Sony vaio all in one touchscreen stopped working


XP and Vista Normal Mode Start your computer as you normally would. Click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. Go to "C:\ Program Files\Sony\Setting Utility Series." Find and choose the "VCCPointingDevice" folder in the "Setting Utilities Series folder" to open the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Locate the "Enable" box on the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Check the box to enable the Vaio touchpad if you wish to use this device. Disable the touchpad if it is interfering with the external mouse. Uncheck the "Enable" box if you have a USB (PS/2) mouse connecting to your Vaio and wish to use that instead of the built-in touchpad. Pick "Yes, I'm Sure" when prompted to activate your choice, then close all the windows. Windows 7 Normal Mode Launch Windows as usual. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Mouse" > "Pointing Device" to open the Vaio touchpad control center. Uncheck the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you wish to use your external mouse. Check the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you want to use the Sony Vaio touchpad. Make sure the external mouse is not interfering with the touchpad if you have one connected. If so, unplug the mouse from your computer. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the "Pointing Device" window. Close all other windows. XP and Vista Safe Mode Restart your computer. Press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Add/Remove Programs." Find and delete all software for mice and pointing devices. Restart your computer in normal Windows mode. Proceed to next step if the problem persists. Restart your computer in Safe Mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Choose "Properties" on the drop-down list. Pick the "Device Manager" tab in the Properties window. Select the "Other Devices" folder and click on the "+" sign besides it. Delete all the devices under this "+" sign by clicking on the "Remove" button next to each of the items. Restart Windows in Normal Mode. Once Windows is operating, there will be a "New Hardware Wizard" pop-up that will load all the necessary drivers for the touchpad, mouse and other pointing devices. This should fix the corrupt driver for your Vaio touchpad. Windows 7 Safe Mode Reboot your computer and press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Device Manager" > "Mice and other pointing devices." Click the touchpad icon. Choose the "Driver" tab and press the "Uninstall" button. Press the "OK" button to confirm. Restart Windows in Normal Mode. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Device Manager" > "Mice and other pointing devices." Choose the "Driver" tab and press the "Update" button. Press the "OK" button to fix the touchpad software.

Touch screen not working


The touchpad on the Acer Aspire is built into the notebook itself, which makes the device much harder to troubleshoot or replace. While you can connect a universal serial bus mouse to the notebook if the touchpad becomes unresponsive, attaching any external device reduces the notebook's portability. Although hardware failure can cause the touchpad to stop working, most device-related problems are due to software settings or other conflicts.

Hardware Conflict
Peripheral devices connected to the Aspire can interfere with the integrated touchpad. Disconnect all of the external devices, except for the power adapter, that are connected to the Aspire; then restart the computer. Test the touchpad after booting into Windows. If the touchpad responds, a hardware device is interfering with the pointing device. Reconnect each device one by one to the notebook, testing the touchpad throughout. If the pointing device stops responding after connecting a particular device, the component is interfering with the touchpad. Go to the device manufacturer's website and look up the product model. Check the bulletin board to see if the manufacturer has posted a notice or update addressing issues with device conflicts. If no such update is available, download the latest driver for the component and install it on the computer. b> Disabled Touchpad b> The Acer Aspire 5516 comes with a preset group of keyboard combinations, called hotkeys, that are used to enable or disable devices, configure sound volume and screen brightness, and control the notebook mode. The hotkeys "Fn" and "F7" turn the touchpad on and off. If the integrated mouse is unresponsive, hold down "Fn" and press "F7"; then test the touchpad to see if the device reactivates. If the touchpad still doesn't work, open Device Manager from within the Control Panel. Expand "Mice and Other Pointing Devices," then right-click the touchpad device. If the touchpad is disabled in Device Manager, you'll see the "Enable" option in the context menu. Click it to turn the touchpad back on; then restart the computer. Corrupt Driver b> Windows Vista talks to the touchpad through a program called a device driver. The driver enables Windows Vista to "see" the touchpad and send it instructions. Once the driver communicates these instructions to the touchpad, the touchpad informs the processor that it needs to perform a task, and a specific set of code is performed. If the driver for the touchpad is outdated or corrupt, or if the driver isn't compatible with the OS -- Acer offers touchpad drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, but these drivers won't work with Windows Vista -- the touchpad becomes unresponsive. Expand the "Mouse and Other Pointing Devices" section from within Device Manager; if Windows detects a problem with the driver, it places a yellow exclamation point or red "X" next to the device. Double-click the touchpad driver to see the error message; then look up the message on the Microsoft Support website for further assistance. b> Touchpad Settings b> Mouse Properties, accessed through the Control Panel, contains several different configuration settings that can alter how the touchpad behaves on the Aspire 5516. On the "Device Settings" tab is the option "Disable Internal Pointing Device When External USB Pointing Device Is Attached." As the option states, if an external mouse is connected to the Aspire 5516, the touchpad will stop working; disable this option if you're using an external pointing device. Clicking the "Settings" button opens the "Properties for Synaptics Touchpad" window. On this screen are the "PalmCheck" and "Touch Sensitivity" options. If PalmCheck is set too high, or Touch Sensitivity too low, the touchpad won't respond to normal touch, making the device seem unresponsive. Hope this helps.

