Go into start>control panel>mouse>and check your settings make sure they didn't get changed some kind of way. You will see you can set it to how fast or slow you want it...second go into device manager to make sure there is no yellow! next to your mouse that means it needs an updated driver. Let me know if you have any questions..

    Alright, this is microsofts solution and I wish I had thought about it first. You are going to do a restore point. What that does is restore's your computer back in time to before you were having problems with the mouse. Its easy so follow along: go to start>programs>accessories>system tools>click on system restore. Use the arrow keys to establish a restore point. Then follow the directions. Let me know how it turns out.

Most opticals do not track on smooth white surfaces. It needs textures or color. Try pressing the "CONNECT" button on the bottom of the mouse and on the remote sensor.

USB mouse is jittery


Try the mouse on a different surface, also be sure you do not have any light directed at the mouse - this confuses the eye. Although no mouse pad is required for an optical mouse, sometimes it helps

Cursor not moving on screen


When you plug in the mouse you need windows to pop up and say found new hardware,and it will install a generic driver. I would shut down and restart and then plug it in again, if this does not work try installing the driver from disk that came with mouse, unplug mouse, install,plug it back in and try it.
Hope it works for you.

Microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000


Assign a keystroke to the mouse, in this instance I assigned 'p' for pan (as per the .pgp file short cuts etc) against the scroll wheel click.

Click the scroll wheel, 'p' comes up on the cad screen, right click to confirm then the pan icon appears, hold the left mouse button and drag at your leisure. Yet to find a fix for Inventor.

Not ideal, but better than nothing at presnt.

Pairing my Macally BT micro mouse


Q: After pairing my mouse, the button click works but cursor tracking does not move. What can I do?A: The cursor tracking problem is because red sensor LED is not on. Please try another set of battery or fully charge battery again, and verify if bottom red LED turns on. If red LED still does not turn on, please remove batteries from mouse, press and hold the pairing button for 5 seconds, next press and hold the left and right buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds, followed by several clicks. Install the battery into mouse, you should see red LED turns on, mouse cursor will move.
