Mouse touchpad not working and loss of internet connection

Q: Mouse touchpad not working and loss of internet connection

Hi I was hoping someone here could maybe give me some insight to a problem that has just occured. Earlier today I was using my laptop and there wasn't any problems at all, but I have returned to the laptop now and find that the cursor is not responding to anything I do on the mousepad.

I also noticed that the symbol for internet connection is showing as if it has never been connected, with a red cross through it. I restarted the laptop in safe mode to see if this helped, and the cursor responded to my actions using the mousepad, however when I restarted the computer, this time in its normal state, the same problem reoccured.

Really hoping someone can give me some insight to the problem and a possible solution, first time this has happened

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.)

A: Mouse touchpad not working and loss of internet connection

On my Dell laptop, there is a key-combo that turns the mouse pad on and off.
(Fn + F5)

I can also turn the wireless radio on and off via a switch on the side of the laptop. Some laptops use keys for that, others use software and some have no easy way to turn off the wireless radio.

I got a:

PCI-E Wireless 802.11n 150Mbps Network Interface Card

So It somewhat works but only a 2 MBPS download speed I know that my wireless network gives off 30 MBPS as my old external wireless USB was getting, but that is broke.

With that broke all I have left is the internal card with slow speed, Unable to render youtube in HD.

Windows shows the internal card has a strong connection of full bars but still slow speed.

Tried updating drivers for it through device manager but none available, So why is it so slow?

P.S. There is room for 2 antennas but having the 2 in makes no difference as It still works with 1, strange.

I need your help!!! I got a real challenge for you! I am confused! I cannot locate the Internet connection loss source. Every night for the past 5 late evenings my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit has been losing my Internet connection on my desktop computer anywhere between 8 PM-12 AM (Last 3 nights: 11:05 PM, 8:55 PM, and 10:12 PM). I am on the computer most of the day and evening.

I would be working on something in the evening and when I load a web browser (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox I use.), I get their prospective home pages not to load. I would get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" from Internet Explorer and "Server not found" from Mozilla Firefox. I also notice my e-mail client's e-mail's visuals will not load too at the moment of Internet loss.

Here are some things I have observed that make it hard to identify the issue:

1. My cable ISP states via their tech. support representative according to their system that I have a connection with no issues when I have no connection.
2. My cable modem shows normal signals on the LED at the time of no connection.
3. My wireless router shows normal signals on the LED at the time of no connection. This is completely hardwired home network. I have no wireless connections.
4. The motherboard/back side of tower's Ethernet port's 2 LED lights near the plug are both lit okay at the time of no connection.

Hello Tristan,

Welcome to the forums.

Been a while since I had a laptop, but I seem to remember there being a setting on what to do with the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in. Unfortunately I don't remember where and have no way of finding it.

Have you tried rebooting with the mouse unplugged?

Sorry I can't be of more help. The manual for the laptop ought to have that info in it somewhere.

Hi, I'm writing on the behalf of my brother, who's (desktop) PC is in the room as I write this on my laptop. We usually share our internet connection (I am still using it), but he is no longer able to connect.

In the past, he has gotten a "A network cable has been unplugged" message several times in seemingly random intervals, restarting his PC would usually fix this.

However yesterday he got a message: "This connection has limited or no connectivity" and his game (AlienSwarm at the time (through steam)) stalled out and he decided to restart the PC yet again, only this time after the reboot, he not only wasn't reconnected to the internet, he also couldn't find the Local Area Connection icon(s) in his Network Connections window, the only thing there is a "1394 Connection" which we have no clue about.

I'm gonna add my skype here if any helpful people need more info on this :P Feel free to add jaan.stern

Also I put this in the XP forum, because I wouldn't know which Network support subforum to use!
Thanks!

