Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Kensington Wireless Mouse for Netbooks plugged into an T60 ThinkPad. For the most part the mouse is great, but it will occassionally start "wavering" around the screen. This wouldn't be a big deal but occasionally if it happens when I'm clicking on a folder it will literally move that folder into another folder!!! I've tried changing the speed in the control panel setting for Mice, but it doesn't take away the problem. Also, Kensington has told me that their Mouseworks software won't work with this model. Help!!!...:-)

    What do you mean it will work? What can I do to keep it from moving folders of data???

  • hlevine Sep 05, 2009

    The mouse does not come with a driver. You just plug it in. Am I missing something?

    Also, since Kensington Mouse Works was already installed, I tried uninstalling it. When that didn't make a difference, I reinstalled it - same problem.


  • hlevine Sep 05, 2009

    I don't understand what I would upgrade. There was nothing to download with this mouse, it was just plug and play. Where would I even look to find what you're talking about? I don't mean to sound confrontational. I'm just genuinely confused...:-)

  • hlevine Sep 05, 2009

    I understand that. What I don't understand is what to look for and where to look for it. Can you help me with that?

  • hlevine Sep 07, 2009

    I have searched the link you sent me and the only thing from Kensington is the Mouseworks software that doesn't work with this mouse.

    Please let me know if I'm searching wrong.

    These are the numbers on the back of the Mouse:

    P/N K72345
    M/N M01057-M

    Thanks for any help you can be.


  • hlevine Sep 07, 2009

    I have checked it numerous times. Tried cleaning it off, etc.

  • hlevine Sep 07, 2009

    Thanks for trying, but I have 2 of them and they both have the same problem.

  • hlevine Sep 07, 2009

    They are identical. Why would everything else work, but just have this one "wavering" problem?

  • hlevine Sep 07, 2009

    I think there is a conflict somewhere. Thank you for trying.

  • hlevine Sep 07, 2009

    Something else I'm running may be conflicting with the wireless signal from this new nano technology. The older versions of the mouse had no such problem.

  • hlevine Sep 07, 2009

    I officially give up. I appreciate the help, but we're right back where we started

Sir, I think It will work. Everything is fine without the exception of " Wavering ". It is literally not a problem. It is a common problem in every optical mouse. But this inconvenience increases in the wireless mouses. Be aware of keeping every working equipment away from the mouse to prevent magnetic field repulsion. This is caused because of every machine sends electro-signals when doing work ( it will also be in a torch !! ). Thus also be aware to keep off magnets from the wireless mouse. Please reply to tell me about your doubts.

    Sir, go there and take a look for the drivers for the mouse.

    Sir, please check the connection of your mouse to the computer. There can be a loose connection. Please review it. Regards.

    I think the optical receptor is defective. I am telling this because there is no way left that can encounter such a problem. Thank you.

    This is a wireless recepting problem. The computer is not recepting wireless signals. Do you have the other mouse of a another company ?

  • Nandini Dhar
    Nandini Dhar Sep 07, 2009

    The mouses of kensington must have this as a generic problem. You yourself analyse. How can the same company model mouse have the same problem ???? What do you think.

  • Nandini Dhar
    Nandini Dhar Sep 07, 2009

    These mouses are really high tech. Causing high tech problems. Try changing the optical receptor of the mouse.

Usb receiver broke on my kensington pilotboard desktop set, any ideas


You can contact Kensington's customer service and see whether they will ship you a replacement. As an alternative, you could buy another Kensington Wireless Pilot Board mouse and use its receiver. As a third alternative, you could buy another Kensington wireless mouse or keyboard and see whether the receiver for that will pick up the Pilot Board keyboard. Finally, you could buy another wireless mouse or keyboard (not Bluetooth) and see whether its receiver will pick up the Pilot Board.

Difficulty using an external mouse on my IBM Thinkpad T60 laptop


Sometimes a usb mouse requires a driver to install before it can be functional. You can go to the manufacturers website of the mouse and download the driver in accordance with your operating system.
If you have a dvd optical drive than it should say on the face plate of the dvd drive or even in device manger listing. Otherwise, you may simply need to downlaod windows codec pack or use VLC player to play the movie.
