How do I connect mouse to laptop

Look along the outside edge of laptop until you find the correct port to fit mouse cable, that said lap tops usually have a flat area below key board that will act as a mouse would when you slide a finger across it

2003 chevy 4.3v6 won't start when wet out

Did you change the plug wires when you changed dist. cap and rotor?? If not and you want to be sure they are the prob, wait till it's sunny outside and the truck works fine, then get a spray bottle (like an empty windex bottle or something) and put some salty water in it and spray the wires with it when the truck is running. If the engines starts to act up, sputter and what not, the wires are done for, throw em and change em. Also if it's dark enough you will usually easily see the sparks flying around the wires and all when you spray them. Coil isolation might also be the problem, but it's alot rarer than the wires. Same test procedure can be easily done here also. If both those test out good with the salty water, then it's going to be harder to pinpoint, but at least the good ol' salty water trick will work with anything related to humidity/rain and will help you size down the possible problems and areas that can be in fault.

My 2003 toyota camry on the driver side front floor matt, the carpet is wet. It is wet even though we have had no rain. and is hot.

Could be the A/C drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the cab. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, its been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the cab. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean.

Fujitsu AST12LSBCW flashing timer light no cooling

There can be two things that causes it not to cool right in humid weather..........dirty unit or low refrigerant. Clean the inside parts and the outside parts thoroughly and then try again. If it still doesn't cool or gets worse, then you know the unit is low on refrigerant.
