I have tried everything..... uninstalling the driver, updating... all very difficult without a mouse. Had to use the keypad. I am unable to right click without the touchpad and buttons...so cannot unzip the driver I downloaded from PB website.

Have also tried restoring to a previous date.... NOTHING works...
Am I just being thick?
Please help if you can...... somebody?

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.)

Most laptops have a key sequence or a button to enable/disable the touchpad. Have you checked for that? Maybe the FN and F6 or something similar?

For diagnostics and troubleshooting it would be easier if you got your hands on a USB mouse.

Perhaps the answer to this is as simple as "it's frelled," but I thought I'd ask. Everything worked fine yesterday. Today I'm showing a "Code 31" error in the device manager on my Toshiba CDROM XM-6102B. I'm running Win2k, and the hardware troubleshooter is, as usual, no help at all. Supposedly, code 31 means the device depends on another device that is not functioning properly, but as far as I can tell, there is no other device that is not functioniny properly. I have un/reinstalled the drivers, and removed and replaced all the connections. The drive is getting power, as it can open and close, and it does show up in the post screen, and in the device manager in windows, with the yellow "!". I don't have another drive I can swap in to see if that works, but can probably get one in the next few days. Any suggestions in the mean time? Or what to try if another drive shows the same problem?

Thanks

Hi,
I have just switched my home computer on and the cut/paste function apparently stopped working overnight, and I have no idea why. I would also like to point out that: the copy/paste command does work (both when I right-click and select copy and paste, and when I resort to the Ctrl + C/V thing). The OS installed on the aforementioned computer is Windows 7, and I've already tried restarting it a few times, but no such luck. Being able to use the Ctrl + X/V is fundamental to me, seeing as sometimes I'm supposed to cut and paste bordered cells with pictures inside on Excel, and by right-clicking cut and paste there's a very good chance it will just cut and paste the image and not the cell as a whole... besides, it's faster and I wanna be able to use it!
I have just subrscibed, so feel free to move my thread to a more suitable forum section if it does not belong here.
Thanks

Hi folks. At about 4:30 AM this morning, the wireless network adapter (Atheros AR5007EG) in my laptop (a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5932) stopped working and I've no idea why. It pops up in the system tray and says that it isn't detecting any wireless networks, however several other devices I have in my apartment (a Wii, for example) are able to detect half a dozen such networks, including the one broadcasting from the router I normally use (which is about five feet away from the laptop at present.)

The laptop's wireless power switch is on and the LED is lit. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Atheros's drivers from Windows's device manager, to no avail. I've done a system update, nothing. I've run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and it didn't encounter anything. I'm running Spybot S&D right now.

Computer is running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

Yesterday my touchpad was suddenly turned on and I tried to disable it with the settings I always used (configuration screen) However, when i tried to open the control zone for it, it told me it couldn't connect to the driver. I decide to try and reinstall the driver, but it said another driver was already on my computer. I could delete it within the program files on the configuration screen, but there was nothing. So I couldn't deinstall it at all. Its really annoying because I never use my touchpad and my hand keeps brushing over it, so my mouse or text keeps going away.  Please I would like a solution. I can add files to what my screen keeps saying; but it's all in dutch. (Also my smart connect technology keeps flashing a yellow triangle and I have no idea what I have to do against that)

I have a new Acer Aspire 1670 laptop which has worked fine for the past few weeks. However, I turned it on this morning (it worked fine last night) to find that my touchpad no longer works.

I don't feel this is a hardware issue in the sense that the touchpad has become unplugged from the internal PS/2 port, because the touchpad works for about 3-4 seconds after I log onto Windows/when the desktop loads up. That's the only time it works, it doesn't even work at the welcome/logon screen.

After those 3-4 seconds, something obviously happens that's preventing it from working.

I thought it might be my Wacom Graphire II graphics tablet, which is plugged in via USB 2. However, my touchpad and tablet have worked fine together for the past few weeks and have never caused any problems.

I unplugged the tablet, and uninstalled the tablet and touchpad drivers. I then rebooted, and - navigating around with the keyboard - reinstalled the touchpad drivers and rebooted. It still won't work.

Any ideas?
 

