    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST How can I disable the touchpad on my laptop?

    Open Control Panel and click the Mouse icon. In there (probably on the Hardware tab) should be a checkbox that disables thd touchpad when an external mouse is plugged in. Sent using Tapatalk

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Stutter Issues when running certain programs

    Some background first. Hard page faults occur because a page of memory (they are 4kB pages) that has been referenced by a process isn't in RAM, it's on the pagefile on disk and so a disk read is required to load it back into RAM. This is a slow process and is generally bad. There are always a...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Roaring noise from my Corsair vs 350 PSU

    How old is the PC? When did the noise start? Is it fan noise or some other kind of noise?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Stutter Issues when running certain programs

    No, there is nothing in that snapshot. What you should be looking at initially are the counters on the section headers. So CPU Usage %, Highest Active Time for disks, %Network Utilisation and Hard Faults/Sec for Memory. With the % usage figures (CPU, Disk and Network) clearly anything close to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Mouse sensitivity issues after windwos update

    Well that eliminates the driver, and you see the same issue on a different mouse too, so that eliminates the mouse itself. You've also done a clean reinstall and a reinstall of a back-level version of Windows and you see the same thing in all cases. The only thing left is you I'm afraid and as...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST [FORUM ONLY COMP] Win a PCSpecialist XXL Mousemat!

    The blackness was total, Colin had never seen it so black. The loss of light struck him like a hammer, he could feel the blackness drawing him in. He struggled to remain calm, breathe he told himself, slowly, evenly...and think. It had all been so normal. He'd written the date and then...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Stutter Issues when running certain programs

    No that's good enough I think. Clearly it's not a RAM issue. I was important to check though. [emoji3] Instead of using Task Manager to check resource utilisation use Resource Monitor. Enter 'resmon' into the Run box. That will give you much more detail. Sent using Tapatalk

    Do you see the same issue both with the Logitech driver and without it (ie. with the basic Windows mouse driver)?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Sleeping/Hibernating causes reboot, + wifi issues.

    Drivers do not need to be kept regularly up to date. Drivers need updating only if you're having problems with the device or if the updated driver contains functionality that you need (that's common with Nvidia graphics drivers), otherwise they are best left well alone. The vendors of driver...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST BSOD when system is under stress

    As mentioned above, use DDU to remove old graphics drivers and then install the latest. Check other drivers too, ANY misbehaving driver can cause that BSOD.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Slow reading disks

    Open the Windows Resource Monitor (enter resmon in the Run box) and expand the Disk section. Click the Response Time header to sort on that column, by default it's descending but each time you click on the header it swaps between ascending and descending, we want descending so that the process...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Sleeping/Hibernating causes reboot, + wifi issues.

    I'd support this too. Driver search and install tools are avoided by the wise. I also agree that if you do continue to get problems you clean install Windows again. Sent using Tapatalk
