I would go to a computer repair store--they usually have old mice laying around from systems that might have been upgraded.
I would also go to stores like Goodwill to see if they have any. A used mouse can be had for maybe $3 or even free.
You say the wired are exposed on the ones you have--can you get electronic shrink tape around there so you can repair them? That would work.
Be careful of electronics that have exposed wires. They may already be ruined due to the shorting of the wires.

Why is youtube in schools?

You need to use VPN to unblock youtube. Unlike proxy which only works with certain applications, VPN encrypts your entire traffic so "man in the middle" doesn't know which websites you're visiting.

Should children be exposed to technology at all? Many schools have implemented learning through technology techniques. Wonuld not this give them a chance to misuse technology?

Learning becomes more effective with the help of technology. But it is not safe to leave the children unchecked when they have free access to technology. So parents and teachers should make sure that they are in strict supervision while using technology. Schools should go an extra mile in making this happen.

How do yoou connect a wireless mouse to your computer

Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace.

Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.

Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.

The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.

However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.

Insert batteries into your mouse.

If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.

Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse. If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.

Install the drivers for your mouse.

Reboot the computer to apply the changes.

Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware. If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Hope this helps

I teach in an elementary school computer lab. I have a lab of 37 networked Dell Optiplex computers. I am having a problem with our keyboards randomly not working. Any given student will be working in our...

I have had some similar problems with computers and using more devices than was effectively able to sustain for any extended period of time.
Computers use IRQ's or Interrupts (Like a stop light at an intersection) to allow hardware devices to work on the same IRQ. If randomly two devices or more try to work simultaneously (enter the intersection) the computer will hang. Computers only have 15 IRQ's and half of them are used for overhead.
If you go to the control panel/system -> Hardware Tab/Device manager you will be able to view all the installed hardware. You can expand the individual items and check for conflicts. Usually a yellow triangle like a caution sign on the roadway. This mostly applies to the non-USB hardware.
If you expand the USB Controllers + to a minus you will see the possible conflicts on the USP comports.
Possible solution for your IT manager:
Experiment with 2 or 3 computers and change the various boards to different slots on the mother board to correct IRQ conflicts. (Better managed stop and go lights)
For USB conflicts sometimes updating drivers can resolve that issue. Removing and reinstalling keyboards, mice, USB hubs may help reassigning these device to more compatible USB numbers.
You may be able to work out some routines that cause conflicts every time and try to avoid those combinations. i.e. opening MS Word, Browsing, and running calculator at the same time consistently causes computers to hang??? You could then plan around that.
This appears to be more of problem of random conflicts on individual programs.
Hope this helps,

Are you using your own computer, at your own home?

Are you using your employer's computer, at his/her place of business, or are you using your school's computer, at the school?

If the latter, contact the Information Technology department at your employer/school, and confirm with them that they have established a policy to block access to "time-wasting" sites like YouTube & FaceBook.

I just bought a used 2001 clicky keyboard, and the g and h keys are transposed. How do I get the caps off to fix? Thanks.

Carefully take a small knife such as a butter knife, slip it under the key and pry it up, be sure that if the key is resistant that you do not break it. kids at my old school use to do that in the computer lab all the time, immature and idiotic.
