Errors bugs and fixes
Written by: Gankutsuou - 06:35 Sep-11-2019

I mentioned a few weeks ago how I'd like for GD to have an error and fix guide for various software and hardware issues. The problems and solutions would be gathered from all the users on the site based on personal experience.

Consider this my first contribution.

 

ERROR TOUCH PAD NOT WORKING

Happened on an Acer Nitro laptop. After installing Win 10 noticed the touch pad wasn't operational. Installed all the drivers I could, but the bug wasn't fixed. To make matters more confusing the touch pad wasn't even showing up in Device Manager

After some research found out that the issue was happening to quite a few people. Apparently having the l2C setting in the BIOS set to advanced without the drivers being present will cause the touch pad to not work.

 

FIX

Most claimed that setting the I2C setting to basic will allow the touch pad to work again. So you could install the drivers and then go back into the BIOS and return the setting to advanced.

My fix was simpler. Downloaded all the Win 10 updated that I had available, and after restart the touch pad was working again. (my solution took longer, but it worked ;)

Side note, the USB ports on the Acer Nitro laptop that I worked on were the hardest I have ever worked with. I was genuinely concerned that the thumb drive would break because of the force I was using to insert it, so be careful when buying one. My advice would be to test it in a shop before buying one.

 

That's about it for the first one. Will add pictures and documentation later or, hope this will be of use. Have a good one.

there are billions of issues like that, mostly problems of sh!tty Windows design, I was thinking about writing similar articles too, but there's too much to cover

A journey of a thousand miles begging with a single step.


I'm aware that there are more problems the we all know, but it's worth doing non the less.
