Question about Apple MA590LLA Mac Desktop

1 Answer

Desktop display moves all over the display when the mouse is used

Desktop moves all over the display when the mouse is moved.  Not sure how to explain this. Working on imac, everything normal,  click the mouse to open something then all of a sudden, the entire  desktop display screen becomes "unhinged" and started moving back and  forth as the mouse is move as if it reset itself in system profiles to a lower resolution. Tried resetting monitor in system  profile back to higher res, tried mouse settings. Shut down, unplugged, boot back up.  And problem remains.

I know you've already visited the Mouse options in Preferences, but did you check to see if the  "Zoom Using Scroll Wheel" box is checked? If it is, uncheck it. 
Or on the keyboard, try pressing these three keys at the same time: Option / Apple (Command) / 8. That should do the same thing.
I hope that helps.

    I unchecked the scroll wheel and it did nothing. The fix of pressing option/Apple Command/8 worked, but I no longer see it here.

I need clear instructions on how to transfer data from Windows XP laptop to Windows 7 desktop by Kingston DT1/2GB


I assume the USB pen is formatted and empty.
Place the Pen in a free USB on your laptop and with Explorer select the file/s you want to copy. Highlight the file names and with "My Computer" open drag the files onto the Pen.
When you have finished, remove the Pen and place it in the Win7 desktop.
Open Explorer on your Desktop and select the files in the Pen. Right hand mouse click on them using the move command and place them on your desktop.
When you have finished you can then make folders to move them into on your Win7 Desktop.
Hope this explains it for you.

My desktop pc window is jumping up and down. cannot control curser or jumping. intermittent problem.


What do you mean you can't control the cursor? Sounds like two different problems to me. The jumping is more than likely your monitor taking a ****. Check the monitor plug to be sure it is tight. Explain the cursor problem more is it the mouse cursor that won't move?

Arrow wont move


Dear Fayereid01,

You said "I have a dell computer and when I turn it on to the desktop the arrow wont move to go any further its a desktop with a IBM keyboard"

Make sure that the mouse is plugged into the the correct port. If the mouse you are using is a USB mouse then try other USB ports. If it is another type of mouse that uses a different plug, then try all the ports on your computer that it fits into until it works. It sounds unprofessional but it should work.

If none of this works then put in the CD that should of come with you mouse and install the drivers for your mouse. If you cant find the disc for your mouse then go online to the manufacturers website and you should be able to download the drivers there.

Zoomed moving display while mouse is moving


You have screen zoom turned on. If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel please hold down CTRL and move your mouse wheel down to return to original screen size.

If you need more help go into System Preferences> Keyboard and mouse> Mouse Tab and at the bottom it will tell you the settings for Zooming, if you don't need it I suggest you turn it off.

Hope that helps!
