Re: Freezing Touch Pad
you have a couple of options here.
1:) check fujitsus website, as sometimes there are drivers specifically designed for touchpads. i.e ALps pointing devices et,c. download if possible and install.
2:) try connecting an external mouse.
3:) take to a computer repair specialist, or if your a competant person. search for downloading the service manual. and remove the touchpad, which usually involves, keyboard-removal. and seperating the touchpad from pickup panel below it.
i,d assume that the pad may have either a loose ribbon cable connection, or has suffered some fluid spillage damage.

Try to find a repair shop and tell them to diagnose your pad, because this is likely caused by a loose connector, and i would not recommend you disassembling it, because there is a high risk factor. Find a local repair shop, because they have a no damage gaurantee.
This could be either a driver glitch or the touch pad is going out, both are common on these models. Start by uninstalling the drivers for the touch pad (some times referred to as the synaptic pointing device), then restart the machine. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers automatically. If it's a simple glitch, this will fix it. If it persists, then the pad is failing and will need replaced. The only other thing you might try is to adjust the cursor speed or touch pad sensitivity from the control panel. This will sometimes help to dampen the effect, but usually won't get rid of it entirely.
This will be one of three things; 1- a driver glitch with the touch pad. Uninstall the drivers for the touch pad from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers automatically. You might also look at Compaq's support site for any updated drivers or patches for the touch pad. 2- You may have a loose connection. Remove the keyboard, check and clean the touch pad connection/connector. 3- A faulty touch pad. If the other two don't work, then disconnect the touch pad and try using the machine with an external mouse. If this works, then the touch pad has malfunctioned and needs replacing. Ty these and let me know.
