Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an HP Pavilion dv5224 laptop. pe I find that when I ty at a clip, things like what just happened (my cursor somehow jumps to another place in the para--from ty to 1st line pe). This happens pretty frequently, and usually when I'm typing fast--not slow. It is very annoying. I can't figure out why it does this. I am not inadvertently hitting any of the arrow keys--they are far down on the right. It might be related to the space bar, however.

Does your laptop have touchpad that acts as a mouse if you don't have a mouse plugged in (it's usually directly below the spacebar)? If any part of your hand accidentally brushes that sensitive rectangular area, it will cause the mouse cursor to jump around.

There is usually a button you can push at the top of the rectangular touchpad to turn it off while you're typing. On my HP laptop it has a blue light, and when I push the button it turns red.

How do i replace and where do i find the bios battery in hp 754n pavilion


Usually called the CMOS battery, Usually a CR2032 (Liion battery - circular bright silver/nickel coating, about the size of a 10p piece)

Found on the motherboard, kept in place by a small spring clip, press a screw driver against the clip. If still unsure, have a search on YOUTUBE, there'll be a video there.

When I tap on the touch pad on a HP Pavilion dv7 cursor jumps


The touchpad is installed on HP notebook PCs.
You can "tap" and "double tap" your touchpad with your finger, and interact with the operating system in exactly the same way as clicking and double clicking on your mouse.
When using touchpad on your notebook PC, the cursor may jump, flicker, or double-click by itself.

Follow the recommendations in that HP document, or "disable" the TouchPad, if you don't like what it does.

When I power on my HP Pavilion a1220n, the HP symbol comes up on the monitor, then it goes to a black screen with a smll blinking cursor for a few seconds, then...NOTHING. The power stays on but the screen...


You could check to see if the memory chips inside have dirty contacts. Happens often, basically you unplug it, remove the side cover, find the memory chips, try to remove them but basically just work them in and out a couple times to clean the contact points, reinstall and it might work. This happened to mine this am, worth a try.

Blinking cursor


Try new memory. That has fixed a problem I had with a different computer. But might work.

Hope this helps.

HP Optical Mouse Curser jumps around


I respectfully disagree with amusedgeek. He is correct aout the textured surface,though.Optical mice will take snapshots many times a second and reposition the cursor according to where the pattern was last. Rather than a single color, a pattern is your best bet for an optical mouse. The only thing I recommend is to make sure the mousepad isn't reflective at all- no glossy or semi-glossy surface. You want it to be non-reflective. Just to be sure there is nothing wrong with the mouse, you can test it simply by putting it on a newspaper and scrolling around.

My laptop will start then when i click the icon to type my password it just freezes the only way to start it is in safe mode...also when i try to restore it just freezes laptop: HP pavilion dv2000


The system cannot cope up the installed programs in your laptop. When you boot in safe mode try uninstalling new installed software or unneeded software then restart your laptop and try again booting normally.. TY
