Milligrams in milliliters how many mg equal how many ml

Milligram is a unit of mass (or weight), milliliter is a unit of volume.

One milliliter of water weights 1000 milligrams. One milliliter of gold weighs nearly 20,000 milligrams. For cough syrup, just pretend it's water and use the 1000 number.

I have a cough that apparently is viral. Is it worth taking cough medicines for it?

Many experts believe that viral coughs will just go in their own time and that cough medicines are just a placebo ( ie they make people feel like they are doing something to get rid of the cough). But some cough medicines can still help relieve some of the irritating symptoms.

Speak to your local pharmacist to see if they can recommend any good syrups.

What is the difference between a cough syrup that is an expectorant as opposed to a suppressant?

It's actually really important to know the difference between an expectorant and a suppressant, so that you can buy the right one for your cough.

Expectorants - They thin the mucus, making it easier to cough up which helps clear the air ways of mucus and eases chest congestion.

Suppressants - They lessen the urge to cough. If the cough is wet sounding and hacking, it's not good to use a suppressant but for dry coughs that don't use mucus they can help you to sleep better and cough less.

How do you make your own garlic cough syrup? I heard from a neighbor that it really works.

Chop up some fresh garlic along with some ginger. Mix it in honey and let it marinade for at least a night. Once it's ready you can take a tablespoon full whenever you are coughing.

Can't right or left click on inspirion 1501, touchpad is fine.

It would appear that the left/right touch pad buttons have failed. You will have 3 options at this point in time.
1) Use an external wireless mouse such as a Logitech Wireless Mouse M505 for roughly $39.99
2) Use alternative features on the laptop. Left click is typically simulated by tapping or double tapping the touch pad itself and right click can be simulated, in most cases, by single tapping the icon and pressing the pop-up menu button, typically located between the right alt and ctrl buttons.
3) Search for a replacement component online and replace the component. Touch pad replacement will require you to remove all casing screws from the laptop and then remove the case. You will then expose the screws and cabling for the touch pad. I can not give more detailed instructions as this varies per laptop model.

How do I eject a cd from my wife's Dell Studio notebook?? Thanks, John

There should be an eject button on one of the Function (F) keys. Usually it's F12 or something towards the right of the keyboard. Hold down the Fn button and press that button until you see an eject icon display on the desktop.
If this is not the case you can open the "My Computer" link on your desktop, right click the disc and press the eject button there.
Hopefully this helps.
