Dell Latitude E6330 :: After Installing New Hard Drive Cannot Disable Touchpad
Apr 5, 2013
I have a Dell Latitude E6330 laptop and I recently replaced my hard drive as my old one had died--this was confirmed by the IT department at my school. After replacing the hard drive on my laptop, I found that the Fn+F5 command to disable my touchpad/touch stick was unresponsive. Upon further inspection, the touchpad button on my system tray was gone, and all touchpad related functions of my laptop were gone. In place of my touchpad (and all windows, settings, options, etc. ... that concerned it) was this ps/2 compatible mouse, which I am not allowed to disable.
I am a gamer and a student, and having my touchpad/touch stick enabled hinders my ability to type or play games as easily as I am used to due to misclicks. I used to be able to set my laptop to disable my touchpad (and other related hardware) automatically when I plugged in a USB mouse, and I would like to return to this setting if possible. How to do this without disabling the touchpad in the BIOS (as I do need to use my touchpad during lectures) ...
how I disable the touch-pad on my Latitude E5400 so that I can use an external mouse. I have a bad habit of brusing my touchpad with my palm and move the line on which I am typing to one elsewhere in the document.

I have been getting a random blue screen popping up every once and a while, that will "dump my physical memory" or something and then reboot itself after like 30 seconds. my hard drive was the reason for these constant errors. So I backed everything up, in preparation of a real crash. I am in the process of ordering a new hard drive from Newegg.com, and I would like to know if it is hard to replace a hard drive in a notebook, or if I should have Geek Squad do it for $50. Also, I dont think I have the Operating system disc that came with my computer, so how do I order that from HP and how much is it?And last but not least, Is there a post or video with instructions on how to install a hard drive and the operating system?
We have a Dell E6330 that is running Windows 7 Professional on it. we need to set this Dell back to factory defualts but do not see an option to do so. I know that it does have a recovery partition but I do not see a way to access it.
Back before Xmas, I had to reinstall the os so at the same time I changed the password for the hard disk that is set in the bios, before installing the os.
Problem is after the OS had installed and said it was shutting down to reboot, it never shut down properly so after 5-10mins I pushed the power button to force it to shut down.
Switched it back on, typed in the new hard disk password and it wouldnt accept it. Tried again but no success so tried the old hard disk password but even that didnt work. Anyway I've locked the hard disk now, not updated the bios or anything but wondered if there is anything I can do or Dell can do to unlock it?
Its an E6400 with the finger print scanner (can post the tag number) , I know its old laptop but still got all the receipts and everything to prove its not nicked and owned by the original owner.
We have a Latitude E6330 that was brought over from Japan running Windows 7 Professional.
The new user wanted teh default language to be English but still be able to use the Japanese characters on the keyboard as needed and so a copy of Windows 7 ultimate was installed on it. This achieved the goal of changing the primary language to English, but due to the fact that this was a US version of Ultimate and the original OS was Japanese, it did not due an upgrade but instead did a new install.
A side effect of this is now several Japanese keys are not recognized by the computer. Is there a driver or something that i will need to install for those keys to be mapped properly? I thought Windows would automatically recognize the Japanese keyboard.
My hard drive failed on my Inspiron 14z laptop. I ordered an exact replacement and installed it. The computer was purchased 2 1/2 years ago, and I downloaded the operating system on 4 DVDs per Dell instructions. After installing the new hard drive, I am downloading the 1st DVD. I come to a page that asks me to either click on "Restore my computer" or "Factory Recovery - Deletes data & resets all partitions". I click on Factory Recovery, hit next, and a new page comes up saying this application will recover your drive to the factory condition. "Do you confirm?" I click "yes", hit next, and I get yellow triangle with an explanation mark inside and it says "Your hard drive size is not supported for this process. Please use a hard drive at least GB in size.

My Macbook is coming in tomorrow, but I've already got a new hard drive that I'm planning to install on it. How do I install the OS onto the new drive? Do I just assemble the new drive in and put the CD that comes with the Macbook in and it'll do everything for me?

I had to install a new hard drive onto Dell Inspiron 17R (5720, Mid 2012). Ordered new hard drive from Dell, and also Operating System reinstall DVD. Windows was loading, but computer shut down and did not restart. I pressed the power button to restart, but now get 'BOOT MGR is missing' error, and don't know what to do next. I chose 'Custom Installation' and selected the only hard drive that was visible when prompted. Computer will not restart with DVD or without DVD. What now? Windows 7-
I have to swap out the current hard drive on my old Power Mac G5 because it's become unreadable. I've decided on the hard drive to replace it, but I have no idea how to go about installing the operating system. Moreover, my Power Mac G5 came with 10.3.5 Tiger, so is it safe to upgrade to Leopard even if I have older components?
I just got a new 640GB hard drive, and plan to install OS X, Windows XP, and Ubuntu on it. I would like some guides and recommendations on which operating system to stalled first, and what other preparation/softwares I need to get before installing.

I have an HP Pavillion dv6000 notebook with a hard drive that is partitioned. One partition contains the recovery program, which will install Windows XP should I ever need it to do so. I have recently installed Windows 7 on the other partition, and believe it would make sense to install Windows 7 on the recovery partition, so that if it is ever needed, it would reinstall Windows 7 rather than Windows XP. How can I accomplish this?
I have Acer Aspire 5742G notebook and I'm having problems installing the Windows 7 OS on my new SSD hard drive (I bought the SSD because the original hard drive is failing and making blue screens all the time...)For the factory restore, I'm using restore discs. I burned the discs few years back when the laptop insisted me of doing it (by using eRecovery or something, 3 dvds total).
The computer tries to install the OS with the dvds (asks to insert a dvd and then press a key). The actual problem is that the installer is just going in loops, restarting and eventually freezing in the end.. Reboot -> Acer logo -> Windows is loading files... -> Starting windows -> Reboot -> etc.That kept going for more than a hour (on the first dvd!) and suddenly it just froze on the "starting windows" screen.. So I had to reboot and star over again.I can still use my old formatted HDD, should I make new set of recovery discs or use an USB drive?
I have a HP Envy 4 - 1046tx Ultrabook and the operating system is Windows 8.1 64-bit. While downgrading to Windows 7 64 bit I was unable to find the hard drives. In the installation screen it showed me "No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation.".
I downloaded all the versions (from latest to the oldest) of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers and tried installing them one by one but they didn't work and still the hard drives aren't visible. But if I use a Windows 8 installation disc and install the driver the hard drives are visible.
I need my computer to display the hard drives by default without requiring a SATA driver. How do I do that? My chipset manufacturer is Intel and the model is Ivy Bridge HM77.
My company has offered to give to me my Latitude e6410. However, I cannot keep the hard drive. It has to be destroyed per policy. I am able to pull off recovery information and build my own image. One more concern is that the current hard drive is encrypted with Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE). Therefore, I do not want to simply clone the drive as I do not want no cannot use that image.
Also, if I need to reinstall my own image of Win 7 from new disks, will this e641 run 64bit. Currently the OS is WIn7 Pro.What about the recovery partition? I already have a spare 5ooGB 7200rpm 2.5" disk and i have a lot of hardware experience so I have no concerns about the actual disk replacement. It's just the image.
I am getting a hand me down Dell D430 (Latitude) but it coming with a dead hard drive.
Can you all please help me ind a replacement hard drive, or suggest some possible alternatives for me to use in this laptop. I know it takes a 1.8in PATA/IDE hard drive but I am having trouble finding any.
If you can suggest with a link a good hard drive for me to use.
