Hi, the problem here is your mouse. You have a bad driver or one wasn't loaded. Most of the time, this is a problem with an "off brand" mouse which will only work if the propriety drivers are loaded. You will need to either load the proper driver or try another mouse. I would try another if someone can lend you one.

Another thing could be that one of the buttons is stuck down on the mouse and when you pass over a link it acts like a double click and launches the site or the program.

Another thing to note: Is this a replacement mouse? Meaning that the original mouse died and this was it's replacement without loading drivers but actually, using the old drivers from the old mouse could cause issues. -Sorry if that sounds confusing-

How do I put sounds on the pad

What sounds?
Music can be placed, using iTunes on a PC or MAC. If you have installed iTunes on the computer (it is a free program), you can rip any CD on the computer, and it can add the music to your iPad.
For podcats, you can get audio for free on the net. and there are many more possibilities to get things on the iPad (Mini) for free. Don't forget to use the volume contral, as soon as you want to play anything. Knobs on the side, or swipe up, to open the control panel and swipe the volume to the right.

De-activate the touch pad on Thinkpad T61 model 6465. I have tried the control panel and it only provides for the mouse.

When you open mouse properties in control panel you should have tab Ultra Nav (look on the picture), click on it and unmark box Enable Touch Pad.


If this was helpful, please rate my answer :)

How do I manage the mouse pad sensativity on my VIAO notebok computer

You should be able to manage the touchpad (mouse pad) settings by going in to control panel --> Touchpad.(or "Dell Touchpad"). There you would find the touchpad settings where you could adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad.
Please let me know if you face issues finding the settings.

How do I set my touch pad to be less sensative to the pointer arrow on a Desktop Compaq V600?

You didn't mention which OS (or a specific touchpad) but in Windows most of the modifiable settings for a touchpad are in the mouse settings within the control panel. Many touchpad drivers will add an extra tab at the top of the mouse settings just for this purpose (in the case of Synaptics - Device Settings).

Dell Inspiron 6000 Alps Touchpad not working

Try unistalling the touchpad driver, and reboot. The machine will find the touchpad and reinstall the driver automatically. These have a tenancy to glitch when using an external mouse, and this should clear it up. Let me know.
