Preferred Solution: Touch pad doesn't function

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

After installing Windows7 the scroll function doesn't work anymore.

New driver are installed - doesn?t work
I tried to install driver of vista - doesn?t work
FN + F9 are activated.

I don?t know what the problem could be.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Answer:Satellite U400 - touch-pad scroll function doesn't work

> New driver are installed - doesn?t work
Have you installed Synaptics touchpad driver?

Open Synaptics properties and check if this option is activated properly.

By the way: FN+F9 has nothing to do with this specific option. Using this key combination you can just enable/disable touchpad in general.

Hi Guys, I recently knew from my older brother that there's an option to disabled the touch pad, while using the laptop with the mouse. Because my touch is extra sensitive that when I'm working at times my palm touches it, and it transfers the cursor anywhere. But I like the sensitivity though because when I don't have a mouse, I can tap lightly twice and it opens the files or the links. But since using Fn+F6 for a week, I lost the sensitivity on my touch pad. I need to press hard once to click or open links or files. I tried modifying the touchpad sensitivity option, but no avail. Please help me, I'm a freelance worker and at times I don't work with a mouse.  Thanks,Brent

Anybody have any idea how to get the touch function to work? I have the multitouch/multiview screen (brand new as of yesterday) Thinkpad X61 tablet & can't figure out for the life of me how to get the touch function to work. The stylus pen works fine but I would have bought the superview screen if I knew the touch function on this was this hard to use. I can't find a touch panel settings utility to adjust settings referred to in the manual - anybody have any idea where it might be hiding?

Answer:Mutli-touch screen touch function ?

Never mind about this question. I'm very embarassed to say I just realized I have the SXGA screen, not the MT-MV screen after all. (No, I am not blonde)Message Edited by Leilani on 05-05-2008 09:16 AM edit: In my defense the model I purchased online at the Lenovo Outlet clearly says it was multi-touch-multiview on the specs I downloaded of the particular pre-built machine I selected & put into my cart. The nearly-indecipherable packing list which came with the tablet which was actually shipped to me seems to indicate indicates it is a Superview ("SXGATFT"). YIKES! I guess now I need to investigate what other specs vary.Message Edited by Leilani on 05-05-2008 09:41 AM

I have a T43, one day  i cleaned the fan but then found its left button of touch pad and touch point doesn't work  anymore, i tried switching the left and right button funtion on the OS and then the left still doesn't work. Firstly, i think it may because wrong connection, so i detach the cover and reconnect all connectors...but soon find the Wireless Adapter which is fitted under the touch pad doesn't work well...Once i installed the driver for WLAN,  the OS is frozen and even i disabled the WLAN from OS, the OS is still forzen frequently.  Now i have to install a new OS and don't install drivers for WLAN, in addition, The LAN adapter works well.  During the reconnection, i cleaned the gold finger of WLAN using IPA...is it the root cause? wish sb can help me.

Answer:touch pad and touch point left button doesn't work,T43

Cleaning the WLAN shouldn't have caused the problem.  Recently someone posted on this site or thinkpads.com with a similar problem.  Do a search on both sites.

Hello I have a dell 14 5000 5459 and I want to activate the touch screen but not 'how. If someone knows a solution very grateful in advance.Greetings.

Answer:How to enable the touch function?

It will be active by default - no intervention or activation necessary.
If it's not, open PC Settings, then This PC and System - check to see whether a touch panel is listed.  If it's not, and it's never worked, the system doesn't have a touchscreen.  If the touchscreen did work at some point, but isn't now -- and no changes were made (i.e., the OS wasn't reinstalled), then chances are the touch panel has failed.

My touch screen function stopped working about a year after buying this laptop. One day it was working fine, and the next it just stopped working. 
I have spent hours on google trying to find a solution to this issue and nothing seems to be working. In fact, under system information, it says 'No Pen and Touch Input is available for this display.' when I know full well I've been using the touch screen function for over a year just fine.  
I have another laptop, same make and model just bought it 3 months later. I've been to the Device Manager under Human Interface Devices where it is supposed to have 'HID Compliant touch Screen' there is nothing there that has anything to do with a Touch Screen.
Can someone please help me with this? I payed for the touch screen function and Its driving me nuts to not be able to use it.  

