Toshiba U205 Notebook mouse highlights and freezes

I have a Toshiba U205-S5022 notebook. It constantly freezes and the mouse will not work or the mouse highlights everything in blue.  When it does this in in my email program,  I cannot select to send email.

I just did a complete restore and have not added any programs.

Most likely your laptop is overheating and shutting down to protect itself. Is the fan running on high most of the time? That would indicate your laptop is running hot. Toshiba made a huge mistake on this model by covering the vent holes for the cooling fan on the bottom of the laptop with a label indicating the model, part number and serial number. It is a gray sticker located on the left side between the hard drive access cover and the battery release slide #2. You can remove this label completely or, if you wish to retain the information for future reference, removing the sections that do not have any important info (more than half of the label) should do the trick. You will notice that not only does your laptop not freeze up anymore, it will also run much cooler and quieter.

Mouse bluetooth freeze 32 bit 526


Step 1:
Check for weak batteries. Remove the battery cover by pressing down on the cover at the tab, then pulling the cover away. Take out the batteries and replace them with fresh batteries, inserting them according to the markings in the battery compartment. Replace the cover. Test the mouse to see if the problem is resolved. Check for Windows configuration issues. Windows must be configured to use Bluetooth devices in general. Click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Bluetooth Devices". This opens the Bluetooth Devices window. Click the "Options" tab and check the box next to "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" if it is not already checked. Click the "OK" button. Test the mouse to see if the problem is resolved. Check for installation issues. Your particular Bluetooth mouse must be properly installed on Windows. If the mouse is not recognized at all by your notebook, connect a wired mouse. Again, click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Bluetooth Devices". Click the "Add" button to start the Bluetooth Device Wizard. Follow the prompts in the wizard. When the wizard finishes, test the mouse to see if the problem is resolved. Check for location issues. The device may be either too close to or too far from your notebook. Move the mouse progressively closer and farther and test to see if the problem is resolved.

Mouse freezes & Hard drive LED indicator remains 'ON' all the time.


You could be running too many programs all at once.

Have you done a CTRL ALT DEL to bring up the task manager?

Check the "Performance" tab. If the CPU is at 90 to 100 %, for a long time, and the notebook is offline, then u could have a virus that is attempting to get on the internet and therefore slowing you down.

Since ur notebook is new, Have you set up all the programs to NOT check for automatic updates in all their options areas?

Lots of times all the major softwares are built in with default options to check for updates and auto install those.

So if you could look for those too and uncheck them...then reboot. You should see a performance difference.

I have toshiba notebook A200.I have been using a USB mouse,and I now can not get the touch pad to operate.Plerase advise me what I can do.I have tried FL F9 to no avail.


If you unplug the mouse and then start up the machine does the touchpad not work at that point?

Some systems have a settings in BIOS that prevent the touchpad from working if a mouse if connected.

Try unplugging, start up and if the touchpad doesn't work, shut down and go into the system settings and turn on the touchpad (if turned off).

Also, make sure the device manager doesn't show any Yellow Exclamation points, meaning a bad or missing driver. To get to Device Mananger, go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager (in Windows XP that is).

Copyright 2007 by Morris Rosenthal -All Rights Reserved contact info How to replace a Notebook Keyboard and Mouse with USB Adapter When your laptop keyboard fails, you can usually buy a replacement for somewhere between $60 and $120, but putting it in is a real bear, and given the current prcies laptops have fallen to, it's tough to justify as well. When you own the same notebook computer for as long as I have, the pointing device, be it a pad or an intellipoint thingy, is going to fail. Laptop keyboard life is also somewhat limited compared to regular keyboards, hair winding around the works is a big problem, but I'd hate to encorage folks with limited mechanical skills to go prying off their keys because it takes some skill to get them back on. So, most notebooks have a PS/2 port to allow for an external mouse or keyboard, but few have both. You can try a PS/2 splitter if you can find one, but the more elegant solution is a USB to PS/2 adaper, shown at right. usb1.jpg USB Keyboard and Mouse Adapter
usb2.jpg Computer End of USB Cable
The USB to PS/2 adapter comes equipped with a standard USB input, the rectangular shaped connector (left). The other end sports two PS/2 ports, green and purple, green is for mouse, purple is for keyboard. You don't have to use them both at the same time, but for a notebook with a failing keyboard and pointer (Ahem) it's a good solution. Windows has had native support for USB mice and keyboards at least as far back as Windows 98, I wouldn't bet on '95 as all the USB support was sketchy. The point is, as long as you're using WIndows 98 or later, you don't need any special software with the USB to PS/2 adapter. So, what's the big deal about installing a USB adapter that I did a whole page about it? Try it when the laptop CD drive has failed:-) The CD drive on my notebook went south over a year ago and I never got around to replacing it because I figured with a failing keyboard and mouse, I should be looking for a new notebook. The solution is to actually install the USB to PS/2 adapter on another PC with the same version of Windows. Then, install it on the notebook, and every time Windows looks for a driver on the CD that doesn't work, point it to the A: drive instead, go to the other PC and copy the reqired file onto a floppy, and do sneaker net. It may have taken 20 minutes, but it's a once in a lifetime job, so it was worth it.

Don't replace anything without troubleshooting first! Thinking about doing this for a living?
In case you're wondering, if you want to install real software, as in programs that won't fit on a floppy, onto a notebook with a dead CD drive, you can buy an external USB CD for much cheaper than a replacment drive for the notebook. Installing the software from the USB CD can be just as much fun as above, unless they provide the drive on a floppy, you'll have to install the software on another PC with the same OS first and then bring the required files over one at a time as Windows asks for them. You can use a Jump Drive instead of a floppy, though it's the same amount of work. BTW, I know I use laptop and notebook unterchangably, it's habitual, not intentional:-)

Good Luck, Please dont for get to Vote.Thank You.
