touchpad still not working



  • 1. Battery drains in hibernation, WOL and Sleep & Charge disabled
    I have a much larger than expected draining of the battery charge when my Toshiba Satellite A660-047 is hibernated. Both Wakeup on LAN and Sleep & Charge are disabled. I tried leaving the battery on the shelf for a week, and the charge drained from 100% to 98% over a week of hibernation. I suspect that a part of that 2% drop is energy used in resuming from hibernation. The drop in charge seems quite small when the battery is outside of the laptop. When I leave the battery in the laptop and hibernated it for three weeks, the charge dropped from 100% to 28% (I wanted to check after just 1 week, but forgot to). This is a 72% drop in three weeks. It seems like a large drop, and I believe the laptop is actually drawing current (since the charge degrades neglegibly when the battery is removed from the laptop). What are the typical experiences with this model? I bought it last fall, but haven't used it much.

  • 3. Acer Aspire 8930G RTC Battery location?
    Howdy, I have an Acer aspire 8930G that simply won't boot, and the BIOS is password locked (typical forgotten password). I wanted to clear the password w/a BIOS reset, but don't know where the RTC Battery is located. After looking around, I found top/bottom view diagrams of the 8930 logic board, but nothing labeled on it to indicate where the CMOS/RTC battery is located. I have removed the cover on the underside to access the HDD, SODIMMs, and wireless card, but see no access to the CMOS/RTC battery. Can someone tell me where it is on this, and what the difference between ab 8930 and 8930G is? -- MFB

    I have a DELL Latitude X300. Suddenly the function of all usb ports stopped, including the cd. I have full access to wireless internet only. Any ideas to fix it?
  • 5. Sony laptop battery
    My 9 month old e-series Sony Vaio has a problem with the battery. When left SWITCHED OFF for 3 weeks the battery is flat. The battery is now reporting a degredation in the charging ability and Sony want me to buy a new one for 18. Aparently, batteries are consumables. This laptop has been rarely used in 9 months, on average only a couple of times a month. There are other reports of Sony laptop batteries losing charge when switched off, but Sony won't do anything about it. I was going to buy another laptop this month, but it won't be a Sony now. Don't buy Sony laptops unless you are prepared to buy a battery every year. Oh and have read that the Sony BIOS checks if it is a genuine Sony battery and it won't boot if it's not. If true, you can't buy a cheap replacement battery. Don't buy Sony laptops.

3.need help fixing my dell laptop (display size and touchpad not working)

hi everyone!,

I recently bought a used dell laptop (latitude cpi-a, 366 mhz) and I
am having the following problems:

(HD came blank and installed win 98 installed without any problems)

I can't make the touchpad work, even when it's selected in the setup
from the computer.

The win 98 display are is much smaller than the actual laptop screen.
No matter what I try, I can't increase the display size the laptop
screen one.

Do I need drivers for all this? where can I find them?


4.hp dv1650ca Synaptics touchpad button not working

I'm boggled by this one....

I have a 3 week old hp dv1650ca laptop.

The touchpad worked fine until yesterday.

After not using the touchpad for 1/2 a day, the left touchpad button
stopped working .

The 'tapping' option also stopped working.

I have updated the driver, bios, done a power drain, system restore,
talked to someone at hp who told me to do a complete system
recovery...I would really like to avoid this.

The strange thing is, when I change to a left handed configuration, the
'tapping' feature works and the physical right button works, but the
physical left button still doesn't work.

I cannot get virtual scrolling to work at all, though I wasn't using
that before anyways.

Between the time the button was last working, and when it stopped
working, I upgraded to directx 9, installed and played video games
using my usual usb mouse...I don't know how this would affect it, but
its all I can think of.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


5.touchpad buttons not working ?!

I have a new (6 mos old) hp pavilion ze4315us which is loaded with
windows XP, and the touchpad buttons have never worked correctly.
Originally, the left-click was ok, but now neither works...

The touchpad pointer works, scroll up/down works, and even the "tap"
select/open functionality works.

I have checked settings and the buttons are not disabled.
I have downloaded and installed the latest driver from synaptics.
I have reset BIOS
I have reset touchpad settings.

How can I tell if this is a hardware problem, or just a setting
somewhere I haven't been able to find yet?

gone crazy,
