Preferred Solution: Satellite U840T - Mouse disappears right of the screen and bottom

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: Satellite U840T - Mouse disappears right of the screen and bottom

Hi

I?m confused.
Your issue isn?t described very well.

What do you mean exactly by: ?Mouse disappears right of the screen and bottom in black bars at the top??
Do you mean the touchpad or cursor?
The notebook?s touchpad supports the Gesture control feature (Multi Touch) and this feature could be configured in touchpad settings:
+Control panel -> mouse -> Device settings tab -> Settings+

There you can find also the option called ?Edge swipes? which opens the Charms bar, app Switcher, and Application bar just by moving finger from the edge of the touchpad in towards the center.

In such case the cursor would not be visible.

Hi, I have a Satellite U840t-103.

The touch screen stopped working a little while ago.
I just don't know why.

I think I may have been fiddling with the project button, but I still can't make it work again.

Please help.

A:Satellite U840T-103 - touch screen stopped working

Hi

The touch screen does not require any special Toshiba drivers.
The driver is already part of the Windows 8 / 8.1
Therefore I don?t think there is some software problem but of course, I would recommend you to recover the notebook back to factory settings using the Toshiba recovery disk just to check if this procedure would enable the touch screen functionality once again.

This is an first common procedure in case something wrong would happen to the notebook or the system.

But if system recovery doesn?t help, the notebook needs to be checked by authorized service provider for possible hardware malfunction. But let?s hope, the recovery procedure would solve your problem.

Ps: I 'm French so I apologize if I speak little English .

A:Can I add hard drive on Satellite U840T-108?

As I can see in user?s manuals document your machine doesn't have HDD cover on the bottom side so for some upgrade bottom cover should be removed and it should be done by authorized service only.
If you try to do this alone you will lose valid warranty.

In my opinion you should call nearest Toshiba service provider in your country, explain the situation and ask for advice. Valid warranty is very important so don't do something on your own.

By the way I think your machine has empty HDD slot placed near the cooling vent. I?m not 100% sure about that but you can check it with technicians.

A:Satellite U840t-103 - Is it possible to downgrade to Win7?

Hi

I have checked Toshiba download page on http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp and there is no support for Win7.

Generally speaking, Win7 installation should be possible but if you cannot find drivers, tols and utilities there is no sense for me to do this.

By the way: don't forget to create recovery media (DVD or USB).

Hello I have a Satellite U840T-104

For some time now I have a charging problem, I thought it was due to the battery, I changed it and the problem persists. I have also changed the charger that plugged into the power and the problem is the same.
Issue:

With the laptop working (cover open), it charges very slowly, 5% or less per hour. In addition at the time of charging, ie to connect the charger, the "symbol" of the battery in the "notification area" of the "taskbar" has movement, simulates a battery charging "for about 10 seconds, then stops and still It does not stop until it is full.

With the Notebook stopped (open lid), it appears to charge normally, about 20-30% per hour. As is normal with the lid closed, I can not see the battery symbol in the notification area.


Thanks in advance for your contributions.

Hi,

I bought a Toshiba Satellite U840T-102 in March and since a few weeks sometimes the touchscreen go crazy, as if i touch it random but I'm not touching it. If I restart the notebook the problem seems to disappears for a bit of time but then without any reason it begins again. I don't know what kind of problem is it (is a OS problem or a notebbok problem?) and what to do!

Please help me!

A:Touchscreen go crazy on my Satellite U840T-102

There is an simple method to check if it?s system problem.
You could recover the notebook back to factory state using the HDD recovery procedure or Recovery medium.
Then you will get the same state like at the first day of purchase and from my point of few you should test the touchscreen functionality after the notebook has been set to this state.

