This is a typical port issue. and the first thing you need to do is to reboot the pc and let it sit for about 5 minutes before turning it on. this way you will let your PC to refresh that can help solve the port issues of your computer.

My Toshiba A665-S6086 is having 2 problems: 1. Everytime I started my laptop today, it would load up, and then it would freeze. My mouse moves, and I can see everything (desktop, taskbar, etc.) When I move...


In safe mode- go to event viewer, and look for the fault- it sometimes is a windows update not installing properly, or, it could be a graphics driver problem. The yellow symbol similar to a statement, could give a clue, or, other shown faulting code.
Right click computer, left click manage, and then left lick on event viewer, and let us know what it says.

Dell Inspiron 1501 Touchpad locked up


Check the system setup F2 at start, and ensure the touchpad is enabled, next try an external mouse, see if it works.
If and external mouse works, the touch pad has failed and a new palmrest is needed.

Touchpad not working


Using your keyboard, press the windows hot key, then use the arrow keys to go up and to the right to control panel, then arrow over to the system icon, then arrow through the tabs to the hardware tab, then press TAB to select the "device manager" button and click enter....in the device manager, press tab again in order to highlight the first selection and arrow down to "mouse and other pointing devices" then press the right arrow key to expand that selection and see if it is recognizing your mouse pad, if it does, highlight it and press enter, arrow over to the "driver" tab and try updating the driver, if that doesn't work, try a troubleshoot from the first properties tab.....and if none of this works......the touchpad is most likely dead. Try contacting the manufacturer and see if they can replace the touch pad.....

Fix scroller in mid of mouse


is this some old XP op sys? No PC actually stated,
no service tag model stated.
Generic answer.:
old PCs, with old PS2 mice.
it has a driver, if device manager tells you its ok, then why not
go to control panel , and see the word MOUSE.
click that and set the center button as you desiree.
using arrow keys does not reconfigure the mouse. btw.
support ends after 10 years, (about)
then click tab , WHEEL, and set it as needed.
or the mouse is dead, the wheel deep inside, loves to grow LENT
and the LENT blocks the optical wheel encoder inside.
and makes it fail. (all do this , this old, wait for it, bam. )
try a new mouse
clean yours (google how)
bUy a USB mouse, but XP hates USB so GET service pack3 for XP
and pray the USB like your new mouse but wait I may not.

Id go to goodwill (store) pick put out PC that came new with windows7
so you have support.
I think covered every possible way here, liking PC model. NO NOT REALLY., ill list them.
1: VIRUS INFECTED PC. most XP are, its loves to.
2: bad mouse
3: bad mouse driver.
4: bad setups in the mouse page.
