Question about Logitech G5

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!

Re: G5 is just toooo fast for gaming

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.

How do I slow down a logitech M510 mouse? I have it as slow as it can go using control panel mouse settings but it is still too fast

You should have received a software program for your mouse with the installation of it from Logitech. If not it is free from Logitech. In that program you can set all the functions for your mouse, including how fast it moves. I had to slow my Logitech Optical Trackman down for some games I play. It was very easy to do using Logitech's mouse pointer tools. Hope that helps.

Right Click Defected in-game

try switching the right click to another button using setpoint. if the button works perfect then it is the micro switch for the right click contact logitech. if it drops turn off setpoint and try the regular right click if that drops just may be a glitch in the game. check for mouse controls in the game to tune the mouse.

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

Does this happen always or only in this game? If it is only in this game, then you may want to consult the game manual. If not, then it could be interference that may be causing the problem.

Any electrical device, such as the computer monitor, Zip drives, speakers, etc., can cause interference with cordless products. Most likely, this will effect tracking of pointing devices or the range of the device. Also, using cordless devices on a metal desk or a desk with a metal frame can cause problems with pointing device behavior and range. To resolve these types of issues, try moving the receiver at least 8 inches away from other electrical devices. Interference issues can also be resolved by moving the mouse closer to the receiver. You may also want to experiment with different locations and positions for the receiver, including moving the receiver to an upright/vertical position or rotated to a different angle. Another alternate solution is to elevate the receiver by placing it on a CD ROM case or other item.

Please let me know if this helped..

It's not working right....

The BenQ M310 mouse needs to "sync" with the USB receiver. Need to push the two buttons at the same time, or maybe the one in the mouse first then push the button in the USB receive so the two can "sync" to each other. This may solve this problem. Good luck!
