Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 Battery Problem

I've been using this mouse for a year or so now and up until now battery changes have been fine. When the clicking function was starting to become irresponsive, as it does often times when the batteries get low, I went and changed the batteries.

However, the mouse now does not work at all. I've tried using multiple sets of batteries but the cursor on my screen does not move at all now. I've tried reconnecting the signal taker thing and also attempted to connect a wired mouse, but the cursor still won't move. I know that the lights on both the mouse and signal taker thing go on and I've tried moving them different distances appart, still no go.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Similar problem. wiht my IntelliMouse. it sometimes takes anywhere from 2 to several clicks of the left button to activate something on screen like a web link or a file in Windows Explorer. According to Mouse Properties, both the battery level and wireless signal strength are full green. I have replaced the batteries and the problem remains.

    The strange thing is that if I press the buttons on the transmitter and the mouse to re-set the wireless signal then the mouse works fine, at least for a few minutes until it starts requiring multiple clicks again.


    Any ideas?

You say that this has been happening with a wired mouse as well?
In that case, you probably have a kind of virus/malware. Try this first:

Do a full system scan. You may have to temporarily disable/uninstall your current anti-virus if you have one already..
If not, try a system restore.

There are number of reasons and solutions why your mouse isn't working properly. No.1. Resynchronize your mouse to the Pc. It's best to use the reset button for resynchronization. No. 2. Change the Port (Usb port). Sometimes even the small problem with the port created this problem. No.3. Replace the battery. If you are sure about the battery is Live, you can try with another make eg. Sony to Everydy. No.4. Interfaces Problem. Make sure that no electronic items, metal box, Speaker, etc doesn't obstruct the connection. No.5. Driver Update. Update the driver to the latest version. You must update from the particular website. If you are using Microsoft product, you must update the driver from the Microsoft's website. No.6. Different System. Try out the device on several devices not only one. If you still have difficulty, you can visit this site for more details. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838398 Good luck

Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0 - low battery pop up


I would disregard the pop up as in most cases the batteries are still good. I'd use the mouse till it stopped functioning. Why it does that I haven't figured out yet. I beleive a value has to be changed in the Registry. If I figure it out I will let you know.

Couldn't find the answer to the right click mouse button not working.


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Wireless Intellimouse Explorer Not Working.


Normal 0 Normal 0 Recheck the magnifier to see if its set right.
Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud
