TrackPoint clicks on its own

Question: TrackPoint clicks on its own

For the past week or two it seems that the mouse clicks on its own on my T420. This is in TrackPoint only mode (TouchPad disabled) with press to select disabled. This issue is reproducible as it generally happens right after a normal click or unclick. For example, if I highlight text in a word processor by clicking and dragging my cursor over the text when I release the button the system registers a phantom click within the next second or so. I also have noticed these phantom clicks after middle clickling. Does this sound like a possible driver issue or should I go ahead and call to have a tech come out and replace parts?

Preferred Solution: TrackPoint clicks on its own

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.)

Answer: TrackPoint clicks on its own

@nibs,Try uninstalling UltraNav, reboot the laptop then install it back and see if it helps. If problem persist then I guess its time to contact the techs.

T40 Details:2373-92U I've been having this problem with my trackpoint and ultranav mice for quite some time - it seems that only the left button generates any response by the OS, and that response is most often a "right click."  The actual right button is unresponsive.  I've tried the option under "control panel -> mouse -> button configuration -> switch primary and secondary buttons"  whether checked or unchecked, the left button still has the same behavior.  Occasionally, the left button will stop working entirely within a window - apparently the best way to resolve this is to use the left button to click anywhere on the desktop: the context menu appears, and after using the left button to click on any item within the context window the left button will once again become responsive in all windows (although it will still act like the right button when clicking). External USB mice and Bluetooth mice do not have this problem - those mice respond properly to left/right clicks. My best guess is that the keyboard unit (08k4957 or 08k4986) needs to be replaced, however I'm hoping there's a more definitive test I can perform before shelling out the $$ for a new keyboard unit.  I say this because the ultranav mousepad also has the same problem and I see it plugs into a separate location within the laptop - is there another common component within the laptop that could cause common failure between the two built-in mice? Thank...

For a while now, I have wondered why the virtual buttons shown in the utility http://imgur.com/Lljj1Z7 don?t function as advertised. According to the utility, I should get a left click if I depress the left are of the touchpad, a middle click if I push on the bumps, and a right click if I depress the right half of the touchpad. In my experience, I get a left click regardless of where I depress the touchpad. The only exception is when I depress the bumps in the top middle of the touchpad?when I do that, the mouse enters some weird scrolly mode where I scan scroll stuff with the trackpoint. It definitely does not emit a middle click. But, more importantly, I cannot figure out how to get trackpoint mode to emit a right click. How do I get trackpoint classic mode to work? Is there a way to downgrade the drive or use a non-lenovo branded driver to get it to behave properly? Right now, I?m relying on an external mouse just to middle click and right click. I?m using Windows 10 b10240 and, as in the post?s title, my trackpoint driver is the latest listed on Lenovo?s support site (which I think WU actually installed for me)?19.0.12.61. Why don?t the virtual buttons work and are there any other workarounds that don?t involve using a mode other than Trackpoint Classic?

Answer:T540p unable to right-click with virtual buttons in trackpoint or trackpoint classic mode 19.0.12.61

Seems to have partially fixed iteslf since Windows Update (WU) installed 19.0.16. Now the right half of my touchpad performs a right click when in TrackPad Classic mode. However, the supposed ?middle click? zone still does a weird scrolly mode instead of sending a middle click. Guess I still have to use an external mouse to accomplish a middle click when using Classic TrackPoint mode, but at least the situtaion is better than when I couldn?t right click with this mode.

Hi, I got an S230u Twist last autumn and have been really happy with it. At the time, I ordered a set of replacement rubber TrackPoint caps. When I replaced the original cap the other day, I realised that the replacement ones are about 0.5mm shorter than the original one, with the result that the H and G keys get caught on the edge of the cap; you have to hit them quite hard to get them to work. I compared all the new caps from the packet against the original one, and sure enough; they're all a little too short. They fit, but it's annoying to have to go back and make sure all my ""G"s and "H"s typed correctly.  Has anyone else had the same problem? Lenovo, could this just have been a bad batch, and if so can I return the unused ones for a replacement set that is the correct height? 

