Hi Rajmund,
 
Approach 2 – Device Manager
 
Open the Control Panel, then go to System > Device Manager. Navigate to the Mouse Option, right click on it, and click Disable.
 
Take care.

Is disabling it through the device manager,  the one through mouse settings, or the one, which you access through windows-x?

You may not have the system tray set to show all icons or there may be some sort of overflow icon you need to click.  I don't know how the system tray is set up in your version of windows.  I don't know what you would see but my Toshiba Windows 7 computer has an item in the system tray named synaptics pointing device.

Hello list,

So I need to get another tower for work. Doesn’t need to be anything fancy so was figuring on going the refurbished rout. I’m looking at some refurbished Dell OptiPlex 790 and 990 options. Quad Core I5 and I7 processors for anywhere between $250 and$300. I’d go cheaper, but don’t want any issues with Jaws sluggishness on less powerful processors. Looks like I can still get Win 7 or Win 10 witch I’m leaning towards.

I bought an HP last year with 8 GB of ram and 2TB of storage, but it’s been a frustrating machine. Jaws is slow to respond. Don’t know if it has anything to do with the processer (AMD A8-6410 APU with AMD Radeon R5) but having tried everything to optimize it, uninstalling programs, disabling settings, etc. It’s what it is I suppose.

Anyway, I’ve always had good luck with Dell and indeed, I find Jaws and my keyboard snappier on my going on five year old dell vostro 3750 laptop than this HP from last year.

Anyone had experience with either one of these Dells and can they comment on their performance with Jaws? Again, this is mostly for work. Emails, documents, spreadsheets, Skype telephonic calls.  That sort of boring thing.

 



Re: my dell laptop

Well don’t know it looks like a dual core but why would they say it is a quad core. Is a dual core with 4 threads or processers or whatever the hell is the same as quad core? Just trying to understand why they call it quad core? This is unlike dell to say something it is not.

The following link will give the specs of the Intel Core i7-7500U, which is dual core and runs at 2.7GHz. If your CPU on the new notebook is 3.5GHz, I don’t know what it is, unless they are referring to the max CPU speed under Turbo Boost.

OK Matt,

 

The Intel Core I series for laptops are essentially all dual core, but have what they call 4 hyperthreads, and generally have turbo boost to increase processing power when required, that is why they usually describe the CPU speed as, for example, 2.7 -3.1GHz. If it were a true quad core it would have 8 hyperthreads. I don’t know of any laptop/notebook that incorporates a true quad core processor, so I am guessing that your new Dell is dual core, but with 4 hyperthreads.

Oh yes I always check on anything new to make sure it is what I suppose to get.  Now something come to mind . they are saying quad core . I just wondering they really mean dual core with 4 processers. Each core having two processers on each core.  I guess in one way that could be called a quad core . I would have called it quad processers . I assume if it is it would be just as good or better? Either way you usually don’t use but two processers unless you are doing something intense  and then the other processers kick in . Don’t know if there would be a benefit to having 4 cores with 1 processer on each core or two cores with two processers on each core. This is getting a little deep for me so don’t know.  You want to chime in on this Carlos?

The two model options I saw are with the i5 7200u and i7 7500 u both of which are dual core. And true, the 7500 u runs at 3.5 ghz.  It is surprising that many manufacturers are bundling ultra low voltage (U) processors in 15 inch notebooks that can handle quad core processors.  Personally, I am going to hold onto this computer as long as I can and get an HQ processor when I need a new one.

It has 13 inch screen and 16 gB of ram and Quad core processer up to 3.5 GHZ and 512 SD drive. This is the biggest part of the specs and I hope t to get around a decade out of this if not more.  I needed a backup windows pct. to my desktop. It has better specs than my desktop so  I might end up making this my main PC. My desktop is a Dell XPS with Quad core processer and 12 GB of ram and a 750 rpm HD with a storage of 750 GB. And a dedicated graphic card with 2 GB of on board memory. I have had this desktop for about 6 years or so. Running great it has W10 on it now W10 pro .

The Intel Core I series for laptops are essentially all dual core, but have what they call 4 hyperthreads, and generally have turbo boost to increase processing power when required, that is why they usually describe the CPU speed as, for example, 2.7 -3.1GHz. If it were a true quad core it would have 8 hyperthreads. I don’t know of any laptop/notebook that incorporates a true quad core processor, so I am guessing that your new Dell is dual core, but with 4 hyperthreads.

 

John.

hi,

The two model options I saw are with the i5 7200u and i7 7500 u both of which are dual core. And true, the 7500 u runs at 3.5 ghz.  It is surprising that many manufacturers are bundling ultra low voltage (U) processors in 15 inch notebooks that can handle quad core processors.  Personally, I am going to hold onto this computer as long as I can and get an HQ processor when I need a new one.

Well I order a Dell XPS 9360 laptop. This is my Xmas to myself.

It has 13 inch screen and 16 gB of ram and Quad core processer up to 3.5 GHZ and 512 SD drive. This is the biggest part of the specs and I hope t to get around a decade out of this if not more.  I needed a backup windows pct. to my desktop. It has better specs than my desktop so  I might end up making this my main PC. My desktop is a Dell XPS with Quad core processer and 12 GB of ram and a 750 rpm HD with a storage of 750 GB. And a dedicated graphic card with 2 GB of on board memory. I have had this desktop for about 6 years or so. Running great it has W10 on it now W10 pro .

BTW it supposed to be here this week or the first of next week.

