Dell Vostro A860 Touchpad Issue

Dell Vostro Notebook A860, Service Tag: 8XXQLH1

When using the Touchpad, the pointer on-screen regularly stops for a brief moment. I've reinstalled the Touchpad and Display drivers (running Vista Home Premium).

All attempts have failed to fix the problem, including running virus scan (McAfee) to check for hacker.

Any other suggestions?

In my dellvostro a860 , rite side of the screen colours are spreaded,it it looks like shade,,whats the problem in that i m not getting please help me..........


It is the screen Inverter, or the LCD screen itself.

Screen Inverter: A small circuit board located behind the Display Bezel, and mounted towards the bottom of the LCD screen,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vosA860/en/sm/display.htm#wp1183775

The yellowish long object, at the bottom, is the screen Inverter.

Here is another look at it,

http://www.batterycenturys.com/dell-vostro-a860-inverter-p-185294.html

Dell Support > Vostro a860 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vosA860/en/sm/index.htm

In the list clicking on -> Display, will get you to the first link above.

Need guidance in replacing the screen Inverter, post in a Comment.

(Just a basic guide using a Vostro 1014/1015 Notebook PC. Not yours, but good for basic guidance. This is replacing the LCD screen,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-lcd-screen-dell-vostro-1015-1014-laptop/
)

[ Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NA_Optical/Systems/BehindTheScenes/Optics101/

( Click on the small window with the monitor in it )

It needs an additional light source. A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight can be a CCFL, (or more than one), or a series of LED's used as lights.

The Dell Vostro a860 Notebook PC uses one CCFL, for a Backlight, OR there are Vostro a860's that use LED lights.
(If you replace the LCD screen, make sure FIRST of what type of Backlighting it uses)

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

[Average thickness of a CCFL is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height ]

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

Most of the time the fault is the screen Inverter.

The Vostro a860 Notebook PC's, that uses LED's as a Backlight, MAY also use a screen Inverter.

Primer over.

For your problem it could be the screen Inverter, but I lean more towards the LCD screen itself, is the problem.

How to test a screen Inverter? Requires a very sensitive multimeter.
Read; Expensive,

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

For a layman who does not have access to a sensitive multimeter, the method is to just replace the screen Inverter, and see if it is the problem.
'Parts changing', I know, but if you do not have the proper equipment to test with?

Screen Inverter replaced, and problem still persists, replace the LCD screen,

My dell vostro a860 keeps over heating because i dropped and now it over heats because the cores get up to 93 degrees celsius


Due to the shock, your laptop may have broken and have displaced parts and the fan/ heat sink etc might not be working. Over heating can cause further damage. Hence, it is strongly recommended that you immediately seek professional assistance to avoid any permanent damage to the system

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!
