If the computer does not come on when you press the power button, check all of your cables and make sure they are attached right, if they are, you could have a bad power supply aka "psu" you can purchace a power supply from any computer store for 30-100 bucks i would recommend at least a 300 watt power supply if you are using a desktop pc. you can also have it tested at most computer repair shops.

Nearly every modern laptop computer comes with a touchpad for on-screen interaction. Depending on your operating system and touchpad driver versions, you can update the speed, sensitivity, tap speed and clicking functions of your computer's touch pad.

Accessing these settings and updating them to meet your needs is a quick and easy process with both the Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X operating systems.

Open the Control Panel by clicking the Windows Start button and selecting "Control Panel." Depending on your Windows configuration, this option may be located within the Start Menu's "Settings" sub-folder.

Double-click the Control Panel's "Mouse" icon.

Click the Touchpad tab.
This tab can have one of several names, depending on your computer manufacturer, your operating system version and your device drivers.

However, the most common labels include "Touch Pad," "Device Settings" and "Dell Touchpad." If you do not see any option resembling these, you may not be able adjust your laptop's touchpad settings.

Refer to the "Warnings" section if this applies to your computer. Locate the "Scrolling Settings" area within the touchpad properties tab.

Enable a Mouse for a Laptop

Without the ability to drag and drop and point and click, a laptop computer is merely a desk ornament.

Most laptops are manufactured with a built-in mouse in the form of a touchpad.

If the touchpad fails or if you just prefer working with a mouse, it is easy to enable a mouse for use with your laptop.

Purchase a mouse that is compatible with your laptop.
You can find compatibility information on the manufacturer's website.

If the mouse is wireless, make sure that the USB receiver is included, or purchase it separately. The mouse will not function without the receiver.

Insert the batteries in the mouse if you are installing a wireless mouse.
The battery compartment is generally located on the bottom of the mouse.

Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the computer.
If you are using a wireless mouse, connect the USB wireless receiver to the USB port.

Turn the computer off and then on again if you are enabling a standard mouse with a wire.
This will instruct the computer to run the "new hardware" wizard, which will walk you through the installation of the mouse, and your mouse will be enabled.

Turn the wireless mouse over, and locate a small indentation with a button.
You may need to use the tip of a pencil or pen to depress this button.

Simultaneously press the button on the mouse and the small button on the USB receiver.
This will initiate communication between the mouse and the receiver.

Hold the buttons down for about 5 to 10 seconds until the light on the mouse comes on.
Test the connection by moving the mouse.

If the cursor moves, you have successfully enabled the mouse.
If not, check that you have the batteries installed.

Try pressing the buttons independently of one another.
Press the button on the receiver until the light blinks and release it.

Press the button on the bottom of the mouse until the light on the mouse is lit.
This should enable your wireless mouse.

Usb device not recognized

New hardware often comes with specific instructions for installation. Some want you to install software first - others want the hardware installed first. Make sure you're supplying the PC with what is needed - in the order it is needed.

If the device requires external power - be sure to provide it.

When prompted to allow connecting to the internet to search for drivers after connecting the hardware - be sure to allow it. If the PC is unable to locate drivers online, the device should have come with software on a disk. Insert the disk into the computer and tell the computer that you have inserted the disk and choose "removable drives". If no software was supplied, check with the manufacturer's website. Download the drivers needed for your operating system. If there are no drivers for your operating system listed, the hardware may not be supported on it. You should contact the manufacturer of the device to see if they have a "work- around" for you.

Good luck!

Bootmgr is missing and my cd drive doesnot work,so what do i do now

You can make a USB install on another computer. You need an app like Novicorp to make it bootable. Then change the boot menu to USB as 1st boot. Choose install then repair.

Oh, just insert a straightened paperclip into the tiny manual eject hole. The CD should eject. No power required.

This is a warning that some piece of hardware is not working. You may want to check fans making sure that they are functioning to keep your devices cooled down. If these stop working you may have burned out the CPU chip. Most likely it is a memory stick or a mouse or keyboard that may not be connected properly make sure that everything is connected and in their right ports. What I do to find this out what it is I isolate devices to see if the beeping with stop or it will start the BIOS. I start with the mouse then keyboard then anything that is plugged in externally I unplug one at a time powering up each time I undo a device if the beeping stops then that is the problem device. You can also go in the computer case and undo the hard drive and one stick of memory one by one. If it continues and you have illuminated just about everything then it may be the system board itself.

