OK. So lets start from the top. This problem could be related to software or hardware. The easiest way to decide this is by plugging the mouse into another pc if possible. Although the first thing I would try is replacing the batteries with it being battery operated. Also ensure that the optical eye on the bottom of the mouse is unobstructed. Some optical mice also react odd when used on different surfaces, it is always best to use a mouse pad. Lastly if none of this changes the operation, you may want to reinstall the provided software.

I have a gear head mouse, it's a lighted optical mouse model no OM3500U and I can't figure out how to change the batteries to see if that is the problem with it. It won't work at all and it...


There are no batteries in this mouse as it is a wired mouse. Wireless mice require batteries, not wired.Try removing the mouse from the USB port it is in and move it to another available port. It should work right away (after it detects the new device)but you may need to restart the computer after you move it to the new USB port. If that does not work, than it died.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Mouse does not work, wheel keeps flashing fast, for few second and stops. Each time i try to move it, it acts like that


make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected
you might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers
make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x right click you will have options to update driver software disable uninstall scan for hardware in xp changes and properties
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall also
I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 arrows then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7 in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar
hope this helps

You should be able to disable the touchpad from the CONTROL PANEL - MOUSE options.

Go to Control Panel, click Mouse, click the big pointer, click Device Select, look under Touch Pad, click the blank "dot" next to Disable, also checkmark the box next to Disable touchpad.

Click APPLY and OK, then Restart your computer if necessary.

Does not move cursor, some times it moves but no control


You don't have to take it apart to clean it. The ball is designed to be removed from the unit by releasing it from the bottom of the control. Then you just simply clean off the red area with a cloth. Do not use alchohol on the surface. It could damage the unit.
