I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086 and I lost my mouse a few weeks ago. In the program blender I need to hold on to the middle mouse button to rotate the object. I have tryed to hold left-and right-click buttons and that did not work, so I went into the mouse properties and could not find anything that had to do with the middle click functionality.
It would help if someone knew how to fix this or anouther way to rotate the object.
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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i know how to get single click in xp
but i looked for it in vista but cant find,
right click my computer>tools>folder options
I just bought a click mini. I am trying to enter the BIOS.
In the manual and everywhere else I've read, it says to restart or power up pressing FN + F2.
I have tried holding them whilst powering on. I have tried powering on then pressing these. I have tried powering on, holding them for a second then letting them go, exactly as it says in the manual.
Whatever I do, it goes straight passed and into the windows login.
Someone please enlighten me how you're supposed to get into the BIOS.
Hello Every OneI am using HP PROBOOK 450 G2 base model The Lcd was working Fine a Couple of days ago but there used to appear some vertical lines in the middle of the screen it the screen was pressed was the back bottom or front bottom but they used to disappear as soon as the pressure was removed but yesterday evening while i was travelling back home i kept my laptop bad in the top compartment of the bus after arriving home when i checked the laptop a couple of lines were appearing in the middle of LCD some of them have disappeared but a single line is still appearing. plz help me on what should i do
This is a problem with the screen cable or the screen panel itself, likely the latter. Just be sure you should connect to an external monitor and see if the line appears there. Pretty sure it will not. Are you under warranty?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/LIne-in-the-middle-of-laptop-LCD/td-p/5727884

I am a bit stumped at the moment.
My mums asus F3M Laptop developed a problem and kept crashing with a memory error. I replaced the 2x 512 with 2x 1gig and wiped and reset to factory settings. Reinstalled vista and updated bios.
The problem I have found is that I cannot click on anything towards the middle of the screen, if I can drag it to one side I can click but some boxes come up to small to find a bit to drag by and so I end up with an open box in the middle of the screen. Key shortcuts work.
Not really sure what to do next. Am currently downloading graphics driver.
All I have installed is Norton security and office 2007.
dont most laptops come with the drivers/software preinstalled for the "touchpad" thingy? Maybe that got wiped is all i can think off.

I seem to have fixed this one myself. I did a driver update search in device manager and it installed a newer driver and a new version of Nvidia Control Panel.

I dont know whether this post belongs in hardware or software section but here goes...
When I use the laptop, the most I miss is the middle mouse button. The one which makes me open webpages in a new tabs while using firefox in a jiffy. Is there anyway I can get that function in a laptop? Some program which can sense some combination of keystrokes as the middle button Eg: Ctrl+Left button on the touchpad?
(I do have a USB mouse which I do connect to the laptop at home, but at work it is a pain without it.)
I searched a lot for the answer to this problem and at last I figured it out.
You have the middle mouse button and more in your laptop. You must have to unlock all of these features. Go to control panel and then select mouse. Here go to the last option on the left "device settings". Then inside the device settings you will see "settings". Now explore all the options and you will see that you can do so many things with your touchpad including th middle mouse function
i have a lenovo n500 laptop. 3 days back a black horizontal line appeared in the middle of the screen . i tried alot of things to fix it but failed . i downloaded latest drivers but they didnt worked either. guys tell me some thing to fix it as its very annoying.
Hi salmanshah and welcome to Windows 7 Forums
Is it there no matter whether you are running a program or is it just the desktop? Try changing the desktop image to see if it disappears. It is possible that the screen has developed a fault resulting in a whole row of pixels being dead.
I have a Dell Laptop and on Windows 7. How do I activate or find my middle mouth button? I have been into the 'Buttons' tab in the 'Mouse' option in the Control Panel. I cannot access my mouse from the 'Devices and Printers' as it is a laptop.
Hello KTG and welcome to Seven Forums.
I think a lot will depend on your touchpad software. If you have a Synaptics touchpad you could probably create a tap zone on the touchpad itself that will function as a middle click. Or you could use an AutoHotkey script to do a middle click when the left and right touchpad buttons are clicked at the same time. This article gives more info.

BITS is waking my laptop in the middle of the night and my laptop is remaining awake! I don't want to disable it, I have read it's not a good idea. Anyone have a similar problem. My power settings are right, even IF this wakes it.....it should be going to sleep in 15 min, but according to event viewer it's not.
If you haven't already, you might check this to see if it may be a device responsible for waking the laptop.

