How to restart touchpad without rebooting computer?

Q: How to restart touchpad without rebooting computer?

Hi
I have an Acer Aspire laptop with touchpad (Elan software). I like to use the tap to click function. About once every few days, the tap to click turns itself off. The first indication I get is often that whole swathes of cells in a spread sheet suddenly select themselves or a tab on Firefox that I've tapped starts moving about with my cursor, as though I'm clicking and dragging. I'm sure it's not the hardware as a computer reboot resolves the problem. When I go into the settings, the tap to click setting is set to on. I have tried turning it off and on but this changes nothing.
I have been told that there's a way to restart the touchpad and reload its drivers without rebooting the computer. Does anyone know how to do this and if it's a simple process I could manage myself. I'm fairly techy but have no programming knowledge?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I just noticed that MSE is frozen - given that the icon says "Scanning" I'm guessing it's been frozen since sometime during last night's daily scan, if not the night before that, etc. etc.

What I then discovered is that I can't kill MSE via the Task Manager - it just says "Access Is Denied". Even running taskkill from an elevated command prompt can't kill it.

That said, how can I restart MSE without restarting my entire computer?

A:Restart MSE without rebooting the whole computer?

It is protected from being killed - for obvious reason.

Restarting the computer is your best solution.

I would...
...restart
...uninstall MSE
...restart
...re-install MSE
But, that is just me.

Hey kinda in a pretty bad situation right now.

about a week or 2 ago I downloaded the windows 8.1 update for my Samsung Series 7 chronos model NP700Z5C-S02UB I never installed the update after I downloaded it though. During the last week I notices the mute led on my keyboad wasn't lighting up and then tonight I realized the Fn brightness controls weren't working si i went to restart my laptop. When I did that I guess Win 8.1 decided to finish its installation after I had forgotten about it and now my laptop starts to boot shows the samsung logo screen for 2-3 seconds then automatically restarts. I can access the BIOS menu but I can't seem to get to the safe mode menu by pressing F8/ Ctrl+F8 or any combination of that. I was trying to do some searching and i'm seeing that I need to download and update some drivers to fix my issue. My laptop has the NVIDIA GT640M graphics card on it

Any help is greatly appreciated. I have too much important stuff on the laptop to go back to my last backup.

How do I restart DLNA server without rebooting the computer? I've set up my Sony Blu-Ray player to connect wirelessly to my LAN. It does this perfectly. All the settings are correct and I can connect to the internet to reach all of Sony's applications.

The problem is with using Windows Media Player's built-in DLNA Server capability. On a fresh reboot, the blu-ray connects perfectly and I am able to stream media from my computer to the blu-ray. However, at some point when I'm not using the blu-ray, its ability to connect to the PC drops. The next time I go to stream my media, the blu-ray tells me the server is starting but it never does.

If I reboot my computer, it works perfectly again. Every time I reboot though, I stand a chance of losing my entire system. I'm constantly having to do start-up repairs on reboots (but that's another problem entirely). There has to be a service or a file that is causing this disconnect that I could restart or reload or unload or something other than a reboot.

It could possibly be my Kaspersky 2014 doing something weird, but I'd think it wouldn't suddenly decide on its own to disconnect the DLNA server connection. The next time I have this problem, I'll pause all protection to see if that helps.

In the meantime, does anyone know what I could reset when I lose the connection?

A:How do I restart DLNA server without rebooting the computer?

Now that I reworked the title, I was able to play with my Kaspersky. If I pause all protection, the blu-ray can connect to the DLNA server. Once I resume protection, the connection is gone again. It's odd that this protection against my own network isn't there after a reboot, but comes in later. Does anyone know what I'd be looking for in my security software that could be getting blocked? I've found no settings that ask for a MAC address or an IP. I must just be looking in the wrong places.

Yes, I can try the Kaspersky forum, but they've never been helpful before and I don't hold much hope for this either.

