Laptop Touchpad Isnt Working


For some reason i just turned off my laptop then i came back, turned on my laptop and my touchpad wasn't working and i press caps lock my keyboard doesn't work luckily i have a backup mouse and keyboard. Someone tell me what is happening. Answer:-
Sounds like the cord inside the laptop that connects the keyboard and trackpad to the motherboard of the laptop is lose. If it is under warranty take it in for repairs, if not then open it up and plug it in tight. Also make sure no moisture is around plug while you have it open.

Dell Laptop Touchpad Cursor Moves Randomly

We have been noticing a weird behavior in 2. 5-3 years old dell laptops recently! About 4-5 dell c500s-c600s have terribly weird touch pad behavior, the cursor moves randomly anywhere and then gets stuck in any of the corners of screen. This sometimes goes away when pointer stick is disabled. Other wise it does the same even with external mouse connected. I have done fresh rebuild of all 5 laptops with new drivers. However this problem comes back! Any one observed similar problems?

The Dns Server Isnt Responding

Yesterday night i surfed the web, then somehow it stopped working. I tried using the internet in every program, yahoo messenger, firefox, ie, no were works, except torrent downloads. I tried to put the opendns's, they won't work either. Restarting the router won't work either. I am using windows 7, and at the network and sharing center it looks ok, shows as connected to the internet. I get this error while troubleshooting. I also tried to disable the microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter, that won't work either. Tried to put a static ip, won't work either. I have a laptop using windows xp, on which the internet is working. I also got an exact same laptop, with windows 7, again, internet is working. I really have no idea what is wrong. I tried disabling the antivirus and firewall, to see if it works, but nothing. I also made sure i don't have any bonjour software installed, such as mdnsresponder.exe. Tried flushdns, didn't work, the google dns didn't work either. I am not sure the problem comes from the dns, all other computers have those dns's and are working. Did a virus scan too, with a different antivirus. And sometimes it's loading the page, but very slowly, and at that same time, if i try to load another page, it won't work again. It just say "looking up (ex.google.com)" at the bottom of the firefox browser. It sometimes happen to work, but stops after 5 minutes. I even went to the extreme, and reinstalled windows, the problem persists. I honestly never encountered something so difficult to solve.

Wireless Keyboards With Built-in Touchpad

I was wondering if people could help me add to my list of wireless kbs with built-in touchpads. I'm going to have a single pc hooked up to multiple monitors, with one being a tv monitor, the other two will be "work" monitors for daily browsing. So, for me, this keyboard will be a secondary one that i can leave on the coffee table while i use my microsoft ergo 4000 to type long things. I'm looking to compile a list of good htpc-themed keyboards, and here's how i'm starting it off:

* Ps3 mediaboard pro (remember to re-map a windows key somewhere, and also get a usb bt dongle-under $5)

* Dinovo edge (slightly expensive, especially when used as a secondary keyboard)

* Dinovo mini (handheld device with a multi-function trackpad)

I was wondering if it's possible to change my touchpad ps/2 fresh rate?. I was on google and already tried the regedit under "i8042prt/parameters" create a dword (32-bit) and put 200 (which is the max). After rebooting i'm still running 48hz. I tried ps2rate which was meant to be for windows 95 & 98. However when i set the rate and click ok it says missing "ps2rate. Vxd please put it in the same directory has the exe". The ps2. Rate. Vxd is in the same dir has the exe. Does anyone know of any other application or edit i set the rate at higher for my touchpad?

Touchpad Scrolling Not Working On Remote Desktop

I recently installed remote desktop update on my hp laptop running win xp. After that i noticed that when i connect to other desktop computers, also running win xp, from the laptop, the touchpad scrolling stops working (both on remote comp and on the laptop). If i close the remote desktop connection then after some time scrolling function starts working again. I tired to install synaptics driver update from microsoft website but that didn't fix it. I also have a vaio running vista, and even that gives the same problem. Has anyone else noticed similar problems and know of any solutions. I frequently use remote desktop, so need to fix this.

Dell Inspiron Touchpad Tap Feature

We have an old inspiron here (an 8100 i believe) that has a touchpad and a little nubbin track-point thingy. Both have left and right click buttons with them, the trackpoint's being just beneath the spacebar. We've been trying to find a way to disable just the "tapping" feature on the touch-pad, leaving the pad working only as a pointing device and not a clicking device. The tapping feature of the touchpad is often way too sensitive, registering clicks when you're not trying to do anything but move the pointer around. All we could find so far are programs that work in linux that do this, but nothing that would work in windows. Anyone here know of a solution to this?

Sony Vaio Screen And Touchpad Issue

I have a sony vaio vgn-a140 laptop (15. 4" screen) that is not functioning correctly. The screen has lines up and down it that are the result of a mainboard/video chip hardware issue (i think). I plugged it into an external monitor, and it looked the same (lines, etc). I took it apart to poke around and it appears to have video integrated onto the mainboard. Question 1) does anyone know of a way of fixing this or trying to fix it w/o replacing the mainboard? If i have to replace the board, i may just have to part it out. It's not worth hundreds of dollars to me to fix. Question 2) when i took it apart, i severed the thin ribbon-like cable that connects the touchpad to the mainboard. Really, really dumb move on my part. Is there anywhere to buy one of these? I don't even know what to call it, really. It's copper colored and thin and looks like it would cost $0. 03 to make, but if i can find one, i'm sure it'll be ~$20-$30, or i'll have to buy a whole new touchpad. Sigh.

Compaq Presario V5000 Keyboard / Touchpad Problem

I recently bought a compaq presario v5000 of a friend, the problem with the laptop is, sometimes the touch pad wont work correctly, it moves very erratically or not at all and somtimes the keyboard will completely scramble so all the buttons still work but for example the caps lock key would be the letter "f" and the letter "f" will be return , and other times both the keyboard and touch pad will work completely fine. I thought it could be a bios problem so i updated to the latest version and still the problem remains, i have been searching on google and can't seem to find any info on the problem, has anyone heard of this problem and if so, is there a fix for it? I have taken the laptop apart and made sure that the keyboard and touch pad are connected correctly.

Inspiron 1525 Touchpad Mouse Randomly Hangs To The Corner

I have a inspiron 1525 and the touchpad *** me off. At random times when i move the touchpad south with my fingers it makes a twist emotion and goes northwest. And when i just touch it the mouse randomly hangs to the corner? And when i move it in any directions, at random times it forms a x emotion movement around the screen. Is this because of the drivers? And did i mention i wasted 50 seconds to click the "submit new thread" button?
