Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I sent my computer in to get the keyboard fixed, and now the touch pad isn't working right. It won't scroll and won't maximize/minimize the screen. I've gone into control panel-view devices and printers, right clicked on the computer, went to mouse settings and enabled everything. Even adjusted the sensitivity, but I still can't scroll or maximize/minimize the screen via touch pad. Help?

SOURCE: Shortage?

There is a ribbon cable between the laptop & the screen. It sounds like you have a short in that cable. If you're not good with tedius electronic repairs, it would be best to have a shop repair it.

You could try and re install the touchpad drivers, that should bring the option back.
You could also try uninstalling the touchpad from device manager, windows will pick the device up automatically and try and reinstall it.
Right click on computer / manage / device manager

15 Best Windows 7 Tips and Hacks


1. Use Keyboard Shortcuts Using the mouse, you can drag-‘n-dock windows to either side of the screen, or drag it to the top to maximize it. These keyboard shortcuts are even faster:
  • Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock the window to the left and right side of the screen
  • Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximize and restore/minimize
  • Win+M minimizes everything
  • Alt+Up, Alt+Left Arrow, Alt+Right Arrow navigate to parent folder, or browse Back and Forward through folders in Explorer
  • Win+Home minimizes/restores all open windows except the active window
  • Alt+Win+# accesses the Jump List of program number ‘#’ on the taskbar

The scroll bar in my laptops' touch pad isn't working.


The scroll on your laptop is controlled by the trackpad installed on the system.

If you are having problems with the scroll on your laptop's trackpad, there is something you can do before you take it into a computer repair shop.


Updating the driver to the trackpad will enable the scroll if it is not working at all.

Once the driver is updated, your scroll should work again.


You can access the driver through the Device Manager on your laptop.


Click the "Start" button, then click the "Search" option.


Type "Device Manager" into the search bar and press the "Enter" button.

Click on the "Device Manager" icon from the menu, then scroll down to the "Track Pad" icon on the left side of the screen.


Click on the icon, then click the "Driver" tab at the top of the window. Click the "Update" driver option from the window.


Wait for the new driver to install on your computer.


This should take about two minutes to complete.

A window will appear telling you that the driver has been installed.


Put your fingers on the touchpad to move the mouse around on the screen.


Hope this helps.

My email messages don't cover my full screen


First, make sure that the window is maximized. (The button in the top right corner between minimize and maximize.) If this doesn't fix the solution, then it could be how the message was sent - some emails are sent such that they will not extend, but rather stay how they were on the senders computer. Best Wishes!

Screen minimizes when using the touch pad


If you touch the top right corner of the touchpad, it restores down the window you are currently in. The bottom right corner of the touchpad minimizes the window you are currently in. The bottom left corner of the touch pad brings up the start menu.

THE 4-way scroll button IN MY ASPIRE 5100 DOESNT WORK


Double click the icon in the toolbar. Click the device settings tab and then hit setting. select buttons in the list on the left side. Hit the plus sign(maximize) and select scroll up button action....scroll down button action...Etc. For each action select what you want it to do and just hit apply and move to the next. Once you have selected the action for scroll up, down , left, and right hit apply again just to be sure and try it. It should work. I just did it on my 5630 but Im assuming it works the same.