There's this white vertical band in the middle of my laptop screen V3-574G-77P6. It doesn't appear when I take a "screenshot" so I suppose the white band is on the LCD screen itself.

I wouldn't recommend having you computer sleep at night, as that still drains the battery. Is it possible you have it set to start at a certain time? did you change any advanced standby options? Does it start up from full shut downs?http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/266452-laptop-turns-itself-middle-night-then-freezes-till-dies.html

I know this should be an easy one, but I can't figure it.
I use my HDTV HDMI tv and was having audio issues so i started enabling and disabling devices. When I disabled the Laptop audio, it disappeared from the list of devices (sounds). Now It does not show up and I don't know how to Re-enable it. Device manager doesn't show it and tried rescan hardware. Any ideas?
The only thing I did prior was making the audio on the TV the default, this elimated having to manually switch over every time I used it.
Try right mouse clicking in the body of the sounds window, this wil then give the option to show hidden devices.http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/20962-cant-re-enable-audio-laptop.html

2. i also can't see the BLUETOOTH device in the Device Manager, is that normal?

hi K. Sharath,
From this microsoft article, it looks like the Intel My WiFi technology is not compatible with the Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN card and is only applicable to certain types of Intel Wi-FI adapters.
To turn ON the Wi-Fi capability of the Lenovo Y460, you will need to:
1. Slide the physical wi-fi switch to the ON position
- Link to picture
2. Press Fn+F5 to enable the wireless card (ensure Current Status is set to "ON")
- Link to picture
The Lenovo Energy Management Driver must be installed for the function keys to work
3. If same problem, boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 on startup and ensure that the WLAN Device is Enabled.

Let me know how it goes.

Hi You have a couple of options as I see it please try these steps might help you to fix your issue. 1) Disconnect the Battery & Adapter then press & hold the power button on Notebook for 30 seconds then turn on the unit and check if the Wireless light turns on. 2) Go to Device manager then uninstall the wireless drivers from Network Adapter and restart the unit and check if the light turns on. 3) Try doing a system restore to the date where unit was working fine. 4) Please update the Bios & Wireless driver from HP website. 5) Click start in search type Recovery Manager then click on it select Yes on User access control then select I need immediate help then select Driver & application recovery select the wireless driver and install it then restart the unit. 6) If you are comfortable reseating the wireless card which will be on the back panel off your unit you could try this steps as well. If still you have the same issue then you need to call HP Technical support and get the part replaced.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Wireless-and-Networking/wireless-will-not-enable-on-HP-2000-laptop/td-p/1615339

My laptop says there is a connection, although it won't connect to it, so I think the settings are messed up, but i've tried changing the settings over and over again.

Hello wil, Welcome to Sevenforums!
May I suggest disabling the 'guest account' and just creating a standard limited user account and naming it 'guest'? It will then function as you would like it to.

I was wondering if anyone is familiar with a method to enable sounds for when you plug in or remove a charger connected to your laptop. It is not a problem with my pc, but is an option that is not available for me which i would like to install to let me know if i accidentally unplugged the charger, particularly if I'm working on a full-screen feature. Any help would be appreciated.
I have Windows 7 home Premium 32-bit installed.
In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.
The System Sounds panel can be accessed from Start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sounds. Click on "Change System Sounds".

I'm pretty confused, and I'm hoping someone here can help me. Every time I restart/turn on the computer, the wireless adapter turns on for a couple of seconds then shuts back off.
Then I have to manually press the adapter button for it to turn back on. I reinstalled my Windows and that didnt fix it. The wireless works as it should after I turn it back on.
I checked the power settings, in the properties for the adapter, And i have set it to always be on.
Does anyone know why this might be happening and what I can do to fix it?

