    You say that the connection to the mouse is working, but the cursor won't respond...what makes you think that the connection is working? I am assuming that this is an optical wireless mouse...

Has the computer been ON all the time? What type of mouse is it, PS2 (round plug) or USB (flat plug). If it is PS2 and it got unplugged, it will not work again until you power the system down, make sure the mouse is properly connected and then start the system again. The mouse should be detected and operated normally once the OS is up and running.

Good luck and please let me know how it works out for you.

Pointer works until I login, then sticks in middle of screen. Help?


They say to err is human, but to really mess things up takes a computer. Nothing is more frustrating than to have a computer freeze, shut off with no warning, or, worse, crash completely. One of the more common errors a PC will give you is the freezing of the monitor. With a few simple troubleshooting tips, you can overcome that.

Press Crtl-Alt-Delete (at the same time). This will give you a box generally used to terminate programs. Using the arrows, if you can, shut down all programs running (i.e., Word, Internet Explorer, etc.). Sometimes, it is an error within the programs or with your computer trying to process them all at once that causes your computer to freeze. This is especially true if you have low RAM (anything less than 500 or so MB or RAM). Turn off your computer and restart it. Many times this will end whatever error up above was causing it to drag. If the computer is still frozen when it comes back on, go on to the next steps. Press the tower's power button and hold on to it until the entire system shuts down. Turn off the main power switch and turn it and the computer back on. Sometimes a computer only looks like it is shutting down, but in actuality is not. This should solve the problem. If it doesn't, move on to the next steps. step 4. Try a different mouse. If you have a mouse that connects to a PS2 port, the mouse could be bad. If the mouse doesn't work in that port, the port may be bad, too. Many times people only think their computer is frozen, but really the mouse doesn't work. step 5. Try connecting a USB mouse into a USB port. If it works, you now know that either your PS2 mouse or port are bad. If you have a USB mouse to begin with, try connecting it into another USB port, since the original port may be bad. Try Steps 4 and 5 for the keyboard as well. Take it to a computer doctor, or to the technical department at the store where you purchased it. If none of the above work, you have a bigger problem on your hands. Your computer may be in the initial stages of crashing.

Ps2 port doesn't recognize Microsoft Optical mouse


You might think about a USB hub for all your USB devices. ps2 port is more or less dedicated for mouse, which is why your mouse pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen. Go ahead and get an externally powered USB Hub to power other USB devices. To answer, ps2 for mouse needs just a mouse, not USB device.

Colored vertical lines on monitor


Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Computer Freezes when Samsung YP-U3 in USB Port


Get the firmware upgrade from the Samsung website:
http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDown.do?group=audiovideo&type=mp3players&subtype=flashmemory&model_nm=YP-U3JQPY&language=&cate_type=all&dType=D&mType=FM&vType=L&prd_ia_cd=03040200&disp_nm=YP-U3JQPY

But, it sounds like the USB interface on your computer is diverting all of the power to the USB port, and away from the mouse/keyboard slots - you may need to contact your pc manufacturer on that one.

Dell Dimension 2400 Freezes frequently


check inside the case of the computer to make sure that the interface cable between the hard drive and the motherboard are fully connected. Also check to see if the RAM modules are fully inserted into their slots. If not, they try removing them one by one, until the computer starts up faster. If this doesn't fix it, then try a new hard drive, and interface cable.

Freeze on opening screen


Hi, It is possible that the CD ROM Drive is failing when the system hangs at this screen. You could disconnect the drive and see if it powers up all the time without fail. Also check all other IDE cable connections from the motherboard to the hard drive and any other drives as there may be a loose one etc.

Make sure you will not be voiding any warranty you may have with the machine before you do this.

Please ask if you need any help with this, and let me know how you go.
