Preferred Solution: [L635] Lock button clicks but doesnt work?

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.)

Check the settings of your keyboard. The Roccat is designed to disable those keys. You have them set to be ignored.

Dear,Since I didn't upgrade my OS during the free upgrade period from win7 to win10, I reinstalled completely my laptop few days ago and currently I have windows 10 education edition (free edition from university). Some of the drivers were already installed with the windows 10, some of them got installed during the windows update. After I have checked the Device Manager, there is still Unknown Device and the Device Instance Path is (ACPI\HPQ0004\2&DABA3FF&0), so when I googled it turned out that is something connected with the HP Quick Launch Buttons driver. I installed the latest version of the HP Quick Launch Buttons (sp55150) and my wireless connection button is still not working. The strange thing is that all of the other F buttons are working without any problems (brightness, sound, help button, display button etc.) and also the wireless button when pressed, changes the color from white to orange and other way as well. It is very annoying that I can't set it done, after many times installing and reinstalling the driver.I also tried to download the wireless button driver (sp77545) but I somehow can't install it since I am getting the error message 1722 the whole time. Also tried all the Microsoft recomendation solutions but none of them worked.Please help me somehow because it is very annoying and also not good from HP side that not all of the drivers are updated for the Windows 10.Thank you in advance and I hope there is other solution than everything I have trie...

Answer:Wireless button F12 doesnt work

Hi: The driver you need for the 0004 is not the quick launch buttons but this one... This package provides the HP 3D DriveGuard software for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. HP 3D DriveGuard protects the hard drive by "parking the heads" if the notebook is accidentally dropped or is abruptly impacted by another object. Perhaps you weren't aware that HP does not support your notebook for W8, W8.1 or W10. Since they don't support your model series for W10, they don't provide any driver support for W10. Your model doesn't need the wireless button driver for the F12 key to work because unless you have an unknown device in the device manager with a hardware ID of ACPI\HPQ6001, the hardware doesn't exist. You have a problem with the wireless card not being compatible with W10, and it is not working--even though the driver may be installed.

Windows XP Professional sp3, up to date, kaspersky anti virus, it's a logitech g15 keyboard, the non-gaming one (orange lights, much easier on the eyes) aaaaand.. that's it?

It worked before I re-installed windows.

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.

Toshiba Satellite U205-s5034

Answer:Satellite U205 - FN button doesnt work

For such problems you must offer more useful information.
It is very important to know if this WXP is your own installation and have you installed all necessary drivers, tools and utilities offered on Toshiba support page.

You have US notebook model and you can find all stuff on

Before you start to install Toshiba specific tools and utilities at first you must install Toshiba Common modules. It is basic tool for all other utilities.

Sorry but at this point I cannot say more than that because I don?t know what are you doing exactly.

Please offer more details and we can continue our discussion.

I've just a simple questions (maybe): I recognized, that pressing the NUM LOCK key causes the LED of that key to flash on, ok thats`s normal, but also the CAPS Lock key LED turns on weak.

Now, when I'm pressing the CAPS Lock the LED gets brighter.
Switching off NUM Lock turns off the LED, thats ok, the CAPS LOCK is still burning bright (because it was pressed as well).
Pressing CAPS LOCK again turns the LED off.

Funny thing is: Pressing the CAPS Lock forces the LED of it and the LED of the NUM LOCK to turn on.....

Any ideas or hints?

I can't seem to get my computer to lock using the power button.  I followed the directions ...right click toolbar, click properties, click start menu, under "power button action", choose "lock".  I clicked apply and nothing.  I restarted the computer... and nothing.  I even set what the power button does in the battery/power configuration to "do nothing" (there is no "lock" option in the power option).  Anyone know why it doesn't work? Additionally, I am very disappointed about the function key / ctrl key swap in BIOS.  I assumed the swap would enable the ctrl key on the right side of the keyboard but it does not.  So I am still stuck using TWO hands to do something as simple as adjust my screen brightness (which I do consistently because I have very sensitive eyes).  I then tried the function lock option in BIOS, and of course that doesn't work either as all other keys won't function with the lock in place.   And one other gripe is that the lock feature requires you to press enter to lock (so a three-key process and requires BOTH hands to work). It's nice to have the option to just press one key once to get the computer to lock (like my old HP).   Anyone know any software that can allow me to adjust screen brightness or lock the computer with the press of ONE key?  Or at the very least allow me to do it with one hand?   This is my first Thinkpad and from a productivity/efficiency standpoint, I'm ...