I have restored my computer to the factory settings.( emachine T6520, Windows XP) It went through all the steps to restore my computer. Once it was done configuring it said : click on restart , I did. Once it shut itself down and started to reboot the Windows XP screen came up saying please wait.... Nothing else happens, it just stays on this screen and never restarts. What do I do? I do not know if this has anything to do with it but when it was configuring it went thru 1/36 screens. Once it was on 30/36 it seemed to repeat itself and then it jumped to 36/36 that when it said to click to restart. I have also tried powering down the computer and restarting. It restarts and stays on the Windows XP screen saying please wait...

I have had this problem since I built this computer 6 months ago. When I restart, i dont think the mobo is restarting, because nothing shows up on the moniter, and there is a beep from the mobo when it starts normally, and when i check system logs, there are no logs during the time of the warm restart, the logs dont start until the time of the cold start. I never fixed it because it wasnt a big deal, i hardly ever restart my computer and if i need to, i simply shut it off, and do a cold start. Another symptom is if i shut the computer down for sometimes 1mn to 15mns, it automatically boots back up, it's really weird. It has nothing to do with the virus trouble I recently had, as i stated, this problem was occuring since I built it. The problem might be drivers, anyone know a good place to find all the drivers i need?

Windows has downloaded some update files 1607 to drive C but when rebooting it doesn't even start the update at all it just reboots as normal with the update options still present in the start menu no errors just no update attempted.

I've ran the update troubleshooter and tried checking for more updates but it doesn't stop searching for them.
Would it be safe to delete the update files on drive C and see if windows re-downloads them again maybe?

I have a pavilion dv9000 notebook running XP and every time I change the pointer speed for the touchpad to its fastest setting it will reset itself to the default setting after I shutdown and reboot. I need the touchpad on its fastest setting because of the wide screen and the fact that I don't always have my wireless mouse w/ me.

The only cause I can think of is having a Logitech wireless mouse installed. The setpoint.exe program for the wireless mouse runs in the background whether or not the mouse is connected. Could this be the problem?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hello,
 
I have purchased a new z50-70 and have had it for a week, part number:59436278. Most of the time the touchpad works very well, but I have found problems when a very small piece of dust finds its way on the touchpad or a very slight moisture is on my fingertips. This is frequently causing the touchpad to not be as responsive as it should be. Frequently, the touchpad won't move properly, just moving slightly when it would normally move all over the screen, I have to either blow air on the touchpad or wipe it with a paper towl or something of that sort to get it to work properly. Sometimes it occurs for no reason also. When the touchpad is working properly the computer is great to use, I am wondering if there is anything I can do, possibly update the BIOS?
 
On an unrelated note, I was using microsoft word earlier in the day and the computer restarted really out of the blue, the screen went black and then the black lenovo screen appeared. I did not to my knowledge do anything to cause this and there was no update pending. I adjusted the position of my computer before hand, is it possible that I may have hit the system restore button? Whatever it was it's very important to me that I prevent this from happeneing again in the future, as I am frequently doing things that I would rather note lose. Any ideas on what happened, or suggestions on how to prevent this in the future?
 
Thank you.

Keyboard works in Bios and at Startup brand screen. Have uninstalled and updated drivers for keyboard and touchpad. Checked Bios, everything is fine in there.
I redid the computer back to out of box settings. Still didn't work. The computer won't shut down properly when I restart. It will go black like it has shut down but I have to press the power button to completely turn it off and then press it again to get it back up. I flashed Bios and check boot order, nothing.
Now that I redid my computer. My updates hang after updating Windows update agent. I have let it check for updates for 27 hours and nothing. I installed IE9. Disabled firewall. Nothing.
The other day power went out and drained my battery until it went off. When starting it back up, keyboard worked again, and so did restart. After several hours, keyboard stopped working. I have taken battery out, and power plug and pressed power button for 30 secs and then replaced battery and turned it on. Still nothing.
So keyboard is not working, touchpad not working, power light is off even though computer is on, volume dial not working, but did after battery drained from loss of power. It's not restarting properly and checking for updates just hangs for over 27 hours now. Many problems all at once, can anyone help me?