Can anyone tell me how to toggle wireless on/off using an external keyboard for the R700 whilst it is on it's docking station?
We only seem to be able to toggle wireless using the built in keyboard (Fn + F8) key.
Also, is there anyway that wireless can be set to off as default at boot up? Is this something that can be done through the BIOS or perhaps by tweaking a registry key?
Grateful for any assistance.
may seem like a silly question, but why can't you simply use the laptops keyboard????? or is it just a niggly type issue that you'd rather use external one?
unfortunatley the R700 doesnt have a hardware switch for the wireless so its purely mapped to the Fn key which is a toshiba function, so an external k/b is unlikely to be able to replicate it
you can always disable the wireless through W7 network and sharing centre -> change adaptor settings, so few clicks with the mouse or even shortcut it to taskbar/start menu for easy access.
Could anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of disabling cache writing on the priming HDD? Thanks in advance
I think the default setting is usually to enable it?
I have a dim understand of it from memory. As I recall, enabling it provides slightly faster performance but has a slight risk of data corruption in cases of a bad shutdown--like from a power outage. It can also have consequences when using RAID.
The geekiest thing to do is to enable it, but use a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to eliminate the risk from power failure.
Me? I've always left it enabled and haven't knowingly suffered any negative consequences.
I've recently installed a wireless lan in my office. I have Roadrunner cable coming into their router which in turn is attached to a Linksys router. I have one desktop (Dell) running XP Pro hardwire to the router. I also have a laptop and another desktop connected via wireless. I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing. So, how do you allow acces from one computer to another. I've set them all up on the same workgroup.....what am I missing? I've been able to send print from the wireless laptop to the printer attached to the wireless desktop. It's just the folders I'm having problems accessing.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Where exactly have "I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing".
If you don't that is fine. But then you can't share files. Just a choice to make.
With a router you should be reasonably protected.

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite. I've only had it for about a year, and it keeps having problems. I am sending it for repairs soon, but I'd like to know if there is anyway I could fix the problems. I have Norton Anti-virus. It has worked for quite a while, but now, it is just unusable.
These problems are:
-on start up, the computer will allow me to log in, but once it gets to the desktop, I cannot load any programs.
-it runs very slowly with everything (right now, I can only open the start menu and such)
I am currently running it in safe mode with a malware search going. I'd like to know if there is anything I can do.
Any help is appreciated. =)
not sure if you need to send it away for repairs ,i will address the overheating and say purchase a can of compressed air and blow out fan and heatsinc for starters ,
then i would post in the am i infected section ,for the other problems sound virus/trojan related,good luck

Fan seems to be working. Tried running battery clear out and re-plugging in cord. Any suggestions I might try? (Yesterday after removing the two Trojans through McAfee, it stayed on for about 2 hours, then shut down. McAfee had said "green board". Today it only lasted 15 min before it shut down.)

You have a few options, but your first has got to be to save your cousin's information/files.
Depending on how technical you are you can download Ubuntu Live CD, write it to a disk and then boot from that CD and transfer your cousin's files to a pendrive or something. (Mobile phone too)
Or, you can take the hard disk out of your cousin's laptop and connect it to another computer using an IDE/SATA to USB cable.
Once you have saved your cousin's files then we can talk about fixing it.
When I switch my laptop on it boots as far as start menu and switches itself off before I can even click the start menu to adjust settings. Is this a virus or a more serious hardware problem
PS. I have tried Safe mode boot up and all other options available through pressing F10 and all result in the same thing. I have also tried to repair windows through boot cd and once again it switches computer off.
I have also tried to repair windows through boot cd and once again it switches computer off.:If this is the case then it leads me to believe that it is a hardware issue. Perhaps overheating due to a defective or inoperative fan, or dust accumilation inside the computer maybe. Or it could be due to defective RAM. If there are two pieces of RAM you could always remove one and see if this issue persists. If it does, swap the pieces and try again. This would identify which piece of RAM is defective, if any. On a laptop RAM is usally accessable from the underside.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/48619/laptop-trouble/

