LAPTOP HELP PLEASE. touch pad doesnt work.

Question: LAPTOP HELP PLEASE. touch pad doesnt work.

I'm having a similar problem, only this one is self inflicted.

I have a brand new Toshiba Satellite A215. I just got a new USB mouse to use with it, so I wanted to disable the touch pad (since I kept accidentally touching it and messing up whatever I was doing). Well, after about an hour of wandering through the different settings and such looking for the touch pad's disabling option, I found it. Completely by accident, as I was about to give up.

Here's my problem: I forgot how I did it.

So now, I'm unable to use the mouse unless I have a usb mouse plugged in. While this isn't a major problem (I'm pretty decent at navigating with just the keyboard), it is getting extremely annoying when I just want to do something simple, or don't have a good surface to use my laser mouse on.

I'm running windows vista home premium. Anyone who can help, I would appreciate it very much.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi. Welcome to MGs.

Just for future reference, you should start a new thread when you have a question you need answered rather than posting it in one someone else started.

As far as your mouse, you should be able to go into your control panel and click on the mouse icon to access your touchpad controls.

Hello i have a quite new laptop with Wins 8.1. I noticed the other day when it starts up after a short while the touch pad no longer works the cursor remains fixed. But when i put a USB mouse to the laptop the cursor works fine. But when i go back to the touch pad the cursor wont move. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Hope for some help thanks.

Answer:Laptop Touch pad Doesnt work

something is conflicting with the touch pad drivers
earlier on this site someone found that Winamp was causing the conflict.

Hi, you really should not call your sister that, but anyhow she might be a real pain so I continue with my suggestions:
What is the make/model of your laptop? Laptops come with a touchpad utility that kicks in during Windows startup, it might also be listed in the services if using Windows 2000 or XP. So the service or the startup entry in the registry might have been deleted (but not the utility itself), the utility might have been disabled or uninstalled. Even a slimmer chance the touchpad functionality might have been disabled in the BIOS settings as most laptop BIOSes do have a related setting.
Depending on your laptop make/model find out what that utility is (from the manual or company's web site), then check the 'Add-Remove Programs' list to see if the program is still installed (you could also check it in START > Programs or All Programs list which is even better). If it is really missing then download the utility or using the laptop's utility CD (if one exists) re-install the program. If it still doesnt work then last step check the BIOS....these are all I can think of for now...

Toshiba Satellite A200 SKU PSAF6A-02Q01N Synaptics Touch pad issues, scroll doesn't work.

Operating system Win7 x64, re-formatted and upgraded from Vista x32, after having initial problems installing drivers and getting everything to work smoothly (for at least 2 months now), i was successful. Today out of the blue the scroll on the touch pad stopped working.

I read on some forums what to do, most said try uninstalling the driver using CCleaner and reinstall.
Tried to uninstall and re-install driver from Aus Support > Drivers, did this but got error, (something about) not recognising the OS.

I went to the Synaptics website found a driver which was recognised, installed it but not really wanting to restart the pc before i get some advice first. As there is a warning about specific drivers for specific Manufacturers and Models..

Help required, please.

my: hl dt st dvdram gsa t50n ata device doesnt work since i put windows 7 pro on my laptop. It shows up and sometimes works fine but most discs i put in, either DVD or CD will cause errors, crashes, and lack of control of my disc drive. what I mean is once it gives me the error or w/e, the eject button doesnt work and the disc in the drive is spinning at max RPM. If I go to my computer and click (left or right) on the disc drive windows explorer crashes. my driver disc only works for Vista so the driver installed on it is the stupid one signed by microsoft. how do i fix? thanks

EDIT: Okay, I have the right driver installed but that did not fix it. It still spins at max RPM, and freezes windows explorer. Also when I try to shut down it gets stuck at the logging off screen. Any thoughts?

