Trackball Explorer Jumpy After Using Usb To Ps2 Converter


I have this 1-yr old microsoft trackball explorer 1. 0. It was doing great, until recently i needed a mouse for my other computer. I used the usb-to-ps2 converter on this trackball, and i think it messed it up inside. The mouse cursor is now jumping around and becomes "unplayable". It says it's ps2/usb compatible on the bottom of the mouse. I use the latest mouse driver from microsoft and cleaned the trackball. I wonder is there a "fix" available?

3.5 Mm To Usb Converter

I am looking for something like this :

I saw it comes with these headphones :

http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=n82e16826265067

The reason why i want it is because on the new 13" mbp it doesn't have a microphone input on it just a headphone output. And windows vista on it recognizes the built in microphone but for some reason, any of my other programs won't (common problem looked up, other peoples' skype won't work, and my ventrilo doesn't recognize my microphone). I am just looking for the adapter because, i don't really want that headset because the mic doesn't detach from those headsets. So yeah.

Mic To Usb Converter Headphones

I recently bought a sennheiser 350 which has a mic, unfortunately for my sound card, it only has a digital line in/mic jack which is shared. I am already using the digital line in jack so there is no room for my mic to be plugged in. Enabling the mobo sound-card causing some weird sound issues to make the mic work. So i am wondering if any of you know a good mic to usb converter or some sort of y adapter to share the two. Thanks in advance!

Game Port To Usb Converter

After looking though some past joystick posts, i believe this is the correct forum for my question, sorry if i get it wrong; new to these boards. The problem:
I have an old (windows 98 era) microsoft sidewinder 3d pro joystick. My system does not have a gameport(sound is onboard motherboard). I have a gameport-to-usb adapter that was lent to me(unknown: manufacturer, driver requirements, system requirements). There is a new device under sound, video, and game contollers in the device manager that wasn't there before. I'm dead positive its the adapter. Its called unknown device( properties tab: no drivers installed, details tab: device instance id is rootmedia

Connect Parallel Print Server To A Usb Printer Using Converter Cable

Can you connect a parallel print server to a usb printer using some kind of parallel to usb converter cable? I have recently bought a new printer, which has a usb interface on it. But in the past, i've been using a printer with a parallel interface. I have been using a print server with a parallel port on it to connect to my old printer (which has the parallel interface) but obviously, i cannot connect this print server to my new printer, simply because it has a usb interface. Therefore, my question is, if i buy a parallel to usb converter cable and connect my new usb printer via the converter to the print server, will it work?

I'm looking to control which computer can send data to one of my monitors. I use dvi cables, and would like something nice but not too costly!

It's a logitech set with wireless and i believe a wired option - any ideas short of popping the logitech wireless donggy back and forth (which isn't horrible).

Get Internet On Ps2 - Hook Ps2 Up To Laptop

Hello, here's my situation. I have a laptop in my room connected to the internet by a wireless card. What i want to do is hook my ps2 up to this laptop so i can get internet on the ps2. My hub is in the basement, so i was wondering if there's a way to change the settings on the laptop to produce a signal to go out one of the network ports on the laptop to the ps2?

I have windows xp. I would do a search on this topic, however, i have no idea what you would call my situation.

Ide To Sata Converter

So, i'm going to install as many drives as i can in my machine. Right now since my last upgrade, i have about 10 ide drives just laying around. I came across these ide to sata converters and had a few questions:

1) has anyone here used a converter such as this? If so, any problems?

2) what would be the pros/cons for using one of these?

3) are there any other sites that you would personally recommend for this converter as opposed to what i linked above? I'd rather purchase from a company that others have used than one i haven't heard of. Also, a question, not necessarily regarding this converter:

When a hard drive is connected, but not necessarily being accessed, does it still draw quite a bit of power from the power supply, or is it minimal? In other words, i have a 560w power supply, and wanted to make sure adding the max number of drives wouldn't draw too much on the psu. (Think my max for this motherboard is 6 sata + 4 ide). But then again, i know i have other components that do use quite a bit of power, so may decide to upgrade my psu at some point, but figured i'd at least inquire.

Cable Converter Box

We are in the market for a cable converter box for our not-cable-ready tv. This is for our kitchen tv and is the only one of our three tvs still connected to the roof antenna. The customer support person at comcast (my cable service provider) is useless. All she wants us to do is rent a box from them. I am quite miffed at their abuse of power. Technologically there is no reason why we can't own the box. I would replace the kitchen tv with a cable ready unit before we would rent a box from them. For this tv we don't need all of the digital channels - just the basic cable. The converter box in our family room uses a scientific atlanta explorer 2100 which we rent from comcast. They are available from ebay, but none of the offers assure compatibility with any service. What are our options?

Power Cord Converter

I have an old dv1000 series laptop. Purchased a new 90w ac adapter that came with a little adapter to larger size plug to the smaller tip that came on the original ac adapter. Tip has broken off. Where can i get a new plug adapter? I can see them in the pictures for many other items, but never a a separate product (i.e. : http://www.Shopping. Hp.com/product/computer/categories/ac_adapters/1/accessories/er691aa%2523aba see lower right of image)

The ac adapter is fine. Only the small plug interface piece has broken. It seems a tad ridiculous to buy a new ac adapter for the loss of such a small and replaceable part.

Free Video Converter For Youtube

Ive tryed downloading at least 5 video converters, but they all either have a watermark on, or they cant be longer than 5 minutes? I make youtube videos, but i use my phone to record them as its really good quality, but it comes on as mp4 and you cant upload mp4 videos onto youtube so i need to make them into wmv or wma. So what is a free video converter, that doesn't have watermark, and your videos can be longer than 5 minutes.