Did you get any software with it, such as a system restore disk? Have you run virus and spyware scans? Can you post more on the configuration and operating system details? Is the wireless built in or could it be that they were using a pcmcia card for wireless that they didn't include with the machine?
If you got a system restore cd, might be good to just run it and have a clean system - getting rid of whatever problems the previous owner bequeathed ya.
I am trying to figure out what is wrong with my laptop. I think it is a virus but dont know how to get rid of it. My virus protector will not delete it or scan for some reason. Also I tried taking off the virus protector and putting another on and it wont let me take it off. The laptop wont defrag or go back to another time. I also took off all my pictures and tried to bring the laptop back to factory settings and cant do that either. Any ideas???? It still works but my internet is very slow and the wi fi for everyone else in the house is very fast.
Well, a "virus protector" (aka anti-virus software) that will not uninstall is usually the "virus" itself. There are a lot of softwares being foisted onto people as anti-virus that are actually malware. What is the name of the "virus protector" ?
Can you run a System Restore? Sometimes this is a way to dodge the bullet for malware removal, which can take some time and requires assistant from an expert.
I set up password on my note book HP omnibook 900, but after reboot, I entered my set up pass, but pass it was incorrect.
I am looking for way How can I clear up the password, please tell me Thanks
when I take out battery, pass always It stays.
Are you on about a User password when you get to the login screen, or a Bios password?
If bios, try goin to your manufacturers website and see if they have got a Backdoor BIOS Password.The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to.
Here are a list of passwords for different Bios:
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords
Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords
One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Award backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords
Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.
Backdoor BIOS Passwords from Other Manufacturers
Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password, this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the real backdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored at F000:EC60.
Or you can try and reset Bios, which will put the password back to default. Do this by either taking the cmos battery out for about 10 mins, or moving the jumper on the motherboard (if it has one) It should say clr_cmos. This is the quicker way which will take about 30 secs.
I have a Satellite M40 from Toshiba and I recently dropped it while trying to pick it up
It fell appox. 6 inches and now when I turn the power on it shows me a BsD with the error "Unmountable Boot Volume". I restarted it and put in the XP CD and did chkdsk /p to try and fix the problem but it says 'One or unrecoverable errors'. Next, I try and to use the recovery CD that came with the laptop but it gets to 75% and shows an error. I don't know what's wrong, maybe my HDD wiped? Someone please help!
1) You shook the hard drive hard enough for the reader head to scratch the physical disk, which probably means that you need a new hard drive.
2) The installation errors may be caused by faulty/unseated or an overheating cpu memory.
Chances are you just scratched the Hard Drive. So you're pretty much screwed if you had anything valuable on that drive.

One day, all of a sudden, the screen on my laptop stopped working.
The thing is though, when I push down the little rubber switch that usually turns the monitor on and off, the monitor flicks on for about half a second then turns off again.
I currently have it hooked to a regular computer monitor...
I was wondering if you knew how/if I could fix this.

Welcome again bassmanuk You?ve got AVG7 Antivirus and Avast4 installed.Not a good idea to have more than one antivirus program installed on your computer. Each program may interpret the actions of the other as viral, therefore giving you false virus warnings about virus-related activities.It could also lead to system slowdowns and other problems within the operating system,due to the two conflicting with each other.You should uninstall one of them as soon as possible via Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs,restart your pc when you?ve done.**********************************Now go to:C:\HijackThis\HijackThis.exeRight click on Hijackthis.exe and select 'Rename', rename it to abc.batDouble click on abc.bat(which is still Hijackthis.exe),post that log into your next reply please.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/88018/trouble-with-my-laptop-too/
My son tried to clean up his laptop and did a disk compression on it and now it will not come back on. He keeps getting the following error code: OCSMY is compressed, hit ctrl/alt/del to reboot. It gives the same code with each reboot. It is a toshiba running Windows 7.
Are you sure that's the exact error message ? I ask because I can't find anything about it with Google.
What OS is on the laptop ? Do you have any disks for it ?

