Jan 14, 2009

i am interested to know if the pogo stylus will work on the trackpad of the penryn mbp; also, what is a good software that allow us to draw mindlessly? since i am only drawing some simple graphs for economics classes i am not looking for a wacom intuous/bamboo level of precisions and wanting to use it before making a 300ish purchase of a new HDD for my x41t (233x CF isn't fast enough i guess)

Apple :: Installing Penryn MBP Top Case On Santa Rosa MBP

Jan 28, 2010

i got my santa rosa MBP not too long ago (i bought it second hand). i am extremely happy with the machine as it is a 2.4ghz c2d with 160g hdd at 5400rpm and 8600gt 256mg gpu. i know this has been discussed many times, so i have been reading about the multi touch trackpad and was a bit bummed that i didnt get the newer 2008 penryn model instead. 2 days ago i was thiking about replacing the SR MBP top case with a penryn MBP top case and have the multi touch, 4 finger gesture ability on my SR MBP. therefore i started googling to see of people have actually done conversions and worked..fortunately, i found a member on this forum and confirmed that it actually works...but unfortunately there was not guide for this operation. I would really want to hear from those that has performed such replacement operation and perhaps give me some tips and what i may need to watch out for. in addition to that, does anybody know of a guide for this replacement? would the penryn top case keyboard and trackpad connections fit the SR MBP? any modifications needed?

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: ThinkPad 3698-6CG Stylus / Pen Not Working At All

Jul 14, 2013

I had problems with OneNote win8-appa dn OneNote 2013 long before this happened: sometimes the touch screen function was completely shut dow and unusable but more often the pen/stylus completely stopped working.

I found a workaround for this problem from the forums: installing a wacom driver and using a user-submitted simple batch-file to restart the driver and get rid of the cursor getting stuck in the upper left corner.

Today at school I turned on my Helix, opened OneNote and tried to take notes but the pen did not work and there was no cursor; not even in the top left corner. Next thing I did I uninstalled the wacom driver and tried to reinstall it but all I get is "supported tablet was not found on the system" even though I restarted the system with the pen out of the dock. After that I tried all the current versions one after another and nothing works.

It also seems like there's no other drivers on my system as the pen and touch- properties in control panel yields no information or settings regarding the pen - only touch.

Apple :: Mac Trackpad

Oct 13, 2009

I have a Unibody MacBook (Spring 2008) and i'm having some major difficulties with this trackpad. It seems to have a huge problem "hanging onto" items I want to move. I have simply given up on trying to drag anything to where I want it. Take for example in Mail, I'll try to move a message from one folder to another and i'll click on the message and it randomly release it into different folder. It will only sometimes "pick" up the message and when it does it randomly "drops" the messege where ever the mouse is. This also happens with windows, it'll sometime take me 5-6 tries to move a window from one side of my screen to the other because the trackpad it will simply not grab the window to move it, and when it does it just "drops" the window a few centimeters from where I grabbed it. And highlighting text is completely impossible since it requires some form of precision.

Now this is not user error as what it might seem from the rather large trackpad. I have tried every conceivable option, from moving my hands completely off the computer while I try to do things with my trackpad.

Does this seem like a hardware issue or a software issue, and does this mean I need to get it checked out by an Apple store.

Apple :: Sluggish Trackpad In Snow Leopard

Jan 6, 2010

I installed snow leopard onto an external USB harddrive, just to test it out with my computer (macbook pro, 17-inch, not sure which year it's from, I've had it since 2007)

I ran into a major issue, the trackpad response is extremely sluggish (about a 1-second delay between the movement on the trackpad and the movement on the screen)

Interestingly enough, when I boot snow leopard on my friend's laptop (macbook pro, 15-inch, also from 2007), the trackpad responds just fine.

Apple :: Mac Book Pro 15 - Keepboard/trackpad/handrest Protection

Apr 12, 2009

I just got my Mac Book Pro 15" a couple of days ago & do love it! ( except I'm still adapting from my Dell I've had for so many years. )

& I'd like to protect it from scratches & spills etc.

I've once seen a single one piece of silicone that covered everthing, but I cant find it now.

I'm assuming its not available for the newer models.

I dont know if I'm crazy about the Marware's stuff.
I dont think this one even has the keyboard cover.

Apple :: Randomly / Rarely Jumpy MM (and Once Trackpad) Pointer Motion

Jul 16, 2009

I have recently noted that, sometimes (randomly and rarely for the time being), the pointer of my bluetooth MM (Mighty Mouse) moves farther than what I was expecting it to move. This happened probably in concomitance with the opening of some application (Iphoto once). In other words, it appeared to me that the pointer accelerated more than what I demanded it to move with the displacement of the mouse. It was not really a uncontrolled jump (as it sometimes happens with optical mice) but like a transitory but self-contained loss of pointer control.