Answer:Touch and Pen function is missing

Hi NoFear89,Can you Private Message me your Service Tag on the system? Or at least let me know the model number and OS the system is running. Also, does your other system show the touch screen in Device Manager correctly, or are both not showing this?Best regards,Brad

The touch function keys are much more difficult to use than the mechanical keys on previous models. You have to be accurate, you have to watch, you have to touch for long enough.  And the adaptive smarts often replace the function keys with other keys at the wrong time.  The Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch would be perfect if it had mechanical function keys.

Here's the problem. On 21 June 2011, my laptop was infected with a malware called "Mal_Otorun1". I have trend micro security and only trend micro security and it kept popping up every couple of seconds to warn me of the otorun1 affecting two files in my system called D:/autorun.inf and R:/autorun.inf and that the threat had been removed. After I closed the warning, it still pops up seconds later to inform me about the same threat in the same file. It has been doing so for almost half an hour and stopped after i installed windows defender from the net. When i review the log of trend security (clocking in to 824 threats stopped, in total), i found out that one of the infection was a trojan horse virus with the signature "TROJ_GEN.R4FB1CI", probably downloaded from the malware, and three cookie with the signature "Cookie_2o7" which affected the following three files: "serving-sys.com", "2o7.net" and "msnportal.112.2o7.net". Trend security removed every threat except the trojan virus and only denied it's access. Three days later, I slowly lost function of my right button touch pad, and now it's gone completely. Through advice from the net, I downloaded malewarebytes and did a full scan and found two "Trojan Agents" in my registry values, I removed the trojan virus and restart my laptop but the right button function is still lost.

I have read through every thread on similar topics, and tried every possible fix. I have rebooted, rebooted into Safe Mode, unplugged the battery, run the computer to 0%, booted a different OS, unplugged the CMOS and discharged all records, checked the BIOS settings, uninstalled every conceivable USB driver, and run every dialog and troubleshooter Windows has to offer. My issue is with a Lenovo U430 Touch (i7-4500U) running Windows 8.1 64-bit. It was purchased about two years ago. It has the original Windows installation on a hybrid drive, and the only modifications since purchase were a M.2 SSD and a RAM upgrade to 8GB, none of which coincided with this issue. The two USB 2.0 ports on the right side of the laptop (next to the charging port) no longer function. They will charge "dumb" devices, like batteries, but will not recognize USB devices. For instance, on Android devices, they believe that they're being charged from "AC Charger" rather than a "USB Port." However, Windows notices certain events related to them. When I plug a flash drive into the lower USB2 port, Windows gives the following error message: "Problem Detected with Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed), and on the "View details" page, the General tab shows the following:  Device type: Universal Serial Bus ControllersManufacturer: (Standard USB Host Controller)Location: Port_#0004.Hub_#0003

I hope someone here can help me out. What I have cobbled together is a CCTV system that I want to make even better.I have a CCTV image going into a DVR. It then goes to my lap top for viewing. What I'd like to do is perhaps send the image to a small computer or tablet first if needed, and then to a touch screen monitor where I can annotate or circle a portion of the live image ( or frozen ) very much like you see during a sporting game. Team members movements,etc.This system is used in the field and I'd like to keep it as portable as possible.Is there just software I need to obtain,a pre-fab monitor that has this feature,or what are my options?Thank you for your help as I need to find a good working answer.

Answer:I need help with an upgrade to a touch screen monitor function?

