If you are good enough in opening the casing of a laptop & then safely closing it back,then you may try opening the casing & the keyboard.The mouse touch pad is usually a seperate unit attached with MB with a thin film cable.You have to carefully remove it from its connector & then try cleaning it with any cleaning spray.I am not very optimistic about it as usually the "touchpad" is a sealed unit & the tiny microswitches will be sealed inside the housing!

HOw to Clean your keyobard effectively


Keyboard cleaningIf you're trying to clean a laptop keyboard see document CH000780 for additional help and information. All of the below information applies to standard desktop computer keyboards.
Why? Dirt, dust and hair can build up causing the keyboard to not function properly.
Procedure: Many people clean the keyboard by turning it upside down and shaking. A more effective method is to use compressed air. Compressed air is pressurized air contained in a can with a very long nozzle. Simply aim the air between the keys and blow away all of the dust and debris that has gathered there. A vacuum cleaner can also be used, but make sure the keyboard doesn't have loose "pop off" keys that could possibly be sucked up by the vacuum.
Why? If the keyboard has anything spilt into it (ie: pop, cola, Pepsi, Coke, beer, wine, coffee, milk, etc.), not taking the proper steps can cause the keyboard to be destroyed.
Procedure: Below are a few recommendations to help prevent a keyboard from becoming bad once a substance has been spilt within it.
If anything is spilt onto the keyboard turn the computer off immediately. Once the computer is turned off, quickly flip the keyboard over helping to prevent the substance from penetrating circuits. While the keyboard is upside down, shake the keyboard over a surface you do not mind getting wet or that can be cleaned up later. While still upside down, use a cloth to help clean out what can be reached. After you you have cleaned the keyboard to the best of your ability leave the keyboard upside down for at least one night allowing it to dry.
If a keyboard does not work after trying it again later it is recommended that it be replaced. If the keyboard works but some of the keys are sticky or cannot be pressed in you can attempt to do additional cleaning in attempt to resolve the issue. Unfortunately many times when any sticky substance such as a non-diet pop is spilt directly onto the keyboard it's usually a loss unless you plan on spending dozens of hours attempting to clean each key.
Why? A keyboard that is used by multiple people, such as students or different employees, may need to be disinfected to help the spread of germs.
Procedure: Turn off the computer. Spray a disinfectant onto a cloth or damp a cloth with alcohol and rub each of the keys on the keyboard. As mentioned in our general cleaning tips, never spray any type of liquid onto the keyboard.

FIXYA The power supply output of my Dell Dimension 8200 desktop pc is delayed for minutes after i press the ON button in the tower front. The momentary button switch is OK. The delay is 15 minutes if


It's not about the switch, a problem may be caused by bad power management control driven by XP. Ask on DELL's forum about any patches about this. Finally, check-up your power management scheme.

I have a toshiba laptop the mousepad won't move.


First connect a mouse to your laptop. Click "Start" and open the control panel, click printers and other hardware and then click "mouse". Under mouse properties, click the "device settings" tab. Under the device window, you can see if the touchpad is enabled or not. If it is not enabled, click on the enable button.then click "apply" of "ok" button. Your touchpad should be working again.

Computer keeps shuting down. GATEWAY desktop mod# Lx6810-01, ser# ptg590x00190910c3e2700 less than 2 yr old


Hello,

Most likely this is an overheating situation.
If your CPU is running at over 60 degrees you might be at risk of burning it out. Some systems shut down automatically when the temperature reaches an unsafe level.

Every few weeks I open my system unit and clean the fins on the heat sink that sits under the CPU. When they collect dust it restricts the airflow and prevents proper cooling. I just did that on my system and the CPU temperature dropped by ten degrees!


If you determine that overheating is not the problem, the most likely suspect is bad memory. The best way to find the culprit is to pop open the system unit, remove (or replace) one RAM stick and see if the problem is solved. Run your system for a while and if the problem goes away, you win!
If not. lather, rinse and repeat for each RAM stick until you find the one that's misbehaving.

Our Casio PCR-T265 will not print or feed in the REG mode but. .


I've never had an issue with printing only in certain modes. If the feed button doesn't work either in certain modes, then I waould say you have either a damaged mode switch (under the key), or a faulty keyboard. If any liquid has been spilt on it, this sort of issue can arise.