A:Synaptics touchpad suddenly stopped working

Two things:

1. Does the touchpad have an indicator light that shows you when it is activated? The one on my HP does.

2. Is there an On/Off button above the touchpad...there is on my HP. Did you accidently turn it OFF

Hello,

I want to thank in advance for any responses I get to this thread.

I have a Gateway laptop model MT6840. It has a Synaptics touchpad. A couple of days ago, the touchpad stopped working completely. I took my laptop out of sleep mode, and the icon for the touchpad in the system tray was simply gone. I checked Control Panel: Mouse: Device Settings for the Synaptic touchpad, but all options are merely grayed out, and the device does not register on the computer anymore.

I believe I have tried almost everything. I first tried rebooting. I then tried disconnecting my external mouse and then rebooting. Then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver from the Gateway website. I looked on Google, but found nothing of use. Alas, none of these things have worked.

This is a bit frustrating because, although I do have an external mouse, it is much more convenient not to have to bring the external mouse around when I transport it. And since I'm a college student, I need to get around with my laptop quite often.

I don't believe it is anything related to the hardware because it stopped working when the software (apparently) magically disappeared. I would really like to solve this problem.

If anyone knows of anything, please let me know. If there is some detail I should mention that would help, please also let me know.

Thanks,
Minus
 

A:Gateway MT6840: Synaptics Touchpad stopped working

Well, I decided to reboot again and go into the BIOS. I did, changing absolutely nothing (even choosing the "discard changes" exit option), logged onto Windows, and the problem was solved.

I have no idea how that worked, but it did.

I can't find a delete thread option, so if an admin is reading this, go ahead and just delete this.

Hi,
 
the Synaptics Pointing Device is not working on my Thinkpad Yoga 12. Suddenly during operation the mouse and the trackpoint stop working.
I tryed to install a new driver and even install Windows 10 again. During the instalation, no mouse was available. An external USB mouse works without problems.
 
If i search for the Synaptics Pointing Device in the device manager of windows, the mouse is displayed with the error code 24: "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed".
 
It is possible, that the mechanism for screen flipping disabled the Pointing device?
Or is it possible to deactivate the Pointing device with a secret key combination?
 
Thanks

The mouse pointer has stopped working with Office 2007 whenever I try to do something with it in the document. I can see the pointer, I can move the pointer, but I cannot highlight words, right or left click anything in the document. The pointer does work when I click on the menu though. I've tried ruinning Office Diagnostics and it reported no problems. I also installed Windows service pack 1 and tried to install Office service pack 3, but it said it was already installed. Office has also stopped working and restarts itself whenever I try to close office and save the files on the task pane to view later.

I was just working happily when my Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse just suddenly stopped working.
The Bluetooth settings page says "Bluetooth is turned off" and there are no options on the settings page or the system tray to turn Bluetooth on.
The Device Manager now has "Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed" where it did not before.
Other devices all seem to be working fine - USB devices plugged in are being recognized and work properly. Only BT seems to be broken.
I've tried:
uninstalling the device and rebooting
installing the latest updated chipset drivers from the dell website
windows updates
pretty much all of the advice here: http ://troubleshooter.xyz/wiki/fix-usb-device-not-recognized-device-descriptor-request-failed

Any other ideas?
Thanks

A:XPS 15 9550 Bluetooth stopped working (Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed)

So in desperation I just went into BIOS settings to see if there are any BT settings that may have become disabled. I didn't see any, and I didn't change any other settings.
After rebooting, BT and my mouse is now working again.
Something seems to be really flaky here, but hopefully this will help others with the same issue.

Hi All

I am desperately trying to save some very old audio cassettes by transferring them to my computer before it is too late.

I am running Windows 8 on a Lenovo G500.I am using a Behringer UFO202 digital audio interface into which I can connect my analog cassette deck and run directly into the laptop.

The Behringer device shows up in Device Manager and Devices & Printers and is stated to be 'working properly'
However, Every time I click on the device in Control Panel>Sound>Recording I always get a 'Windows Shell Common DLL has stopped working' error message when I try to set the unit up to record.

I am not overly computer savvy but I think this message has something to do with the registry or maybe it is to do with the drivers??

