Answers :

Had same problem ,mouse constantly drifted even when connecting ext mouse\\tried everything to solve.

Found solution in removing keyboard , the plastic strip at top of keyboard lifts to reveal 2 screws .remove these plus a central screw on the base of the laptop. Carefully lift keyboard and the thin flat keyboard cable slides into a connector on the motherboard.The two small black bits at side of connector push towards screen to release the cable.

I then put some thin tape over the first four connections(at left hand side of cable looking at laptop front view) on this cable. The connections stand out ,i think the cable was a different shade for these four connectors.

. These control the accupoint stick on the keyboard. They could also be carefully cut out. replace keyboard making sure to clip the keyboard cable in.
I can now use an external mouse without any drifting of the pointer ,only drawback is the accupoint stick does not work at all.

The USB and ps/2 ports are not working on power up. the keyboard and mouse are not recognized on boot up. The PC boots as normal to the desktop with no problems. All was working fine until i started messing around with a sound blaster card and upon turn off one time the above fail happened. Now when i switch on the PC I can hear a beeping noise which I'm guessing is a fail code or something. I'm guessing it's a bios fail but if I'm unable to use keyboard or mouse i cant really do anything..bios

Hi, I got a serious problem with my PC. The PC was working as "normal", but the monitor display was not "perfect" :-). So I went to control panel->display->setting->advanced->monitor. I cannot remember what exactly I have done, maybe I disabled the only monitor, which is the "default monitor". Then the computer automatically re-started. When the window come-up, there is no display on the screen. I think the computer was started correctly, but just no display. By now every time when the computer

Elimnate mouse In my HP Pavilion 1000 Notebook, there is a little "pad" used instead of a mouse. 1. How is it called, both in english and spanish? (If I knew the names, maybe I could find some information on it.) 2. This pad can be used as a click. I would like to disable the click, (not the "pad"), because I often, accidentally, "enter" when I don't want to; when all I want to do is move the cursor. How do I disable it, and still keep using the pad as a mouse? Deeply greatful, thank you, Elizab
