Why does my mouse automatically scrolls up or down on my screeen

Your mouse might be bad or you could have a virus or infection that has hijacked your mouse. Boot up into safe mode and see if the mouse is ok. Then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. When it boots up, open your internet browser and download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine. If the above steps does not fix the problem: Try another mouse and see if it scrolls.

I have a e system desktop the clock keeps running late

Computers have an internal battery on the motherboard that helpd the board retain certain data when the computer is off. If the battery is low or dead it will cause this problem. The easiest way to replace the battery is to open the side of the computer when it is off and remove the battery from the battery holder on the motherboard. The battery looks just like a watch battery. Replace it with the same kind of battery (available at most drug stores) once you have replaced it turn on your computer and reset your clock.

Stop:0x000000A5 (0x0001000A, 0x00000000,

"Stop: 0x000000A5" error message typically indicates that the computer BIOS is incompatible with the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) standard that is supported in Windows 7. However, this error can also occur because the computer hardware, the peripherals, or the drivers for those devices are incompatible with Windows 7.


Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

1. Insert the Windows 7 installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer. 2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.  4. Click Repair your computer. 5.

When i play online games why is it so slow

You are right when you say it's really slow when you play games online, 1. The Game server is accessing by you through wires and network devices, so this makes the games slow. If the game is installed in your pc, there's should be no speed problem, 2. Network bandwidth will be accumulated by the game when you run the program, so don't take tension,... we are facing the same problem and it's just normal. There's nothing different. Good luck

Where does the cable labled P7 go


I have an image for you to look at, and I will need confirmation that this is or is or is not what you are giving reference to.


As far as your issue goes, cable P7 should be marked on both the connector block, and quite possibly onto the motherboard. How many pins are on the connector? if its 4 (two rows of two) then this will plug into the motherboard, and is the Intel board supply. If it is either a 20 or 24 pin block, then this will plug into the motherboard, and this supplies your entire mainboard components with power. If it is 4 or 5 pinned, has red, yellow, and black wiring, and has two corners cut off at one side, then this is the power supply cable for a hard disk drive or CD/DVD drive.
If it is a 4 or five pins white or black block spade like connector, then this will serve a floppy, flop drive for power. If it as spade type connector with loads of pins on it, and about the same size as the hard drive and CD/DVD drive power cable as above described, then this is a SATA power cable, and will power any SATA devices. You will also notice that a SATA drive will also have a smaller complete red or black cable that is similar to its bigger SATA power supply cable. The smaller one is for data.


all of these power cables have grooves, notches or angles cut on either one side, or are shaped so that they will only fit one way. Do not try to force these into any other slot, or you may cause damage.

I hope that this is the fixya for you, and if in the meantime you have any further queries or comments, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me.

Your sincerely

Emachines won't send signal to screen, when turned on it makes one long continuous beep

The beep signifies an error. But different bioses have different beeps. You can check with the emachine site to tell you what 1 beep on the machine signifies and you can be guided accordingly. Could be bad power supply, connection, peripheral, etc
