Synaptics touch pad doesn't work

Q: Synaptics touch pad doesn't work

Hello! I've just installed Windows 7 Professional on my HP 350 G1. I have a problem with touch pad - it works, but just as mouse (and also installed as mouse). I've tried to update and downloaded synaptics driver, but it failed to be installed. I can't delete previous version of Synaptic driver and installed a new one, because it's not in Programmes list at all. Windows Update doesn't work as weel, if it's relevant.

After upgrading the RAM on my Envy 15 notebook my Synaptics PS/2 Port Touchpad does not work at all. The device does not show up on device manager, and under system information I get an error code that says "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed." I am not sure what the issue is, but in order to access the primary ram card on an Envy 15 you have to disconnect the keyboard/touchpad assembly from the motherboard. However, I have made sure that the touchpad cable is connected securely, and all other features (keyboard, led lights) all work fine. How do I go about troubleshooting this? Thank you.

A:Synaptics Touch Pad does not work after installing new ram

Re-check the internal connections for the touchpad. As it's had to be disconnected to access the RAM slots (a ridiculous design flaw in my opinion) I can't help thinking it has to be a connection issue, especially as Windows doesn't even acknowledge it's presence in Device Manager.

hi guys

i bought this a while back
Packard Bell EasyNote TE11HC review | Expert Reviews

default windows 8, i couldnt get on with windows 8 unfortunately then it went totally crazy so i installed a copy of windows 7 ultimate x64
with windows 8 my mouse pad was awesome, swipe pinch zoom two finger scroll etc.

now with windows 7 nothing, not even the side scroll section of the pad works just normal mouse navigation and button clicks

ive installed every driver under the sun ALL of them, old, new, windows 8, windows 7, 32bit, 64bit,
when i install synaptics it says its a regular ps2 mouse and pad no settings for multi touch

im not a total noob so i went through all the stuff i know and checked forums even downloaded gesture suite which couldnt intall due to errors, then cant uninstall synaptics drivers with revo uninstaller due to some dll error so uninstalled with device manager and deleted the registry entries with revo, but when i reboot windows auto installs drivers

i even went to settle with two finger scroll app, and that came with error no touchpad, but i must have a touch pad because it worked with windows 8
basically i cant get it to work, lol, cant take it anymore! how can i fix it chaps???

all of the drivers are working fine

ive honestly got all of the drivers 10/15 different drivers

A:Cannot get multi touch gestures or scrolling to work on synaptics pad

yeah so i'm stupid, there was a link underneath my post regarding harware IDS, i googled my hardware code ACPI EDE0500 somthing like that, first result was elantech, sooooo wasnt synaptics all that time, which is annoying because the software on windows 8 im sure said synaptics anywhoo, elantech for you folk out there who are silly like me

works fine now

Touch pad doesn't work if you close and open the laptop, sometimes the touch pad turns off on it's own. I have checked the settings for the touch pad and for what the computer does when closing the lid, they are correct. Tried booting in safe mode and still had same results. The only way to get the touch pad to come back on is if you reboot the computer. Any ideas?

So recently my laptop Pavilion DV6xxx updated the OS to Windows 10 64 bit and for some reason the touch pad works, but the scrolling system i.e. the designated scroll bar partition doesn't scroll any more. I have the Synaptics Pointing device software and my system is up to date in drivers yet it doesn't work. Please help as not being able to scroll with the touch pad is a huge inconvenience.

The touchscreen on my Yoga 260 isin't working. I first noticed this problem when the screen was acting wierdly. When you tap on your yoga a light circle appears and fades over time to mark or show where you tapped and when you swipe a trail or tail appears behind of where you swiped then disappears over time. So when I opened my Yoga these taps and swipes were appearing all over the screen ramdomly in a very rapid pace. So I restarted my Yoga and saw that the swipes and taps were still there. So I chose to restart the Yoga again and the taps and swipes dissapered. After that I noticed that the touchscreen became unresponsive but the computer runs as normal butthe screen is unresponsive. Before I discovered the problem I could remember dropped the computer a small height but caught it. If there's a solution to this problem I'm happy to listen! Thanks.

