HP ENVY notebook - m7-k211dx: Synaptics ClickPad will not be disabled. Reactive after reboot.

Whenever I have disable Synaptics ClickPad using the option 'disable the internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached', it works fine until I restart. When I return in the options, it is still once unchecked. I tried to turn off the drivers, but they are grey, but wan't to avoid this meathod ultimately because it is not ideal for me.

Action taken:

  • Update to the latest drivers.
  • Disable the cache and history cleaning software.
  • Try different USB ports.

(That's fine, but when I restart it unchecks itself)

Thanks, Mike

Mike,

Sorry it took me awhile. I have all the "Nitty Gritty" details if you want, but the "net-net" is the update of this option writes in "HKCU" and there is a "HKLM" in the register which is default location and never changes.

I managed to do that work by changing the corresponding section of HKLM in the registry. It not be "rejected" at each logon as the HKCU section seems to be. The ICON remained "hidden" which is what I wanted to happen with the change below.

Try this and see if it works for you!

1. open Regedit.exe

2. go to the location next to the register:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTPEnh

3. Note the REG_DWORD value named - TrayIcon

4. the numbers of data match this way:

0 x 0000001 (1) DEFAULT = which is the active ICON

0 x 0000011 (17) = animated ICON

0 x 00000021 (33) = disabled ICON

5. change it to what you have been wishing, in my case it was 21 Hex or Dec 33 for DISABLED ICON.

6. exit Registry Editor

7. restart to test or log-off/log-on to test.

NOTE: If REG_DWORD is not here, it is probably safe to add it, but in my case it was already there it was just the value 1 and never changed when I changed the settings. Only the section HKCU did who has always retired at the end of my session when I disconnected or restarted.

Let me know the results! I hope it suits it for you!

    I tried EvevryThing! The "CREATED WITH ADOBE ELEMENTS 9 TRAIL VERSION FIRST" will not stop Displaying, even after I put in the serial number and Regerstered. Also the product does not show under my profile?

    How can I fix it? Nothing in help or on the Site.

    Once you have registered the product, you should not see the banner of 'Trial' on NEW projects. This isn't the case, right? You only see on the project that you created before you register the product, right?

    That said, to remove the banner, go to the folder of directory on your hard drive where your project PREL files are stored and delete the folder called Adobe Premiere elements preview files.

    First will not open my project after that I have record in SpeedGrade via Direct link

    Last night, I installed all the updates of CC, everything went well.

    All day I was doing the color correction in SpeedGrade to PremierePro project via direct link.

    After I finished, I wanted to go back to first to make an export (my manager was waiting for a sample) only, when the first attempted to connect to the project I worked on SpeedGrade, could not open!

    She the Saturn: "this project has been saved in a newer version of Adobe Premiere Pro and cannot be opened in this version.

    Before panic to my Director of waiting, I've saved every look I did in SpeedGrade as an individual LUT I could manually apply in an earlier version of the PremierePro project. But it took a long time and it's may not be a long-term option.

    What can be the problem between saving in SpeedGrade and then back in PremierePro?

    I PremierePro CC 2015 v. 9.02 (6) and CC SpeedGrade 2015 v. 2015.1

    I'm working on MacBook Pro Retina display 15'.

    Simple... you SpeedGrade 2015.1 (9.2) and PrPro 2015.0.1 (9.0.1). They don't 'work' together.

    You must get your PrPro up to 9.1, 2015.1 release. If your desktop application Adobe CC is not show your 'eligible' for the upgrade PrPro, sign out of it, then back in... that often useful. If this isn't the case, you may need to use the soft Cleaner CC Adobe to remove the application from Office CC & then reinstall it and reconnect.

  • ENVY 100 all-in-one: Envy 100 printer all-in-one - will not glossy paper 250 gsm

    Difficulties that the printer will not accept 250 gsm paper past the printhead.

    Followed him orders for cleaning rollers, reset by disconnecting the power and brought etc. cartridges.

    I note others have had the same problem which seems to have been set by a semi of hardware reset. How can I get the required for the semi reset procedure?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the @noxasforums.

    I saw your post about your Envy 100 not pulling by glossy paper 250 gsm and wanted to answer you! I checked the specs for the Envy 100 and as you can see below, the printer should take in if you use a format supported below. Maybe you can try the steps from the link I posted for you. I think the cleaning rollers should help. You can also try to select different types of paper to see if one works better than the other.

    Let me know what happens!

    Tip: Make sure that the printer is plugged directly into a wall jack, avoiding bars power and surge protectors. This ensures that the printer is full on.

  • HP Envy 4500: Mac running El Capitan will not recognize the HP Envy 4500 printer more

    Last week I was able to print to my HP Envy 4500 to my MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, both running El Capitan.  However, when I went to print today, no computer cannot find my printer.

    I tried everything I found on these forums of discussion... the network reset, feeding all turned off, turning off iPv6, etc. anything.

    I have a USB cord used to print today and when I went in the connected USB printer utility, I could select Configure the wireless, but again, make the message: not accessible device.  It notes the wireless network, the settings were downloaded successfully on my device, however, your Mac could not locate the device on the network.   My Mac is both connected to the same wireless network.

  • Firefox will not open at all, after the last update (13.08.2015).

    After the update (40.0.2 @ 13.08.2015) just used Firefox open. The process is visible in the Task Manager, but does nothing. no window. JUST. NOTHING. It works only in safe mode or when ran as administrator. I tried other computers from home too. Same thing.

    How to fix?

    Try a clean reinstall and delete the program folder before Firefox to (re) install a new copy of the current version of Firefox.

    If possible to uninstall your current version of Firefox to clean the Windows registry and settings in the security software.

    • Do NOT remove the "personal data" when you uninstall your current version of Firefox, because this will remove all profile folders and you lose personal data such as bookmarks and passwords including data profiles created by other versions of Firefox.

    Delete the program folder Firefox before installing newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.

    • (32-bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
    • (Windows 64 bit) "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla.

    Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and will not be affected by a uninstall and (re) install, but do NOT delete personal data when you uninstall Firefox which removes all Firefox profile folders and you lose your data.
