Q: Can you replace t410 front mouse buttons???????

Hi, one of the mouse buttons at the front of the pad came apart a few weeks ago, and today so did the second one! there are a lot of videos showing how to replace a keyboard key, but none about how to replace these mouse buttons. No sign of any damage / broken pieces. Photo attached This is not a machine used alot either. Any help would be greatfully received! BTA

Preferred Solution: Can you replace t410 front mouse buttons???????

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.)

A: Can you replace t410 front mouse buttons???????

I cannot tell if the plastic clips are damaged without close inspection, but it looks like the 2 rubber cups that provide the spring for the buttons are missing. I have never done very well getting them to attach to the base and I have tried several adhesives.

You can replace the touchpad from the keyboard, but taking it apart is easier the 2nd time and the cable clips are fragile.

Hello there, My Thinkpad's cursor is having freezing issues after upgrading to win10. When I move the cursor, it once in a while freezes and it's not related to the trackpad or trackpoint. I plugged in an external mouse and had the same problem again. I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them, the problem is still there. I really don't know what else to do. I checked all the settings on synaptics, searched the whole internet. Still couldn't have found a solution for it. Here on this link people with Lenovo laptops are having the same issue as well. Will Lenovo solve this problem and maybe put a new driver on the official site? Thank you

Ok I purchased a used Alienware M7700 laptop and am very happy with the machine, except for the fact that all the software I got with it was the Alienware Xp disk. I do not have any of the utilities CD. so while the machine runs fine I am wondering if there is a way to pick up the utilities CD or a way to get those front panel buttons to work correctly...

My laptop called HP Pavilion dv6-1100so Entertainment Notebook PC
This laptop has front panel touch buttons above the keyboard for volume controller such as mute button, Volume Increase/Decrease buttons,Play,Next & Previous buttons, stop button and at last it has Wireless on/off button.These buttons were working by touching the buttons once.After 5 or 6 months usage,these buttons stopped responding when I touched them.I don't really get the reason.I tried to restore by using Windows Vista system Restore program but there is no change.I tried to see the device manager, but there is no visible error.But I can control these buttons using the keyboard and buttons from task bar system tray at the right corner.What shall I do?

I want to adjust in the first instance the brightness and contrast controls by using the buttons on the front panel. No way can I either move from one adjustment to the other, nor can I operate the up/down arrows to alter the brightness and contract settings. Dell talks of using the OSD menu ( presumably accessed by the front screen buttons) but again 'no luck', so I can't do any tests they want done.

I'm utterly stumped. Anyone able or willing to help? Please!

Could someone from Lenovo let the forum know if it will be possible to replace the W540 Trackpad / Bezel / Keyboard assembly with the new one from the W541 which has integrated physical Trackpoint buttons.  This would make a very big difference to me and I suspect a lot of other W540 owners who use the Trackpoint. I am the current owner of 5 Thinkpads and have been a loyal customer since the 600 series. The increased pressure necessary to generate a less reliable click on the Trackpad has greatly exacerbated a problem with the top joint of my right thumb - I have had to retrain myself to use my left thumb to do all clcking.  The problem was nowhere near as bad on the old Trackpoint buttons - where I could use them with my right thumb for several hours with no symptoms, I can now manage only minutes. 

A:Replace W540 Keyboard with W541 Trackpoint Buttons

Add me to the list of W540 that wish to have a real workstation with original IBM style trackpad WITH BUTTONS! Similarly, we need to somehow add an LED to indicate HD I/O's. Maybe integrate this into the new PROPER trackpad. Example: Right now I'm copying off my NAS, 2.5 gig of PDF files catalogued by Calibre. The transfer has been running over 2 hours and only 35% done, and I have NO IDEA if data is transferring when the screen blanks out.  Thankfully, Western Digital's external Passport drive has an LED that flashes with the I/O, and this is the ONLY indicator that tells me the NAS data flowing and being backed up to the USB drive. Crypting does slow the data. Now, I realize that what I'm doing is not the best - using my WiFi connect for the transfer and USB 3.0 -, which is slow on this 'marketing promoted' Workstation. Hopefully I stuck it in the right port, as none are color blue identified, left front. ....  I'm blue <g>.

