Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Hello I have purchased a Compaq Presario Notebook PC. It has windows vista on it and I have installed microsoft office 2003 on to it. I am having such trouble typing up basic documents in word. The curser shoots backwards while I am typing and inserts letters in work I have already written. I am a touch typer so I don't usually watch the screen, but I have had to with this. Sometimes while i am typing suddenly great chunks of written work that I have done get highlighted and deleted and the text i am typing inserted way up there in the document instead of where I want it to be. It is driving me crazy. It seems better if I can keep completely away from the touch pad, although any movement around it seems to set it going. I have tried to go in and change the sensitivity of the touch pad, but can't seem to find the right thing to do. I have also been in and slowed the speed of the curser movement thinking that this may stop it from shooting backwards either a few letters, a few lines, or whole paragraphs and inserting the new stuff I am writing. When I go back and look at my work, if I haven't monitored every word I have typed to check it is in the right place and reads what I want it to (not with other letters suddenly inserted randomly) I am shocked and horrified at what it has concocted while I have been typing. How can I rectify this problem - is it a cursor and touchpad sensitivity problem, or something that needs to be sorted out on vista. I'd appreciate it if you could give me some directions of what to do and how to change the settings if this is required. Thanks a lot

Usually means you are pressing your touchpad whilst you are typing.
if you go onto control panel
and find the mouse option
you should be able to set it so that whilst you are typing the mouse will dissapear and then you wont have the problem

Need recovery disc for compaq presario SR1920NX


go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3184154

If you don't want to purchase the recovery disks you may want to just install a 'generic' windows xp, Vista, or Windows 7 and download the drivers you need (if not included in the generic installation) and install the computer's unique drivers.

Try using the Office 2003 removal tool. Just download the Office 2003 Editions Resource Kit at this link. It's called ork.exe:

After it's installed followed these directions:

To locate the tool, click the Start button, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office, point to Microsoft Office Tools, point to Microsoft Office Resource Kit, and then click Removal Wizard.

Then follow the on screen instructions that will walk you through the removal. After Office is completely removed, restart and try to reinstall.

Hope this helps!

Claification to my problem with compaq pressario


Hi. Azrul here. Here is 2 of my best solution for your problem:

1. Online support from your PC's manufacturer. Restart your PC using a Windows XP/Vista CD and download all the related drivers for your PC online (you will need your compaq presario model number for this)

2. There is also an option to purchase the restore disc online. Depending on the age of the PC that you purchased, just google for "Compaq" or "Hewlett-Packar"and get the restore disk from there.

I guess they were asking for the Office serial... Microsoft provides serials but for time-limited trial versions.Go to:

and get one of those serials.
To get a non-limited version, you would have to buy Office online.

Are you sure you have Microsoft Office installed on your computer? You need to install Microsoft Office first if you don't have one. You need to purchase an MS Office CD.