I'm working out of a computer repair shop and we've got an L450 that randomly stops receiving any input from the touchpad.  It seems to particularly happen when you try to do anything "complicated" such as move the mouse as press in the trackpad at the same time, or double tap the trackpad to move something. The only way to have it start working again is shutting down and restarting the notebook completely. We've replaced both the trackpad and the motherboard, and it still happens. So it's definitely a software-side issue. It happens on both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, on both the drivers available from the product page and the newer drivers found through having Windows search for driver updates available online. After some research, I'm seeing that Lenovo notebooks seem to be a fairly common problem across many models spanning the last 5 years or so. Anyone got any ideas? The notebook is sadly 1 month out of warranty, so sending it in is no longer an option.

I have to update my Vaio Update software (version 3) to version 4. The instructions on the Sony website say:

1. Download the file to a temporary or download directory (Please note this directory for reference later).
2. Uninstall the existing VAIO Update and restart the unit.
3. After the unit has restarted, please go to the directory where the file was downloaded and double-click EP0000162589.exe.
4. Follow the instructions displayed in the installation wizard.
5. After installation is completed, please restart the computer.

All is clear to me, except that I don't know whether "unit" is another word for "computer", or something different altogether...? If they mean the same thing, then the same word should be used. Anyway, I don't know whether I have to reboot my computer after removing Vaio Update 3 or whether I can install version 4 directly after removing version 3. Sorry if this sounds silly.

Hi,
I have my daughter's computer here, trying to fix it. She's a single mom with not much money so she has no way of taking it in and having it fixed. It started shutting down with a blue screen with a bunch of writing on it that shut down too fast to read. I caught page fault and memory dump. I tried to restore to an earlier date, but it wouldn't do it. I tried a system recovery, and it still did it. I did a full system restore and now after it installs...when it goes to reboot...it goes to the boot options i.e. safe mode, last known good configuration, etc. It does it over and over. Sometimes that blue screen with all the writing will pop up before it reboots. Any suggestions, short of shooting it and burying it, would be much appreciated. She was so excited that her sister gave her the computer and now this!

Thanks,
Molly

A:Full System Recovery Then Rebooting And Rebooting And Rebooting.....

Without being able to see the error message, it's hard to tell. But I'd guess it's one of two things: either the hard drive is too full or a piece of hardware, such as a drive or sound card or something, has failed. If the hard drive is too full and there isn't enough RAM to load Windows into, it tries to swap some data over to the hard drive, but being no room, it simply shuts down and dumps the memory. There are things that can possibly be done for this, but more info is needed. If you have upgraded Windows from an earlier version, and the system is a FAT 32 system, you can get in and delete files with a Windows boot disk, such as from Windows 98. Sometimes, you can start the system with something like Ultimate Boot Disk, which uses a scaled-down Linux operating system, and then use included tools to delete or move files.

If a device has failed, the only way to troubleshoot it is to remove devices. If you get lucky, you can find the bad one.

When you restored Windows, I'm guessing you did an over-the-top reinstall, and didn't lose any data, is that right? Or did you do a complete wipe and restore?

Hello I am fairly new at these type of forum boards and posting information accurately! So please bear with me!!

I am having some problems with my brother's computer, which used to be a emachine
w888 and lucky for us had never had problems with it till the motherboard before it recently was fried!

So my mom and I decided to upgrade his entire computer and the only part that is actually part of the WHOLE emachine is the hard drive put into the new tower.

So we got in the new barebone system and the mobo in it is a K7MNF-64 with an AMD XP Thoruoghbred 2800+ *even though the reciept says different for our motherboard*. Anyways the computer is running Win XP Home SP2 and whatever is on our emachine restore CD.

Well we turned it on and the computer automatically tells us to select the computer to start normally or boot in safemode with or without netowrking. Well any selction we choose after the computer just reboots.

Now I have checked the cables to the power supply, the IDE cables and floppy cables and everything is in tact and everything is running fine.

But just to seem sure of myself I did boot to the DOS prompt from the restore CD and I noticed with that CD I cannot access the C drive and basically says it is not there! The BIOS does pick up our Hard Drive, so maybe was thinking if that was the whole issue was the hard drive??

