Win 7 recent install, Touch pad won't turn off, Help please

Q: Win 7 recent install, Touch pad won't turn off, Help please

Ladies and Gents,
Brand new here and by the looks of some of the topics, I'm way over my head. This post may be in the wrong part of the forum but, I thought I'd at least start here. I have a HP Laptop that's in the neighborhood of 12-14 months old. It came with Vista Home premium which, worked OK at best. I recently got a chance to pick up Windows 7 Professional for a very reasonable price so, I had a friend install a brand new version of it along with a newer version of Microsoft Office 2010.

Well, here's the problem. The computer has an "on-off" button just above the touch pad. Before the installation of Windows 7 Professional, the button worked just fine in turning the touch pad on and off. Well, now it has absolutely no effect on the touch pad at all. It still changes the colors of the tiny lights, just above the button, from a white, (indicating "on") to orange, (indicating "off") but, zero effect on the operation of the touch pad.

This is quite frustrating because of the cursor movement while typing etc. It throws it all over the place and all of a sudden the page is changed, I'm typing in a different sentence three paragraphs above where I should be typing etc. What a pain. Is there something that changed the effect of the button during the installation of Windows 7?

If so, how could an operation system change, even as big as going from Vista to Windows 7 have an effect on MANUAL BUTTON above the touch pad. In my opinion, that button should have not been effected by the OS change. A switch is off or it's on!

If this post is in the wrong place, please inform me so that I may place it in the appropriate part of the forum, thanks for taking a look at my problem.

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.)

Hi Upgraded my V11Touch to W.10 several months ago all has been fine.  Windows did an automatic update last week which has rendered my laptop useless.  I have a black screen which then goes to Acer Explore Beyond Limits screen after 10 mins I get a blue screen with recovery on it and a couple of options press F8 start up which does nothing and then turns machine off.  It also says press esc for UEFI firmware settings.   Did all the usual things with Microsoft eg turning on/off continually pressing F8.  Tried F10 for reset but no joy there. Microsoft are unable to do anything by remote as I cannot get the start up menu. I would add that on the same day my mother also had the same problem with her Aspire E15 but was luckier than me in that they managed to get hers up and running. As this machine is 15 months old Acer are not concerned unless I return to them at a considerable cost for repair.  Is there anything I can do or do I have no option but to resort to a costly repair.   Feeling peeved as it wasnt my fault.   Surely we are not the only two user to experience this problem. Thanks to anyone that can assist but I am no computer whizz.

Don't know how I missed your message. Sorry it has taken so long for a reply..... About your machine, I am not sure if you have taken it in for local Repairs or if you were able to get it figured out... However there are a few things you can do!!!

If you want you could Try and do a System Recovery.. Problem up front is without being able to log into Windows, Or having made a Windows 10 Recovery it will put your system back to what software you were running..... ie. Windows 8 or 8.1... Press the Power Button on your computer, Then Press Alt+F10. I do it from the time I press the Power button until I see that it is going to start the recovery. Some people get lucky and just press them 2 buttons and let go... I like to be safe.. Even then I don't always get it to come up....

I am attempting to clear the recent emojis tab so that it becomes blank, as I need that page to be blank as a 'buffer' for a non-savvy individual. I intend to use a batch file and task scheduler to remove the file storing the data with administrative privileges during startup.

I cannot figure out where TabSvc.dll(run by svchost) store the recent emoji data, tried restoring the .dll files from the install image to no avail. Restarting TabletInputService does not seem to clear the recent emoji list either.
Could it be stored in .ebd files such as systemsf.ebd? Or is it in temp/Appdata folder? It is not very convenient for me to reset the PC at this time.
Thanks in advance.

