Never Ever Try To "Fix" Your Mouse

As I just tried to.

I have Apple's Mighty Mouse, which hasn't given me a second's trouble until tonight.

That's when I got the bright idea of trying to pry it open, to see if I could get the scroll thingie, to work again.

Bad move, Vic.

Now, it won't close tight, and consequently, it is practically useless, and makes navigating the web almost an impossibility.

I will have to round up my Dell mouse, until I can get another Mighty Mouse one, though I don't know where I put it...





This monumentally blows chunks, because I am therefore unable to compose my Rio Carnival 2007 post tonight.

I'll try to sort this out by tomorrow. Forgive me!

  • Hah!

    Apple products aren't meant to be fixed by a lowly consumer.

    They're meant to be accompanied to the nearest Apple store for extra wallet-lightening.

    Argh, now he tells me.

    Why didn't I think of that, huh? Guess this is where I really need a husband to say (a) stop! (b) let's take it to the Apple store.

    But already purchased one, so it's on it's way. I am using the Dell until it arrives. ;)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    It wasn't until the G3 that a lowly end user could even open a Mac without a special tool.

  • If it's a wireless Mighty Mouse you should check the batteries. Opening and closing the lid it has underneath usually does it. A wired Apple Mouse would require to unplug it and plug it again. Let me know if what you have is a Windows PC with an Apple mouse or viceversa, to see if I can find some solution for you. I use both systems -work- and I can certainly give you some pointers.
    Feel free to ask, dear....
    If you're using windows XP (pro or home) you will -unfortunatly- find that there's no much support for an Apple product. If your running Mac OS X in a Mac there are a lot of resources onlne you can consult..... Let me know....

  • Trust Apple to go from one button to no buttons.

    I see you've already bought another one or else I would have recommended a Microsoft intellimouse. It's not pretty but it works.

    It might be a good idea to keep it around in case you need something to throw against the wall.;)

  • You can't go wrong with Logitech.

  • When I worked for the American Embassy way back when mouses (I don't think mice is the plural for a computer mouse, but I'll have to look that up later) still had those little balls inside, there was a real practical joker in our office who switched out my mouse ball with one much smaller so it didn't work. I kept turning the stupid thing upside down, looking at the ball, and trying to use it again. I got him back though. I filled his chair cushion with water. Yeah, don't joke with me, I'll win! Still loving your blogs ... caroline
