The Impossible Mouse!

Q: The Impossible Mouse!

I have what would seem at first to be a very simple problem with my wireless mice, but all of my attempts at solving it have yielded no progress. I am hoping for someone hardware-savvy to help me out. Here's my schtick:

I began experiencing skipping with my wireless mouse just subtle enough to irritate me and throw off my game (Dota and the like) a few weeks ago. I was using, at that time, a larger Logitech mouse. Unfortunately, I can't recall the make of it, but I had been using it for at least two or three years. One of my front USB ports on my machine doesn't work at all, but I tried the back of my tower and also on the side of my secondary monitor. No improvement. So naturally, I concluded that either my mouse or receiver was just aged and in need of replacement.

I have now been using this Logitech m510 for a week, but the slight skipping is still there, at times more or less noticeable. This led me to believe it was a trouble with the surface of my wooden desktop. I cleaned it thoroughly-- nothing. I tried a mouse pad-- nothing. The receiver is in clear sight directly beside my shoulder, so I would like to think that interference could not possibly be so sensitive. Where is the trouble? Coincidentally ALL of my USB ports?

My PC is a decently powerful machine, I built it within the last year. I am running Win7 64-bit from a Corsair Force 3 SSD with an i5-2500k CPU and 8GB of RAM. My GPU is an AMD Radeon HD 6800. Any ideas? If you need more information from me, let me know and I will gladly pass it along.

Preferred Solution: The Impossible Mouse!

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.)

Genius required. My USB mouse doesn?t work on a particular pc, motherboard is lite-on tech 08fch. PC is a HP dx2000 and runs XP. Mouse is a Logitech, it works with all other PC?s 100% and there is definitely nothing wrong with it.

Symptoms:
-Upon loading PC, mouse will work for 5 seconds then stop working completely
-As normal there is a led under the mouse which goes off/out when mouse stops working
-Mouse will not work until i disconnect and reconnect it - this allows it to work for only another 5 seconds until exactly the same thing happens again
-Device Manager gives exclamation mark and Error code 43

What I have tried and hasn?t worked
-Uninstalling mouse and rebooting PC
-Updating the driver
-Reformatting my PC
-Removing power cord for a duration and reconnecting it
-Resetting the bios
-Removing the cmos battery
-Resetting the JP3 jumper
-Smacking my PC

A couple of months ago, I notice that my wireless mouse was starting to hesitate and lag. Usually, I could move the dongle to a different USB port and that would solve the issue for a while. However, a couple of days ago, it started getting really bad. Now it doesn't matter what port it is in. I have tried: updating/reinstalling all mouse drivers. Nope. I even bought a new Microsoft mouse with a big "Windows 10 ready" sticker on it. Nope. Other mice have the same issue, too. Not sure what to do next. Basically, my computer is a 25-lb paperweight if I can't get my mouse working properly. I did look at some threads on this forum with folks who had similar issues and tried a few things there (disabling Realtek as startup was one idea. Another suggesting to turn off the "scroll when hovering over an inactive window" in settings.), but none of those worked, either.

I've been using Windows 10 ever since it was released last summer, so I don't know why this problem is appearing now. Seems like something that would crop up on a brand new build.

A:mouse lag/stutter makes it almost impossible to work

Oh yeah....and a Microsoft bulletin suggested the "sfc/scannow" approach. It didn't find anything wrong.

Dear all,
I have a strange problem with my laptop (toshiba satellite pro U300, operative system windows xp professional). The left click of the mouse is working completely random. When I open ANY new window sometimes it works sometimes it does not. And when it does not work i cannot click anywhere else (the mouse pointer still moves though). The only solution is pressing ctrl-alt-canc, opening task manager and closing it right after (i do not need anything else, just opening and closing it). In this way it starts to work again. Other noticed problems: when i use firefox most of the time i click over a link the window suddenly loads back to the previous displayed page, as if i had pressed the backspace button. Finally when i use thunderbird if i click for example over "incoming mails" it sudden jumps over "sent mail" or some other place. It is impossible for me to work. And guys IT IS NOT THE MOUSE, because i tried to disconnect it and using the touchpad and i have the same problem. I restarted twice the computer but nothing changed. I scanned my pc with AVG, there was a virus called Gaelicum.A (see log below) but it was healed (note that the exe files within the path C:\condivisa\incidenze2.1.0 are fortran files that i wrote and compiled, they are not virus. I restarted other 2 times but it is still not working.
Any suggestion?
thank you very much
Alberto

HI all,

I need help to undertand if is possibile resolve this possible issue.