Hi guys

I don't like the 'embedded' record selectors that can be enabled/disabled for an Access Continuous Form.

I'd rather have a Radio type of button to select the record. Based on the chosen record, I can then do other "stuff".

Is there a way to do this?

The ultimate background is that if I show (say) 10 records at a time in my form, I want to be able to give the user the choice to:

- Open the record
- Copy the record to a new record
- Delete the record

To do this, I'd normally click the ugly Record Selector and perform the task, but as I say, I don;t like the ugly MS Record Selector!

Any ideas?

I have had a look but can't find anything

I have the 'World of Warcraft Cataclysm MMO Gaming Mouse' but i'm struggling to figure out a way to assign the buttons to Windows/Explorer commands such as:Browser Forward
Browser Back

I have sorted it for the WOW game but would like to create a new profile for general use in windows.


A:How to assign mouse buttons

Was there any documentation that came along with the mouse?

This is a 15page PDF online manual that seems to cover what you need:

5. Button Assignment Panel*
6. Mouse Properties Panel*
7. Illumination Panel*
* Panels are closed by default; press the panel tab to open.

And it covers new profiles and macros.

This link explains how to find the user guide for the SteelSeries Engine: FAQ - SteelSeries - Where do I find the user guide for the SteelSeries Engine?

There are youtube videos that might be helpful.
I am hoping of course that you do have the SteelSeries Mouse.

I got a Trust mouse, about a year old. It worked perfectly on my previous Vista laptop (HP), but for some reason the same drivers won't install on my new laptop (Acer).

Now for some reason, the left button behaves like the right button, and the right button like the left. Third, fourth and fifth button work as normal though. Fourth and fifth are on opposite side and are not flipped.

Left and right button on my laptop work as they should.

Any suggestion on how to fix this?
Will any drivers for any mouse with 5 buttons and tilt scroll wheel work?

A:Mouse buttons reversed

Hi, The easiest way to solve this may be to run Windows System Restore.  If you have Norton Internet Security installed, you will need to disable Nortons Tamper Protection as shown in Step 2, on the link below. Once you've done this, shut down the PC.  Windows System Restore is usaully best run in Safe Mode.  Tap away at f8 as you start the PC to enter Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and hit enter.  When this has loaded, from the Start Menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and launch System Restore.  Pick a restore point before the mouse buttons swapped funtions and then proceed with the restore process.  When complete, Windows will reboot as normal. If the above doesn't help, post back with the full Model No. of your notebook and the operating system you are using. Regards, DP-K

I have a Kensington Expert Mouse (trackball), and need to program the buttons so when I click/chord left+right it translates that into a middle mouse button..

Kensington had a utility to do this in XP (Mouseworks), but it is not Vista supported and in fact they are dropping it saying this function already exists in Vista..

How can I program the buttons so left+right=middle..?

If you have Vista x32 then, it might support the trackball mouse but if you have Vista x64, than that's where the problem may be.

Have you tried setting this on the Vista Control Panel option by any chance? I doubt it will work but, perhaps worth a try.

I have just bought a mouse (A4 X-748K) and I'm having problems with the 4th and 5th buttons. When I try to map them to a custom control in a game it says that I have pressed the 'left alt' button. I have not done this in any custom mapping tool so I am confused as to why it is saying this. The buttons work in web browsers to go back/forward.

Any ideas? They would be greatly appreciated.

Earlier today I switched my mouse to a Logitech MX700 and after the drivers installed I noticed that the mouse clicks were screwed up. To start off, my left mouse button does not register until after I release the button, instead of registering before, so now I can't highlight text or anything and my right mouse button, it registers two clicks now, instead of just one. Does anybody know what the problem could be? I've already tried reinstalling the drivers and updating them, but that didn't help.

Running Windows 7, an Agama m-355t wired mouse.

