A single key failure on a portable is almost always a mechanical failure of the keyboard itself. The good thing is keyboards are generally cheap and easy to replace.

Touchpad stopped working cannot move pointer arrow around screen


Hi,

Just check for the key combination on your key board (ex. Fn + F4 or F5..depends on the what key was designed for the touchpad), the touchpad might be locked.

If it is not locked, reinstall the touchpad driver, but it this still doesn't work, boot to Safe Mode to check if it does. Touch pad still not responding in Safe Mode would mean hardware failure.

Hope this helps.

I have a LG E300 notebook and once i switch it on it responds for a while and then freezes, then changes to blue screen saying: Problem occured so windown has shut down to prevent damage: After few hours...


Hi,
It can be caused due to any driver clash or antivirus . With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.

Display driver stopped responding


For this issue , You need to boot in safe mode by tapping F8 key and go to safe mode with networking (As internet works in this mode). Try installing the Driver again from the following website "http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_179.48_beta.html"

OR click on the following link


javascript:%20checkAgreement('http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload/download_confirmation.asp?kw=&url=http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/179.48/179.48_notebook_winxp_32bit_beta.exe');

Hope it works.
Cheers
