My 100s Chromebook touchpad freezes every few minutes

Q: My 100s Chromebook touchpad freezes every few minutes

I have a Lenovo 100s Chromebook, and on my main user account the touchpad stops working and the mouse dissappears every few minutes. I have to do a force shutdown whenever this happens, and I tried a powerwash on my computer to delete all local files, but it still happened twice more after just a few minutes when I reopened my main google user account. I'm currently using the Guest Account and I have yet to encounter the problem. This problem appeared just a few days ago and has become more and more frequent, now reaching the point where I have to force shutdown and restart so often that I cannot work in my classes. I don't want to have to replace the computer, and I can't figure out a software or hardware solution to this issue. Thanks!

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.

Touchpad on my Ideapad 100s keeps shutting off.  It will work when the computer turns on but then after a while, it stops working.  Pressing F6 works sometimes but not all of the time. It looks like the driver that is loaded is from January 2016, but when I tried to upgrade to the newer driver, it seemed to not be working and was causing both the touchpad and keyboard to stop working.  Got it working again by deleting the driver.  My wife uses this computer for school and it's not convenient to plug in an external mouse.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I use this laptop for blogging and listening to music as well as job hunting, however, it will not register the keyboard or touchpad at all. I called Customer Support and the best answer they could give me was to bring it back to the store I got it from--this was an incompetent answer to the problem. I have tried touching and holding the power button for 15 seconds and when it restarts, the problem is not fixed. None of the keys are working. Period. I have a mouse for a gaming computer, however, I do not have a keyboard to plug in to use. If I could get a response to this, that would be GREAT!!!

Hello My Ideapad 100S has in the last couple of days developed a curious problem. If I try to drag something using the touchpad, after holding down the left button, when I move my finger across the pad the machine behaves as if its receiving multiple double-taps rather than mouse-moves. So, for instance, if you do this on a map it does lots of zoom-ins. Any ideas, anyone?

I just got an IdeaPad 100S 11IBY and the touchpad won't let me scroll down in web pages or documents. If I drag two fingers down or up to scroll like I can on other laptops, nothing happens. Is there a way to turn scrolling on or does the laptop not support it?

A:IdeaPad 100S 11IBY touchpad scrolling?

there is no setting to enable. as of right now, there is no way to get 2 finger scroll. I've been checking frequently to see if there are updated drivers for the trackpad but it's not even certain that this touchpad supports multitouch anyway. It's very disappointing that a new laptop does not have this basic feature, too difficult to use unless you have a mouse. Unfortunately I cannot  return mine so I'm stuck fiddling with scroll bars and arrow keys.

Does the mouse have up/down page scrolling? I bought the laptop for my son but i cannot get the page to scroll up or down regardless whether i use 1/2 fingers?? If it just doesn't have scrolling can someone let me know please.Thanks

A:IdeaPad 100S 11IBY touchpad scrolling?

Even though it doesn't have two -finger scrolling, the 11by Lenovo has page up / page down controls and the up / down arrow keys on the lower right of the keyboard which will scroll the page if you are not inside a typing box. If inside a typing box the up /down arrows scroll within the text. Move the cursor outside the box then click to get the extra features on those keys

Hi, I really hope somebody can help because this is driving me nuts. I've been all over Google and Bing and I can only find solutions for issues that are the exact opposite of the problem I am having. Whenever I disconnect from a power supply, the touchpad and USB mouse stop working. I can get them to work again by 'clicking' but a few seconds later - gone. By plugging the supply back in, it's like the issue never happened... Until I unplug again, of course. Does anybody have any ideas? - it's the Ideapad 100s Thank you in advance

Hello all, I'll try to explain this the best I can... please ask questions if something isn't clear or if you need more info. This problem is driving me batty, and I have no idea how to "cure" it. I've tried everything I can think of.

I'm running Win7/SP1/64, I have 4gb RAM, using an i5 processor. My laptop is an HP Pavilion DV6-3150US. All AV/malware databases are up-to-date (Symantec Endpoint Protection/Malwarebytes) and I scan daily - the system is clean.

Every time I boot the computer, within 10 minutes of boot, Windows will suddenly become non-responsive. This non-responsiveness runs for 1-2 minutes, then everything works great. It doesn't happen again so long as the computer doesn't go into Sleep or is rebooted, and then it happens all over again. That leads me to believe there is something loading up with Windows that is the culprit.

