Question about Toshiba Tecra M1 PC Laptops

1 Answer

Cursor only moves left to right

When I try to use the eraser mouse on my keyboard the cursor will only move left to right. If I connect a mouse with a cable it works fine. Must be a problem with the eraser mouse. Suggestions?

    I have the same problem.
    On a Dell Latitude D610.
    Control nipple only moves mouse up and down.
    HOWEVER, logging in as another user works fine.
    Try this - create a new user on the local machine, log in as them, and see if it works... This will knock the hardware out of the equation...
    All I need to do now is find the registry setting that this relates to!

This device is monitored via a kind of strain gauge; that is why it does not seem to move; it does move but not noticeably.
If it is no longer responsive in one or the other direction, I would call it dead.
I have never seen one of these loose but I would expect to find a small sealed housing that has an equally small, multicontact connector attached.
If you are unlucky, Toshiba may have attached this to the keyboard's platform requiring the replacement of it as a unit.

On most laptops, the keyboard is fairly easy to remove and if you can accomplish that, restoring the truncated joy stick is probably not difficult.
Sorry I cannot give you detailed instructions for disassembly.

Acer Laptop Help


To get started with this product, complete the following steps.
Turn the laptop on by pressing the Power button located above the keyboard.
Locate the touchpad.
You use the touchpad much like you would use a mouse.
The touchpad controls your cursor.
It responds as you move your finger across its surface.
Move your finger across the touchpad to move the cursor.


Locate the bar below the touchpad.
This bar may be used for selecting and has left and right-click functions that you can use a mouse.
Clicking on the right end of the bar has the same effect as right-clicking with a mouse.
Clicking on the left end of the bar has the same effect as left-clicking with a mouse.
Tapping the touchpad is the same as clicking the left end of the bar.

Use the keyboard like you would use a desktop keyboard.
The only difference is that the keyboard of an Acer laptop is smaller than a regular laptop keyboard.
Click on the Windows icon in the lower left side of the screen to access programs.
Make sure your wireless switch is turned on, if you want to access the Internet.
Then locate a wireless network.
Windows may automatically detect and display a list of available networks.
If that happens, you only have to select the network you wish to access.
If it is not your network, you may need a password if it is security-enabled.
If Windows does not automatically detect a network, open Internet Explorer, and follow the on-screen instructions to connect to a wireless network.

When I try to plug in an external Mouse my Acer Aspire One is asking me to download hidusb.sys from the XP Home Edtion Service Pack 3 CD?


I'll assume your touchpad and built-in mouse are not working, hence your need for the USB mouse. If the touch pad and built-in mouse are working but you find them awkward to use (another reason some users connect USB mice to notebooks), then you might find it easier to briefly persevere and use the touchpad and built-in mouse for only a few seconds just to complete the simple steps outlined below. If not, the keyboard method detailed below is less efficient and more cumbersome but equally effective.
This driver that is being requested is already built-in to Windows. Use the TAB and down or up arrows keys on your keyboard to move the cursor to the button you want to activate -> press the ENTER key to activate the button that the cursor has settled on keys on your Click Next -> No (to alternative search methods) -> search the whole computer for the driver -> next -> finish -> if your USB mouse does not work straight away, press the windows logo key bottom left of your keyboard -> the use the keyboard arrow keys to move once up and then left to the shutdown button -> press ENTER -> use the arrow keys to move the cursor to RESTART -> press ENTER.

Automatically cursor jumps . When we type in the cursor automatically moves fromm one place to another


Hi,
I presume you have a touchpad under your keyboard.
Usually the hand position when you type is such, that it's very easy to involuntarily lighlty touch the touchpad with the base of your thumb, usually the right one, when you move the hand over the touchpad, mostly in the up-left direction.
This causes the cursor to move to some other place, usually up and to the left, resulting in the next characters you type being put in that place :)
Try to keep your hands a little bit more above the touchpad when you type. Also, many touchpad drivers have settings for ignoring light touches/drags, try looking into these settings in your pointing device properties.
As an aid, I would recommend a soft gel wrist support, which automatically elevates your palms above the keyboard.

Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

Dell d600 mouse pointer jumps into corners if working on documents etc.; maybe if the system stores data in the cache or ram, the cursor wether jumps into the left down corner or moves slowly in directon...


What the issue is, is the eraser head mouse in the enter of the keyboard. When you type, it's putting uneccessary pressure on it, and it makes the pointer move. The only solution I know for this is to get the updated ALPS driver for the mouse, and disable the eraserhead (The updated driver gives you an option to do this), thereby using only the touchpad mouse.
