How to Install a Wireless Mouse for Use With Your Laptop PC

Adapted from http://www.ehow.com/articles_3342-mice-keyboards.html

Introduction

Installing a wireless mouse for your laptop PC gives you an extra level of convenience. Using the touchpad on your laptop for long periods of time isn’t practical, but setting up a mouse and keyboard every time you unpack is a little annoying. With a wireless mouse, there’s no extra set-up once it’s installed on your computer.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Steps

Step One

_______________ (Insert) new batteries into the battery compartment of your wireless mouse.

Step Two

_______________ (Position) the wireless receiver at least eight inches away from your laptop, and between eight inches and six feet away from the mouse.

Step Three

________________ (Insert) the driver CD for your wireless mouse into your CD drive.

Step Four

_________________ (Follow) the on-screen instructions to install the mouse driver.

Step Five

_________________ (Connect) the wireless receiver to the USB port on your laptop.

Step Six

__________________ (Test) your new mouse by moving it around on your screen and clicking a few icons.

 

Overall Tips & Warnings

  • Keep spare batteries on hand so that you’re not stuck without a mouse when they stop working.
  • Save money and space by purchasing a packaged set containing a wireless keyboard and mouse. These are less expensive than buying the two separately, and they usually operate on the same receiver.
  • Make sure your laptop meets all the requirements indicated on the box before you buy a wireless mouse.
  • Some wireless peripherals don’t come with their own batteries, so you may need to buy them separately.

From the Industrial Era to the Information Age

 

(O) How can the period that followed the industrial age be characterized?  As informational.

 

1. In what way/ How do the power and functional capabilities change in the modern era?

2. Were the first information-processing centers relatively cheap?

3. Which expression/phrase is used to describe/refer to mainframes?

4. What does RAM stand for?

5.  Did all mainframes have the same amount of RAM?

6. Do you need to know more or less about computers today to be able to use them?

Key
1. At a rapid pace. / Quickly.
2. No.
3. The dinosaur machines.
4. Random Access Memory.
5. No.
6. Less.

Recent advances in technology have rapidly pushed humanity from an industrial age to a period that can be characterized mainly as informational. Computers have gradually become cheaper and more readily available. Their power and functional capabilities increase at a rapid pace. All these factors allow them to be used in practically every field of human activity. However, efficient usage of modern computers requires both advanced infrastructure and a certain level of user skill. These elements are essential to making the most of the high potential of computer hardware.
The advent of calculating devices during the industrial age was a logical stage of evolution: Science, technology, and industry require a high processing speed of intensive information flows. At first, the problem was alleviated by the creation of data-processing centers. These were based on sophisticated information-processing centers, which were very powerful (for that time) and, consequently, rather expensive. These centers were serviced, maintained, and supported by numerous highly qualified professionals. Recall the dinosaur machines of the 1960s and 1970s, known as mainframes: A typical mainframe was capable of processing 100,000 to 2 million simple 32-bit register-to-register operations per second. The amount of Random Access Memory (RAM) installed on such machines varied from several hundred kilobytes to several megabytes. Although such parameters are laughable today, they were impressive at that time.
A data-processing revolution took place about two decades ago, with the arrival of personal computers oriented toward individuals. The user-friendly interface (both hardware and software) of PCs significantly lowered the level of user knowledge and skill from that required by previous-generation computers.
