I am experiencing some worrying issues with my Corsair Vengeance M90 Gaming Mouse. The LED logo on its back does not light up anymore, and only two LEDs that function are profile 1 and 6, but only together. Right now I can only use it as a regular mouse (right and left click, drag and move) and nothing else. Everything is updated, I have unplugged it and plugged it back, tried it on my laptop… nothing. What is going on? Is the mouse broken or is it a software problem?

The SD Card Reader on my XMG P306 Laptop is behaving weirdly. When I put the SD card in the slot, I see all the thumbnails of all the picture in the card with no issue. However, when I try to actually open a picture, copy it or interact with it in any way, I can’t. I get an error saying that there is no card in the system. Is this a problem of the SD card or of the Card Reader?

I had to replace the screen on my Acer Aspire One ZH9, but I could not find an exact spare because the original had a CCFL screen (backlit). I decide to settle on an LED screen (also backlit) and got the corresponding converter cable. The converter cable fits perfectly, but the new screen doesn’t work. I tried without cable as well, to no avail. I am at a lost to what to try next. Are there any avenues I can try? Could it be a software problem?

Hello. I own a Compaq 15-a003sa laptop, and I am experiencing some issues with the screen. Most of the time it works fine, but then suddenly lines appear all over it when I move the mouse. It doesn’t happen every day, but maybe 3 times a week. It still worries me, however. What could be the problem? What could I do to fix it?

What are the vitals safety precautions for an armature computer hardware engineer to take when building a computer motherboard? I am a third year student studying Compute Engineering and I would like to build a motherboard. Can I get a professional advice on what vital precautions I critically do have to take note of as I begin? Thank you.

I am trying to repair my aunt’s laptop, a Toshiba Satellite L500. The device seems to be in working order, except that the screen remains black. There is no response whatsoever. I tried to connect it to my desktop monitor, but to no avail. I tried to repeat the process after taking out the two RAM sticks, but the situation didn’t change. What should I try next? Is there any hope for it?

I was working on my Fujitsu Lifebook when I started noticing that the touchpad was not working properly. It started to lag, and the situation didn´t improve after restart. I tried plugging in my parent´s wireless mouse, but the computer does not even detect it. I am unsure what to do. What could the problem be? Is there a correlation between the two?

Hello. I want to update the RAM sticks on my Asus Rampage 4 motherboard. I am unsure of which of the following options will be better:

1.   Two 8GB sticks of RAM, thus allowing me the option of upgrading it further

2.   Four 4GB sticks of RAM, thus giving me a quad channel RAM,

Which option would you recommend? Are there many advantages to a quad core RAM? Is it even worth it to expand a 2x8GB RAM?

I am experiencing a weird issue with my internet browsers and mouse. Whenever I want to select a word or some text on either IE or Chrome, the mouse will refuse to do it. I can click links or interact with the browsers, I just can’t select any text. When I do it on any other program, the mouse selects text fine, just not on both my browsers. I tried restarting the computer, unplugging the mouse, searching for new drivers, reinstalling the mouse. Nothing. I am very confused. What could I try next?

I finally arranged a home office in my apartment, thus having to move my desktop from the living room to the new space (short distance, no bumps). I obviously had to disconnect everything, and reassemble the computer-monitor-printer workstation again. The problem is that the monitor is not working. I know I plugged in all correctly (I even have each slot and cable labelled). The computer starts with no problem, but the only response from my monitor is the tiny power LED indicator. What could the problem be? What could I have done wrong, when the setting is exactly the same?
