Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Everytime I am typing a letter, whether it be by email or on a forum, the screen disappears and so does the letter. It seems like it might have to do with the cursor for some reason. Sometimes it just moves to another place in the letter. The problem is getting worse and I've had this computer for only two years. It's a Sony Vaio and it's loaded but I'm about to throw it into the fireplace! (its' a laptop)

Hi,
What kind of mouse are you using with your laptop? Are you using the built-in one or an external? If using an external is it possibly one with "red light" underneath instead of a ball? If so make sure that you are using it on a MATT surface. Even a slightly glossy surface has a tendency to make the cursor jump all over the place.
Also possibly your palms might be touching the internal mouse if it has a touch-pad (I'm assuming it does). You may want to disable that pad if so.
Let me know if any of this makes sense? :)
Thanks,
Kaj

Ow to eject koboglo from computer connection


In Windows Explorer, right-click the the drive letter that represents the Kobo and left-click "Eject" in the context menu. Wait a few moments. The drive letter should disappear or become gray when this happens the Kobo is unmounted. Now you can unplug the reader safely from the computer, no matter what the Kobo screen shows. There is no signal sent from Windows to the Kobo itself will stay on the "connected and charging" screen until you physically unplug it from the the computer.

Cant turn on the monitor


try another screen, if its ok than its your screen. if the other screen (even an old one) does it than its your video card.
you can also put your screen to another computer and if it does it than you know its the screen.

DVD DRIVE DISAPPEARS


does it just disappear on its own? Or is it possible that its disappearing after you plug in other USB devices and the driver letter gets nabbed? Or if you're in a office with network drives they could be taking the driver letter.