I recently have had some computer problems. When i started up my computer this morning, the HD made a continuous clicking noise and my computer recognized my HD wrong. The BIOS detects the wrong HD and my computer wont start up. I have seen no indication of my HD failing, it has worked fine until this morning. What could of cause this? Should I buy a new HD? If i do have to buy a new HD, how to i get my files off of my old HD (or are they lost forever). Please help me. Thanx.


Answer:my hd clicks and my bios doesnt recognize it

What brand, western digital????

Sounds like it bit the dust.
If the files are really important and you don't mind paying a lot of money you can take it to ontrack or a couple others. But it's expensive. If you plan on this do not try to boot it any more.
If you want to see if you get lucky, shut the computer down, take the case off, and gently tap the sides of the hard drive with a screw driver handle, then hope it spins up when you try to boot. This worked once for me on a western digital, once it didn't.
If it spins up you better get a new drive installed and copied right away. No telling how long it will last.
I recommend IBM hard drives, will never buy a western digital again. My opinion probably not shared by a lot of others.

I see you have realtek onboard sound. Open the Sound Manager and in the information section try changing the "Display icon in notification area" setting a few times and see if it gets it working again.

If not, one other question do you use multiple monitors? Sometimes this can cause the volume icon to malfunction as it loses track of where it is!

Hi, im using a Packard Bell butterfly touch and until recently this had been my linux machine with my full size laptop running windows, however with windows 8 I decided id utilize the touchscreen on this machine and have a swap around. Replaced Ubuntu with Windows 8 fine however now on some of my keys the fn key is reversed (Ive included a picture to show which keys). The keys affected imply that number lock is on, however it is not and i have ensured so using registry editor, stick keys is not on either.

Any help much appreciated as this is driving me mad and makes typing very awkward...

As in title. In browser, middle mouse button opens link in new tab, but instead of one, it opens two of them, just like i would click the button twice. I'm using opera and a razer mouse. Fresh windows 7 install.

Answer:Middle mouse button double clicks

Have you been able to get this figured out yet?

1. Check the Mouse settings in Control Panel.
2. Is there any software that came with the Razer mouse? If there is, install or re-install that, and check the settings.
3. Re-install the driver.

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!

I don't think I've ever seen this happen with a mouse before. If I hold down any of the mouse buttons, instead of sending through a single click command and holding it it sends a repeated click signal (holding down once = much like holding down a letter on your keyboard sends a repeated signal for that letter. Any idea how to stop this, it's really messing up my work. Thanks! HP Wireless Optical Mobile Mouse (VK479AA)

I have the same problem with the HP wireless optical mobile mouse (WE788AA) that I just purchased.  Problem occurs across multiple programs (IE, MS Office, etc).  Does not happen with my wired HP mouse.  Is this from a setting that can be changed, or do I need to return the mouse as defective?

Normally, the left mouse button is mouse button #1 and the right button is button #2. When configured for left-handed use, the relationships are reversed.

My left button sometimes generates two clicks, making it hard to change the status of a checkbox, or ordering two items in Amazon instead of one (hence I have two Kenwood Mini Choppers, and four Lithium 14500 batteries instead of 1 and 2, respectively).

As a diagnostic, I've been asked to switch to left-handed setup. This is a brilliant diagnostic tool as it will instantly identify if the problem is with the left physical button.

Can anyone suggest something in Windows 7 (Utimate x64) that responds in a noticeable way to a double mouse button 2 click? I tried context menus in Explorer, but explorer seems to ignore the second "right" click.

The only application that I know of which explicitly supports a double-right click is IBM's Lotus Notes, but I no longer have that (and it's a lot to install for a simple mouse test)

So recently my computer for work got knocked over. When I push the power on button, the computer starts to get going and makes a series of 3 clicks. Before the monitor even turns on, the computer just shuts off. I am guessing something got damaged when it got knocked over. I was hoping someone would have a rough idea.