Hi, Please help! I updated to window 10 this evening and things seemed fine. I dowloaded a few apps and restarted the system. Whe the system came back - the cursor wouldn't leave the top of the screen - just flickering aroung the top edge. The keypad works, as do the left and right clicks and the pointing device, but I fing he pointing device imposible to use and as soon as either the touchpad is toched, or the pointing device is touched at the same time as the left and right clicks - the cursor goes straight back to the top of the screen (where the close button is) As I am sure you can understand - this is all but unworkable. I have looked to se if the driver needs updating - it doesn't. Can you help? Richard

Hi Guys...I'm using the Lenovo multi touch driver for my X61T. With Windows 7 build 7000 the same driver when I wake my laptop from sleep the touch screen works. Starting with build 704x (i can't remember the exact build but it was the first leaked x64 build) when I wake the machine from sleep the touch screen doesn't work (both pen and finger touch)

I have tried to change USB settings but I haven't seen any fix. A restart of the machine means the tablet works again. Any ideas about a patch until Lenovo makes new drivers for Windows 7?

A:Touch Screen doesn't work out of sleep

There is a registry patch for better USB connectivity after waking from sleep, available from Lenovo.

Lenovo Support & downloads - Registry patch to improve USB device detection on resume from sleep for Windows Vista - Notebooks

How's the touchscreen working for you? Hope it's great! I don't like touchscreens because the screen can heat up and flicking your finger around on it can really burn.

Hello everybody.

I got an ASUS N50Vn aka X5AVseries..

On the top of the keyboard I got a "touch panel" where I can control the volume, change the computers performance and so on.

But after installing Windows 7 it doesn't work.

Anybody knows what to do? Maybe a speciel driver I need?

Thanks, Peter.

I bought a windows 8 hp pavilion touchsmart and touch screen worked. I updated to Windows 10 and it worked, only after I did a factory restore did it not work. I've tried everything with the device driver and another factory restore and it still does not work. I sent my computer in to get it fixed while it was under warranty and it was still not fixed. I resigned to it not working and I think that hp should have solved this problem before selling its computers. So we are blaming it on Microsoft 10, but that is not the issue when it worked until I did a factory restore and attempted everything suggested. I have a 350 dollar piece of **bleep**. Plus now my Mic isn't working and there aren't any drivers for me to upgrade to, anywhere.

Screen was cracked so I replaced the screen. Now touch doesn't work.
There is no "Pen and Touch" and "Tablet PC Settings" in Control Panel. In PC info it says, "No pen or touch input is available for this display."
Touch DOES work on LINUX as I ran it from a usb drive, so it is not a hardware problem.
I have reinstalled Windows.
I have another Yoga 2 Pro and comparing Device Manager in both I see no differences.
How can I get the touch to work again?

A:Why doesn't my Touch work after replacing the screen on my Yoga 2 Pro?

try refreshing your PC maybe the driver is not working properly
If the touchscreen does show up on the device manager try updating the driver from there. (it will be listed under HID )
​Otherwise To refresh your PC Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, tap or click Get started.Follow the instructions on the screen.

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

The power button of the laptop doesn't turn on/off the laptop. I have to use a detachable remote to turn the laptop on. I don't see blue light on the power key, once the remote turns the laptop on.2. The quick play touch sensative keys above the laptop key board have blue light in most of them. But its flickering red for volume, and no indicator on the volume increase decrease touch region. Though some have blue indicator, red lights....none of the touch sensative keys function at present.3. The laptop touch pad is unresponsive. It has its blue light, which doesn't turn red even if the touch pad is locked. I use a USB mouse as of now.4. Laptop has 3 audio jacks. One for microphone, and 2 for headphone. The external speaker doesnt have any sound, so i have to plug in earphone everytime to listen anything. In control panel --> under sound --> playback ---> i see speakers and realtek digital output ---> both show green oscillating bars when an audio is played. But the volume key in quick play tab is flickering red all the time. The laptop is fully functional. But it would be great if the problems mentioned above gets fixed. Sincerely

I have been facing this issue from the day one since I installed Windows 10 on my laptop (Dell XPS L502x).

