Just bought new mouse - razor copperhead. The problem is - after plugin up the device my PC wont start. It's stopping on a BIOS screen and wont go further. I've checked the mouse on another PC and it is working, also i've checked all my usb ports - the same thing, it just wont start.
Can you help me to solve that problem??
Its a common problem on certain motherboards with several USB devices (not limited to the mouse, also been known to happen with Ipods and such) if you remove your mouse (or at times you might need to remove "all" USB devices) the computer should start-up with no problems. When the windows log-in screen is reached you can plug them back in. A solution to this is updating (flashing) the bios. (you might want to have an expert do this for you) Or if it doesnt bother you to much,.. simply remove your usb device(s) on startup
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I found that when this was happening to me the problem area was where the wire meets the mouse. By wiggling that (moving the mouse) it would cause it to disconnect and reconnect.
Some claim it could be the firmware for various hardware pieces on your pc IE: motherboard, usb. Depending on how old the mouse is this could be true. Mine, however, is 4 years old and needs to either be repaired or replaced.
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:
1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.
Just had the same problem with my copperhead... firstly go to url below to show you how to open up the copperhead (only do this if it's out of warranty!! which is two years if you have your purchase recipt) http://razerblueprints.net/index.php/Copperhead/copperhead-disassembly-guide.html . Once you have got the top off look at the front where the wheel attaches you can pull the wheel out of the circular thing on the left then find some thin paper I used some laser receipt paper (probably gonna wear out but will find something better in meantime) cover the hole with a very small square of whatever thin material you have chosen then push the axle of the wheel back in... this tightens the hole back up allowing the clicking feel to come back and the scroll wheel to work again. Ultimately the problem is wear and tear with the hole for the axle or the shape of the axle end wearing down.
Hi, This double-clicking can be due to a worn out micro-switch in your mouse. If you are well -verse with repairing such gadgets, you can go ahead and replace this switch yourself or refer it to a qualified technician
Hmm...I managed to solve the problem of mouse "breaking" while playing counter strike..Its a lil technical...
1. Right Click My Computer -> Properties 2. Choose 'Hardware' tab and then 'Device Manager' 3. You should see a Yellow exclamation mark on 'Razer Copperhead USB mouse' under 'Human Interface devices' 4. Right click -> properties ------------------------------------------------------------- I do not exactly remember the wordings of the prompts that appear after this..
5. Click on something which says "install / update driver" 6. Choose the 1st option which has something missing in one of the columns.. 7. Unzip downloaded driver files on your desktop 8. Choose logical options from here... 9. At some point it will ask for "Razerlow.sys" file... 10. Click browse and go to C:\Windows\system32\drivers....you will find it there... 11. Choose logical options from here and your "breaking" problem will be solved... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This does not solve the "No mouse detected" message in configurator...but atleast you can play your favorite game :-)
I have something like you've all described with mine occasionally, normally, turning the mouse over and rubbing the laser surround with my finger vigorously is enough to clean off the crud that seems to be causing the problem..
I've never had any software problems or anything with mine..
Go to device manager and uninstall everything under the USB heading and restart your computer. This should reinstall all the drivers and hopefully reinstall your mouse. You may need to rerun the driver you downloaded for the mouse afterwards.
My next suggestion your be to try the mouse on another computer to make sure it is not defective.