Answer:S230u - replacement trackpoint TrackPoint caps are too short

If you bought them from Lenovo I'd just try and return them. If not dispute on eBay/PayPal/Credit Card. But never use poor quality TrackPoint Caps. Remember if a computer is running efficiently so is the person behind it generally.

Hi, I wonder whether there is a way to enable press-to-click for the trackpoint on the new x1? In the respective settings there is no such options and I searched everywhere, somebody found it? Next question: In order to avoid the annoying noise of the clickpad everytime you press it, I would like to use the tap function of the touchpad while using the trackpoint to move the cursor. Unfortunately, tapping on the pad seems to be disabled during use of trackpoint - any smart hack to get this workig? Thanks to all,J

Question: Trackpoint gone...

I did the usual "Windows update" this morning. After the installation had completed I noticed that my Trackpoint has "disappeared"! There is no reaction whatsoever when pressing the red dot and I can't control the mouse with it any more. I then checked in the control panel (no trace) and then had to learn, that it doesn't even exist in the device manager, either. I then rebooted, no change. I then even powered off and reboot from power off again, still no trackpoint! And after I downloaded the trackpoint driver from the Lenovo drivers download site and wanted to (re-)install the driver, I got an error message "this driver can not be installed on non-trackpoint systems". ?!? What? What the %@[email protected]#*%?  Where has my trackpoint gone??? How come, that it has completely disappeared? How do I get this thing working again? Edited: I later noticed, that a part of that Windows Update apparently was a new "Wacom Two Finger Touch" driver. Might that have to do with my disappeared Trackpoint? Michael PS.: Boy - is this annoying to have to work without Trackpoint!

Answer:Trackpoint gone...

I just had to learn that there is a Fn-key (F8) that allows to enable/disable Trackpoint and Touchpad. I must have accidentally operated that button without noticing (in fact, I hadn't even known before that there IS such an option...).Its setting was on "Touchpad only". After re-enabling the trackpoint there everything came back to normal. Wheew. What a relieve! :-) And it (most probably) had nothing to do with the Windows Update - just an unlucky conincidence! Michael

Question: Trackpoint cap

I'm not sure if this is the place I'm supposed to post this. I absolutely hate the trackpoint when I type.  I type quite fast and I hit the trackpoint every once in a while -- but this is enough to really get on my nerves.  It's absolutely distracting.  Imagine typing out your thoughts then all of a sudden you hit the thing, get distracted, then irritated, and your thoughts gone.  ThinkPads are supposed to help you think.  The trackpoint unfortunately doesnt...  Are there a replacement tips that's depressed enough (and maybe colored black...) so that I dont hit it accidentally when I type?  Removing the tip works fine -- but it looks so ugly without it (makes it look like i'm using a broken equipment). Oh and I dont mind if the replacement cap will render the trackpoint unusable.  I just need it low enough so I dont accidentally hit it.

these are the three different types of trackpoint caps. You might get lucky with the first type and there is no black trackpoint caps produced by Lenovo. 
 
You can disable the trackpoint by pressing Fn + F8 in windows and then select trackpad only. You can also disable trackpoint from BIOS menu.

Answer:How do I get clicks?

Hi

Sadly if you want click through too your site then its hard and tech forums or any forum are not likely to use your link as we do not know you or your site or click through so generally will not use it for security purposes.

We do not know and it maybe safe but is this link malware or gain the user spam? it may not but you have to think of this if you post a link on a forum as a new member.

Question: BT web clicks

Has anyone used bt webclicks? I signed up to them at £80per month as they are supposed to take all the time optimising google adwords off your back and they also guarantee a certain number of click throughs per year or your money back. It sounds like a win win deal. However I just got my report back for last month and received no click throughs at all - and this is traditionally the month for peak enquiries in my business [wedding catering and marquees]. They are obviously under bidding because key words are probably too expensive at this time of year.I find the whole business very fishy. I should be interested to hear of other readers experiences.

Is there any way to use the trackpoint on Lenovo computers as a joystick?  I.e. a device that would be useful for a flight simulator?  Essentially, it wouldn't be moving the mouse along a line based on the direction you're pushing it in with a speed based on your finger pressure,  but rather moving the mouse to a stationary position on the screen based on the direction and pressure you're pushing on it with.

