How can I solve this problem.\015\012Also, When itried to play a DVD movie there is a messaage incating that the lap top does not have a DVD converter. Yet, it is clearly stated that the T60 can ply CDs annd DVDs. So what's the problem?\015

Answers :

Sometimes a usb mouse requires a driver to install before it can be functional. You can go to the manufacturers website of the mouse and download the driver in accordance with your operating system.
If you have a dvd optical drive than it should say on the face plate of the dvd drive or even in device manger listing. Otherwise, you may simply need to downlaod windows codec pack or use VLC player to play the movie.
