Hardware Problems

 
 

Here are some hardware problems that I've encountered recently and their solutions.

Fans

PC starts making a strange noise.

Mouse

Mouse pointer sticking. Pointer will go up and down and to the right ok, but has trouble moving to the left.

Using a plug converter to plug a serial mouse into a PS/2 port causes the keyboard to fail and the mouse not to work. Removing the converter shows that the keyboard is still not working.

Network

After installing a new network card Windows XP detected the card but came up with a "Data invalid" error and wouldn't install the drivers.

Sound

No sound coming from computer.
