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.

To modify the mouse settings, open the property sheet using Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Mouse and select the Buttons tab as shown below. Check boxes and sliders allow the necessary modifications to be performed. There is even a Click Lock function that is very handy for those that have trouble holding down the mouse button while using the drag and drop function. The button configuration and Double-click speed settings must be set properly. Then it can solve your double-click problem.
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. :(
Greetings, You can buy any other style or brand of mouse and it will work right along side of the Wacom. I chose to keep my Logitech wireless mouse after installing my Wacom tablet because it provided a better feature set (i.e. more buttons ). I have had no issues. Please rate me well if this helped. Take Care, -WN
HEY EVERYONE I FIXED THE DOUBLECLICK PROBLEM, can't belive i can use
this mouse again, i peel off the bottom sticker foot. removed the QC
sticker from the screw and removed screw, got top off, under the left
click button there is a little black box with a thin white button, i
carefully with a small flat head screwdriver lifted the black box
slighty off its connection then pushed it back down again. i did this
with the mouse plugged in blue lights on and everything. it instanly
worked fine. hope this works for anyone else
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.