A way to do it with a frozen image would be a screenshot and then mspaint which with a touch screen would be able to draw on the screenshot in say a yellow paint brush to mimic what you see on football games when they show the plays on TV.Without lots of programming, I am unaware of any software out there that is free or low cost that gives this feature to home users without the mimic of a screenshot opened in mspaint and touch screen controlling the paintbrush.To get the screenshot you can have live video feed and press the ( Print SCRN ) button to grab a snapshot of the screen, and then create a shortcut on the desktop to mspaint and launch that and paste the screenshot to paint and then you can write on it with paintbrush with finger and a touch display.To make it more advanced you could use a macro creator to turn a hot key on your computer, a key you might not use on a regular basis such as tilde key ( ~ ) into a capture, launch mspaint, and paste the image to paint a 1 keystroke feature.Maybe others here have a better method, but thats all I can come up with. As far as the laptop getting the video feed from CCTV and being mobile, you would have to go with wireless transmission of video and you would be limited to range, and the cost would be expensive. Cheapest would be a camera rolling that is attached to the laptop to USB and grabbing a still of it and drawing on that such as if your out in a field and took an image of it and wanted to draw and point out where for peo...

I have a problem using the Yoga 2 Pro with an regular external monitor while the lid of the laptop is fully closed. After about 20 minuts the cursor and other things start acting weard. I noticed that perhaps heat from the keyboard controlls the closed screen with random movements, just like as if I touch the screen. That means that i can use the Lenovo only opened, but on my clean desk I like to be able to use it closed (with my external monitor).

Kindly be informed that when you close the lid in any mode ( sleep, Do nothing, etc ) the screen is going off , as long the LCD is getting touched when you close it so it might be the LCD switch cable issue , but i would recommend if you can do the recovery and then check if the machine can work normally or not

Hi all,
I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 7537 with full HD touch screen / 16gb ram / 1tb hdd / Nvidia GT750 and this laptop is just lovely, though I dont suffer from the usual wifi issue, I did changed the wifi card into 7260 AC model and it does fly! got it for 28$ off ebay.
Anyway, there's only 1 thing that bother me much, right after the initial setup, I've run through the updates and after restart I noticed that I've lost the touch support function. Even when checked on the PC and Devices info page, suddenly doesnt state my laptop has touch support. I've been through the net for many days looking for drivers and this issue but none came close to my case.
The monitor driver stated as generic PNP monitor? and I couldnt find any compatible driver for it. I've look at control panel setting and there is no option for pen / touch input too.
Not sure where and what went wrong. Attached is 2 print screen of my system. For security reason, I've cropped the product ID. Should there is someone from Dell require those, I'd be happy to send private message with all the details.
For my part, I've done all diagnosed with dell website + software but keep saying my system is correct and no problem with anything. Though I dont really fancy of using the touch screen, it would be nice to know that my laptop has it and its working.

Many thanks

Answer:Lost Touch Screen Function on Inspiron 7537

Hi,
I am a Dell Inspiron 7537 user and also encountering the same touchscreen problem plus the wifi would sometimes go on and off (based on the wifi icon).
I already contacted the Dell tech support via chat and unfortunately, I would have to return the laptop to Best Buy for replacement or repair. The problem is I live in the Philippines and Dell does not have any tech support here.
The problem only started when Dell and Microsoft sent me software auto updates a few weeks back.
Are there any updates regarding the issue?

I just reformatted my pc. After I installed all drivers, I realized that I also needed to install the driver for my NEC MultiSync LCD1560V+ Touch Screen Monitor. So I went to NEC's website and installed the driver. This driver is not an exe. file. Instead, it's a zip. file that contains 3 system files (see attached).

I am thinking I might have installed this driver incorrectly. I just clicked the Cat file and installed the certificate.

Right now, I can my monitor to view but the touching function is not working, forcing me to use a mouse for control. Can anyone Help me fix this problem?? thank you!

I just reformatted my pc. After I installed all drivers, I realized that I also needed to install the driver for my NEC MultiSync LCD1560V+ Touch Screen Monitor. So I went to NEC's website and installed the driver. This driver is not an exe. file. Instead, it's a zip. file that contains 3 system files (see attached).

I am thinking I might have installed this driver incorrectly. I just clicked the Cat file and installed the certificate.

Right now, I can my monitor to view but the touching function is not working, forcing me to use a mouse for control. Can anyone Help me fix this problem?? thank you!

Hi there I just purchased Carbon X1 touch screen version for less than a week and all of a sudden I found out the touch screen was not working any more. I checked the system property and it shows "No pen or touch input is available for this display". That's totally wierd because when the time I received this product it worked very well.  I also checked the device manager. It shows "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer."I tried almost every method mentioned about touch screen malfunction and none of them worked. I even refresh this laptop and this issue still exists.  Could some one here help me figure out this problem? I don't want send my laptop back to lenovo because I just purchased for less than one week and I'm really need it now.

