Question about Logitech G5

2 Answers

G5 is just toooo fast for gaming

Purchased a G5 corded mouse some time ago. Feels good in the hand, moves smoothly, well-balanced, etc....... But, no matter how much I play with the sensitivity settings, it's just too fast for game play. Relatively small movements send the cursor screaming across the screen. Have had it sitting in a drawer since I bought it, finding a cordless MX700 easier to use. Only problem with the MX700 is I can't program the buttons for CoD play. Remembered the G5 and thought I'd ask for help. HELP!

The new logitech G5 mouse which i have and really like comes with SetPoint a software that lets you adjust the dpi (dots per inch) and other settings specifically for each game, it works pretty well, you can see if you can download it here,en
the newer version of the G5 has two buttons behind the scroll wheel that let you adjust how much dpi you want with up too 5 different setings im not sure how the older one works. There is also a setting in the software that lets you decide whether more dpi means more movement or less and more precision. Also check in your windows settings and turn that down a bit, im not sure whether that still has influence on the mouse or if the logitech software works independently of that.

I recently purchased the 10 min solution game. I can calibrate the wii balance board just fine, and it works perfectly with any step aerobics that I do in the 10 min solution, however, if it switches to...

Here's what I think I figured out. The balance board powers off for the cardio boxing because it is not needed. The movements are measured by the hand remote and nunchuck not the balance board. The "bob" is still tricky to time right; great workout trying (sure hope I can walk tomorrow)! The trick is to move when the indicator square turns yellow. Good Luck! Hope this helps you!

G5 keeps powering up for a few mins then switches off?

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

There are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this issue:

Try a PMU Reset:
* Turn of your iMac if it is already turned off
* Disconnect all connections to the iMac except the power cord
* Now disconnect the power cord for approximately 20 seconds
* Reconnect just the power cable the keyboard, mouse and power cord, and then power your iMac G5 up.

* Check to see if the iMac boots up normally without power interruption.

* If the iMac G5 shuts off again, try these steps, another recommendation would be to remove all connections including the power cord, and lay the iMac G5 on soft cloth face down and with a philips screwdriver, remove the plate on the bottom of the iMac G5 where your RAM memory is located.
Before removing the RAM however, touch your hand on the metal boot to discharge any static current you carry for approximately 5 seconds.

Now remove each RAM card and then reseat (re-install) each card.

Restore the RAM card cover with your Philips screwdriver, reconnect your power cable, keyboard an
d mouse and turn on your iMac G5.

See if this second procedure helps if the first procedure does not work.

Let me know if this helps.

When I am going about 60 miles per hour the car doesn't run smooth, feels shakey. My tires were replaced in the front about 6 months ago.

if its just at that speed, have the tires balanced again, and get a front end alignment ,, a single bump on a curb can knock it out of alignment

G5 shuts down and restarts withour any input from keyboard or mouse

Check for loose power cord -- both ends. Check for faulty or switched power outlet (move to a different outlet).
It's doubtful this is a hardware problem in the G5. A hardware problem would conceivably turn the power off, but it isn't likely to turn it back on.
Realize that in System Preferences it is possible to program many desktop models to shut down and start up at certain times on certain days. I am assuming your report means that your machine starts up in quick succession after shutting down, which makes this possibility remote.

Looking for the perfect mouse for abobe Products


The speed is easy to change, your OS has a speed standard on all mices, whireless or not same speed. That speed can be changed in the controllpanel------Mice-----settings

But since you want a corder mice i can recomend you a
Logitech MX400 Performance Laser Mouse or a
Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer3.0

Both are good ones, but to really get the best one for you YOU have to test them yoursellf, see if the fits your hand, feel if you like them.

Good luck
