Question about HP Pavilion dv2500t Notebook

Not responding Everytime I go to close the internet explorer it says not responding and closes and restarts a new window. This happens with every window. Also in the middle of surfing the web, it suddenly stops responding. There is another problem I'm having with the mouse,it moves on its own, it opens things i don't want open. When I go to the right side of the screen, for example, the mouse is all over the screen. It's kind of like the enter button is stuck or something

Do you get the IE problem if you start IE without addons? (Right click on the IE icon on your desktop to see that option.) If it disappears when the addons are disabled, please provide a list of addons that you have loaded. Also run antivirus and anti-malware scans (spyware, too) - those can be an issue. I've found several addons that my antivirus program flagged. Routine disk maintenance (cleaning up unneeded files, defragmentation and check disk) may rule out Page file and other Windows related issues.

Do you have a wired or wireless mouse? With wired mice, the issue tends tobe age. Try cleaning it in case there is something in the contacts. (If it's a ball mouse, clean that too.) More often it's damage to the wire or the connection. If it's a USB mouse, try plugging it into a different port. A new mouse may be a cheap and effective fix.

The Internet Explorer issue could be a lot of different things, but the first thing I usually look at when someone has an IE that's acting flaky is whether or not they have a bunch of toolbars and add-ons installed.

Are you using IE 7.0? If so, go to Tools --> Manage Add-Ons --> Enable or Disable Add-Ons

Disable all toolbars.

If you aren't using IE 7.0, try upgrading to IE 7.0.

As far as the mouse issue... do you have an external mouse that you're using, or are you using the touchpad that's located below the spacebar? Sometimes people that are using a separate mouse forget to turn the touchpad off, and accidentally brush it with their hand, causing the mouse cursor to jump around or activate an icon and such.

Hang up internet explorer not responding


If you use Internet Explorer you may experience issues where the browser freezes, hangs up and stops responding.


Although many things can cause the browser to stop responding, if the problem persists there are a few troubleshooting techniques that you can use to fix the problem.


Troubleshooting Internet Explorer may require you to perform a few steps or several, depending on the cause of the problem.

Click "Start," choose "All Programs" and click on the "Windows Update" option.

A new window will appear.


Click the "Check for updates" link on the left side of the window.

Windows will connect to the internet and search for updates for your system.


Click the "Install updates" button on the right side of the window.

Windows will automatically download and install any updates it finds.


Restart your computer, if prompted.


Delete Temporary Internet Files


Click "Start" and select "Control Panel."


Click the "Network and Internet" selection then click on "Internet Options."

The Internet Properties dialog box will appear.


Click the "Delete" button beneath the "Browsing history" section.

A new window will appear.


Place a check-mark next to "Temporary Internet files" and click "Delete."

Allow the computer to delete the temporary internet files then close the Internet Properties dialog box.


Remove Problematic Add Ons


Click "Start" and enter "Internet Explorer" into the Windows search bar.


Click on "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)" when it appears in the list.

Internet Explorer will launch with no add-ons running.


Click "Tools" on the right side of the browser and select "Manage Add ons."

A pop up window will appear.


Click on "Toolbars and Extensions" beneath the "Add on Types" section on the left side of the window.

A list of add ons will appear on the right side of the window.


Scroll through the list of installed add-ons and locate third party add ons that you've recently installed.

Note that you can look at the "File date" for a date of when you installed the add on.

Look for add ons that you installed at approximately the same time you began experiencing issues with Internet Explorer not responding.


Click on any suspected problematic add-ons and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the window. Close "Internet Explorer (No Add ons)" and restart the browser normally.


Verify that disabling the add-on fixes the problem.

If not, repeat this section and disable another recently installed add on until you fix the problem.


Hope this helps.

The ie is not responding


This may be caused by a Third party addon. Please reset the IE settings to disable add-ons:
1. Close any IE or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.

2. Open a new IE window.

3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.

5. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.

6. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.

7. Close IE. (The changes will take effect the next time you open IE.)

My internet window will not close when I x out. It does not respond and will ask after a few minutes if i want to close the program, causing all internet windows to close. Please help!


From what I understand you are now using a new version of Internet explorer or Firefox or chrome browser, all of which use something called tabbed browsing. These browsers open multiple pages in one window as tabs. (Earlier versions of Internet explorer used to open each pages individually, and using the close button will only close that particular window). In tabbed browser each tabs can be closed. If you try to use the close button on the top right hand corner, it will ask whether you want to close all the tabs and close all tabs if answered in affirmative. To close individual tabs click on that particular tab and you will see a small X on the right hand side of that tab. Use it and only one tab will be closed.

Explorer problem


Hi

I suggest to restore the settings of your internet explorer to defaults. There could be bugs during your windows update.

1. Open internet explorer, go to tool --> Internet Options ---> Advanced tab ---> Reset.

Reset all the settings then restart your computer. In case you cannot open internet explorer because it will just give you a white blank page. try the following steps below.

1.1a Click Start -- type msconfig on start search box (for vista only). Click Run (for xp only). a pop up box window will show up (System utility configuration). Look for the tab Services.

Under services tab, put a check on the box that says "Hide all microsoft services" at the very bottom screen. Click apply then close. Restart the computer.

After restarting the computer follow step 1.

Keep me posted

Regards
