Fluff out those System Specs. Here's how: UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS
User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |
Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
to gather info for filling in the blanks.
Do me a favor. Please add the word laptop
to the “system manufacturer” block.
Provide full windows version info, such as provided by Speccy: MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor
Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES
immediate solution is to use a mouse and when you type--do not rest your thumbs, fingers or palms on the touchpad area.
I'm going to go thru the steps of getting to changing some of those touchpad settings using my laptop which is not an HP.
Control Panel | Mouse |
You will see a dialog with 6 tabs.
The tab of greatest interest to you is on the right end and is labeled Device Settings
Next click on the Settings button.
You have now hit the motherlode of touchpad settings.
There is also a possibility that your system is not up to date.
Please use this procedure to make sure that you are current: UPDATING YOUR WIN 7 ASSURE THAT YOU RECEIVE ALL UPDATES WIN |
type WINDOWS UPDATE | ENTER | Change settings (left-hand column) |
checkmark all four of the boxes | OK
Approve any dialog boxes presented. Let Windows install any update features. WIN
is the key with the Microsoft flag on top. INSTALL CRITICAL UPDATES Check for Updates (left-hand column)
Install ALL critical updates.
Restart your computer (even if not prompted)
Repeat this procedure until there are no more critical updates. DO NOT TRUST the “Windows is up to date” in center of dialog. until you see that TWICE IN A ROW!
INSTALL IMPORTANT UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all important updates are installed. INSTALL OPTIONAL UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all optional updates are installed.
Under Optional updates you will be presented with a list of about 34 language updates.
You can hide those updates so that aren't continually notified of those updates. When you click on 34 optional updates are available, then you
a) highlight all of the language updates,
b) right-click anywhere in the highlighted list.
c) click on Hide Updates,
d) OK button. UPDATE GOLDEN RULES
, yes, ALL
This is Win 7 and not Vista or XP (eXPired). UPDATE IS HUNG –TAKING FOREVER
Hung is very doubtful unless you interrupted updates. CTRL + SHIFT + ESC
key combo will pop-up the Task Manager.
Lo and behold, Windows Update is still running!
You hold down the CTRL and SHIFT keys.
While holding them down, tap the ESC key once.
After all of these gyrations, let me know the status.