But was also thinking that maybe an emchaine hard drive was unable to access on a computer other then an emachine!!

A:Upgrade computer keeps rebooting after selecting to start computer normally

You're sort of right on the hard not being able to use the rest of the computer. What's happening is windows is trying to use the old hardware from before the upgrade.

It's kind of an easy fix. You will need a full version of windows xp. Basically, you make like you are going to do a clean install. Windows setup will detect an existing installation and ask if you would like to repair this installation. You do. All your data will remain intact from programs to music. You will have to visit windows update and apply any necessary updates.

I've used Combofix before without ever having a problem(albeit only a few times as I've only ever had to 'disinfect' three other computers) but this time I ran into a problem(I realize I shouldn't have gone straight to Comboxfix for the solution to a problem, hindsight of course being 20/20). It started, found a rootkit, asked to reboot and then it just keeps rebooting.

After using F8 to stop the restarts on error so I could see the BSOD, it says the following :

DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELING_PENDING_OPERATIONS

And gives the following codes :

STOP : 0x000000CE (0xF784CBDE, 0x000000008, 0xF784CBDE, 0x00000000)

kbdclass.sys



Any kind soul on here be able to help me out?

Thanks.

and this happens over and over again its a cycle..


im kind of a noob when it comes to this stuff but if this is important the OS is Windows XP

A:Computer keeps Rebooting

Try your keyboard in another slot if possible and tap F8 as the computer boots, right from the start. It should give you some boot options. Try getting into safe mode from there and running a sys restore.

If that doesn't work, you may just want to reinstall or repair windows by dropping in an XP installer disk and rebooting. Hopefully the BIOS is set to read from a CD/DVD drive before the HDD.

My computer keeps rebooting itself. It will run for hours and then lock up. When you reboot it, it will go into a reboot loop. It reboots itself before the boot process can get windows loaded. I thought that the power supply was bad so I replaced it. Now I don't know what to do.

Hi Everyone
My computer gets to the Windows XP loading screen then automatically reboots everytime. I cannot even enter the OS using safe mode. I have tried reparing and even tried to completely reinstall windows using the windows disk however it will not reformat the partition and therefore closes.

i then get the blue screen saying "a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down... etc.
It lists the technical information saying "STOP: 0x00000050 (0xF77114AB, 0x00000000, 0xF77114AB, 0x00000000) it also lists partmgr.sys.
I should also point out that just as a test i took the harddrvie out and connected it to a working computer. Although i can see the drive, which is listed as G:, i cannot open it as it says i need to reformat it first. However windows begins to format and then says it is unable to continue the format.

So overall the disk doesn't seem to be accesable. Is this a HDD problem? I've only had it for a couple of years. Could it be a virus? Or another Hardware fault?
Thanks in advance

Hello,
I hope someone can help me, I've been having some rebooting problems with my computer. in normal startup the computer will shut itself offany where from 2 to 15 mins andrestarts itself. I use WindowXP. I did a trend micro scan in safe mode, It foundthe usual adware and a Troj_SE69649. it didnt tell methe patway or I don't think it erased it.
plus yesterday this microsft update kept installing itelf over again about 6 times KB898461. I don't know if that did it but it started after that when I was installing a Mircrosoft Office 203 from Kazaa. I scanned it first and it didn't have a virus, but it quit half way through and reboted the computer.
I use AVg free and a Norton fire wall
It also doesn't reboot in safe mode that's why i'm assuming its a virus and not a hardware issue
here is my hijack log
thanks

Over and over again. Please help....

A:Computer keeps rebooting...

On the menu with safe mode that it brings you to, select disable automatic restart on system failure. That way we will be able to read the BSOD message and see if any specific drivers or files are mentioned.

Also, have you installed or updated any new software recently?

I am having problems with a laptop. I updated Spybot from a mirror site (Fast test) and when I went to re-start the computer, it goes through the entire start-up, I get to the desktop, but a McAfee window pops up telling me that Active X control is not updated. (It has been that way for a while, Ive always just closed it). It seems to be stable then, wham, it reboots. I tried a restore point almost a month back with no positive result. I can't figure out, as the only thing that has been done is the update for Spybot.

