Hi,

I was helping a friend fix his laptop and we suspect the hard drive is failing. The make/model of the hard drive is a Fujitsu 120GB MHV2120BH. It is a SATA drive. I was trying to find the utility to check it but couldn't find it on their website. Maybe I'm just being dumb. So I read somewhere that you can use the seagate seatools software for any hard disk. So, I downloaded the ISO and burned it to cd. It boots up fine and takes me to a user agreement. the problem is that it won't let me click yes to agree using the touchpad or an external usb mouse. The laptop doesn't have a ps/2 connection so not sure how to get that utility to work. I read on some other forums about this problem but no one seemed to have a solution. Any ideas on the SeaTools problem or know where I can get the Fujitsu Utility?

The laptop is a HP DV9000.

Thanks in advance.

Re: No mouse in HD Utility software

No Tab does not work. Nothing on the keyboard seems to work within this utility and their is nothing to turn off the mousepad either. However both the keyboard and mouse work fine outside of the utility.

Re: No mouse in HD Utility software

Most laptops (if not all) come with a function key. You'll find one near the bottom left. The function key is labelled "Fn" and usually stands out from the rest - either the "Fn" is in a different color or the key as a whole. The function key works in conjunction with other keys on the keyboard especially the ones in the top row marked "F1" to "F12". The combination of function key with these keys lets you perform various tasks quickly such as shutting the screen, putting the computer in sleep mode, switching the wireless connection on and off etc.

Laptop function keys -activate the touchpad using Fn and F8

By keeping the function key pressed and then hitting one of the keys ("F1" to "F12"), activates a task. (and I've noticed this on HP and Toshiba systems too), you can activate and deactivate the touchpad by using the function key with the "F8" key.
