    Please try the following steps. Doing this should allow you to keep all the settings.

    1. Click the Start orb, type msconfig in the Start Search box and hit Enter. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue

    2. Within the System Configuration dialogue box, click the Startup tab

    3. Look for any entries named similar to your mouse, and uncheck the box next to them (there may only be one)

    4. Click OK and restart your computer

    5. After the restart, change your mouse pointer speed and restart

My dell says hybernating while on and hang


Hybernation is a power saving feature in microsoft windows. Often times this will cause the computer to freeze.

One solution is to disable hybernation in the power settings located inside the control panel.

On windows vista / 7 you can do this by clicking on the start button (lower left hand corner of the screen)
Then going to "Control Panel"
At the top right of the screen should be a search box, simply type "Power" Into this box and options to edit / change the power plan should appear. Choose edit power plan,
Make sure any options pertaining to hybernation are disabled, You can also adjust when the screen and hard drive shut off during inactivity. For desktops it is recommended to set all options to "Never"

Once finished click the "Save Settings" Button. and you are all set.
You can adjust these settings as much as needed, they can always be undone.

On windows 8 you can access the control panel by moving the mouse to the upper right hand corner of the screen and choosing "Settings" or "Computer Settings" the same procedures apply after this step.

The arrow in my game moves really slow and not the speed I move it so I point the arrow and it seem to crawl to where im pointing


Hey Steph, if this occurs only during the game then look for settings or options under the game menu and there should be an option to change the mouse speed. Also if you are running a game that requires a high processor it could be that your computer is just running slow because it cannot a process like that. If it occurs all the time then go to your control panel and under Hardware and Sounds click Mouse (if no Hardware and Sounds, just look for mouse settings). (PS. This is for Vista but I believe it should be the same for Windows XP and Windows 7). Under Mouse properties go to Pointer Options tab. There you should see a section called Motion and that is where you can change the pointer speed. I hope this helps Steph. Please send me a feedback if it does not. Good luck. - Joe.

Acer one with windows 7 ultimate fall into sleep mode


A laptop computer is typically set to conserve battery power. One of the common settings called standby, sleep mode or hibernation turns off power to the screen and the laptop itself after a preset time limit passes without any mouse or keyboard activity. It can be inconvenient for the computer to shut down while you're working on an open page or during a download. Change the setting if you don't want your laptop to going into automatic shutdowns

Turn the laptop computer on with the power button if it's not set to turn on upon opening. Allow the system to boot up. Open the panel for adjusting the sleep settings. This varies among the popular versions of Windows operating systems. To change the sleep mode setting on a laptop running Windows XP, click the "Start" button, and click the "Control Panel" selection. Choose the "Performance and Maintenance" selection, and click on "Power Options." Click the "Power Schemes" tab, and click the drop downs next to "Turn Off Monitor," "Turn Off Hard Disk," "System Standby" and "System Hibernates." Select "Never" for each drop down in both the "Plugged in" and "Running on Battery Power" columns. Click the "Hibernate" tab and click to remove the check mark in the box next to "Enable Hibernation." To change the sleep settings on a Windows Vista laptop, click "Start," "Control Panel," "Systems and Maintenance" and "Power Options." Then click "Change Plan Settings" under the currently established plan. Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab and select the "Never" option on the "Sleep," "Sleep After," "Hibernate After," "Display" and "Turn off Display After" drop downs. Click the "OK" and "Save Changes" buttons to confirm the settings. To change the sleep settings on a laptop running Windows 7, click the "Start" button, choose "All Control Panel Items," select "Power Options" and click "Edit Plan Settings." Click the drop downs for "Turn off the Display" and "Put the Computer to Sleep." Choose "Never" for both and click the "Save Changes" button.

Hi,

There could be numerous causes for this issue, so it may be hard to narrow down the exact problem. It could be your computer is overheating, has to many background processes running, hardware or software issue. Some laptops have battery settings that can effect computer performance. You may have the battery settings set to "power saving" which could cause it to go slow. At the bottom right on the toolbar, you should have a battery icon, if you right click that you can go into the power saving options. See what it is set to. A high performance settings will obviously increase performance but decrease battery life. Also, Windows 7 has some new graphic settings which are resource intensive, like Aero. Try lowering your Windows GUI settings and see if this helps. You can do this by right clicking on the desktop and going to Personalize. Set it to a Classic Theme and see if you see an improvement.

I wrote a couple of tech article you can read and it may help fix your issue.

It could be you just need to clean up the computer. There is a good computer clean up/optimization tool called TuneUp 10. You can get a free trial of it by clicking here.

I just bought a new Inspiron laptop, as well as a Kensington USB docking station and a Dell WM311 wireless mouse. I can't get the mouse to work at all, and can't get the docking station to work properly...


Closing the lid of most laptops sends a signal to put the machine in hibernate or sleep mode. You can either leave the lid open or change the power savings settings. In Win 7, this is in the Control Panel but can also be reached from the advanced power savings settings from the Screen Saver. Click on the desktop (anywhere without an icon or running program) and select Personalize. Click on the Screen Saver and then Change Power Settings. Then Change Plan Settings (look for the line Advanced Plan Settings and the section marked Power Button and Lid).

I don't know enough to help you with the mouse problem. I'd check the batteries for the mouse first. Then ask Dell.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Mouse freezes


I had the same problem. The following solution from 3M support fixed it. We Normally see this problem on laptop computers running Windows XP. There is a power management setting in the Device Manager, which controls the USB Root Hub. Often this setting is selected to "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". When control of the mouse is needed again, the computer is unable to turn the device back on. To remove this power management feature follow the instructions below. 1. Right click on the "My Computer" Icon on your Windows Desktop 2. Select "Properties" from the Menu 3. Click on the "Hardware" tab in the system properties window 4. Click on the "Device Manager" button 5. Click on the (+) plus sign next to "Universal Serial Bus Controller" in the Device Manager 6. Locate the "USB Root Hub" (Note: there may be more than one, and you will need to change all of them), double-click on the "USB Root Hub" to access the properties windows for that device. 7. Click on the "Power Management" tab 8. Remove the checkmark from the box containing the following option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" 9. Click "ok" 10. Close the Device Manager and all other open Windows Test the Mouse to be sure that the new settings are working. You should now be able to leave the mouse unused without it being turned off by the operation system.
