Question about Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer

1 Answer

Thanx much! I also had something sticky get into my mouse and needed instructions. Yours was the only one I fond that stepped me through it. Though I did not shave anything down, the wheel is now back moving freely. My only problem is now that the wheel will not do any scrolling. Did I miss something? Thanks for your help!

    All I actually did was remove the sticky residue from the spilt soda.


     I shaved nothing down, I disconnected nothing electrical and everything went back together actually very easily.


     Was there something in the axis that connected to anything? Or maybe I accidentally blocked what sensor read the rotation of the wheel with something that I thought was removed but instead got on that sensor? 


    Other than the wheel, it works fine.

    Maybe you can try opening up the mouse again and see if any residue has blocked or sensor?

Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys


Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

Need 'step-by-step' instruction to install a USB 2.0 4-PORT Hub. Please know that I am NOT computer 'savvy'! Thanx - Pat B


We all have to start somewhere! The simplest way is to see where your mouse is currently plug-in your computer: look for an identical 'USB' socket to the one the mouse is plug-in and plug the USB hub cable plug to this socket. You could also just unplug your mouse from the computer socket and plug the USB hub cable instead AND THEN plug the mouse in one of the socket on your Hub. The computer should automatically install the software require to drive your newly installed USB hub. Hope it helps!

Keyboard sticks .and also the mouse will jump into another


hi friend,
Erratic Mouse
  1. The solution for an erratic mouse involves going into the registry on Windows. Backup your registry files. Never make changes to the registry without doing this. Go back into the registry. Go to the editor. Locate the key phrase that reads: hkcu---control panel---mouse. Delete this line from the registry. Close the registry editor. Shut down your laptop. Wait for 5 minutes. Reboot your laptop. Windows will create a new registry key for you. This should solve any erratic mouse problems.
  2. Mouse Not Found on Laptop Boot Up
  3. The laptop mouse is plugged in. You boot up your PC. The mouse isn't found. Chances are the mouse cable came slightly unplugged. Unplug the mouse. Re-plug the mouse into the laptop port. The laptop should recognize the mouse. Reboot the laptop if it is still not working after you check the cable.
  4. Mouse Moving Slowly
  5. A laptop mouse that is moving slowly is probably dirty. This type of equipment is prone to collecting dust and dirt. It's like a magnet for dirt. The solution is to clean the laptop mouse. Unplug the laptop mouse from the computer. Remove dirt particles from the optical mouse with a pair of tweezers. Make certain the eye area is clear. A small piece of debris can cause an optical mouse to move slowly. Remove the ball from the mouse, for a standard mouse. Wipe the ball with rubbing alcohol. Wipe the inside of the mouse with a dry cotton swab. Remove all debris and dirt. Replace the ball.
  6. General Mouse Tips
  7. Clean the work area where you will use your laptop mouse. This will reduce the amount of dirt that collects in the mouse.

    Work in areas that don't have high traffic for pets. Sitting with your pet cat or dog in your lap and using your laptop is not a good idea. The laptop mouse will attract and catch pet hair and dander, requiring you to clean it more frequently.

