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.

My dell mouse (I'm not sure which kind it is) will not right click. It moves, i can left click, but just not right click. Copying and pasting without CTRL is hard, and I cannot bring any menus up.

Mouse moves too fast


Hello,

You can always control mouse pointer motion (speed), by using Mouse Option in Control Pannel. Open Mouse option in control pannel. Here you can go to Pointor Motion, now move the slider to left side. Click on Apply and check mouse speed. When you get the required speed, Click OK.

Thanks

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.

Mouse doesn't work


LOOK FOR A BUTTON TO RESET THE MOUSE AND THE USB CONNECT SHOULD ALSO HAVE A RESET SWITCH ON THE USB CONNECT YOU NEED TO PUSH BOTH AT THE SAME IME SO THE CAN GET INSINK OR THE CHANNEL TO SET. SOME TIMES THE MOUSE HAS TO BE TAKEN APART AND CLEANED JUST LIKE THE OLD MOUSE BALL ONE, AND RESET THE MOUSE SETTING IN CONTROL PANAL, UPDATE DRIVE MAY ALSO HELP IF THERE IS ANY NEW FIXS

ROD

PS SOME TIMES THE LEAD TO THE BATTARY CONNECTION NEED THE THE SPRING PULLED OUT A LITTLE OR THE OTHER END WITH METAL TAB ON IT NEEDS PULLED OUT BECAUSE THE PLAY IN THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT IS LOOSE AND THE CONNECTION IS INTERMITTING A VOLTAGE CHANGE AND CAUSES THE MOUSE TO LOOSE ITS SIGNAL TO THE TRANSMITTER OR SET FREQANCES.
