I bought Compaq Presario CQ56 couple of days back and the mouse from touchpad keeps freezing and do not move. But USB wireless mouse works well even when the pad one is not. Could you please help?

a machine that new I would defiantly take it back and have it either fixed or replace, time is on your side i would take advantage of the manufacture warranty. i would also look on the keyboard see if there is a mouse locking feature, its normally the picture of a mouse on one of your function keys, press function and the key with the mouse icon on it and that may take care of it.

Hi i have a laptop that if i on it the colling fan will spin and the light led will comes up but is not displaying and if it display it will show up red colour.what cause it?

I assume Windows is able to load and when the display shows red, you actually see icons and can move the mouse's pointer.
The problem is caused by weared light bulb of the LCD. When weared a light bulb glows pink or reddish.
Replacing it will solve the problem but it's not easy. It requires dismantling the entire LCD, keeping very clean environment to avoid dust in the LCD sandwich and very careful assembly with taking care not to break or crack the LCD glass. Much easier but more expensive is to replace the entire LCD.

My touchpad isn't working how can i fix this??

Some laptops disable the TouchPad while an other mouse is connected thrugh USB.

Also, please check on your keyboard for a black-mouse-icon-in-a-square on a keyboard button and press FN + that button, you might have accidentally disabled the mouse by pressing that combination in the first place.

You might also have disabled your mouse from your mouse driver software (Synaptics etc).

Good luck and please rate this solution in order to keep the good answers comming !

Magnifier doesn't work

Try going to Control Panel and click on the mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse. In the left column,move your cursor over the right side button click on the drop down and select magnify. Hopefully it will now work.

I had to move the magnify function to the left button because it was to sensitive on the right.
