How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter

"Today I am working to finish setting back up a Microsoft XP Professional based Dell Optiplex 755 system for one of my local clients. It had a dinked-up Windows Registry and needed to have a fresh install done. This model does not include PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports. When I took this system in on Friday I did not realize I have no available USB optical mouse to use. Nor do I have a PS/2 to USB adapter on hand. While this will be corrected in the future, the only USB mouse I have on hand is a small Belkin mouse for use with a laptop. This mouse uses a ball instead of optics to move the pointer and it has a very short cord. A USB extension cable solved the short cord problem. This would be a good solution if the mouse were not worn out from use causing the pointer to not be easy to move all the time. As a result, to say I hate using this mouse is an understatement. During the reinstall of XP Professional on this PC I finally got to the point where I had to do something to relieve the pain."
