Bell The Cat And Fix The PC Mouse

Author : Brock Hooton


Imagine that you are moving your mouse and the cursor that is visible on the screen is refusing to budge. Now, how frustrating is that? Whenever the PC mouse, which is an input device malfunctions, the blame is usually on the mouse itself, or the computer system or the operating system that the user is using. When a problem happens with a mouse, the problem has to be detected first and only then can it be solved. If you are not confident in handling PC input device issues, you can get the services of a tech support United Kingdom provider for assistance.

Cleaning procedure for the device

First the users have to unplug the input device and turn it over. The next step will be to twist the ring counter in a clockwise direction for being able to remove it. Now gently get the trackball inside the mouse removed. Make sure you damp a soft cloth in lukewarm water and then gently use it to clean the trackball; allow the trackball to dry completely. Dip cotton balls in alcohol and clean the rollers found inside the device. Now replace the trackball and make sure you have it in position with the retaining ring. For any help on this contact a good computer support United Kingdom provider. Alcohol may also be used for cleaning the exterior of the device.

Start fixing the issues

Plug in the mouse; if the connector is PS/2 instead of USB, note that it is color-coded green and can be inserted in a particular direction only. Ensure that the connection is firm by checking for any pins that might be either broken or bent. Now test the device functioning by rebooting your system.

If the mouse is still not working, get the input device connected to another machine and reboot the system to find out if the input device is working normally. If now the device seems to function properly, you may blame the previous computer or the operating system to be faulty.

It is also advisable to check for the device conflicts. Sometimes when the users install a device on their machines, the PC input device may not be compatible with it and start malfunctioning. You can fix things by removing the new hardware or drivers installed and then reboot the system. It will be a wise decision to avail help from the many PC support United Kingdom providers.

You can also try reinstalling the PC mouse drivers; for this, you must open Control Panel and then click on System. Now choose the tab that is labeled Device Driver and scroll for selecting your mouse. You have to get the drivers that are listed uninstalled. Now unplug the input device and reboot your system. If prompted, you can also let Windows reinstall the drivers.

If nothing works to make your mouse function as you want it to, you can ask for the services of a computer repair United Kingdom service.
