How to quickly disable touchpad on HP ENVY 15t-j000?  
 
I just got one of the newest Haswell notebook.  With older HP laptop touch pads there is a spot at the upper left corner to disable the touchpad.  With the latest Synaptic touchpad on the new ENVY 15t there is no keyboard or touchpad button to disable the touchpad when you are using a mouse.

Dell Latitude 3440 :: Touchpad Doesn't Work After Switching Users

Jan 1, 2015

latitude 3440

windows 8.1 64 bit

after switching between user accounts, I can move the cursor around on the screen, but I can't click on anything, not left click or right click

after signing out of the problematic user account and signing back in, the pad works normally

I saw a lot of reports on this problem for linux, but none for windows.

this laptop came with ubuntu installed. I personally installed windows 8.1 64 bit, which is supported, and I installed all the latest drivers.

Apple :: MacBook - Configurations

Mar 16, 2009

looking at the configurations of MacBooks offered on Apple's site -- specifically, the aluminum models. The two offered on the linked page differ in terms of processor (2.0 vs 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo) ---- do you think she'd be well-advised to take one over the other?

I'm not sure that the $250 price tag is worth the increase (and yes, I know the default HD goes up to 250 gigs on the 2.4 ghz model, and that model also has the backlit keyboard).

just planning on using the computer for basic computing stuff --- internet, word processing, the occasional presentation that incorporates video clips. She doesn't have any immediate plans to do any video editing or anything else that's super intensive (I assume the basic 2 Gigs of RAM would be sufficient for this as well -- correct?).

Acer :: Travelmate 7530 Keeps Switching Itself

Jan 24, 2009

The main one is the laptop keeps switching itself [going to powersave HD off mode] off, I have acer epower uninstalled and am using Vista power settings, both set to always on.

I have run all updates etc and even updated USB drivers thinking that could be an issue having read it could cause this.

The second is that I am unable to change boot order in the setup bios, it shows boot order, but will allow no changes, which makes no sense at all! So am unable to boot from any CD!

am fed up of leaving PC working only to find task stopped as its gone to sleep mode!

On another note, the specs for the LT are:

# Processor - AMD Athlon X2 QL-60 / 1.9 GHz ( Dual-Core )
# RAM - 2 GB (installed) / 4 GB (max) - DDR2 SDRAM - 667 MHz ( 2 x 1 GB )
# Hard Drive - 250 GB - Serial ATA-150
# Operating System - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
# Screen - 17' TFT 1440 x 900 ( WXGA+ ) - 24-bit (16.7 million colours) - CrystalBrite
# Optical Drive - DVDRW (R DL) / DVD-RAM - integrated
# Graphics - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 - 256 MB
# Bluetooth - Yes
# Notebook Camera - Integrated

Am I right in thinking this could run 64 bit vista ok?

Acer :: Switching To Alternate Monitor Before Login

Nov 26, 2008

The monitor on my ACER laptop is broken. I've got an external LG monitor. However I cant view the login screen (on XP) on the broken monitor in order to login and switch monitors. The Laptop has F5 as the key to switch monitors. But fn+F5 does nothing. How can I make the external monitor my main monitor.

Also does anyone know replacing the laptop monitor is it worth the cost/effort? if so approx how much would that be?

Acer :: 6920G Switching Off After Around 15mins Of Gameplay

May 16, 2010

i havent played games on my laptop in a while and recently decided to start playing games again after upgrading to Windows 7.

I installed the drivers 197.16 for my Nvidia 9500m Gs and started playing Age of Conan.

My laptop seems to be heating up alot and the fan is always on when playing. I have read up alot and have fixed the throttling problem by using Throttlestop. Also i have disabled powermizer through resistry settings. The main problem i have now is after about 15 minutes my laptop just switches off for no reason. I have checked my temps using hw monitor and GPU gets to around 80 degrees which could be the problem?

Sony :: I5 Z: Customized Configurations Outside Of Style, Is Only Signature Collection 1080p, How Often Does Refresh?

Feb 22, 2010

Been having mini wars in my mind pitting HP Envy 15 vs MacBook Pro vs Sony Z. Right now Sony Z's got the edge and my interest, and so these questions:

1. I'm interested in getting the Z with the 512GB SSD. Is ordering this configuration only possible via Sony's site?

At first I thought that to be the case, but then I saw in the several hundred page Sony Z thread, links to Jr.com and Amazon.com where they have the Z on sale in various configurations, but no 512GB SSD .....

Dell :: Why/How Did My Order Ship So Quickly?

Mar 28, 2010

I ordered the system in my sig early morning on 3/24. At the time of the order, it was estimated to ship on 4/2 with an estimated delivery date of 4/9. When I called to check the status the next day (3/25), it stated that the order was processing. When I checked again later that night, it said it was shipped on 4/6. I checked the status again the next morning (3/26), and this time it said it was shipped on 3/28 with an updated estimated delivery date of 3/31. Now today, on the 28th, I got the 'order has shipped' email along with the FedEx tracking number. FedEx's estimated delivery date is 3/30.

