There could be a number of problems why this is happening, first try replacing the mouse itself, this may be the primary problem, second try defragmenting the harddrive to clean up the deleted file holes. If you have a system diagnostisc program run a test on the mouse to see if it gives you any errors. Also try updating the mouse driver of your manufactor. But I suggest investing in a new mouse. If this is a laptop then the mouse pad may be intermittenly causing you some problems, try using a external mouse like a USB type and see if the problem persists.

After a city power outage, when I boot up my PC with a ABIT-AG8 motherboard, I get two short alarm sounds and then the PC shuts down again.

It's HIGHLY likely that your power supply has bit the dust. Replacement power supplies range from $25-$200 (depending upon the wattage and number of outputs). Replacing them is fairly easy and instructional videoes on YouTube are likely numerous. It would take a fairly skilled person less than 20 minutes to change one. If you need further assistance with this let me know.

from the off position, turn on, continuously hit the F8 key to force the startup menu, select last known good configuration and reboot. If this does not work, do the F8 thing again, and select safe mode. If you cannot reboot, you will have to do a clean reinstal using your factory recovery CD. If you can get into safe mode, immediately start saving your files to whatever media device you can.

go to start/run and type cmd and hit enter - type in chkntfs /c e and hit enter, reboot. This will start and system checking procedure on bootup. Again, if this does not fix things you will have to boot from your recovery CD.

Good luck!

My playstation 3 just started freezing up. It comes on and tries to find network but then just sits there. I can move the cursor over put as soon as i click on something it stops again and will not turn...


your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down.

If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:

To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on.

Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.

If the freezing continues after taking the above step, you can follow the link below as a guide on how to fix the problem.

Good luck
