  • CSV file will not work in Excel after update of the Sierra

    Excel is not able to properly open CSV files more. I have two MacMinis to work with the same version of Excel/Office, but one with macOS Sierra displays all the data in the first column.

    Must be a problem that macOS as Sierra mess up to the deliminter. Very annoying.

    Barebones Textwrangler can force CSVs to use a standard delimiter that Office can understand.  Try to open your CSV with that and save it as MS-DOS text file.

  • The Microsoft 3500 wireless mobile mouse settings do not work.

    Original title: the mouse settings do not work.

    I had a mouse Microsoft Optical Wheel for several years and several computers.  I got the wheel button double-click on the value.  The mouse does not so I had to buy a replacement.  I found a Microsoft 3500 wireless mobile mouse, I couldn't find a wired mouse anywhere.  I downloaded the center of control of the mouse and adjust wheel double-click button.  It is not double-click.  The setting is in the program, the rest of the mouse buttons work ok, but he won't just double-click even if the program says it is how it is defined.  Windows 7 Edition home premium, door of entry DX4860.

    I guess Microsoft has known there was a problem after all, the last batch of automatic updates seems to have fixed.

  • Satellite NB10T-A-101 - mouse pad does not work

    I have a touch screen for Toshiba Satellite NB10T-A-101, the touch screen works very well but I use mostly the mouse pad I find using the slider easier.

    But recently my guarded cursor freezing for a second or two and then to spend once again, but now the mouse pad seems not working with the left and right click buttons work but not the touchpad.

    I made sure the touchpad is enabled in the mouse settings, so I don't really know what to do now.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
    Thank you


    Have Hmm you also checked the FN + F5 key combination?
    This would enable and disable the touchpad as well.

    But from my point of view, it would be possible that the touchpad module is malfunctioning.
    I m thinking about the hardware malfunction because the touchpad buttons work and just touch the touch work area module doesn't correctly.

    Usually, if the touchpad would be handicapped by any software, both; as well as the touch buttons does not work.

  • Satellite L775 - mouse pad does not work properly

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L775. I run Win 7 Home Premium. My mouse pad does not work properly. I also have a Logitech Anywhere MX wireless mouse. I tried the mouse pad to work properly with the key FN and F9, but it does not work. And you really have no idea if that turns or out of the mousepad anyway, subj for another time I guess.

    What does not work, but I have to do is to go to Control Panel then mouse option load that and just scroll the tabs without changing what each time and then close and the touch pad works. But only for this session. If I have my laptop nearby, or turn it off, I have to start throughout the whole process.

    What's past and how to fix this?

    Thank you very much.

    > What's past and how to fix this?
    After reading your ad, I still don t know what is your problem.

  • Satellite P750-136 - left mouse button does not work

    I don't understand what the problem is. My left mouse button does not work. If I put a little pressure on the Panel located under the button space then the left button of the mouse works.

    What should I do? It feels like a hardware problem, since I bought the laptop in November my laptop is still covered by the warranty.

    What you can do is to check the touchpad settings and make sure that everything is OK.
    I'm don't know if you noticed this since day 1, but if you think it is hardware problem I recommend you contact the nearest Toshiba service provider as soon as possible. Warranty will cover all repair costs.

    Sometimes when I turn on the keyboard, the mouse functions do not work. I can't left or do a right-click and node pointer does not respond. Any ideas?

    It turns out that maybe that's a physical problem. I ended up getting it exchanged and did not have problems with keyboard and mouse.

  • I need a driver/files mouhid.sys, my mouse support does not work. Please thank you!

    I need a driver/files mouhid.sys, my mouse support does not work.  Please thank you!

    Hmm, a strange thing to have disappeared.  Do you have a virus or checked for malware scanner?

    The mouhid.sys file is supposed to be in % systemroot%\system32\drivers.  You pouvez find a copy of it in % systemroot%\dllcache.  If it's not in... \drivers and is in... \dllcache, recopy the... \drivers.  (You may need to do this in Mode safe.)

    Except for the above bit of luck, there are several ways to recover.

    1. use msconfig:

    Get your installation CD or locate a copy online
    Since an administrator account, run msconfig ( -R, msconfig)
    When "msconfig" opens, select the "Général" tab and click on the button "expand file...". »
    (This will open the window to "Develop a Source of Installation file")

    Enter 'mouhid.sys' in "file to restore:
    Enter the path to the DRIVER. CAB file in the \i386 on your installation media directory.
    (or browse to...)
    Enter "c:\windows\system32\drivers" in the "save in:" entry.
    Click "expand".
    'mouhid.sys' is now where never told you develop to...

    2 use the utility auditor of system files (SFC) to check the missing files and restore them if necessary.
    You will again need your installation media and, if you have installed the Service Packs, the CD-ROM for
    the latest Service Pack, you have installed.

    From an administrator account, type: -R, sfc/scannow

    SFC calls for, first of all, your installation media, and then later the service pack CD-ROM.  If SFC wants to replace the files, leave.  If the SFC rejects your Service Pack CD-ROM, read the KB900910 Microsoft Knowledge base article.  Note that this article applies to SP2, but is also applicable to the SP3.  Just use your common sense and use SP3 where the article refers to SP2.

    If you don't have a CD-ROM Service Pack 3, or order it (U.S. / Canada , Europe, Africa , Asia or South America ) from Microsoft or download the ISO (here ) and burn it.  Be sure to Select the appropriate language if you download ISO.  Note, I recommend that you install Service Pack 3 on a CD-ROM, rather than through Windows Update so that youpouvez use SFC with success!