Answer:Computer clicks when I push the power button then wont turn on

rough idea:
open it up and make sure all the cables are secure and nothing metal has been knocked around..if still no dice, then start by disconnecting each device (i would check the hard drive(s) 1st, as they are probably most prone to damage) 1 by 1 until you have eliminated all that you could, besides the power plug to the motherboard .
i would start with also checking to make sure the cpu fan didnt fall off.

This is the first problem I've had which I've not been able to solve myself, either via google or sheer trial and error. It's by far the strangest thing I've come across.

As the title implies, after pressing any key, my left/right mouseclick won't work for a second or so. However, it's not exactly consistent across programs.

For example, I recently got guild wars 2. After typing, neither mouse click will work. I've also found that notepad/word share this.
On chrome/desktop/my media player, only the left click will stop functioning.
When playing league of legends, both keys will continue to function normally.

It's nothing hardware related and I have restarted.

And ermmm...yeah. Completely stuck. Thanks in advance to anybody who can help.

Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to figure out an issue that just started happening in the past two days.

The issue is: my mouse clicks won't work on programs or on the desktop. I can move the mouse around, but the click don't work (for example, I can't click in Chrome, task manager, or desktop). The clicks only work on the taskbar (minimizing/maximizing). However, I'm able to navigate with the programs using my keyboard.

It's a really odd problem. Additionally, I would like to add that I have two mice available (bluetooth and touchpad) and the problem occurs for both. As such, I think the problem is not a hardware related issue in regard to the mouse itself.

My first thought was a virus/malware; however, I perform viruscans daily. I also ran scans from ad-aware and malwarebytes and neither program found anything. According to both, my system is clean. Additionally, mcaffee didn't pick anything up either.

Restarting doesn't help (in fact it can happen right after I reboot).

He suggested this forum as more appropriate. My first indication something was amiss was when playing the card game Hearts, the focus would pulse thru each of my cards very rapidly. I was able to select a card if I repeatedly clicked on it while moving the mouse. Similar behaviorr in all card games included with Win7. After rebooting the card game behavior might clear up, but restarting the game would bring the behavior back.

This is going to sound so weird, but bear with me...

I just got a Qosmio x770/00x a couple of weeks ago, mostly for gaming purposes.
I play in left-handed configuration, using the Num pad as directional keys, with some of the other non-directional numbers mapped to things like 'jump' and 'melee', etc.

I have the '1/End' key mapped usually to the 'Crouch' motion in games, and noticed that if I press the '6/Right' key, in combination with any other number key, the '1/End' key won't register!
This means if I'm moving Forwards in a game, and Strafe to the right, I can't simultaneously crouch.

I've done a bit of playing around, and it seems that this bug isn't limited to my unit, or to any particular program. If you try a similar thing in any other program (eg Notepad), and hold the '6' key down along with any other number key, the '1' key won't register.

However it seems that it *has* to be the '6' key in the combination (eg. if you press '4' and '7' together, and then press '1', the '1' will still register.

Have also tried this on the store demo model at the local computer place, and it seems that it's a problem with this particular model.

The store computer runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
I'm running Win7 Pro. BIOS and Windows are fully updated.

Have also tried it on my older P-series Satellite, and that doesn't have the same problem.

Any ideas?

Answer:Qosmio x770/00x - button 1 does not work pressing 6 and other button


>I've done a bit of playing around, and it seems that this bug isn't limited to my unit, or to any particular program. If you try a similar thing in any other program (eg Notepad), and hold the '6' key down along with any other number key, the '1' key won't register.
>However it seems that it has to be the '6' key in the combination (eg. if you press '4' and '7' together, and then press '1', the '1' will still register.

I?ve got 2 notebooks from two different manufactures and the button 1 does not register if 6 + other button is pressed.

Don?t think it?s a really a keyboard bug because this happen with my two notebooks which are not really similar to each other?

