It was just showing a white /black? screen before,

I got around to opening it up again today and re-seated whatever it was I re-seated and also tried it without the floppy drive, Works a treat but the collection of ST games I have don't work so well
Only Rainbow Islands ,Carrier Command ,Pit Fighter(horrible) and Lotus III so far out of many.

The mouse buttons are a little unresponsive but that should be easy to deal with (if I get around to it)

Thanks for the advise I was given here ,One of those things surely fixed it.:D

No, I broke it again :(

I was trying a PC drive and the ST's ribbon cable is damaged so I think the connection is bad.

If I want to replace the ribbon what can I do?

Its a 520stfm

Open up the mouse and clean inside really well. Remove the ball from underneath and clean the rollers inside. What I find is that a brown, gummy snot-like substance builds up inside mice and impedes their functioning. Hair is also a big culprit in mice not working properly.
