my power supply went on/off three times in quick succession, I have a Belkin Power Surge in place. When the power finally settled back on my screen was black and the HDD just kept going " ker click, ker click, etc etc. No beeps or anything else. The computer man could not get anything to show even with new HDD. The old HDD still spins.. while "ker clicking".. All systems have power, the fan, the USB ports, the disc writer reader all are ok. Any secret switches ???

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

thanks Jay.. the computer tech suggested it might be the motherboard after he had tested the HDD and found it completly no good and no matter what he did still nothing worked, So... I purchased a HP 27 Envy Recliner to replace the 27 Omni. Trouble is the Envy has no DVD disc drive.. so.. I have taken the one out of the Omni and put it in a Slim Data to USB kit and that fixed that,The 16gig of ram fitted in place of the installed 4 gig in my laptop, this though made no difference. Looking for uses for the rest of the expensive bits... :-)

Hi.

On startup the screen stays black and occasionaly "no signal" appears. Once loaded, it comes up with normal desktop background. However, it freezes and goes to a black screen every 5 seconds. Or, when i click on something, such as the start icon, it goes black.

Another thing ive noticed before this problem appeared was that, my computer would not connect to wireless internet once i turned on my computer, and i would have to restart my computer, and then it would recognise the wireless internet. Not to sure wether that relates to it?

Also, i remember a blue screen came up during start up when this black screen problem started. Cant remember what it exactly said, something along the lines of, if this is the first time youve seen this blue screen, restart your computer. Or to remove any hardware or software that ive installed recently, but i havent installed anything recently.

Any help would be appreciated. And im sorry if i posted this in the wrong section.

Thankyou :)

Hello. Using vb.net, I've been trying to figure out how to paste the clipboard into the window your mouse pointer is pointed.

If anyone has used unix you are familiar with what i am asking for; just to double right click or middle click and to paste the content of clipboard to the given window.

Can anyone offer any ideas for .net?

I would use double right click, or middle click, or single right click.

Please respond with your ideas~

Hi,
I have a couple of problems with my Thinkpad T500. I hope, I'm in the right section.
When I start Windows, the screen just goes blank after the animated Windows logo when the login-screen should normally be appearing. The hdd light keeps flashing but nothing happens no matter how long I wait.
Furthermore when I start Windows in Safe Mode the left-click isn't working with trackpoint and touchpad. It is however working when I use a usb mouse.
Now before this happened I had installed a freeware (grooveshark downloader) which installed a bunch of adware along with it which I removed with malwarebytes and avast browser clean-up. I noticed that the volume control buttons didn't work correctly (all three were only muting and unmuting instead of in- or decreasing volume).
Also even before all this the on-screen prompots weren't appearing whenever I changed volume or screen brightness.
The last thing I did was install Windows-Update which might have involved Lenovo UltraNav and Display drivers (not entirely sure).
I don't really know what to do now. I'm doing a full malwarebytes-scan in safe mode now - nothing found yet.
What can I do? Thanks

A:W7: Black Screen after Windows Logo and no left-click

Okay, good news: The laptop has switchable graphics and I always have the graphics card disabled because I don't need it and use the integrated Intel. I activated the ATI card in safe mode and now I can start Windows normally. However it won't let me switch graphics anymore so there seems to be something wrong with the integrated Intel which is weird since the CPU is working fine.
Also the sound button issue (all three (un)muting) still exists and left-click with touchpad or ultranav still doesn't work... Any ideas?

Hey everyone,

I bought tree satellite tablets, two are working just fine but one has this 1 pixel wide horizontal line across the whole screen. Most of the time it's black but sometimes it has some colored pixels, depending on the the rest of the screen.

This is how it looks like:

http://i.imgur.com/U5FhZXx.jpg

And here when it's off and I press the power button once to check the battery status:
http://i.imgur.com/311W0UJ.jpg

When I powered the tablet for the first time it wasn't there yet. I did the initial setup, updated the bios to 5.2 and the display driver via toshiba service app. I did some tests with a few games and the browser and then turned the tablet completely off. Few days later as I turned it back on the line was already present when the screen showed the battery status (pressed the power button once).
It doesn't seem that those pixels are dead as they are not always black. Maybe something happened when I updated the bios. Restoring the factory state of the device didn't do any help. I also tried to downgrade bios back to 1.7 but it wouldn't let me saying that the version present is newer.
It could be something with the hardware though. Either the screen is faulty or maybe the connector is not properly snapped in. In order to check for that I would have to open the tablet. Would this avoid the warranty?

