When you use an external mouse ensure you turn of the touch pad, it may be getting confused and acting erratic, this may be disabled automatically when you installed the other mouse ,,also ensure when using the touch pad that only one finger is touching it ,to turn it back on can be as simple as pressing the button near the touch pad,the light should come on ,or go into control panel double click on the mouse icon and turn the touch pad on (accupointer).
good luck

How to change time and date on my pc


are running a Windows computer you should place the mouse pointer over the date/time, usually at the bottom right corner of your screen. Right mouse click on the date/time and scroll down to "adjust date/time" and left mouse click on that. A window will appear allowing you to reset the date/time. You can also change the time zone to your particular time zone. Some O/S will allow you to select internet time, which automatically keeps the correct time.

Sounds like a windows error though, some how the installation may have been corrupted. I suggest performing a virus scan on a test PC. An alternative is to take it in to a computer technician.

I bought my HP Pavilion dv5 about 3 months ago. On the keypad you have to forcefully push it down if you don't use it within a period of time and the mouse pointer works after that. I was wondering if I...


I have an HP dv5 as well, for about 2 years now. After about a year, I started having problems with the mouse keypad. The left button would work intermittently. I eventually figured out that these mouse buttons aren't designed for heavy use. It's best to use an external mouse. I ended up buying a replacement part off of eBay and installing it (which was a major pain--you have to take apart most of the laptop to get it installed). I'm not sure if the problem you have is related. Was there any impact to the laptop at all that might have loosened something up inside?

Have a pcl wl01, both usb & mouse lights on, pc will not acknowledge...nor will update mouse driver help..


Start button ---> Settings ---> Control Panel ---> System ---> Hardware Tab ---> Device Manager

Locate the "Mouse and other pointers", expand menu, and uninstall all mouse/pointers. Power down, plug in the mouse, and re-boot. Allow Windows to discover new hardware (the mouse) and it will install a generic driver to runthe peripheral. You can then go back to the device manager, right-click on the mouse, and update the driver if necessary!

If this does not work, you may have a problem with the USB hub... follow the same instructions as above, but remove the USB (at the bottom of the list). By allowing Windows to discover new hardware, you'll at least get a basic-functioning driver that you can then upgrade/update later!

Hope this helps!

I would suggest that you borrow a generic mouse from someone and plug it in the vista and then do that. Another option is to boot your computer in safe mode and then uninstall the drivers there as the mouse will work with generic drivers in safe mode.

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