I updated to windows 10, 2 weeks ago and have had no problems until last night. I've restarted my computer and tried everything I could think of to fix it, but nothing has worked.

Answer:My start button, search bar, or my new notification button won't work?,

hmmm, sounds like registry fault... happened to my dads pc win 10 installation after trying to change C/Users/Username paths to another Username folder. Try this sfc /scannow in admin Cmd prompt. Try this windows+r type netplwiz, go to properties and compare username with your username path in c/users/username. If they don't match that's the problem, they need to match! Restart Pc and start, search etc will work. Download Malwarebytes and scan. If not open system restore and restore PC to an earlier point. But I guess you're using some cleaning utility like CC cleaner and so on... Uninstall that, it causes some serious issues, and breaks more stuff than fixes. And for last resort do a clean win 10 install. :D

Thinkpad T61 caps lock not glowing, but its functioning well. Only light doesnt glow. Any suggestions. Is it a drivers issue or any settings in BIOS. Please suggest. Thanks,

Answer:Thinkpad T61 caps lock not glowing, but its functioning well. Only light doesnt glow.

Most likely the CapsLock LED is defective. If so this won't be an easy or inexpensive repair. 
Probably the most expedient solution would be to install an on-screen CapsLock indicator utility, e.g. Hotkey Features Integration for ThinkPad or  CapsLock v4.2.0 ("A utility program that gives an on-screen display and optional audible indication of the keyboard CapsLock key state.")

As stated above, I have a Dell Inspiron 1501, I tried to power up last night, and it froze that the BIOS loading screen. I left it alone to see if anything would happen, 15 minutes later i held down the power button, and it didn't shut down like it's supposed to, i held it down for more than 10-13 seconds. I tried to start it up, I heard the fan start up as it usually does, but nothing comes up on the Display and the Caps Lock LED flashes continuously. I began searching online for possible problems, did some troubleshooting because i refuse to call Dell(Always get problems), and came up with it being a possible RAM problem. I unscrewed the back, and removed both sticks, and tried starting up with each stick in a different slot, then with just one stick on each slot. no luck. Then i tried to see if i could get the two LEDs to show up for the POST, by removing both sticks, and now the caps lock doesnt even flash, nor does anything come up on the screen.
Please Help.

Answer:Caps Lock Flashes Dell Inspiron 1501 Doesnt Boot

Did it give you any beeps when both sticks of memory where out following your turning it on?

If it doesn't beep while having no memory then it is likely that your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Question: Lock button

I just got a DELL Dimension E520. On the shutdown window is a button that reads LOCK. If I Push it and my compute locks, how do I unlock it.

Answer:Lock button

When you press lock, it will show a login screen and prompt you for your password, when you enter your password, it will be unlocked and your applications will be restored back to point when you locked it!

The NUM LOCK key will not stay on when I turn on (boot Up) this PC. The only way I can get to work is to Turn Off "Fast Start Up" but my PC takes a littler longer to boot up. Is there a fix for this when using "Fast Start Up" checked? Thanks

I have my PC set to install updates at 3AM automatically but if I see an update alert in the task-bar, I will usually go ahead and install them manually. I use my PC as my alarm clock and require a password to logon so if windows update reboots my PC in the middle of the night, I am going to have a bad start to my day. I have noticed the past several times after installing windows defender updates manually, the little update symbol in shutdown in the start menu does not go away. When I hover over the button, it says install updates and shut down PC. I check for more updates and there are none available. Normally the shutdown button puts the PC to sleep. When it happens i just reboot to avoid the PC automatically rebooting in the middle of the night and the button goes back to a sleep button. I am afraid though that one day i will forget and oversleep because the PC rebooted. Is there a way to fix this apparent bug?

Answer:After WU start menu shut down button doesnt clear

Turn off automatic updates should fix this. Unless I misinterpreted your question.

I broke my lock button and i cant take screenshots, is there any other way or app to take it?

Answer:Brocken lock button

Check under settings and touch if your phone has 'double tap to wake'. Use that to unlock your screen and use Touch Lock by VILIC to lock your screen. Been doing that since I bought my 520. Lock button used only for powering on & off the phone.
