Question about Saitek Cyborg Mouse

1 Answer

I have a wired mouse (R.A.T 7) that only movement doesn't work on only one computer. it has worked on the same motherboard for 4 months and the same hard-drive for 1.5 months just randomly stopped working while watching a YouTube video. Other USB and PS/2 mice work and i have uninstaller all drivers and reinstalled the right drivers for all Devices i even re-formatted my hard-drive to no avail. Another curious weird thing is i can leave it unplugged for a day and i will work for like 2 minutes. If anybody can solve this crazy riddle i would be Very happy as the mouse was $100 and i would rather not buy a different one.

SOURCE: Saitek Pro Flight yoke and quadrant stop working

Seems to me va power problem if you have a lot of other usb components running then you will need auxillary power, you have two choices really, the aformentioned USB card and fit to your MB
Or purchase teh Saitek power supply, and power the yoke direct.

I had the same problem and solved it by removing one of the usb devices form the yoke and putting it a usb slot on the rear of the computer. Mind you I have all the saitek panels as well.

hope this helps

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up (and power switch does nothing!)

Bad setting. If you press and hold the power button, the computer will shut off. That will keep you from having to unplug it.

Go to your control panel of the computer. Click on the tab "Change mouse whell settings" If you do nto find such tab then search for that tab by puttin word "mouse" in the search box.
There you can change scrolling setting. If it doesn't work then remove the wire of your mouse, shut down computer.

How do I connect this keyboard to the computer

Keyboards connect several ways. Older systems use a PS/2 connector (round) that plugs into the purple/gray jack on the back of the computer. The mouse plugs into the green jack next to it.
If you have a USB keyboard, it plugs into any USB slot.
PS/2 connections must be made with the computer off. USB connections work any time. If one slot doesn't work, try another.
If the keyboard doesn't work, try another.

I have had m-uvdel1 dell mouse for a while and over past few days it has stopped working,if i remove it and plug back in it helps for a while but then stops moving again, the weird thing is that the...

These are possible solutions for fixing a M-UVDEL1 USB mouse when the pointer gets stuck.
Computer: Dell Precision 380, OS: Windows XP Pro, SP3
Issue: The Mouse cursor/pointer frequently stops moving - gets "stuck" on the screen. The only way to get it back is to unplug the mouse, then replug it in, or to restart the computer. Uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse driver doesn't work.
Solution #1:
1. Take the mouse apart and clean the insides. Only one screw to remove on the bottom of the unit. The top opens a bit like a **** shell, then lifts off.
2. Make a diagram of the insides. There are 2 wire springs to be careful with, but the insides are simple and easy to clean.
3. Clean out any lint etc. inside the unit . Clean the roller with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol if necessary.
4. Put everything back together.

Solution #2: Turn off power saving setting for the usb port used by the mouse.
1. Click on the green Windows "Start" button, then right click on "My Computer", and click on "Properties".
2. Click on the "Hardware" tab, then click on the "Device Manager" button.
3. Click on the "+" to expand "Universal Serial Bus Controllers".
4. Right click on each listing of the "USB Root Hub" and click on "Properties".
5. Click on the "Power" tab and find the one that lists your "HID-Compliant Mouse".
6. Click on the "Power Management" tab for that USB Root Hub, and deselect "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."
7. Click "OK", close the "Device Manager", then restart your computer to activate the setting.
Solution #3: Having read a number of forums, the actually problem may be due to a video driver issue.
1. Update your computer's video card driver.
Solution #4: The problem may be due to the Video Card Hardware acceleration setting.
1. On a blank space of your desktop, press the right mouse.
2. Select "properties". Click the "settings" tab.
3. At the bottom right of the little window, click "advanced". select the "performance" tab, or whichever tab includes the "Hardware acceleration" slider .
4. Slide the hardware acceleration slider down one notch. click "apply" then "ok".

hope this helps you

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?

Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

My mouse is not working properly. My buttons work but my cursor doesn't move. The light goes on on the top but the light does not light on the bottom.

make sure the battery is good ((has full charge))also you make sure the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable) or if its a lead
make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty
((if applicable)) if this fails to fix the problem you could try it in safe mode
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x right click to update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the driver could be on it
hope this helps

My SYLVANIA mouse model # SY-040R is not working. It worked for about a month and then stopped working. It is a usb retractable optical mouse. Please Help!

optical mice suffer issues like anything else, just because it has no moving parts, doesn't mean it's never going to quit.Try the obvious, move the mouse to another port on this machine or another machine, to confirm the malfunction, after this I would encourage you to take your newly confirmed mistake back to the retailer, as it is only 30 days old.