Native Windows Applications like all browsers, office products etc. anything that is not from the Store, works fine. I can use Touch Pad scrolling with no trouble. e.g. on Internet Explorer, Chrome, MS Word, etc.

But the apps that come out of store or the apps like those which come pre-built with Windows 10 such as new Settings UI, Microsoft Edge. Touch Pad scrolling just don't work with these apps. When I perform scrolling the scroll-icon appears but doesn't scroll the content.

This issue is only with Touch Pad. External Mouse works great with scrolling on any kind of app.

Hope to find a solution here.
Thanks

PS: drivers are all good on the machine and up to date with no warning or error.

A:Satellite U920T - front/back cam + touch screen + win button doesn't work

Since you mentioned different issues with your notebook, I think that in this case its advisable to recover the notebook back to factory settings just to check if all these problems are related to system problem.

Regarding the webcam: the Windows 8 /8.1 already contains the webcam drivers and therefore additional webcam driver installation isn?t possible. Additional webcam driver does not exist simply.

From my point of few the whole description smells a little bit like a hardware problem of the upper slide part where the touchscreen is part of.
The win button as well as the both cams are located there and probably there is some lose connection between the two parts (touchscreen and keyboard)

Anyway, as I said above, its advisable to recover the notebook to factory settings just to ensure that the system isn?t the troublemaker.
In case of hardware problems, you would need to get in contact with service available in your country.

I just installed a new ssd drive and Win 8 on my Lenovo S405 laptop. Everything works but Windows will not recognize the Synaptics touch pad on my laptop as a Synaptics pad but only as a generic PS/2 mouse. So I can't use scroll and other functions.

I tried updating the driver through Windows and it just insists that the best driver is already loaded.

I tried installing the correct 64-bit Windows 8 driver for my laptop directly from Lenovo and I get a message that says "No appropriate driver to be installed."

I know this is a problem with Windows and not the touchpad itself because when I put my old hard drive back in ... the touchpad and Synaptics software work exactly as they are supposed to.

This is driving me crazy. Please advise.

Hello,

I use Windows 7( 64bit) in my notebook.

The most recent version of synaptics touchpad driver (16.2.21) was installed.

In device manager, Synaptics PS /2 Port TouchPad is well operated.

However, I cannot select the Synaptics touchpad in the mouse properties of the control panel.

In 'button' of the mouse properties, 'wheel mouse connects PS/2 port' is the only option I can select. (The sentence "Wheel mouse connects PS/2 port" is interpreted sentence since my window is not Eng. version.)

Because of this, I cannot set the multi-touch function in the device setting, installed by the driver, of the mouse property.

How can I solve this problem?

Plz, give me your solution ~~

A:Synaptics touchpad is not operated well, especially multi-touch

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Do you have the Device Settings tab on the mouse properties window?
Did you update the drivers yourself?

You may want to go to your computer manufacturers website and download the drivers they recommend and uninstall the ones you are using now and install them.

Hi, I have a laptop (Compaq) which has a synaptics touch pad. The double tap function stopped working. Through device manager I reinstalled the software and it worked ok until I restarted. I rolled back the software and it worked ok....until I restarted. Each time I restart it stops working.. Any ideas? The laptop is running windows 10 anniversary edition. I'm not sure if I had this problem prior to the update to Win 10 anniversary edition or not. Its a test machine so although up to date is not used much. Thanks Al

Hi

I few week ago a friend was fiddling around with some of my startup programs and removed my touch pad.

When my PC starts up, I can still use the touchpad but it doesnt have all the features such as the double-finger-scoll and the zooming functions.

I'd like "Synaptics Pointing Device" to automatically start up as my pc does but i can't find it in the services offered so I have to do it manually every time.

Some help would really be appreciated.

