I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I tried to contact Microsoft Tech Support but they wouldn't help me since I was out of the 90 days for Free Tech support, go figure! Anyhow, I keep getting an Error 1101 when I install the software for this mouse. It says the following: Error reading from file c:\windows\TEMP\_isA164\1033.MST

How can I resolve this error so I can use the full capability of this mouse?

Does anyone know if microsoft will ever release a Serial version of their IntelliMouse Optical? Yes, it's sad, I only have a serial port, and nobody seems to make mice that are compatiable with it(they're all USB and/or PS/2).

I'm not sure about this, but i think it'd be tehnologically impossible to make a Serial optical mouse. I don't thinik the Serial Port would be fast enough.

Hi all, my computer is all fine and dandy now. Yea! Except for one thing.. I just went out and bought an Intellimouse optical and I installed it. It works and all except the two little side buttons. In the quickstart guide it lets me choose the mouse as the Intellimouse Optical but it only tells about it. Then in the Intellipoint software v4.0 it doesn't have the option to choose intellimouse opt only intellimouse. I'm thinking of downloading v4.1 but it has LOTS of bad reviews. What do i do?

Alright heres the story...

girlfriends comp won't load her wireless logitech mouse, I disconnect my optical explorer bring it over and let her use that until she buys her own. No problems works fine on hers. She gets her new one I bring mine home and reconnect it, boot up, umm no mouse...wha? Yeah me = angry.

So basically I've tried lots of junk, regedit stuff (may have missed a few files possible), updated intellipoint software, tried USB ports.

This is what has happened...it gets detected in the USB port however Win XP doesn't know what the device is...doesn't even know its a mouse.

The lights work, the camera light and the back one. So it doesn't seem to be the mouse. It worked fine on this system only 2 days ago.

Is it possible for viruses to spread to hardware peripherals like my mouse?

I've included pics from "msinfo32"...3 different shots...one showing I have no IRQ conflicts, another showing that I have an "ERROR" and the other telling me what my error is "Device Cannot Start"...real helpful...you'd think it'd tell me why.

My computer is an Alienware P4 1.7Gig...mouse worked fine 2 days ago on this computer and fine on my girlfriends recently bought Dell machine (don't have the exact specs on hand). Any help?

I have been using this mouse for about a year now. I was just surfing on the net today when the mouse froze and would not work (light at the bottom did not light up like usual). I usually connect it to the computer with a PS/2 converter and decided to unplug it from the converter and just plug it in the computer, using its original USB plug and it worked.

However after every about 15 minutes it stops working, every 15minutes I would need to unplug the mouse from the USB port and reconnect again. I have tried my other USB ports, all did the same. Everytime it disconnects on the right bottom it would pop up a message saying "Unrecognizable tool connected" something along those lines however when I do reconnect it it'll recognize it sayin the mouse model.

I was wondering is there a problem with the mouse or is it the computer? Anyway I can "fix" this problem? I'm broke at the moment haha and have no money therefore can't get a new mouse at the moment and this problem is annoying me.

Hi,

I bought Intellimouse optical yesterday. I installed the software. I prefer using Netcape
rather then the explorer. My mouse doesn't work that has the back and the forward on my
mouse. I clicked on explorer and It works. Which version of Netscape will I have to use for the
back and forward?

Thanks a lot,
 

A:Microsoft Intellimouse optical problem?

I have a Wireless Intellimous Explorer and all 5 buttons work in every program that uses a back function. A little advice: I don't use the forward button much, but do use the back. I changed the forward button to function as the close button... because I use that one a lot... works great. Back to your mouse... it is possible it doesn't work with netscape because microsoft made it... and you know how microsoft is. It really should work though, even if you are using netscape. Try upgrading to the latest version and maybe even upgrade your intellimouse software, if there is an upgrade. Also, make sure you have the correct mouse selected in the settings of your software. If you have the wrong one selected the regular left and right buttons should work without software because they are basic, standard functions.

I have a totally new problem with my MS Intellimouse Optical. I have used this for some time (98, ME, XP) with no problems. I now have a new system - Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I have downloaded and installed the latest Intellipoint software (7) from Microsoft, and installed the Mouse. But...
- The Mouse is recognised not as an Intellimouse Optical, but an Intellimouse Web
- I cannot therefore change the side button settings on the mouse (via Control Panel>Mouse) from the default "Forward" and "Back", or the centre button either.
This is annoying. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a number of times, to no avail.

Does anyone know...??
(a) How to get Windows 7 to recognise my mouse as the proper type (Device Manager etc)....or
(b) How to hack the settings (XML / Registry / whatever) to change the default option, so the mouse does what I want it to without trying to change the buttons via the Control Panel.

Many thanks

Hi Walrus1963 and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

When you installed the driver, did you correctly select your mouse model from the dropdown list during installation? If not, uninstall the driver and reboot your machine. Now, reinstall the driver being careful to select the correct model when prompted. What is the model of your mouse?

Recently I have tried to install my Intellimouse Optical USB and PS/2 Compatible mouse onto my dell computer(running with XP), replacing the Intellimouse 1.3A PS/2 Compatable mouse that came with the computer. I went into "Help and Support" and found the appropriate article to tell me how to remove mouse.

"IntelliMouse: The Mouse Pointer Moves Erratically or Does Not Respond with Windows XP (Q321122)"

After following the instructions I tried to install my optical and it still refused to work. One thing that I noticed is that some of the files that they told me to delete were'nt there in the first place. Would all the mouse need to be unpluged while i did this? I'm not sure if anyone could shed some light on what i did wrong with the info i'v given but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way the images captured by an optical mouse be sent via USB and saved in any format?