If your trying to copy everything exactly the same as you have it now to another drive I would suggest using Acronis true image. This is a very easy imaging solution and the target drive can indeed be smaller than the original drive as long as the total drive space used is not more than the smaller hard drive.
Hi - I am having a consistent issue with a connection to a laptop on our LAN Background We have an informal peer to peer network shared by people in an office - computers total and networked printers We all are on the same workgroup No one else is having any trouble except me We do not use wireless networking I have desktops and laptop and one Ooma voip device connected to a brand new NetGear GS gigabit switch which is in turn connected to a wall port then into a closet when it goes eventually to a LinkSys DSL router The router then connects to daisy-chained Ooma hubs and laptop one Trouble LAN on pinging the the out to our ISP I do not think the issue Trouble pinging one laptop on the LAN is the Ooma setup or anything in Trouble pinging one laptop on the LAN the closet because no one else is having this trouble My laptop can access the internet although it is slow hangs and drops intermittently and most file downloads fail I think the issue is some sort of network configuration issue on my laptop I have been troubleshooting at the level of pinging since everything else has so many variables The problem my PC and PC can ping each other and can be pinged by each other with no problem My desktops can ping my colleagues PCs and laptops and be pinged by those PCs and laptops with no issue Any computer trying to ping my laptop hits the same issue The first or two pings go through then the next one or two will return a quot request timed out quot and then quot host destination unreachable quot will be returned -- from another IP address For instance I will ping the laptop at from my desktop and eventually get a host unreachable from The replying IP address is not visible from the router s DHCP table - it s a phantom IP when I check the arp cache that IP address shows up assigned to the laptop s MAC address and that same MAC address is assigned to Things I ve tried - I tested with static and dynamic IPs - same issue - I tested with the Windows firewall turned off on the desktop and laptop -same issue - I uninstalled AVG from the laptop - same issue so then I reinstalled it - I have plugged my switch into a different wall socket - same issue - I bought a brand new switch - same problem - I used a different router in the closet swapped out original DLink router for a Linksys router - same problem - I switched all my cables - same problem Also - I used a crossover cable to make sure both NICs were OK and the files copied very quickly between laptop and desktop - I ran a full disk check with SpinRite and found no bad sectors on the drive - The NICs are all set to megabyte Full duplex not Auto - latest NIC driver is installed - the Widows networking troubleshooter showed no problems The laptop is a Dell D gig RAM running Windows XP SP with all MS updates installed The NIC is a Broadcom NetXtreme xx gigabit controller The laptop has tons of software installed because it is my primary development machine including SQL Server several versions of Office NET etc I am dealing with this all at the quot ping quot level but the issue first came up because I was quot suddenly quot having trouble mapping to my laptop drive from my desktop seeing very VERY slow file copies to and from the laptop having difficulty downloading an ftp-ing files onto the laptop etc The laptop is very slow browsing the network and frequently seems to just hang or timeout Strangely enough when I am at home using my wireless connection I have no internet performance issues Any ideas I am not a network expert and we have a very simple setup here - no server to complicate matters I have downloaded Wireshark but do not have a clue how to use it I have been looking at Angry IP scanner so I can see what IP addresses are out there I m happy to try any other free tools out there that might help track down the issue This problem has sucked up weeks of time and has had a serious negative impact on my usual work flow If I cannot fix it I will install a new drive and rebuild the lapto...

My word thats a lot of things tried already. As you mention loads of software/drivers/things are loaded on the laptop?
Assuming the NIC in the laptop is ok could you try the following:
1. Boot the laptop into 'Safe Mode with Networking'. Then test pings/connectivity.
2. Boot up normally but try a Diagnostic....Selective Startup in XP best described by this Microsoft website below. De-select most programs to see if that eliminates the rogue program(s).
START---RUN---MSCONFIG to begin this test.
3. Create/burn a HIRENS BOOT CD via
Then try creating a Mini XP Boot USB. Providing the laptop allows you to change the bios to boot from USB you can load this mini version of XP with Network support on the same laptop without removing the original hardisk and test the NIC works fine without your version of XP SP3 loaded.
4. Try a full scan using all free Spyware checkers on the XP SP3 hardisk. Look at the Security & HJT section of this forum/website for advice on which software to download and scan.
5. Purchase a duplicate hardisk. Probably a 2.5" IDE or SATA hardisk. Replace and try a clean XP install to the new drive. Data(although if corrupted be careful) can be copied from old hardrive via an external 2.5" hardisk caddy. Not that expensive on Amazon, etc,etc.
Let us know if this helps to isolate the issue?
If this problem stays running a mini xp environment then it may be a strange hardware issue with the NIC in the laptop? Bad news if it is part of the motherboard but you can purchase a USB Ethernet Adapter such as the Linksys http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/products/USB300M
Avoid Belkin and D-Link versions of USB Ethernet adapter in my opion!
i know i have two viruses. the cwsbootconf and the svchost32 i took down my ad-ware protection so i could work on editing some pictures. I forgot i turned it off and i went on line.

