Question about Toshiba Tecra M2 Notebook

2 Answers

Drifting 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.

Drifting of the mouse pointer is a well known occurance with laptops and is not something you can "fix" (occasionally you will be lucky and the manufacturer will release a patch, but this is very rare)

Where do I turn off my laptop


Power button is top left corner of keyboard above the "Esc" key.
If you are trying to shutdown from Windows 8, follow these steps:

1. Mouse over the little gadget in the lower right corner of the screen. (You can also move your mouse cursor to the upper left corner; same result. Or, you can press Windows-C on your keyboard.)
2. In the slide-out menu (known as the Charms Bar) that appears, click Settings.
3. Click the Power button, and then click your desired action: Sleep, Shut down, or Update and restart.

Dont turn on


A stuck on/off button will cause this.
On some laptops the button will drift to right or left and wedge under the top case; I have only seen this problem once.

Just installed windows 7 with an external cd/dvd and now it will only boot with the cd/dvd attached. otherwise a black screen appears with the cursor in the top left corner.


when it boots to a flashing cursor in the top left corner and everything else it working, this means that it is NOT finding the operating system on the hard drive, many times due to boot sector issues.
Make sure you set your hard drive to main or first startup device.

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.