The best thing would be to send this one back for replacement but my problem is that those tablets are x-mas presents for 3 k... Read more

Tazzy ? before you take it in to be looked at, I?d suggest running a virus scan with whatever security you?re running. If you aren?t running anything, I?d suggest downloading a new security suite, preferably one that?s recommended by Microsoft - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/antivirus...dows-vista.aspx.See what that comes up with. If things come up clean, I?d suggest maybe you uninstall and reinstall your Internet Explorer 8 and see if that changes things. Here?s the link to the download: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-...er/default.aspx.Try those (in order) and see if anything helps.Cheers,

double clicking on a file that would launch a program hangs for a while then opens the program.

Otherwise performance is normal everything runs fine while using all programs.

Hello, Would someone please be able to help me. I recently got my computer back after being repaired and it was on a small resoultion under the 1000's. I bought a new screen to go with it and just turned it on. I went to display settings and changed resoultion to 1920x1080 and now its just a big blank stretched wallpaper with no icons, task menu/bar or start menu. I also can't click or right click thus I have no way to change this back. I've tried going into normal safe mode and display settings changed it to the smallest, restarted the computer and its doing the exact same thing. I know no fixes and would really appreciate all the help I can get.

I know, it doesn't sound practical, but my Genius tablet doesn't have an option to use the Tablet PC feature, so I want to know if there's a way to "force" Tablet PC (or a third party program that lets me use the "hold the left click to right click" feature of Tablet PC), even if Windows sees my tablet as just a mouse and not a Tablet PC compatible tablet.

Correct. "Folder Options" refers to Windows Explorer. The "folders" within a program, like WLM, are under the control of the program. However I noticed that my version of WLM (2009) behaves the way you want without the "Reading" pane turned on. If I turn it on then a single click shows the email in the reading pane. If I turn it off, it takes a double click to open the email to view it. The reading pane is controlled via the "Layout" Viewing option.

I ran the upgrade to 8.1 but I still have a problem with my cursor wanting to "hover click" on links or browser tabs, as well as being stuck in the down position, when I'm not even pressing on the touchpad left button. I end up selecting an entire region of stuff while moving the cursor across the screen.

I can't figure out what to change or configure in Control Panel, or is it in the Dell Touchpad configuration utility?

In Control Panel/Ease of Access Center/Make Your Mouse Easier To Use I have unchecked "Activate a Window by hovering over it with a mouse." Still happens.

It's driving me mad - never had this problem with Win 7 or any desktop machine.

Anyone? Thank you.

A:Dell Inspriron Hover-Click and Left-Click Gets Stuck

If you go into Mouse in Control Panel, then click Device Settings Tab.. on the right there's a Settings Button. I turned off the ones that say swipe. I also disabled rapid app switching. To do that press Winkey-q click Settings on the top right. Type "swipe" in the box. You should see a box on the left about rapid app switching. Click it and you can then disable it.

This is my first laptop also. The mouse gestures drove me crazy. About all I kept was tap click. Also I bought a $5 optical USB mouse and a $.97 mouse pad. I keep these in my Laptop case. When I have time and room to set up the mouse pad I feel much better about using the machine.

Hello!

My Toshiba Satellite P755-S5265 has not been able to turn on at all. That's because the AC adapter would not be charging the battery nor would it operate the computer.

Whenever I would plug in my adapter, a weird clicking noise would come out from the computer. Also, the AC adapter charging light would blink continuously as well. I

took apart my laptop and discovered that the end my of DC power jack was the source of the clicking. When I mean the end, I don't mean the area where I plug in my adapter, it's the other end that's connected to the motherboard.

Does anybody have any advice on what I should do? Is my laptop dead and done for?

Thank you so much in advance!

Hello all, from a few days until now I have started experiencing what seems to be a recurrent problem in the P50 laptop touchpad drivers. When using the driver 19.3.4.16 for synaptics pointing device, the left button of the touchpad double clicks most of the times (about 70-80% of the time). If I decide to update my drivers to the latest version, 19.3.4.202, then something even worse happens: the left and right buttons are inverted (and I have checked that the box of inverting the buttons in control panel is unclicked). From what I have been reading this has been an issue that has happened before already, but I don't know if Lenovo fixed it, or it has just been unsolved until now. Maybe someone around here can help me with this?