I have an ACER Revo 3610r, Atom 530 processor, I'm using it with a wireless Enermax Aurora micro keyboard (with trackball included).

I would use RDP from my work pc
Unfortunately after I've taken the control from my work pc I'm not able to use the wireless keyboard on the host (Acer revo ) so I've to restart with the shutdown /R command.

I have tried to use a wired mouse and all works fine so I think the problem is a bios or windows issue.

Can anyone suggest me a way to resolve this problem?

A:Remote Desktop Connection: Impossible use wireless keyboard and mouse

Have you tried reinstallin the driver? Maybe you should run the remote desktop connection, then plug in your wireless mouse and keyboard so the remote computer detects it. This should work.

Hi guys,

New here, so I hope I'm not out of line asking for help, and that I'm asking correctly. I've exhausted my own ideas on this but the problem is driving me IN.SANE.

THE ISSUE:
When using an external (USB) mouse with my ASUS Win7 laptop, the mouse randomly lifts up and re-clicks while clicking or while dragging (despite the button remaining consistently depressed), resulting in selection of the wrong objects, inadvertent double-clicks, and incorrect dragging. From what I can tell, this affects only the left click and not the right.

WHAT I'VE TRIED:
Laptop touchpad - no problem. Everything works fine with the built-in touchpad.
Another mouse - same problem. These are wired mice, so it's not a battery or connection issue.
Another USB port - same problem in all four. There's no visible issue with the motion of the mouse/cursor, so it seems to be communicating OK via USB.
Safe Mode - no problem, from what I can tell. The wired USB mouse seems to click and drag as normal in Safe Mode.
Mouse Settings - no effect. Adjusting the click/double-click/drag settings doesn't seem to change anything.
System Resources - no effect. Clicking/dragging seems to show the same results in the RAM/CPU monitors whether I'm having the problem (with the mouse) or performing the same actions without the problem (with the trackpad).

WHAT I CANNOT FIGURE OUT:
What haven't I ruled out? What else could be causing the issue?

The problem came on suddenly after about a year, but I... Read more

A:Mouse problem: Any external mouse. Touchpad OK. Mouse OK in Safe Mode.

Hey mate, and welcome,

Possible problem:
1. Mouse itself is bad. Either the button itself or internally
2. Driver is not at its best

Try:
Going to the mouse manufacture website to download the most recent driver for your Windows 7, either 32 or 64 bit. If it doesn't work, try without any driver (so that windows driver takes over).

I have a relatively new Dell XPS 410 running Windows XP Media Center Edition. I am extremely exasperated over a problem that seems unfixable. Every time I start the computer, I get a pop-up appearing right before the user log on screen. It says "Fixed" and will not let me exit out, so I can only perss "OK" to bypass it. The log on screen is normal and any user can be selected to log on. But, when selcted to log on, it loads personal settings, flashes the desktop and immediately logs off and saves the settings. I can not get to the desktop, so I can not scan for viruses or delete files. I really don't want to hear the computer is forever inoperable. Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi! I'm new here -- noticed that a few people had the same problem I'm having with IE Pop-Ups, so I thought I'd look for some help. Spyware scans and pop-up stoppers couldn't cut it and my virus scanner finds nothing wrong.

Though I can only check back here every now and then, and not on the weekends (I apologize in advanced for slow replies), I was hoping that someone might have some ideas on where to go to fix this!

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success.

Not only this the computer is constantly going into BSOD often times for "missing registry components". The memory is a little too small for all of the business programs put on the computer. I've ran at least four different types of spyware and virus removers in safe mode, they remove a few small spyware ads from caselmedia but there is never any kind of virus detected on the computer. Please help me out, I would really appreciate it if someone out there knows what to do. Thanks a bunch.

Hey Hey - Happy Holidays all!!

Got a machine running XP Home SP1 and it started having strange IE problems, like not displaying backgrounds on some sites [they were mostly php Nuke sites]; then it started crashing all the time when going to Windows Update site. Then started crashing all the time unpredictably and couldn't find a pattern.