The drivers install fine, but the 4th and 5th buttons (on the sides of the mouse) don't have anything mapped to them by default. The software that came with the mouse to program it appears to possibly not be installing properly, or possibly just be badly-written, because it doesn't do anything. I've installed it off of the CD, uninstalled it, installed it off the Agama website, same thing happens every time.

Is there some way I can manually go into my registry or settings (the 'Mouse' settings on the control panel are no help) and map the mouse buttons? Even to just map them to something random so that X-mouse Button Control can intercept it.

After having to re-install Windows 7 on my laptop I've found that the trackpad and associated mouse buttons are no longer working. The keyboard works fine.The touch screen works fine.When I inserted an external mouse, it automatically installed the driver and worked without issue.I installed the Synaptics TouchPad Driverbut that didn't make any difference. I also tried removing the battery, holding the power button for 30 seconds, re-instering the power cable (but not the battery) and booting up the latop.  It was working fine before the re-install so I can ssume i's not a hardware fault and if the keyboard works the interface cable is also working... Just wondering if anyone has had the same issue and can suggest anything?

A:can't bind mouse buttons in games

I suggest installing the driver for the mouse.  You will have to choose the appropriate one from two choices; one for English speaking countries and one for other countries.  This problem can be caused by many things.  It is normally software related.  Installing the driver for the mouse is a good place to begin.  In some instances, it can be incompatibility with the game source code. Please click the "Thumbs up + button" if I have helped you and click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.

My Samsung R580 / Win 7 laptop works fine, but when i plug in a USB optic mouse (and i've tried a few) they all reverse the buttons and changing in Control Panel only reverses the track pad. It has no effect on the mouse. - Also not improved by using different USB port.

Any ideas?

Hi, My mouse is 4 years plus old.
It has always been stable and no problems until the last few days..
the little rubber feet are worn....and lately I get no mouse sometimes on booting up.
I have Windows 2000, and have cleaned the mouse, troubleshooted the mouse, and all the drivers it says are up to date, and it says the mouse is not conflicted and this "device works properly" says all the good stuff.....but
Sometimes it is not there at the boot up, and I have to check the connections at the ports and manually reboot, etc.
Is there a way to see if I have a mouse takeover or virus in it, or is my mouse just too old now...any help would be appreciated...
It is a microsoft PS/2 mouse....Thanks

Hello Lenovo Community, I have a Lenovo T440s but the three mouse buttons above the clickpad do not work. However if I uninstall the synaptics driver, the mouse buttons work but then click won't, kinda. Only tap to click works, no two-finger scrolling.  If I install the synpatics driver the mouse buttons do not work and I get full multi geasture support for the clickpad.  Lenovo Technical supports wants me to ship the PC.  Does anyone else have a different solution. Even in the mousepad settings, the mouse buttons do not show. Thank you

Hi all,
I have Dell KM714 keyboard / mouse combo. The mouse has two side buttons but it's very easy to press the right sided button by mistake when using it. Annoyingly this the mouse to freeze and not do anything.
I'd like to disable this mouse button but Windows 10 thinks this mouse only has 2 buttons and non of the Dell software or drivers help me edit these side buttons. I have tried using third party software such as X Mouse Button but this hasn't helped either.
Can anyone lend a hand?

Hi, my mouse model is a Logitech Marathon M750 (Wireless).

I just got this mouse along with a keyboard in a mouse-keyboard combo I got off Amazon. The keyboard works great, completely functional, but the mouse, not as much.

The mouse's left click, right click, middle click, scrolling, etc., all work perfectly, but oddly, the cursor is not moving despite my attempts to move it. My previous mouse I had was also by Logitech, a M135/M125 (also wireless), with a fully functional cursor ability and button ability. I'm actually using that M135/M235 to post this.

This is the first forum post I have posted anywhere on tech support, because usually I get the problems figured out, but this has me baffled. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

A:Mouse cursor not moving, but the buttons work

Sounds like the mouse is faulty. If the buttons are working, you should be able to move the cursor as well.

My wife's Dell Inspiron Laptop suddenly started locking up when coming out of sleep mode. The mouse moves, but nothing else works including clicking either mouse button or any keys on the keyboard. I have changed the power settings to "Never" and now it does it after about 5 minutes if the computer is idle. As long as I am working on it, then it doesn't lockup.

