Question about Dynex Keyboard/Optical Mouse DX-CKB102

2 Answers

Laser mouse goes crazy

The pointer on my brand new, Dynex DX-WLOM2 mouse often skips around the screen crazily and uncontrollably. It moves when my hand doesn't, at lightning speed. Fresh batteries didn't cure it. The crazyiness subsides after some use, but it starts again if I step away from the PC for a few minutes. Different surfaces don't fix it. I installed the Dynex driver and checked all setting in the control panel. I don't want to return it because the matching keyboard has a WONDERFUL key feel that I just love.

    To expand on this a bit, Windows XP Professional warned me during installation that the keyboard had not been officially approved by Microsoft, or some such. It worked fine at first, then the skipping started days later. The keyboard is now starting to act up; some keys must be hit repeatedly to make them work. I have no beef against Microsoft, but I'm beginning to suspect that they set a boobytrap for other equipment makers who don't work within their development system.

    Turns out the colour of the mouse pad was the problem: I tried the suggestion of a black surface, and my wild mouse was instantly tamed.

    My old mouse pad had a black and white photo on it, which must have driven the laser nuts.
    Thanks, Fixya and Tomj23. Apologies to Microsoft.

Its probably not Microsoft?s fault even though they are an easy target for all of us. When they say the software hasnt been certified that means it hasnt met the standards required to ensure stability in most environments. This is their way of protecting the consumer from buying something that may cause problems but at the same time allowing you the ability to override the warning. If you override the warning then you have to accept the ramifications?. That aside there are a couple of things we can try; however, the flaky keyboard behavior screams driver issues to me: - Try using a different surface for the mouse, a piece of black paper or a mouse pad will do for a test. Some optical mice don?t like the way some desktops reflect their LED light and can behave as you describe. - Try brand new-high quality batteries you absolutely know are fresh and working. - Totally remove all software and reinstall from scratch. - If you?re plugging the mouse into a USB port try powering down the computer and using the PS2 port for the mouse instead. Mice in my experience overall work better using PS2 ports on PCs that have them. - If after all this you still have no success then I would suggest you call Dynex support and ask if they have a driver that is written correctly for Windows. If not I would return it and take a look at Logitech, Microsoft or one of the other venders that make mouse/keyboard combinations with well written drivers. I hope that helps and that others don?t feel obligated to flame me. At any rate if you have any other questions please let us know and as always don?t forget to rate the posting.

My Dynex wired mouse, when plugged in, works but the red "laser" light on the bottom blinks like a really fast strobe light..making my mouse pointer jump around on the screen instead of moving...


My laser mouse flashes too and it works just fine. I'm not certain, yours may be different than mine and maybe it's not supposed to flash on and off, but try cleaning the bottom where the light shines out using a damp soft cloth. Also try using a mouse pad with it... sometimes it may help.
If not, your mouse may be defective. Try exchanging it at the store where you bought it from.

Mouse continually skips around. I changed batteries, reset it and everything. What's wrong?


You have the tracking speed set too high.Go to 'start'-'control panel'-'printers and other hardware'-'mouse'.After opening mouse you'll see "pointer options",click and you'll see "pointer speed".Move the speed down from fast to slow until you can see it easily.The other thing is if you don't have enough RAM memory it won't be able to keep up with simple hand movements.Click "start'-right click"computer"left click"properties"and up will come what you have for a computer will be displayed.Near the bottom of the page will be RAM,to it's left is how much you have.XP you need at least 512MB(1GB is better-up to 3GB best)Vista 1GB minimum,up to 6GB with Vista x64.Adding Ram is the easiest way to speed up a sluggish machine.Please re post if you'd like to get into changing setting for best performance.

Will not move pointer


Power down your computer, plug in original mouse, boot up. After computer boots, unplug original, and plug in your current mouse. If this does not help, call geek squad!

Mouse Cursor Jumps to the right of the screen


Have you tried going into the control panel - mouse - pointer options - motion speed (slower) and experiment with pointer precision check box? Try it, see what that gets ya.

Cant get Pointer to move


First try
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Then if that doesn't work try
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
