  1. Hi there A few days ago my Synaptics touchpad started to malfunction and my computer was really laggy.. My main concern was that the touchpad was not doing what it was supposed to; when scrolling it would not release the scroll bar when I let go of the button, it was not selecting the things I clicked on etc.. The left button does not seem to function at all & touchpad seems to behave strangely, most of the time (it won't let me tap to click even though I selected that option in my touchpad settings etc).. I changed the touchpad settings to left-handed which means I can at least browse the net and use Photoshop to a certain degree although it is difficult and I've learnt a hell of a lot of new shortcuts since! Anyway.. It's been like this for about a week now and then today.... I unplugged the charger and the machine went dead even though it had been charging for plenty of time... Plugged it back in checked the lead connection etc not that.... Now it just says 8% available & charging constantly, it obviously is NOT charging and even after being plugged in for hours still turns off every time I unplug it!?!? My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6-6b50sa which, after reading about it online, seems to have a heapload of issues and one of the most common ones seems to be overheating.. Do you guys think that might be what the problem is?? It just seems like my machine is falling apart piece by piece!!! :'( I started looking for solutions in the "general pc help forum" and after my dds logs were looked at was told to start a new post here.. (You can find the original post http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=132832 there's a bit more detail and a lot more rambling there)... Thanks in advance to anyone who can help, you will never know how much I appreciate it! xxx Attach2.txt DDS1.txt
  2. Aha! I wrote that reply before I read yours oops! Thank you so much for your help Ron! You are a hidden hero! Keep up the great work xXx
  3. Some additional info on my machine: I've been running my pc without any AV software for about the last 6 months... All I have been using is Windows Firewall and Spybot (I did this because I found AVG seemed to be causing my pc a lot of issues and just generally slowing it down).. I know the internet pretty well and don't visit sites I consider to be a threat (I only really visit the usual social networks, my portfolio site & online news & magazines) so I decided to do away with it.. Anyway today I decided to D.L & re-install AVG - 4 mid-level threats (ad-ware) were found and dealt with, that was all... I also read the "Slow PC? - Start here" thread by exile and did everything listed there apart from configure system restore & run chkdsk (only because it is currently completing the recommended batch file defrag... This seems to have made my pc run slightly smoother than earlier today but has not rectified the situation. Also, as far as I'm aware, the machine has no unnecessary or untrusted software installed on it.. No games etc, just Photoshop, Skype, Chrome etc x
  4. Thanks so much for the quick reply Ron, I really appreciate it! You have lightened my heart just by replying to my post! Please find attached the dds files.. I hope I did it all properly as instructed Mariam x DDS1.txt Attach2.txt
  5. Hi there A few days ago my Synaptics touchpad started to malfunction and my computer was really laggy, for example when hovering over links or things in my toolbar it would not highlight the item for a while til it seemed the pc was ready... My main concern was that the touchpad was not doing what it was supposed to; when scrolling it would not release the scroll bar when I let go of the button, it was not selecting the things I clicked on etc.. After looking at advice online I found a lot of other people seemed to be having the same problem with Synaptics touchpads.. As recommended by others I changed the settings to left-handed which means I can at least browse the net and I can use Photoshop to a certain degree although it is difficult and I've learnt a hell of a lot of new shortcuts since! I think that it is the left button which has stopped working however the touchpad seems to behave strangely, most of the time (it won't let me tap to click even though I selected that option in my touchpad settings etc) Ok so anyway I have been struggling along with the ridiculousness that is my touchpad for about a week now.... Until today, I unplugged my charger and my laptop went dead... Checked the lead connection etc not that.... Now it just says 8% available & charging constantly, it obviously is NOT charging and even after being plugged in for hours still turns off every time I unplug it!?!? My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6-6b50sa which, after reading about it online, seems to have a heapload of issues and one of the most common ones seems to be overheating.. Do you guys think that might be what the problem is?? It just seems like my machine is falling apart piece by piece!!! :'( I'm sorry for the long rambling post! I really appreciate any help people can offer! I'm a poor & struggling artist & if I lose my laptop I will be devastated (really can't afford another one!!) :'( Terrified right now!
