Hardware Drivers :: Mouse Won't Work Now Touchscreen Won't Work
Feb 18, 2014
Windows update has been really messing with my pc lately. I ran update and when it installed the updates my integrated mouse ended up not working. I rolled back update and installed the updates one by one and the one I ended up not installing was the camera codec pack. Now the problem I am having is that my touchscreen won't work. If I talk to HP support they do the most basic thing they can and then when they can't fix it they tell me that I have to ship it to them because hardware is broken.
Ssince updating windows to windows 8.1.1 my alienware tact x mouse keep lagging on me from time to time, i checked in device manager and everything says its working properly, but it will lag out on me for a few seconds and then work just fine. What could be doing this i did not have any issue before the update.
I'm running Windows 8.1, and never had problems with my wireless mouse ad keyboard. But my keyboard has a real problem, and I tried with a normal PS2 keyoard. But it wasn't recognized. I read, that when we use a USB mouse or keyboard, the PS2 is disabled. I tried the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIE/CurrentControlSet/i8042prt and edited the value of "START" from 3 to 1.
But it didn't work. Is there another way to enable PS2 keyboards again?
I am having a strange problem on Windows 8 as of late. Just in the middle of work the mouse pointer freezes in its tracks and there is nothing doing, but to restart. And then all goes on well as if nothing' happened. Today, I had the same problem, but this time the the mouse seems to revive after a minute so and after a while it again freezes up.
I looked it up in the Event Manager and find a constant error which seems to have been going on for sometime. The error is always Event ID: 16385
I wonder if the error has anything to do with the mouse freezing up the works or is it unrelated. The mouse battery is fully charged and the drivers are are the latest (according to Microsoft) and the manufacturer says this is only version, therefore neither of these can be the problem.
OS: Windows 8 Mouse and Keyboard Set: SilverCrest (wireless)
The task manager was showing processing was a little high so I ended tasks I thought shouldn't be running like the store and then I ended what i thought was internet explorer, but it was windows explorer and it black screened and when I restarted it the mouse stopped working and I kept trying to do stuff i thought would work and restarting and then the keyboard also stopped working.
I have an Acer Aspire M computer with a touch screen that runs Windows 8.1. I was having issues with the touch screen, so I went to download the drivers from the Acer website. However, when I restarted my computer to complete the installation, it wouldn't allow me to use either the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard.
Normally, after loading, a personalized picture will appear on the screen, displaying the time, connectibility, and strength of the network. The user is then supposed to swipe up, click on, or press space to move the picture, at which point the login screen appears. My computer loads normally when starting, but won't allow me to use the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard to move the picture out of the way, so I cannot access the login screen.
I have already contacted the Acer company support and attempted to use the battery reset pinhole, but to no avail. Is there anything I can do, besides a factory reset or using it as a cat bed?
Trying to find out before I start whether the printer above is supported in Windows 8/64 - All Epson says where there is no specific driver update, that it "might" be supported out of the box. if MS (or printer manufacturers) actually listed what printers/scanners are supported in Windows 8/64. know if the DX7400 will work in Windows 8/64?
So the initial user is the one you are forced to create when first setting up Windows 8.1. It's a local user meaning that I set it up without signing into a MSA.
In both the Administrator and the initial user, all the WinRT apps/tiles work. Like the weather will show up and everything.
Whether I change the Initial User to Standard or Administrator, everything still works fine. Of course, the Administrator can't open WinRT apps which is standard and normal. And the initial user can't use apps without signing into MSA. But it all still works perfectly fine.
The problem is with the new user. The new user is meant to be in Administrator mode because it's my main account. But whether I set it up as Standard or Administrator, it's the same thing. None of my WinRT apps work.
Even when I sign into my MSA with the new user, it's still the same thing. It synchronizes to my OneDrive online. It recognizes that I'm completely signed in online. Yet it's still the exact same thing with the WinRT apps. None of them work. Even when I try to open up the Windows Store. It just continues to try to open, but doesn't go all the way through. So whether I'm signed into my MSA for the third user or not, it still gives the same problem.
I ran Windows Update, and it worked perfectly. Everything is up to date.
How can I modify an Windows 8.1 ISO so it can work with a non-supported CPU? I would like to make it work with a Pentium 4 2.8Ghz HT Northwood CPU. Rest of specs; 2GB RAM, ATI 4650 DDR3 1GB, 250GB HDD. Computer is a SONY VAIO PCV-RS430G. I updated its BIOS to latest which dates back to 2004 but did not add the NX/PAE that is needed for Win 8.1
Ever since switching to AHCI mode, I've noticed that my keyboard has issues with the volume wheel not working properly. Also after setting up the LED lighting on the keyboard and a few restarts later, I've notice that when restarting my system the keyboard LED, blue in this case, will automatically show up and when it does, and I use the del key to get into BIOS doesn't work. I have to move the the usb connection to a different port, restart and keyboard LED will be white. This time using the del key, I can get into my BIOS no problem. This never happened when I was using native IDE mode.
I'm using Win 8 on my laptop Lenovo G580. I have some problems with it. When I restart my laptop it takes too much time to restart and sometimes all USB ports doesn't work properly, means it shows Modem, USB Mouse, Pen drive connected but doesn't work. Here is the link of Dump file on Skydrive..
I have a problem with my usb root hub after i installed Win 8 from Win7. Only my USB 3.0 don't work anymore... I installed new driver, it detect my WD passport then 2 sec after, nothing anymore and error 19, uninstall then reinstall nothing happen.
A couple of weeks ago, I cloned my HDD C drive to a new 250GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD.
After fitting the SSD in place of the old HDD, the system rebooted fine and worked well with a very noticeable increase in the speed at which Windows loaded.
