Computer issues caused by furry things

Post by catsue » Thu Mar 27, 2014 10:38 am

Just thought I'd let people know what to do if, after leaving your laptop on the settee, you come back to find that everything on the screen is sideways!!

Tip 1: Remove the furry thing from the area that has obviously been walking all over the keyboard.

Tip 2: No need to spend an hour with your head sideways trying to work out which way to move the mouse so that it goes where you want it so that you can Google what to do.

Tip 3: Hold the Ctrl and Alt keys down together and at the same time press the up arrow.

Tip 4: Remember not to leave the laptop anywhere that the furry things can walk over or even lie on the keyboard - it will save a lot of time and also help you avoid a crick in the neck!!

I went from this :o to this :x to this :D

You just need to make sure your cat is compatible with your hardware, and that you're up-to-date with any upgrades. I can highly recommend the iCat:
