Hello,
Usually this problem can be easily solved by accessing and changing your mouse settings. On your PC desktop, click "start", then click "control panel", then click "mouse", then on the "buttons" tab you'll see an option that says, "button configuration". That button needs to be adjusted according to which side of the mouse you'd like the pointer to work from. Once you set the side you'd like, make sure you click, "OK" to seal the deal!
Hope this helps.
Sincerely, CBR2009

How do i delite books i have read


To delete content on Kindle 1

Connect the USB cable that came with your Kindle to a PC.When prompted, select "Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer." You should now see 3 folders named: "Audible, music and documents."
Open the "documents" folder. From the "View" menu in explorer, select "Details." so that you can see all file details -- in columns. Click on the top of the "Name" column to sort all of your documents by name. You should see two files for each book you have on your Kindle. The extensions for these files are ".AZW" and ".MBP" The AZW file will be the largest of the two. For each title you wish to remove, select both related files and delete them. Don't forget you can hold down the "Ctrl" key to select multiple items in the list...
Disconnect the USB cable from your Kindle. Turn the Kindle off, then back on. The deleted titles should now be missing from your Kindle home page.


It is much easier to delete the content on Kindle 2, scroll to the shaded line below the book you want to delete. Push the mouse button to the right and a menu will pop up - "Remove from Device" is the last option. Scroll to that choice, select and Voila!

My laptop is Hp TouchSmart tx2,the problm is :-The pointer moves unwnted icon it click by it self.


The problem is very simple. The sensitivity of the mouse pad is too high in your laptop i guess. Try adjusting the sensitivity of the mouse. Go to control panel-> mouse options->mouse sensitivity. Try changing the double clicking speed, mouse sensitivity etc and check your mouse operation now.

Mouse Pad and Right and Left Buttons


Great job, I myself prefer to use a extra mouse rather then the built in one, if you chose to do this it wont work right away but if you give it a moment to recognize the mouse it will then be functionable.

Erratic mouse/pointer behavior


I ended up calling IBM support (after many calls to them) and since the Tablet was still under warranty I sent it out for repair and they ended up replacing the planar card. Tablet was returned and I have had no further issues with the mouse.