Thanks

Just bought the HP Spectre x360 13-4195dx (13" convertible Laptop), and have updated the BIOS and windows 10. I always disable the "tap to click" feature of the laptop, but everytime i  restart the laptop, the tap to click reenables itself. I've tried to create a profile in the synaptics settings but that doesnt work either. Has anyone figured out how to permanently disable this feature? Thanks for your help.

A:How to Permanently Disable "Tap To Click" on Synaptics Touch...

I've found it!!! For any one looking for a solution to permanently disable the synaptics tap to click.... go to windows registry (search for regedit)expand "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"expand "SOFTWARE"expand "SYNAPTICS"expand "SynTP"Click on "Install"Under "Install" double click on "DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade" and change the value data from "1" to "0"this will make it so that when u restart your HP, your tap to click stays disabled. Becareful with the windows registry, if you dont know what your doing and you start to change values on things you shouldnt it can adversely affect your system.

This started recently and may have something to do with the fact that I switch back and forth between using the laptop as is with the touch pad and using it with a Logitech usb mouse at times.Seems that switching back and forth *shouldn't* cause a problem though.Anyway I get the "disappearing cursor" with both the touchpad and with the USB rollerball type mouse. What happens is it works fine then suddenly disappears then I have to move the cursor all over the place (without being able to see it) in order to eventually get it to appear again. This is annoying as heck and takes a lot of time, not just a second or two - sometimes I move the cursor around for 30 seconds or so before it reappears.I do not have "hide cursor when typing enabled". When trying to check the driver via Device Drivers it shows that it is the latest one but I kinda doubt it as I don't think I've ever updated it. IF it needs a new driver where do I find it? Thanks for your help, this is a big problem, really interrupts my productivity.

Hi there! I have a very annoying problem with my touchpad, I cant figure out how to enable the multi-touch gestures and drivers don't seem to work at all. First of all, my laptop is an Acer Aspire E5-572G-75MW. The drivers on the cd are for windows 8, (there's a synaptics and a elantech driver, when i try installing both of them, they install and at the end i get and "not needed, no device for update present"). I tried installing an elantech for w7 driver and i got an "ready to use" status at the end but absolutely nothing changed, no item in install/uninstall options, no item in control panel or in the mouse category, nothing. I tried the same thing with a W7 synaptics driver and i get the same status at the end but here i get two options:

Again nothing changed, even after restarting. I am unable to see any settings regarding my touchpad, this is all i get in the control panel mouse category:

That's all i get no matter what i try to install, i can't get anything to stick around, i've tried similar laptop's drivers, again with no luck at att and sucks since my touchpad has the clicking buttons integrated into the touchpad, its really annoying trying to scroll something. I tried enabling two-finger scrolling through some registry tricks but i couldnt find the right items and it didnt work.

A:Touchpad multi-touch/driver/synaptics problem

I downloaded the manual. The touchpad is explained on p17 of the manual. Since the notebook came with 8.1 and I can only find drivers for Windows 8, you may not get full usage out of the hardware because you are not running the correct version of Windows. The best drivers come from the hardware manufacturer and they are no providing any Win 7 drivers.

Greetings,

I have recently Install Windows 8 Pro, I have Sony Vaio VPCEE3J0E. Initially, I downloaded Sony's Pointing Driver (Alps) - 7.107.505.106 and it was just for basic touchpad function.
However, I found about Synaptics and downloaded the latest Synaptics V 16.2.21 and installed it.

Now once I go to my Control Panel ==> Mouse ==> Synaptic Properties, it shows nothing, there isn't any option for touchpad gesture etc.

I don't know why it isn't working but I think it should have worked. Please if anyone could help me.

i'm using windows 7 and have installed version 16.1.6.0 drivers for synaptics touchpad.

i want to enable chiral scroll motion, as well as to adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad, as the cursor keeps jumping jumping around when i type, making me keep having to correct gibberish.

i know this version of the drivers supports chiral scroll, multi-touch, and other adjustments to touchpad function, but when i pull up the device settings for the "PS/2 mouse port compatible touchpad", the only menu options it shows are "overview" and "buttons", which only contain the patent notices and button actions. but otherwise, there is no way to change the functionality of the mouse at all. none of the usual menu options are there.

i've reinstalled the drivers, tried other versions, and rebooted a million times, and nothing seems to help. i know the capability is there, but i just can't access it for some reason...

