Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Mouse freezes & Hard drive LED indicator remains 'ON' all the time.

My new Acer Extensa 4630Z notebook has developed mouse freezing problem of late & the third LED light from right in front of the laptop remains yellow almost always. I wonder if the LED light is the Hard Drive indicator. If so why should it remain yellow all the time ? Could anyone help me please on both of my problems ?

You could be running too many programs all at once.

Have you done a CTRL ALT DEL to bring up the task manager?

Check the "Performance" tab. If the CPU is at 90 to 100 %, for a long time, and the notebook is offline, then u could have a virus that is attempting to get on the internet and therefore slowing you down.

Since ur notebook is new, Have you set up all the programs to NOT check for automatic updates in all their options areas?

Lots of times all the major softwares are built in with default options to check for updates and auto install those.

So if you could look for those too and uncheck them...then reboot. You should see a performance difference.

Cannot connect mouse to the usb port


Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
