Unplug everything except the power cord, including the following:

Speakers
Printers
Scanners
USB devices
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
USB flash drive or other external storage devices
External Monitor
External Keyboard
External Mouse
If your computer is attached to a docking station, undock it.



Make sure the touchpad or your finger has no dirt, grease, liquids or food on it (the touchpad has to make a good contact with your finger to work correctly).


Turn the computer back on and retest the touchpad.

When the touchpad still does not work correctly proceed to step 5.

When the touchpad does work correctly, attach one external device at a time and test the touchpad to see which one may have caused the issue.



Make sure the latest driver for the touchpad is installed (you may need to use a external USB or Bluetooth mouse), for more information refer to:

Team promark keyboard won't work


If it has a USB plug, try attaching it through a different port hub, i.e. not the usb port right next to the one that didn't work. If that doesn't work, test the usb port with something else first. If the USB port is not the problem, you may need to download a driver for the keyboard.

I used a PS/2 Keyboard and one day it stopped working. And I found out that when it's installed even the mouse doesn't work, so I bought a new USB keyboard though I can't enter the BIOS with it...


Hi, you maybe just need a driver for the mainboard.

You can download here:

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/driver.php?S_ID=363

Try the chipset driver first.
Please unzip the file before installation.
You maybe also need the driver for the usb controller.

Try to use a PS/2 mouse until the driver is installed.

The ASUS sdre-08d1s-u is not burning cds. Common problems? fixes?


I have the exact same unit, and after about 100 burns the little guy gave out on me. If it isn't burning, I would recommend going into your device manager on your computer and checking to see if your USB hub is functioning properly. In that doesn't work, or you don't find any issues, try plugging it into a different machine to check and see if your computer is the one at fault. Often, the motor itself is the damaged unit, rather than the internal workings, so the computer says it's working fine, and lo and behold, the drive won't work. If that doesn't work out for you, then unfortunately it sounds like you're out of luck, and it would be cheaper to just purchase a new one.

I bought an Imation Apollo II (320GB) and had it formatted for my macbook in the store I bought it. It has worked fine up until 2 days ago. Now, when plugged in, it says only 'the disk you inserted was...


Hello barry_carrot,

I work for Imation and we would advise you to try the following option:
restart to your Macbook without the external drive attached.
Open your Disk Utility (in your Applications/Utilites folder).
Plug in your hard drive.
If the drive shows up in the list in the Disk Utility First Aid window, click on the drive, and then click on Repair Disk. If the process repairs anything, run the same Repair Disk a second time to see that it runs with no problems found. If some other error comes up, or it won't repair a problem found, then I would recommend moving this drive to a PC, and trying a repair tool through Windows.

Note: if you see the "repair" option grayed out, Going back to Disk Utility - (you won't be able to select Verify/Repair Disk Permissions), but Verify or Repair Disk should be available if you click on the device (the entry showing the manufacturer's info for your external drive).

If that doesn't help you, please contact the Imation product support department at the phone number 1-800-351-8186 option 2.

My mouse is lock need help please


Good day there, glad to be of assistance to you today.
What kind of mouse is it? Is it a bluetooth mouse with batteries?
1.Is it a regular usb mouse with lights on it? If so, please check if you've got lights on the mouse,it means it's being detected by the notebook. 2.Please shut down your computer first, as soon as the the computer turns off, unplug and plug the mouse back in then power it back on. 3.If that doesn't work, try plugging it to a different usb port and restart the notebook. If it's the same issue, please check if the mouse will work on another notebook when plugged in.
I hope this has helped you resolve your concern. Have a wonderful day.
