Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

P200-RT3 Toshiba Note Book - Windows Vista

Hello,

I had been using the laptop last evening and it was working fine. I think I may have disabled the touchpad.....? It will move around and point but does not open anything up when I prompt it too, so then I wasn't able to close the system down properly either. Is there a keyboard function I may have keyed in that would have done this? The manual is of course 'on the sytem' & I can't get at it to troubleshoot.

Thank you very much for your time.
Carla

Yes, there is a way to shut down without touchpad. Look to see if you have a key on bottom left corner of keypad that looks like a little MS Windows icon (kinda like a 4-piece "crooked flag"). If you do, you are in luck. Press that key ONCE and let go and the start menu will "expand" and show you programs, settings and SHUT DOWN. Now just hit the UP arrow key (on bottom right side of keyboard) and the menu moves up one notch, to SHUT DOWN. No press ENTER and the shut down menu appears Move the arrow key again, until it says "SHUT DOWN and press ENTER again. That is it.

If you have no windows key (many laptops don't) then try pressing ALT and F keys. Sometimes this works. If it does raise the menu, then 5the instructions are the same thereafter (arrows and enter).

Another way to shut down is press CTR ALT and DEL (DELETE) together, all three keys simultaneously (but only ONE time). Then wait a second. This brings up a process window that has tabs for shut down (arrows and enter will work there too).

Now, when you restart, look for an icon in bottom right hand corner for "synaptics touch pad". or some other brand touch pad. There you can change your touchpad settings back to "tapping" for mouse clicking. You can also allow "click and drag" but I think that is dangerous, since you can accidentally "bury" files and folders.

Hit the solved/Fix Ya key on the way out. :)

Toshiba satelite p200-ab1 formatted drive which previously had windows vista and now want to load windows xp but will not recognize a drive to load to. if I try nto reload vista it will take but why not...


Before you attempt it, make a couple of changes in the BIOS to hopefully work around a few problems that might crop up.
At reboot, tap the F2 key to enter setup that will allow you to make a change in the BIOS.
Disable caching module before you change the drive sata settings.
Set the hard drive to "ATA compatible."