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. it's impossible for me to get anything done like this.

thanks so much!!

Hi, I was just looking at the Synaptics features in looking at a poster's issue, when I found that 'Show Video' opens a window as if to play it but only blinks 'Opening media'.

Now the videos are wmv's and mpg's and play correctly in my default player if I open them from their folder explicitly.

The player window opened by Synaptics is not my default player. It is something run by rundll32.exe.

I haven't tried reinstalling the Synaptics driver - yet.

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either
- and probably other stuff that I haven't took note of yet...

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed

I have a Samsung series 7 Slate, which works great and is really fast with Windows 8. But with one piece of software the touch screen doesn't work, the menu items will light up but nothing happens when you press them. If I use a mouse it works fine and as it should. I don't think it's the software because I also used it on a HP 500 Slate and the touchscreen worked fine on that.

If anyone has any ideas for a solution to this problem I would much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Mouse works but touch screen doesn't!

There is a bit of a glitch when using older touchscreen hardware with windows 8.

Nearly all older touchscreen hardware is implemented as an mouse emulator. So when pressing on the screen it simulates a mouse click.

Windows 8 makes use of the touchscreen interface rather than the mouse interface for touchscreens, and the driver it installed for your touchscreen (if it installed one) may not be working too well with the hardware. If you install a driver separately for that touchscreen you may get back the mouse emulation for the touchscreen, but then some of the better options like gestures and sweep scrolling may not work well or at all in windows 8.

So what you really need is a touchscreen driver that is really a touchscreen driver (not a mouse emulator driver) for that model of touchscreen on your slate. If you know the touchscreen manufacturer you can maybe find a beta on their site for Windows 8? Find the touchscreen device in the hardware control panel and look up it's VID and PID to find the manufacturer if the driver page doesn;t already tell you. (There is a website somewhere that'll look up the VID/PID and tell you what the product and manufacturer is)

But.. may be slim chance. If not, try finding the normal windows 7 touchscreen drivers for it, that may help some, though not guarantee it'll be fully functional.

One thing that bugs me I use Chrome as my browser of choice. It very often refuses to accept a touch from pen of finger, treating it as a right-click - showing the pop-up menu. If I minimise Chrome and bring it back, that sometimes fixes it, sometimes it takes a few goes, sometimes it requires closing Chrom and relaunching.
I have set the Chrome://flags Enable Touch Events to Enabled.
Any ideas?

A:why doesn't Chrom recognise touch on the Surface Pro 4

Going by a couple of searches on the internet it appears to be a common issue and it also appears to be a bit random. Some people have issues while others have none.
Have you tried re-installing Chrome to see if that fixes it?

Kay so I have Windows 7 64-bit and am using iTunes version 9.0.2.25.
My 8GB iPod Nano syncs fine, Windows 7 recognizes it as an iPod Nano when I check "Devices and Printers". It works with iTunes, opens up right away as it's supposed to and I can put music on it.

Now my 32GB iPod Touch is a different matter. Using the same usb port and cable, I plug in my iPod Touch and iTunes opens and attempts to sync. Eventually, it stops syncing, then I see it in iTunes as my what I named it, capacity at the top is 29.28 GB. Weird thing, at the bottom, capacity is only 4 GB (about 2 GB left)!?!?

Then I check "Devices and Printers" and it shows under "Unspecified" - Apple Mobile Device USB Drive. Under properties I see model says "iPod". It doesn't show any errors with it, other than the fact this isn't how it shows up for my iPod Nano, and I believe it's not syncing correctly. It charges fine, by the way, while plugged in.

iTunes still shows my iPod Touch attached, I can see all the files and music on it, but it won't sync or transfer any new files.

