There should be a microswitch at each end of the movement so that the machine knows where the end is. I would suspect that one of those switches is damaged. What you are hearing is the toothed belt slipping over the gears. This needs to be repaired before the belt snaps.

Unlock laptop mouse


Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon.

If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad.

Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.


Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button.

Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.


Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable."

Your touchpad is now unlocked.

Sound card won't work


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to

reinstall drivers

click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers make sure you have selected the

(appropriate speakers) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the selected correct speaker settings there

click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it

if his does not fix the problem

click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker

volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any

further volume control settings you will need to right click on the speaker volume icon system select adjust volume


click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers select the appropriate speakers


from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand system

speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check


the speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side

you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity


clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line or use a can of compressed air specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit

dust causes static to build up in a computer

if its a desktop swap the speakers around if one still does not work its either a faulty speaker or the speaker connection

I have just connected a quill mouse to my laptop. Right and left clicks work but you can't move the pointer.


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar
click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver

click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp

in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp

hope this helps

Every time i go to my sounds and audio devices and i click it there above it says no audio device and it wont allow me to click anything like i don't know what to do :(


Frist, do have an audio device at all? Is there a mic / speaker connection on the board, or a seperate addin sound card?

If so, then you need the correct driver to access it. If it's in main board, do you have the drivewr disk that came with it? Audio device driver should be there too.
If it's an addin, find a manufacturer name and the number off the main chip. Visit the manufacturer web site, find the service and / or support area and seach for a downloadable driver for it.

No sound


Firstly check the volume is not low or muted on both windows and the speakers. In windows click the speaker icon in the bottom right of your screen, check the volume is turned up. Then click mixer or advanced and check that all volumes are turned up.
If using a laptop, check that the hotkey control for volume is on. You will see an audio icon on one of your ‘F’ keys, hold the Fn button located near the ctrl and press the volume function key.
Next open Device Manager from Control Panel and check there are no yellow exclamation marks on any drivers. If there are then you need a new driver.
If you are still having issues the sound card may be faulty, this is usually integrated into the motherboard. In a desktop PC you could buy a new PCI soundcard if you have a spare PCI slot in your machine.
You need to goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your problem. I have a list of links to most manufacturers drivers on my website.
Hope this helps,

Cannot boot or enter setup. ASUS A7V600-X


Hi,

I'm managed to fix this myself.

The system would hang at power-up, simply displaying the ASUS screen, and
I could not get into the BIOS setup at all with the usual pressing of the <DEL> key. I was completely stuck. Did this mean I needed a new motherboard?

I hoped not, so I downloaded the userguide for my particular motherboard from the ASUS US website, from another machine. Browsed through it and found where the jumpers were located on the motherboard to clear the RTC (Real Time Clock) and system settings on the CMOS chip. This meant: removing the battery on the motherboard; moving the jumpers to clear the CMOS settings; waiting a few seconds; moving the jumpers back; reconnecting the battery; rebooting. And hey presto! I could get back into the BIOS set up, where I then had to set the correct date and time, and the processor speed once more. And then a final reboot, letting it go all the way to load the OS in full.

I'm back...

MS-1036 doesnt sense power cord attached


You hit exactly on the head with don't move the unit when plugged in - there are many people with the MS-1036 having this problem if you search the web. MSI does cover the bare-bone itself, however this falls into that damaged not defective area. Many shops would replace the entire board, making it costly as looks you had done once already. Good idea is to look to Asus 17" bare-bone and move your items over, much better made. Citrus Micro - see you worked with them, so have I, always had good luck with them, they make great contact and sometimes too honest, prices are great to - like any etail store with returns, manufacturer warranty tells most etail stores how they are to handle things. Could be why you see them getting rid of selling MSI products? Looks like you found the best idea, take to walk in repair shop - hard to beat that or again, buy new bare-bone.
