When I use my mouse to click, click and drag, basically do ANYTHING it either double clicks automatically or doesn't click at all. Basically I think the left click button is malfunctioning. Do I need to get a new mouse? Is there any way I can get JUST the mouse and will it work with the tablet and pen that I have- those are working fine. Is there anything I can do to fix my mouse.
Need help- I have a huge project due in design class and this problem is going to cause me to have a stroke.
I think I figured out this problem. It's more of a wearing issue with the constant use of the button. Basically the plastic tab on the internal underside on the mouse is wearing down from continual use. I added a piece of custom cut card stock under the front of the mouse circuit board. This raised it up just a little to compensate for the wear on the button.
I was having the same exact problem. Something inside came loose and was moving around. I could hear something little moving around when I shook it in the air. But, the skipping was making me so C-R-A-Z-Y that I eventually lost my temper and slammed the mouse down on my desk, causing the scroll wheel to push down into the cavity too far and break. Now when I shake it I hear an even bigger piece of something moving around inside. But, GUESS WHAT? The skipping problem is gone (go-figure) !! But the wheel doesn't work so I ordered a new one. Anyways, my best guess is that it has something to do with the scroll wheel.

On Windows systems you may drag and drop or copy and paste.
Bring up your flash drive by double clicking it : Start - Computer -click on the flash drive.. Make that window smaller by clicking on the square "windows" icon if you want . Then you can open the files you wish to copy, highlight them and right click "copy" then click on the flash drive window and right click and "paste" Or you may open both the flash drive window and the files you wish to copy window and drag and drop them into the flash drive window by clicking on the file and holding the mouse button down while "dragging" it into the flash drive window then releasing the mouse button.
I had the exact same problem with my original Logitech wireless mouse that came with a wireless keyboard. I eventually figured that the button component inside the mouse wasn't making consistent contact causing unintended double clicking or dropping while dragging.
I fixed it by doing some soldering to switch the left mouse button with the right mouse button, since I didn't have to use double clicking or dragging with the right mouse button. It worked pretty well for several months until the switched left button started showing the same problem again.
Now my newer Logitech mouse (it's more expensive Nano wireless mouse) is having the same problem after about 1 year using it. I think there's a serious durability problem with the button component that Logitech is putting on their mice. I may do the same trick again on this mouse, but now I don't consider Logitech as a good mouse manufacturer anymore. They used to make good quality hardwares but I guess they aren't that good anymore with all those cheap Chinese suppliers for their parts. :(
ok... so i've just been fiddling around with my wacom settings... and i noticed that while i didn't see any sound options when i go to the wacom tablet settings through the windows control panel, i do have them in the pen office program... i had the sound box ticked, so i just unticked it...
I've been having the same problem and I think I just figured it out.
I'm using a Wacom Intuos 3 on Windows Vista. I think one of the Windows automatic updates caused this problem. I've just been putting up with it for way too long when I finally thought to check the driver.
I started by going to the control panel and typing in "mouse" in the search box. Then I clicked on "change mouse click settings". When I selected the "hardware" tab across the top I noticed that Wacom Mouse was not highlighted. I selected it and clicked on the "properties" button. I clicked on the "driver" tab across the top and clicked on the "driver details" button. Then I selected the wacommousefilter.sys driver and chose "ok". After that my double click problem has stopped.
You can also download the newest driver by going here: http://www.wacom.com/downloads/drivers.php
I hope this helps anyone still having this problem.
Hmm. I've had a similar thing happen with my tablet. Have you tried removing the tablet pen from the list of tools in tablet preferences and then adding it to the list again before checking the 'About' section of the tablet pen set-up and clicking the 'diagnose' button there in? As that worked for me when my tablet pen was not working. The pen was recognized by the tablet after that.
ok. i see your having great time using that mouse and you cared that device for several years. Try open your mouse and carefully remove these buttons of your mouse to clean those dirty stuff stacked on those linings( I believe that you haven't done this before, right?). I believe that this will need to clean a bit to give it back on track again.
There are two basic ways to work around this situation:
* Use a PS/2 mouse instead of a serial mouse. Using a PS/2 mouse will free up your serial port so that you can connect the camera to the computer. Check the computer's documentation to see if this type of mouse is available for your system.
* Enable MouseKeys on your computer. MouseKeys allows you to use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer and to click, double-click and drag. After enabling MouseKeys, you can disconnect the serial mouse and connect the camera to the computer.
Click Here to see an animated demonstration, or follow the instructions below.
To enable MouseKeys:
1. From the Windows toolbar, select Start > Settings > Control Panels.
2. Double-click the Accessibility Options icon.
3. Select the Mouse tab.
4. Select Use MouseKeys and change settings, if desired.
5. Click OK.