I'm using a Lenovo T61-8890 A24. It's a pretty old model but has been upgraded to be able to support Win 7 Ultimate 32bit. 
 
I currently am facing a similar issue. In the BIOS, both my trackpoint and touchpad is detected and set to Automatic.
If I remove the entire palm rest and touchpad panel, I'm able to get the trackpoint to work, however once the touchpad is connected, the trackpoint just stops working.
 
I tried to enable it on the Ultranav program but it just doesn't work.
 
I tried the mouse properties and the trackpoint function is greyed out as shown below.

When I went into the device manager, the trackpoint is not detected.

I tried installing all versions of Ultranav, tried BIOS updates, tried cleaning the connectors, and still can't get the trackpoint to work together with the touchpad. 
 
Any advice to this issue is greatly appreciated.

Answer:T61 - can't enable TrackPoint

Hi Dyna, Welcome to the forum. When you say Trackpoint doesn't work, do you mean:1. That trackpoint itself is not workingor 2. The left click, right click and scroll buttons associated with the trackpoint doesn't work. ========Also, you did not mention whether your trackpad works or not. Finally, what happens when you disable the trackpad in the BIOS menu? Does that affect your trackpoint and associated buttons' behaviours?

After just a few months of usage, my W510's TrackPoint cap came loose. I ordered a three-part TrackPoint cap collection on eBay. Alas, the caps don't fit.
 
No surprise if you look at this photo of a non-W-series keyboard with the cap removed. The TrackPoint post in my W-series ThinkPad is yellow rather than black and significantly smaller:

Also, the W-series is prominently absent from the list of supported models in Lenovo's specs of the replacement caps.

Question: Choppy Trackpoint

I know I just posted a thread, but I figured that issue is global enough to warranty its own. But this one seems to be specific to me.I'm a new Thinkpad (and trackpoint) user, and the trackpoint is very choppy for me. It seems to skip frames. For example, making a circular motion with the trackpad results in a continuous, smooth motion. But not so with the trackpoint. It seems to be micro-jumping (or skipping frames as I prefer to call it). This is easily noticeable when holding down the middle trackpoint button and attempting to scroll a page. The page does not scroll smoothly at all (has nothing to do with smooth scrolling, that's something else and not what I'm talking about).Now this isn't just with this X220. Before the X220 I briefly owned a x120e that had this EXACT same problem. I asked about it and people told me that is not normal. So I returned it and got this X220, but it's the same problem.The weird thing is that while this choppiness is present in Windows, it was just fine during the Windows install process. I've tried: disabling the trackpad, reducing/increasing trapoint sensetivity, updating drivers, removing drivers and reinstalling, bumping the priority of the driver to high. None helped. What are the chances I'd receive two machines with the same problem?

Answer:Choppy Trackpoint

Disabling the trackpad from the BIOS fixed the issue it seems (its definitely much smoother). Diasbling it within Windows did not help. If I recall correctly disabling the trackpad in the x120e from the BIOS was not an option. Too bad. But odd that others do not have this problem. Oh and my palm was not resting on the trackpad

Hi Oshri,
                           
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
                                                     
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with track point not working in your Lenovo T410 laptop
The Fn-key (F8) allows the to enable/disable Trackpoint and Touchpad.
 
If the trackpoint is no longer working, this may be a good option to check before investigating device manager, updating / reinstalling trackpoint drivers or rebooting as discussed above.
 
Pressing Fn-F8 brings up the ultranav menu and allows the user to cycle through different trackpoint and touchpad configuration options.
 
Click here for the drivers.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

E420S, Cannot get either to work. Cannot enable trackpoint or touchpad in UltraNav.

Answer:Trackpoint and Touchpad

Hi, ezedoh
 
The first thing I would recommend is the removal of the UltraNav driver from the system. This is best accomplished by using an external mouse to navigate the system. To uninstall the UltraNav driver, open the Start menu and type Device Managerinto the Search box, and then press Enter. Once here, double click on Mouse and other pointing devices, and then right-click on the UltraNav device. Naviage to the Driver tab and select Uninstall... from the bottom of the window. Follow the prompts to uninstall and then restart when prompted by Windows. Windows should install a generic driver for controlling the mouse. This should reinstate the touchpad to working order. If not, then continue using an external mouse for now. 
 
