Based on what you've written, it appears there is something internally wrong with your controller. Either the button keeps sticking and it won't lift back up or it could be a dust problem. This usually happens when your controller takes severe beatings after losing to a boss battle or just from old age. You should try the following:

- Try blowing into the controller slot or using a q-tip and rubbing alcohol to clean the pins
- Make sure the controller is plugged in correctly then try resetting the game console (usually the controller has to be plugged in before turning on a system)
- If you're brave enough, take apart the controller and pop the button back into place
- The rubber padding separating the plastic button and the computer chip might be worn (sometimes it becomes extremely sensitive)
- If all else fails, I'd consider purchasing a new controller

I hope this helped,

    If I knew exactly what brand of controller and whether you're referring
    to the joystick or d-pad, I might be able to assist you more.

Asus zenpad10 tablet stuck in fastboot mode

KEEP HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL YOUR PHONES SWITCHES OFF OR PULL OUT THE BATTERY DIRECTLY(If Required) to exit the FAST BOOT MODE and then start your phone normally by pressing only the power button.

Also in case you were trying to enter the recovery mode to wipe cache or hard reset then keep holding the power button and volume DOWN button until you get vibration and release the power button and keep holding the volume DOWN button to enter RECOVERY.

My mouse randomly activates menus without me really clicking on them or it will start the scroll function while I'm in excel and drop 2-300 rows all of a sudden

A button on your mouse is probably going bad. It could also be a button on your keyboard like the shift key is stuck.

I've helped a few people at work that have a book laying on a key and it does wierd things.

Most likely it is one of the mouse buttons.

Menu Scrolls Uncontrollably

The most common cause of the problem is a stuck/shorted button either on the television or on the remote. The worst case scenario is a faulty key control board. Remove the remote control battery or put it away from the television. Press the menu button on the television and check if the menu scrolls by itself. If yes, the DOWN button is stuck or shorted. You can actually hear or feel it click when pressed if it is not stuck.

Open the back of the television to gain access to the key control board. You can either repair/replace the faulty button or replace the key control board. Remove the screw holding it to the television casing. Disconnect the old board and install the new one.

Replace the remote control if the buttons on the television control are working properly.

Important photos are stuck in the internal memory of my camera.

Select the Display mode with the top dial. Press the Set button to bring up the menus. Press the Rev key to scroll down through the menus. On the second page of menus, select the Copy menu. Then press the Lightning Bolt key to scroll right. Select the top of the 2 menu items. This will copy the internal pics to the memory card, assuming you have a memory card inserted.