Hi all:I hope that this is the right board for this problem, even though it may not be primarily a "Touch" issue.  My problem is that I keep losing my pointer/cursor on my HP laptop. Here are my specs and details of the problem based on a set of questions that I found on another thread: What make / model computer? HP Pavilion 15-n216us What operating system? Windows 10 64bit upgraded from Win 8. Does the mouse left alone disappear or are you clicking on something and then it just disappears? It only (and always) happens when I touch the screen. The cursor disappears instantaneously when I touch the screen. It happens whether I have a USB mouse plugged in or not. How do you normally resolve the issue? Except for restarting the laptop, the only way that I can get the cursor back is to go to Personalize/Themes/Mouse Pointer settings. I then have to close the Mouse Pointer settings windows (clicking OK) while shaking the mouse. How is your mouse connected to your computer? Wireless but as stated above, it also happens when the mouse is not plugged in. One screen or two screens? If one, have you ever used two? One screen, never two. More information:1) The cursor is not set to disappear when typing.2) I read that this could be a problem with the Touchpad, so I downloaded the Synaptics Pointing Device driver for my laptop from the HP website.

Hello, I have a Dell laptop 15R 2nd Gen i-5 processor running Windows 7 Home 64bit.

The problem I am having is this: Mouse disappears on right side of screen. The entire right side of screen (not just in the lower corner). If I move the mouse 6 inches to the right off screen, then I would have to move it 6 inches to the left again until it re-appears. If I moved the pointer 1 foot to the right, I would have to move it 1 foot to the left until the pointer re-appeared again.

It's as if the pointer kept going on to a hidden screen??

Lately my pointer is disappearing after i login from sleep or locked computer.

I had this problem in the past but it got solved after i restored my PC, now it came back to haunt me.
I am guessing some updates disrupted with the mouse cursor (not an expert opinion).

I've tried many things but the issue seems to be persistent.

Here are some things I've tried with no results:

Changing the pointer options (hide while you type, pointer trails, ctrl to highlight) and combinations of them.

I tried using different pointers (Black, White, Black small, etc)

Also tried using troubleshooting the software changes, sfc /scannow, clean registry with ccleaner, rebooting (many times).

It seems to be a problem with no concrete solution.

The only solution that I found is (Clt-Alt-Del) it changes the screen and the pointer appears again, if I lock the computer it is gone once more.

If somebody can help i would appreciate it.

thanks

Hi! I'm at the end of my rope trying to solve this issue with the mouse/touch pad on my Toshiba Satellite running Windows 8.1
 
The mouse pointer doesn't work in the center portion of the screen. The mouse pointer doesn't disappear or anything; but if I try to click on something in the affected area nothing happens and I can't complete any tasks. If I'm able to move the item to an area of the screen where the mouse pointer does work (for example, minimizing my browser), then I can open up the item that I was previously unable to work with. This only happens in a section on the center of the screen and it happens with every single program, not just my web browser. So it's clearly an issue with using the mouse in this area of the screen; I just don't know what's causing it and how to resolve things. Oh, and I also can't alternatively use the touch screen to access things in this area of the screen either. It's like there's an entire area blocked off from accessing.
 
The mouse shows as working properly in Device Manager. Ideas on what to do or what could be causing this to happen?

Two options:

*1)* You would remove the HDD from the notebook, and would use an external 2.5? USB to SATA enclosure in order to connect this HDD to another computer. In such case you should be able to get access to the HDD and to rescue the files.

*2)* You would boot the notebook using Live CD like Linux Live CD or an WindowsPE Live CD. Google for that to get more details.

Resolution should be set to the TV's native resolution. Assuming it's a native 1080P screen, that would be (1920x1080). Verify in the User Manual or by looking up the model both the screens native resolution and the supported input resolution. Refresh rate will depend on your region. The US and other NTSC regions use 60hz.

Aside from that, test the TV using a different computer/device on that port.

Hi


We are experiencing problems with Realtek PCIe FE family ethernet NICs on certain models of Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-PSC0RE laptops ( fitted with Core i3 processors and Toshiba PWWAA motherboards). We have various customers with these and they are all hitting the same problem.

After building the laptops using a standard Windws 7 image you can start Device Manager and see the NIC included in the list of discovered and active devices. The network works just as expected.

If you then do a soft reboot the NIC disappears from Device Manager. It's not even listed as an unknown device - it just doesn't appear at all.

If you perform a further soft reboot the NIC magically re-appears and works as normal.
The process is repeatable i.e. the NIC disappears every alternate soft reboot.

If you do a full power cycle i.e. remove battery and switch off the mains supply, then the NIC always appears as normal!

