Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147
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?
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.

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...