Big Pain with all the graphics I have on it but I do back up all the time We have three desktops so I have the stuff I put in the restore disks and it woudl hang up everytime I had to try this repeatedly over and over and finally it worked So I started again from scratch and was going to put stuff back on and low and behold it did that exact same thing Freezing up Then I turned it on and it gave me a black screen and said lt windows root gt system hal dll was missing It said reinstall it but there was no going to safe mode or anything Just this black screen So after repeated attempts I reformatted again to see if it did something wrong the first time This time the reformat worked although it took some time to get it to read the disk and start it cause it was only giving me the black screen It did it just fine and I restarted again hoping all the bad stuff was behind me Alas it was on minutes and it hung up freezing again I had to turn it off Sometimes when I hold down the button to turn it on it just makes a little click sound and nothing happens Sometimes it would turn on and of course still mess up within a minute or two Now it will not turn on AT ALL I have tried and tried Sometimes it will be sitting there and I will hear the fan kick on Doesn't that mean it is on But there is absolutely nothing on the screen Not even black Is there anything I can do or is it shot I am so lost without but so tried of messing with it Thanks for reading my novel Mendyhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/toshiba-laptop-trouble-help-7290.html
Don't know if this is the right place for this post. I'm running through a router. Main desktop pc plugged in with ethernet cable. My laptop connects wirelessly. No problems with this as both of these pcs run fast. We have a border who also has a laptop that connects wirelessly. When he gets home from work and starts his up, ours slow down to a crawl sometimes. Is there a way to control this? Our main pc is for work so slow speeds are not good. Thanks,

No doubt he is the farthest away from the router. There are apps that let you limit (or throttle) he bandwidth, which may help with the limited resources.
search google for them
So as english aint my first language ill start off by apologizing for any spelling errors.
To the problem, BEFORE it would disable (removed win 7 allowing to turn it off to save power seems to have fixed it) and i couldnt re enable it.
now instead of disabling it it just says "network cable not connected" and this can happen anything from once a week to 2 times per evning and its not when i boot up but after a while (1-6 hours later)
Model: Dell Inspiron 5150
Geforce Go Fx 5200 card (64mb)
1gb RAM 40GB HDD
Samsung 19" TFT external
OS: Windows XP SP2
I have the strangest problem. Am now on my 2nd TFT in 2 weeks after assuming the 1st one was faulty. Clearly it can't have been. The TFT is hooked up to the VGA out on my 5150 laptop and looks great. However, when the laptop is run off mains power, slightly dull screens have a very annoying "flicker" on them. Strangely, when the laptop runs off battery no flicker is at all apparent and everything looks fantastic.
Does anyone have ANY idea what could be causing this because I am stumped! I have even tried taking the tft and laptop into other rooms to see if its an interference issue from parallell cables but this had no effect.
All advice is gratefully received!!
I've been trying to connect my laptop to my tv in order to watch movies on my tv but i've been having some difficulties. After setting everything up I can get my computer's display to appear on the tv for a split second but then it disappears and the tv's screen turns blue again. My laptop is a Dell Latitude D830 running 32 bit Vista and my tv isn't exactly the newest tv around. The only inputs on my tv are composite rca inputs.

I have had this HP Pavilion zd for around two years now and have experienced only minor problems with it thus far Currently though the keyboard is acting suspicious It does work but it tends to skip random letters when I m typing as if I never hit the key to begin with Granted once I go back and hit the key again it will work Basically the keyboard is forcing my typing speed to about half of what it is supposed to be which is not going to be good once college begins again in the fall lots of papers coming up It s never just one or a few keys that this glitch favors either It is extremely sporadic and seems to be a software issue more than a hardware issue though I might be wrong I ve already adjusted the Keyboard Sensitivity settings in the Control Panel and that hasn t helped Please help I d like to see what I can do to figure out what is wrong before I send it to someone to open up and fiddle around with the hardware If it s a connectivity issue I d rather not mess with it by myself nbsp
If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!
(This took about two minutes to type, actually. Way slow.)
I have a Dell 1100 Inspirion laptop & can't use it, an error states that I have a bad image & winsrv.dll is not valid. It also advised me to check my installation disk. I have Windows XP Home Edition. Can you help me boot my windows so I can try to fix the problem. All I have is a blue screen with the error messages everytime I tried to turn on my laptop. Please help... I have a project due from school next week. Also all my notary and the law office that I work is stored in my laptop.

just trying to bump this back to the top of the list, please help...
I have a DV4 Clevo laptop 4 years old and the battery finally gave up completely. I bought a new battery and the level meter in windows comes up with around 53% charged. Even after some period the battery is simply not charging. I have 20 volts coming from the power supply which appears to work fine. I note that the charging meter on the laptop initially stays orange but after a while turns to green after 12 seconds then back to orange and it just repeats this routine continuously. Any help appreciated
Many times, this is a broken power jack on the laptop, these are very fragile. They can be replaced, but it requires disassembly of the laptop, and someone that has soldering skills and the tools to work on PCB boards.
Note that if this is the case, any further flexing of the cable can result in a short across the supply and destroy the motherboard.