Hello,

I came up to a problem that I cannot solve. Using the Explorer (not IE but the plain explorer to organize folders and files) I cannot change the behaviour of an Active Desktop like in WinXP or others.

I am very used to this procedure: single click = mark an object / doubleclick = execute an object.

Unfortunately, the Explorer just uses the option single click = execute. I remembered the option in XP/Vista, that you can go to Extras -> folder options -> Select Elements and tick a radio button for the Active Desktop method or the classic method (execute via doubleclick). Just as described in the tutorial "Single-Click or Double-Click to Open an Item" within this forum.

I tried this, and now I'm getting nuts: The radio button is already put on the classic mode (execute by doubleclick, select by single click). The other option is grey, i.e. it cannot be selected.

I guess, there's some tick wrong in the registry or else, but I cannot find out which. Does anyone has an idea what can be done?

A:folder options / single-click or double-click

The checkbox/radio button option is under the View tab in the same dialog.

Many times when I single click on an item with my mouse, whether it be a program, a shortcut, or whatever, more often than not , it acts as a double click. When I double cliclk, it opens up the program twice more often than mot, also. I have the Folder options set up to double click so I don't know what's going on. I regularly run AdAdware, Spybot, and I have ZoneAlarm Suite running all the time.

Any ideas?

or on your screen.


here's my problem

i have this application that i use and i don't want it to get interrupted because when i move my mouse outside of the app, i use right click alot, in this app, the program gets minimized due to the contextmenu settings appearing, (normally when you click right click on your screen you'll get a pop up screen) That's what i'm talkin' about.

Are there any programs out there, or do you happen to know of any ways that i could make it so that it would Lock this App, and not have any interruptance from this.

i would like to just disable both right click and left click, and not have the app be minimized as this completely messes up my work that i do, in this windowed application.

I sure hope you have an answer for me, thanks.

bye

What I mean is that let's say I am trying to hold and drag a desktop file it will sometimes just click, making me drop the file on the spot. It will also double click when I try to make a single click. I tried to lower the settings for double click timing on the settings menu.

EDIT: Tried out another mouse, it doesn't click out of nowhere but is there a way to fix my old mouse? I can switch the buttons so right click acts as left click so it seems that specific button got practically destroyed

A:Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

Do you mean the other mouse works fine? As far as I know there's no way to fix a mouse other than making sure the trackball or optical lens is clean, whichever your has.

A repair would cost more than a new mouse I suspect. You can get an ordinary one for about $5 or so.

When I right click a file to open the context menu, or when I click a file to open it, there is sometimes (about 50% of the time) a 20-30 second delay in opening the menu or the program to view the file. This does not happen all fo the time, sometimes i does work instantly. The problem does not seem to affect folders at all. I have tested the open file problem with a very small text document. About half of the time, it opens instantly and the other half there is that 30 second delay.

The first thing I tried to do was disabling ALL Non-Microsoft shell extensions using ShellExView. This did not help at all. I then checked "netstat -a" while the problem was occurring. All of the listed connections were either to my local PC or to my ISP. I did try disabling my NIC and while the problem did not go away, the delay was reduced to about 5-8 seconds when it occurred instead of the usual 20-30 seconds. So I searched the registry for other computers/shares I have connected to in the past and removed any references to anything that was no longer available. The problem still persisted. Finally I ran a Windows Repair and yet the problem persists.

Does anyone have any other idea I can try before i blow away the whole partition and reinstall from scratch? I really don't want to do that but this problem is really bugging me.

Do you have any external USB drives attached to the computer? Have you run chkdsk /R on the C: drive? Have you Defragged your computer lately? Have you run a Disk Cleanup with CCleaner?

Hello, I actually have in forder options "Single-click to open an item (point to select).
I really like it because I can open folders with just one click but I don't like (point to select). I like one click to select a file and double clik for open it.
?There is any way that enables one click for opening folders and one click to select files / two for run files?
There is any option at least for disabling the (point to select) option?.
Thanks in advance!

A:Disable auto-click but enable just one click for folder

Welcome!

Not sure what you're asking. How would you select a folder, if clicking on it opened it, and pointing at it did nothing?

If it happens everytime, there is a setting in windows, but if it's only sometimes, it might be time for a new mouse.