More than likely it is a memory chip you know it is not the power supply because it starts up. If you do not want to do this process of illumination most folks do not. I suggest you take it in and let the people who can best fix this do the job. They can determine the issue rather quickly by reading the codes on the BIOS flash page when the computer first starts up try and see what it is saying when it comes on if you get the BIOS at least to flash information for you. The machine will say keyboard not installed or no hard drive found. Also you can go back by removing any devices that you just replaced or added this could also be the cause.

Last ditch effort unplug the computer from the power outlet push in the power button hold for about 2-3 seconds you will see a flash. Now plug the computer back in the power outlet then restart the computer this sets your computer back to default settings and loads devices again. Often times this can resolve problems more than likely with beeping it will be a hardware issue. I hope that this shed some light on the issue for you, thanks for using FixYa! John

Push the on button and nothing happens

I believe you are using a new power supply now.
Before you start, first check if your Power button is OK.

To do this, first unplug the power cord from your PC.

Remove POWER-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) from you Motherboard
Remove RESET-Button connector (with black/white or blue/white wires) and put it on the place of POWER-Button. (polarity for these buttons is not important)
Plug the power cord back and press RESET.
Does it change things ?
If it starts, then your Power-Button is broken.

If not, remove the power cord and then put te POWER-Button and RESET-Button on their places on the Motherboard.

Now do the following:
(please remember the position and polarity of all cables/items you remove/unplug, Use Digital camera if necessary). Be patient, don't hurry!
- Unplug the power cord.
- Press power button few times (power cord is unplugged).
- Remove the Battery.
- Unplug the Monitor cable and remove VGA card.
- Remove RAM module(s).
- REMOVE any PCI cards(Modem. Lan, Audio etc.).
- Unplug any HDD/FDD/DVD cables from the Motherboard.
- Unplug Power from all your HDD/FDD/DVD devices.


- Put the batery back (be careful to the polarity)
- Put the Computer power cord
- Turn on your PC.

Is the Processor Cooler running ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If not, then your Motherboard is broken !

If there are some beeps, then your Motherboard is OK, but some component(s) is broken.
Turn Off your PC by pressing the Power button for about 4 sec.
Unplug the power cord and press Power button few times.
Put your VGA back, and connect the monitor cable, too.
Put back ONLY ONE memory module (if there are more).
Connect the Power cord and press Power button.

Do you have a picture now ?
Are there Beeps from PC Speaker?

If you have a picture, put back all other memory modules and PCI cards, connect Data and Power cables to your HDD/FDD/DVD units, but ONE at TIME.
Do not connect and put everything back all at once!
After each change, see if there is a Pcture and (one) beep.
It needs some time but that's how you will detect which device/cable is maybe broken!
And remember:
Before you do any change, AALLWAYS do that with power cord unplugged and power button few times pressed !!!
If there are Beeps, try another memory module.

Again if there are still beeps, you have problem either with your RAM or VGA.
If there are infinite long beeps, than it is your RAM.
If there is one long and many (8) short beeps, then it is your VGA

Replace it!

Hi infofreak,
Try to follow these steps one by one.
1. Remove the power supply cable from the hard disk, CD/DVD, floppy drive or any other device you might have.
2. Check the wires that go to your front panel ;pwr sw, reset, hdd led, pwr led, speaker etc. Make sure there are at the correct position.
3. Now turn on your computer, if ok you should see some info on your monitor screen.
4. If ok, you can put back the power cable to hard disk only left the others open. Turn on the computer , if ok then proceed with other device one by one. If something wrong in between then maybe your power supply isn't deliver enough power to your system. Get a larger rating power supply.
5. If step 3 is not ok, then take out the power cable on the motherboard from the power supply. Wait a few seconf and place it back to the connector. Make sure it is securely fit, you should hear a click sound once it is fitted in. Turn on your computer.
If Ok repeat step 4.
6. If still not ok, as step 5 this time take out the CPU.

Try the above steps and see whether they can solve your problem. Good Luck
