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)

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.

Cursor when using Logitech Trackball sometimes drifts up or down


I finally just was able to solve this problem! I saw somewhere that someone had made sure their primary mouse was selected under hardware, which got me thinking. I thought I had seen a second mouse option somewhere. So, I went into my Control Panel > System > Device Manager and click the arrow next to Mice and other pointing devices. Sure enough, there were two listed. A seemingly generic one and my Logitech I've been using. I right clicked on the generic one and chose disable and the drifting IMMEDIATELY stopped. I went so far as to re-enable that generic to see if it was a fluke because it had stopped drifting on its own yesterday, nope as soon as I enabled the generic device, drifting started again. So Happy!!!

Drifting belt.


Under the treadmill there are rollers at both ends. one of them is adjustable. If it rolls left and the adjustment is on the left side, tighten it. If adjust ment is on right loosen it. Do the opposite if it goes to the right.

Cursor drift


don't us the optic mouse with the roller mouse pad. what is happening here, is the optic trying locate a point. since the pad is not flat and smooth. the optic is doing search (meaning it is constantly looking for a landing point). since it can't fine one, it will draft.

hope that will help

Your convergence has drifted off. All CRT tech is high precision work, and needs touchups now and then.

Or your conv ICs could be out, and needing to be replaced.
