So, how do I shut off the track pad on my ASUS X550CA Laptop?

The Track pad on a  laptop is a useful tool,  however, I found out early on,   it got to be more of a nuance when I tried searching for something on the internet.

YouTube, had several people who had different ideas, however since I was working with Windows 8.1 at the time, this being a tablet format nothing worked.

To give you an example,  I would try to type inside the search field, and I would end up with garbage as the text. This would then  delete itself and it got to be so frustrating. I went as far as switching to a large keyboard for a while.  I was at my wits ends and just thought that it was something I was going to have to deal with.

I feel the Lord lead me to the answer when I thought of giving it one last try on the internet. It was like there it was, so I figured well it wasn’t going to be easy, having to go through the Bios, my thinking was why there of all places. So, I gave it a shot and sure enough it was just what I needed. Thank You Lord Jesus.

Today, we are going to be talking on how to fix a cd drive.  It’s one of those problems sitting in the background, not unlike a sleeper-cell. It wasn’t until I purchased An ASUS laptop.  I recently  had popped open my CD Rom, inserted “Passion of the Christ” to begin to watch a great Movie. Closed the tray and waited,  nothing seemed to be happening. This is when you start to wonder  is there something wrong with the computer. I know I could always, pick up a external CD Rom however, this is not the option one would like if they have a laptop. Who wants to carry an external drive around.

custom or Quick: Avoiding problems


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today, we will be talking about how to prevent problems in the future, by doing something simple, it may take a few minutes but, in the long run, it will be well worth it. I run across several computers and they all run into the same problem, be it something they were in a hurry to do, or they didn’t know that there is an alternative, or just didn’t notice. Like for instance do we notice that when you are about to download Adobe, that it includes a free virus Scan from McAfee.

Enhanced by ZemantaThere are many programs out there it is sometimes hard to keep track of them, some them even include toolbars, so where am I going with this? Once a person download a new program, the immediately want to run it sometimes overlooking the obvious, if you do the quick install you will not notice it until your computer starts to act strange. Then there are those that include a toolbar and all of sudden your browser is offering something, that you really didn’t want. By downloading something simple as “SpeedFan” we find we could end up with such programs as Conduit Search, Optimizer Pro, so in order to avoid having these programs installed on our computer, we clicked on decline, now if we didn’t notice that there was a decline button, and just pressed next, we would have these two programs, to not install Optimizer pro, you still have to UN-check the box, then click “Decline”I hope this gave you some insight into what can happen, and if we go slowly and just don’t click with out reading each item, we will solve a lot of problems and headaches in the long run. If you do get into a mess if you download from my blog Malwarebytes, this should take care of all of your problems.