I am running windows seven and my laptop (a 10 inch acer aspire one) shut down to load some changes after an auto up date. It automatically shut down without prompting me and after it restarted I could no longer use the scroll function on the side of my touch pad. Now I cant scroll at all but half the time I get the little gray circle that signals that the scroll part of the pad is in use but it still does not move the bar on the side of the page. I am not familiar enough with W7 to know where to look to fix this problem. Please help or let me know if there is any other info needed to help me fix this problem.
Thanks

Answer:problem with touch pad scroll function after auto updat

Hi Phil.
You will have to go to Acer.com and find the support for your netbook.
I'm guessing it is an AOD250 with a 10.1" screen. That is what I have.
You will need to find the software for your touchpad and rein stall.
Here is the information I think you will need.
TouchPadSynapticsTouchpad Driver14.0.4.029.1 MB2009/12/08

They have 2 versions from 2 different manufs but I think this is the one one you have. Just download and run.

Hey there, Just had an cracked screen on my Yoga 2 Pro and paid for a replacement. As the screen was cracked, I had to disable the HID-compliant touch screen in my device manager because otherwise I couldn't use the Yoga 2 Pro at all - because of the crack it was like touches like everywhere on the screen at the same time, but I was able to disable it in "device manager". Yesterday, my screen has been changed and everything works fine - except the "touch function"! If I rotate my Yoga 2 Pro nothing happens, too. If I open the device manager, my HID-compliant touch screen is not visibile. If I press "show hidden devices" and select the HID-compliant touch screen (it is shown then), it is listed as "not connectet" - error code 45. But the screen itself is working. If I search for drivers, it says everything is fine. But the HID-compliant touch screen is not connected...?! How in the world I can tell my Yoga 2 Pro that there is a touch function in my new screen?! So, I am a little confused about what to do with it!

My ENVY m6-AQ003 x360 touch screen function clicks itself. It clicks really fast in a straight vertical line. I havn't used it in a couple days so when I turned it on and it started clicking my first thought was the mouse was acting up or the touch pad. so I unplugged the mouse and restarted the computer. It continued to do it after the restart so I tried to turn off the touchpad. But the screen kept clicking before I could. Although it has stopped after i played around with it. It seems to keep doing it from time to time a few clicks. I know it is the touch screen function after I realized that the touch screen makes circles where you click and the mouse and touch pad don't. I hope there is a quick fix so I dont' have this problem when I travel in a few days.

Hi, My X1 Carbon Touch adaptive keyboard keys don't work anymore. I've tried to search through the knowledge base and installed the mentioned power management drivers, also made sure to flash the bios of the computer with the latest and installed all updates. Yet the keys are either frozen at the F1 keys or doesn't come on or light up at all. I can't access volume, brightness, or any of the other settings.  Any ideas how to truly resolve this?

Hi Folks,I need to use the touch (finger) functionality on a kiosk application. Some buttons require press and hold to activate continuous functions. The x220i has a built in delay of about a second or so, if you press and hold it takes a second or so before it registers as a press and hold. Can that be reduced to zero? What I'm asking is if the touch function can activate on inital press, and release on release. The way it works now is for a short press, the activation is on release, and if you hold past that delay, it presses and holds. I need it to start activation immediately on first press, and then release when the finger comes off.

Answer:X220i How to change touch and hold delay - Kiosk function

Are you talking about press-and-hold where Windows draws a circle around your finger and then registers a right-click?
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd940543(v=vs.85).aspx
 
If so, then I'm not sure if it is possible to globally disable that gesture or not - you would need to ask Microsoft about that since it is a core function of the OS.
 
