Left mouse button not working

Hi Jim,

Was it working before.?
Have you checked the settings in the Mouse System preference?
If you connect that mouse to another computer, does it work ?
If not.. it's a dead mouse.. how old is it.. If it's less than a year Apple will gladly exchange it.. If it's more than 5 years... it's dead

You either have one of the following:

2. Wrong adapter - yours no comprende w/ unit.
3. Cracked Jack - means you've got to get a tech to take the unit apart and replace it. $150-200
4. Goto your device manager, double click bat., then right mouse click on acpi driver and update it. Hopefully that works.

Screen won't light up

If your phone screen won't light up then you will need to take the phone into to a repair store unless your phone is less than a year old. All cellphones have a manufacturer's warranty or if you have insurance on the phone. If its less than a year old then take it to your provider in the store because it falls under lg to fix/replace your phone.

My Mouse Wont Work Good

Generally any mouse should be taken apart and cleaned every year. My first encounter of a frozen mouse was years ago. I had opened it up and found so much dust and residue inside of it I had to brush it out first before blowing it out with compressed air. Use a spray bottle that is dry and empty to blow it with. Have a terry cloth below the area you will direct the air pressure to incase something such as the thumb wheel falls out. I recommend that all loose parts are taken out before cleaning. Draw a scetch if needed how to reassemble the mouse. A digital camera works best taking photos as you take it apart

Unblock touchpad in HP laptop

that is not new, its a refurb. and old
the DV2-1000 (was introduced with windows 2000)
the most were sold in 2009 with Window VISTA. (yours?)
makes sure you have an internet connection first.
then use real mouse, plugged in to any USB port.
get that mouse working first. then..

the touch pad, the virtual mouse pad in the center is dead.
that means (can be of of many) the driver of the pad is missing
If running VISTA , go to control panel. click device manager.
then click on the pointing device. and right click it and pick update driver.
if it still working this fixes it.

for sure there are other causes, computers are a bet complex.
like virus infection
the touch pad cable inside fell off
or OS corruption, Vista corrupted by some means.. (many)like hard disk failure or failing RAM.

Marble mouse left click isn't working well

Try this first. It worked for me.

1. flip it over
2. take out the four obvious screws
3. poke a hole in the sticker right above the "s" where "Marble Mouse" is written to find the fifth hidden screw
4. take out that hidden screw
5. gently unsnap the top from the bottom
6. clean whatever dust/dirt you find in there
7. put a small piece of tape on the bottom side of the left-click button that's not working (in my experience I'd clicked so many zillion times through the years that the plastic where the button made contact was slightly dented thereby making it to where my left-click button wouldn't work very well
8. put it all back together
9. pat yourself on the back for saving a bunch of money
10. celebrate w/ friends

Washer vibrates on spin cycle and is falling apart,

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You say, your door is cracked.soap dispenser is cracked and falling apart?
How old is the washer????????????
Waiting for your response!


Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old washer

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
Please do not for get to give a rating before you sign off!
Thank You, HUUUM
