Dud pushbutton
« on: October 23, 2009, 05:08:21 PM »
The enter button (to left of touchpad) on my CmNBook lost its click a while ago, but still worked. Now it has given up the ghost completely. (I had to use reset to turn the machine off!) Is it possible to fiddle it, or do I have to go miles to Maplin and get them to service it? Any possible ways of remedying this would be VERY welcome.

USB keyboards and mice work on the box.  I got a nice little Trust mouse from Morrisons for a fiver.

I would second the recommendation for a USB mouse. I got a cheap optical one at Asda for under a fiver. As well as being great for navigating round the desktop, it's pretty much essential for playing games like LianLianKan to any decent level.
