You need to re-install your Windows Operating System.
Do you have the CD that came with your computer?
If so, just put that in the CD drive and follow the instructions.
Note: you may loose your data. to keep your files, dont select any options that tell you to format the drive.

If no CD, you can order a cd from the manufacturer for your specific model by contacting them.

    Spilled Coffee on HP Laptop--miraculously it works with errors


    It depends on how damaged the keyboard is. Electronics get very touchy about such things. If you let it dry it may work, but there may be some circuitry damage. You may need to seek professional repair if the board doesn't start working. Also, you could get a new keyboard for it and install it yourself. Until you do this go get a desktop keyboard and that should get you by. Keep an eye out for other problems, the coffee may have gone deeper into the laptop and may have gotten onto the motherboard. Your files should not be in danger anymore, because it is somewhat hard for liquid to get into a hard drive (unless it causes a surge).

    NexxTech mouse... cursor wanders by itself


    Make sure that you do not have any items that have a blue tooth option around the mouse. It causes interference which the mouse receiver has to pick up causing it to wander to the top of the screen.

    My mx1000 likes the corner of the screen


    Check the batteries. Try changing them to see if this resolves the problem.

    Ensure that you have a good surface for the mouse to travel on and make sure that the receiver for the mouse hasn't fallen down the back of your desk etc as this will cause the cursor to jump around the screen.

    Hope this helps

    Cursor


    Hi, You may want to verify that the autoswitchoff (Allow the computer to turn off this device...) is disabled or grayed out; right click on my computer, click on Properties, click on the Hardware tab, click on the Device Manager button, expand your Mice and other pointing devices, right click on your mouse, click on Properties, click on the Power Management tab. You can also try updating the drivers. You can also do this on the USB Root Hub if your mouse is USB connected. Hope this works for you and post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
