If it is a PS/2 mouse with roller ball, the horizontal wheel sensors are gone. No sense in trying to fix this roller ball PS/2 mice are really cheap. As far as the USB mouse you may have to install a driver. Depends on the operating system.

    I was having the same problem with a ps/2 mouse, i opened it up, cleaned it with no luck, then i played with the sensors on it a little and it started working again. Make sure u open it up before getting a new mouse.

Computer wont boot up


If you have one of those generic motherboards with Intel chipset, socket 478, 2 or 3 PCI slots in a mini ATX form so, don't waste your time and buy a new one. Some time ago I replaced it with a cheap Biostar P4M80-M4 and is much better.

I just bought a new computer and during games, when I move the mouse, sometimes it doesn't respond well, it will lag out, and move slowly at times. It's a new mouse and I even checked other ones but they...


1.Try cleaning the bottom of the mouse.

2.Is it a USB based mouse? Check the USB hub\devices to make sure the drivers are installed properly. Try using the mouse on different port.

3. Your mouse might be driver specific, so the default mouse drivers might not work with the one your using. If they are you'll need to download the ones they need.

Trying to install windows and at the boot screen have my keyboard and mouse plugged in windows doesnt see it.. I tried the USB keyboard and nothing I just recently replaced the MOBO using anti-static wrist...


I have seen this before, and the best answer I can offer you is some Motherboards are better than others when working with usb devices while no OS is in place. I actually tried using usb / to / ps/2 adapters and it still would not recognize the usb keyboard in a couple of instances. I had to get a ps2 keyboard for the installation of windows. After windows was installed I hooked up the usb keyboard and it worked fine. (just speaking from my own personal experience here)

Sorry I do not have a more technical answer for you but I'm almost 99.9 % sure this should work, providing there is no problem with the ps2 keyboard port on the Motherboard. I have never failed to install windows unless there was another hardware based issue of some kind, but never a problem with a known good ps2 keyboard.

Just double check everything is seated properly and try to get into the bios setup, if you cannot use the usb keyboard for this, you can try the usb / ps2 adapter, but if that doesn't work either then use a regular ps2 keyboard. That should work fine, then after setup is complete, windows is installed, then your usb keyboard should work fine.

Windows not loading


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Whenever Microsoft Windows XP is installed on a system, the OS is binded to the motherboard, specifically to the chipsets. I am assuming that when you replaced the motherboard, the OS was not reinstalled and it was still binded to the original Dell Dimension board, most likely an Intel 925X Express chipset. When the OS started to load, it could not find the original 925X chipset and instead finds itself confronted with Biostar VIA P4M900/VT8237A chipsets which is an unknown, hence the BSOD.

You could try:
  • boot from CD drive with an XP installer and use the second repair option;
  • boot into Safe Mode (F8) and try to uninstall the Intel devices entries (except the CPU) and allow the system to auto detect (if it will) the new hardware;
  • backup your files and perform a fresh/clean install on the new motherboard.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

New ram messing up computer


Does not sound like a memory problem. Usually the machine just crashes. You can run memtest86 to really exercise the memory on your machine. Download (for free) from http://www.memtest.org/#downiso. You have to burn the image to a CD-ROM then boot from the CD. Let it run for a couple of hours and you'll know if you have a memory problem.

You can get this BIOS here(see link), but I wouldn't advise flashing the BIOS unless you know what you're doing.

Gateway 610 k/b & mouse unrecognized..CMOS problem??


It's not the K/M, there probably was a surge that went through, and effected the motherboard in the computer. so you can take it to your local computer shop. But, before you bring it there, back up your important files because they might have to format your HD.

check all the pins for the power supply to the motherboard.
actually all connections to the motherboard should be checked. use the manual to make sure all the connections are correct.

Biostar M4M70-M4 mounting question


Of course it could make a difference. Any contact between an active voltage on a motherboard and the metal of the case will fry the motherboard and possibly the P/S. There are different sizes of standoffs to fit different cases and motherboards. Sometimes if a person doesn't use a sufficient number of standoffs, one corner or another of the motherboard can be inadvertently bent toward the case ground causing a short. Even the raised mounds you speak of need standoffs of some type if the surface of the raised mound encrouches upon a surface of the motherboard that has voltage on it.