If you are writing your own application, then you can disable gestures (including press-and-hold) for your application window by responding to the WM_TABLET_QUERYSYSTEMGESTURESTATUS message, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb969148(v=vs.85).aspx

Hi, Been on this forum since the early WP7 days. Have the 822 and have just ordered the 928.
My problem seems to be IE10 and the back key. Starting a few days ago, when I try to go back from one screen to another; it will not do so. No manner of cussing, pounding on the keyboard or begging works.
I notice this happens mostly when I'm using Yahoo or when I'm using WPCentral and in the forum section. I am hesitant to read a posting because i'm afraid I can't go back to the posting screen without having to close IE10 and opening a new session in WPCentral.
I am not stating this is a problem caused by WPCentral; especially since it happens in other screens as well. I did a Bing search and found this to be a problem in some IE8 - IE10 systems. I'm running Win 8 on a Dell Lattitude Studio 17 laptop.
The only thing I have found that helps is to run "InPrivate" sessions. Even this doesn't stop the problem with the back key but does help a bit.
I have reset all setting in IE10 to default and the problem still exists.
Does anyone else have this problem or have suggestions as to how to cure it.
Thanks in advance,
Aximtreo

Now when I tried to aces the NTI CD&DVD maker from desktop to do a back-up disk on 'my docs', etc the CD/DVD maker doesn't work. A sign comes up saying
"% was not installed properly, or it was altered. Plse reinstall the software or contact tech support".

At first I could deal with not being able to run Windows Messenger Live (well not my sister anyway, since she was the one with the issue on her login), but now I can't seem able to use the 7.5 version.

When it is run, I find it rather difficult to interact with the program. I only bet on knowing that the text will appear soon enough, that my email will be typed in. When I make mistakes entering it, it takes rather long to fix it. It is sort of like writing a letter and then finally looking down at it to see what you have written. Even putting the cursor over the program makes it disappear (but it functions like it is there).
Anything past that, and I get issues just signing in, in a matter of a second. So that means it can't be a firewall (I use ZoneAlarm), because I have checked through that. Anyway, you get the resulting attachments 01 and 02. On the second one is where I am sort of confused. I tried using Repair, but that did nothing since I can do that a million times, and that would make no change. Something must be wrong with the host file. Somewhere along the lines I got what is now in the text file.

I have tried reinstalling the program (even from a new downloaded file), but that doesn't work. Also is a new .NET update on the computer something to think about? This happened a good while after I had it installed.

So how can I resolve this issue?

Hi

Please check if you can change the settings regarding the special function key mode in the BIOS.
Usually this option allows you to use the function keys without pressing the FN button.

Play around with this setting and don?t forget to save the changes in BIOS.

Furthermore ensure that BIOS is already up to date and the VAP was installed properly.

Open Explorer and go to the Windows\Inf folder.
Locate the srchasst.inf file. Right click it and select Install.
You'll need your XP CD or the files from the I386 folder.

The Windows\Inf folder is a hidden folder. You can adjust your Explorer Folder Options (View tab) to Show hidden files and folders.
Windows Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/View
Check ?Show hidden Files?
Uncheck ?Hide protected system files?
Apply

You can also click Start, Run and enter %SystemRoot%\Inf to open directly to the Inf folder.

I'm not certain if I'm posting this in the correct forum. Hope so. Very weird problem and have spent 2 days trying to work it out.
I have the Adobe Flash Player ... I have BBC and ITV Player.

A week ago we were able to go to ITV-1, and watch two episodes of an outstanding show called Downton Abbey. This is 24 hours after broadcast and is a catch up service. No problem. But suddenly, when trying to get the third episode, nothing.
It just will not open. Called ITV who suggested that perhaps I should uninstall and then reinstall Adobe Flash. I did. Still no joy. Cleared cache and history and all the things we're always told to do on a regular basis. Defragged ... cleared disk ...
even did a restore to another date. Nothing worked. So I'm stumped. I have broadband and oh by the way ... I see below that it says under system info that my AV isn't updated. Well, it sure is.
Sorry to be long winded but don't know another way to explain the problem here. The site and show in question play on other people's PCs, so the problem has to be here in mine. Funny thing tho, I can still get BBC-TV, no problem.

Any ideas out there?

Answer:Search function doesn't work now

Have you checked to see if the search function works in SafeMode?

Have you installed any updates to the current software like your AV program for instance?