I believe that a similar event occurred also once with the trackpad pointer when I went to the bottom of the screen to make dock appear in concomitance with a skype call launch....the pointer seemed to move fast to the right although I am quite sure it was not my finger to command this motion on the pad.

I have tried (with respect to MM) to delete and recreate the bluetooth .plist but it did not prevent from having this occurrence (note also that the batteries are OK).
I have read in some other forum, here in this site, that this might be due to OSX pointer acceleration (not perfect) management.

Dell :: Penryn Now Available On M1730

Feb 15, 2008

Looks like the m1730 now carries 45nm Penryn processors: The base is now 2.4GHz T8300 and T9300 option is for ~$125 more. I wonder if the performance differences justify that extra $125.

Dell :: 45nm Penryn In A M1730

Jan 13, 2008

I was wondering that since the socket for the processor in the M1730 is a socket P and thats the same socket the new Penryns will use, will it be possible to just drop one in like we were able to do so on the E1705 when Merom came out? The run at a much lower voltage and from this review [url] it would increase battery life and is more powerful to boot so it just sounds like a good idea.

Crap, looks like I messed up the topic for this thread.

Dell :: M1530: LED, Penryn, 8800

Feb 10, 2008

In the US, the M1330 already has the LED backlit and the penryn for some time now. Yet the 1530 is just sitting there...

Other manufacturers have began offering newer GPUs than the 8600, but still nothing from dell on their 15.4".

They teased us with the addition of the 1530 under the "XPS Gaming Laptop" header, but its exactly the same as the regular one.

Dell :: M1330 With Penryn Upgrade

Jan 31, 2008

I know some folks have put a T9300 in their m1330, but the screenshots I've seen show the bios incorrectly detecting the CPU speed (A06 I believe). I want to know if the new A07 bios has corrected this issue, but I never saw any followup. Can anyone who has done this upgrade confirm/deny if A07 fixed the detection issue?

Dell :: Penryn Minimum Core Temperature

Jul 13, 2009

It seems like the temperature readings from both cores of my P8400 on my Dell Latitude E6500 running Windows 7 RC have some sort of minimum built into them. The reported temperatures will never drop below 32 for Core 0, and 39 for Core 1. Even after I resume from suspend, when the CPU should be at room temperature, as soon as I boot up it's 39/32. Similarly, while temperatures above that on SpeedFan show normal fluctuations, like you expect from a CPU temperature reading, once it hits the floor, it just becomes a flat straight line.

I'm not sure if this is the sensors, the software, or what.

Dell :: SXPS 16 Gets SOOO Hot Near The Trackpad!

Apr 26, 2009

I'm on my 2nd SXPS 16 (first one had dust under the glass) and on both systems the trackpad gets very hot even when I'm barely using the computer! Is there anything I can do to get the heat down? Is there a application that allows me to increase fan speed?

It really get uncomfortably hot even when it's just sitting on my desk with no programs running (and I have the 256GB SSD which I thought would reduce heat!). I also know this isn't an issue with the computer b/c the original one I had, had the same issue

Dell :: M1530 Trackpad Sometimes Unresponsive

Jan 15, 2009

my track pad on my M1530. I have sometime when I will run my finger across the track pad but the cursor with not move. It will jitter a little bit but will do nothing else. Then after a couple seconds, and sometime a hit on the palm rest, it will work again. It has happened probably the whole time I have had the laptop( 7 months), and now it seems to be occurring more frequently. Also, for the whole time I have had the laptop, the track pad will not always register a tap on it as a click, it just sits there like I did nothing. I know that could be a setting, but I have messed with them the best I can and it has changed nothing. Do you think this could be a driver issue, I have updated the driver since I got the laptop, or could it be bad hardware that came with the laptop. I have a complete care warranty, so they would probably replace it no problem, and I am already going to have the motherboard replaced because of a broken clip on the Ethernet port.

Dell :: E6400 Trackpad Getting Stuck

Apr 9, 2009

I am running the E6400 on Vista Ultimate x64 with the trackpad drivers.

Every so often (probably once week) the trackpad will stop functioning: the buttons keep working but the pointer does not move. At that point the only thing I can do is to shut down and reboot. There doesn't seem anything systematic about what I am doing before to trigger this.

I normally have the pointing stick switched off, I've turned it back on to see how that interacts
