A lot of times the little guy repair stores sell them or can get them.
I have had experiences with broken ones before depending on the type you may be better off buying a new one cause of the price.Sometimes they just can;t be replaced

If there is noise "beep" then it has RAM issue/RAM port. If is not noising then it has motherboard issue. I guess you need to take it to the technician and ask him to fix or replace it.

Tip

Computer mouse tips


Using the mouse in combination with the keys on your keyboard can give you several different advantages and help improve your overall productivity on the computer. Below are just a few examples.
Almost all text editors
Many text editors or programs that allow you to edit text support the ability to quickly highlight all or portions of text by using the Shift key and the mouse. For example, move the cursor to the beginning of the text you wish to highlight, hold down the shift key, and click at the end of the text you wish to highlight. If supported and done properly this will highlight all text in-between the points you clicked.
Microsoft Word
In Microsoft Word holding down the ALT key on your keyboard while clicking and dragging your mouse and you will be able to drag a box and highlight only portions of text and not the whole line.
Windows Explorer and many other file
Microsoft Windows Explorer and other file managing programs allow users to select multiple files by holding down the CTRL key and clicking each file or folder they wish to select or hold down the shift key and selecting multiple files at once.
Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and other browsers
Users who visit a website with tables and wish to only select one row of that table can hold down the CTRL key and click and drag on the text in the row they wish to copy.
Mozilla Firefox users
Mozilla Firefox users can also hold down the CTRL key and individually click on each cell they wish to copy.

My toshiba laser laptop mouse is broken right now. It is a mini retractable laser mouse. The laser is normally red but it is not turned on now.


that sounds like a bad cable connection from the electronics in the mouse to the main-board. That would most likely have to be repaired at Toshiba.

I recommend using the free Microsoft Intellipoint 6.1 software. I have recommended it many times, and it has a ratio of 100% so far, in curing this problem.

the mouse has ps2 interface so it should work anyway. The company doesn't have a very good listing so what i would do is discard mouse and buy a better quality mouse.
Infact the company doesn't give you access to a website other than sales if that answers your question.

My left click is broken


Hello,

if your left mouse button is broken, its best to buy a whole new mouse, they don't cost alot.
In some cases it might be possible to fix the mouse if the button inside is still OK, assuming only the case of the mouse is broken, and the internals are fine.


Thank you,
I will fix it!!

My old computer died. I had to buy a new one. I need to put Microsoft word on it. I have the disc,but I lost the key code that is required to download it on my new computer. Please help.


Hello jlhouchin,

I don't know if anyone can be of much help in just giving you a key for your office disc. You can try checking with Microsoft for a replacement key, but I don't know how far you'll get.

Until then, perhaps give Openoffice a try. It's free, and fully compatible with Microsoft office files:

Wireless mouse all of a suddon stoped working. everything is plugged in fully charged , have tried the connect button along with many others. 7 button centrios laser mouse.


Nice mouse.

I've had some problems with wireless mice in the past, so I will just list the causes and see if one fits the bill for you.

1. Did you move the USB transceiver (this is the device that communicates with the mouse) from one USB port to another? If so, uninstall the mouse and reinstall it using the CD that came with your mouse.

2. Do you have any other wireless devices in the vicinity of your mouse that use a radio frequency rather than infrared, such as a wireless keyboard? If so, you may have a conflict.

3. Were you provided instructions on resetting the RF channel and/or ID code of the mouse? There is a small chance that the channels/codes between the mouse and the transceiver were scrambled and you may need to sync them again.

Hope one of these helps!

We have just purchased a Mikomi keyboard and mouse. The mouse is working perfectly, dispite numerous battery changes the keyboard is refusing to work at all.


1.)When you buy new batteries from the market you nrmally don't check the manufacturing date on the cover pack or at the bottom of the battery. This is where the retailers take you for a ride. Always ask for fresh stock when buying batteries.
2.)Check for loose contact or oxidation or corrosion of battery terminals in the chamber where batteries are installed. In case these are cordless devices, make sure nothing is obstructing the keyboard's line of sight with the infra red transceiver installed on your table top.
3.) If it is within the warranty period, get it exchanged for a new one immediately. No vendor can refuse that.

Hope this helped.

(TIP: never leave batteries inside any gadget when its not going to be used for over a week. Example if you folks are going on a holiday, then remove batteries from gadgets like mouse, keyboard, etc. i.e. gadgets tht you are going to leave behind. This causes the batteries to leak & damage your precious gadgets, at times beyond repair)

Cursor failure


Solution one:

it may be that your mouse is failing and you may need to to buy another, logitech,microsoft etc are very good mouse brands but cost around 30 - 80$. laser and wireless mouses work very well with desktop pc's. but however, if you do buy a new mouse and it does the same thing.


Solution two:

go to you mouse settings and disable "hide cursor while typing" this is a common mistake for mouse settings.

hope this helps you.