Anyway, the first thing I'd try would be to run SFC from a command prompt within Windows XP and see what happens

sfc /scannow

BTW, in reference to the services, I doubt that's an issue. Windows XP will start a service if it's needed, regardless of whether you've disabled it.

Everytime I am browing now Firefox 4 doesn't function properly in the taskbar. I made a screenshot of it which shows the problem much better.
As you can see Chrome and Foobar2000 are function properly and the way I want it, but Firefox 4 doesn't. It show the open browser and the icon to start another Firefox window and that's not how I want it.
Could anyone help me with this small problem?

Answer:Firefox 4 doesn't function properly in the taskbar

I'm not having any problems with FF. I'm using RC1 version... Click on that icon and remove it from taskbar. After that click with right click on firefox icon(that you browse) and select Pin to Taskbar.

I'm copying folder A on external drive E to folder B on external drive K. Folder B is an older copy of folder A which I now want to update so that I have an identical copy of folder A on drive K. I'm calling the copy of folder A on drive K "folder B" just for simplicity. Folder A is 27 gigabytes, 121 folders, 4,000 files.

When I copy A to B the system copies just the new files and after awhile tells me that there are copies of the remaining files already in folder B so I click on cancel or skip remaining files. Then just to be sure I copy folder B back to folder A and it finds a couple hundred files that it says are not in folder A so it adds them then tells me the rest are already in A. So next I just want to be really sure they are both the same so copy folder A back to folder B again, but it starts copying another hundred files from A to B.

I have done this back and forth thing over 20 times till I got completely bored doing it and every single time it copys more files from B to A, then more files from A to B, then more files from B to A, then more files from A to B and on and on. If I look at the properties of both A and B they are identical, same number of bytes, files and folders. But the copy process never sees that they are identical. It will forever think there are some files in A that are not in B and that there are some files in B that are not in A no matter how many times I do this cross copying.

I realize I can just check properties earlier and l... Read more

Answer:Why doesn't the copy function ever know that 2 folders are identical?

Have a look at this. I think it will solve your problem. Much easier and a more elegant way of achieving what you are trying to do!

I have about 600 gigs of storage space and windows search doesn’t work so I’m a bit frustrated at this problem.

When I run windows search function I get 2-3 recently created files and nothing else. The process of getting these results take less than a second sometimes and it doesn’t comb threw my folder structure the way it used to. I have indexing on and I’ve had indexing off but this does not effect the results. I’m not sure when this problem first popped up but I assume it was about 4-5 months ago when my step dad changed my network settings because of some bad advice from some tech support who didn’t know what kind of system I had.

I’ve tried using “Windows Desktop Search” and that didn’t work either so I uninstalled that. I don’t want to use 3rd party search programs just because the windows search has worked fine for me so far with the exception to this. Any help is appreciated

Thanks.

Hi

I've searched for this and found a couple of similar threads around Wireless Networking but they don't quite match the problems I'm having.

I have a Sony VAIO laptop running Windows XP. I've had the machine for about 18 months now and have had no problems connecting to my wireless router. I have always been able to detect 4 or 5 local networks as well as my own.

About 3 months ago I was prompted to upgrade from Internet Explorer 6 to IE7 and (foolishly) did so. This caused huge problems and eventually I had to reverse the procedure using Norton Go Back - this was largely successful although I still seem to get a couple of error messages on start up that weren't there previously. One thing that the unscrambling exercise did not fix, however, was the wireless connection which has never worked since.

The problem manifestation is simple: when I double click the wireless icon on the task bar it tells me that "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on". Despite making various attempts at overcoming this, including re-installing the router software, I have made no progress.

Picking-up from the previous threads, I have checked the contents of my Start Up folder - nothing at all in there. Also, I have looked at Wireless Zero Configuration and this shows as 'Started' and start up type 'Automatic'.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Greetings,I have a newly acquired T540P which I nuked the hard drive and installed Win10 Enterprise from scratch.  I installed the Lenovo software which appeared to install all the Lenovo drivers.  My keyboard in device manager still shows Standard PS2.  I installed the l_enhanced_performance_usb_keyboard2024 from Lenovo's web site and device manager still shows Standard PS2.  Function F1 - F6 work fine.  Function F7-F12 do nothing.  This means I cannot turn off the wireless which I need to do several times a day without disabling it in device manager. What does it take to get the rest of the function keys working?

