Hi, the problem here is your mouse. You have a bad driver or one wasn't loaded. Most of the time, this is a problem with an "off brand" mouse which will only work if the propriety drivers are loaded. You will need to either load the proper driver or try another mouse. I would try another if someone can lend you one.

Another thing could be that one of the buttons is stuck down on the mouse and when you pass over a link it acts like a double click and launches the site or the program.

Another thing to note: Is this a replacement mouse? Meaning that the original mouse died and this was it's replacement without loading drivers but actually, using the old drivers from the old mouse could cause issues. -Sorry if that sounds confusing-

My mouse pad enter not working tel me


"My mouse pad enter not working tel me"

First off, always remember when describing a computer problem or anything else for that matter, more is better. That being said, it is very hard to diagnose an issue such as the mouse pad enter is not working; it could be that the laptop was dropped and something in the hardware is loose and not connecting, especially if this happens all the time no matter what program or software you are in.
I would recommend that if you come on here and see this post to add more detail in the comments section.

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse


The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

You send two pages of instructions with the keyboard, and supply the same information on the CD. Not everyone that buys your products is a computer geek, where you read the short instructions once and you...


Hi there Mr. Frank

... do I understand a volunteer and maybe even a "expert moderator" volunteer sent you two pages of instruction AND a keyboard from Fixya.com? I'm not aware that Fixya.com sells anything, though they do have advertising which support the service. (Of course I have only been here a short time myself) Is it possible you purchased something from one of these advertisers? You might address your comments to that seller.

What ever the case, I am sorry you were not served well by the printed instruction you received. Please let me give it a try.

Who ever you originally were served by received your comments and they also came to me because your question falls also under my listed expertise.

When you installed the software, there were drivers installed on your computer as well as instruction and 'how to set' examples installed on your computer for your devices. Traditionally, these items will go into the Control Panel. Windows has a folder called "ControlPanel" and if you arent aware of how to access it - well click on Start then find Control Panel and click again. Look for a folder that has a name like keyboard or mouse or optical mouse or something similar.

The thing on your desk you call a mouse, the instructions call a device. The switches are necessarily small because a mouse is a small device - not much room to put stuff inside. If this mouse is inconvenient for you to use ... go to a office supply place and get one that you are more comfortable with. You may find you prefer a device called a "Track Ball" which is a upside down mouse with larger 'switches'.

You can use a wireless mouse and a wire keyboard if you like ... and the reverse is also true. just as you can connect to your computer all by wire or all by wireless. Some devices use a standard microsoft style plug while others might use a USB (Universad Serial Bus) type plug. Others (though rare) might use "Fire Wire". USB (sorry to confuse you) also comes in USB (1) and USB (2). Newer computers use USB 2. You should use only one mouse and one keyboard at a time. There shuld be some instruction on what to do with a touch pad or keyboard or mouse that you choose not to use. Frankly, with a laptop, id prefer to use only the touch pad.

Optical devices generally know how far to go by counting something on your mouse pad or your desk - somehow judging speed and converting it to distance, speed and direction... somethng like that. In a mechanical mouse, the ball rolls against a pair of axels attached to wheels which spin past a light sensitive transister. That transistor counts the "flashes" it sees and converts that information to direction, speed and space.

I hope you find come value in these comments. We are volunters here and are therefor not paid. We do get "bragging rights" and your satisfaction and posting of positive comments and remarks is what we seek. If you need more assistance, please ask, keeping in mind we are NOT the manufacturer but just men and women sitting at home trying to help you with your trouble.

Thank you for this opportunity to be of service.

ps spelling and grammer do not count here.

Have a problem with my mouse pad on my laptop


GO into your mouse properties in the control panel and make sure you have the touchpad mouse turned on. This is a link that should give you any drivers you need.

Frozen mouse with a touch pad laptop computer


Check your drivers. Go into the device manager (start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager>human interface device) . If it shows a big yellow question mark, than it is a driver problem.

I would suggest that you either install or download the latest drivers for the mouse, and you can do this even without checking for a hardware conflict as stated above.

You can also access the control panel and trouble shoot your mouse through the mouse icon.

Even sometimes this may not work.....

I had an IBM brand optical mouse that continually plague me with problems until I gave it away with a computer that I built. The person who has it is still have occasionally issues with the mouse even with the proper drivers installed. I believe that it is a connection issue because sometimes the mouse will start working when you jiggle the male USB connection.
