PC Troubleshooting

Recommended Posts

Son: Dad, my PC is acting weird.

Me: Why, what’s up? [Thinking OMG what has he been infected with]

Son: When I click Start or open some windows it’s like the cursor down key or scroll wheel is continually being pressed/spun down.

Me: Huh? Show me


Sure enough, when clicking on Start the menu appeared but it was as if the someone was madly clicking the down arrow key. I’d click on something but the highlight was just kept speeding down. Pressed Up arrow or scroll up but no, it continued to keep going down.

Unplugged the keyboard – still doing it.

Unplugged the mouse – still doing it.

Checked the mouse and keyboard settings in control panel – No changes.

Maybe the Logitech Gaming software was having a problem? Uninstalled that, rebooted – no change.

Ran a full virus check – nothing found.


What the …


Looked down at the floor and saw his wired X-Box controller … poking out from underneath his sports bag … pulled out the controller which had the pressing the left thumb stick down, causing the issue on the PC.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
      And so...
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