Okay forum I am coming to you once again for a little assistance.

Today I went to fire up my desktop and everything loaded quick and fine as usual. But when I went to click on my browser nothing happened. I then proceeded to try and click on my Windows Start button but again nothing happened. Nothing will function at all. The system just freezes and won't do anything.

My system is set up using an SSD for the OS and a RAID0 array for the programs and user files. While I have had issues with CHKDSK pulling the Raid array apart it is now disabled on both the SSD and the Raid array. I tried loading with the install disk and going to a restore point but the only one is from the updates yesterday and the issue still remains. I have also tried the SFC /SCANNOW using the command prompt on the install disk and it found no errors. I'm at a loss here and really don't want to do a fresh install. This thing is a pain to set up.

Thanks all in advance.

Answer:Windows 7 Opens and looks fine but doesn't function

Okay so I figured it all out. Still not sure why it happened but here's how I fixed it. I rebooted the system and loaded into safe mode. Once in I accessed the hidden system admin, found my user profile and transferred it over to another drive just in case. During the transfer the loader froze so I had to abort with a manual system power down (holding down the D-Day button). Once the system booted up (again into safe mode) I ran CHKDSK again on both drives. Again the results came back negative. However when the system rebooted into normal OPS I had a functional desktop. The only issue being that even though I logged into my profile, once in I got an error. "You have been signed into a temporary profile, etc. etc." Since I at least have some headway I jumped over to the hidden system admin and went to the REGEDIT. I found my User Profile Registry Key, backed it up and deleted it and rebooted. After I rebooted I no longer had this error but none of my saved files, movies or pictures were anywhere to be found. I did however manage to keep my programs installed. But then I got to thinking about that file I tried to back up. I tried to open it and got an error. I tried to delete it and it wouldn't let me. I finaly played it all out and ran CHKDSK again from safe mode on both drives. Lots of errors. After I booted the system up this last time I was able to open the file and low and behold I at least saved my docs and pics. Just transferred everything over and am now back ... Read more

     I'm an onsite tech at a large company doing IBM / HP support. I've noticed that when turning the LCD (flipping it over for tablet position) on some units the stylus will stop working. I'm seeing this alot. I've replaced LCD cables, made sure theres enough slack so its not pulled when turning the LCD 180 deg., etc.     I can't see any types of sensors that would signal the driver or BIOS when the display is flipped into tablet position - but am I missing something. Does the software know when the display in in tablet mode - if so, maybe this problem is indeed driver or BIOS related.  I even thought there might be an EMI problem - with magnetic interference coming out the LCD back when its up against the keyboard (and very close to the mobo) which may be causing electrical / bus interference and thereby stopping the stylus from being recognized?????   Does anyone know what could be the cause....and /or the answer here?                    Thanks........DCO

I recently upgraded my 3 computers to Windows 8.1. Only 1 PC (INTEL) is working as it should. The other 2 PC's are AMD based and the search function is acting funny. When I search it gives my the results, but when I click on says I'm looking for DEVICES AND PRINTERS and I search "printers", it gives my the result. If I click on DEVICES AND PRINTERS tab it doesn't respond, but when I click on say my Canon printer's link to MY PRINTER it responds. I ran SFC/SCANNOW and also DISM (Micorsoft actually ran it) and nothing changed. It sometimes locks me onto the Meto screen and I have to reset the PC to get back to my normal Desktop. When it does that non of the Metro tiles works. Micorsoft technician also tried to create a new user account which comes out blank and when creating another account, as soon as you log into the account it immediately signs out of it and don't allow you access. I tried to refresh the pc, but the frustrating part is, it asks you to choose a keyboard layout, but disables all USB and PS ports. Now how do I choose a keyboard layout, unless I have a touch screen. Microsoft really didn't think this trough. Is there anybody that perhaps now how to get the searh to work. Oh I do have searchindex.exe in my system32 folder and in services I stop and restarted Windows Search, but still no change.