EDIT from down the road: Hey guys, it's been a while but I STILL have this problem, but it's changed a little bit... It now does NOT crash Windows Explorer. The disc drive still spins uncontrollably with a disc in it. The link given in one of the answers does nothing for me because it directs me to use Windows 7's Hardware thing, which finds no problems. I think this is because once this problem starts occurring, the disc drive gets removed from the Device Manager and the system ignores it. If I force-eject the disc from the drive and reboot the computer, the Hardware thing finds no problems with the drive... What now?!

Since we do not know the make and model of your laptop.
Should try the laptop manufacturer's website to see if you can find the drivers for this. Does look like there missing.

You can right click and select update driver software, either search automatically or browse your computer, select signed driver from the list is shows you.

My Laptop is an HP G70-120EA, which I bought 2 years ago. After just one year it started showing problems and the current problems are:
From the past 6 months, on pressing the power button the laptop would not start at all. But after pressing hard, or after trying several times, suddenly and randomly it would start. The adapter seems to be fine. So I thought the problem is in the connection between the power switch and the motherboard.

My Questions are:

1. Is there any alternative way to start the laptop? Any modification, or improvisation?
2. How do I fix the problem myself?

I cannot repair the laptop here,in Bangladesh since I searched almost the whole city and there are NO experts regarding laptops who can fix the problem. I gave it to a well-known repair company and they couldnt fix the problem rather they made other problems as well-- like they cut down the mic and webcam.
Also I am willing to fix these issues myself if it does not require high-risk parmanent damage.
I went to the top dealers of HP here, but they worsened the problem.

Answer:Sound doesnt work in XP with LAPTOP HP DV 4400


It's possible that Windows XP doesn't come with built-in driver support for that particular sound card, and hence, you'll need to manually install the driver.

This is a common problem with laptops that are downgraded to Windows XP. Many of the people do not realise that Windows Vista comes built in with a number of drivers already installed, unlike Windows XP.

I just bought a Toshiba laptop and am running windows 8.

Can someone please help?

Answer:Solved: Laptop Touchpad doesnt work

laptops usually have a third party software that controls how the touchpad operates, however even without that software the touchpad has basic functionality. Check your hot keys (the F keys) in case you accidentally disabled it. The synaptics software can also be used to disable the touchpad, so research how to do that for your model and attempt to re-enable it. Since it is under warranty, if you get stuck, contact Toshiba tech support and they will help you.

I had installed windows xp professional as new and all the hp/compaq nc6000 drivers from the HP website. Everything works except the feature provided with the laptop the sd slot to copy data from doesn't. Before the new winxp installation, the laptop had winxp professional and by just inserting the SD chip the computer detected it. Then, it provided a letter for the drive to access files in the chip. Now, it does not see it at all. No indication of the chip when inserted in the computer. The chip is fine as I tested it with an external reader. There are no drivers if any listed that I could see on the HP support website for the SD chip. I have installed the usb, touch mouse/keyboard drivers. The SD slot does not read the SD chip. Please help

There was a power outage in my apartment last night and my laptop was plugged in at the time. Now when my power cable is plugged into my laptop I cant receive wifi!! Ive double checked and whenever the laptop is just running on batteries it can receive wifi. This is so weird and Im worried the power outage broke something inside my laptop.

The laptop is am Acer Aspire 5100 and the wifi is a Linksys router.

Thankyou, thank you, thank you in advance!


Answer:Wifi doesnt work when power cable plugged in to laptop

Perhaps something has happened to the power adaptor. If you can find an identical adaptor with the same voltage and amperage output, try it at your home.

Hi yall,

I have a HP 15-f111dx laptop with a built in touch screen and I had downgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 and when I did I had disabled the touch screen in Windows 7 settings but now that I've upgraded to Windows 10 I would like to reenable it, but so far I have not been able to.

I've tried going into the pen and touch settings in control panel but I don't see an option there to enable the touch screen. I've also went into device manager which does detect I have a touch screen and uninstalling the driver and restarting my laptop.

If anyone has any ideas to make this work, any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Answer:HP laptop, cannot get touch screen to work

Is the Human Interface Device > HID-compliant Touch Screen (or similar named item) enabled in DevMgr.

