Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Sigma optical mouse and my neighbour through the wall has recently bought a different remote mouse for their pc. Every time I use my pc at the same time as them there seems to be a conflict with the mouse and their mouse seems to override mine on my pc. Is this possible that my remote mouse can be picking up their signal? And if so how do I get around this (apart fom using a standard mouse)?

Quite possible. As your mouse (from my research, anyway) doesn't have any way of changing the wireless signal channel or frequency, you may find it easier just to opt for a new mouse. To ensure it doesn't conflict, you may also want to think about getting a bluetooth mouse (and a bluetooth dongle if needed) rathe than a conventional wireless one.

After rebooting my cpu my mouse stopped working. My cpu does not recognize my mouse? The mouse works because i tried it on a different cpu. what can be causing this?


Did you try to reboot?
Do you have an optical mouse? (if yes: is the red light on?
(Then the mouse is recognized and you must configure your mouse options)
Did you try to connect your USB mouse to another connector?
Or if PS2 connector: Turn of the pc and connect the mouse and power on.
Did you install a new driver? (then uninstall this driver)
Try looking for the most recent mouse driver on the manufacturer site.

How do you buy a Bluetooth Mouse?


<p>Bluetooth wireless mouse is still a very popular choice, especially for laptop users and travelers. It gives you the freedom of cable and Bluetooth connectivity. See how to buy. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Make sure your computer has a built-in Bluetooth receiver to detect the Bluetooth mouse. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Check if your mouse supports Bluetooth 2.0 or higher technology. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Meet different tracking technologies and differences. A mouse is old-fashioned mechanical mouse, a tracking ball on the bottom. This function allows the rollers inside the mouse to move. A new version of the same technology, optical mouse sensors. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Understanding optical mice. An optical mouse uses a beam of light that is controlled by an optical sensor to detect motion. Unlike the mechanical mouse, which requires little maintenance and no risk breaking parts. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. More information about a laser mouse. It is the most advanced tracking technology and is a progression of optical mouse. Unlike the broad beam of an optical mouse, laser mouse uses a narrow beam of light sharp. For you, this translates into higher accuracy. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Consider the number of mouse buttons have. Typically, the two buttons. Some offer more advanced mouse buttons, which can be programmed for specific actions. <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. They prefer a mouse with a scroller. This makes navigating through pages much easier. <br /> <p><br /> <p>8. Consider the size of the mouse. If you are a frequent traveler, choose a little mouse that is easy to carry. <br /> <p><br /> <p>9. Get opinions from online guides such as Epinions or My Simon. <br /> <p><br /> <p>10. Compare prices of your local retailers and online stores. Many online stores offer Bluetooth mouse at a lower cost. <br /> <p><br /> <p>11. Online trust an online store or you can place your order directly to the site of the brand you choose. <br /> <p><br /> <p>12. You can also buy from a local store. <br />

HP Optical Mouse Curser jumps around


I respectfully disagree with amusedgeek. He is correct aout the textured surface,though.Optical mice will take snapshots many times a second and reposition the cursor according to where the pattern was last. Rather than a single color, a pattern is your best bet for an optical mouse. The only thing I recommend is to make sure the mousepad isn't reflective at all- no glossy or semi-glossy surface. You want it to be non-reflective. Just to be sure there is nothing wrong with the mouse, you can test it simply by putting it on a newspaper and scrolling around.

I recently bought a Compaq Wireless Desktop w/Optical Mouse (Gry/Sil) at a yard sale and did not recieve the instalition cd where can i download the program at online so i can use it on my computer


As long as you have the wireless reciever and the mouse, and a fresh pair of batteries theres no reason why it should not work. Its simply a plug and play device.

In fact, I wouldnt be surprised at all if Logitech manufactures their mice for Compaq and sticks the Compaq name on it instead.

Power cords and mice you can pickup at almost any computer supply place. The power cord should be no more than $5, and basic optical mouse can be bought for $10 -15. I have one of these machines and I think they are 2004 - 2005 vintage.

Bought an optical mouse today when i turn off the computer it still stays lite. how do i fix this.item #81250NS


The model of mouse (SAKAR 81250NS) you have has fancy external lighting, but should get its power from the computer's PS2 port , so unless the mouse has its own internal battery for keeping itself lit up, your computer is not actually turning off, but perhaps just going into power save mode. I am not that familiar with that mouse brand, but to check if it has its own internal battery, shut down the computer all the way and then unplug the computers power cord. If the mouse still is lit up, then your computer is not the problem.

A code for 27inch 700 wheels for sigma bicycle computer needed


Dear spinnerrr

  • Multiply the wheel diameter in mm or cm by 3.14.
  • Measure the distance travelled in one complete turn of the wheel.
this is the four digit number you are looking, it should be between 2145 and 2149
