Question about Logitech Cordless Mouse

1 Answer

My cursor slides off of the screen (by itself) when I click & drag!

My cursor moves across the screen if I try to click and drag something! Sometimes, it also likes to draw squares and rectangles while it does this. It always moves to the right on a diagonal until it hits the top of my screen... & then it just keeps on sliding until it's off the screen! I try to click the buttons during this but it does not respond until I take the "brand new" batteries out and put them back in. HELP!!!

    my cursor goes directly to the top right corner of the screen and keeps going as far as it physically can. I can move it back but it shoots right back up there again. My mouse is a microsoft optical mouse and has worked fine for ages. I thought it might be a virus and looked at the processes screen with much difficult as the only way i can use the mouse is by using the laptop controll in the keyboard to steady the movement then use the external usb mouse to click what i need to. I saw a process called drager flash up then vanish, is this a virus/ trojan. I did virus scans with norton and nothing, this morning i woke up to have another go at fixing the issue and the problem has reversed its now going to the bottom left of screen and acting the same way. It just returns when i move it away. please help if you can :)

Seems there is something internally wrong in your mouse or you use the mouse on a very strange material base. I have heard that optical mouses can have strange behavior when used on glass tables or thick woolen carpets, a mouse pad would solve it. If that does not work and it's still under warranty, just ask for replacement or repair.

How do I reset the channel for the mouse and keyboard?

Dear Sir,

plzz follow this step to solve your probel

icon on the desktop. Click the "Change a Setting" choice in the left column. In the window that appears, double-click the "Keyboard" icon. This dialog box handles all settings for your current keyboard. Another path to the control panel is to click the "Start" button at the bottom left of the screen. Roll the mouse pointer up to "Settings" and click "Control Panel."
  • Step 2 Reset the character repeat settings. The speed of character repeat and the delay before repeating starts is adjustable with sliding level indicators. Click on the adjuster and hold your finger on the mouse button to drag the adjustment left or right.
  • Step 3 Change the cursor blink rate. A faster blink helps to locate the cursor while moving it with the arrow keys. Change the blink rate by dragging the slide to the left or right for slower or faster.
  • Step 4 Enable the keyboard to accommodate one-handed typing or foreign languages. Click on the "Input Locales" tab near the top of the dialog box. Click the "Add" button for choices of available languages. Click the "Properties" button for choices to include Dr. Dvorak’s keyboard layouts for two-handed typing or single-handed typing with either hand.
  • Step 5 Identify and correct keyboard malfunctions. Click the "Hardware" tab on the dialog box. The current keyboard will be listed under devices. The functioning status of the keyboard is displayed, and a troubleshoot button is active for use anytime. Make a first attempt to resolve keyboard problems by clicking this button.

    Mouse has a mind of it's own...often skipping across the screen without any assistance. Is there a patch available?

    it might be due to scroll speed of mouse going bit high.
    to adjust the on start...control panel...mouse icon...mouse properties window would open... click on the pointers tab...adjust the pointer speed setting... this should help in fixing the issue.

    Mouse moves, click and drag by itself

    That sounds a lot like someone has remote access to your computer. Try changing your Firewall settings or try to get a different IP address. Careful messing around with the IP though, it's easy to create a problem when doing that.

    USB mouse is jittery

    Try the mouse on a different surface, also be sure you do not have any light directed at the mouse - this confuses the eye. Although no mouse pad is required for an optical mouse, sometimes it helps

    Need the ability to "tab" from field to field on right of kybd

    When you press ENTER to finish working in a cell, Microsoft Excel moves the cursor one cell down by default. However, you can select the direction in which you want the cursor to move.
    1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
    2. On the Edit tab, do one of the following:
      • To change the direction in which the cursor moves, select the Move selection after Enter check box, and then select a direction in the Direction box.
      • To keep the cursor in the current cell, clear the Move selection after Enter check box.
    Note When a range or set of ranges is selected, pressing ENTER moves the cursor within the range or set or ranges only.

    Cursor sliding off screen

    I?ve had this problem in several Logitech mice. In every one of my cases the problem was resolved by uninstalling the driver and reinstalling the latest OR just using the default Windows driver. In some cases with USB mice I had to shut down the PC, remove the original mouse and replace with a standard PS2 mouse, remove and reinstall the driver and then reattach the USB mouse without rebooting. After a successful test you can shutdown the PC and remove the PS2 mouse. Let us know if that works and if you have any other questions and thanks in advance for rating this post.
