Dell Inspiron 5545 :: Touchpad Occasionally Double Clicks

Dec 17, 2014

I just opened my new Inspiron 15 (5545, Mid-2014), and the touchpad occasionally double clicks. When I press the lower left corner, I sometimes get a single click (which is what I'm expecting), but I also sometimes get a double click. If I simply tap the touchpad once, I can get a single click, but I should be able to use the left-click button.

I've checked the Dell Touchpad settings, and I verified that the left button is set to "Click" and not "Double click". I ran the Dell Touchpad test in My Dell, but all it was checking for was whether or not the buttons and touch surface were responsive. It didn't seem to indicate whether the press was a double click or a single click.

Dell Inspiron 17R :: Boots Occasionally - Getting Beep That Almost Clicks Every 2 Seconds

Jan 29, 2015

I have an Inspiron 17R that is 4 months out of warranty.  99% of the time when you hit the power button the power light comes on, the disk light comes on and you can hear it spin.  Then all you get is a beep that is almost a "click" every 2 seconds.  You have to hold the power button to actually power off again.  

SOMETIMES you can hold the "D" down with power up and get the screen to go through the rainbow routine.  But on totally rare occasions it will boot and come up in Windows and you can login, etc and work normally.  I cannot pinpoint the sound because it actually sounds like it's coming from the speaker.

I get no Dell logo or POST diagnostics, so I can't go into setup or advanced diagnostics either.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E531 Touchpad Sometimes Clicks Automatically

Nov 13, 2013

I have a brand new Edge E531 that I have upgraded to Win 8.1. I am trying desperately to learn to use the TouchPad, and by tweaking the various settings I am able to get it to work ok.
 
Except for one thing: sometimes, it seems that the TouchPad will automatically perform the default action in a dialog box or click a button automatically.
 
I have gone through all the settings and see nothing related to this.
 
Is this known behavior? Can it be prevented?, I know I can disable the TouchPad and only use TrackPoint, but since Lenovo no longer has separate right and left mouse buttons, I find it hard to use.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Not Recognizing Mouse Clicks

Mar 2, 2013

I own a Dell Inspiron N5010.  I am having a problem with the mouse, both the touchpad, and when I plug an external mouse in (although the problem seems to occur with somewhat less frequency when I am using the external mouse).  The computer is having trouble recognizing mouse clicks.  Sometimes it recognizes them properly, sometimes it responds to left clicks as if they were right clicks, and sometimes it does not respond to them at all.  The problem seems to be worse when I am using  a web browser, but it occurs consistently.

Dell Inspiron N5040 :: Left Click Is Double Clicking

Apr 13, 2013

I have a  Dell Inspiron Model# N5040.

I have a problem with double clicking. (assume that all clicking is the left click) It is most apparent on the internet, when I hit the back button once, I go back two pages. Its annoying, but now i'm having trouble highlighting, and other important tasks. I do know about keyboard alternatives, but the mouse is just more convenient. 

This problem started soon after my laptop survived having orange juice spilled onto it.

I have done my own research, and most forums state a software problem, but I am sure that I have a mechanical problem. I noticed that there is an "upstroke" and  a "downstroke" to my click. When I click, that is the downstroke, the mouse performs as it's supposed to; but when I lift my finger, there is a second click that I did not intend, the upstroke. I've tested this on button clicking games on my laptop, and on other computers.

Dell Inspiron 15Z 5523 :: Windows 8 - Ghost Clicks On Touchscreen

Mar 17, 2013

I've recently bought an Inspiron 15Z 5523 (Win 8) and started experiencing ghost clicks on the touch screen (primarily on the left side of the screen). Once it starts happening, it pretty much makes it impossible to use the laptop since it starts to click/zoom/scroll randomly continuously. Leaving it alone wont fix it. I have to turn off the laptop via the power button and the problem fixes itself sometimes after turning it back on, but at other times, have to leave it off for longer. I have also tried wiping the screen clean, but doesn't work either.

How can I disable the touch screen temporarily?

Lenovo G500s B / G Series :: Won't Power On Although Lights Occasionally Turn On?

May 2, 2014

I've have had a Lenovo g500s running windows 8.1 for almost a year and never had an major issue. But recently I have found that it will not turn on. I have found that by taking out and putting the battery back in will rarely result in the battery light blinking in red. If i try to turn it on at this point it will turn for a few second "prepare for automatic repairs" and then in a few seconds turn back off its original turned off state. I have tried "Flee-Power" while calling technical support and it made a small noise and then issued a burning smell. It's 1 year warranty is still valid.

