Mouse is whacked

I've got an optical mouse that has stopped working. First the red light was always on and the cursor was not moving at all. Now, the cursor moves when I move the mouse but when I click on an area nothing happens. I'm stuck and have no idea how to get this to work.

First you should check it in any other system if mouse does not work then u should exchange your mouse or open it u can easily repair it..
but if the mouse works then there may be a spyware in ur system so check for it .
best of luck

How do I get the mouse to mouse the mouse cursor


the battery in the mouse makes the red light come on, not the operating system.
Look in Device manager,find the mouse, uninstall the drivers, scan for new devices, re-install the drivers.
Otherwise look for new drivers on manufacturers site.

My mouse cursor will not move on the screen when I try to use my new wireless mouse. The light comes on on the bottom of the mouse and the USB is plugged into the computer. The USB blinks red when plugged...


Hello, hope this isn't a silly suggestion, but have you pressed the 'connect' buttons on the mouse and receiver so that the 2 devices can synchronize?
Regards,

Sir, i want to know about the optical mouse in detail. what is the important point of it to use. thanks, tin


Hi,
Optical mouse was developed by Agilent Technologies and introduced to the world in late 1999, the optical mouse actually uses a tiny camera to take 1,500 pictures every second. Able to work on almost any surface, the mouse has a small, red light-emitting diode (LED) that bounces light off that surface onto a complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensor.
The CMOS sensor sends each image to a digital signal processor (DSP) for analysis. The DSP, operating at 18 MIPS (million instructions per second), is able to detect patterns in the images and see how those patterns have moved since the previous image. Based on the change in patterns over a sequence of images, the DSP determines how far the mouse has moved and sends the corresponding coordinates to the computer. The computer moves the cursor on the screen based on the coordinates received from the mouse. This happens hundreds of times each second, making the cursor appear to move very smoothly.
Optical mice have several benefits over wheeled mice:
No moving parts means less wear and a lower chance of failure.
There's no way for dirt to get inside the mouse and interfere with the tracking sensors.

Increased tracking resolution means smoother response.
They don't require a special surface, such as a mouse pad.

Although LED-based optical mice are fairly recent, another type of optical mouse has been around for over a decade. The original optical-mouse technology bounced a focused beam of light off a highly-reflective mouse pad onto a sensor. The mouse pad had a grid of dark lines. Each time the mouse was moved, the beam of light was interrupted by the grid. Whenever the light was interrupted, the sensor sent a signal to the computer and the cursor moved a corresponding amount. This kind of optical mouse was difficult to use, requiring that you hold it at precisely the right angle to ensure that the light beam and sensor aligned. Also, damage to or loss of the mouse pad rendered the mouse useless until a replacement pad was purchased. Today's LED-based optical mice are far more user-friendly and reliable.

Thanks and regards,

Mikomi 3 Button Mini Optical Mouse AM-9170U Not Working!


On an optical mouse, two thngs happen. The light shines out and a sensor reads the reflection almost like a camera image. Try some other surfaces, particularly ones which are not shiny. If that doesn't help, install the mouse on some other computer. If that works, reinstall your drivers on the first computer, removing the old ones as best you can (Control Panel...Device Manager...etc.). If it doesn't work on the other computer, check for any switches on the mouse (that would be uncommon) and for warranty coverage. Otherwise, the light sensor is probably broken and there is little you can do.

Mouse stopped working, but appears ok, batteries ok, can't determine problem


Hope this helps others. My mouse stopped controlling cursor but buttons worked. Problem was it would not work on a black table. Slip a piece of white paper under it and waaala! It works. I'm thinking optical mouse and dark surface might be an issue.
