CURSOR IS BLOCKED


When your mouse pad is not functioning, it's hard to get most anything done on your computer. The fortunate side to all this is that getting a mouse pad to work again on a laptop is not an overly complex procedure. A few troubleshooting techniques will quickly lead you on your way to productivity again.

Examine your mouse pad. Dirt and grime can affect performance and slow down mouse sensitivity, if not shut it down altogether. Make sure the surface of the track pad is clean and that there is nothing that has managed to get beneath it or around any trackball buttons that could affect the pressing and depressing of the component. Check to see if your mouse pad has been turned off. If the Fn (Function) button at the bottom left of the keyboard is pressed in conjunction with some other key on the keyboard it can result in the disabling of the mouse pad. To enable your mouse pad on a Windows PC go to the Control Menu. Under the Printers and Other Hardware option, click on Mouse. Then, click on the tab on the top of the pop-up menu that says Device Settings. The touch pad for your computer should come up as a selectable option. Click on it and you will see the option to enable your device, then click OK. If this does not work, proceed to the next Step . Check the manufacturer of your laptop (for example, Toshiba) and then navigate to their official website. Find an area for Software and Drivers, and move on to that area. Enter your laptop number (check your documentation/manuals and/or the bottom of the computer) and look through the drivers that are presented as a result of this number input. It could be that your mouse pad simply needs updated drivers. Find the driver that corresponds to your computer and mouse pad (for example, most Acer laptops use a Synaptics touch pad). Then, click on download. Once the drivers have downloaded, double click them to ensure they install, restart your laptop, and your mouse pad should be working again. Hope this helps.

The right side of my touch pad control button has stopped working


Did you check the settings for the left and right buttons under the mouse properties. Normally the left should be set on Click and the right should be set on Shortcut. If it's set to NONE then it will be inoperable. Better yet you can click the Default tab for buttons. Otherwise, it sounds like your touch pad needs to be replaced. The immediate remedy to this is to just go purchase a USB mouse and voila, you'll have the ability to left and right click.

I cant get my mouse to move on my samsung lapton


It is possible to turn the mouse pad off. On this laptop, the Fn key plus the F10 at the same time should toggle the mouse pad on and off. If this does not help, try an external mouse. If the Fn + F10 key does not work, but an external mouse does, make sure that you have a driver installed for the mouse pad by doing the following: Click start, then right-click on computer (my computer if you are on Windows XP), and click Manage. When the Computer Management window comes up, look in the left hand pane, and click on Device Manager. Then look in the right hand pane for mice and other pointing devices click the tirangle or plus just to the left of mice and see what pops out from underneath. If any of those have a big yellow exclamation mark, then there is a problem with the driver. right-click the problem driver and click Uninstall. Tell it yes, you want to do that, and then, after it is finished, right-click on the node at the top of the right-hand window that represents your computer, and click Scan for hardware changes. make sure you are connected to the internet, and tell it to connect to windows update to find the right driver. Follow the wizard to finish installing the correct driver. If you see something under Mice that has the word touchpad or obviously represents your touchpad, then that means there is a touchpad driver installed. Right click on it, and click update driver software. Make sure that you are connected to the internet before you go any farther. Then click Search automatically for updated driver software. Follow the wizard to finish installing any updated (if any) drivers. If none of this works, use an external mouse (wired or wireless), because it sounds like your mouse pad is broken. If an external mouse doesn't work, it sounds like you may need to get a new computer.

My mouse pad on my lap top isnt working, it moves around but when i click it wont select or click or i dunno what to call it lol, **** the right click works, just not the left.


Sounds like the track pad button is broken. Unfortunately that would mean it needs physically replaced. I might suggest using a USB mouse instead.

I can't stop the arrow keys from scrolling the screen up and down. The character in the game still moves but the whole screen does too, it's so annoying! It's only started recently. These things DO NOT...


From the sounds of it you have Caret Browsing enabled. You can disable it in in your browser (presumably Internet Explorer) with the F7 key or in the Page file menu.

The left click on my eeepc 701 is not working and am unable to drag. thanks.


It sounds like your track pad is dying. This should not be a problem though if you have a USB mouse near by. Just plug the mouse in and it will work. Then navigate to the mouse and trackpad settings in the computer to see if a setting can be changed to get the track pad working again. Otherwise, just buy small USB mouse to carry around with your eeepc.

Shortage?


There is a ribbon cable between the laptop & the screen. It sounds like you have a short in that cable. If you're not good with tedius electronic repairs, it would be best to have a shop repair it.

Windows keep popping up


I've had this happen to me by accident once and a while. if it's many months then possibly re-installing the touchpad drivers (or updating them) would help.
You can also adjust mouse settings in the control panel, found in my computer on the left side of the window.
Hope this helps a little, It does sound like the buttons are sticky. be sure to rate! :)

Blank screen with flashing curser in top left hand corner,


I need a little bit more info.

Do you have a floppy disk in the floppy drive? Remove it. Do you have a CD in the CD drive? Remove it and restart your notebook.

Put your ear on the left side of the track pad. Do you hear any clicking sounds? Do the same for the right side. Do you hear any clicking sounds? If you hear any clicking sounds, and it seems to be constant, you may have a failed hard disk drive.

Try these thing and let me know what happens. Binary Bob
