Try taking the back off your mouse and cleaning the contacts with a q-tip and some alcohol. I would bet the other wheels inside your mouse could use a cleaning as well. Your mouse should work fine after you clean it.

or

if the left click dont work then it doesnt work unless there is a small fault in there. Can you here the click when you press it?

Truthly mouse and keyboards do not need drivers. So uninstalling and reinstalling will not do anything apart from taking up your time.

If you replace your mouse you will NOT have to get a new keyboard if you want. I have looked on the site that you gave for another mouse and truthly its up to you which one you want to get.

Hope this helps.

Mouse cursor jumping problem, how to fix it?


A mouse is a vital component of your computer and allows you to control certain functions on the screen. When the mouse is not functioning correctly, it can be frustrating. There are a few different reasons why your mouse pointer may jump on the screen. You need to work through the possible causes and troubleshoot the problems to fix your mouse and get it working properly again.

1.
Examine the batteries if you have a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to jump. A low battery may be the cause. Change the batteries and check the mouse again. If it is still experiencing the same problems, proceed to the next steps to resolve the issue.

2.
Switch the wireless transmitter to a different USB port on another computer if possible. There could be problems with the port, causing the cursor to jump. This will resolve the problem if the issue is with the USB port. If the mouse is still jumping, move on to the next steps.

3.
Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen. Right-click on the "My Computer" menu and click on "Properties." Click on the "Hardware" menu and click on "Device Manager." Locate the mouse entry in the list. Right-click on it and select "Update Driver" from the menu. Allow a few moments for the operating system to locate and install an updated driver for your mouse.

4. Remove dust or debris from the mouse pad and mouse with a soft cloth. Dust or debris could prevent the mouse from operating smoothly and cause the cursor to jump. Add a small amount of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth before you begin. Wait for the alcohol to dry on the pad and mouse prior to using.
5. Go to the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Mouse" icon and click on "Mouse Pointer." Decrease the speed of the mouse pointer. This could be causing the cursor to jump.
I hope you find it very helpful.
Thank you.

Left wireless mouse button doesn't work hard to push


This is a mechanical problem for sure. If you have to press hard to get a click, pop the mouse open and carefully look at where the mouse button is supposed to touch the micro switch. It might have been damaged by a heavy finger, etc. Any hobby-minded person can cook up a solution to restore this plastic finger so it will aim and hit the micro switch correctly

My wireless optical mouse is no longer working


You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.

*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

Try this, If you have an external mouse port, attach another mouse, reboot laptop. If mouse works, depends on operating system? Goto control panel, mouse icon and see if you might have diabled or changed mouse key to use the right key?
