Aspire E1-571 keyboard not working


Sounds like one of the Accessibility/Ease of Access options got turned on by accident.

In the Control Panel section choose: Change how the keyboard works.
Look at the Filtericon1.png Keys option. Is it checked ON? If so, that's probably the cause of your problem.
I think if you uncheck Filtericon1.png Keys your keyboard will go back to normal.
Or try rebooting with an external usb keyboard.

Sony Vaio laptop (PCG-61317L) once I start browsing the internet, the screen freezes and the mouse cursor disappears from screen. When I don't browse the internet, it sometimes does the same thing


The reason this is happening is that as you are typing; you're resting some weight on the thin plastic above the touchpad...which then makes contact and registers a 'click'; thus moving your cursor around. Or you're brushing your thumb against it when hitting the space key.

Some laptops are more susceptible to this than others. Some more modern laptops come with a button to turn the touchpad off to solve this very problem.

The only thing you can do about this is to disable the touchpad through the touchpad driver (down by the clock, usually) and use a mouse instead. Depending on how you use your laptop, this will be more or less inconvenient- if your laptop never leaves the desk; disable the touchpad and use a mouse...no problem. If you go mobile a lot, you'll have to enable and disable the touchpad all the time.

The other thing you can do is adapt your typing style so you don't put any weight on anything but the key you're pressing. This is quite difficult and uncomfortable, and is not recommended for long sessions.

On laptops, sometimes your TouchPad is disabled for no apparent reason. To reactivate it, first try restarting your PC. If there's no good change just try:

We need the software driver and your mouse are installed

This trick works in Windows XP and Windows Vista.
  • Go to Control Panel> Mouse> Settings tab of the device
  • Click (or to disable)

Notes:
  • On some models, there is a keyboard shortcut to activate or deactivate the touchpad. For example, a ACER, just do Fn + F7.
  • You can click Reset device if neither of those solutions will work.
  • The official website provides synaptics drivers and software needed to run your TouchPad.
  • On the latest laptops, there is a special button to Enable/Disable the Touchpad.
  • HOPE THIS HELPS

While typing a story, the curser will jump backwards, and if I don;t realise it, I am typing between a previous word. Sometimes the cursur disappears from the page completely, and I have to use the mouse...


What's happening is that your finger(s) are touching/dragging across the laptop's TouchPad
while you're typing,
and thus the cursor's position in the document is being randomly reset/repositioned
while you're typing.
Solution: disable your Laptop's TouchPad, and use a mouse for cursor control.
Solution: tape a 3x5 index card over the Touchpad while you're typing.
Solution: type on a computer with a real keyboard, not the chiclet-type keyboard you (and I) are using.

My laptop touchpad is not working dell inspiron n5010


you will have to reinstall the drivers and the sofware in your Dell. I think since the touch pad is not working if you use the cursor keys and proceed to the control panel and try to restore the laptop, then if this will reset to an earlier date, then it will solve the issue.
try this out and check to reinstall drivers. hope this helps. Good day

Acer laptop keyboard & touchpad not working


If you can log in by pressing the f8 key in safe mode, then try the system restore. If it doesn't work, it could be very well be a hardware failure.

Eee 1005ha keyboard and touchpad suddenly freezes at random times


Mine does the same. I don't know what it is. It's not that it's frozen up because every program I'm running continues to run and when I press the power off button it brings up the choices to turn off restart or stand by.