Whatever the case, I am loathe to start messing around in case I make matters worse so I am posting here in the hope that some kind soul will help me out before I tear all my hair out and potentially lose some precious recordings that I am desperate to save.

Just for the record, I would ideally like to record the Behringer unit directly into Sony Soundfourge 9 and salvage/restore accordingly.

Thank you in advance for your time.

This evening I went to use by portable USB drive and noticed it wouldn't work. I tried another port and it still didn't work. I then tried another device on the same ports and it also did not work.

I opened up device manager and saw that my VIA USB xHCI controller was no longer listed under USB controllers. I turned on Show Hidden Devices and it then appeared as a hidden device. I attempted to re-install the drivers for it but the installer wouldn't run because it said it didn't detect the hardware on the system.

I last used the ports 2 nights ago and didn't have any problem then. I thought the problem may have been caused by the Windows updates I installed today so I uninstalled them all, but the USB controller still doesn't work.

System Info:

Gigabyte GA990FXA-UD3 motherboard
AMD FX-8350 CPU
16GB RAM
GeForce GTX 770 GPUs
Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit OS

A:VIA USB 3.0 Controller stopped working, now hidden device

Uninstall the device & drivers, and reinstall the drivers from Gigabyte. GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-990FXA-UD3 (rev. 1.0) You will need to click on the Rev. of your motherboard, to get the proper drivers. That info should be Silkscreened on the motherboard, next to the model#.

About 3 weeks ago I burned my last cd it would seem. After that my LG DVD burner just sorta stopped. Windows explorer can still see the drive, but when I put in a DVD/CD nothing shows up in explorer. I can send commands to open the drive though. The device manager reads no errors for the drive, the bios detects the drive as well. What I have done so far;

Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers
Replaced the IDE cables, switched back and forth from pirmary to secondary IDE cables
Removed the DVD drive, installed my old CD drive, same things happen.
Set jumper settings from slave to cable and back to slave.
followed the Microsoft instructions on removing the upper and lower filters in the registry. (didn't work)
Tried reinstalling windows...but the optical drive won't read anything so that doesn't work either.
I'm not even sure what would cause this to happen. The only thing I can think of is that a few days before this started my video card overheated and died. I replaced it with my older card, and continued on with now problems. Any help would be much appreciated as I'm ready to toss this out my 2nd floor window.

Cheers

A:Samba access from Android device stopped working

There is a File sharing app out there for Android devices. When connecting to workgroup shares on an Android OS or iOS device, the OS can block you from doing so, to protect the OS and device.

Windows uses CIFS for sharing, not SAMBA. The version of Samba that Microsoft uses, is a very crippled version and has had issues recently since the last update. Download ES File Explorer from the Google Play store and use that to access your shares. I have never had any issues with it.

Your Alps pointer problem is probably driver related. To fix it:
1. Open Windows Explorer
2. Right click on Computer & choose properties
3. Open Device Manager (Admin password may be required)
4. Under Mice & other pointing devices, right click Alps pointing-device & choose Update driver software
5. Choose Search automatically & it will download and install the latest signed driver from the windows repositories & hopefully that will fix that problem.

Okay. My little brother was on my dad's computer. He was playing a flash game and listening to music on WMP. Suddenly, WMP came up with an error saying the media was corrupt, and the blue screen of death came up. I didn't see what the blue screen's error was, but when the computer reset, it came up with "Boot Device Not Found".
 
We reset the computer manually, letting it sit for a minute unplugged. It booted up slower than normal, but otherwise properly. We then ran chkdsk, it said that the Master File Table's BITMAP was incorrect. We then ran chkdsk /scan as it told us to, and it said there were no errors in the filesystem.
 
Are the errors gone? If not, what should I do to fix them?