I've seen problems listed elsewhere relating to these particular NICs and sleep mode. So I disabled Windows Power Management from affecting the device. I also checked the BIOS for any NIC related power options, but couldn't find any. The BIOS has been updated, as have the Realtek drivers, PCI drivers etc.

The config summary is:

Toshiba Satellite Pro C660 - sub-model PSC0RE seem to be the only models affected. These are Core i3 based so may have a different motherboard from the other C660 models which work fine.

Dear Friends:

Sometimes for no apparent reason my mouse pointer disappears. It usually happens on the Internet but once I go off it continues off line as well. Itís really weird, you can see the mouse pointer and then as you pass over certain areas on the page it seems to go behind certain things on the page and then come out on the other side of them. An example is when youíre on a site and go to click on a link of some kind as soon as the pointer gets to it, it disappears and if you continue to move it, it come out on the other side. I also notice that if I go to write on a word document, the pointer is only seen on the tool bars and totally disappears on the page. Please help me if you can, it drives me crazy. The only thing I can do is turn off the computer, turn it back on and work until it decides to do it again.

Could this be my video card? which is very sad, if it is why does it work up until that point? Could I disable the 3d acceleration on my computer? is there anything I could do to fix ? or am I out of luck? I really like this game so any help would be appreciated.

A:Solved: Mouse Disappears

Hey Bratt,

Just a guess, but try this... it's harmless.

When that happens, press alt-tab and continue to hold alt. A small prompt should come up in the middle of the screen. Try to refocus on your game by continuing to press tab until your game is selected again. Also, look for a firewall exception prompt, or any new window that might halt the game at this point.

If this makes your game work again, the game developer made a boo boo.

If this does nothing, the application has lost your mouse as an input. Again, this is rarely your fault if your mouse works for everything else.

Try plugging your mouse (assuming USB) directly into the system. If another device is drawing too much power, it can lag the mouse and give garbage to the program.

That's the best I have for now, but better than anyone else was doing..

Hello.I can almost guarantee you that this isn't malware. . . based on your description it sounds to me like severe performance problems.I have been running msse and norton 360 together since msse came outI'd start here. Get rid of either MSE or Norton. I'd recommend losing Norton, but it's up to you.I do not recommend that you have more than one antivirus product installed and running on your computer at a time. The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false positives". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:1) False Positives: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.See if your issue gets better after uninstalling one of the AVs.~Blade

My laptop has suddenly stopped allowing me to click in the bottom tab (I don't know the proper name for this area) but I can't click on the start button, opened tabs, the wifi button to connect to internet etc but it will click anywhere else! Very frystrating and I can't get hold of any HP support in the phone.

I've just received my new PC, complete with Vista home premium.

I've checked the video drivers and they match the newest release on the Nvidia site. (GeForce 8600 GT). I installed City of Heroes, and when I launch it, once it loads, the mouse pointer disappears. The mouse still functions, you just can't see it. It's as if the mouse is operating from beneath the game's images. City of Heroes claims that I may be using old drivers, but I think they have it wrong...

I've tried monkeying around with the mouse settings and the graphics settings. Is there anything I can do here?

Thanks.

I love my Macbook Pro, smooth, simple, quick and high quality.  But when you need a windows machine for work purposes what better than opting for a Lenovo? I bought this Yoga 500 just over a week ago and the mouse pointer keeps disappearing on me, if I don't reboot to get it back, it decisdes eventually to make an appearance, this is annoying enough because while I am ok using a touch screen, I'd rather not for many applications and just use my mouse. Let's not talk about the painful operation of the mouse "buttons" at the bottom of the touch pad, lets instead wonder how the mouse pointer could be so jerky around the screen? Should I now be cursing the day I decided to buy this Lenovo? Is there a fix for these issues and if so when will they come or indeed is there anyone with similar problems that may have already fixed these? Thanks

I've had this problem for about a month now, but here is my problem: Everyone once and a while my mouse moves into the bottoom left corner and starts to left and right click 100 times a sec on its own. Whenever I try to move the mouse, it spases around my screen, left and right clicking and closing anything I have open. Could this be a mouse problem? Or a virus? I've done the Trend Micro Housecall virus scan, and found nothing, same with spybot/adaware/scandisk. Any help? It happens when I'm at the desktop, and in games and I get accused of hacking because I start to violently spin around..

Any help?
