The ambient light sensor on my M3800 seems to Think the room is darker than what it actually is, so the display is Always too dark, even if I turn the display brightness to maximum. I cannot find a way to turn off the sensor, not even in the bios.
Shouldn't I be able to simply press and release the power button to power on the laptop for a cold boot?
I'm not sure if I'm powering on my M3800 properly or if it's a problem.
All scenarios are after the laptop had been completely shut down and powered cable attached.
(1) Just pressing and releasing the power key powers it up sometimes (2) When 1 doesn't work, sometimes pressing and holding the power key (for ? secs) will power it up (3) When neither 1 nor 2 will work, sometimes double-pressing the power key will power it up
The times it doesn't power up, the power button lights, keyboard lights and goes off, then power light goes off.
It eventually always powers up (so far) but would like to make sure it's not a hardware problem.
W7 64, OS on 256SSD New Unmodified Automatic Updates
I have a new M3800 Precision Workstation that is making a really annoying sound when it is plugged into power and when the SSD is being accessed, mostly when it is being accessed randomly such as search, VM running, or just random file access test from benchmarking software. The pitch of the scratchy sound varies with screen brightness.
I've made a video of it here [View:youtu.be/jbEkRDrPTdA:550:0]
Got an issue with new Dell Precision M3800 + HD 3100 Dock. My issue with with the mouse pointer. After using the laptop for 2-3 hours, I'm getting an issue in which the mouse pointer will jump over text boxes (does this in any browser, when trying to click in the formula field in excel, even when clicking in this dialog box to type). Basically what's happening is the mouse pointer thinks the text box is higher than it really is.
So, if I go up to the address bar from under, as I pass over the bar, the arrow changes to a text cursor, but jumps above the actual address bar...if I click, I can type in the bar. If I keep going, eventually the arrow pointer will come back, but it will jump back down to the actual top of the address bar. In the case of typing in this box for posting, in order to get the cursor here " ", I have to click where I have the star above (in the word "can").
It just seems like something is very out of sync, and I'm thinking it has to do with the graphics card or some resolution setting. I have an Acer V246HL set to 1920x1080 + a Viewsonic VA2746M set to 1920x1080 as well. Only fix I've found so far is to reboot. I've messed around with the resolution numerous times. This issue only appears when connecting multiple monitors (which is a necessity). I did not have this issue w/ my previous laptop, which leads me to think this is not a monitor issue either
I've recently purchases a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 540 and it worked just fine untill earlyer today.While i was browsing the internet, some how my touchpad developed a problem.It only registeres right click where ever i click.I've deleted the drivers, even tho they were the knewest ones, downloaded a fresh .exe and installed it after the reset and what not and it still has the same problem.
If i turn off the touchpad in the ultranav software and enable only trackapad, the buttons work like they should, the large area in the touchpad registeres as the left click and the small area in the top right is registered as the right click. Tho i can't use the touchpad for navigation.So clicking doesn't works, well neither does tapping. I can doubletap normaly, but i cannot tap and drag such as selecting a block of text.
Again, i've already tried a fresh install of ultranav drivers and it didn't work. The problem manifested itself during normal browsing, nothing was installed nor changed hardware vise. It litteraly changed in a second.how to solve it since the driver reinstall didn't work.
I recently upgraded my Z580 to Windows 8.1 x64 from Windows 8x64
Some Windows 8.1 drivers work, for some things I had to use Windows 8 drivers
But the touchpad isn't registering a two finger click as a right click on either of the drivers. It used to work fine on Windows 8 but I have to use the button to right click which is uncomfortable. Two finger scrolling works fine, pinch zoom gesture works fine, even Windows 8 screen edge gestures work perfectly...
My laptop is ideapad z510 and os is windows 8.1All action and gestures are working in elan touchpad except two finger pad (Right Click)I searched the forum and found that the synaptic driver can fix this problem, but when I want to install it tell me that this system does not have any synaptic touchpad!I test both lastest update from Lenovo and Microsoft for touchpad driver, but didn't solve this problem!
I wish to disable the touch pad on my Inspiron 1545 with Windows 8.. I have a Logitech wireless mouse. Currently both the mouse and the touch pad operate the curser. I want to only use the mouse. In Windows 7 the default was mouse only as soon as the wireless interface was installed. This is not the case with Windows 8.
I've been told to go to the Device driver and select the touch pad under Mouse and other pointers. The touch pad is not listed. I've tried disabling the PC Mouse compatible but the disable button is inactive.
Received a new Latitude E7440 today, and I like having the option of a pointing stick and a trackpad depending on what I'm doing, however the pointing stick apparently also can be "clicked" instead of using the dedicated buttons... this is annoying to say the least.
When I'm moving the mouse pointer with the pointing stick, if I press a little too hard it thinks I'm trying to do a click/drag.
I can operate the dedicated buttons just fine, so is there some way to disable this pressure-sensitive click feature on the pointing stick? Otherwise I'll have to disable the stick entirely as it's more annoying that having somebody randomly clicking the mouse buttons while you're trying to work...
