It vacuums up lint and more. That story alone makes me cringe.
Try this. Boot SAFE MODE (widely discussed so I don't tell how) and test again.
Also, ask about CANNED AIR and LAPTOP CLEANING.
Okay so umm i have been facing this problem for a while now for about 3 weeks maybe
Anyway heres what happened
Dad was using the laptop after he was done with it she shut it down
the next day i came to use the laptop all the clicks in the touchpad was moving the left and right but when i try to move the cursor it wont move :S
I got the optical mouse and it had the same problem
The funny thing believe it or not i picked up my laptop with my hand
And for some reason the cursor moving normaly when i picked up my laptop
Right now its on my lap its working fine...
When i put it on my bed,table or anywhere else it doesnt work everything runs normaly
I had this laptop for like 4 years
What seems to be the problem?
Oh and its a Toshiba
