1 Answer

Why is my Perixx PERIMICE-712B Mouse only working intermittently after only 7 months?

After 7 months, the mouse started acting strangely (only moving to the corners of the screen). Unplugged the receiver, plugged back in, no change. Changed batteries, no luck. changed ports for the receiver...worked for about 5 minutes and back to the weirdness. Running Win 8 but won't work on Win 7 device either

Because it is a no name mouse with little or no warranty. You're lucky it worked as long as it did.

    I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to be snide. It's just that when you buy something based on a low price it is more likely to fail than not. There are no spare parts made for repairs, there is little or no warranty and even less customer support. These are all things that cause the price to be higher on name brand products. I have been working with computers since 1986. I learned long ago that bargains come with a hidden price that often makes the name brand seem not so bad a deal after all. I have had excellent luck buying used name brand products off ebay.

    I did not buy it based on price. I have fibromyalgia and certain mice really hurt my hand. This one didn't.

Mouse wont work when plugged into usb port

Even without software the mouse should work for most functions. Forget about the software for now and focus on trying to get the mouse to function. Is there an on/off or power switch on it? how about a small round button to link it with the receiver. Also look for a small round button on the receiver as well and if you find one, press it and press the one of the mouse within 30-seconds of each other.

I need a new mouse for my Vtech Dora laptop

A couple of months ago my daughters V-tech Dora Laptop acted strange when the mouse was plugged in. Once the mouse was disconnected, the problem was gone.

I wrote an e-mail to the customer service of v-tech explaining the problem. And without any answer by e-mail, a week later, a new mouse arrived by post.

You can always try that! I live in Belgium, so it was the customer service in The Netherlands that responded to my e-mail.

Wireless mouse not working

Try to replace the batteries in it. It may be acting strange due to low batteries. If this does not help you try testing out on another system and post results.

I have an Advent cordless mouse ADE-EMB1 which has suddenly stopped working although it is detected by my laptop.

Try putting brand new batteries in it, if this does not work, you should just buy a new one. When the batteries get weak they can make the mouse start acting strange.

Mouse cursor moving by itself

In windows xp go into start menu, then into control panel then click on appearance and themes, then move your mouse over to mouse pointers click on it , uncheck "enhance pointer precision, and click apply, that will stop the mouse from acting crazy, this will work with dell mouse pointers and most.
