I mostly lurk here, though I post occasionally. I have learned to do some simple things for myself and make better decisions about computer-related matters.
I've had one problem for quite a while, though I never got around to posting about it. My optical mouse has been giving me a ton of trouble. It would just go "dead" every once in a while. I tried a second optical mouse and it, too, behaved this way. I would usually just give up and turn the computer off for a while. It seemed to be happening more and more often and interfering with my board responsibilities.
I read my computer manual but couldn't find any helpful tips.
Quite a while back someone had recommended Leo Laporte's PC Help Desk and I ordered it. Finally, I got that out today and it is great!!! It is pretty much at my computer literacy level and offered a bunch of carefully sequenced sugggestions.
My mouse connects to a USB port. I unplugged it and plugged it into another USB port and all has been well.
I don't recall who recommended this book, but I am eternally grateful =)