Also look at the dependency tab for the monitor and HID device - see if all related items are enabled.

Hi, first i live In Israel and i've called the main support line and they told me they dont deal with my laptop and directed me to the ones who do > their phone is offline all day (when they should be *working* between 9 am to 5 pm). I've called them before a few years ago and they gave me much help.  Hopefully some one in charge can give me a working phone number for support.  I have a lenovo g530 laptop, its overall nice and i got it as a gift few years ago. Its been bugging me for a long time tho.  My questions that i've been thinking of for years:  -I've downloaded the BIOS drivers from the driver page and after installing them on all: windows xp, windows vista, windows 7 they caused a BSOD (blue screen of death) and i had to re-format my computer and re-install windows.

Hello, I own a Lenovo W530 (Machine Type 2438).After installing Windows 10 the Lenovo Solution Center recommended a battery update, which I did, but didnt work. Since that I had some problems with my BIOS, but they stopped (re-enter date) . About two weeks ago, my battery was empty and my laptop crashed.When restarting it my display didn`t work any more. I thought that my display / display cable broke (i had reordered a display a week before due to stripes on my lcd caused by dumb cleaning).After the new display didnt work I noticed that one cable of the intern display connection broke:so I ordered a new intern display connection  After installing it, it didnt work too and I observed, that I can connect and work via an external monitor problemless, but when trying to "duplicate" the laptop screen to the monitor it stays black, as the display does... What do you recommend?  Best regards!

So we have a Lenovo S514 Touch laptop that is just a few months old. We can't seem to get it to hook up to our wireless internet. It connects to other wi-fi internet just fine on our cell phone, mobile hotspot, and other wi-fi networks, just not at home.

I've read MANY different suggestions and tried them all to no avail. We did download the 8.1 update so I did a restore to 8, still not fixing the issue. Have turned off the battery and wi-fi battery saving options, deleted the A/V, and non-essential Lenovo apps.

What do I try next?!

Answer:Wi-Fi WILL NOT work on Lenovo S514 Touch Laptop...

Try changing to name on your wireless router..
There is a way to tell windows to ignore a network and forget a network.. maybe this is what happened,
but I would also figure a Reset or Refresh (not restore) of windows would correct the issue

I've got a Lenovo Y500. I preformed a battery status check last night and now my laptop won't turn on. Battery check required the charger be connected the whole time. It recharged the battery to 100% then discharged it to 0%. When it was discharging if I hovered over the battery icon it would say "plugged in, not charging". At 0% battery life when the check was over, the status came back as "good". Then the laptop turned off and now the light that indicates that that laptop is plugged in, isn't even on. I left it on the charger for 2+ hours and it still isn't working. I've tried taking the battery out and having the charger in to see if it would turn on, to no avail.Its been sitting on my charger for 10+ hours and it still isn't turning on.I hadn't had any problems with the laptop as I was getting about 2 1/2 on power saver and I usually run the check very few months.It comes on for a split second if I press the Lenovo One Key Recovery. Still can't get to the desktop though.

I need to know if there is a stylus I can use which looks and feels quite like a pen, I don't like the compressible rubbery feel of some stylus, they are not smooth enough.

Answer:Which stylus should I use with my Inspiron 15r touch laptop? Will a 'Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel' work with it?

Hi Shaurya,Welcome to Dell community.
Yes you can use stylus pen with this system.
15z has 15.6" LED-Backlit LCD Capacitive Multi-touch screen, so you can use Targus Stylus with this system which Dell recommends. For further help you can click on the below mentioned link: 
The Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel is the newest stylus from Wacom that a user in that forum said works well. The site,  , says it's compatible with the Latitude 10. Technically, any of the non-battery (somehow powered wirelessly by the tablet) powered Wacom stylus should work.

Hi, My G400s series touch screen laptop touch not working. It stops working just one month back. It was purchased around 16 months back. I have done all the trick which suggested on the forum by many users but all in vain. I have always updated with latest updates by Microsoft including Window 8.1/latest driver by Lenovo but I think this is not the issue with Windows upgrade because this was done months back and touch was working perfectly. If this is hardware problem the Lenovo should accept the fault and change the failure part free of cost or come up with some solution because many Lenovo users suffering with this problem. Kindly some one can suggest me where I should approach to get this rectify?

