SB560 can not connect to HP Compaq 8510 laptop

Good afternoon, we just received new teacher laptops HP Compaq 8510 which are running Vista Business -2007.

The laptops do not have a serial port and the SmartBoard has a serial port and cable which connected to the older laptop.

is there an adapter that can be purchased?
also will the XP driver work with Vista OS?

My touchpad on my compaq laptop will move but will not move in the direction im moving it to instead it goes all over the screen

Try cleaning the touchpad off, and if that does not work talk to the place you bought it from about getting a new touchpad installed. However it could be a software issue, restart your laptop and run an antivirus scan.

My touchpad won't work on a compaq presario CO50, button is on, but on working?

Try a restart if that doesn't work, connect a usb mouse and go to the device manager and see if the drivers for the touchpad are installed.
If they aren't, go to and input your model number into the search box, there will be a place to download the touchpad drivers. Install those and your touchpad should be working.

Mousepad not working at all

You need to go to HP's website and download the touchpad drivers for your machine and operating system.  Install them and hopefully that will sort your problem.
On some newer laptops, there's a switch near the touchpad to turn it on and off.  Have a look for'll be obvious.

Older ArtZ II with ADB cable won't talk to my laptop

I'm thinking this is a Mac-only tablet. The ArtZ II for Windows came with an rs232 (old mouse) port at the end of the cable, in addition to a built-in spot where the power plug attaches.You didn't mention the power plug on yours, so the Mac version of the tablet must have the power routed in through the cable.

Short answer, the reason the light isn't coming on is because the tablet isn't receiving power. If you go get a cross-platform adapter card for plugging in Mac hardware on your HP, it *might* work.

Vista doesn't support many things.. you need to see if you can find a driver for it or revert back to XP, or get a new graphics tablet
