Wireless mouse problem

I have been using a Dell wireless mouse for two years. Recently I have began to experience problems in which the mouse responds as if the batteries are low. However, replacing the batteries does not help. Movement is jumpy, irregular and sometimes completely unresponsive. The symptoms get worse the more the hard drive is "running". I have checked for viruses and ran a registery fix program. Neither has helped. The only thing out of the ordinary I have had to do lately is uninstall and reinstall Norton after an error occurred. In ideas?

Re: wireless mouse problem

Some research online indicates that model eats batteries quickly, and has trouble with certain mousepads/surfaces. In general, wireless mice and keyboards that use radio to communicate can be very sensitive to the metal around them, so if you are on a desk with a lot of metal, try moving the receiver much closer to the mouse, and see if that helps.

Re: wireless mouse problem

I have had this problem in two different locations. The following fixed the problem in one of them and is probably related to the other. So, in scenario "O" (office) an old PS2 mouse was replaced with a MS Wireless Mouse (Model 2?). When I checked the device manager I found that there were two drivers listed - one for the old and one for the new. So I uninstalled the driver for the PS2 mouse and after a reboot everything worked fine thereafter.

The other scenario I call "H" for home but this is just my twisted mind at work. In scenario H the original set up was for a combined MS multimedia keyboardh and a model 1 MS wireless mouse. The mouse died and so I replaced it with a MS 5000, and the intermittent hanging drove me CRAZY. So i tried the same approach as scenario O with limited success. You see the driver for the old mouse still installs automatically because it is the old MS Dual Receiver version that runs both mouse and keyboard - and the keyboard is still in use. So I "disabled" the mouse side of th dual receiver and the problem was greatly reduced but not eliminated. For you, it may work completely because we all have slightly different tweaks and programs...

I had this problem, but only when my batteries were dead. Check the contacts on the batteries to make sure they're working. Are all the buttons failing too? It might be a broken microswitch (or whatever they use these days). It sounds like you're looking at a new mouse if it's not contacts. Unless someone else on this forum has different ideas.

Dell Wireless Keyboard stopped responding, please help.

The keyboard should have a button underneath it. Press the button on the usb controller first and then the button on the keyboard. Repeat a few times to see if it connects. If you are still having trouble try another set of batteries as some batteries are not designed for wireless products.

HP Wireless Optical Mouse Fading

Ref wireless mouse. Not sure if you have a solution yet but it seems there could be 2 sources to the problem. First a weak or decaying laser. Second, something you have introduced recently that could interfere with the wireless signal eg mobile phone, another wireless device, cordless phone, telephone wires close to receiver or maybe something else. Not sure what you do if the laser is failing other than clean the lens. You might have to get it checked or try a friends mouse to see if it is better. There s also a setting than can change the sensitivity of the mouse. Have you looked at those settings.
