Question about 3M em500gps Mouse

Mouse: Must click 3 or 4 times to "pick" stuff. Highlighting "lets go"

Hello!

I have a 3M Renaissance Mouse (ergo, joystick-looking mouse; rollerball, not optical) that suddenly started acting weird today. If I am highlighting stuff (rows, cells, etc.), the top part of the highlight "lets go" and I end up with the bottom part, where I am, the only thing highlighted.

I've also noticed that I have to click 3 - 5 times to get my mouse to "pick" stuff.

I do not have the software/driver that came with this mouse many years ago, but the 3M mouse does not really need it to operate.

I'm hoping there is a setting I can tweak, or something in the mouse I can fix vs. buying a new one.

Thank you!

Try compressed air to clean under the button. Alternativly try tapping the sides of the mouse gently on the desk - this could dislodge anything under the button

I don't think its a driver issue but you may as well try it. look for the mouse driver on the 3M web site

My ex100 logitech mouse isn't working properly


Hi there

Your mouse buttons are stuck and can no longer hold firmly.

The best solution is to get a new mouse because repairing the mouse might cost almost the same price as buying a new one.

have a great day!

Highlighting


you may have turned on click-lock. You can disable this feature in Control Panel, under Accessibility Options. Click Lock helps people who have a hard time holding the mouse button while dragging the mouse across the screen by holding the mouse button for them

Mouse freezes


I had the same problem. The following solution from 3M support fixed it. We Normally see this problem on laptop computers running Windows XP. There is a power management setting in the Device Manager, which controls the USB Root Hub. Often this setting is selected to "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". When control of the mouse is needed again, the computer is unable to turn the device back on. To remove this power management feature follow the instructions below. 1. Right click on the "My Computer" Icon on your Windows Desktop 2. Select "Properties" from the Menu 3. Click on the "Hardware" tab in the system properties window 4. Click on the "Device Manager" button 5. Click on the (+) plus sign next to "Universal Serial Bus Controller" in the Device Manager 6. Locate the "USB Root Hub" (Note: there may be more than one, and you will need to change all of them), double-click on the "USB Root Hub" to access the properties windows for that device. 7. Click on the "Power Management" tab 8. Remove the checkmark from the box containing the following option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" 9. Click "ok" 10. Close the Device Manager and all other open Windows Test the Mouse to be sure that the new settings are working. You should now be able to leave the mouse unused without it being turned off by the operation system.