Hi everyone,
I have a 1.5 year old Dell Latitude 3540 laptop, which I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro (from 8.1 Pro). It has a non-touch screen.
For some reason, Windows 10 sometimes thinks it has a touch screen. It then shows the icon for the touch keyboard at the bottom right corner, and when going to Settings->System->About, under "Pen and Touch" it says "Touch support with 2 touch points".
This doesn't really bother me, as it doesn't seem to actually influence anything important. But still, seems pretty strange.
Did anyone else here experience something similar?

As the title states, could I connect a laptop that has no touchscreen capabilities to a touchscreen monitor for the functions? The OS I am discussing by the way is Windows 8.1.
Thanks! :)

I want to buy this mouse to better work with my laptop.
Can somebody give me some feedback on how this glas pane works instead of a scrollwheel? Handling, etc.

Answer:Logitech Touch Mouse 400 for a Laptop with no touch screen

Sorry I can't answer your question, but this post piqued my interest. I use the Logitech 620 touch mouse on a Windows 7 box at work. I find a little touchy and has to tweaked. But I haven't tried the 620 on Windows 8. Because I'm always looking for the perfect mouse, I think I might just pick up the 400 tonight and let you know.

I know that you can play games like XCOM and Master of Orion II on a touch screen laptop, though I was wondering: can I play something like XCOM, while still using touch to play the game?

Answer:Can a touch screen laptop play non-touch screen games...with touch?

I play World of Warcraft which was definitely not designed for touch screen and can interact with the interface just fine on my yoga.

I start the PC, and the net is connected - using cable - I open up my FTP program, FileZilla and it doesnt connect.
I disconnect LAN and reconnect and it FTP works. But when I shut it down and start my PC again, I got to repeat the same process.

Any idea how to get this fixed ?


Answer:FTP doesnt work unless

By disconnect LAN, do you mean you unplug the ethernet cable, or do you repair, or disable/reenable the internet connection from windows?

Also, can you browse the internet from your internet browser without going through the process you described?

i have to type command anyone know why?

Answer:cmd doesnt work on xp

Could possibly be an infection try this and have it checked by a HJT expert here:

To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following:;dl=item5
Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A security expert should take a look at your log - please be patient.

a while back i plugged in my joystick into my front panel usb (man, this sounds like a bad porno script written by a nerd) and my computer just went dead. what happened was the capicators in my PSU just up and popped basically. anyway, i cant use usb 2.0 anymore. its enabled in my bios, its deffinetly supported, its broke on all ports so im not plugging it in in the wrong spot. is it possible that there was like, a voltage irregularity but it only effected my usb 2.0 controller? everything else works as expected.

my mobo is a gigabyte GA-7N400-L

also, i just looked in the hardware manager and theres a question mark next to my Universal Serial Bus controller. i do have the latest drivers for my motherboard and the chipset and whatnot. would i have to install the USB controller seperately then?

Answer:USB 2.0 Doesnt work

Well, since it happened when you plugged something in the USB port then it is very likely it fried something in the USB controller but nowhere else.

You should find out if it was your joystick that caused the damage or your USB ports were wired to the motherboard wrong.

You could get your motherboard replaced if it is under warranty or just buy a PCI USB controller.

Hi, i have a 2 year old emachines desktop, and its been working fine up until now. Whats wrong with it is that when i turn the computer on, it doesnt display anything on the screen, and the mouse and keyboard dont work either, and only the fan is on. Also the light around the power button turns into a solid orange color. Also the computer smells like burned rubber. Also last night i uninstalled my old nvidia drivers, and installed new ones, but it was working fine last night after i had done that.

Please if someone can help me ASAP it would be greatly appreciated

Answer:PC doesnt work, help!!

Take a look at your motherboard. Any of your capacitors swollen or leaking?
