Question about Toshiba Tecra M2 Notebook

1 Answer

Drfting cursor The cursor will from time to time drift off to the top right corner or the lower left one, and will not come out, even with firm appilication of pressure on the accupoint. Other times it will move grudgingly but not hold steady. Then it will suddenly behave normally for a while. Using the touch pad is then OK. The same problem occurs with a USB mouse. I tried placing the cursor on the minimize button, top right, and touching the center of the touchpad; this seemed at first to work, but soon the drifting resumed. Any solutions would help.

This is a well known occurance with laptops and is not something you can fix. Occasionally the manufacturer will release a patch to try and help, but this is very rare.

What's an Air Hockey gameplay?


The games play as described by USAA:

  • The mallet is gripped behind the knob using one's fingertips, not on top of it. This allows more wrist action and helps the player to move the mallet around the table faster.
  • For basic defense, the mallet is kept centered at least 8 inches out from the goal. In this position, very slight movements to the left and right will block virtually all straight shots. To block bank shots, one pulls back quickly to the corners of the goal. This is known as the "triangle defense".
  • Shots are often hit out of "drifts", where the puck travels in set patterns designed to throw off the opponent's expectations and timing. The most popular drifts are the "center", "diamond", "diagonal", and "L".
  • Shots are often organized into "combos", meaning groups of shots which are hit with the same apparent delivery but opposite directions, caused by hitting the puck at slightly different locations on the mallet. For example, a transverse motion of the right arm can lead to a "cut shot" to the left corner of the opponent's goal or a "right wall under" (bank off the right wall, into the right corner of the opponent's goal).

Your touchpad is going. :( Outside of replacing it, you'll probably want to disable it and use an external wireless mouse. There are models now that have a tiny receiver than can be left in the USB port when the laptop is stored away. Not a fix, but a workaround.
