RAREST problem over the internet, a Changing mouse acceleration.

*** Before replying to this thread ***

Alright.. I've been having a lot of mouse accel problems ( started at the end of summer ), you might be thinking ' bah easy to fix', but, what's unusual, is that the mouse acceleration changes by itself. I can make it change by alt tabbing while playing counter strike source and then, getting back in the game, it can change a coupple times in an hour... Most people who have mouse acceleration problems are most of the time a constant mouse accel that was only changing ingame but not in windows. Mine stays in windows, even after restarting the pc. I tried pretty much everything that can be possibly done :

What I've tried to fix it.

- tried to force windows/css to stay with windows default accel/speed setting with setpoint ( I tried with it on and with it off, same result )
- downloaded the CPL mousefix ( which is supposed to disable almost ALL accel, I had twice more accel with it )
- looked if the enhance pointed precision was the problem ( it's off )
- I tried to add : -noforcemaccel -noforcemparms -noforcemspd
still not fixing this in the lauch option .
- Tried to delete css( uninstall ) and redownload it ( twice ) still the same problem.....
- setpoint, no smart move or trails, nor game detection and accel on OS ( xp ). Advanced settings only change is report rate to 1000. ( btw I've tried uninstalling it and SAME results ).
-clean format, twice
- I thought at first that it was the mouse ( G5, plugged in the usb port, NOT ps/2), but it did the same with 2 other mice.

-Windows XP SP3 ( did the same in SP2 )
- 2GB 667 MHZ 2x1 GB
-Sparkle 400W
-Seagate Barracuda 160 GB
-G5, G11
-AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+

I have the latest drivers for my gpu, but not for the motherboard I think..

BIOS Version ASUS M2NPV-VM ACPI BIOS Revision 1001

I haven't yet registered my motherboard since the serial is on the motherboad, I know it's as well on the box, but the guy who sold it to me had to take it off the box to get a 90$ rebate on my epson printer -_- lol.

* going to open the pc *

Thanks in advance !!!

    BigLou, I tried to restore it many times.... didn't work.

    Teknowolf, I reformatted my hard-drive, I test my system with malwarebytes weekly and I highly doubt there would still be an errant code...

    var-pun, I'll try to see if I still have a usb to ps/2 thingy and I'll try it with my optical mouse ( since it can screw your G5 ).

    Also, I went to the ASUS website as you might know, and I read that I shouldn't use Asus Update to flash my motherboard, they recommand EZ-flash 2, and when I search it on google to be able to download it, they only links that I get are from related to nintendo -_-...

    Thanks for posting !

Now this is going to be really hard to figure out the problem by just sitting here any way looks like you have tried quite a few steps
good thing that you posted these otherwise i am quite sure you would have got the same steps here too

not lets see
1) the games might not be the problem as the problem with the mouse continues in the windows as well
2)Clean formatting (are you talking about the formatting of windows ) did not work that means there is no problem with the settings also as formmating solve basically all the software problems
3)You have tried changing the mouse twice so no problems with the mouse too

also old driver do not really create some problem but then again there might be a bug on the motherboard

else what you could try is to see if there is no problem with the USB interface that might be the culprit here
also if you have tried so many thing could you also try and place a mouse in the ps/2 port and see if the same probem continues
and if you have already done that pls post the results here

would to happy to help.

    ok then....
    there are some mouses  whaich connect directly to the Ps/2 port  so 
    you might want to  check it with that.
    if someone has a old comp you might find one there.

This might seem like trying to swat a fly with a sledgehammer, but hear me out.

It sounds like you got some errant code infecting one of your files that is run at startup. You COULD try to disable each "Non-essential" startup one at a time but that might take a LONG.... time depending on all the startups in the startup folder, and registry, and services etc....

My Proposal is back up all the files you Can't replace. Format the Hard drive and reinstall the Operating System. Then before you put any of your archived files back on the fresh install run an antivirus and malware check on it.

It may be extreme but it WILL clear any "Undesirable" code from the system

Onn Wireless Mouse has stopped working. What do I do?

Mine would work fine until I turned on my wireless headphones...then the mouse would move a little stop.....move a little....then stop.

I made sure my headphones were on.

I turned off the mouse, moved the mouse reciver to a USB port on the front of my computer (the mouse reciver and the headphone receivers were next to each other on the back of the computer). I turned the mouse back on.

The computer imediately gave me the "installing USB driver" notification.

When it was complete....both played nicely more problems.

Logitech M510 suddenly stopped working

What does the device manager say about the hardware?
It could be loss of the usb device controller. Windows XP is old and that is an indication that the hardware is old too.

Tension on my Pfaff Grandquilter

check carefully that the top thread is actually gong between the tension plates and not behind them and jamming on the retainer bolt
before threading the needle place the thread up to the point of threading the needle and pull on the thread , proper tension is when there is a slight resistance to pulling the thread
If it takes excessive force to pull the thread then it is caught around something so follow the thread all the way back to the spool to see where the problem is

It sounds like you got a bad mouse.
Logitech is not that bad they know about the Mouse. They've been dealing with mouses for many years and before Windows.
You may want to get a different model.
