HP/Compaq :: Two Finger Scrolling And Three Finger Gestures (Should Work On ALL HPs With Synaptics Touchpads)
Two finger scrolling now works on the synaptics touchpad of my dv7
I had previously attempted to use modded drivers and other apps (none of which worked), but surprisingly, synaptics seems to have enabled it all by themselves in the latest driver, which is part of scrybe.
More about scrybe: [url]
1. Download the ScrybeSetup.exe file from here (you can enter a junk email): [url]
2. Install the software (Make sure it installs both scrybe and the new driver)
3. Go to Control Panel>Mouse>Device Settings (Tab)>Highlight Synaptics Touchpad Vx.x> then click settings
4. Once you have the Touchpad settings windows open, you can change all kinds of settings:
Multifinger Gestures>Two Finger Scrolling (Click the gears next to the name)

Dell :: 2 Finger Scrolling, Alps Touchpad, Inspiron 1545
I recently bought an Inspiron 1545 and absolutely cannot stand not being able to 2-finger scroll. The "side pad" function works poorly at best, and is so undependable that I am resorted to using a mouse whenever possible.
How on earth can I get my Inspiron 1545 with an Alps touchpad to have 2 finger scrolling similar to Mac systems? Is it even possible?
HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Touchpad Not Scrolling Down
Yesterday it prompted me to install a whole crap load of uploads onto my computer.
So after the Nvidia and two others (can't remember them) I was prompted up download a new driver that would solve the problem of the scroll randomly not working.
Well they solved the random part but now it's not scrolling at all.
HP/Compaq :: Envy Beats Or Envy 15
beats edition as compared to the envy 15 version.
1. What reason is there for the 800 dollar difference in price other than the beats headphones?
2.Does the back of the case only have the beats logo on it or is there any type of laser etching like on the original envy.
Apple :: 4 Finger Swipes On Macbooks
Once you get used to surfing the web and working on these Macbooks I find them pretty amazing. The 4 finger swipe where you can just switch between applications and screens is a really nice feature to have compared to having to move the mouse to the corners on Windows 7. For basic web surfing and switching between applications and browsers I find this feature really great to have
When someone walks in and you have something open you simply swipe 4 fingers up and your current application that is open just vanishes like magic 4 fingers back down and it comes back down again
How are you liking your 4 finger swipe feature on your Macbooks?
Dell :: Fingerprint Reader Just Burnt My Finger
as the dramtic headline says i just went to log onto my e6500 and placed my finger on the FIPS fingerprint reader and it roasted me !
and it didnt even log me in either , but worst part is it made me recoil a little and the machine fell of my lap and the screen lid took a knock on the floor,
so i now have a cracked screen lid .....
Dell :: M1330 Finger Print Reader
I recently have ordered an M1330 but I have been looking at some of the user pictures that do not have the finger print reader. Is this because it is not standard on the laptop and do you need to pay extra? (Im talking about the NZ/AUS version [url] theres no option to include or exclude it like the US site).
Also is it possible to upgrade from the LCD to LED in the future, if so how much?
Sony :: Vaio Scrolling
I can't scroll down with my arrow keys on my laptop. Remember some button popped up last week or so and i absentmindedly clicked yes,
and have no idea what it said, so I think i may have inadvertently typed in some kind of anti scroll code or something like that
Dell :: Precision M6400 Finger Print Reader
I have a brand new dell precision m6400. It didnt include the finger print reader and over at part people.com i can get two different types of finger print readers.
Dell Precision M6400 Center Control Power Button Cover with FIPS Swipe Module
Dell Precision M6400 Center Control Power Button Cover with Biometric Fingerprint
Now what does FIPS Swipe Module mean?? What are the difference between them?
Dell :: XPS M1330 Scrolling
My friend has an XPS m1330 that cannot scroll in certain places. For example, on the program list in the Start Menu, it cannot scroll up or down. It shows the "scrolling" symbol next to the mouse cursor. This same problem occurs in certain games.
All drivers have been installed. Is this just a Synaptics issue?
Acer :: TM 800Hardware- Extreme Scrolling
I am having a problem with my TravelMate 800.
The mouse and keyboard are involved. When attempting to type (in Word or in a web-browser), the cursor will immediately scroll downdown, and will only stop when pressing the "escape" key. When you start typing again, the problem re-occurs, making typing extremely frustrating. The "page down" key also doesn't work.
