Synaptics Touchpad Conflict With Microsoft Mouse


I am having a problem with win 7 and an apparent conflict with the synaptics touchpad. I have a microsoft mouse working so i can use the laptop, but the touchpad won't work. I have tried just about everything from uninstalling both the touchpad and the mouse to a clean install of windows. I have narrowed it down (after several clean installs) to what seems to be a conflict with outlook connector. After the clean install the touchpad has resumed working and then i had to reload all of my programming which is a real pain.

The touch pad seemed to stop working after i downloaded and installed the outlook connector to allow mapi connection to my msn.com emails. I can not keep up the clean install process (done at least 3 times). I have downloaded the synaptics driver direct from the company without a fix. Gateway says keep doing a clean install which is ludicrous. The touchpad driver says it is working properly with no conflicts even though it does not work. I believe that this is a windows 7 problem. Any further ideas would be appreciated. By the way once the synaptics touchpad stops working nothing short of a clean install will fix the problem, so i have a choice no outlook or no touchpad.

How To Disable Mouse Touchpad On Dell Laptop ?

I have a dell vostro 1500 laptop. When i opted for the yahoo task bar, i was pushed into yahoo 8. I wasn't happy, so i switched back to yahoo 7. Since then both my mouse pad and the hand mouse have been on simultaneously. When i go to the control panel and click on 'mouse", i receive the message that it can't open the synaptic pointer device. What is that? How do i get to it? I just want to turn off the mouse pad and stop my cursor from jumping around the screen. Does anybody know about this and can help?

Win 7 Install Mouse Driver Instead Of Touchpad Driver

I did a clean 32 bit upgrade on my sony notebook vaio vgn-nr160e. I need an alps pointing device driver. I did download the original vista alps pointing device (touchpad) driver from the sony web site; however, windows 7 flashed a driver problem message when i tried to installed this original vista driver. Where does a windows 7 touchpad driver exist for my notebook?

Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse Macros

I have a sidewinder mouse, and sometimes, mid-game, a macro will be recorded, and somehow assigned to my right mouse button. As far as i can tell i'm not hitting the macro record button once (let alone twice, so it stops recording), and i'm definitely not going into the mouse properties and assigning that macro to the right button. Can someone tell me how this is happening, since it's getting really annoying, and sometimes very frustrating to fix? I believe it's the sidewinder x6, it's wired, with the adjustable weights and led.

Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse Freezes

I am using a microsoft sidewinder mouse and have encountered a strange problem. Occasionally the mouse will stop working and the usb device unplugged sound will play. This happens most frequently when gaming, but also it occurs during general use. Normally the mouse freezes for about 2-5 seconds, and up to, but never longer than, 10 seconds. The sidewinder has decorative lights, and these stay on most of the time, but during some of the longer freezes they will turn off.

The buttons do not work when the mouse is frozen. The strange thing is that the usb unplugged device sound plays, leading me to think this may be a defective mouse, however i cannot replicate the problem by pushing/pulling/wiggling the mouse's cable. Normally hardware problems can be replicated. The mouse worked fine for the preceding 9-10 months. Drivers are the latest version (7) and i have reinstalled them several times. Usb connectors are spotless. Other mice work flawlessly, but i do not have a second pc to test if the mouse works on a different machine.

Problem With Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse

I'm running windows 7 64-bit pro on a sony vaio f series laptop with a microsoft 5000 bluetooth notebook mouse. Or at least i was. Right after i got the mouse i began having intermittent disconnect problems with it. It would stop working, i would disable it, re-connect it via the bluetooth interface, and we'd be fine for a day or two, then it would stop working again. Sony tech support was no help, suggested i contact microsoft since the mouse was new.microsoft remote-d into my machine but couldn't diagnose the cause, so they sent me a new mouse. That arrived last week, and worked fine for about six days, until this evening, when it totally quit.

I have tried the disconnect - reconnect again, changed the batteries, the bluetooth interface indicates it is there, but it doesn't move the cursor at all. Tried hooking up mouse number one, but same result nothing happening. Any know issues here or any suggestions? I have a webinar presentation coming up wednesday evening and really need the mouse for that.