It's my understanding that the captured images are processed and then the movement data only sent to the USB port. Is there a way I can tweak this?

Little experiment I thought I'd try out
 

A:Optical Mouse as Cam

That would be aaaaaa negative. Optical mice do not capture images, they just have a sensor that detects reflected light back to a sensor.

Let's go way out into dumb question land:

Here's some background. I have registered a website domain and I want to set up a server. Being of the "there's no substitute for cubic inches" mentality, I wanted the fastest reasonable connection to the internet "system". Having done some half baked research into this via the internet, I find there appear to be several options T1/T3 lines etc and the OC-3, 12 etc SONET system. One guy tells me major telecom providers can hook you up with an OC connection if you are located in a relatively large city. OC appears to be the closest connection to the so called internet "backbone". No real research has yet been done on what this would cost per month.

So what form does this take? I envisioned a server (basically a powerful PC) connected to a fiber optic cable coming out of the wall in the basement of a bar in a good sized city.

So how do you connect a fiber optic cable to a PC? Details on the 'net seem somewhat scanty. I looked for some kind of OC PCI card and actually ended up buying a couple of Fore Systems PCA-200 MMF OC-12 PCI ATM NIC Adapters (sic) off ebay for $9.00 each. I figured I couldn't go wrong at that price. I have no bloody idea what these things are and if they'll even work. I don't think they are OC-12 (622 Mbps) but perhaps OC-3 (155 Mbps) but that's probably fast enough at the moment. Anyway, in theory, this card plugs into a PCI... Read more

A:Anyone really know about optical internet?

Need to clear up some layers here..

You have to understand that T1/T3, OC-X are just carriers. These standards say how much data you can shove through that channel. They don't say anything about the format of the data. You can imagine that this is the diameter of a pipe coming into your house. It doesn't say whether the pipe carries sewage, water, gas or cables or whether your utility company supplies any of these.

ATM is a network stack (completely different from ethernet and TCP/IP BTW), that was quite popular in the 90s. It is being phased out now I believe. Yes, you can push internet through ATM too. And yes, you can use both Windows and Linux with it. It may just be that your nearest local ATM loop is 100 miles away, since no one in your area has bothered to deploy it..

First you have to find out what services you have available. Ask your local business-grade ISPs what they can give you. If you are in a reasonably built-up area, then you have a good chance of getting gigabit ethernet (that's 1000Mbps BTW). It has a range of 300 feet, runs over relatively cheap copper wire and plugs into your standard ethernet adapter. All reasonable OS work with ethernet out of the box.

Virtually any USB optical drive -from any reputable brand- should be compatible, in addition to the ones from Dell.  
Speed and features (disk formats it reads/writes) are what matter, as long as the drive supports whatever version of Windows you're using. If you have USB3 ports on the PC, look for a USB3 drive for faster data transfers.

What WAS bad timing I've since turned off System Restore while bug hunting and so cant go back..
I've also found that my Acronis True Image claims it cannot detect ANY hard drives... and I have 3, all of which I see and can access...

I tried running sfc /scannow from command but it tells me the cd I put in was incorrect, it isn't.. so I guess its either not seeing the drive either or is , like me, confused..

I can do a restore from boot but I'm hoping someone can shed some light upon this strange abberation. In CP/Device Manager it show a yellow exclamation next to the optical drives and says its probable the drivers are corrupt.. but its looking more like the IDE system has problems as clearly the HDDs are not being perceived as they should be..

Any ideas??

ND.. the only program that was installed around that time was a trial version of XPRepair which, after it demanded registration to do anything other than detect, I uninstalled thru Add/Remove.. but it didnt go ( ???.. hmmmm?) so I took it out of the startup and physically removed it..

Hi, a shop offered me a P50 (with Xeon E3-1505M v5 processor) equipped with an optical drive. I wonder about this because any where else (Lenovo-Shop etc.) P50 is allways offered without an optical drive. - Is it actual possible to have a P50 with optical Drive?- Why there are no more offerings with P50 equipped with an optical drive?- Is the offer above OK or is something wrong with it?- Should I better take a P50 without an optical drive? Thanks for any advice!

A:P50: With optical Drive (DVD) or better without?

I think there is no way to include an optical drive into the P50 without cutting/breaking the chassis...

My Inspiron 620 desktop came with a DVD/CD that apparently can only be opened ("eject")  if the OS is running. How can a recovery disk be used if the OS won't load and the drive door cannot be opened ?

A:Optical disk use

The red arrow is pointing to the button of the first drive, the green box is around the button of the second drive. The buttons are the vertical, rectangles that are flush with the drawer and case:
In this configuration Boot / Recovery Media should be in the TOP drive.  The 2nd drive is an option.

The Slim Model has only 1 button HERE:

I just installed the MS trackball optical and I can't get the back-forward buttons to work. They only work if I'm in the USER'S GUIDE or in Explorer. I went to the web page and I downloaded the newer version of Intellipoint(version4) and I also downloaded their user guides. When I tried to access them the computer said "file hh.exe could not be found." I am a novice-please go easy on me-I need details. I have an eMachines computer and Windows ME.

I have final realized I need a new optical drive. Mine will not read a DVD although it does still read
CDs. My question is what is a good replacement for a ATAPI iHAS124 C ATA Device? It has a
SATA interface. Bottom line is, what is a good inexpensive SATA optical drive?