Hello. I'm new on this site so hi to everyone and I hope you can help. I've seen a few posts along these lines but not exactly the same so -

Got a new PC from Evesham a couple of weeks ago - Core Duo E6400 / 2GB RAM . Worked fine but was supposed to have 2 x 200GB HD but only one fitted.
Evesham sent engineer with new drive on Tuesday.
But he couldn't physically installl the drive as intended as he wasn't given a bracket (the front panel USB cables inhibit installing it horizontally in the cage below fitted HD).
It was agreed that he would set the disk up on the system and arrange for the bracket and fixings to be sent out for me to fit myself.
Meanwhile the drive sits on the worksurface at the side of the case ( side panel is removed - who mentioned EMC ? ).
Engineer left disk to format - which it did . No apparent problem and PC used as normal.

But later I needed to Restart the PC when I was setting up some audio I/O.
The PC shut down but did not restart.
Testing / Observation since shows that it won't run successfully from Restart or if even I Turn Off then power back on within a short time ( I'm talking a minute or more - plenty of time for PSU to discharge etc.)
It always starts up but will shut off completely after a variable period - sometimes it will get through to showing desktop icons and it appears to be fine but then turns off.
When I say turn off I mean the power just goes off - fans ( case and processor / graphics ) s... Read more

A:PC shuts off after recent turn off / restart

It shouldnt make a difference if the second drive is attached or not, so long as you still have one hdd attached with an os. Theoretically speaking it is unlikely that the drive is causing this problem, with hdd faults you usually find that the drive simply will not be detected, or the pc will freeze / display read-write errors. However I am experiencing similar issues myself and havnt been able to completely rule out the drive as of yet.

As I was using my laptop, a Y50-70 Touch, it turned itself off and now I've been unable to turn it back on at all. When I hit the Power Button it lights up for a second or so, as do the white LED indicator lights on the front of the laptop, but nothing else happens, the keyboard backlights doesn't turn on and there are no other sounds from the laptop, no fans, nothing. It does this with the power cord plugged and the battery in and every other configuration possible, nothing. I'v removed the battery and tried to discharge any additional charge left by holding the power button down for extended periods of time, I've also hit it at least 30 times or more. It doesn't do anything when the battery is put back in. I've tried this multiple times. I've checked every connector and they all seem perfectly fine. Im out of warranty so I can't send it in to be fixed. This laptop has been a disaster, the screen constantly flickers and the hinges are both cracked. I'll never buy another Lenovo.

Hello, and thanks in advance for any help.

I own a Gateway MX6453 running Windows XP. About 2 weeks ago while browsing the Internet, my computer began installing and running what I now know is a "Rogue Antivirus" program. The one on my computer was "AntiVirus 2010." I spent hours scouring forums about this thing, downloading at least 3 different anti-virus and anti-malware programs that were suggested on this and other websites: CCleaner, Malwarebytes anti-malware, and IObit. Only IObit seemed to find anything. After running IObit, the "Antivirus 2010" seemed to be gone, but the redirect virus was still there. I could go to websites without a problem, with the exception of Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Google, oddly, wasn't even Google--it was as though it directed me to a website that looked almost like Google, but it wasn't. Eventually I just couldn't even go to Google or Gmail. As for Yahoo, I could click on their story links or what have you, but if I did a search and clicked on a search result, I would be re-directed to some odd commercial website or the like. Same thing with Bing.

Today I turned my computer on and it was running for about 3 minutes before it just shut off. When I tried to turn it on again, the power light went on for about 2-3 seconds, then just turned off. No beeping or screen activity at all. It's still like that. Tried turning it on without the battery and with the battery without the adaptor, same thing. A... Read more

Machine: Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch
 
Symptoms: pushing the power button turns the computer on for approximately 1 second.  Power button lights, backlit keyboard lights, fan starts up, then after one second, everything turns off.  When plugged in, the battery light is lit.
 