I'd like to get this working properly. Any suggestions?

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

Hello.
I am quite new here, but I've been wanting to get this problem solved for a long time, and I haven't seemed to get any answer.

So here's my problem:

I bought my Asus N53SV for around a year ago, and it worked great. But for some reason something changed.
When I try to open bluetooth, nothing happens. And when I want to connect anything using bluetooth, it doesn't work.

I tried to do this:
[windows] + r >bttray
But nothing opens up.

Please help!

Thank you,

Hi Karstin,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

You would need to re-install Bluetooth software/driver for your system. Please check the link below for finding out the drivers:

Have a friend with a relatively new Lenovo laptop using Windows XP SP3. Overnight he can't access the Internet via browsers, email or AIM. His desktop connected to the same router is working fine.

He can access the router by IP address using either IE7 or FireFox 3.5. Anything that needs a DNS server doesn't work. This does say though that he has a working connection to the router.

He's run MalWareBytes and his own McAffee software looking for bad stuff but has found nothing.

Running "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt gives exactly the same results for the laptop as his working desktop. The DNS servers are there. He can ping the DNS servers using their IP addresses. He is being assigned a proper local network address so DHCP is working on the router.

Any thoughts on where to look next to discover why the Internet applications don't seem to be able to find the DNS servers?

A:Can't Access Websites, Email doesn't work and no AIM doesn

FWIW, my friend took his laptop to a PC shop. Their diagnosis was malware. I don't know the identity of the malware. Anyway, the shop saved his data then formatted and reloaded XP SP3.

I purchased a new HP Envy with windows 8.1.64 and a Pavilion 23tm monitor.  I have installed the drivers for the monitor but the monitor still will not respond to touch.  I went online and downloaded the drivers off the HP website just in case they were more up to date than what came with the monitor.  But it still is not working as a touchscreen like it's supposed to.  Any ideas?

A:Pavilion 23tm monitor doesn't respond to touch

I just went through two rounds of technicians updating drivers.  Enabling and disabling devices.  Nothing seemed to help.  I notified the techicians I was connected via a HDMI cable.  Windows reported no touch input available on this computer.  In the System Information screen. I suddenly realized, hey, didn't this monitor come with a USB cable?  Plugged it in, and it started working after a re-boot.  Duh.  None of the technicians asked about the usb cable.  They concluded it was a bad monitor.

Hi there, first post so sorry if I haven't followed a protocol at any point.

I'm having a problem with what I believe is a win32/zbot infection, I say that because AVG Free keeps saying that it has detected this virus. I'm getting loads of these messages in waves, with 5-30 per wave regardless of whether I'm connected to the internet or not. As well as these messages other virus have suddenly started popping up as well.

I first knew there was a problem because an internet screen popped up pretending to be a police institution asking for money and I couldn't close it and couldn't open other applications, including task manager. I restarted my computer in safe mode with networking and ran a scan from AVG, which found viruses which I deleted and then I restarted into normal startup mode. Within a minute of loading the desktop the computer blue screen crashed so I restarted and it happened again, and again, but then it started ok and waited a minute before the internet screen popped up again asking for money.

Then I restarted in safe mode and downloaded malwarebytes onto memory stick from another PC and transferred and installed it then ran a scan and deleted a load more files. Now the computer starts up ok and the internet screen doesn't pop up but I keep getting these zbot messages appear from AVG. I've taken the following steps since then:

Run a full scan from malwarebytes in normal startup mode, deleted lots of viruses.

