It might be that your palm is brushing across the intel touch pad (mouse pad) as you're typing?.. try holding down the function key (Fn) (on the lower left corner of the keyboard) while pressing F9 (this activates the "Toshiba Flash Cards Menu" and is a keyboard shortcut to toggle off/on the touch/mouse pad. You can turn it back on this way too. I almost always use a conventional USB mouse with my laptop for this reason and because it's faster than fiddling around with the pad, IMHO).

How To Use A Spotting Scope For Shooting



If you practice hunting and shooting, a spotting scope is one of the best instruments that you need to have to provide you with a clear view when you are aiming at your target. Before we get started on how to use a spotting scope for shooting, it is great if you know what exactly a spotting scope is.
Precisely, a spotting scope is a small device that is used for many outdoor activities to magnify and help you watch images and objects closely. Before purchasing the best spotting scope for shooting, you need to know a few things that will help you use it well in your shooting career. Here are some things that you need to know when using a spotting scope for shooting.

Comfortable Position Is Key
If you want to get the best performance from your spotting scope, ensure that you position yourself in a comfortable place. You know when you are using a spotting scope you will be holding it for long so it is very crucial to find a comfortable place that you can sit or lay down depending on what you find best. Make sure you find a comfortable place and learn more about the specifications of the area which should be the point of targeted area.

Attach Your Scope To A Tripod
Sometimes holding your scope with your hands can compromise the quality of images that you get because of shaking and fatigue. If you want to achieve a clear and accurate view, get a tripod and attach to your scope. This means that your scope will be very stable because there are minimal movements so you end up getting very accurate results. When you are using a tripod, the chances of missing your target are very minimal.

Adjusting The Magnification
You should also adjust the magnification of your spotting scope to a level that you like. Spotting scopes are designed differently so you need to know how to adjust magnification and the lens layout of your scope. For the most accurate results, it is great if you read the instruction given about the magnification levels and how to adjust.
In some spotting scopes, you need to use the lens knob so that you can zoom in and out of the magnification. In other scopes, you need to use the small zoom in and zoom round trigger on the point of the eyepiece.

View Target Area And Adjust Magnification
When you are using spotting scopes, it is not advisable to go with the magnification first because you might not get the right results. The best thing that you can do is to view the target area first and then adjust the magnification effectively.

Reset Focus In A New Area Always
This is very important because a sudden highly magnified glass can cause problems to your eyes. This means you can feel uneasy when you are watching your target longer. This results because of watching at a very high magnification glass for a prolonged period. You can overcome the problem by reducing the effect of the magnify glass on your eyes.

Beating The Sun
If you want to become a spotting scope pro, you must learn how to beat the sun. You need to know how to deal with the frustrating heat waves because they quickly distort your view and it becomes difficult to grass. The best way in which you can beat the sun is to zoom out. Zoom out to a lower power setting and you will enjoy heat-wave glassing hours. You should wait for passing cloud because they reduce the heat wave and give you the chance to zoom back in your target.

Final Words
Buying the best spotting scope for shooting is not enough. You also need to learn how to use it so that you can get clear and bright images all the time. This will help you gain accuracy when you are shooting so no more missed shots. If you learn these tips, you will not experience any problem when you are hunting or shooting. Knowing how to use your scope is the only way in which you will get most out of it when shooting. Best Spotting Scope to buy in 2017 Buying Guide Reviews

Rock-ola 448 jukebox skipping how to repair


The stylus might be worn or of the wrong type. A simple tone arm needs a round stylus and if an elliptical type (intended for a long S-shaped tone arm) has been fitted by mistake it could skip.

If nothing is wrong there, the remaining conclusion is either the mechanism is maladjusted or the tonearm bearing has a tight spot. In that case the tone arm should be removed and the shaft examined under strong magnification and any irregularities carefully removed, eased, blended in using a very fine abrasive (12,000 - 20,000 grit) and then ensuring the shaft and bearing is thoroughly clean apply a little very light machine oil and reassemble and readjust the playing weight...

How do you adjust the Throttle Position sensor on a 2004 GS500 F Suzuki MC

How to adjust auxiliary lights on 2010 HD heritage softail. Cannot find any way to make adjustments.


If you're talking about the "spot lights", there is a special tool you need to adjust them. You loosen the turn signal light below the "spot", adjust the spot light, then hold it with the special tool while you tighten the turn signal. You can purchase the tool from a Harley dealer or some of the aftermarket parts dealers like V-Twin or Custom Chrome, Jireh.

Good Luck

When typing, the curser skips.


Even though you may not even be touching the touchpad, touchpads and the tiny ribbon cables that connect them to the motherboard (directly under the keyboard) can be so sensitive that they activate the cursor just from typing alone.

Here's a great little app you can download that disables the touchpad ONLY while keystrokes are being made. It's saved a ton of my clients (and myself) alot of grief. If it doesn't solve your problem, then you can repost and move ahead with further help in tracking down the problem.
