    I don't think it's a control panel issue. The problem comes and goes and I cannot replicate the problem. I unplugged the power cord, let the battery run dead and then took it out for a few minutes. I returned the battery, plugged it in again to charge and the problem has disappeared (for now).

    Have you tried making adjustments in the control panel?

If it only does it running on battery power, try adjusting your power saver option. You may also want to run a program like Malwarebytes (free) to make sure it isn't some spyware causing the problem. http://www.malwarebytes.org/

I have been having an issue where my mouse becomes very slow and jumpy when playing black ops. At all other times it is fine. Any ideas what could be causing this.


Do you experience lag while playing the game? If the game lags, mouse movement will probably lag as well. Do you have another mouse/trackpad/input device you can try? If your other input devices work, it could be a problem with your mouse.

Check to see that you have the latest drivers for your mouse. It could be that obsolete drivers are causing the problem.

Ensure you have no virus in the laptop and after running Norton Anti Virus or Windows Essentials, go online to www.toshiba.com and download updated drivers.
That will fix your problem.

Toshiba L500 - the @ and " are reversed


Hello,

its normal, its not all keyboard that has there "@" on number 2. Even the latest HP laptops that are produced these days have their @ on the same position like yours. You will find @ at the right side of the key board, near later "L".

Its normal, there is nothing to worry about because its not a fault. Just try to get use with the new changes.

Take care.

That is indeed a problem with keyboard commands.
Try to hook up an external keyboard through your USB connector and see what happens.

Mouse inconsistent


Other than checking with the manufacturer for updated drivers or known issues - or attempting to roll-back the driver if a new one has been installed recently, I can't think of anything, seems to be a sticking button or otherwise faulty mouse.

Logitech LX310 keyboard / mouse (wireless)


Firstly, try changing the batteries in the keyboard.

If still has issues, try moving the receiver to another area. Try to remove from other sources of interference such as Monitors, Speakers and Power Supplies.

If this doesn't work, try using a non-wireless mouse, and see if the keyboard still has issues.

If all this fails, then I would consider replacment.

Toshiba Wireless Mouse


Your mouse might have had an internal receptor problem, meaing it can not read the signal from the adapter. This sometimes happens with wireless products. Contact Toshiba and they should give you a new one free of charge since it seems it was a faulty product. Rate me if this helps!
