I am about to undergo a small little mouse mod and i didn't think it would be too hard. but after glancing through the basic electricity for modders i realized i don't know some things. i was just going to buy the LEd and put it in the mouse (not just throw it in, put it in the right spot of course) and all this stuff with the resistors and all totally baffles me. could anyone help me out here

Once you buy your LED, give us the stats on it and someone here will help you out.

And depending on your look, you might want to get the highest MCD rating on whatever color LED you are getting. Higher mcd = brighter.

I recently purchased an LED to undergo a mouse mod as well, and the resistor section has me baffled as well.

I have a

5mm Blue LED
5.0 Volt
30mA
with 300mcd

Any help with the resistors would be greatly appretiated.

If your mouse voltage is 5 volts and your leds voltage is 5 volts, you don't need a resistor.
Resistor is used to sink the overgoing voltage, so the led would get only the voltage that it needs...
That blue led that you have, isn't quite bright, if it's only 300mcd... :?

But anyway, you don't need a resistor for that led...
