Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse

1 Answer

Mouse left click button does not always make contact.

Mouse has been in use since 06-01-06. The left click button will at times not respond. The batteries are good. Tapping the moouse flat on a table surface makes it work for 5 or 6 more clicks. It seems that the contact points inside the unit are needing cleaned. How does this particular unit disassemble for cleaning?

Re: Mouse left click button does not always make contact.

Hi RPM GUY, I have a couple of these too but what you?re describing is just the button wearing out from lots of use. Since it?s less than one year old it probably still under warranty, taking it apart would definitely void it. I would contact Microsoft hardware support and try for a warranty replacement. If you want to go ahead anyway remove the 2x batteries and you will see a screw inbetween. Remove it and the bottom half will come appart. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the post.

Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys

Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

Hp mouse clicking two times when i am only clicking once

I have had the same problem with my Logitech wireless optical mouse and it has always been an indicator that my mouse's battery is low or almost depleted. If you have a fresh battery and it is still behaving the same way then the contacts under your "left click button" could be wearing down or malfunctioning. Also there are some basic mouse control settings found under START-->Control Panel -->Hardware and sound-->devices and printers-->Mouse

Mouse not responding when plugged into laptop

Welcome to Fixya.

Mouse not responding could mean that the driver is not installed in the laptop.

To check if it is installed go to Device Manager.

1. Go to your desktop, right click My Computer, and left click Properties.

2. Left click the Hardware tab and then left click the Device Manager button.

3. Click the plus sign right next to mouse to expand. Check if there is a yellow exclamation mark which indicates a driver problem.

4. If it is a driver problem, go to the manufacturer's website to get the latest driver.

If it is not a driver problem, try connecting the mouse to a different computer. Check if it will work. If it will not work, then it is a dead mouse.

Also check the cables if it shows any sign of wearing.

Your feedback will be much appreciated.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Mouse not responding to commands properly

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

Mouse has lost its grip! (electrical grip, that is)

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.