Re: my dell laptop

Matt
 

So they are considering a dual core with I assume two processers on each core hyper threading as a quad core.  Just trying to understand where they getting quad core from and it is a dual core.  Wouldn’t a dual core with two processers to each core be quad processers  not quad core . Having a problem with this. Understanding this.   It sounds like to me you would have a core with two hands versa a core with one hand . the dual core with the two processers would be two hands on one core working together. While on the quad core it would be one processer per core which would be like one hand to the core.  It sounds like to me you get more done with the two hands working together then each hand working separately.

Hi Matt,

 

Not sure what CPU you are actually getting, but the specs for the Dell XPS 13 9360 QHD+ with Core i7 processor is the Intel Core i7-7500U. Will try to locate the specs for that specific CPU and let you know.

 

BTW, I don’t know whether you mistook the QHD+ part of the Dell name for HQ, but from my understanding, HQ in reference to CPUs means soldered quad core.

I don't know what else it is asking you if you want Thunderbird to be the default for. The only check box you reproduced is for news groups. I'm sure that somewhere in Thunderbird's settings, you can tell it to check again in future. If you only use Thunderbird for e-mail, then unless any of the check boxes have to do with e-mail, they won't affect you. Just check the don't show me again item and I assume there is an ok button to activate.

Yes. As the text said it as well. I used NVDA speech viewer to copy, so the current status of the box is what it said there. Regardless of whether I check the always check check box, or for that matter, uncheck mail, news, and calendar, the message is haunting me.

I don't know what else it is asking you if you want Thunderbird to be the default for.  The only check box you reproduced is for news groups.  I'm sure that somewhere in Thunderbird's settings, you can tell it to check again in future.  If you only use Thunderbird for e-mail, then unless any of the check boxes have to do with e-mail, they won't affect you.  Just check the don't show me again item and I assume there is an ok button to activate.

Yes I don't recall hearing of any laptops with true quad-core processors either, with the possible exception of the Razer Blade gaming laptop.

OK Matt,

 

The Intel Core I series for laptops are essentially all dual core, but have what they call 4 hyperthreads, and generally have turbo boost to increase processing power when required, that is why they usually describe the CPU speed as, for example, 2.7 -3.1GHz. If it were a true quad core it would have 8 hyperthreads. I don’t know of any laptop/notebook that incorporates a true quad core processor, so I am guessing that your new Dell is dual core, but with 4 hyperthreads.

 

John.

Oh yes I always check on anything new to make sure it is what I suppose to get.  Now something come to mind . they are saying quad core . I just wondering they really mean dual core with 4 processers. Each core having two processers on each core.  I guess in one way that could be called a quad core . I would have called it quad processers . I assume if it is it would be just as good or better? Either way you usually don’t use but two processers unless you are doing something intense  and then the other processers kick in . Don’t know if there would be a benefit to having 4 cores with 1 processer on each core or two cores with two processers on each core. This is getting a little deep for me so don’t know.  You want to chime in on this Carlos?

hi

That is nice.  Make sure to check the processor when you get it though.

Hi, all I know is I requested a quad core processer and they said that would be what I would get a I 7 7th gen .  It had to be customize to that. I called them or did it over chat and then did the order over the phone. So if it not what they said it is it will be going back! Not paying that kind of money for a dual core processer.  They told me it would be a quad core processer.

hi,

The two model options I saw are with the i5 7200u and i7 7500 u both of which are dual core. And true, the 7500 u runs at 3.5 ghz.  It is surprising that many manufacturers are bundling ultra low voltage (U) processors in 15 inch notebooks that can handle quad core processors.  Personally, I am going to hold onto this computer as long as I can and get an HQ processor when I need a new one.

Hi, yes I got the touch screen and I got my custom made! With the I 7 7th gen processer  it is not standard built! They do make it with the Dual core processer.  Which is standard built.  My has the quad core processer I 7  7th gen up to 3.5 GHZ and 16 GB of ram and 512 GB SD and rose Gold in color and touch screen. They make the 9360 in touch screen and without the touch screen the one without max out with a duel core processer. I also got the 2 year warranty with it.  But it was custom made to my specs.

hi,

are you sure it has a quad core?  From what I can see, it has an i7 7500 U processor, which is definitely a dual core processor.

I have no idea I have not got it yet. It is a Dell XPS 9360  so you might could call dell and ask them or see if they have aa picture of it and get  a seeing person to see if it does. I will use a external keyboard most of the time not the built in one. I have never liked the laptop keyboards . I use them when I have no other choice.  I really wanted a surface pro 4 but what kept me from that was the lack of ports it has on it.  Otherwise I would have got it.

This sounds great and I am kicking around the idea of a new laptop. I know that Carlos recently said the Dell computer is really good these days. I do have one question. does the laptop have a context key on the right of the space bar and a ctrl key on each side? My 13 inch Toshiba has those keys and I find it so much faster to use.

Smiles, I’d agree with the optimistic statement. I’m curious which chipset came in this machine?

Sounds like a good package; how much dollars. 10 years for a laptop?   Seems a bit optimistic.

 

Good luck,

Well I order a Dell XPS 9360 laptop. This is my Xmas to myself.

It has 13 inch screen and 16 gB of ram and Quad core processer up to 3.5 GHZ and 512 SD drive. This is the biggest part of the specs and I hope t to get around a decade out of this if not more.  I needed a backup windows pct. to my desktop. It has better specs than my desktop so  I might end up making this my main PC. My desktop is a Dell XPS with Quad core processer and 12 GB of ram and a 750 rpm HD with a storage of 750 GB. And a dedicated graphic card with 2 GB of on board memory. I have had this desktop for about 6 years or so. Running great it has W10 on it now W10 pro .

BTW it supposed to be here this week or the first of next week.

 

 

 

Thanks,

Matt.from.florida@...
