Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse

1 Answer

Mouse left click button does not always make contact.

Mouse has been in use since 06-01-06. The left click button will at times not respond. The batteries are good. Tapping the moouse flat on a table surface makes it work for 5 or 6 more clicks. It seems that the contact points inside the unit are needing cleaned. How does this particular unit disassemble for cleaning?

Hi RPM GUY, I have a couple of these too but what you?re describing is just the button wearing out from lots of use. Since it?s less than one year old it probably still under warranty, taking it apart would definitely void it. I would contact Microsoft hardware support and try for a warranty replacement. If you want to go ahead anyway remove the 2x batteries and you will see a screw inbetween. Remove it and the bottom half will come appart. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the post.

When you change the left mouse pointer to be the right mouse pointer in the settings of the mouse, then if the right mouse button stops working, it is a software problem and reinstalling drivers is the way to go. If on the otherhand the left mouse button still does not respond, then there is a problem with the switch in the mouse. This is hardware related. Either clean the mouse or buy a new one.

Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys

Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

Hp mouse clicking two times when i am only clicking once

I have had the same problem with my Logitech wireless optical mouse and it has always been an indicator that my mouse's battery is low or almost depleted. If you have a fresh battery and it is still behaving the same way then the contacts under your "left click button" could be wearing down or malfunctioning. Also there are some basic mouse control settings found under START-->Control Panel -->Hardware and sound-->devices and printers-->Mouse
