Advent wireless mouse AMWL13 works for 30 seconds then freezes


Sorry to hear you're having that problem, Karen. I was unable to find the model # that you posted, but I DID find something for an M312 wireless mouse made by Advent:

If you look at the response to this issue, it lists everything I would've typed in here to suggest trying. Wireless peripherals are a "strange animal", in that so many different factors can influence their optimal operating condition. Hopefully something in this article can help you, and good luck! :)

Hello, I recently purchased a new battery for my dell laptop as I thought that was the reason it was not turning on. After putting the battery in and letting it charge 12 hrs it still does not turn on. ...


Hmmm, that is a good one. I take it the battery is a brand new one as if it were second hand, it may be faulty.
Does the laptop work on mains power? If it doesn't then you have issues with the mother board.
Does the charge light flash? If it does the battery is still charging and needs more time.

It is worth contacting Dell direct on the www as they have a lot of usefull suggestions and there is no point in me adding them to this note.
Hope that helps.

Mouse pad not working


A mouse pad is a thing you put your mouse on....

now what you are talking about is your touchpad.

Check these first:

  • some laptops have a switch that turns off the touch pad (usually a button right on the topside of the touchpad)
  • did you reboot completely? full shutdown, then power on?
  • goto the device manager (with a usb mouse of course) and find the touchpad... delete the device... then reboot again it should try and find the touchpad and ask for the driver, point it to the directory that you have the driver located.
good luck!