I've flashed the BIOS, am using the latest and greatest version of it (SP50942). I'm up to date on Windows updates. As far as I can tell (using SlimDrivers), all my drivers are up-to-date. I've also allowed HP Advisor to scan weekly and it makes no recommendations that something is out of date.

Using msconfig.exe, it shows the following as allowed startup items:

IDT PC Audio - sstray64.exe
HP Quick Launch - HPMSGSVC.exe
IAStorIcon (Intel) - IAStorIcon.exe
Intel Common User Interface - igfxper.exe
Intel ProSet Wireless - iFrmwrk.exe
Microsoft Intellipoint - ipoint.exe
Soluto - soluto.exe (... Read more

A:Windows freezes up for 1-2 minutes a few minutes after startup

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming process, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.

Hello,

#1 For some reason my touchpad on my HP 15 (2015 model with 8.1, now upgraded to Windows 10 1511) freezes. I hate that when it happens, you cant use it for 20 or 30 seconds or so. I close my lid and open it back up and it works normal, but then after a little bit it starts doing it again. My driver is up to date, I think it maybe Synaptics? If I need to give more info, please say!

#2: When I scroll on my touchpad up words it opens the start menu every so often when I am scrolling a lot, but when I didn't even open or even get near it or press Windows key. What is causing this? I hate it when it does this and screws up my readings then it stops scrolling and focuses more on the start menu then I have to click out of the menu and go back to what ever I was doing.

Thanks!

Hi to everybody. I have read tons of forums about this issue and I tried to do what advised, but I couldn't solve this issu with my PC.
I upgraded my system 1 month ago, but I didn't achieve a stable configuration. New componets are MB, CPU, RAM and SSHD. I have suspects on PSU even nominal power should be ok.

---PC Configuration:

Windows 7 64-bit
Intel Core i7-4770K
Asus Z87-K
KHX2133C11D3K4/16GX Kingston HyperX (4x4GB) Memory
Ati Radeon HD5850
Crucial MX100 2.5" 256GB SATA III Solid State Drive
PSU Modular Power Supply ATX 700W
keyboard logithech usb wireless
mouse advent wireless
---Symptoms:

Immediately after the boot, the graphic card fan starts increasing speed and then the system freezes. If I disable and re-enable the graphic card, fan stops overunning immediately and run normally; the system freezes later, randomly.
After 3-4 hard resets, the system asks me to restore the system. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

After downgrading the graphic drivers, the system appeared stable for some days. But now it started again freezing in a different way: rather than increasing the card's fan speed, the graphic card starts flickering. It stops if I disable and re-enable the graphic card, but it starts again after few minutes and the system freezes.

Freezing mechanism: explorer stops responding, but the mouse pointer is still working. After 20-30 seconds mouse freezes as well. It happens randomly in idle state, using google chrome or ... Read more

A:Windows 7 64 bit freezes after few minutes. Explorer hangs and then freezes.

Unless the new hardware you fitted is almost identical to the old, which I doubt, you should do a clean install of Windows. The main reason is the drivers from the old stuff are still around and are messing things up.

I literally opened the box of my brand new custom HP Envy 17t laptop, went to 2 websites, walked away to find my flash drive, and came back to a touchpad that stopped working. I chatted with someone online who just sent me to a "resolutions" 800 number, and I have been on hold 1 hour 30 minutes. I watched the online video about hard resetting the computer when the touchpad stops working, but surely I wouldn't need to do this with a brand new laptop?!? (all the people with this issue in the support forum had the issue more than four years ago, and I am reluctant to try the hard reset since prior support requests on this issue are so old.)

Hi,

After coming home and being told by my wife that "the PC is not working", I took a look - it was consistently freezing after only a few minutes. So, I logged on in Safe Mode and consecutively ran my various counter virus software (MS Essentials, Malaware Bytes and Spybot), which removed/fixed various issues they detected. This didn't seem to help.

So I Restored to my earliest log. I then ran Windows on Normal Mode and it seems to work OK, but I still sense there may still be viral infection.

I then downloaded "Hijackthis" and ran it, without fixing/deleting any files . I have attached the log - I would be very grateful indeed if you could take a look and let me know if you spot any anomalies?