What I've already tried:
* The magic code - unplug adapter, disconnect the battery and press the power button 10 times, then hold it for 60 seconds. Then restart as normal.
* Leaving it plugged in for a day.
* Leaving it unplugged for a month.
* Reseat the RAM
* Replace the RAM with known working stick.
* Removing the RAM completely.
* Reseat the hard drive.
* Replace the hard drive with a HD from another Lenovo laptop.
* Removing the HD completely.
* Reseat the display cable where it connects to MB.
* Hold down enter while hitting the power button
* Tilting the laptop 45 while hitting the power button.
*Praying and offering to never look at porn again if it would just boot.
 
None of these had any effect.  Exact same process every time: powers on for one second, then powers off.
 
I've smelled the MB for any signs of fried components.  Nothing.  Everything looks good on the inside.
 
Possibly related: before this, I was having terrible times with the boot process.  System would take forever to boot, then blue screen, saying there was a problem and the system would reboot for me, then it would reboot as normal and everything would be fine.  ... Read more

Hello Jsfrench,Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Try to see if you have any recovery media, if you are able to install an older OS on the unit, I had something similar happen, but in my case, the unit would not boot after trying to install Win 7 on it, Win 8.1 seemed to have fixed it.
 
Otherwise, by the sound of things you pretty much tried everything, including prayers
 
 If these steps do not work you can call your local Lenovo support line for a potential repair. Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Ok I have this laptop that belonged to my father and I have a problem. Basically I am wanting to turn off the 'tapping' on the touch pad but I just can't.
I have searched online for an answer but nothing I try will work. There are no settings in the control panel, either in the mouse settings or anywhere else that let you turn the tapping off.
Something I read said to press Fn and F9 but that does nothing.
I do remember turning the tapping off once when my dad had the laptop but I can't do it the same way because I installed a fresh copy of Windows and it wasn't from the recovery CD so the software for the touch pad isn't there.
I have tried searching for the software but it appears that this model of laptop doesn't exist!
It is a Toshiba Equium EA60-173 and the model number is PSA67E-00700C8J but I just can't find anything to do with the laptop on the Toshiba website. I did manage to find and try a program called Toshiba Touch and Launch which let me change some aspects of the touch pad but not the blasted tapping.
So if anyone can think of anything else I can try apart from what I have tried already then I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance.

Hi
I've got a z20t-B-107. Lovely machine, upgraded to win 10, all working fine - I had to download a new Wacom driver to get the 'left-click' to work with the pen.

I'm using it in tablet mode to digitise some data points on a map, and to sketch with the pen. However, when I rest my hand on the screen it 'activates' the touch screen and makes things go crazy. I really need to be able to temporarily switch off the touch digitiser and have only the Wacom digitiser running, and if I can toggle it on/off somehow that would be useful. Otherwise i need to use the pen in a very unnatural position to avoid touching the screen with my hand.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note which uses the Wacom type digitiser - it doesn't seem to suffer from this, as soon as it detects the pen near the screen it appear to switch off the touch part.

I would be grateful for any help - I've tried search engines but they only seem to give results about touch pads, and that's completely different...

Many thanks in advance

A:Portege Z20t - can I turn touch screen OFF?

Hi,

I use a Z20t too (but with Win8.1) and have the same problem. I have decided to switch off the touch complete. It is not a good solution, but a good working with OneNote is only with switching off the touch functionality possible.
Maybe this is a possible solution for you.
In Win8.1 I switched off the driver in the device manager.

I found the following steps here:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...d55591d?auth=1

1. Right-click and select "All Apps" at the lower right corner, then select Control Panel
2. Select Hardware and Sound
3. Select Device Manager
4. Select Human Interface Devices
5. From the list, look for the driver for the touch screen. This can be tricky since on my tablet they are all listed as "USB Input Device" and there are 3 of them. I found it by disabling and re-enabling one at a time until the touch screen stopped responding. You can also identify the touch screen by checking the Properties | Details and get the "Hardware Ids" then do a search online to see what the device is. In my case, the touch screen has the ID USB/VID_0EEF&PID_7302.
6. Once you know which is the touch screen, disable the driver and the touch screen should no longer work
Enable this device to make the touch screen work again.