Anyone have any idea why or how my order could have shipped so quickly? I never did catch it in the kitting/build/testing/boxing stages...and these stages usually take at least a few days. Could I be receiving a recently returned system that just happened to have the same specs? It seems almost unheard of to receive a new system in less than a week after ordering it...especially when considering that they are built overseas and that I picked standard 7-day shipping. Is there any way I can tell if it is a returned system?

My friends and family somewhat jokingly said maybe it's because of my previous order history. I ordered the SXPS 1645 in late November, but later ended up cancelling the order in December due to the throttling issues it was having at the time. When I cancelled the order, it was already in the build stage for a day or two. Could Dell maybe have noticed my history and "rushed" my order this time?

HP/Compaq :: 12 Cell Battery Draining VERY Quickly

Aug 24, 2009

My year old 12-cell HP extended battery for my dv6870 is draining really fast. In 10 minutes it went from 100% down to 70% and all I am doing is browsing. Is the battery shot or is there anything I can do to save it?

UPDATE: From 100% to 7% in 25 minutes. It used to last 2-3 hours!

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Carbon X1 - Battery Drains Quickly

Jan 24, 2013

Lenovo Carbon X1Bought ~2 months ago (new) at a reseller in the USi5 3rd generation @ 1.7GHz4GB DDR3 (soldered on motherboard)128GB SSD (Samsung), must be SATA III (6GB/s) I guessWindows 8 Pro x64 

Furthermore:
+40GB free space on the hard drive Original charger used, always . Laptop was never 'opened' (ie with screws)device mainly used to text editing, browsing and PhotoshopBackground apps/services: Apple iTunes services, Dropbox, Lenovo mouse/trackpad service and startup utilities like Google Update, Java update, Adobe Reader Speed launch.

I do not shut down my laptop most of the times, I simply put my computer in sleep modus (in other words: I close the lid of the laptop)I do play games on this laptop, but of course I do not expect the battery to last many hours when doing so. The battery drains quickly only in 'normal' situations - gaming, video editing and lots of Photoshop do not count of course.Connected to the internet all the time (no 3G, just WiFi)Bluetooth disabled. 

The laptop is fully charged using the original charger. The power plan is set to Power Saver (image). Brightness is set to around 60% of maximum according to the build in indicator of Windows 8. The apps that are open are Google Chrome ( with 5 tot 15 tabs most of the time), Outlook, Dropbox and one metro apps (weather or the app store).

(full image, click here)
 
As you can read, no heavy usage. The CPU is stable between 5% tot 20% and the RAM is at 40% to 70%.

Lenovo X230 Series ThinkPad :: Battery Drains Quickly In Sleep Mode / Power Management Center Won't Run

Apr 15, 2009

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned. 
 
Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode. 
 
At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops. Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

Dell :: Stop Switching To 3d Clocks

Jul 13, 2007

if it is possible to stop the video card from going into 3d clocks for certain applications. For instance, my skin for my computer uses a lot of transparencies and any simple movement of a window causes the video card to go into 3d clock mode. To me that seems like an unnecessary waste of heat for just everyday simple tasks like surfing the internet etc. I'd still want it to dynamically change to 3d clocks when I run a game or something though.

Apple :: Vista Freezes And I'm Switching To Xp

May 12, 2009

vista crashes , not to mention the bsods, and audio crackling issues and performance drop using it under vistual os. Virtual os was not as snappy as running xp. SO now i say bye bye vista and Hello xp. What are your experiences on xp? Does the machine get as hot as on vista? 65-74c while surfing on the net and listening to music? Does it have the famous audio crackling issues? Is it as buggy and slow as vista? Also what are your gaming temps? Is the fan management working correctly?

Apple :: Switching From Windows To Macbook Pro

Jul 10, 2009

I've been contemplating a Mac, too. I recently bought an HP HDX18t, and I'm trying to decide if I want to keep it or get a Macbook Pro 17). The thing that's holding me back is that for essentially the same price as a Macbook Pro with 4 gb of RAm, I have 8gb RAM, a 160gb Intel SSD plus a 500gb hard drive, 18.4" high def monitor that is in the 16x9 format (I can have two IE windows open with no overlap), a Blu Ray burner, QX9300 Quad processors. I also love the full numeric keypad on the keyboard.

My first 3 computers were Macs (SE, IIsi, and Quadra 840AV), and I switched to PC when Windows 95 came out because I was tired of incompatibilities between my Mac and work and college computers. I was also tired of cool apps for the PC not being available for the Mac. Honestly, Windows has never given me any significant problems. Sure, I've had crashes and performance slowdowns, but I had those on my Macs, too. I've never had a virus on Windows. I've really never regretted switching to Windows...........