Once the UltraNav driver has been removed, I would recommend trying to use the standard Synaptics driver found here. Synaptics is the company that develops the UltraNav software, so there should be no loss of compatibility/features. I have witnessed several cases where this driver has helped others with mouse issues, so it may help yours as well.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

If I take out the red cap, there is a black thing as shown in second image located on key "G."  I try to jam it into the fixture, but did not work out.Should this black thing need to always stay in the fixture?Is it just be glued to the fixture?Should I ask Lenovo for a service?Thanks for your help.  

Answer:Is my trackpoint broken?

The images don't work, however, I think I understand.  The Trackpoint is a red rubber cap that just fits on a black plastic post between the G, H, and B keys.  It lifts right off of the black plastic post.  The post is a permanent part of the keyboard.  The "eraser" head is user replaceable when necessary. The underside of the Trackpoint "eraser" is hollowed out to fit over the black post.  It is snug, but does not require "jamming."  When in place, does it work?

Now that the 5th gen Thinkpad is here, the decline of the trackpoint becomes ever clearer.  Frankly, most of us would not be buying Thinkpads if they didn't have the trackpoint.  That's the X1's main advantage.  But Lenovo keeps making it worse.  First, the trackpoint caps that will fit the gen 4 and 5 come in only one, unpopular, variant and you can't get the soft rim version.  But more importantly, Lenovo keeps on degrading the software control of the trackpoint.  It used to be that you could adjust the sensitivity of the trackpoint, making it more or less stiff.  Even the softest setting was inadequate but it was something.  In the 5gen there is no option to change the stiffness or responsiveness of the trackpoint's movements at all.  Lenovo: hear your customers!! Please make the trackpoint MORE not less adjustable.

I recently got a Thinkpad T420.  One of my favorite features is the nub, but for the past few days the nub has been impossible to use.  It will click things randomly and rapidly and also freezes and shakes the mouse.  Once I deactivate trackpoint it works fine, but it's one of my favorite features. I just bought the computer two weeks ago so I can't imagine the keyboard breaking already. Is it a software problem or something?

It is my first thinkpad and was wondering what older users would say for it...

Answer:Is trackpoint durable ?

Hi beickus,It is in my standpoint but you don't have to push it hard to test it's limits, play it gently and use soft hands to use it. A simple touch works best, you don't really have to rest your finger on it. Hope it helps.

i just noticed a minute ago that my trackpoint is very very loose on my t61p it comes off with my finger when i lift it. is there any way i can fix it at home? or will it be covered by warranty?

Answer:trackpoint loose

When you say the TrackPoint is loose, are you refering to the red cap that covers it?  If so, it's probably just worn out and needs to be replaced.  You can order replacements from Lenovo.  The part number is 73P2698, and here in the US, they're $9.99.  Sometimes they're also available on eBay.

Question: Trackpoint Issues

Hi, Just recently my trackpoint in my T61 stopped responding after having a little water in my keyboard near the left function and shift keys.  Attempting to fix the problem, I went to the mouse settings to make sure it was enabled, however the Trackpoint section was grayed out and the enabled box was unchecked. I also checked the BIOS settings and both the Trackpoint and touch pad are set to automatic. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the Ultranav driver and utility. Is there anything else I should do to fix the problem? The amount of water that got into the keyboard did not look like it was much and evaporated pretty quickly, so I am not sure if this is just a coincidence or it is related to the water being in the keyboard.  I also tried tried the Trackpoint with a Ubuntu Live CD, but it did not work in Ubuntu either. Thanks

Hey,sometimes when I move my pointer somwhere and then release trackpoint the pointer goes a little bit backwards. Can it be fixed?Regards 

Answer:x230 trackpoint

TrackPoint drift has been happening as long as I can remember, at least back to the X31.  Release the trackpoint, and it may drift towards the top left.  If you let it drift, it stops after a few seconds and after that works properly.  At least for me this happens infrequently enough so as not to be a big deal.