Thanks very much indeed

Recently, my computer started freezing after about 10 minutes of uptime. I ran Everest and the fans and temps seem fine. I thought maybe something in the registry was messed up as I ran CCleaner recently. I thought I might reinstall XP just to get a clean install in. When I tried to do that, I found out that my USB keyboard and mouse stop working just after POST and before XP starts. So I couldn't hit the space bar to install. I tried it with an old PS/2 keyboard and mouse and that helped. I reinstalled windows and it seemed fine. I went about 90 minutes and no freeze, but just as I was about to close it all down and call it a night, it froze again. I restarted, hoping it was just a fluke, but now, after the XP loading screen, I get a blank screen. I can get in using safe mode, and am using it now. I am going to try and see if it freezes in safe mode while I go to bed.



Any input?

Just about ready to switch to Ubuntu.

Hi everyone, I'm kinda experiencing the same problems as this guy - http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/984871-my-computer-freezes-few-minutes.html

It all started yesterday, while I was browsing the net my computer suddenly froze and got a bluescreen. When it rebooted everything looked fine during startup except that it froze after a few minutes again. During the freeze I can move the mouse, but I can't open any programs, and any programs that already are open stop working. Can't ctrl+alt+delete or do anything else than reboot the computer by pressing the start-button.

I didn't visit any websites that I haven't visited frequently these past weeks so I don't think I've gotten anything from them.

When I start in safe-mode the same thing happens after a few minutes, cant start any new programs, and any programs that already are active stop working.

This is a huge problem since, if this is caused by some malware or virus (could be?) I don't have time to do a system scan before everything freezes.

here's my hijackthis logfile:

A:everything freezes after a few minutes

Update: I disconnected my monitor and rebooted (I'm on a laptop with a monitor connected to it)

It's been running a malware scan for almost 15 minutes now which is much longer than usual. Could the freezing be related to my video-card and the second screen?

(I'm running this scan in safemode with network - can't run scan without internet)

Update2: After 18 minutes the scan froze, and I had to reboot. Very frustrating I fear there's no other option than to backup and re-format. But I'll wait to here if I can get any feedback from here
update 3: Another thing I noticed that's odd is that "Microsoft Windows is no longer responding" or something similar. I've had this laptop for 3 years and I've never had a bluescreen on it before, nor have I experienced that windows stopped responding. Normally it's just a program or explorer.exe that stops responding, which happens now and then, but not windows.
Any thoughts?

Hi
I've been going mad for a few hours now- going round in circles, fruitlessly googling! I have a toshiba equim laptop that i wanted to wipe and start completly again on before giving it to someone. So i put the xp disc in so that it would reinstall and wipe everything (i have done this on another old laptop with total success and no problems so was fairly sure it was ok to do)

It asked me delete/create partitions & format which i did and then it carried on to start installing XP SP1 but everytime it gets to 33 mins remaining it just freezes...I have tried rebooting, disabling everything in the BIOS (not that there was much to chose from...cd drive/hdd/lan) and leaving just the hdd and cd drive running and ensuring it boots from the cd drive...

From google they seem to be hinting at something hardware related but there's nothing attached (no printer/usb stick) unless there's something inside but i daren't open it up... and inf files keep getting mentioned but i dont understand the instructions for deleting them.

Has any got any simple to follow advice? I literally want to scream!

Thanks
Lorna

I have 7 running on a Sony laptop. After 5 to 15 minutes, it freezes. Everything just stops, no blue screen, no response from keyboard or mouse. Ctl, alt del does nothing. Hard Drive light is on. Hard shutdown is the only way to get it off. I have been able to run virus check and found nothing. It won't stay up long enough to do a dish scan or upgrade it to Windows 10. I am a basic end user who can use the standard tools but I am not into the internals of a PC. Any help would be appreciated.

I just got a Geforce 2 MX 400, and when I try playing GTA 3, it freezes after about a minute. When I used my onboard video, an Intel 82810E Graphics controller, everything worked fine, but slow. That's why I got the Video Card. I don't know whether this is because of the Geforce, but I guessed so because everything worked fine with the onboard video.

GTA 3 freezes for no reason at all. I could be in the options, which doesn't take up any performance, power, you know what I mean, and it would freeze.
