Hello gsx, I've seen that happen before but it wasn't because of an over-taxed power supply. It was a simple $5 fan that had frozen up and caused the power supply to overheat. Then it went *poof*. Sorry to learn it happened to you though.

I think if you can hear it there's a problem to begin with. My daughter "heard" mine sound a little funny a while back and told me to be prepared.
Mine cut out a couple of times a few weeks ago when I tried to defrag, was OK after a while. A friend who's a tech said they'll cut off when they overheat and suggested I vaccuum it because they collect dust.
I just got a new optical mouse and there haven't been any problems so far. Still afraid to defrag, though.
The one I use is suitable for left/right handed use. It has two scroll wheels though, they are diagnally behind each other, other than that it is perfectly symetrical. If you want to know where you can get them from in the UK, stickymail me and I'll try and get some prices from the company I got mine from (although delivery can take a good 6-8 weeks because they don't use the supplier very often)