Hello everyone, Since monday I have some problems with fingerprint authentication via Windows Hello. It seems to have stopped working for some reasons I don't know. At the beginning, I thought it was a hardware issue but it doesn't seems to be. I'll explain why. Problem description:  When I try to authenticate via fingerprint, OS redirects me to PIN authentication automatically.So I removed my saved fingerprint and tried to set the same fingerprint (and others). But now I can't add a new fingerprint, Windows Hello seems to be inert. My fingerprint device doesn't work.When I removed my PIN and retried to set a fingerprint, my fingerprint device works and detects my finger. Then I've added a new PIN to enable Windows Hello. But neither my PIN nor my fingerprint was saved.  Attempts to fix the problem: - I tried to update driver, I have the last one (5.1.324.26). I tried to uninstall it then reboot, nothing happens;- Via administrative templates, try to enable it on Windows Components, nothing happens;- Reset fingerprint settings into BIOS/ Security then F10, nothing happens;- Tried to recover Windows with keeping files, nothing happens. I've made some snapshots of what I'm explaining : Click on Set up fingerprint. Set with PIN already registered. I just have a cancel button and nothing else.Removed PIN before. Fingerprint device worksAdd New PINBut nothing was saved... I'm totally confused.

Recently bought machine. Windows  10. Camera was working just fine. Been through all the steps the phone support folks are telling me. Now they say do a Factory reset (One-Step Recover).  No guarantee this will work. If not, will have to be without machine for 10 days to repair in Germany - SO frustrating..... Is there no other way? SUCH A PAIN!! Thanks,SBV

Lately my synaptics pointing device has been acting up. I can't use the scroll option and the click is setup to a double touch to select. I go to the control panel to change the settings of the mouse and a message pops up saying "unable to connect to a synaptics point device driver". How do I fix this?

I have a problem with the pointer device on my laptop.e.g. It happens when trying to log in to a site- it doesn't matter which one. Letís suppose that itís an email site - it allows me to input my name and password but then the Enter button on the site appears dead, the pointer does not activate when it hovers. Resizing the window and moving it so that the Enter button is now in a different part of the screen, and now it works.... This is the part that drives me crazy!If I resize and move the reduced window to the bottom right hand corner of the screen - then the pointer becomes active again. I can access the part of the site that I previously couldn't. It takes a long time to do anything, constantly resizing. Sometimes I just give up. The pointer just does not appear to recognise links. Or even allow me to fill in an online form, for example. The problem is the same whether I use the touchpad or the mouse.I had a look at some of the Microsoft forum sites and there was a suggestion that Windows Vista worked better with the pointer selections in the control panel set at 'none' and 'normal'. I've done this but it hasn't made any difference. Iíve also downloaded new drivers for the pointing device. Oh and strangest of all, this is intermittent. I may open up one day To find that everything is normal. And then next time it's as bad as ever. The problem occurs offline as well.Does anyone one have any ideas or suggestions? Any at all ...

Hello. I have a slight issue with the touchpad on my Acer Aspire ES1-512-C39M. After I installed the synaptics driver, it tells me it is a standard ps/2 device, thus not having the capabilities of two finger scroll etc. Bear in mind that on the acer driver site for my laptop there are no drivers for the toucchpad. Heck, there aren't even drivers for W7, only for W8.1. But I got around that workaround using Driverpack Solutions. The laptop works flawlessly, except for the touchpad, that doesn't allows any two finger actions.

Any help would me much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello,
I have a compaq presario v2000 laptop with a synaptics touchpad v5.10 pointing device. I use windows XP pro. I just recently had an new hard drive installed and since I got my computer back from best buy, I have been having problems with the touchpad. It seems my settings are not being saved when I shutdown the computer. Upon booting up the computer I have to go into control panel, click on the mouse setting and manually put in the settings. I do this by clicking on Device Settings then I have to click reset devices.

Also, after I have reset the touchpad settings there is a synaptics icon on the task bar in the right hand corner. When I reboot the computer the Icon is gone. If I go into task bar and start menu properties, and click hide inactive icons then click customize, synaptics pointing device is under current items and set to always show. When I reboot the computer, the icon is no longer under the current items list.

How do I get my computer to save my changes after shuting down the computer. In the past settings were always saved and the synaptics icon was always on the task bar.

Thank you

A:Synaptics Pointing Device

After reinstalling the synaptics driver from the driver recovery disk the synaptics icon appears in the task bar and the settings are saved upon rebooting the computer. The touchpad works as it should in several windows apps and explorer browser. However, the scroll feature does not work in mozilla firefox and opera 8.51 browsers. In mozilla, I get the scroll bar icon by the mouse when I hold down the touchpad but it won't scroll up or down. Any thoughts?