A:How to turn off touch screen on Qosmio DX730?

Hi

Did you find out how to do that?
I think it?s not possible to disable the touch screen.
Did not find any info in user manual?. Maybe you can check the available BIOS settings. Power up the unit and press F2 to access the BIOS.
But to be honest I doubt that an on/off option would be available there.

Hello, I bought my Yoga 260 to use on training courses where I write most of the day on-screen with the active digitizer pen. But, my hand leaves lots of marks on the document becuase the screen thinks when you are resting your hand on it that you want to draw there.  The older tabletPCs didn't have this problem.  I can't use the unit for the intended purpose because of this, i still have to use my old tabletPC. How can I turn off the touch feature, so the screen only recognizes the pen? Thank you

I just bought HP 1000-1b09AU Notebook PC. And I think the touchpad on/off (button?) is not working. I know how to turn on/off the touchpad, it is by doing double tap/touch on the turn on/off area of the touchpad.I don't know why it's not working, since I've already installed the driver of the (Synaptics) touchpad. How do I resolve this? Help me, please.

I'm dealing with the same issue and completely stuck, the troubleshooting guides aren't bad but just not helping me understand what I need to undo or do, so I can get Windows to pop back up.  I understand not having a 24hr tech support, certainly not a free one but a live chat room or assist tool so you can maybe get someone to point you in the right direction would be nice.

I currently own and use a "Y700 Touch-15ISK Laptop (ideapad)" . It is only around 6 months old, and I've run into my first major error. Issue : I closed the screen on my computer overnight, when I re-opened my computer in the morning, I restarted my computer, and now it won't turn back on. Details about the issue : When I try and turn my computer on, the power button lights up and my keyboard lights up for like 5 seconds, but the screen does nothing but stay black. After those 5 seconds, my keyboard doesn't light up anymore, but I still hear the computer fans running.  **PLEASE HELP**

I have Win 8 on a HP Envy.   I already found out about the sudden jumping to prior part of sentence / paragraph issues with the scroll functions of this machine.    With that happiness in mind and no cure to be found I wonder why my machine doe this new trick.  
  I know you can move the screen around like a cell phone, fine and dandy.   What seems to happen is somewhere out of the blue (and ocurring more frequently ) if I try to move it via scrolling in any way other than the right side scroll bar the screen goes larger and smaller.  At the same time if I try to type anything in a search box each key acts as a function instead of a letter.    The only solution is to restart and it goes away for a while.    Could this be an unintended key I am striking or is it yet another problem relating to the scroll function of this computer series / win 8 program?   It hasn't done it since I bought it in Dec 2013 but seems to be happening more and more often.    Thanks .

A:Why does my touch scrolling suddenly resize and keystrokes turn to functions.

It actually does sound like you're striking a key.
I've had the keyboard go whacky as you describe and always found it easier and faster to reboot it, than to figure out which key it is that I keep hitting.
I imagine that the "guilty" key is what is also affecting the scroll too.

For reasons in another thread I today did a W7 repair install. This has left my SSD drive which had 15.6gb free space out of 59.6gb now has only 12gb flat. Question is has this repair doubled up on certain windows files with which I can delete now? Is there a method which can assure removal of only these files and protect the repaired OS?

Cheers in advance for your responses !

hi, windows xp 2002 sp2- auto updates on.

my last update (ms .NET frameworks 1.1 sp1) came up for an update- i believe my computer rebooted itself before the update/install completed & now the update icon keeps showing up in systray..but it will not install. if i click it to install..it will run (green lines moving) but in end will not install. if i click "custom" & choose not to install..the update icon will always re-appear in systray.

how do i fix this- either make it complete the install or permanently skip this install (is it important) but keep autoupdates on??

please help!!
thanks!