My computer is no sound..


There are 4 reasons I can think of why your computer doesn't have a sound.

1. Maybe the Audio Driver is not installed in your computer. To check that you can just go to the device manager.
- click start
- click run
- devmgmt.msc
- if you see any yellow question mark there, it's possible that one of the device that doesn't have a driver is your audio device

2. Possible that the device is disabled, you can also check on the device manager if it's enabled or not
- while you are in the device manager you will see a red x mark to a device that is disabled
- to enable that, right click it and click on enable

3. Possible that your speaker is faulty? you can try another speaker or a headset if you have, to test it.

4. Check the cables if they are properly plugged in.

The reasons that I just mentioned are the possibilities may have caused your problem. There are instances that people don't know that the volume on the computer is on mute. There maybe some other reasons that may occur. It's also possible that the audio device is faulty. It would be better if we check all the possibilities for us to pin point the root cause of the problem.

Hot keys are not working on my Asus laptop


http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wireless.mspx

This is because of
The Human Interface Device (HID) is not configured to wake the computer when you press a key on the keyboard or mouse.

RESOLUTION

Use Device Manager to troubleshoot possible hardware configuration problems on your computer
In Device Manager, look for marked problems with devices. If there is a problem with a device, it is listed in the hardware tree under Computer.

Additionally, the problem device has a symbol that indicates the type of problem, for example a black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field indicates the device is in a problem state. Note that a device that is in a problem state can function.

A red X indicates a disabled device. A disabled device is a device that is physically present in the computer and is consuming resources, but does not have a protected-mode driver loaded.

A blue i on a white field on a device resource, in Computer Properties, indicates that the Use Automatic Settings feature is not selected for the device and that the resource was manually selected. Note that this does not indicate a problem or disabled state.

At the top of the property sheet, there is a description of the device. When you click the Resource tab, the window in the middle of the tab indicates which resource types are available for the selected device.

The list box at the bottom contains a Conflicting Device list. This list indicates a conflict with an error code. If any devices are listed as having a conflict, disable the devices in Device Manager. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
2. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box, and then click OK.
3. Restart your computer

If no devices are listed as having a conflict, follow these steps to disable devices in Device Manager:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. On the Hardware tab, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.
3. On the Device Manager tab, disable all devices under the following branches:
• Display adapters
• Floppy disk controllers
• Hard disk controllers
• Keyboard
• Mouse
• Network adapters
• Ports
• PCMCIA socket
• SCSI controllers
• Sound, video, and game controllers

To disable a device in Device Manager, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to disable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to select the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box , and then click OK.
c. Restart your computer.
4. If the problem is resolved, enable the devices that you disabled in step 3, and then verify that no devices are conflicting.

Note Enable devices in the following order:
• COM ports
• Hard disk controllers
• Floppy disk controllers
• Other devices
To enable a device and look for possible conflicts, follow these steps:
a. Double-click the branch that contains the device that you want to enable, click the device, and then click Properties.
b. On the General tab, click to clear the Disable In This Hardware Profile check box.
c. Click the Resources tab, and then verify that there are no conflicts listed under the Conflicting Device List.

Note that the Resources tab does not appear for each device.
d. Click OK, and then restart your computer.
If this resolves the issue, contact the manufacturer to update the device driver. for the keyboard