Answer:Search function in Windows 8.1 doesn't work as it should

Problem solved. After Microsoft technicians tried everything and my PC crashed I decided to just redo. Then I found out that a program called Wisecare 365 that I was running on my Windows 8 PC caused all the problems. It went and deleted registry and other files that windows 8.1 need to operate with. So it's no longer on my PC and so far Windows 8.1 is running fine.

Hi All,
I tried flashing my BIOS through windows as recommended on my Laptop Manufacturer (Toshiba) website. I guess the process went wrong as after 2 hours still the message "Do not interrupt" was getting displayed. I had to force power off my PC. Now it is not booting up.
The Laptio is Toshiba SA50-114, Satellite series.Model No - PSA50E

I have tried suggestions in following link
http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSu...200%2035586212
However, this did not work.

However, I don't have the recovery disk tool and BIOS/ROM file. Have tried searching on internet, but with no results.

Can someone please help me with
1. How can I perform the BIOS update to get my PC running back.

2. Point me to links where I can find the files in the above link.

Many Thanks in advance.
Best Regards,
Parag

Answer:Satellite A50 doesn't function after BIOS update

> 1. How can I perform the BIOS update to get my PC running back.
Not possible if your BIOS ROM module was wrong flashed.
If you are a lucky man then only the ROM module must be flashed again using an special procedure. But this can be done only by an authorized service provider in your country.

> 2. Point me to links where I can find the files in the above link.
There is no link! You will have to ask the ASP for the help.

Answer:windows xp pro screen saver doesn't function

Hello campus56


1.If you are using an old mouse, try cleaning it.

2. You might have a process running in the background that keeps XP thinking it is busy and so the screen saver won`t start.
Go into msconfig and uncheck everything you don`t need, then see if the screen saver will kick in.

Start/Run and type in
msconfig
OK

Startup Tab
Keep the page open then go to link below. It will tell you what all the entries are and whether you can disable them or not

http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php

Read the Key at foot of page, then click on "Here" at top. Use the Search box to check all your entries

3. Try this too
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

Line 51 left hand side. Click on "Disable/Enable"


It could be that something is resetting the timer. It doesn't take very much vibration to move the mouse a little bit and that sets the timer back to zero. Could something like that be a possibility? Or a pet that walks on the keyboard?

My fairly new Lenovo Y410p funtions extremely well when playing a video game, but only when connected to a charger, as soon as I disconnect the charger, my framerate can drop to upto 1/8th of the original framerate. It is always connected to the NVidia Graphics Card, the power plan is always on high performance, and the minimum processor state on battery for the processor power management is 100%. Does anyone know what is wrong, and if possible, how I can fix it? Am I missing something fairly obvious, or is there a defect with my computer? Thank you in advance.

Answer:Lenovo Y410p: Doesn't Function As Well Without the Charger

Battery technology has not kept up with CPU and GPU technology.  A battery that fits in a laptop can not fully power both the CPU and GPU at the same time.  Manufacturers typically throttle both the CPU and GPU when on battery power.  You can try running your games with the Intel CPU and Intel GPU but performance is not going to be great. If you could force your CPU and Nvidia GPU to run at full speed on battery power, your battery could be permantely damaged.  It's a fact of life.  Gaming laptops need to be plugged in.

I can't use or run "restore" anymore on XP machine. I have no idea what happened. I don't seem to have any other problems.

Bill

Answer:Restore function doesn't work anymore

It sounds as if System Restore may have become corrupted. You can try reinstalling the feature. Here's how:In Control Panel or Windows Explorer, click Folder Options and then View tab
Under Advanced Settings, scroll down and find "Show hdden files and folder." Check the box.
Find "Hide extensions for known files types." Uncheck that box. Click Apply, OK.
In Windows Explorer, find your Windows folder (usually on the C: drive but not always). Navigate to the inf folder and open it.
Find a file named sr.inf
Right click the file and select Install.

Important: This creates a new installation of System Restore, but it will delete any restore points that you had created previously.

kind regards,
