SOURCE: close lid of laptop without shutting down system

You have to configure what laptop do when the lod is closed . go to Control Panel , Power Options , Advanced . In this tab you will see an option " When I close the lid " and a drop down menu just choose do nothing and press ok . It will not shut down your laptop when lid is closed .

Hit the Fn (funtion key) HOLD it down WHILE pushing the F7 Key - this will turn your touchpad back on.

Toshiba satellite L750-iq6 won't shut down or sleep?!?


That is a software issue with the OS. Was it always like this? If not, try a system restore to some time in the past when you know the unit was working fine.

Cursor jumps all over the place! Cursor "arrow" shifts to cursor "four-arrrow" then decides to change zoom level all on its own. Cursor disappears, is nowhere on the screen then...


The Touchpad is the cause. Although some work fine for years others jump the the pointer every time you type (or sneeze). You can turn the touchpad off if you have a mouse for the laptop. Otherwise, you might need to exchange/purchase another model laptop.

When i type in my MS word or replying mail using outlook, my cursor jumps to somewhere, actually it just happened several times when i type this message


On your touch pad exists a place that works like a scroller on the mouse (Usually the right part of pad with white lining). When you rest your wrists in this area, the cursor usually jumps in another place. I'm of course hoping that this is the problem and that your touch pad works fine. Try it and please tell me if this fails..

I have a Sony Vaio VGN CS290. Just a few minutes ago the touchpad and the buttons were working properly. However, I suddenly cannot make a click/double click from both the touchpad and the left click...


This sounds like a hardware issue, however, you can do some troubleshooting steps:

First solution: Go to the mouse settings.
On the "buttons" tab, go to the "double click speed" area.
Slide the cursor all the way to fast and try clicking on the folder with your left mouse button,
If it opens easily, your button should be working.
If not, try sliding cursor all the way to slow.

Second solution: Download the latest touchpad driver from Sony Vaio website support drivers page and type in your laptop serial number and try to reinstall the touchpad pointer driver and restart the system.

Third solution: please perform a system restore, how to perform a system restore press and hold down the windows key on your keyboard and press the R key after that a window will pop up, in that command box type "rstrui" without colon and you will see the system restore page click next and you will see several dates, now select the date where your computer was working fine and then click next and proceed with the system restore, please note that system restore will not delete any data or files but it will uninstall only the programmes which you have installed on or after the date which you have selected to restore.

If none of these works try connecting a mouse and see if all the clicks are working fine and if that is working fine then it has something to do with the hardware of the click button of the laptop I would suggest you to take it to the service center and get it replaced it won't cost much.

Touchpad cursor is freezing up


Sounds like your low on memory, very low in other words it's dipping onto the hard drive to help with the mouse. upgrade the memory or use a less intensive antivirus, like nod32 or a free one like Microsoft security essentials.

Cursor stops working when power cord is plugged in...


It sounds as if the power coming through your ac adapter may be causing interference with the touchpad, meaning perhaps an electrical signal is crossing into your mouse or disrupting its signals.

You could try to download the latest drivers for your touchpad and see if that fixes the issue.

You should also (if you haven't already) try a different mouse to see if the issue is related to the mouse sub system, or the touchpad itself.

If possible, try a different AC Adapter to see if that may be the issue.