A:[SOLVED] Loss of internet connection, along with missing icons in Internet Connection

I'm running Win 10. My laptop is a Asus Zenbook UX501VW. I have tried reinstalling multiple drivers, multiple times, to no avail. Oddly, the touch screen still works perfectly fine, and for a while I was able to get gestures working on the touchpad (pretty much just scrolling), but now those don't work again. I have also tried three different mice, none of which worked (Microsoft WirelessMobile Mouse 3500, Kinzu V2, unsure of the model of the third).

This started suddenly about three weeks ago and I've been trying to fix it ever since. Like I said before I've tried reinstalling a bunch of drivers, including the ATK pack and Asus SmartGesture drivers, as well as the Microsoft Wireless drivers, yet nothing seems to work. If anyone has some insight on this issue it would be greatly appreciated, I work with adobe editing programs and the touch screen has been more than frustrating to use on these programs.

You should have softwarte to configure the touchpad, make sure everything is enabled.

Also check device manager and make sure the drivers appear to functioning normal. If everything looks OK try to find a newer version of the drivers for the tocuhpad and update those.

Have you ran windows updates, after installing the drivers?
Have you tried uninstalling the driver then running win updates?

Hello there! My Lenovo Yoga 720 (bought new in April 2018) has developed a frustrating problem of losing internet hookup after 2-3 hours of work. Because I work from home about 10-12 hours/day, this is really problematic.I thought I had modem issues, but everything is fine there. It takes a combination of restarting/rebooting and or completely shutting down for many minutes at a time before it functions again -- and then that's only for an hour or so at a time before it happens again. I have no idea if this is related, but I thought I'd mention it anyway in case...The internal mouse will go awry -- it doesn't matter if I'm working in word, on the internet, in Excel -- doesn't matter. I'll be typing away and suddenly the mouse has either A) highlighted everything on the page or in the field I'm working in and delete it (VERY problematic in sheets or in Excel) and B) start typing somewhere I haven't been typing/working in.Adding an external mouse helped, but that's not always convenient to add -- particularly when I'm at another location and working on my lap -- or not sitting, but I'm on another site.  I'd appreciate any assistance -- thanks!

I support a small business with 6 computers(XP) wired networked to a Cisco router and connected to an ADSL WAN. For over a year now they have experienced an overnight loss of Internet connectivity requiring the router to be rebooted almost every morning. We thought it was a fault router so we replaced this with a good Cisco router, but the problem persisted. We got Cisco involved and they monitored it without finding fault, but they replaced it anyway. We also replaced our ISP but all without avail. I use a combination of pcAnywhere and Logmein to support them over the web. The strange thing is that I am always able to connect to their system, but when the fault is apparent, I can't get web access to their router internally or externally and they can't get Internet or e-mail access. The router is my DHCP server and each PC is DHCP mapped in it. Cisco have looked at all the settings of the router and they say they are good. ANY ideas your experts may have would be great.

Have you triedd setting the connection up anew, using the XP wizard for such?

FWIW: When using a router, the router is referred to as a residential gateway. When setting up the connection anew, that's the option that should be selected.

Hello,

First, as a new member, I would like to thank those of you here for the help you give. Unfortunately, I have encountered a situation which requires me to be more than just a lurker (others seem to have much more knowledge and better opinions than me).

I have a D-Link WBR-2310 router which I have not had any problems with. I ran one desktop and one laptop hardwired and one laptop wireless. The laptop I used that was hardwired was solely used for downloading via torrents and ftp. Recently, it died and I started using my desktop for my downloads. Almost immediately, I started to lose my internet connection while downloading torrents or ftp files. The problem has grown worse as I will now lose connection simply surfing the web using my desktop. The wireless laptop, however, has had no problems. I can lose hardwire connection with my desktop, plug in my wireless laptop via hardwire, and it works perfectly. I have tried different ports with my desktop, put in a new network card, and used a new ethernet cable...all with the same results--loss of connection. I have also connected my desktop directly to my dsl modem and lose connection. I called my isp and verified my settings. I am left with the fact that my desktop computer is the problem.