I have already done the following:

Changed the RAM with another Inspiron 1545.
Changed all Power Settings to "Never"
Run HiJackThis (Nothing pertinent)
Run Spybot, Ad-Aware, CCleaner, & AVG (nothing pertinent)
Not installed any new hardware (other than the RAM after this started happening)

Attempted to Defrag in Safe Mode and it will not get past 1% even after 48 hours!

Thanks for any and all help!

A:Keyboard and Mouse buttons unresponsive after being idle

Have you check device manager - properties - power management tab and allow the device to wake up this computer? Try reinstalling or look for the latest driver on Dell support site for the graphics chipset. Try removing currently used wallpaper and run a diagnostic test utility to check on your hard drive. You could also remove the recently RAM module to check on the difference.

I'm running XP Professional with latest security updates. I'm also left handed, so it has always been my practice to swap the mouse buttons.. A few days ago I found that when I reboot or power on the computer after previously powering down, the o/s has forgotten that the mouse buttons are supposed to be swapped.

I'm using the standard Windows mouse driver with a Logitech USB optical mouse but I don't see how it could be a hardware problem.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

A:Swapped mouse buttons forgotten after reboot

You could try this,one of the things it will do is save your mouse settings,a handy app to have.Look under logon>settings and check box mouse.
You can customize much with this.
It's from Microsoft and it's safe.

Hi there About a week ago I got the quot Security Tool quot virus and after following the guide on this site I managed to get rid of it I have since run another Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan run a Home Intruder scan and have installed Avast and done a scan Eventually they stopped finding infections so I assumed I was free Odd virus mouse altering - problem buttons? of viruses But I ve not been able to shake the feeling that something was not quite right For instance I downloaded the Odd problem - virus altering mouse buttons? Rkill renamed Iexplore exe program and I would notice that it would simply disappear or the shortcut to it would become invalid I put this down either to paranoia or a virus trying to stay on my system I ignored my paranoia as I d run so many virus scans and was frankly getting sick of fighting with the computer However today when I turned on my computer I noticed the middle mouse button wouldn Odd problem - virus altering mouse buttons? t open a new tab in Chrome as it would normally do Fair enough I thought Windows must be having a bad day But then I tried to click on another tab with the left mouse button and instead of switching to it it closed it Then I noticed that clicking hard with the LMB would enable the scroll feature you know the one where you have a circle in the centre of the screen with four arrows pointing in each direction which is something the middle mouse button should do And now it occasionally won t let me click on things in my toolbar I can hover over them but it just doesn t respond to me clicking It is temporarily solved by ending and restarting explorer exe but invariably comes back The same with shutting the laptop and logging back in The only consistent thing is that the middle mouse button does not respond to button presses only scrolling This is getting pretty frustrating as I am in the middle of doing an essay and it is sometimes impossible to highlight text and do other simple tasks Is this a virus or simply a hard software fault N B I have tried a different mouse and have used the built-in touchpad and all produce exactly the same results so I doubt it is a hardware fault I am running Vista on a Dell Studio Laptop and like to think of myself as reasonably technologically proficient so I haven t uninstalled the mouse drivers or anything I tried going into Control Panel but the only useful options there were to switch primary and secondary mouse functions I did that and still had the same problem Sorry for the long essay just trying to give as much info as possible though I think I ve given my life story I would be so grateful if anybody could give me so advice guidance - it s a really frustrating problem Cheers Jeremy

Hi, I accidentally spilled tea on my wacom tablet today, and everything seems to work okay for a time, but after about 30 minutes or so, the buttons in Windows Explorer stop working, and the left-click function in the mouse has no effect on them (although the right-click does work). When I reboot, it's the same thing, it works fine for a while and then stops. I can't click anything, I can't close any windows, I can't open anything. Everything basically freezes, although the mouse otherwise works fine (it moves around still), and the clicking appears to register with the tablet. Anyone seen this before? Anyone know how to make it better?