No virus [Norton clean], no spyware or adware [Webroot SpySweeper clean]
Tried reinstalling XP but to no avail
Tried to install SP2 in hopes that it would over write problems, BUT it WILL NOT install - - goes for a while and then just stops - - no messages, nothing, just stops install - attempted it 4 times and got a partial install is all; had to uninstall that.

Any ideas? Please!!

Thanks all and have happy, healthy holidays

A:IE impossible to solve? What else can I try?

I don't have XP so I have no first hand knowledge of it. However, you will find links to articles about failed SP2 installs in this list;http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/best_of/xpsp2links.htm

As for your original IE problem, I wonder if you can still try to 'repair' IE like you could in the older OS's?. To do it, you went to Add/Remove, selected IE to uninstall, and then were given the option to repair it.

Assuming that is still possible in XP, I am not saying it will help your problem because I just don't know.

Not sure if this is possible, but here goes.

A client of mine, has given me this Access application that they would like to make changes/enhancments to it. The problmem is this application has been package using the Access wizard which creates the executible file and all the DL files, but the client doesn't have any idea where the development copy is located. So I'm asking, is there a way to get behind this application to see the code once its packaged?

Ok the problem is my internet connection, it connects but doesn't work: For example, I will start my laptop and it will automatically connect, i will then open firefox and it will work, for about five minutes that is, to which i then have to "repair" my connection. Also i've noticed that when i try to open msn i have to "repair" or when i send/receive webcam viewings, also if i have my browser working but then decide to download something via uTorrent i will have to "repair" it.... All my drivers are updated and i have checked my firewalls, i have used this laptop on other peoples wifi and it has worked fine which made me think it was my router but there are 3 other computers connected to which they have no problem, i have tried a full default reset of the router to which no avail and i have tried ipconfig / release and ipconfig /renew which also didn't work.

please if anyone can help it would end so much misery i use my laptop a lot and this is driving me crazy.

Hello boys and girls. About one year ago, my 500GB Western Digital MyBook hard drive died when I unplugged it from my motherboard. It lived a long life. It was time for it to die. I figured maybe a power surge killed it since I didn't "Safely remove the hardware". The computer it died on was built by myself. It was an Asus motherboard and a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit OS. I was convinced that my data was lost, so I bought a 500GB Toshiba Canvio portable USB drive in the color black. I plugged it into a rear USB 2.0 port. It was recognized for about three seconds, and then Windows displayed a yellow popup from the bottom right corner of the taskbar saying "The device has malfunctioned". A new hard drive? Come on. I brought it downstairs to my dads Vista machine, and it worked just fine. I scratched my head, and for kicks, I tried my "dead" MyBook on the same machine. It worked! I could see all my data!

After this, I figured it was a bad motherboard. Since none of the ports on the computer were working with it. (Mind you, mice, flashdrives, printers, keyboards, hubs, etc. were all functioning fine on the system). It was ONLY mass storage USB devices that were not working. I waited about a year and built a new computer. New EVERYTHING. Windows 7 OS, Asus motherboard, and all that good stuff. I was so excited to finally be able to use my USB hard drive again. I missed my data. But... It didn't work. It makes the usb "Bee-boop" but will no... Read more

This computer was recently used to look for a certain video online, and, unsurprisingly, it got a virus and/or some spyware. My homepage gets redirected to a million spyware protection sites (which seem like they're the hijackers themselves) and I'm having a hard time fixing it.

OK, this is not a hasty reaction - I've had a laptop with Windows 7 for over a year and I cannot use it, at all. I've tried many, many times over the last year and it has wasted hours and hours of my time just trying to do what I do on my XP desktop. Please don't try to dissuade me - I HAVE TO put XP on my laptop now. W7 is a joke - trying to find files on a memory stick took me an hour today - where was the View button? Where was "arrange files by name"? Instead of some random order courtesy of Microsoft. OK so it's a right click but I want a button! I mustn't go on. I have an XP disk - I could just overwrite W7 and get rid, I think. I am really just asking whether I could/ should keep W7 in the background somehow - in case I am forced into ditching XP at some later stage when MS decide to cease support on it. However if it's complicated and takes more hours of my time, then forget it. So do I just insert my XP disk and go? Or what?