Although I'm using my X1 Carbon since September 2012 and work with it every day for at least 8 hours, I still can't get used to the Trackpad: the biggest problem is that I accidentally right-click all the time, because when clicking in the lower right corner of the Trackpad, it's a right-click. On a 'normal' Trackpad, this would not be a problem, because there would be some physical divider that would give my fingers feedback on when I've reached the right-click-area...
The solution would be to disable the corner click completely since I'm not using it anyway. Unfortunately, the respective "Configure"-button is disabled in my UltraNav tool window. See the screenshot:
Is there any way, I can disable this "corner click" manually? I'm not afraid of hacking the registry or some config files.
I would like to use the trackpoint as a proper middle click instead of the (also useful) proprietary scroll mode. Basically same problem as discussed here: [URL] ......
However that article seems a little old. The synaptics control panel on the W540 seems to be markedly different and I cannot for the life of me find out where to disable that or set the middle click to be a regular middle click.
As a confirmed trackpoint user, having the mouse built into the trackpad of the T431s is causing me all sort of grief, including sore wrists - but there are two problems I can't seem to diagnose.
1) When clicking the pad for left mouse click, it often does not work until I click it a few times. I notice this more when I disable the trackpad for cursor movement (which I had to do because the cursor moves when I try to click) - but its there even when that is enabled. It comes and goes. I guess there could be some foot trapped in there, but I've only had it a week and been pretty careful. I'd rather not learn to remove the keyboard on day 6.
2) The right click gets into a condition where, when browsing,a click brings up a new tab of the link I clicked on, rather than showing me the options (open in new tab, incognito window, save link, etc). If I connect a real mouse, it is normal.
I have had this problem for a while. I used to have Vista installed on my 1420, it had taken me a long time to find a 64bit driver for the ALPS touchpad that featured middle click (when you click both buttons, it registers as a middle click).
Now, I am on Windows 7, all Vista 64 bit drivers for the ALPS work with Windows 7, but I am having trouble finding the driver that I had used with Vista64 that allowed me to use middle click.
I have searched on Dell's driver page and literally installed almost every driver they have for ALPS touchpads. Almost all of them have the ability to use the feature middle click, but they never work. I was wondering if there are any 1420 owners out there that have, or know where one could find a 64 bit driver that allows me to use middle click?
About a month ago my touchpad started to act up. I couldn't use the touchpad to click on anything with any consistency. I tried the reinstall of the driver but no change. I bought a new touchpad assembly and it worked perfectly for about a week. Now the pad part works but the scroll feature doesn't. When I install the latest driver from Synaptics the scroll works but the pad is erratic. I've rolled the driver back to the 2006 edition and the pad works perfectly but no scroll. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I have a Lenovo G500. After use, the keyboard touchpad does not click at first. The mouse can be moved first touch, but just click on the second touch. If no default driver installed, you can click after first use keyboard.
I have owned my Dell M1330 notebook PC (specs in signature below) for over 4 years. Several weeks ago, the left and right-click touchpad buttons stopped working. The touchpad itself seems to be operating normally. I surmise I inadvertently deactivated the touchpad. I checked the manual, but it did not reveal how to reactivate (or deactivate) the touchpad buttons. How to reactivate the touchpad buttons, such as using the shortcut keys? I read one post in a PC forum of a similar situation; in that situation, the user's touchpad cable had come loose, but I understand this is a rare occurrence. How to reactivate the touchpad left and right-click buttons.
I have this system running on Win 8.1; The touchpad is possessed. It moves and click on its own half the time. I've upgraded the drivers to the latest 4/01/14 release but to no avail. I've even restored the system but the result is the same.
Steps I've tried which took nearly 50+ hours to do:
1) restore, uninstall dell drivers, update to newest drivers;
2) restore, and update to newest drivers over existing drivers (included in the restore)
3) performed steps 1 & 2 with and without WOW64
I've been having to use the mouse to save me from this, however, the touchpad still takes over and moves the cursor on its own, though less frequent.
I am using HP Pavilion G6 notebook with product number LR774PA#ACJ .Neither the touchpad lock is working nor the click functionality of the toucpad. Though I am able to scroll using toucpad.I tried to uninstall an d reinstalling driver for the touchpad.Every tym I restrats my laptop I have to uninstalll driver an d restart my laptop again for proper functioning of the touchpad.
dell 5547/win 8.1 touchpad left click not responding correctly randomly, not all times, left click not work and both clicks respond as right click sometimes once or twice a week….or two or three times a day.
latest driver updated and also driver uninstall and re-install OS format and reinstall but problem still there.
i recently got a new studio 1555, i wanted to disable my touchpad while using an external mouse so i use the feature in the touchpad properties that disables the touchpad
once an external pointing device is connected. The problem is, once i disconnect the mouse the touchpad does'nt turn on again, is that normal behavior? should'nt the touchpad come back to life once i disconnect my mouse.
