We had a USB port on a computer burn through three mice (both wireless and wired) within a short amount of time after them being plugged-in. It was only one of the ports that exhibited the behavior on a laptop.

As it turns out, this is actually a feature. I'm not sure why it hasn't happened before in the year's time I've been using 8.1. It's usually called sticky edges by users and can be disabled by updating the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop changing the DWORD MouseMonitorEscapeSpeed from 0 (enabled) to 1 (disabled), followed by a reboot. ...

From what I could find via Google ("windows 7 uninstall old USB drivers") Windows 7 leaves all old USB drivers in place. This site explains how to uninstall old ones: http://www.faqforge.com/windows/uninstall-usb-drivers-on-windows-7/.

It sounds like there was a static electricity discharge from you or the phone into the computer ("as soon as the metal from the charger contacted my phone port the computer had a stroke"). I suggest: Disconnect the "touchy" USB hub. Move it far away from the computer, somewhere like the trash can. Backup your computer. Run chkdsk /r on it, or see CHKDSK - ...

With Windows display properties this is not possible.

These cables tend to cost far more than their passive counterparts, but can reach far greater distances. For even longer distances, this may not be sufficient. The standards and protocols involved were not designed to deal with the issues ...

I've always found two-finger tapping for right click and two-finger dragging for scrolling to be very helpful. You may also want to see if you can enable cursor momentum. Some people hate it but I found it very useful when I need to use the touch pad. What is the make/model of the computer? If you are using the default Windows drivers, see if you can find ...

There are a few I think are supported by windows 8 by default, like pinch to zoom, two finger scroll, etc. Your trackpad manufacturer could also have added some more gestures, so to know what else there is, it might be a good idea to check on your manufacturers website for more gestures. Personally I use keyboard shortcuts in combination with my trackpad to ...