Question: Trackpoint problem

First of all, sorry if this questions been asked and answered. I've been searching off an on for several weeks for any online help to a trackpoint annoyance I've been having with no luck. I'm on a T61p running XP. (I upgraded the stock Vista, following an online guide). I have the Ultranav utility installed (I can see and change the options for the trackpoint/touchpad in the mouse control panel). Both the trackpoint and touchpad work. However, every once in a while the trackpoint just becomes totally unresponsive and the mouse pointer refuses to respond or move. For like 3-4 seconds. What's odd is that when this happens, the touchpad still works. (I'm trying to move or scroll with the trackpoint / topmost scroll button+trackpoint with now response, but use other finger to test touchpad and that responds.) It's really odd and really annoying. Has anyone had a similar problem? Any advice? Thanks!

Question: Choppy Trackpoint

Hello, Got x120e the other day and I have one question: This is my first Thinkpad (and first time witha trackpoint) - the trackpoint moves kind of choppy. It's not smooth movements like with the trackpad, as if it's missing frames or something. It's still perfectly useable but seems odd. Is this normal?

Answer:Choppy Trackpoint

No, it's not normal.  Mine moves as smooth as the touchpad (if not smoother) and responds to how much I move the stick.  Have you looked into the UltraNav Properties field of the trackpoint?  I'll leave this up to the experts to help you here.  This is my first Lenovo product too. But I'll like to comment that I wish the trackpoint would be at positions where your fingers will be while holding the machine.  The middle position works fine for a bigger laptop, but this is an ultraportable. Remember the IBM PalmTopPC110?  http://www.komotch2.com/tps/pt110.htm And the Toshiba Libretto:  http://www.silverace.com/libretto/libretto100j.jpg Some models' trackpoints are even located at behind the screen (i.e. on the lid).PalmTopPC110

Answer:TouchPad and TrackPoint

They're integrated parts of the palm rest. A cable connects all integrated parts of the palm rest to the machine. So I guess the cable isn't plugged in firmly enough. Remove the palm rest according to the hardware manual and check. If the cable has no problem, contact Lenovo to ask for a replacement palm rest.

Question: clicks and beeps?

Hey everyone, this is my first post.

The problem (not really a problem, but a curiosity) happens with my computer only at night (around midnight for some reason). This happens both when i'm working on the pc or just have it idleing. A pair of clicking sounds and a beep eminate from my tower. The clicks don't neceseraly sound like clicks, but more like when the floppy drive is reading a disk; and the beep comes from the motherboard, just like the startup beep in startup.

I'd really like to know what that means, and why is it so constant with the time it occurs?

I'm not sure if this is hardware or software, but I got a new computer and when it boots up, the monitor clicks on as usual, then before it's done booting, the monitor clicks off and on again around three times. When I first got the computer about 3 months ago, it only happened once in a while when booting, but now it's all the time.

I never have any trouble in games (I do car racing simulations), but it seems that the monitor blinks off and on about 1/4 of the times that I switch from one already open application to another.

I think that it's not the monitor because I run my older computer occasionally, using the same monitor and there's nothing happening like this.

I'm so lost. I have two desktop computers and a laptop. One is used only by my in-laws. Today, August 6th, around 8pm that desktop computer turned off while my father in law was playing a game(bejeweled, he bought the game, it wasn't downloaded). It would not turn back on. I had to unplug it for a few seconds, then plug in again. Only then would it restart. However, before it would finish loading windows Xp Home, it would turn off. Not shut down, but click off as if I were holding the power button. I tried restarting in safemode, it immediately clicked off. I tried several all other modes trying to get to the point of a system restore or debugging/windows control systems. However, it always clicked off. In one mode (I believe it was the windows controller mode) it would tell me there was some strange problem, a punch of c++ jargon I don't understand. It would give me 3 options. abort, retry, ignore. All 3 led to the computer clicking off. With retry it clicked off right away. Ignoring the box or clicking the other 2 options would make it click off anywhere from 10-15 seconds later. I just don't have enough time to do anything.

Please Help!

In time I hope to give more info(ie: the specific wording off the c++ jargon), but for now this is all I know.

Extra info: when the computer starts it goes through that whole check thing. Every time it runs it finds news things wrong and truncates them. Or it will say a volume size is incorrect. So many different file... Read more

Answer:Computer Just Clicks Off!

Hi .

That error message will provide a start point for some guesses/suggestions.