As left hander when I use a desktop I use the right mouse button as my primary button.

When using a laptop it's easier for me to keep the track pad buttons set with the left button as my primary button (it's nearest my dominant thumb!)

This hasn't been a problem until I got a win 8 laptop when it started to synchronize the settings on my latop to desktop and vice versa. This is a good thing in normal circumstances but for me it's a pain as I have to keep changing the setting depending on what machine I'm using.

Is it possible to disable the mouse synchronization whilst retaining the synchronization of other settings?

It's okay, I found the setting in synch settings toward the botttom of the page.

I recently purchased a "kluge" computer system for my wife when her old HP system died. Everything seems to be working well, eccept that this computer has only four USB ports, two in the back and two in the front (actually five - there's a Ethernet cable connection, too). Both the keyboard and the mouse are connected by USB connections as well as the speakers. When I add my wireless adapter card, I've occupied all four USB connections. But, the HP All-in-One Printer/Scanner/Fax/Copier also requires a USB connection!
I tried removing the USB Mouse and driver and replacing it with a Non-USB mouse (plugs into the green jack in the back), but I've had no success.
Is there a way to do this? Or, is there some other way to get around my
shortage of USB connections?

Logitech Performance Mouse MX, extra buttons for previous / next page. Since yesterday evening these buttons are useless, instead of bringing me to next or previous page they both cause browser to jump two pages.

An example: I open Seven Forums home page, click News, click first thread in News. After reading it I press back button which should bring me back to News main page but instead browser jumps two pages back to SF home page. Same action when Forward / Next button is pressed, browser jumps two pages forward.

All browsers, all sites. Logitech Setpoint drivers uninstalled and reinstalled, laptop rebooted. Issue remains.

This is ridiculously annoying.  No matter which open program or site you are trying to work on, when the mouse touches any edge of another window then that one immeditely pops to the front.  This is Windows 8 or 8.1 with the Classic Shell add-on.  Firefox is the default browser, but this also happens when I have only Word and Excel open.  I have read other web sites where people have this same complaint.  Some believe it is a mouse sensitivity issue, but I know that's not the solution in this case.  If this is an issue of "hover delay" then how do you turn that off or adjust it so it does not take over like this?  Thanks

It sounds like you have of the accessibility helpers turned on.
Go to "Control Panel", "Ease of Access", "Change how the Mouse Works"
(or select  "Make the mouse easier to use" if you end up in "Ease of Access Center")
On the "Make the mouse easier to use" page, under "Make it easier to manage windows", you will find a setting "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse". I suspect that that setting has become enabled. Untick it, Select "OK" and you should be back to normal.

Hi there, first off, I'd like to say that I am using a Dell XPS l502x. Yesterday I was cleaning my keyboard and palmrest, and i think some liquid got inside the mouse buttons and the power button, because they malfunction now. The mouse buttons do not work, and the power button only works when I press it sometimes. When I do press the mouse buttons, sometimes the laptop will go to sleep or on standby. I'm thinking of buying a replacement for the palmrest because it contains both the power button and touchpad, as well as the mouse buttons, but I need confirmation so that I don't end up wasting money if it doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?

I have a Toshiba Satellite C875D-S7120 to fix. It has Windows 8. The touchpad and mouse buttons do not respond at all. They quit accepting input without warning. Device Manager and msinfo32 show no errors and Device Manager says the device is working properly. I have tried the Fn + F5 to turn off, then back on, and that has no effect. I tried 2 older drivers. Both installed correctly but did not fix the problem. I have 3 spare scrap Toshiba Satellite laptops, a C655-S5225, a Pro L550-EZ1702, and a C855D-S5305. All 3 have the same Synaptics touchpad, the part numbers match. I swapped in each of them and tested. That still did not solve the problem. Is it maybe a problem with the touchpad connector on the motherboard? The system is otherwise fine and works properly and a USB mouse works.

Hi, i returned a Dell Studio 16 for another Dell Studio 16 with some lighter configurations. One thing I didn't expect to go missing was the ability to "middle click" and open firefox links in new tabs by pressing both mouse buttons simultaneously.

