The Causes of Erratic Computer Mouse Behaviour

The usual suspects when dealing with erratic computer mouse behaviour are different for windows computers compared to Linux, because windows computers can show these signs from being infected with mal-ware{viruses,Trojans.worms and the like} while Linux or Apple computers usually only suffers these erratic mouse behaviour from hardware problems like dirty mouse contacts or settings are to low or to high in the mouse configuration settings in the control panel.

The Trackball mouse needs occasional cleaning, underneath the ball there are small contacts, that can get lint and dirt stuck in between and cause erratic behaviour, cleaning can be done with the device unplugged,then use q-tips and alcohol to clean out the contacts,then I like to dry mine after ward with a hair dryer just do not let it get to hot switch every 10 seconds or so between cold and hot should do a good job drying the mouse out. Sometimes the mouse is just worn out try another mouse if you have a spare to see if it has the erratic cursor movements too, if not your original mouse needs replacing.

Non trackball mice usually have a ball underneath with a lock down plate that unscrews counterclockwise to take off to clean inside clean these the same as above method with alcohol q-tips and a hair dryer then turn the computer back on and give it a test if it fails you will be needing a new mouse. Computer tips like this will keep your mouse running better and lasting longer saving you some money.

Erratic mouse behaviour  from Malware or Spyware on a pc, the best computer tips is to  1- run your anti-virus software and your  2- Anti-malware program like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware,  3-  Also check with other malware or antivirus scan tools like free online scans because more then one tool is needed to clean and prevent infections on a Windows PC.

How to computer tips to remove malware and viruses free online for any computer there are two sites that will let you upload files and check them with many scan tools at once they are 1- VirusTotal  and 2- Jotti they limit the size of the files you can scan VirusTotal limit is 64 megabytes  as of 8-27-2013 2- Jotti has a limit of 25 megabyte. The two sites listed above can also scan urls a website for Malware or links so you can find out if its safe before putting it on your computer.

Fast Running Clock In Linux

Problems in Linux with the clock running fast can have many things direct as the cause, like Linux kernel bug a bad cmos battery maybe even the processor but what if its something easy and uncommon well that’s what I found the case to be with a  Abit NF-M2S Motherboard Running Zorin 7 64 bit O/S.

What I found to be the problem was the cmos jumper was in the wrong position,
and usually this position will be to reset the cmos or clear it, most of the time this position will not allow booting yet on the machine it did but with the clock
having erratic speeds and the seconds would jump all over.

Repositioning the jumper and then rebooting set the clock to normal, just goes to show you that even small things can cause strange behaviour.

Setting up Printers in Linux

Setting up printers in linux is really easy and you can also add utilities that check printer functions as well, sometimes all is needed is plug your usb printer in then check under control center in the menu area and go down till you see printers then click on printers if your unit is off it will show paused and off.

Sometimes you need to set it up in CUPS in your web browser type localhost:631 then when you get there click on admin then add printer if your printer is not shown.
This is the area where you can add wireless printers or network printers make sure you find the drivers if you need them like an Epson printer XP 400 install then go into CUPS to set it up.

Utilities for printers under linux are available too in Software Center for HP printers and Canon and for Epson you will want stylus-toolbox it will let you know ink levels for older printers and ones with no display built in like XP 400 has this built into its display for you to check stats and setting up Wi Fi.

so you must uninstall prior versions of wine and other wine varients before installing

then it will uninstall the program.

Install Netflix Desktop for linux go to the terminal type in

Test your video card the easy way

Hi everyone, the best and one of the most easy ways to test any video card is by using a live Linux dvd or cd, the reason being is that if the live disk boots up well and runs programs like firefox and youtube videos fine then the video card is fine,but if the disk will not play any videos( long as its a newer live linux  disk) the video card has a problem.

Video cards that have major issues will usually not even boot up correctly with a linux live disk.

Make sure before you run this test that your computer bios is set to boot from a cd or dvd first this will be in your boot options moving the devices up or down sometimes is done by using the plus or minus keys or at the bottom of your screen will tell you how to move a device.

Burning a ISO is the way to make your own Live disk in windows you can use imageburn or imgburn, linux  you can use xfburn.

When your computer will not power on correctly

Power issues with your computer will cause strange things to happen,like reboots,or will not come on at all or even usb issues and the inability to install a operating system correctly.

The power supply is easy to remove and replace it usually has just four screws holding in place on a desktop unit they are in back  on most computers,
and on the inside you have a large plug that powers the motherboard its a 20 or 24 pin white or black connector press the tab down on the side to release and pull straight up,
then look for a 4 pin white or black connector with a tab on the side push that one in and pull straight out, also not all computers have this one.

The four pin white or black connectors called molex connectors do not have tabs on the side you just pull them out, they are tight so you may have to wiggle them a bit by holding on the plastic tight and wiggle and pull till they come out,do not pull on the wires itself, they may come loose.

The four pin white molex  or black connectors power the hard drive, cd and dvd drives,if there are any black thinner ones they are sata power connectors for sata drives
the wider ones are ide drives on older computers.

When your computer will not power on correctly
Power supply testing device can be as cheap as $15 at computer supply sites this is very easy to use just plug all the connectors from your power supply into this tester,
then plug the power into the back of the power supply then turn it on, the power should light up all the leads on the device and your fan should be turning the one in back of the unit and the bottom it it has two fans on it, the power that most often
goes out in my experience is the -5 volts.

What to check when your laptop monitor won't come on

Sometimes when you turn on a laptop. either the monitor stays black or its white with no picture. the things to check are the video and the can do this check by hooking up a external monitor.

On the side of your laptop there is a VGA connection that is usually blue with about 15 female connection holes that fit inside a monitors 15 pin VGA male end.