The only thing I've ever experienced that shuts a computer off...well, to be honest, that's never happened to me, other than with overheating.

Right now, my two main suspects would be PSU or heat.

For about the past two days, my mouse has been sporadically right clicking on it's own, and the left click has sometimes been acting as both at the same time. This issue isn't linked to a single mouse or USB port, as it happened with a new mouse I bought to replace the old one. Attempts to update the drivers via the device manager, or uninstalling the drivers and restarting my computer have met with zero success. I've run a full system scan with Avast Antivirus, nothing turned up.

When using the scroll wheel button to close tabs in firefox, it sometimes clicks twice and closes two, it also does this when I click a link with it sometimes and opens the link twice, so I guess it could happen with anything.. I originally thought it was just a problem with my other wired mouse as I never had this issue with the wireless mice I used (Which both had their receivers break.. ) but today I bought a new wired mouse (Being a bit fed up with the wireless ones..) that has the same issue the other wired one has, maybe I'm just unlucky.Is there something that can cause the middle scroll button to click twice sometimes? I'm using Windows XP Home Service Pack 3

When playing these two all the sound is polluted with pops and clicks. The more stuff that is going on, the more the problem occurs. Also, If i whack the resolution and detail up to acceptable levels (for my old PC), the problem gets worse.

I'm running an Athlon 1Ghz, 384 MB RAM, with a Gamesurround Muse Lt Soundcard, and nVidia GeForcer 2. Newest drivers available, and Direct X 9.0c both installed (though I had the problem before I updated them).

Question: Ghost Clicks

Dears, Since yesterday my desktop is making unexpected clicks and click-and-holds at the location of the mouse curser (in unpredictive frequency, ca. all 2-10 seconds). I tried several things to fix this: - Restart the PC- check all cable connections- unplug every attached device (mouse and keyboard) to drill down to the root cause device. Clicks occurred no matter which device was unplugged, even when all were unplugged.- disable the touchscreen driver to rule out the ghost click issue of HP  touch screens. So far no improvement. thanks for your swift response,Michael

Is it right, that I need two clicks (first the "..." and then the Star) to get to my saved Favorites on Edge Mobile?
And why have I to write my username on every website first before Edge enters the saved passwort?

Hi, I've been searching for similar situations for a while, but I haven't found anything so far that relates to my problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 600m. I have a dual boot running with Windows 7 RC as the primary and Windows XP as the secondary boot.

Basically what happens is that my computer's HDD will start clicking loudly and rapidly and the computer will freeze. A manual reboot is then necessary. I have waited for as long as 20 minutes or more to see if it will regain stability, but it never does. Sometimes I end up getting a blue dump screen and it will automatically reboot. I originally thought that my HDD was going bad, but it only happens when I'm running Windows 7. If I boot into XP, the HDD never starts clicking and never freezes. I have tried reformatting the Win7 partition and doing a clean install of Windows 7, but it did not fix the problem.

There are certain situations that especially seem to trigger the clicking, but sometimes it just happens randomly. The situations where it always and almost immediately happens are:
1. Running any type of Windows Update. (if it is enabled at all and starts downloading the clicking starts)
2. Running ChkDsk on startup. (The clicking starts when Verifying the USN Journals, and it never finishes the check)

Other information:
I had to manually add my ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9000 driver as it wasn't on the Windows 7 supported drivers list.

Was playing a game when all of a sudden my HDD started clicking twice every 1 second at a perfect 1 second interval.

I couldn't CTRL+ALT+DEL or get to the desktop before I blue screened with a 0x000000F4 error.

Any recommendations I can take to troubleshoot this issue? The eventviewer has no information other than "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

Answer:0xF4 and once per second HDD clicks

Just a head's up, I downloaded and ran the "Long DST" test in SeaTools (an HDD diagnostics tool provided by Seagate) and both HDD's came back with a "Healthy" status.

Question: Camera Clicks?!

