IMight have been due to Virus attack and there is no proper updated antivirus upgradation in the laptop.

Or the problem is related with power supply where there will be loose contacts or the laptop is configured in sleep mode when it was idle for morethan a fixed time.

Better check up and show to the nearest authorized delaer to set the problem solved. If the laptop is under warranty, please ask them to replace with the latest one, which the dealer will agree to do the same at free of cost.

Laptop touchpad not working


Dear John,

Although you did not mention your laptop model, Medion laptops use a combination of the 'Fn' key with one of the function keys on the top part of your keyboard to enable/disable the touchpad, that can be F3 or F6 or F8. So, try pressing the 'Fn' key and, while keeping it pressed, press also the F3 key and release them. Check if the touchpad now works. If it does not, try the same operation with 'Fn' plus the F6 keys or 'Fn with the F8 keys.

If none of these combinations works for you, maybe you will need to download and re-install the driver for your touchpad, from the Medion web site. go to www.medion.com site, select your country or region and then look for the drivers page for your laptop model. Select the driver for the touchpad offered there, download and install it in your machine.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Miguel L. Martins

Touchpad not active


Locate the "Fn" key in the lower right or left corner of the laptop keyboard.

The "Fn" key typically has different colored text on it or the key itself is a different color.


Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.


The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.


Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key simultaneously to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.


Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works.

Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.


hope this helps

Acer 4930g tochpad is not working.Please help.


Hi,

I understand the Touchpad is not working on the computer. Before any troubleshooting steps please make sure the touchpad is active on the computer. Please follow the steps below:
1. Press Fn+F7 keyand try to access the touchpad
2. If the computer do not have any combination key then look for a touchpad key (the button should have a picture of a hand with finger pointing to touchpad), click it (It should be on top of the touchpad or near to the Power button in some computers.
The above steps should take care of the issue, if not, please follow the steps below:

Click Start Menu> All Programs> Acer eRecovery management> Restore> Restore Application & Drivers> Contents> Select Touchpad or Synaptic and install it.
If still the issue persists, then follow the below mentioned steps:

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key
& keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction.
NOTE: This will erase all the data on the computer.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

It stopped working what to do to start it


1. The touchpad and external mouse drivers should be able to work together. Just make sure that you have the touchpad enabled. To see if you have the touchpad enabled, hold the Fn key and press F9. The combination Fn-F9 locks and unlocks the touchpad. If pressing Fn-F9 once, twice, thrice does not seem to lock/unlock your touchpad.. then you might not have the Toshiba hotkeys working or enabled. So lets forget it and try step 2. If Fn-F9 solved your problem.. there you go !

Arrow The way it works is you have to keep holding Fn key and have to hit F9 once, that should lock the touchpad. Again if you keep holding Fn and hit F9 again, that should unlock it and so on..

2. Sometimes this solves the problem.. Do a power cycle of your computer.. i.e., unplug the AC.. take the battery out.. Plug the AC back in and try to turn computer ON with AC alone (i.e, leave the battery out and just start computer with AC power).. Once windows loads up and everything is fine, then turn system off. Unplug AC.. put battery back in.. Plug AC back in and restart computer.. All should be working now.. if not, keep reading..

3. Click on START>go to RUN>type devmgmt.msc

4. Now in the Device Manager, click on the + sign next to Mice and other pointing devices. Right click on each device listed under "Mice and other pointing devices" and Uninstall ALL the MOUSE Devices you see listed there..

attention Make sure you ONLY uninstall the Mouse devices and not ALL devices from Device Manager like your CD, Display etc.. Just uninstall the devices listed under Mice and Other pointing devices after you have clicked on the + sign to the left of it..

5.Install Drivers

6. In the page that came up saying Downloads ( All operating systems, All categories ), at the top drop the list Filter by Operating System and select Windows XP (I am assuming you have XP.. if you have another OS, select that instead).. then on the right of it, drop the list Filter by Category and select Touchpad.. then click on the button "Apply Filters"..

7. Now you just see two drivers listed..

09-30-2004 Toshiba Utility
Touchpad Toshiba Touchpad Enable/Disable Utility for Windows XP (v1.27.0.3; 09-24-2004; 5.34M)

06-15-2004 Driver
Touchpad Alps Touchpad Driver for Windows XP/2000 (v6.0.303.5; 05-26-2004; 2.43M)

Click on the Download link on the right.. Save them to your computer somewhere in a folder or desktop, where you can remember.. After the files are downloaded, double-click on the file.. Unzip.. then Run.. and it will install the driver..

8. Restart your computer.. Now the Touchpad should be working fine.. Try Fn-F9 combination.. i.e, keep holding Fn key and tap F9 once, twice to see if it locks/unlocks the touchpad..

My system only boots as far as the initial bios screen where it says Press F1 or Delete for setup and just hangs there. The keyboard indicators light up, but it will not boot any further.


Good Morning!

and wish you a Happy New Year2011.

1. Visual checkup of the Motherboard: See for any defective capacitors on the board near Processor. A defective capacitor will have a tapered surface and a good one will be flat, on the top. You need to service motherboard. Most of the motherboards carry 3-years warranty.

2. RAM problem: try to put your RAM chips in another slot if vacant. if you have two slots and both are occupied, then try starting system, by placing one RAM at a time and in each slot alternately.
If any combination works then you can make out if and whether your RAM or its slot is faulty.

3. Hanging due to overheating: Before you get the message "Press F1....", pres PAUSE key several times, it should halt the process and the message will not be displayed. This will make sure that the system is halted by pressing the PAUSE Key. After one minute, release pause by pressing any other key and see if you can move further. There may be two possibilities . . .

a) If you are still in the same position, where you have paused the system. The system is halted due to CPU over-heating. Clean the CPU fan with blower or a vacuum cleaner. See, if all of the locks of the CPU FAN and the heat-sink are intact. If the fan itself is not rotating, check for the fan cable and if it is OK, then try replacing CPU Fan.

b) You have reached the same point where it used to stuck before, i.e. at "Press F1...". Now this means your system has halted while detecting other peripherals or add-on cards.

i. HARDDISK: Most possible cause is your HARDDISK is making "click-click" sound and not getting detected. Switch off system and remove all HDD cables (Power and Data both). Start your system and see if you get any message like "insert system disk" this means there is problem with your HARDDISK. the same problem may be caused due to CDROMs. try same and try again.

ii. SMPS POWER SUPPLY: This symptom may be caused due to inadequate power supply. You can change SMPS and make sure if the problem is due to power supply.

iii. ADD-ON CARDS: Remove any add-on card like, Sound card, Graphics card, Modem and switch on the system. if system starts, then turn-off PC. Try placing one card at a time. and start system to make out which card is making the problem.

If the problem remains, get back to us.

Have a nice day!

I have hp nc6220, if often hangs and is always unpredictable, but when i press its touchpad from downward and keep it pressed it works, when i release that it hangs again


I had this problem (hanging on the screen with F10 = ROM based setup) for a while on my HP nc6220 laptop. Was taking several attempts to boot. Replaced the hard drive. Ran virus and malware detection, all clean. Stumbled on to the posting where someone wrote about applying pressure by the touch pad seemed to help. It did. Then the problem gradually got worse. Thought maybe there was something loose. Downloaded the disassembly procedure from hp.com. I found the 2 ground contacts under the touch pad had oxidation on them. Cleaned them with a pencil eraser. Reassembled the laptop and have not hung once. Everything runs faster as well. This is not for the novice, but someone with a little experience should be able to get through the process. Hope this helps someone.
