Question about Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical PS/2 USB Keyboard

1 Answer

Mouse Problems I have the microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical with the ps/2 compatible whatever thing. Anyways I have had this mouse for a little over a year and it has been working fine until recently. When i enter a game called Counter-Strike at random points it will freeze and lock up in a position for 15sec or so then come back for a minute then freeze again.It used to work fine in that game but now it has this problem.I have only noticed it once not working outside the game.Occasionally i hear the usb noise when it is unplugged then plugged back in even though i never touched the plug-in area. Any Suggestions? thankyou,

It's possible that your connector isn't properly seated and/or getting a good connection and the large amount of mouse movement that games like Counter-Strike require could be causing it to unseat and reseat sporadically. If your model is a USB unplug and plug it back in "firmly". also you can try using a different USB port.

The reason it's taking 10-15 seconds is because windows is uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse in your hardware profile every time it loses connection. Since this is a fairly memory intensive operation as far as windows goes and you're already playing a video game (which are notorious for using large amounts of RAM and CPU time) that's just how long it's taking.

If unplugging and reinserting the cable doesn't work, your best solution would most likely be to simply go out and buy another mouse.

Microsoft Optical 1.1A Wheel Mouse Optical - USB, PS/2 (D66-00034)


Hi again,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and the repeat use of FixYa.

Interesting concern, should be pretty straightforward. Anyways, pls try to:
  • update/re-install the driver from Microsoft Download page;
  • alternately, disable the "Allow the computer to turn off..." in the Power Management tab of the USB Root Hub Properties in your Device Manager.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you again for using FixYa.

try one of the method below:
Method 1: Try different ports loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device in the PS/2 port while the computer is running.

To determine whether the problem is related to the ports on the computer, use only the two cables that are included with the wireless desktop receiver, or the single cable that is included with a mouse.
USB keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer.
PS/2 devices loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations: • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer. • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer.If you have to change your configuration, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection.
PS/2 keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer.

Method 2: Install fresh batteries loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Both the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are experiencing problems with.

Method 3: Resynchronize your device to the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To resynchronize the mouse or keyboard to the receiver, follow these steps.

Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse more than six feet away. 1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. 2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

Otherwise, go to the next step. 3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of your mouse or keyboard. 4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.

Method 4: Install the latest software loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If you are troubleshooting a wireless mouse, download and install the latest Microsoft IntelliPoint software. For more information about IntelliPoint software, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/Download.mspx (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/Download.mspx) If you are troubleshooting a wireless keyboard, download and install the latest Microsoft IntelliType software.

Method 5: Clean the mouse lens loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); This problem may occur if you are using an optical or laser mouse and the lens on the mouse is dirty. To clean the lens of an optical or laser mouse, follow these steps: 1. Use a dry cloth to clean the bottom surface of the mouse. 2. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 3. If you see dust on the bottom of the mouse, use a can of pressurized de-ionized air to blow away the dust on the lens. 4. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 5. If the pressurized air canister is not available, blow dry air on the lenses by using your mouth one or two times. 6. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 7. If these steps do not resolve the problem, use a cotton bud to clean the lens without scratching it.
