Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T400 - Intel Centrino 2 Core 2 Duo T9400 2.53GHz Notebook Laptops (276712U)

While typing, all of sudden, the screen scrolls

I have a Lenova T400 laptop. While typing, all of sudden, the screen scrolls down to the bottom. The only way to fix it is to push the left mouse button. Am I hitting something inadvertently with my hand while typing? It has become quite an annoyance.

This could be a sticky key or could be the cursor button defective. Check around the buttons for any dirt / grease deposits that force the keys to stick. If you have an external mouse connected then disconnect it.

How do i right mouse click on lenova e431?


The TrackPad on the e431 is different from the traditional trackpads we are used to from Lenovo. Lenovo has eliminated the two click buttons, but have instead integrated them into the trackpad itself. There are two red lines along the top left and right of the trackpad, and pressing the one on the left is equivalent to pressing the left mouse button, and pressing on the red line on the right side is the right-mouse button.

Logitech 8043770000 it do not respond to the button feature on left side which should enable me to schroll my chart down the screen


The scroll button should be the wheel. rolling back the wheel should scroll for you. you can also auto scroll by pushing down on the wheel and gently pulling the mouse backward. (faster you pull the mouse, faster it scrolls)

Wireless Mouse


Have you changed the batteries recently?

Normal 0 Normal 0 If the mouse doesn't have a little door to open on the bottom, then try this. Just behind the Left and Right keys where your hand rests, apply firm pressure down on the cover and slide to the rear. Some mouse manufactures have used this type of access to replace the batteries.



If it’s a wireless GE mouse turn it on by pushing the button on the bottom and hold till the red light comes on. Assuming the computer is running, press the Blue light on the Receiver and then, press the button on the bottom of the mouse and it should start tracking on the monitor.
Hope this helps. Bud

Erratic mouse behavior or my mouse has a mind of it's own


GO TO REGISTRY EDIT, FIND HKEY_CONTROLPANEL\MOUSE.

DELETE THE KEYS THEN RESTART WINDOWS.
WINDOWS WILL REBUILD THE KEYS.
IT MAY BE THAT YOUR REG KEY IS CORRUPTED.