When i went to Dell's website to update the driver, i was informed via a pop-up that the driver i already have was newer than the one i was trying to update with. so i didnt "update" the driver. The device says "Synaptics TouchPad V7.2 on PS/2 Port" and the Driver Version is I am running Win7 64bit. Thanks.

A:Solved: Middle-Click via pressing both mouse buttons not working

i "updated' to the older driver and it worked.

Using Windows XP Home SP3

Among the buttons in my Desktop popup menu (mouse 3) are these:

Save Desktop Icon Layout
Restore Desktop Icon Layout

How can I remove the buttons and the application they run?

A:Desktop mouse right click popup menu - remove buttons?

keepplugging, It looks like you may have installed Icon Restore at one time as it puts those 2 items in the desktop right click context menu. Check out the link below which also has a "Uinstall Icon Restore" tool at the bottom of the page which you can download and run. I'd create a new System Restore Point prior to running it.

Context Menu Editor 1.0 is also Free and may get the job done.

Hello - Sister in law's laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro about years old Was originally running Windows Vista About months ago she Windows respond Mouse (Toshiba, once booted don't and XP) keyboard buttons had someone Mouse buttons and keyboard don't respond once booted (Toshiba, Windows XP) uninstall Windows Vista and install Windows XP instead and it worked fine About month ago she turned on the laptop and the mouse buttons and keyboard were completely unresponsive the touch pad did work meaning cursor can be moved but nothing can be clicked preventing her from taking any action even from running a virus scan I've booted the machine Mouse buttons and keyboard don't respond once booted (Toshiba, Windows XP) up and used F and F to enter the different safe operating modes I was able to boot it up in an error checking mode where it boots up with limited functionality and there the mouse buttons and Mouse buttons and keyboard don't respond once booted (Toshiba, Windows XP) the keyboard worked and I was able to copy all important files to an external drive I read numerous similar problems on this forum and on others but never saw a real solution The only actual solution a came across for the same problem was called a quot hardware reset quot on an Acer where you take out the battery hold the power button down for seconds and then put the battery back in and boot up This worked for a number of people on one thread - I tried it on the Toshiba - no luck I also read a number of times that people with the same problem did a complete reinstall of the OS and that did not fix the problem So I'm hesitant to do a reinstall and I don't have the original OS discs would have to reinstall with a copy So I'm less than hopeful that this problem can be resolved without taking it to a computer repair place but I'm naturally optimistic so there remains a shred of hope Please if you have seen a similar problem with solution let me know Thanks so much Eric

A:Mouse buttons and keyboard don't respond once booted (Toshiba, Windows XP)

Heh it might not be as bad as you think, first thing u need to try is go in safe mode and try computer restore, this will bring the computer back in time depending when the last automatic restore point was done.

Also, if this don't work and ur using xp home with the install cd u could choose repair the installed system without using the system console, this might replace any corrupted drivers, also if u can go to safe mode with networking with mouse and keyboard functionality try updating windows, maybe ur missing sp2 or sp3 which are very important for hardware drivers.

Also if u can access the internet from safe mode go to the manufacturer's website support page and download the drivers for the the keyboard, trackpad or pointing device ans install them, this might also correct the problem. Give it a shot and let me know how did it go.

Hi all:

This is my first post. I'm trying to help my 80 year mother 1000 miles away fix her computer. They have a Dell desktop running Windows XP service pack 2 is installed (I think).

It appears her mouse buttons reversed and I cannot figure out how that happened (as no jokers have access) and even stranger, I walked her through the old Control Panel - Mouse - Button - Button Configuration and we tried to reset the buttons to Left as primary. But it did not work!

Is this a virus problem or something else? Please help me and mom :)

Thanks in advance. kurtk

A:Mouse Buttons Reversed and Won't Change Back to Left as primary

after changing settings did you try restarting pc. if she has internet you can use remote assistance to access her pc and change settings. did you try the mouse in another usb port and changed the settings. finally would recommend system restore that might solve it hopefully.

