Question about Computers & Internet

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

Sound Driver of a Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC


Reinstallations of XP sometimes do not install all of the sound files needed. Do a google search for UAA, it is Microsoft's audio file. Download it, install it and then run Windows update. The drivers for your machine should be under the Hardware section of the updates.

Please send win98se driver for hp laptop model no. nx7300


Hello sir.

I understand that you need windows 98 drivers for your Notebook.

I have searched the HP website and found the drivers for the following operating systems.

Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP Home edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows Vista Home
Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise
Microsoft Windows Vista Business

But not for Microsoft Windows 98...

Windows 98 is considered to be obsolete now. As far as I know no one will provide drivers for this model Notebook for Windows 98. Please install atleast Windows 2000 in the Notebook for the drivers to work correctly.

For other operating system drivers other than Windows 98 could be found in the following link..