When restarting, a blank screen will appear with a blinking "-" cursor at the top of the screen, and the notebook will beep nonstop until you press a key. Windows will then slowly load. It is not a virus problem as I've checked using Norton Antivirus, and removed
I believe it's most probably a software problem, and have tried to repair my system, but the recovery CDs didn't work. I got fed up and tried to format the notebook.... at first, the system CD loaded, but wouldn't go anywhere and there was a "not ready reading from drive z: abort, retry or fail" option, and none of the options worked. After attempting to reboot the second time, it would come up to a point saying:
PS/2 device found
Mouse driver installed
HP/Compaq :: Envy 14 Or 15
I'm shopping for laptops right now and I'm pretty much stuck between these two. My main question for the 14 is will it be able to do full hd? I know 1920x1080 is a bit much to ask for on a 14.5" screen but I haven't been able to find a solid answer for this question. The 14 has more features and the internal cd drive is a plus, but not a dealbreaker for the 15 since the cd drive isn't used too much. Taking out price, which one would be a better buy?
HP/Compaq :: Envy V2
I have a couple of questions about the Envy v2. I'm certain the answers are somewhere in the massive owner's thread but it's way too long to want to go through at this point.
My questions are:
1) Audio quality of external speakers. Is there enough bass in them? Do they sound "tin-y"?
2) Noise from the fan when the GPU is in high use. How loud is the fan? Has anyone put a decibel meter to it?
3) Temp of the GPU. My Studio 15 is hitting a high of 70c when running and was wondering how the newer ATI is.
HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 G2
The first I heard about the Envy line was that it was a gorgeous laptop with a great display and above-average speakers. However, it was fundamentally flawed with a horrible trackpad and overheating issues(present in the 13, but further aggravated in the 15). After the spectacular fail of a release, I dropped the Envy out of consideration.
To the present, I've recently started looking at a huge array of laptops and have taken the Envy into consideration again. From what I've heard, the Envy 15 is in its second generation(I need a full-HD laptop and won't be considering the Envy 13). It now comes equipped with a i5 processor and the HD5830.............
HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 I7
I pulled the trigger and purchased an envy with these specs,
• Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
• Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-720QM Processor (1.6GHz, 6MB L2 Cache, 1333MHz FSB) w/Turbo Boost up to 2.8 GHz
• 4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
• 320GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
• 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) HD 5830 Graphics - For i7 Processors
• 15.6" diagonal Full High Definition LED HP Ultra Brightview Widescreen Display (1920x1080)
• Webcam Only
• Intel Wireless-N Card with Bluetooth
• HP Color Matching Keyboard
• 6 Cell Lithium Ion Polymer Battery
Sony :: To Enable Variable Scrolling On Trackpad
Just got a Vaio Z, which I love in many ways -- except for the trackpad. My old Dell E1505 had a trackpad in which it would scroll more or less based on how quickly you moved your finger up/down the right side of it. So, you could use it to get to the top/bottom of very large documents in a single fast swipe.
Meanwhile, the Z's trackpad only seems to move a fixed number of lines with each swipe. This is a HUGE downgrade, as it takes forever to move through a large document.
Is there any way to get variable-line scrolling working on a Z trackpad?
HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Temps
HP's envy 15 line with the ATI 5830 GPU (i7-720/820). I do have one big concern however, and that is heat. Could anyone post their max GPU / CPU / HD temps they usually get while running an intensive game / benchmark?
HP/Compaq :: Are There Any Refreshes For The Envy 15
I came across an Envy, and it looked really light and cool.
The Envy 15 seems to have good specs, with the 5830 and i5's or i7's, 4 sodimms (right?) 1080p screen.
The Envy 14, however, seems to be a bit weak..
Is there a special feature in the Envy 14 that I better wait for? or, is the Envy 15 still a reasonable machine that I could aim for in my trade?
I can't really find the part that explains the refreshes of the Envy 15..
I really want to know if the Envy 14 is a different league than the Envy 15, or if they are in the similar league so that I should wait for the 14 model.
HP/Compaq :: Overclock- For The Envy 15
I'm already playing with the clock speeds i didn't bother with a full reinstall. i got rid of all the bloatware, fixed the stupid fn key function keys thing, and it runs fine.
i didn't get the 10.3 preview driver due to a lot of instabilities i keep hearing about. gonna wait for it to come out. i'm still using the original driver version that came with the computer. i got amd gpu tools, and oced to 520/1050 just to start. so far my temps never went above 70C how do i keep this clock speed when i restart? also, i notice the default settings downclock the gpu when it's not doing anything intensive, and they go up to 500/800 when they need to. if i lock in my oc when i restart (if i can), will it still downclock when it doesn't need the speed?
HP/Compaq :: Possible To Obtain G2 Envy 15 In The UK
Im currently wading through the 500 page owners thread, but I thought I might be able to get an immediate response here.
