Now look at this. This shit here:
See it? The OFF/ON pushy pully switchy thing? Nobody, neither expert nor amateur, knows why it’s there but yesterday while putting all her shit back into the bag, Orca must have accidentally – or semi consciously – switched that thing into the OFF position. 😦
No wonder then the mouse refuses to do anything, isn’t it? Anyhoo, it’s working now and life is semi-beautiful again. The cursor is still jumpy af but at least I don’t need to use that stinkin’ touchpad anymore. So I’ll try to survive the next couple days without major PC operations, like a complete reinstall or sumfink.
My recommendation still remains: Stay away from cheapo bargain basement computers, particularly if they are by Acer. Same with Lenovo, if for other reasons. Lenovo you may buy if they are ThinkPads and ThinkCentres and any continuation of the old professional IBM machines.
But no Acer whatsoever!
