Today I had experience of a very negative emotion, when suddenly the scrolling wheel of my mouse stopped to work. In no way it has been related to miniBB, or otherwise. I could be sure miniBB couldn't affect your mouse wheel to stop working :) It's the description of a generic issue with a mouse.
So, I own a Logitech mouse, I've used it for years and got very tied to it. And mouse wheel is probably the invention of most comfort I ever experienced with a computer mouse, besides of the left-right button interface.
I understood this loss makes my further work very ineffective and it would took more longer time, than if I worked with the wheel.
Searching the Internet didn't give much of result. Most recommendations are about changing mouse properties under the Control Panel -> Mouse on Windows, incl. the Scrolling tab change. This didn't help. Then I've thought it could be a physical damage of the mouse because of a wrong touch or something.
I decided then to plug off the mouse's cord, screw off the back panel of the mouse, which is very easy and just needs to find the proper screwdriver. I've used this mouse for years with no problem, and only cleaned its ball from time to time, because the interface allows to do it simply and quickly. Now imagine what I discovered inside of the mouse
(click the picture to enlarge):
Wow! Kind of someone's pubes
were there. I've used a safety match to clean all the shit up, and then discovered the dirt was the reason of a small spring fallen down from its borders. It should look like this in final
; I was having the end #2 stuck down:
If you have the same (I'm mostly sure all wheel-based mouses have something similar), put it back and fix
carefully. That the thing, which fixes the sensor of the wheel. If the spring falls down, the wheel will still rotate and even could be pushed down, but it will not fix the scrolling points.
Finally, this was the delicious cocktail I've got from the mouse up:
Now touching it I'm getting the feeling of touching the fresh and dry pussy. Ready for the next years to work :)
Hopefully that helps somebody in solving the similar problem.
