Restart and keep pressing F8 key. Select safe mode option. IF it will boot into safe mode ok then go to start->all programs->Accessories->system tools->system restore. REstore computer back to previous date.
If this will not be possible.Restart and keep pressing F8 key and select safe mode with command prompt. In command prompt window type in "chkdsk /r " this will run checkdisk and restore missing files.
Please leave your feedback if issue was solved

Left mouse button works like the right betton. The right button works ok. With external mouse both buttons work fine

Hi there,
Go into Start > Control Panel > Mouse and check the macro settings for your left and right mouse buttons. If those are fine, then check the macro settings in the program you are using. Make sure your mouse isn't set to do the same thing for both clicks.

If that doesn't work, go to Samsung's website and download the latest drives for your touchpad. Reboot the machine and check it again.

Acer Aspire 1 ZG5 3? years old. Battery is not charging and probably needs to be replaced. However, when plugged into the wall, the XP loads up and the desktop appears. The remote mouse will not function...

Te battery probably does need to be replaced only if dont like having it plugged in-- and NO that has nothing to do with the mouse--be sure you have the latest DRIVER for the mouse and be sure the mouse is configured to your likeing in CONTROL PANEL---also the "PAD" dosen't need to be turned off, you can still use a mouse at the same time

Turns on, cannot open programs

Have you tried starting in SAFE MODE? If it's an overheating problem, then safe mode won't work either, but if you can start in safe mode, then it's not an overheating issue. If you can start in safe mode (press F5 as windows is starting and select safe mode without networking) and everything seems to work sort of normally - and expect the video resolution to be weird - then there is probably a program or driver that's corrupted and when it's loading, it's freezing your computer up. It could also be a virus.

You can see what's loading on startup by using a special program in Windows called msconfig. You can start this program from START|RUN (enter msconfig in the run dialog box) and from there you can see what's starting when you boot windows. You can selectively choose programs to start or not start when Windows boots. You can try to eliminate what's causing the problem.

If it's a driver problem, that can be a little more involved to sort out.

Bluetooth mouse won't work

whe u installed you mouse, you installed it from the cd from targus..right? so there is some settings in that program that you can change so when you turn on your laptop the bluetooth seeks for bluetooth items and it will find your mouse. I know its a little bit tricky but you can fix it, find the settings, change them and you dont have to buy a new mouse.

When you turn of your laptop the cooonnection betwen the item is lost, when you turn on you laptop i asume that your bluetooth is now passive, by making it active it starts immediately search for bluetooht items.

Good luck!

Frozen mouse with a touch pad laptop computer

Many laptops have a button, usually located right above the touchpad, that disables the touchpad.

And there may be drivers that need to be loaded for some touchpads to operate properly, in case you've reinstalled the OS.
