  • 1. Dell Inspiron 8100 Vertical Lines on display
    I just picked up a Dell 8100 for free from a friend I did some work for. All is fine except 5 vertical lines on the screen going the full height of the display. Not all the same color but one of them flashes off and on sometimes. Display on external monitor is fine. I removed the connector to the motherboard and blew it out with canned air but problem remains. Dead LCE or..?? Thanks for any help JohnS

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,