Bsod With Microsoft Wireless Mouse 6000

Microsoft wireless mouse 6000 v2. 0 and keyboard 6000 v3. 0. Every time i start up my windows 7 desktop from shutdown or sleep, about 10 minutes in i get the bsod. It usually happens right about when my wireless keyboard and mouse starts lagging. This also happens when i change usb ports for the wireless transceiver.

After a restart, everything works fine. I did troubleshoot on devices and printers and i also did update drivers. Yet the problem still persists. This is a new windows 7 desktop. The wireless keyboard, mouse, transceiver worked fine with my vista laptop. I am getting concerned and frustrated at this problem. I have attached a photo of the bsod at this link .

Microsoft Mobile Mouse 4000 Issue

I recently upgraded to windows 7 professional x64. I am using the latest intellipoint software (driver version 7. 10. 344. 0) and a wireless mobile mouse 4000. The scrolling in outlook calendars is extremely fast, no matter what i set the scroll setting to, even all the way to slowest. It appears to be about 4x the speed of a plug in generic brand usb mouse. It works just fine in ie8 and pdf files, but the scrolling acceleration does not seem to do anything at all even set all the way to the right. I primarily use this computer for cad and cam software and the scrolling in solidworks 2010 is so fast i am not able to use this mouse effectively.
 
Again it appears to be 4x as fast as the generic mouse. The second and most important problem is the very noticeable delay when clicking the middle mouse button, this is not a slight delay it is
About . 5 seconds. This is the primary button for rotating 3d models and at this point i have reverted to a $10 generic mouse to temporarily get the job done. Using mousinfo.exe you can see the delay when clicking the middle mouse button and no delay on the left or right mouse clicks. Keep in mind this hardware worked just fine in xp.

Using mousinfo.exe the "last z value" comes back +30 -30 with the mobile mouse 4000. On the generic mouse it comes back +120 -120 and there is zero delay on middle mouse button. I have reviewed and tried the following troubleshooting procedure from microsoft and i am still not able to resolve the problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/303091

Microsoft Usb Mouse Freezes After Sleep

I've turned off power save on *all* usb ports+hubs+devices. The only way i can remedy the problem is to unplug the mouse from the usb port and plug it back in. The system reports reloading the driver and the mouse works until the next incidence of sleep. Mouse driver dated 6/21/2006, version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 is shown by system to the the most current. I appreciate the power saving, but i really shouldn't have to do this each time. Any help?

How To Remove Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Detection Driver ?

Ok i have a common problem with booting my pc under windows 7 64bit. It was all fine booting rapidly for the last month or so that i've had it installed. Then it started to freeze for several minutes (anything between 5 mins and about 10 mins) during boot time at the loading windows screen.

I have since then tried the various things to get it to boot normally again, including tings which should theoretically not affect it as they've all been there before this problem started and booting fine, this includes:

Looking at recent hardware changes such as hd's i've added. Changing the sata drives about (i've got 3) getting boot under msconfig to use the max cores (it's a quad core) & memory (4gb). Looking at the bootlog files (nothing leaps out other than i'm apparently trying to load a couple of the drivers twice - i've listed this mornings bootlog at the bottom of this message for reference). Recovering to a point about a month ago before the problems started in the hope that this will uninstall newer drivers that might be the problem, and this is where i noticed what i think might be the cause as this seems like the point it went wrong.

I had added a microsoft mouse and keyboard and the wu offered an optional update of:

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

After installing this i'm pretty certain that the boot slowed right down, so i've tried to uninstall it. Only i can't find a way of doing so. As when i do a system restore to a point prior to the driver installing and the problem occurring, it does not ditch the driver, just seems to keep it. I then uninstalled intellipoint for mouse and keyboard and re-installed standard ps2 mouse. At the same time i removed my microsoft wireless usb keyboard & mouse, all with no effect. I restored my system back to current again and i'm coming back to what i think the problem is which is the.

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

But with no obvious way or removing it, i can't confirm that. Other notable points: during the boot the hd access is constant so it's working like crazy. The keyboard will be unresponsive to things like capslock or numlock though for the first half of the wait the numlock light is on and for the second half of the wait the numlock light is off. I think my default setting is for numlock off.

Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 Issue

I have a microsoft wireless laser mouse 8000. It was made in march 2007, i got it in around 2008 and have been using it every day. Recently it doesn't work much anymore. It will just stop working and putting in a new battery sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Most of the time, even after a new battery has been inserted. I will turn it on, it either will do nothing, or glow green for a few sometimes work sometimes not.

Is it dead and should i have to get a new one? I recently picked up a pack of 8 rechargeable batteries, with a charger.

Charging Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000

I recently bought the microsoft mobile memory mouse 8000. Fantastic product. I love it and use it every single day. I don't know how i managed without it. My question is regarding charging via usb. I understand i connect the mouse using the usb trans-receiver and the magnetic cord. This charges the mouse just fine and i can see the battery light pulsating green. My question is, how do i know when the mouse is fully charged? Will the led light stop pulsating?

How To Disable Back Button On Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse 5000?

How can i disable the back button on my microsoft bluetooth mouse 5000? I have the microsoft bluetooth mouse 5000. It works great and i love how much longer the battery life is with bluetooth over other usb wireless mice. One issue that i am having is that i keep accidentally hitting the back button unintentionally. This happens often when i am filling out long forms on websites, and i lose all the information i have already typed when i hit this button.

I have tried the intellipoint software, and there is no entry for the "bluetooth mouse 5000. " I have tried selecting other models, but there are none that work exactly right without causing some other undesired side effect. Is it even possible to disable the back button on this mouse? Is there any chance microsoft would ever develop drivers to include in the intellipoint package?

Microsoft Intellipoint 7.0 Mouse Scroll Wheel Does Not Scroll

Microsoft intellipoint 7. 0 (wireless optical mouse 2. 0) scroll wheel does not scroll (very slowly or not at all) in yahoo mail in google chrome, internet explorer or firefox on windows 7. When i am in the list of messages in yahoo' new mail, the scroll wheel does not properly scroll through the messages. It barely moves at all (maybe one line with five scrolls). Scrolling seems to work fine in all other parts of the browser. I have this same problem in chrome 4. 0. 288. 1dev and firefox 3. 5. 7, and ie 8.

I have checked the scroll settings and tried selecting the highest scroll rate and the advanced setting to increase speed when scrolling faster. This has not changed the performance at all.
This problem is new since upgrading from xp to windows 7 ultimate and reinstalling the mouse driver.
I have another laptop, no external mouse or keyboard, windows 7, and there is no problem with the scrolling (using it's touchpad, so i assume it has something to do with the intellipoint software.

Touchpad Settings Problem

I recently bought my hp pavilion dm3-1030us and installed win7 professional. When i started, i could access my touch pad settings via the control panel (under devices and sound) by clicking on "mouse". In order to have a real mouse as well as a touch pad, i plugged in a usb mouse, which installed itself (as would be expected). However, the problem is that now the only mouse settings i can find are the ones for the installed usb mouse. I really want to change the settings on my touch pad so that it's less jumpy and doesn't "tap-click" while i'm typing.

Touchpad Keys Do Not Work When Pc Waking Up From Sleeping Mode

The keys (including touchpad) of the hp notebook with windows 7 do not work when pc waking up from the "sleeping mode". If you plug in the external mouse in the usb port, cursor moves.

1 - keys of the pc ( including the touchpad) stop responding when notebook wakes up from any mode. If you just connect external mouse, the cursor start moving again over the screen. The problem disappears after the pc is switched off and then switched on i.e. After reloading the windows 7 operating system.

2 - this problem exists from the day one when the operating system was installed.

3 - internal win7 diagnostic system doesn't show, as far as i understand, any missing driver.

Please explain the reason and the detailed algorithm to fix this problem.

Dell Studio 1749 Touchpad Scrolling Problem

Recently my laptop, dell studio 1749 lost it's proper ip address for wireless. I couldn't get a resolution to the problem by working with the router support people or internet provider people (should called dell). But i did get help from someone much more computer savy than me who fixed it by reinstalling, i guess pretty much everything. The computer really works fine now, with wireless connectivity, the only thing i no longer have is the capability of using the touchpad to swipe to scroll instead of using the scrollbar. How do i get that back? Windows 7 home premium. Is it a driver that didn't get reinstalled? How do i do that?  Should i try it myself if that's the case?

