    I recently installed a Logitech Web Cam on my computer.Ever since I have a problem with the mouse.It won't move after a short period of time.The only way I can get it to move is shut the computer off and tun it back on after about 15 seconds.I talked with Logitech and they suggested moving to another port.I haven't tried this yet,due to just having hip replacement surgery.Any help would be appreciated.

You need a new mouse. Upgrading an OS will not fix a hardware problem.

My right and left touchpad buttons on my Dell Laitude XT Tablet have the same functionality! How can I fix this?!!


You can use the Control Panel mouse options to adjust settings for the mouse
and the track stick (Windows Vista) or pointer (Windows XP).
• In Windows Vista, click Control Panel? Mouse.
• In Windows XP, click Control Panel? Printers and Other Hardware?

I have a Medion wireless mouse and the mouse pointer keeps freezing intermittently. The operating system is windows vista home premium.


Make sure the mouse batteries are fully charged.

Also make sure the mouse is not too far away from the base / cradle and there is nothing blocking the sensor on the front of the mouse cradle.

Make sure all the cables are fully inserted. Check both ends of the power adapter plug going into the back of the mouse cradle and the plugs leading to the back of the computer.

Try cleaning the little red LED light under the mouse with a QTip to remove any dust.

Finally try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice.

Also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.

Good luck and please comment back and RATE if this was helpful.

Activating COT2 wireless mouse


Your ACME COT2 wireless mouse must have come in two pieces, the USB connector the mouse itself.
Insert the USB connector of your wireless mouse to your Toshiba Satellite and press simultaneously the button in your USB connector and the button in the wireless mouse. This is done in order to pair the mouse to the USB connector.

ACER T160 FREEZES


I have an aspiteM3610 withVistaWith almost the same problem from input freezes for about 8 minutes to a total machine freeze and a hang to be followed by a switch-off (by me).
I don't have a real solution but to explore the problem you may take a look at the installed RAM: wilth all of the updates of Windows and services running even 1 GB may be to cramped. So may consider to add two strips of 1 GB. Furthermore I have slowly found out that the USB system has a problem: I can't start up with a logitech wireless mouse and /or an USB drive or al large USB stick in the machine and after connecting them after startup they will sometimes give rise to rather strange problems in the system even bitmap errors in the MFT of a NTFS partition. If this happens too you may try to boot with a PS/s keyboard and even no mouse at first and try it out.
Good luck!

.the mouse moves randomly across


Hi,
If mouse is moving randomly across the screen then you may have to change the mouse or the mouse pad. If system freezes automatically that is your software problem. Please install a fresh copy of windows xp or vista whatever. Hopefully it should work . thank you.......

Mouse and Keyboard problem encountered in game


the problem is not with your mouse or keyboard but with your system itself. vista is very intensive in eating up your memory resources. try to disable some program like aero or other features of vista which will slow down your computer. how big is your memory both internal and video?
