[nvda] Re: Problems with NVDA and HP laptop


the mousepad software can be disabled ... not uninstalled though it seems to be necessary and will just show up in the important updates again

Some people find the  mouspad software  is a pain on some machines as it can
respond to a double brush with a wrist and move the focus all over the
place.

Well I can't complain for manufacturers keeping prices rediculously low, on my toshiba except for about 6 programs, including fingerprint scanners, diag programs config tools and a couple other things most of it is good. Dell needs its junk loaded just so its drivers work right, though it seems to be able to back its own drivers somehow once loaded so if they ever corrupt they auto restore. Hp though has games which you don't need, cd and dvd writing software which slow the system down, customer support software and update software which could be usefull maybe, and a system health system which may or may not be usefull so I made it die.

Yes most off the peg computers come with crapware as they get money for including it, keeping the profits up and hopefully the prices lower as well. The very first thing to do is see what is on a new machine that you never ever wont to use, and remove it and make sure the system still functions OK.

I suggest you back up all your files, then use the recovery procedure to reformat the box.
you can defrag, check the disk to and do the sfc from the os.
Hp seems to load a lot of crapware on their boxes, one reason why I won't be setting myself up with one ever. Dell loads crapware but its not to bad, toshiba does to but about 50% is actually usefull if not accessable and whats left can be easily killed.

I bought the laptop from a store with everything already loaded. (Actually, I'm not positive it's Lotus--an equal possibility is HP is blocking the program somehow.) How would I use all of those features- minus disc defragmentor and keeping in mind that right now I donâ?Tt have a backup disk or Windows CD?

well reinstall the hp software and the lotus though I have used and
killed lotus and things work ok.
And then there is sfc /scannow.
And failing that there is your disk image which you shouldn't have
any issue with because  win7 has one.
And then ofcause you could repair windows with the cd, or reinstall
ie from add remove programs, downgrade ie then reinstall it and firefox.
Then there is defragging your hard disk or scanning it with antivirus
and malware software and for disk errors.
I had some issues where things did not work right on another box,
there was some disk error on it.
THe drive needed replacing in the end.

Then there is reformat, though you could always repeat your mistake.
I usually try to kill any extranius software before I really start to
load anything.

Oh forgot to mention ... I did try a systemm restore ... couldn't get beyond the automatic restore point even when I checked show other system restore points. Admittedly though that was the next to last thing I tried--so the point about the users who forget its there still stands.

I agree.
Several months ago, an automatic update to something on xp caused a long
delay when open "MyComputer" window.
It would hang for several minutes before the list appears.
Using system restore, to the time before the update occurred, did the
trick.

Everything except the very first thing you should have tried.  Run a
system restore point from before you installed Lotus Symphony.

It's amazing how many computer users don't try System Restore for
various
problems.  I know that the XP version of System Restore didn't work
reliable for many people but the Vista and Windows 7 versions are much
more reliable and powerful.