Issue: Sony Vaio Laptop Keyboard And Touchpad Stopped Working

I have a sony vaio vgn-nw270f that came with windows 7 already installed. After booting up, the touchpad and keyboard stopped working. The keyboard works in the bios but only then. I can use the pointer with a usb mouse and type using the on-screen keyboard but that's about it. Everything else works normally. I spoke with sony tech support and they recommended i restore my machine to it's original factory state but i would definitely rather not do that.

Ati Drivers Conflict

I upgraded from xp x32 to windows 7 x64. I performed a clean install of xp and immediately installed win7. After the first reboot in the setup the image on my monitor became garbled just after windows loaded. First, i restarted into safe mode but got a message that the installation was not complete and could only be completed in normal mode. I found that after windows loaded i could type my user name and press enter repeatedly to complete the installation although i still couldn't see what was happening.

After the installation completed i went into safe mode which gave me a clear picture. If i disabled the display adapter in safe mode i could boot into normal mode with a clear picture, but windows 7 would then install drivers which caused the image to become corrupted upon reboot. During one boot into normal mode the device manager gave me a code 19 for my video card:"windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged.

I've tried 2 clean installs, 3 driver versions, and a different monitor. The other monitor just gives a black screen where my main monitor gives a garbled image. I've used driver sweeper and the control panel to uninstall the video drivers, and i've installed new drivers from downloaded .exe's and by letting windows find them. This computer was working perfectly fine one day ago with windows 7 rc x64.

Keyboard & Mousepad Conflict

I have recently installed windows 7 pro (64-bit) over my last os - windows 7 ultimate candidate (32-bit). Before hand, i had no problems with my keyboard and mouse-pad. Now, i can't move my mouse while i press a key on the keyboard (letters, space bar, numbers, etc). The mouse pointer just stays in place while a key is pressed, and even after i let go it takes a second for the mouse to move again. This is especially annoying when i'm trying to use keyboard shortcuts on photoshop.
I am not using any new programs.

Conflict Between Usb Devices

I have windows 7 ultimate x64.couple days ago i bought apc smart ups 500va that has a usb connection to the pc to enable a soft shut down. I have installed the latest win 7 drivers from apc. I also have microsoft wireless multimedia keyboard 1. 1 and microsoft wireless optical mouse 2000. Once i installed the ups (it's using one of the usb ports), every time i reboot, the keyboard and mouse freeze and i can't fix that until i plug the ups out of the usb and reboot. Once i am in windows, i can plug the ups back in and it works perfectly. Re-installing drivers, removing devices and other usual tricks have not hepled. How can i get around this problem without replacing the hardware?

Installer Language Conflict

Just moved up to 64 bits windows 7. I have the dutch language version. I am trying to install msxml2 sp2 (msxml. Msi). One can choose from a number of languages, but not dutch, so i choose english (which is what i always did previously, and without problems). As soon as i click on install, my computer freezes up, and the only option is to turn off the power switch.

I have noticed that with other programmes (for example abbyy fine reader 9. 0) where one can choose the language (including dutch), the same thing happens if i choose a language other that dutch (fair enough), but surely we are allowed to use the msxml package? Any suggestions?Ideas:programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem.

Conflict Using Hauppauge And Nvidia

I recently installed hauppauge hvr in my new computer which uses a nvidia graphics card. Everything seems to work except the video input (using s-video) from a digital video camera (mounted on a microscope). The picture trough my win tv 7 is split, with the bottom half at the top of the screen and the top half at the bottom, separated by 3 colour bars across the screen. The picture is otherwise in black and white but should be in coulour. A second feed going directly to a tv is fine. Everything works as it should using usb live and windows xp. I am using windows 7 ultimate. We really need this to work as our business depends on it.

Wireless Problem Ip Conflict

I have a lap top ( gateway - windows7 ) and i connect to the internet via wireless. The problem is that the connection is really unstable, it drops like every single minute!

A message popped up saying that this computer has an ip conflict, that it has the same ip as another computer. Maybe that's the problem?

This connection is really driving me crazy, can someone help me out? The funny thing is that if i connect to others wireless connections, like in school for example, it works without any problem, without a single drop!
