Fran, you were right on the money. You must have had the same problem too. I do things slowly and cautously. I contacted Compaq (which is HP), and they told me the same thing. So I went to the website and downloaded the drivers and I just installed them in my laptop. So the adjustments are all there now for me to play with.
Thank you.

Gary, you were correct too in your instructions because you already have the drivers in your laptop and since I didn't, I couldn't figure out what was wrong.
I'm a happy camper now thanks too you guys.
Thank you.

Peter

ANOTHER PROBLEM

When I connect a line from my output stereo speaker jack to my mixing board I hear crackling noises. Also I can hear my finger going across the Touch Pad. When I open up my Cakewalk program I get a high pitched sound. When I close Cakewalk the sound goes away.
If I just use my headphones it's fine or listen to the laptop with it's own little speakers none of this happens.
I tried using different wires, different connectors, still the same
When I open Cakewalk without the wire connected it plays fine. I'm probably doing something wrong...at least I hope that's all it is.
Your help is greatly appreciated....again.
Thanks,

Peter

Gary, what scrolling features are you refering to? John C.

John,

What Gary means is, when you click on Mouse in Control Panel, Mouse Properties opens. Then click on Device Settings, then click on Settings. In the next window, on the left, you'll see Virtual Scrolling. Click on that and you'll read about it there.It's pretty good.

Peter and others,

The problem with most laptops is the power supplies, which at best are awful. The solution to eliminating the problems is a ground defeater, which cost under $1. I have recommended this to a number of performers, and every one of them has reported 100 percent success in eliminating the noise problems.

Cheers,

Gary

A three prong adapter..and don't connect the ground...It has worked 100% of the time someone had a problem with noise due to the power supply..I know a lot of people say it;s a NO NO...So far for me ...it's been a GO GO!!


Fifty nine cents....

I went to Home Depot, Office Depot and Radio Shack and no one heard of it. Does it have a different name besides Ground Defeater?
