Open Question

My mouse pointer occasional freezes, it's not about drivers I uninstalled them, logitech mx 500. This happens when I start java program. It only then. Many people had this problem but non of them knows whats the issue. I know that it is because of java. The second thing is that this also happens when i overload the system, starting some programs that use a lot of memory, so that it become worse.

SOURCE: Jumpy mouse pointer, imprecise. How do I clean it?

Laser mice don't need cleaning.
Try un-installing the driver.
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Human Interface devices" (If you have one). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'mouse' icon there is your problem!
If NOT go ahead and Uninstall the drivers anyhow, It CAN"T hurt!
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Do the same with the "Mice and other pointing devices"
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.

SOURCE: Unresponsive mouse XP unable to initialize device driver for Logitech LX8 laser mouse

Your best course of action would be to use System Restore, based on your response above. Go back to the point where everything worked for you and don't attempt to update your driver again. If it works, don't fix it.

After that if there was something you wanted to accomplish, let us know and we can help you.

SOURCE: Logitech G7 Mouse problems

This is a well documented problem with the G7.  Which sucks b/c this is the best mouse I've ever used.  Thankfully though the problem appears to be the battery contacts on the inside of the mouse just get pushed back with changing the batteries.  Solutions I've read about is putting a few layers of tape on the back of the battery to push the battery further forward agaisnt the rear stop.  A drop of solder on each of the battery contacts would also do the trick, but getting the solder to stick is a trick.  (If you try this, it is very bad to heat up a battery with a soldering iron, so be extremely careful).  A better solution is to take the mouse apart, a brief overview of disembly can be found here,

http://www.bitbenderforums.com/vb22/showthread.php?p=441061

Although since I didn't have teflon tape laying around...if you have used the mouse enough or just push a bit on the pads, you can see the outline of the screw holes, and just cut through the pad w/ an exacto knife.  The one under the label already had scored lines which made that one easy.  Once the cover is off I just used the tip of the exacto knife to pry the contacts out a bit more (remove the battery before disembling), cleaned the scroll wheel off, and put the mouse back together.  Works like new so far, which is good b/c from what I've heard Logitech isn't very good about replacing the mice w/o a recipt (which I think I lost after a week, nevermind 3 years).

Hope that helps, this really is the best mouse.

To work around this problem, turn off the Enhance pointer precision feature: 1. Click Start, click Run, type control mouse, and then click OK. 2. Click the Pointer Options tab, click to clear the Enhance pointer precision check box, and then click OK.
Also see this article from Logitech.

The surface on which you use the mouse plays an important role in its tracking. The optical sensor must use the pattern on the surface to track the position of the cursor. Therefore, using the mouse on a glass or otherwise see-through surface will inhibit the ability of the sensor to track the cursor. Also, if you are using the mouse on a reflective surface, such as a mirror or shiny metal desk, you may experience tracking problems. In both these situations, try using the mouse on a mouse pad or piece of paper. By using the mouse on a white sheet of paper, you can also conserve battery life. Other surfaces that have been known to cause tracking problems are:
  • Some wood grains
  • Grooved surfaces
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

MX 510 freezing


Same problem been getting worse. Figured out that the mouseware driver is outdated and not compatible with win xp. Use logitech's setpoint for mx518 or uninstall mouseware. Now no more freezes
