Re: Sick of politics here? Fix my computers!

for a blown cap, all you'll see (typically) is a little bulge at the top... instead of being flat, it'll be rounded and pushed up a bit, you do need to actually look at each capacitor and not just glance at the board to see it.

Re: Sick of politics here? Fix my computers!

For what it's worth -- it seems the new power supply is working. I stress tested a bit and did some things that crashed it before. Once exams are over Ill give it a really strong stress test. Just in case anyone was wondering.

Re: Sick of politics here? Fix my computers!

What is the model you have? Initial thought is something's jarred loose in the receiver. However, do you have any other USB devices you can plug into that USB port? Have you tried the receiver in another USB port?

Generally you have one of two options.

1) take the receiver apart and fix the loose connection which will most likely lead to...
2) buy a new mouse

Re: Sick of politics here? Fix my computers!

How old are the batteries?
Has it worked before and you just started having problems? If so change the batteries out if you have extras.

If not, have you looked at the settings for the mouse in your control panel? and is it a specialized mouse, or just a standard 2 button wireless mouse?

What's the advantage of a wireless mouse beside not having the wire in the way?

I would say mainly not having the wires and the flexibility to use the mouse from more than one place easily. Now if it is optical or laser, then it definitely moves smoother and over multiple surfaces (not glass so much). Not really positive of the difference between the laser and optical, but I assume that the laser has more precision.

Somewhat off topic, but I just installed these wireless usb to vga adapters in my conference rooms (wireless projection). They work exactly as advertised and are very cool little gadgets for cheap.

Yep; sometimes I'll lightly run my fingers across the top or even along the sides if I can to feel for any bulging.

Cheap for a commercial setting yes.

Ummm, no. Moving and click speed acceptance are managed by either the Operating System's controls or by the software installed for the particular device (if you go that route).