Once your external monitor is connected you start with you laptop off then as soon as its started use the function key on your laptop the one with fn on it then also hold down the key on your laptop that has a square or rectangle on it that means its for switching to a external monitor, when the switching is done your laptop will show
up on the external and if it looks good your problem will be in the display, if you never get a picture then either you did not do the fn monitor switch keys right or the video in your laptop is dead or even the motherboard it also could be
an inverter inside the screen case or the tubes, maybe even the display itself, inverters are very cheap replacement items for laptops and are usually the cause for these problems, so I start off with this.

The bulbs inside laptops can go also they are cheap to replace but are very fragile so it makes replacing these more difficult.

The new replacement screens for laptops can be pricey and then you have the labor charge also unless you do the job yourself.

Install Windows and Linux on separate Hard Drives

The easy way to duel boot Windows and Linux is to install them on separate hard drives. In the first step make sure your bios of your motherboard is set to boot from cd first check with the manufacture to see what keyboard key to press to enter the bios or setup, you can also check your monitor at boot up near the bottom for a message like press delete to enter setup or press F10 for setup, then when you are in the bios setup go to boot options then make sure cd is listed first sometimes you move an item up or down by taping your plus or minus key. The first operating system you want to install is Windows because Linux will see this at Install time and create you a duel boot menu usually called a grub menu, this is where you get to pick which operating system you want to boot up to. After Installing Windows for a security measure unplug the power from the hard drive you installed Windows on that way you will not accidentally erase any data on it installing Linux. When Linux is about half way installed, plug your windows power cable back in so it can detect it in the background before it completes installing and add your boot menu. That about as easy as it gets plus your operating Systems will have their own hard drives.

What to do when your pc mouse acts strange

The most common problems when a computer mouse acts strange is 1- it needs to be cleaned, the contacts inside can get loose dirt and lint inside internally and cause strange behaviour. The next set of problems can occur if your mouse hardware itself is bad like jerky mouse curser, mouse curser flashing or no curser at all, these can occur if the mouse is dirty too so its best to shut down your computer and clean it good, just make sure its dry before you turn it back on. The 2nd problems can occur when a PC that is using windows O/S shows the above signs from Malware such as Trojans, Viruses, Worms and other types of malware like Rogue software [a software that pretends to be something else, like a free security program or a free registry cleaner. The 3rd area that can cause strange mouse behaviour, is from bad pc software so if your mouse started to act strange right after you down loaded and installed a new game, it just might be the one that's causing your problem so just do a un-install of the newest program and see if your pc returns to its normal state.

When Linux Won't Install

There can be many reasons why linux will not install correctly like a bad cd or dvd a bad hard drive a bad optical drive or one thing that will cause errors and other strange behavior is bad system memory. I recently was working on a new install that had a few of these issues the dvd drive was bad so I replaced it and still came up with errors saying it could be the cd/dvd drive or the hard drive, this error came right after the area settings where you would pick your destination from a map then input your user name and password, I already did a test on the hard drive so I knew it was ok. At the beginning of a install from the Pinguy 12.04 dvd there is an option to test your memory, so I did and both sticks of ram was bad,I replaced the memory and then Pinguy was able to install correctly. Computer memory that is bad can cause very strange behavior so it is best to do a scan on it first, the scan will save you a lot of time and headaches and will only take around 15 minutes to show a bad stick usually.

Linux Pinguy Basics

Linux is installed usually from an ISO, an image disk of the operating system. this ISO has to be burned onto a dvd with a program for burning that has an ISO option such as Brasero for Linux which has the ISO option, or if you are using windows imgburn is free and has the ability to burn a ISO. Linux can be used or tested without installing it on your hard drive if you use a Distro(version of Linux) that is a live Disk that way you can try it without taken any risk. I am working on a full set of basic video tutorials that cover Pinguy 12.04 O/S on my youtube channel as of 2-25-2013 I have two uploaded that covers 1- updating your system and software 3 different ways and also wallpaper settings with Webilder. 2- I cover installing and removing software. In the first video there is a fourth way to update that I forgot to mention it is updating through the Terminal using the command sudo apt-get update then hit your enter key and it will update your system and software this command terminal way.Brasero can be installed through your software center in Linux and Imgburn if you have windows can be downloaded from Imgburn my youtube channel is larrydmi

Some commands work with linux and windows

These two commands are two of the most useful and work with Windows and Linux, they are the copy and paste commands control key and c will do a copy if the text is highlighted or selected then in another word document you can paste this with control key and the v key for the paste function. These can be very handy to speed things up and are easy to remember c for copy v for paste, now I admit why its not control p I don't know but think of it as the paste command as a vacancy spot waiting for your copy to fill it up and you will remember it.

Install Linux Even If Your Cd/Dvd Drive Don't Work

Sometimes a computer device will just go bad,like cd/dvd drives then usually you cannot install a new Operating System because they require a dvd drive or cd drive,not any more with a piece of software called Unetbootin. Unetbootin allows you to install with your usb thumb drive or flash drive as they are sometimes called, just download unetbootin for your O/S like windows then install from the download, after its installed make sure your flash drive is plugged into a usb port then run the software, pick your linux iso you want to download such as linux mint then you are ready, select the O/S say Linux Mint then select the drive the usb is in say G: drive then install after picking your iso reboot and you will boot up into Linux mint the example in this lesson then just pick install from the desktop or just run the live linux version without effecting your hard drive. You can pick to install along side windows or use the whole hard drive, then you will have a new o/s installed without a working cd or dvd drive.
Install linux even if your cd/dvd drive don't work
To get unetbootin just go to Unetbootin its free and works with many utilities also such as SystemRescueCd, don't let that non working cd/dvd drive stop you from installing or trying a new O/S again.