    Wash your hands prior to using your laptop or your laptop mouse. This will keep the equipment cleaner to make it last longer. Less maintenance will be required for both the laptop and the laptop mouse.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); instructions for sticky keyboard: Step 1 Soak up spills immediately after they occur. This not only reduces the risk of damage, it prevents much of the fluid from spreading beneath the keys. Use a towel, cloth or anything else you have handy at the moment.
  • Step 2 Unplug the keyboard from the computer or disconnect the power supply if you are using a laptop keyboard. Make certain nothing else is connected to the keyboard and unplug any USB devices.
  • Step 3 Pop the keys off your keyboard using a dull knife or flathead screwdriver. Do this slowly and carefully to avoid damaging the keys or the keyboard.
  • Step 4 Place the keys in a bowl full of warm soapy water, and let them soak for 20 to 30 minutes. Dish detergent is effective at removing dirt, oil and stickiness.
  • Step 5 Use a damp, lint-free cloth to wipe the large areas of the keyboard. A cotton swab can be used in smaller spaces and around the edge of the keyboard.
  • Step 6 Set the keyboard aside, upside down, on a towel and leave it to dry for several hours. This will also allow any trapped fluid inside the keyboard to drain out.
  • Step 7 Wash off any remaining dirt, oil or debris from the keys. Use a cotton swab to clean inside of each key, if necessary. Rinse the keys very well with warm water and set them on a towel to dry.
  • Step 8 Replace the keys once the keyboard and keys are fully dry. If your keyboard is still sticky, fluid likely leaked deep inside the keyboard. You can attempt to clean the internal part of the keyboard by yourself, but this will void the warranty and risk further damage. Either purchase a new keyboard or send yours to the manufacturer for repair.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Using a can of pressurized air to clean your keyboard will remove any loose dirt and debris but will not get rid of stickiness or oil residue. Take a photo of your keyboard before removing the keys to make replacement easier.

    You send two pages of instructions with the keyboard, and supply the same information on the CD. Not everyone that buys your products is a computer geek, where you read the short instructions once and you...


    Hi there Mr. Frank

    ... do I understand a volunteer and maybe even a "expert moderator" volunteer sent you two pages of instruction AND a keyboard from Fixya.com? I'm not aware that Fixya.com sells anything, though they do have advertising which support the service. (Of course I have only been here a short time myself) Is it possible you purchased something from one of these advertisers? You might address your comments to that seller.

    What ever the case, I am sorry you were not served well by the printed instruction you received. Please let me give it a try.

    Who ever you originally were served by received your comments and they also came to me because your question falls also under my listed expertise.

    When you installed the software, there were drivers installed on your computer as well as instruction and 'how to set' examples installed on your computer for your devices. Traditionally, these items will go into the Control Panel. Windows has a folder called "ControlPanel" and if you arent aware of how to access it - well click on Start then find Control Panel and click again. Look for a folder that has a name like keyboard or mouse or optical mouse or something similar.

    The thing on your desk you call a mouse, the instructions call a device. The switches are necessarily small because a mouse is a small device - not much room to put stuff inside. If this mouse is inconvenient for you to use ... go to a office supply place and get one that you are more comfortable with. You may find you prefer a device called a "Track Ball" which is a upside down mouse with larger 'switches'.

    You can use a wireless mouse and a wire keyboard if you like ... and the reverse is also true. just as you can connect to your computer all by wire or all by wireless. Some devices use a standard microsoft style plug while others might use a USB (Universad Serial Bus) type plug. Others (though rare) might use "Fire Wire". USB (sorry to confuse you) also comes in USB (1) and USB (2). Newer computers use USB 2. You should use only one mouse and one keyboard at a time. There shuld be some instruction on what to do with a touch pad or keyboard or mouse that you choose not to use. Frankly, with a laptop, id prefer to use only the touch pad.

    Optical devices generally know how far to go by counting something on your mouse pad or your desk - somehow judging speed and converting it to distance, speed and direction... somethng like that. In a mechanical mouse, the ball rolls against a pair of axels attached to wheels which spin past a light sensitive transister. That transistor counts the "flashes" it sees and converts that information to direction, speed and space.

    I hope you find come value in these comments. We are volunters here and are therefor not paid. We do get "bragging rights" and your satisfaction and posting of positive comments and remarks is what we seek. If you need more assistance, please ask, keeping in mind we are NOT the manufacturer but just men and women sitting at home trying to help you with your trouble.

    Thank you for this opportunity to be of service.

    Sticky mouse


    Search for out other postings here at FixYa. The sticky situation is one I had, but it was the actual wear inside the mouse buttons to microswitch contacts. I would have to click numerous times to get my mouse to function. The plastic pads get worn after some intense use. Check for our solutions here in other postings.