I have ran diagnostics with AVG 7.5, Ad-Aware, and others looking for trojans or viruses--nothing. I ran HiJackThis and will post the results at the end of this message. Nothing has been downloaded or installed on my desktop in the past ... Read more

My computer has two network adapters connected to two different internet gateways. One is Ethernet and the other is WIFI.

The Ethernet connection is first on the access order list (if you don't know what I'm talking about, see the image attached) and the WIFI is second.

Today, the internet access was lost on the Ethernet connection, however internet access was still available on the WIFI connection. In spite of this, Windows and all other applications were sill trying to use the first connection, instead of switching to the one with internet access!

What I want to know is, why, for example, when only the internet access is lost on one adapter (i.e. the adapter is still connected, (has an IP) but no internet gateway or DNS server address(es) are available), Windows doesn't fallback to the other connection, which has internet access?

In the same sense; why can't Windows 7 divide outgoing connections between all internet-connected adapters, and utilize two separate bandwidths?

Thank you very much!

Hello,

If you'd like to utilize both ethernet and Wi-Fi simultaneously, setting up interface metric might help.

My touchpad stopped working after I had installed a usb mouse (and an IR remote).

I searched numerous forums and tried everything out there with no success, including the following:
tried the function key to turn touchpad on/off (the most obvious source of the problem)
tried reinstalling driver for touchpad from the manufacturer web site
removed the usb mouse and rebooted
went to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Mouse to enable touchpad - touchpad was no longer even listed
There were no problems showing up in the Device Manager

This all became a bit frustrating because I would have to reconnect the usb mouse to do any maneuvering around the system (since the touchpad was not working) to try something else.

I then tried the following: removed the usb mouse, turned off computer (used ctrl/alt/del, then tabbed to the shut down button), turned computer back on. The touchpad still did not work. Without doing anything else, and with the usb mouse still not connected, I then turned the computer back off, then on a second time - and the touchpad became functional. I plugged the usb mouse back in and both worked again at the same time. In the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Mouse - both the touchpad and mouse were now recognized.

Hope this helps out others with the same problem (this seems to be a fairly common problem based on the number of postings around the web)

But after it stopped working, there's no mouse anymore on my device manager.looks like is dead.I already uninstall and install device driver several times, from hp recovery manager and from hp site file both.Looks like is dead or turned off. Is there any hidden switch to turn it on, or any way to enable it?

hi,i had my laptop repaired for overheating and cooling fan issues from a hp service center. since the repair my laptop's touchpad isn't working. after that i formatted the c-drive and installed fresh windows 7 home basic on my 64 bit laptop. i installed synaptics touchpad driver but touchpad isn't showing in device manager. i then connected a usb optical mouse which works fine and then mice & pointing devices is visible in device manager. when i disconnect the mouse, mice & pointing devices disappears from device manager. also in mouse settings there is no tab for touchpad. i also uninstalled the mouse driver and reinstalled synaptics touchpad driver but no use. is it due to hardware problem caused during repair? or is it a driver issue? the touchpad worked fine before repair and i used synaptics touchpad driver earlier. how can i solve this issue?

Hi, I have a strange problem with my inspiron Inspiron 15 (N5050). When I plugged in the AC charger, the touchpad / mouse does not work properly. Sometimes it moves and sometimes not eventhough I have moved and touched the touchpad. When I disconnect the AC charger, the touchpad works perfectly fine. Can anyone give me advise on this? thanks in advance

A:My mouse/touchpad is not working properly while charging

Hi suneel_zee.
Welcome to the Community,
Have you tried different power outlets? Does this happen in different locations(even outside you house/work)?
I would suggest you to release flea power.To release flea power disconnect AC adapter,remove battery,disconnect all external peripherals(USB devices),press and hold power button for 30 seconds.
Reconnect the battery and AC adapter.Check how touchpad responds with AC Adapter connected.
If the issue persists try a different AC adapter(may be borrow from some one who uses same watt Dell AC adapter).
Let me know how it goes.
Thank You
