If you have a wireless mouse, you may need to replace the batteries inside the mouse. If it is a usb or ps2 mouse (wired), you can first try removing the ball from the bottom of the mouse and making sure you clean the rollers that are inside the mouse. Using a Q-tip works pretty good to remove all the dust buildup.
Second, you can go to the control panel, under printers and other hardware, click on Mouse, and make sure the slider isn't set on 'Fast'. Set it about half way between fast and slow for better control.

I have a HP and I turn it on all lights come on the fan comes on it then blank screen set for the cursor Arrow which moves everywhere

no comptuer stated, of the 1000s made by hp from 1984 to now.
endless. list. and sub models. all very different.
what OS< ?? XP , vista, w7/8/10-??? what?
sounds like the windows login screen never gets attained right?
that means the OS is corrupted.
so if the machine has not been slammed.
and is 2006 or newer, power on and hammer the F11 key
called HP recovery.

not tell ing what PC you one or posted the full service tag data
well answers really are IMPOSSIBLE
like blind mechanic would be, reading the VIN in BRAIL.

so the screen is not dead like most old CCFL PC become.
so the BIOS key works, it tells you at power on to hit ESC to enter setup, (or what ever key it it) Getting BIOS working is, first.
in all cases. BIOS works (mostly) with HDD removed,
BIOS then can do F11 if the hDD is still good and connected.

Need the operation manuel for my 22inch Gateway monitor can't change operating language

I have a smaller sized Gateway monitor than yours, but I'm sure the monitor buttons (on the front) perform the same functions on all sizes.

You should have eight control buttons on the front of the bezel (as listed from left to right): source, menu, down arrow, up arrow, left arrow, right arrow, auto/set, and on/off buttons.

Press the menu button, the first dialog screen that appears (at least on mine) is the brightness/contrast function. The screen will show the function to be changed, and a very small picture of what screen you have in view.

Once the first function is listed on the screen, press the down arrow to access the other screens (color, tracking and set-up), each having their own little picture indicating what screen you are looking at.

Brightness/contrast - picture of half light, half dark circle
color - RGB picture
tracking - two squares on top on one another slightly off center
set-up- hand pointing left

You want the set-up screen which shows a picture (I think) of a little hand pointing to the left. Once you are in the set-up screen, press the auto/set button and the first line will be highlighted (usually it is the language choice).

Once highlighted, press the right arrow button until your language name appears (i.e., English, Duetsch, Francais, Espanol Italiano, -there is no choice on mine for Japanese, etc.).

Press the menu button again and that should do it.

How to adjust screen brightness in samsung rv509 laptop

You should be able to check the function keys (F1-F12) and one of them should have a little symbol, it will look like a sun (circle with lines radiating out from the circumference) and a little up arrow, it will probably be right next to one with the sun and a little down arrow. Press the "Fn" key (right next to the left windows key) and hold it down, then tap the "sun up" key. That will raise your brightness.

If you want to raise it permanently, go into the Power Control Options in the Control Panel and find the setting for screen brightness.

Menu screen blank and attention light is on -...

If you have any additional memory installed in the printer, remove it and then try to start the printer. Your issue sounds like a bad formatter but you will want to try performing a cold reset before you jump to that conclusion. To cold reset, turn the printer off, turn the printer on and/if the memory count starts, press and hold the checkmark button until all lights turn on. Release the check mark and then use the up and down arrow keys until the display reads "cold reset" then press the check mark again. If the memory count does not start at all them it is very possible that the formatter or the engine control board is dead. Remove the formatter cover and near the front of the printer on that side you should see a little hole, this is the engine test button. If the printer will print an engine test then it is a bad formatter for sure. You may need to remove the formatter (the main board on the right side of the printer) in order to perform an engine test.

Green mushroom house world 7

This is hard, but not impossible. lol if you are a good "wall jumper" than it's a piece of cake. You will need to be miniature Mario for this. the easiest way to be miniature mario is to go back to world 1 and level four. In that particular level there's a question mark square that has the little blue mushroom, just finish that level in miniature "mode" and go back to world 7. Why little Marion? Because little mario can jump a lot higher than any other mario can. Now, in the ghost house, right after level 1, is where you'll get the pathway to the mushroom. hit the first (and only the first, no need to worry about making mistakes and having to start over) solid brick and an orange button will appear, as you may already know. step on it (watch out for the little ghost thing) and five golden doors will appear. Enter the bottom right golden door and you'll enter a room with a bunch of white hands pointing to the location of an invisible square, but who cares?! ignore the hands and square and go straight to the jumping jack looking thing. Jump towards the right wall and "wall jump" your way to the golden door on the top. When you enter this part of the level there will be a bunch of golden coins and a blue button. Now this gets a bit tricky. hit the blue button and run immediately to the LEFT (you are short on time, so READ the entire thing first, so that you don't get lost) (not the right where you would usually go to) the bricks will form two "L"s the first one is facing the wrong way,(after passing it) an opening will be there where you will jump up and access them, stick to the LEFT "L" structure (or the L facing the correct way). Now, since you are running, you are going to have to jump up towards the wall (that's now there) "wall jump" to the RIGHT and you will SEE the golden door that you need, HOWEVER, one wall jump will not be enough and you are going to "wall jump" to the LEFT using the single square "platform" where the door is at. and when you get to the wall, you are going to have to "wall jump" to the RIGHT once more. (NOTE: if you run straight towards the wall and try to wall jump from all the way from the left, you will NOT make it, you need momentum that you can only get by running and jumping towards the wall) you will most likely over do it, but don't worry!!! slide down the wall that's above the door and just keep holding the right arrow on your controlling pad, mario will simply land on the platform without any effort. I understand that what I just said may not make a lot of sense, but once you see it, you'll know what i'm talking about. Don't get frustrated for this may take several tries. good luck.

PS if you don't know how to "wall jump" this will be very hard for you.... so get some time "wall jumping." you may already know this, but just in case....
HOW TO WALL JUMP: how do you wall jump...? well you hit jump as you hit the wall. If you can slide down a wall, you can "wall jump," all you do is basically hit the jump button and then point the arrow pad (left or right) to which ever side the wall is at. ex if the wall is on your left, you jump close to the wall and hit left on the arrow pad and jump. MArio, then. will jump to the other side off the spot you hit the controls off. you could even jump straight up slide down the wall and just hit jump.

The cursor jumps around the screen

Reposition your Wii so when you play you aren't pointing the controller toward a bright light (like a window or lamp). Bright lights freak out the controller. I have a huge window in the room with the Wii, and I have to wait until mid morning on sunny days or it's almost impossible to control.

Jumping cursor when typing

Since you have a logitech mouse, lets just disable the touchpad. You should be able to disable the touchpad via one of these methods:
  1. Look on the top row of keys. You should have one that looks like a little mouse. If you do, hold down the "fn" key in the bottom, and press the key with the mouse on it. That *should* disable the touchpad.
  2. Go to the control panel, and find the keyboard and mouse settings. Digging through the menus, you should find a touchpad. You can disable it through there.
