Laptop Inbuilt Synaptics Mouse & External Mouse Fail To Work


On my ~1 year old win xp pro laptop, the inbuilt synaptics mouse and any external mice, ps2 or usb fail to work. I'm having to use it via keystrokes only, so even typing this is hard to get to it. I've had this problem since this morning. I brought it downstairs (its kept upstairs) and turned it on, and when it booted to the welcome screen, the pointer was in the center and my ps2 optical mouse (chic) wasn't responding, although the actual led bit was on. I tried my touchpad (synaptics model) and that also doesn't work. The animated icon in my systray didn't respond to my touches. I have since tried 2 other mice, one ps2 and 1 usb, and i have had no luck. The only way to control my mouse is using mousekeys (ugh) or using a mouse via vnc. I have no hardware devices listed in my mouse hardware list in the control panel. I am not sure if it is a hardware or a software problem, but if i fear the worst, and it's hardware, perhaps my ps2 controller thingy busted? Although it shouldn't take out usb or touchpad either. I hope its more of a software problem, but after rolling back system restore point from last friday (when it definately worked), i have had no luck. I have also reinstalled the drivers for my usb mouse and the driver cd that came with my laptop. I am really stuck, and i won't be able to take it into technical support until monday. I really hope to have this fixed asap. Any help you can give me would be great, and as i use my laptop a lot, i'm really stuffed, everything else seems to be working okay, and i have not noticed any other problems, although there was a process in task manager using about 92% of cpu called sypad or something similar.

Laser Mouse Wont Work

Lase mouse doesn't work on my computer in any jack. Anything else works in any jack. I use a ball mouse because that works fine. I plug in a laser mouse and it turns on and off while making the noises as if being plugged in and then unplugged and this happens about 30 seconds after i plug the mouse in and it happens by itself. I went to school for fixing computers so please don't give me an obvious answer like 'try using a different mouse" or "try using a different jack". I have tried everything which is why i am asking on yahoo. It seems like it might have happened immediately after i installed vista service pack 2. It's most likely a software problem and don't try to find this problem on google because you won't. Don't you think i tried that? It seems that i am the only person on the internet with this same problem! Again old fashion ball mouse works newer laser mouse doesn't work

Does Logitech G5 Will Not Work On Black Colored Mouse Pad ?

Has anyone here heard of the rumors that this mouse will not work on a black colored mousepad? If this is true, logitech really f'ed up and made a big mistake. A friend is looking to buy the g5 and had heard that it will not work on a black surface. There are even claims that logitech has confirmed this and is simply telling people to go out and buy a blue mousepad.

Plugged Mouse In Wrong Slot, Now Keyboard Doesn't Work

I recently built a new computer and got a new keyboard, ms natural ergonomic keyboard 4000 (usb). I installed everything and the keyboard was working fine for a couple of weeks. I was using my mouse on my old computer then when hooking it back to my new computer accidently plugged it into the ps2 keyboard slot instead of the mouse. When i turned on the computer neither was working, so i then noticed the problem. Tried to switch them and now i can't get my keyboard to work again. I have tryed uninstalling, rebooting, reinstalling the keyboard for a few hours. Trying everything i can think of. If i plug my old keyboard into the ps2 keyboard slot and boot up it works, but can't get the new one to work through usb. I've tryed different usb slots. I'm out of ideas. Does anyone know anything that i could try?

Message: No Mouse Is Connected - Mouse Stop Working

Every 30 minutes or so of using my pc causes my mouse to stop working. When this happens everything else continues to work. Also on occasions when the mouse is connected normally a message appears on start up telling me that no mouse is connected. These problems have occured with 3 different mice and with mice connected to both usb and the normal mouse port. Therefore i think the problem is my computer rather that dodgy mice.

Ms Sidewinder Mouse's 3 Sets Of Different Mouse Feet

Has anyone tried the different sets of mouse feet that come with the sidewinder mouse? It suppose to come with different textures of teflon. But i haven't been able to get an info on the attributes of each set of mouse feet which they call glide. It seems to me that the white set seem to glide the easiest out of the 3 sets offered. Even when the white set of feet are dirty they do seem to glide easier or glide similar when cleaned.