Dell :: D630 & D420 Double

Dec 22, 2008

This is just fabulous. Dell has essentially shut down my business indefinately. On Wednesday, my D630's (my primary machine) hard drive failed. They sent me a "new" hard drive on Thursday. Great. But, it was a "refurbished" drive of a different brand, and something wrong with the bracket fitting left the sharp corner of the bracket sticking out of the side of my computer. Ok, I get yet another on Friday -- same thing. They promise to send me a new bracket assembly along with it, in case the one on the other drive is bad, too. Got the "new" refurb in today. As expected, they didn't include the new bracket hardware, this one has the same problem and, in addition, the thing is a cheapee Fugitsu (my original was an 18 month old Seagate) that is scraped up on the sides and seems to have some of the connectors broke off! Their only options are -- wait for it -- to send me another POS,non-fitting refurb drive, or send it to the depot, where they'll keep my computer for two weeks and send it with the jagged edges of the refurb drive hardware sticking out the side of my lappy.

So, lucky me, I can't play their "refurbished" drive game any more, and I had to pay to order a new one from New Egg. So, now the computer will be out at least a week after the drive failure, and I'll still be faced after a week's down time with rebuilding the programs and data.

But wait, it gets better. I've been working on my refurb (purchased 10/2007) D420 with 2 years of warranty left on it since my D630 went down. As "luck" would have it, the thing is suddenly getting scalding hot on the bottom near the vent, and my PC Card slot has failed, so that I can't get on my mobile broadband. Looks like the darned motherboard on this one is going, and I have to send it into the depot, where I'll likely get more of their "refurbished" (read, "used") parts. 7-10 business days for this one, and now I have no computer, can't use my primary programs, and I've lost tons of data.

Sony :: VGNFW35X Double Lamp Or Not

May 11, 2009

I'm trying to build my own vaio(VGN-FW-35X) on the uk sonystyle page, but it's not clear if the 1920x1020 is using a double lamp technology or not.

Tried sony customer services but that had no clue they will call me back some time this week.

All it says on the page is:
16.4" LCD, 1920x1080 + webcam [+ 60.0] [New Price: + 0.0 , you save 60.0 ]

is it double lamp or not?

HP ZBook 15 :: Mouse Double Click When Using Docking Station?

Oct 28, 2009

I have a zbook 15 mobile workstation and love it.  I have a docking station at work and same docking station at home.
 
When I plug into the docking station at home the mouse will double click every time I single click. If single click, I have to quickly move off of the object or it will double click every time. I've tried a new mouse, reducing double click speed, and does NOT happen on my docking station at work or when using laptop with mouse plugged in locally.
 
It is extremely frustrating and makes working from home a pain rather that productive.

HP Envy TS 17-j017cl Display :: Touchscreen Clicks Screen By Itself

Feb 9, 2014

Windows 8 64 bitProduct Number: E9G80UAI recently bought this about 4 months ago and it did fine for a little while. But recently it would do this annoying glitch. The screen would act as if I am pressing the screen somewhere in the middle of it and selecting anything within it's range. This may not seem so bad by the sounds of it, but if you're playing a video or are on a website with links in that area it will either click on a link or stop/play videos. It's very annoying!

Troubleshooting: At first I thought it might be my touchpad, so I made sure I didn't touch it during these times. But it would still do it even if I'm not touching the laptop. So if I were to only use my wireless mouse to go through webpages or whatever, it would still do the phantom clicking.I then thought maybe it's my wireless mouse, so I disconnected the USB receiver from the laptop and it still does it.I then tried getting tech support online with HP and they accessed my computer and tried a few things like removing the touchpad driver and whatnot with no results. He eventually told me I would have to send it to them to have it repaired (still in warranty). However, I don't have the time to send my laptop to them for repairs.

My final thought was to disable the touch screen. Which I did by going to device managers and disabling one of the HID options. I had several, so I had to try each one since none were labeled as touch screen, but only as HID compliant device. This has worked so far and it hasn't clicked anywhere yet.

I thought about updating the driver, but I can't find it on the HP site and when I try to update driver through device manager it says that it has the best driver available, which most of the time is BS. I guess I just need to know where I can find the true driver for the touch screen.