However, Samsung's "Magician" software informed me that the drive was running in SATA mode and that better performance would be obtained by switching the Storage Configuration parameter to AHCI mode in the BIOS on my ASUS P7P55D Pro motherboard.
So, I tried this but Windows would not load. I didn't get a BSOD as such... I'd get the Windows 8 start-up logo with the spinning dots below for a while, then the screen would go blank, then a message would flash briefly on the screen saying something along the lines of "Windows has experienced a problem and was unable to start so your computer is being restarted" (not exact words as it's not on screen long enough for me to read) and my computer reboots. This startup/error/reboot loop is repeated until I enter the BIOS and switch Storage Configuration back to IDE whereupon all is back to normal.
Further research then revealed that I needed to tweak the registry so I did this but I still get the startup/error/reboot loop.
Next I tried booting into SAFE mode as described in this thread. It'll boot fine if I leave Storage Configuration set to IDE but not if I change it to AHCI. It just goes back to the same old startup/error/reboot loop and Windows makes no attempt to install any new drivers.
I know I could do a clean install of Windows but I don't really want to go down that route if I can possibly avoid it.
I strongly suspect that the motherboard's Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series SATA AHCI/RAID Controller does not have the right driver installed that would enable AHCI mode to work. Is there a way that I can force installation of an updated driver? Is there such a thing (device manager tells me the latest driver is installed)?
I can live with IDE mode as the computer boots considerably faster from the SSD and programs load much quicker too but not being able to use AHCI mode is bugging
I have a friend who has an HP Pavilion G6 running a 64-bit edition of Windows 8.
He brought the laptop to me telling me he had issues connecting to wifi networks. I did the normal check to see if the PC was detecting the Wifi Adapter itself by going to Device Manager > Network Adapters ..only for me to get there and find out there were no Wifi network adapters, only a "Realtek Ethernet Controller". I checked HP's website for the laptop's model's wifi driver, downloaded and installed it and got a prompt that the driver wasn't installed correctly.
The F12 key that's supposed to turn the wifi adpater on didn't do anything. I decided to do a system restore to the last time my friend told me it was working and yet nothing.
I'm guessing its a hardware related issue and I might have to open up the network adapter compartment of the laptop and place the adapter properly. I'm so confused right now.
Today I just found my 2 ram modules hidden in my drawers, since these 2 are the same as the 2 I am using along with 2 other modules, I decided to install the 4 identical ram modules(GEIL 1D DDR2 800mhz). Initially, I had 2 ramaxel 1g 667mhz and 2 GEIL 1G DDR2 800mhz. When I did this, there were several beeps, I couldn't define how many because the beeps sounded weird and not in sequence. Some pauses were longer than the other. When I hear it longer, I think it's 2 or 3 beeps. I have never seen any problems with installing identical rams as its the optimal thing to do and most users do it. Here's my computer manual [URL] .....
I reinstalled my 8.1 pro (legal copy, disk been fully formatted) and it was okay for few hours. Next time im starting the laptop, my keyboard and touchpad doesnt work. I plugged USB mouse and keyboard and it works just fine. I went to device manager and besides Standart PS/2 keyboard and mouse icons there was orange triangle meaning that i have problem with drivers. I searched drivers online, but unsuccsessily.. After few hours of trying to fix it, my Standart PS/2 Keyboard turned into Unknown device and now im completely lost. Adding photo of device manager
I have Acer Aspire v5-571G and the Acer Launch Manager, does not start in my windows8.1. it just stays there, does not apear on screen or what so ever, its really hard to turn of wifi and bluetooth without it.
I am running Win 8.1 Pro x64. Today I noticed that the "Eject" option from the right-click menu doesn't work for either of my 2 CD-Rom drives, nor for a "virtual" drive - I get the same error message on all 3: "An error occured while ejecting [drive]".
Device Manager shows no errors, and I've tried uninstalling the drives and rebooting, but error persists.
Also, to be clear, it is NOT a physical problem with the drives, as I can open them without a problem through the buttons on the front.
Finally, if for some reason I can't fix this issue, any way to at least just DELETE the "Eject" from the context menu?
Trying to connect an Android tablet and this error and troubleshooting suggestions are being displayed by Devices and Printers: "Google Nexus ADB Interface can't work properly with USB 3.0"
"If the USB 2.0 device is incompatible with USB 3.0, plugging it into a USB 2.0 port can solve the problem."
I've tried 4 cables (not that it proves anything) They are all USB 2.0 to micro USB. I know where the USB 2 ports are on my m/b and I've tried all 4 (there is no USB hub involved). The m/b is an Asus Z87-Pro and all the latest patches have been applied.
I am trying to load Lexmark 5470 printer and get "enable bidirectional communication" error message. I am trying to load it on a brand new Toshiba laptop running 8.1 Suggested fix is to go to "ports" tab in the printer dialog box and enable it. I can't find the enable box to click. Any thoughts on resolving this issue. Both Lexmark and Microsoft won't talk to me w/o a credit card. The ptr is 5 years old and is not worthy of any significant investment, although it did work well.
After last "patch-tuesday" my Windows 8.1 don't assign drive letters to hotswaped HDD's and USB keys.
When starting my backupdrive (eSATA), it is now without a drive letter, I can give it one though in disk-management, but before last tuesday, it was given a letter automatic. Same problem when I connect an USB-HDD or an USB-stick.
Is there a way to get back "autoassign of a drive letter"? (don't know the correct word for this function in English).
Originally came with windows vista 32-bit, so recently I upgraded to windows 8.1 32 bit after about a month the track pad and keyboard BOTH came un-responsive, and in the device manager, it's coming up with a "COPROCESSOR" error.
I'm using windows 8 pro which I upgraded from windows 7 home premium in january. After the upgrade, my e key stopped working. After another few months, more keys stopped working and now, no keys are working. What do I do?