A:Re: Pavilion 23tm monitor doesn't respond to touch

Hi there @jwpeart, May the Forums be with you!  It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel.  I understand that you are trying to get your touch screen to work with your desktop system.  I am happy to help with this. Please post the full product number and operating system in use on your computer. See the following, if you need help with that information. HP Desktop PCs - How Do I Find My Model Number, Serial Number or Product Number?  HP PCs - How to Find the Windows Edition and Version on Your Computer Looking at the HP Pavilion 23tm Touch Monitor - Product Specifications,  you have DVI-D and HDMI inputs available. You would want to be sure that the computer has one of those types available to transmit the required digital information from a screen touch action. A VGA connection is an analog connection and so is not going to work excepting for display purposes. It would not work with the touch screen functions. Please let me know when you can, the model information for the computer and the type of display connections available. If you only have a VGA connection on the computer then you would need to look at possibly installing a different but compatible graphics adapter, that provides a DVI-D or HDMI connection. I hope this helps, and if this does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution.

So my ipod touch does not want to connect to any wifi network that requires a logon page, as in an html web page where you are required to enter details to access a wifi hotspot.

I have one of these at work which I can access for free and it was working fine up until a week ago. Now it wont connect to any internet that requires an html logon page, not just the one at my work.

I should say that it does actually connect to the network it just wont log on to the login page, therefore the ipod assumes that it does not connect to the internet.

It still connects to my home network just fine.

Any ideas?
Cheers
James
 

A:Ipod touch doesn't wanna connect to wifi!!

Nope, because you need to be connected to a network in order to open the page in order to login?

Try connecting to the network, going to the page in Safari manually and login?

Hi... xp stopped responding and I decided to power off.

Was never able to restart after that. Normal boot shows the windows initial screen, but eventually just restarts, safe mode does the same thing whether it's with network, command line or plain safe mode. Last known good configuration does the same.

Needed to use a file so decided to remove the HD and re-install to another PC. I did have access to the file in question but now I'd like to fix the problem.

The other system uses AVG. I started a scan and it detected Cekar.d (A0003977.exe, wdfmgr.exe and initially ntldr.exe), Dropper.Inor (ntdetect.hta, A0003979.hta), PSW.Generic5.ABVW (ctfmona.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.AAFI (ctfmonb.exe), PSW.Generic5.AFYK (ctfmond.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.ZWT (LotusHlp.exe) and some others but for whatever reason the scan stopped. I restarted it and now the AV still finds most of the threats it was seeing before but not Cekar.d. in the ntldr.exe file.

The system that had the problem was running Win XP Home SP1. Unfortunately, I can't find the manufacturer's recovery CD.

HD is still in the other PC. How should I attack the problem?
 

A:XP doesn't reboot, safemode doesn't work

Update... Three passes of AVG and all threats were put in vault. Tried to re-install the HD to the initial system but no change... System says it didn't start correctly, that a new software of hardware could be responsible, the suggests to try las known good config, none of the options work, they all perform some tasks then windows reboots and ends up in the same screen.

My problem is that I cannot access the internet through my LAC. I enable the connection and it will connect and send packets, but will not receive any packets. I have no problems enabling my wireless connection and connecting to the internet. The wireless does like to disconnect and reconnect about 3 or 4 times an hour which is another problem I have. I believe this LAC problem started around the same time I was trying to get shared music between my computers on iTunes. I was trying to allow for connection on port 3689, but everything I did was unsuccessful. Any suggestions for any of these problems I'm having?

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.
 

A:Windows Media Encoder doesn't work at home, does at work

I'm currently having the same problem . I open the .vob file set the output folder , settings etc etc . just as it was about to start converting , WME just stops and crashes . I use windows xp home edition so if your company's xp professional can make it work im thinking it is something in the professional edition which allows it to work not something in our edition that doesnt allow it to work. Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

Hello, I'm using touch enabled hp laptop with hp pen. Yesterday, I downloaded(purchased) Tablet pro app from app store to use tablet function more well. And I tried using it with ZBRUSH (3D sculpting program), but it was not working well. Because I couldn't use alt or ctrl key with tablet pro when I use the pen on the screen.I realized when I use the pen on the screen, touch turns off. It seems that they are not working together. So I tested with touch test app. It recognized two fingers but not with pen !! (embarrasing...) . Some devices with pen has any option like pen only mode or pen and touch together (samsung galaxy note phone...), so I'd like to know if it has that kind option or any other ways do you have? Please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you.