My 3 year old logitech wireless mouse conked out on me today. No laser light, blinking green on off switch and red battery light stays on. The mouse is part No 810-000769. I have tried all the suggested remedies offered by Logitech support with no success.

The wireless mouse was bundled with their S520 wireless keyboard purchased 3 years ago.

If I purchase another wireless mouse will it work with the Logitech S520 keyboard or will I have to replace that and the receiver dongle too? Are all wireless keyboard and mouse devices interchangeable??

Thanks for your help!

A:wireless mouse conked out must replace with new one...question???

You will probably end up needing 2 recievers the exisiting one for your keyboard and the new one that comes with the mouse.

These tend to auto-pair and are not usually interchangeable.

A:HP wireless keyboard/mouse USB receiver broken. need replace...

It can't be replaced separately. The wireless dongle for a wireless keyboard/mouse set is paired with a dongle at the factory and if it is broken, the set is no more. It is now defunct, broken, kaput. Replace it with a Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard combo. A Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard set will come with its own unifying dongle that actually can be replaced if it is broken.

A:Touchpad buttons open activity center after windows 10 upgrade, how do i reset them to mouse click only?

This may help, open the start menu, and click settings, and then click the “Devices” icon, then on the left column please select “Mouse & touchpad”. Click on the “additional mouse options” link under Related Settings. This will bring up mouse properties, click the buttons tab and then under Click Lock, uncheck the box for “Turn on Clicklock” and see if that helps.

 You may also wish to turn off Tablet Mode, again click the start menu, then settings; you will be able to find Tablet Mode on the left. Turn it off and see if it makes a difference.

 Please let me know if any of this helps out.

Several times now, when I start my computer, everything seems normal. But when I try and click on the start button, a quick launch button or a task bar button - NOTHING HAPPENS. I just get a ping sound from my speakers.
Sometimes a restart fixes the problem and sometimes I have to turn the computer off and then on again to get it to work correctly.

Does anyone know what could be wrong and what I can do to fix it.

Tried to disconnect/reconnect  the 14 pin "touchpad cable from the mainboard, but unfortunately this did not do the trick. Need to look a bit deeper - so would love to see the schematics or at least the pinout of the connector(s)... (It's a button - how hard can it be to fix... ;-)

The dump output from BSOD program and performance monitor data are attached.

The system is:
Lenovo T410
Current OS is Windows 7 and is the one that came with the system.
System is 3 or 4 years old.

The BSODs seem to occur during heavy browser usage. Having multiple tabs opened and switching back and forth between tabs, the browser, and desktop apps. But almost always (if not always), when I am in a browser window.

I did a hardware scan on my computer and it showed me a hardware problem with the memory. The computer have been working fine for many years now. The only thing I did not so long after I got it was to upgrade to 8 GB of memory and an SSD disk. So it have been working great for many years.No it's started turning it self of sometimes while I use it. The scan showed result code: WMEBVVBTH-WL8BRF Also see the log attached. Is the memory starting to go bad or is it the Windows? The computer is upgraded to Windows 10 a few months back.

Hi all, I have a T410 that's from 2010 with the i5 520m cpu. I bought it used recently and I don't think the bios has ever been upgraded. When I follow the regular instructions of entering BIOS --> Config --> CPU, I saw a menu of four choices. The bottom two wereIntel(R) Virtualization Technology [DISABLED]Intel(R) VT-d Feature [DISABLED]I tried to change them, but strangely the menu only let me navigate through the first two choices (I can't recall them exactly now but they didn't seem to have anything to do with virtualization), nothing seemed to allow me to access the bottom two choices...  How should I go about fixing this properly?  I want to be very careful with upgrading/flashing BIOS as I really don't want to end up with a brick Thanks

A:Enabling Intel VT-x in a T410

Look for your BIOS Version and post it(You can find it on the start page of your BIOS)VT-x is supported by your CPU, but maybe there are conflicting settings..Maybe you really have to update the BIOS but that shouldn't be a real problem...Use a disk image, hook your thinkpad to the power and let it be for 20 minutes or so...