Ratpadz Xt Mouse Pad For Logitech G9 Mouse

I have the g9 mouse which is awesome but my current mouse pad seems to not work sometimes. It acts like a ball mouse does when you don't clean it for a long time. It skips and doesn't seem to track till i mess with it. It is rare when it happens but it does happen. The mouse pad i use is just a cheap cloth one i got from fry's for 3 bucks. I was looking into getting a new mouse pad. Specifically the ratpadz xt because i can send it back if i don't like it or it doesn't work the way i am expecting it to. Does anyone have a g9 mouse and a ratpadz xt pad? How does it work? Do you have something else you prefer over the ratpadz xt? I want to get a pad that doesn't skip.

Msi K7t266 Pro2 Ru Bios Update Fail, Recovery Fail

I've got a msi k7t266 pro2 ru ( raid / usb2. 0 ) mobo. I probably flashed it with the wrong bios, and now the board is dead. What is curious is the post, i get no video but 2 very short beeps and 8 short beeps. ( Cmos shutdown register r/w error ? Can i battle this ? )

The typical amibios solution, ctrl+home + amibios. Rom on the fdd brings no results ( alhtough the 4 beeps - flash complete - were there. And i used the right bios that time. And various other ( older ) versions of it ). The backuped bios file produces the same results ( 10 beeps on post, board dead ). After some time, during the fdd "blind flash" the board started to produce two longer beeps in intervals and would fail to flash. Cleared the cmos. The diagnostic led's on the board light up in


I would really appreciate any suggestions.

Oc Fail, Please Enter Setup To Change Oc Fail Settings

When i turned my computer on, i kept getting the error message

"Oc fail, please enter setup to change oc fail settings"

I googled this and found that i needed to change the oc setting to disabled instead of auto. I didn't know what this meant or how to do it. I must have changed something (still not sure what), and now when i turn on my computer, i get this message:

"Boot from cd/dvd disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter"

I do that, and then i get this message:

"Setup did not find any hard disk drives in your computer"

Then, i restarted the computer and pressed f6 as it was starting up"

Now, i get this message: "setup could not determine the type of one or more mass storage devices installed in your system, or you have chosen to manually specify an adapter. Currently, setup will load support for the following mass storage device(s):

*To specify additional scsi adapters, cd-rom drives, or special disk controllers for use with windows, including those for which you have device support disk from a mass storage device manufacturer, press s

*If you do not have any device support disks from a mass storage device manufacturer, or do not want to specify additional mass storage devices for use with windows, press enter

What do i do?

If Disconnect Laptop Screen, Will External Screen Still Work ?

If i disconnect my laptop's screen, will an external screen still work? I have an acer aspire5315 laptop. What i am doing is i am putting it into a custom case that will not fit the built-on screen. The laptop does have a vga output (so i can connect it to another monitor, or hdtv. ) So, if i disconnect the laptop screen completely from the motherboard, will an external one connected via vga still work?

Ergonomic Mouse And Mouse Pad

I need something for my right wrist, which was shot all to *** last year by a temp job that required massive amounts of 10-key data entry and an obscene amount of clicking and dragging of the mouse. I probably have carpal tunnel in the damn thing right now, or at least i am dangerously close. I bought some sort of beanbag to go under my wrist for $10 last year. It hurt my wrist bad, which was the opposite of what it said it would do. I bought a gel mousepad with a gel resting pad for my wrist for $20 last year. It hurt my wrist bad, which was the opposite of what it said it would do. So, obviously i can't search for myself because i always end up buying crap that only makes things worse.

Is It Bad To Use A Mouse Without A Mouse Pad ?

Is it bad to use a mouse without a mouse pad? I have logitech g5 mouse, and i was using it without a mouse pad but i figured out that my computer table has a smooth surface and more space to work with. The g5 glides well too as it has polytetrafluoroethylene feet as well, so it's smooth. So is it ok without a mouse pad?

G7 Vs G5 Mouse

So i have had a cheap mouse (spent like $5 on it) and it is finally giving away - lasted me 5 years. The scroll button is not working that great anymore and since i use this with my laptop as well i dropped it a few times and it is a little screwed up. So i am looking to get either of these mice. The price difference is about $20-25. So whats the difference between these for gaming? If there really isn't any i will just get the g5.