Im looking for the i5 model of the Envy 15 with the 5830 video card - doesnt seem to be available here in the UK unless I use an importer on ebay, which I am not sure I want to go ahead and do (mainly warranty concerns).
If I cant Im goiing to go with a Sony Vaio F with the i5 Processsor, but my preference at the moment is for the HP if I can get it.
HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Going Back
I so wanted to like it because it does everything I need in such a portable package but whoever created the trackpad design should be freaking shot.
I've tried all of the various settings and the latest drivers but all of them freak out pretty badly if you leave you motion finger on the trackpad at the same time as clicking. God forbid you actually want to click and drag something (in the normal "hold down the button and move the pointer" method, not any custom gestures).
The limited tilting on the screen was really annoying (use thee laptop a fair amount at home standing up) but it would have been workable if it weren't for the trackpad issues.
Guess I'll be looking at the elitebooks and precision workstations instead (giving up on the portability for a better screen and usability)
HP/Compaq :: Envy Or VAIO E
I'm looking at either the Envy 14 or the VAIO E 15.5" - but can't make my mind up as they are both roughly the same size and spec and should be similar in price ......
Envy 14 - Pro's
- Sexy Metal Casing
- Backlit Keyboard
- Better Webcam
- Bigger Battery
VAIO E - Pro's
- Bigger Screen
- Full HD Resolution
- Keyboard with Number Pad
- Blu Ray
Which one would be be better for gaming ?
Which would hold it's value best when I try to sell it in about 18 months ?
HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Battery
i've had my Envy 15 for over two months now and although i don't use it frequently enough my wife noticed that on a full charge, unplug then the next day or so the battery is drained.
Basically here is what she does:
she would charge the laptop up
unplug then use it for like 20 mins
shut down Start>>shutdown
About or two days later she would try to use it and the thing wont turn on. Plug in the brick and voila! thing comes up.
Is she not shutting down properly? or is there some program on sleep eating the battery?
Or is that the rate this battery drains?
this is still on the FACTORY image, i didnt rebuild it
HP/Compaq :: HP Envy Reliability
I've been suggested an HP Envy 14 for college in the what computer should I get forum, but I've heard and experienced some pretty horriblebad things with HP notebooks (dv2000 series, in my personal experience). Can someone with an Envy attest to the reliability or lack thereof of this line?
HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 I7 Heat
I've been looking at the envy 15 and it really looks like a laptop I want. The only problem I've found about it(for me at least) is heat. While a lot of people say that with the i5 processors heat isn't an issue, I was wondering if with an i7 processor like the i7 820QM or i7 720QM the heat spikes up as compared to the i5 ones. Sorry if this just adds to heat questions but it seems a lot of people saying heat is fixed are people with i5 and I just wanted an answer from someone with an i7.
HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 Going Blank
I picked up a new Envy 15. Nice laptop! However, when paying $2000 for a laptop, I would like it pretty error free.
Every time I boot the laptop, the screen goes blank once it gets in to Windows, although the power light is on and you can hear the fans. Pressing the monitor or any other key does nothing. Need to reboot.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 14: Availabilty, Etc.
This was last rumored back in November '09, if memory serves, but it seems that it might actually materialize. The Envy is what keeps attracting me back to Windows 7-land after having been on OSX for awhile. I'm not a fanboy on either side, so I'm always back and forth based on hardware more than software, especially since using the Win7 RC last year.
The Envy 13 has good battery life (great with the slice battery), reasonably solid performance, a touchpad that has a quirk or two but otherwise bests most other laptop offerings, and an edge-to-edge screen at 1366x768 that generally gets good reviews.
The Envy 15 has crap battery life, fantastic performance, and an apparently great (optional) 1920x1080 display. Heat seems to be an issue, from what I gather.
I'm wondering if the Envy 14 is going to be the happy marriage of the best of both platforms. The only things keeping me from selling my MBP and going to the Envy 13 are the slightly lower battery life, slightly lower resolution, and loss of a couple of inches of screen real estate. With Boot Camp 3.1 and my Win7 Pro disc, I'd be better off just dual-booting with that sort of tradeoff.
I haven't found much as far as possible hardware/specifications of the 14, but I figured here is as good a place as any to start picking up info as it becomes available.
HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Screen
how the 1080P brightview screen is compared to some other good screens on the market? Anyone have a chance to compare this to the Studio 16 XPS 16 inch RGB screen or the 15.6 1080p screens of the Clevo W860cu or M15x (Among the best 15 inch screens on the market).