A:W7 impossible - need XP back!

Well you bring up two questions. First is how to install Windows XP and second is should you keep windows 7 in the background.

To install Windows XP, insert the disk in your cd drive, reboot the computer, hit any key to boot from CD, and start the installation process. You have the option to use the whole drive or not. That sort of depends on whether you already have a Windows 7 disk available. If you're that unhappy, I'd simply install Windows XP and be done with it. Sounds like you're unable to get Windows 7 to work as you'd like it, why fight it?

As a cautionary note, make sure you BACK UP ANY DATA YOU DON'T WANT TO LOSE prior to starting the installation of XP. Shortly MS WILL be discontinuing support for XP, but I believe that's in 2014. You still have some time.

One other potential option available to you is if you have Windows 7 Pro, Ultimate, or Enterprise, you are licensed to download and install Windows XP Mode which allows you to run both at the same time.

Hey guys,
I've got a really weird issue and and to be honest am running out of ideas. I was infected with the claro malware this past week which was easy enough to clear up and is completely gone. I noticed this past day that Im pulling a wrong network configuration:
Host IP - 69.219.34.456 (not actual) on my laptop
DHCP server -10.246.224.1
Default Gateway - 69.204.80.1
My DNS servers are correct, my usual scope is 192.168.0.x and gateway of 192.168.0.1.
I can access the internet like usual without issue but can't rdp to any LAN pc's (obviously because of the subnet)
I did a netsh int ip reset command without any success and am kind of at a loss of what to do.
The claro maleware may have nothing to do with it but since it has to do with network settings I figured it was definitely a possibility but it is definitely 100% gone, all of my network settings should be reset to default, I definitely do not have any rogue DHCP servers on my network even though with the default gateway being wrong and still having access to the internet I don't see how that could be it anyway. If any one has any ideas I would be extremely grateful.

Thank You
Tyler

This morning, while attempting to move some files around my Windows 7 64bit laptop began telling me that I didn't have permission to do so, as I needed permission from the "TrustedInstaller". I googled this issue and resolved it by configuring permissions.

Feeling a little suspicious I decided to run Malwarebytes. As I attempted to install it, when asked what language I wanted - the program defaults to "Bosanski". Being that I work in IT and have cleaned hundreds of machines I installed it anyway and was able to blindly walk my way through it and run a scan. It came back clean.

I then went to "Region and Language" in the Control Panel and once I got in there, all the values started scrolling around madly until it settled on "Afrikaans (South Africa).

I then went to download Speccy, as to give you a screenshot of my system specs and the installer did the same thing. It chose the "Portuguese" language. I then tried to download some other programs and they all did the same thing.

Another bug that is happening is that when I attempt to move any files, Windows will not allow me to scroll down...it locks onto "My Documents" and then if I scroll down and choose a different directory...it immediately scrolls back up to My Documents.

I'm at my wits end with this, as googling as brought me nothing. One thread came close to what I was describing but it had no resolution. And most of the things from his log appear identi... Read more

A:Nearly Impossible To Describe, But I'll Try

Trustedinstaller *belongs* to the operating system and should not be moved or modified in any way. Also, keep in mind, just because you scanned with MBAM and came up clean, doesn't mean that your system, is in fact, clean. It sure sounds like malware, or some kind of virus, to me. If you have an installed AV, run a full system scan. Perhaps you could try restoring to a point before you had issues. I don't believe Trustedinstaller would have anything to do with the language issues that you are experiencing.

I was recently trying to download a file on a trusted site (I'd used the site before without any problems). I found this program called optimizer pro on my desktop, so I deleted and uninstalled the program. A couple days afterwards, I see my computer running super slowly and an Optimizer Pro pop-up appears. I go to uninstall it again, and it says the un-installation files are missing. I go download optimizer pro again for the un-installation files and my computer doesn't complete the download. It says -Network Error-, So I go look up a solution on google chrome and all it says is "Try Again Later". So I'm stuck with Optimizer pro which seemingly slows down my PC, and I can't download anything to get it off of my computer because of the constant network error. So I thought maybe there was a solution inside the OS that someone on here knows about.color=#000099]Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum, as suggested by Staff.