Spybot does not detect anything. Thanks for any help.

I'm helping a friend get rid of viruses on her computer and now it's worse than when I started!The computer is an HP Pavillion 734n with Windows XP, It has a CD drive (ROM) and a floppy. I'm not sure if SP3 has been applied or not.I found and cleaned Antivir2010, Koobface and TDSS on the computer using Malwarebytes Anti-malware. I was still receiving errors so I edited the registry...I know, dumb idea. I did back it up first though. Now the computer keeps rebooting. It gets all the way to the desktop, stays there for a few seconds, then reboots. During the reboot it doesn't respond to F1, F10 or F8 to boot into safe mode. I've put a bootable disk in the CD drive and it ignores it. Because the computer doesn't have a rewritable drive I couldn't back up to CD, and I didn't want to risk getting her viruses on my computer by backing it up to my USB drive. The main thing I'm concerned about is getting her outlook express data and wordperfect docs off the drive. What can I do to get it to boot and/or get the Outlook Express files off of there?Thanks,Fran

Greetings !

All the problems started with the new graphics card fx 5700, the card was bad and i got a replacement. Triple6 had helped me with the diagnosis.
Now I can't seem to get my second card working (random reboots and driver errors, errors on nvidia drivers

Finally I took out my card and put back the old mx 440 and formatted the drive, did a fresh install of xp and sp 1.
Still I get random reboots. Many a times the computer will reboot before
loadong windows.
I ran memtest all night no errors. Took out my ethernet card still the same problem.

Just a thought , is it possible that the fx5700 had damaged the agp port, is there a way I can check my agp port?
Apart from the 4in1 Via is there any further agp setting for via boards that I can use ?

please give me a solution to this problem I don't want to go buy a new mb.

My config
xp pro
amd 1.8
dfi ad 73 pro
ram 256 x 2
80 gb
gforce mx440
sb live , firewire, tv tuner, ethernet.

I was constantly getting after a reboot that "Your system has recovered from a serious error"...So I figured it was time to reformat my main 250GB hard drive. In the process of trying to install windows I would get errors there too...So I did a quick scan of the hard drive which showed no errors. Then I did a full scan using Data LIfe Guard. Errors showed up and we got an RMA to send the drive off. I figured this was the cause of my problems.

I ordered a new external hard drive to transfer all my data to. Then I took the other 250GB hard drive that my data was on, reformated writing zeros to the drive and reinstalled windows on this drive. Now I am getting Active Desktop Errors. Ok so I turned off the active desktop. Now my computer locks up and reboots on its own. This afternoon it rebooted 3 times, one right after the other, and I didn't do a thing to it.

On the new install I had to put IE 7 . I was wondering if that might be causing some of the problem. Or posibly the motherboard? This motherboard is only 11 months old. The 250GB hard drive that I am using is dated 2005. Could this drive also be going bad?

I'm at a loss as to what to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if you guys can give me feedback or tips on how to resolve my computer problem.

Problem:
*My computer keeps on rebooting over and over again after a blue screen appears. I did some research on this blue screen and some call it the Blue Screen of Death. The blue screen disappears really fast and then the computer reboots, so I am unable to provide the exact wording of all the erros. But from what I saw, I have seen the following kew sentences and words:

sysaudio.sys error
not enough space
memory dump

Theory About the Problem:
*Eerlier that day I was experiencing some issues with playing sound from my computer. I would open a video or open a youtube clip, but no sound would come out. MSN sounds can be heard but no sound from videos. I tried to open the volume controls but I remember an error stating that there was no device mixers. I looked at my device manager and found no errors. So what I did is, I reinstalled the drivers for my sound card, which is the ATO FX something, I apologize for not giving the actual name of the soundcard. Anyways, the sound returned and everything was fine. Until later that day, my computer froze and I could never get back on to my windows screen. All I get is a blue screen followed by the computer rebooting.

What I Have Done:
