter bios then you have a faulty motherboard, usb ports don't work either? (usb keyboard and mouse don't work?)
