I had some fault with my Primary Master Hard Drive yesterday again. it did a disc Scan and deleted a few faulty files. Then after some time it was not booting up fully. I managed to hit Delete and the Hard Drive was showing OK. it booted up to where I have to Click my name and my Mouse seemed to Freeze - the Arrow - Cursor was stuck.
I have now swapped my Primary Master as Primary Slave and made my Clone Hard Drive as Primary Master so that when it booted up it would check any Faults in my Primary Slave and sort it out. But my Mouse will not budge the Cursor. I have a wired Mouse & Keyboard. I have tried the Mouse in all six USB Slots - 4X USB 2 and 2 X USB 1.1 nither worked. I have also used another two Keyboards & Mouse. The Keyboards work. But the Mouses don't. When I Hit Delete on Boot Up the two hard Drives are showing as OK.
Can anyone please Help!!
I have Windows XP Pro OS with SP3. The latest XP Pro.
You could try this - turn on MouseKeys by pressing Left ALT + Left Shift + Num Lock at the same time. Please note that this only works with the LEFT alt and shift, as if you try it with the right side, it will not work.
Here are the controls, provided that you have a numeric keypad, to run MouseKeys.
2 = Move Down 8 = Move Up 4 = Move Left 6 = Move Right 7 = Move Diagonally Top Left 9 = Move Diagonally Top Right 1 = Move Diagonally Bottom Left 3 = Move Diagonally Bottom Right 5 = Simulate Mouse Single Left Click (+) = Simulate Mouse Double Click (-) = Simulate Mouse Right Click (*) = Simulate Both Mouse Buttons Click At Once
I have never had to do this myself, so no guarantee's I'm afraid.
You're right, I am OAP and can't get it always right. hahhaha!! Age is catching up with me too.
Lets start all over again. Now where was I. Hold on let's put on my Thinking Cap. Got it. My memory back that is. I remind my self of my PC, Memory loss.
All the conversation is about MY PC. It's my PC that's has the Mouse Problem. That's why I'm on my Apple Mac. I have my PC on the other table next to me. I work mostly n my PC. My Grandkids made me buy this iMac. It's so different from MY favourite PC. It will take me ages to get used to this Thingy, iMac.
