Actually I've seen it happen quite a bit, so he's not incorrect.

I am testing it now and it seem to be fixed.........never knew there were batteries in the keyboard. My husband took care of those details, and since he passed away 8 months ago, I have had to do these things on my own. Thanks for your help.

My past MS wireless keyboards/mice had reset pinholes. Other manufacturers may have buttons. Makes no difference as either does the same thing. As to stating USB hole vs port, IMO stating "hole" was more user friendly than stating "port". It may not be technically correct, but who cares as long as the point gets across easily.

Maybe you are too young to remember people posting "Where is anykey"? Techies may think its funny, but non-technical people where being serious in their inquiry.

From my point of view you may be. Or maybe not. Not many people remember using chip installers in order to do memory upgrades to a desktop. But stuff like that belongs in another thread.

There's a lot of us old guys on here. We all know how to use chip clips. We can set jumpers and DIP switches too. Heck, I think I can remember how to low level format an MFM hard drive.

I'm 25 and I feel like moses sometimes, when do I get the old guy tag? I have never touched an ISA slot but I have seen a P2 slot processor in person, does that make me a teeny-bopper?

A p2 Slot??? Come back when you find a 287 coprocessor! Bring a full-height floppy disk drive with it.