Ok, so I'm relatively self sufficient with computers, and I solve most problems myself, but this one's got me totally stumped.  I also consulted some of my computer-buff friends, but they were all left clueless as well.  Well, here's the problem - my computer spontaneously (Usually several hours after boot) starts making these odd clicking noises that oddly resemble a camera click...  These clicks continue until I reboot the computer... Then, it spontaneously starts again - the cycle continues.  I was wondering if anybody can help me with this problem...  If it helps, here's some basic information about my computer -P4 2.4GHz, 512MB RAM, XP Pro SP2, on 802.11b network, use CA EZ Armor antivirus/firewall.

Answer:Camera Clicks?!

Try this... Unplug ALL wires going to your computer... Next, open the case over a TILE floor on a table (usually the case is held by crews or clips) ... Next, ground the electricity from your body by touching the inner metal frame of your computer... Next, look at your computer's fan, and make sure that it is not only clean, but that nothing is stuck inside, which is making this "clicking" noise... (a wire, etc.)  Keep in touch...[glb]Flame[/glb]

I had a thread a while back about how I had lost the 'click' sound when navigating web pages. That was on my home PC and not a huge deal. However, I'm working on a Dell laptop (XP Home SP2) that clicks constantly!! I'm running a MalwareBytes scan as we speak, and it's clicking about every 10 seconds or so, maybe 20 or 30 seconds. I turned off the wifi, and made sure the ethernet cable was unplugged, but it is still clicking like it's doing something. You know the sound, the 'navigation' click when you're browsing the web and click a link.... this laptop is clicking constantly. Wuzzupwidat?

[dlb]
 

Answer:Pc 'clicks' all the time

Do you have a browser open when this happens?

Have you tried to locate the sound to see if it is coming from the internal speaker, or whether an actual component is ticking? Or are you hearing the sound through your main speakers?

Try using some tube to your ear and the other end to the various components in turn to attempt to locate which is making the noise.

About a week ago my laptop running WinXP Media Center had an issue with 'Blank Window2 Hello4' - I was not able to run any programs or get onto the internet. Unfortunately not knowing what I know now, I ran ComboFix without any guidance. At this point the computer does run a few programs and I can get on the internet.

I've run Malware in all modes and can't seem to fix my issues. At this point I'm getting clicking sounds, beeps and pop-ups from IE. During shut down, I am prompted with ending 'Hello4' as well still.

Can anyone please help me with this issue? Thanks in advance!

Motion Tablet PC with a USB optical mouse. The thing will click just sitting there. You don't even have to touch it. Sometimes right-click, sometimes left click. I have tried three other mice and they all do the same thing. Even the touchpad mouse does it, but worse. It just started this recently and no new hardware or software has been installed. A/V scans daily with Symantec Corporate. Ideas?

Answer:mouse clicks by itself

I have never heard of this before; very strange. The thing that strikes me is that it has happened with other mice plus the touchpad mouse. Therefore they can be ruled out.

Have you attempted to update USB drivers or chipset drivers? Something is corrupted.

Hi, I did a reinstall on my family's pc 6 weeks ago, and use Avira as antivirus and firewall, with Malwarebytes and Superantispyware installed and used occasionally; pc has one admin. and one limited account, with Avira blocking the limited account from downloading/viewing various websites. 2 weeks ago I changed the Avira setting on the limited account and forgot to switch it back when I was finished and went away for the week. When I returned my son had downloaded some things (a game program) and seems to have infected the pc.

Specific problems: 1. using Facebook (only my wife on the admin. account uses it) when a link is clicked pop-ups appear; this was limited to Facebook but today I noted that pop-ups appeared when clicking links on majorgeeks.com as well.
2. pc screen switches off quite frequently (but not all the time - hasn't happened today).

I followed the instructions of Read & Run Me EXCEPT:
I ran ccleaner on limited account but forgot to run it on the admin. account until after running RogueKiller; I then ran it (I had run it the day before on both accounts).
I ran MGtools with Avira on. After it ran I turned Avira off and ran MGtools again.

All the installing and running of scans went well with no problems.

After running all, the pop-up problem persists.

I hope all is in order and done correctly! Thanks in advance

Not true. It has 3 admin user accounts.
Code:

Users on this computer:
Is Admin? | Username

Your logs were from the Juliana account. Is this the one having problems? Or does the other account have the problem? Or both?

With which browser or browsers are you having problems?

And what popups exactly are you referring too? Your logs are basically clean.
