  • PC peeps, lil help here

    My wireless mouse won't work on my laptop. New battries, hell the mouse is brand new. I haven't downloaded anything, just the usual amount of pr0n. My kid does something w/ her ipod w/ that port. Yes I've rebooted and no I'm not getting a Mac. I know who my parents were.

    Thanks in advance dear friends.

        Did you press the right button on the dongle?

          No software to install. The thing has been working fine for a week or so. I think it's got something to do w/ the ipod.

            I plug in the thing in the side, I get the message that the lappy 'sees' the mouse, the red light is on underneath the mouse but the pointer never moves. Settings maybe?

              If it doesn't move, does it click? What happens when you right click the desktop? You shouldn't even have to move the mouse for that.

                So, maybe something's wrong with the connection between the mouse and the dongle. Try removing batteries, and re-establishing the connection?

                I think that's as much help as I can be tonight before making a Trud joke.

                  Have you gone to the control panel and fucked with the mouse app there? Have you masturbated lately? That won't help the mouse deal, but it'll take your mind off it.

                      Is dongle a technical term? Can it be used in mixed company? Or just w/ raging homos?

                        Did you try my experiment? What happens when you right-click the mouse?

                          I fucked the mouse app, there's $20 I'll never get back, THEN flogged the dolphin and guess what, the damn thing works. My weasel AND the mouse!!!

                          Happy day in Celtyland.

                            It just started working again. Weird.

                              Chances are some driver was doing something that prevented or delayed USB initialization (hence the mouse won't move). I've seen this when an anti-virus is just starting a scan.
