mouse is not working right

Q: mouse is not working right

Hi. I have a Acer Aspire E17 with a precision touchpad. The touchpad works, but I prefer the mouse. Sometimes when I am using the mouse I hear a strange sound then it stops working. It only lasts for about 10 seconds then the sound returns and the mouse works again. Can anyone pinpoint what the issue is. should I contact Acer? Any assistance will be helpful. Thank you. deanie44

Preferred Solution: mouse is not working right

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.)

A: mouse is not working right

how is the mouse connected, USB, bluetooth, wireless receiver? if it's USB, try a different port,

what is the sound? is it the windows chime when it recognizes a new device is plugged in?

After about 1 minute the mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until I left click mouse. Tool bar on browser also greys out but comes back after left click. Video and sound also are choppy. Not sure if this is related. Flash keeps crashing. Any ideas whats wrong? Windows 7 pro. Asus desktop. This occurs on Firefox, Chrome and IE. This seemed to start after Microsoft update and Flash updates

A:Mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until left click of mouse

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

Recently I installed a Microsoft wireless mouse and it is working. But the wired mouse is now sporadic and at times freezes. I have unplugged the wireless mouse and rebooted several times. Even did a system restore.
Also an Excel spreadsheet stopped working with the wired mouse just freezing the screen completely. Even after rebooting, the Excel will open and eventually I will get a cross hair image. I have tried to update the driver on the wired mouse but it says I already have the most uptodate one. I am running Windows 10 64 bit. I scanned with Malware antimalware and it eliminated over 300 items. I am not sure what is going on.
I hope I don't have a virus. I have Norton 360 with my Comcast subscription but now I cannot even see it in my taskbar. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but nothing happens in Control Panel when I try to uninstall.
I have a Dell XPS desktop. As I write the wired mouse is not functioning. If I unplug the mouse and put it back in the mouse port it works for a minute or so and then just dies. I don't even see the red light at the bottom of the mouse sometimes. I just unplugged the wired mouse and now it is working. So it is very odd behavior. I imagine by the time I post this the wired mouse will freeze again as has been the case. In the interim while I wait for a reply, I'll contact Comcast and see if they can help me with the Norton virus software issue.

Hello, i happened to have a problem lately with mouse and mouse pointer. Yesterday i was playing a game and my pc suddenly started freezing and laging. So i hard reset him after that i boot into windows 8 and my mouse wasnt working at all. And pointer was no were to be seen either. Today i tried restoring pc but that dont help me. In bios and in advance startup options mouse is working. So i assume its in the windows. My specs are:

I tried everything except reinstalling windows (OS was installed week ago).

A:Mouse pointer dissapear-mouse not working

I have heard of stability issues on those Gigabyte motherboards where people are having those problems with their mice.

Is your BIOS up to date? maybe it will contain an update on the website for the BIOS that improves system stability.

Is this a PS2 Mouse, or a USB mouse. If a USB, disconnect and then reconnect. If its a USB mouse that is wireless, make sure the battery is good, and if you have another computer, do a test.

Also try to boot from your Windows Installation Media and see if your mouse shows there, could give it a try.

If freezing and lagging during gaming, then could be possible overheating. Do you have a program installed like HWmonitor checking your CPU and GPU thermals. Make sure they aren't getting to hot.

If problem continues to persist. I would start troubleshooting. If you have another computer. or spare hard disk that is SATA, try installing windows on that, and try to duplicate the issue, if it comes back, rule out the hard drive.

Next would be either the GPU, RAM, or Motherboard. You would have to stress test the GPU by using Furmark, or similar program, like MSI Kombuster. If GPU stress test passes, move on to Memory.

while computer is powered down, and PSU off or unplugged. remove and reseat the memory modules, making sure they are fully seated, Do memory diagnostics with memtestx86 or something similar, and do a few passes, If memory check passes, Its more than likely there is a problem with the motherboard.

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

Hey folks,

This is very frustrating and I am at my wits end. I have tried 5 different wireless mice and two wireless keyboards with nearly no success.

Hardware tried:

HP Wireless mouse. Returned to store.
Logitech mk320 mouse/keyboard combo
Logitech m325 (two different ones)
iHome Mouse (works best actually)
Logitech v220 wireless mouse (very old)
Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard 1000

With all of the mice I experience issues where the pointer disappears or seems stuck on elements on the screen, for example, the pointer seems to get stuck on the edges of windows. Pointer motion is erratic at best. With the mk320 and m325 mice the pointer does not stay in one place long enough along with the windows scroll up or down a line or two which leaves me with the pointing device version of "whack-a-mole" attempting to click on something. The v220 is a very old mouse and while it works is resolution is fairly low.

With the microsoft mouse it sometimes stops working and needs to be reset. The keyboard does the same and needs batteries removed and replaced. Sometimes that doesnt work and I need to reboot.

With the keyboard on the mk320 combo some keys don't work consistently and sometimes no keys work. Cycling power fixes the no keys issues, moving the keyboard away from the computer fixes the keys that don't work consistently otherwise.

This issue has persisted with windows 8.0 and 8.1 with two different motherboards. At no point has the wireless transceiver a... Read more

I?ve got a Vista computer running service pack 2
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU [email protected]
RAM 4.00 GB
32 bit operating system

Quite often the mouse stops working. It?s not the mouse itself that it is the problem as the same mouse works on other computers okay. It also makes no difference if it?s a wireless mouse, a USB mouse or a serial mouse.
Restarting the computer doesn?t fix the mouse problem. However if I turn off the computer unplug all connections, (mouse, monitor, speakers etc) reconnect them all again, turn back on the computer the mouse will work for another day or two.
What I?ve done is take it to a computer repair place who replaced the power supply; I?ve since taken it back to the same computer repair shop when the replacing of the power supply hasn?t worked. However they seem incapable of fixing this problem, because of course once they connect a mouse, monitor etc the mouse starts to work again.
Additional Information:
If I look on "Human Interface Devices" on that computer it only shows one device. It says that a Microsoft USB wheel mouse is working correctly, but the mouse in question on that computer is actually a serial mouse. None of the USB ports etc are showing up (?)


Anyone have any suggestions? (My computer knowledge is complete beginner) Maybe this is a hardware problem and perhaps I shouldn't be here...if so please forgive me and be kind

Hi,
As part of trying to install a new joystick on my computer I was adviced to remove all entries under HID Devices in Device Manager.

This led to my mouse, which was one of those entries, to stop working.
When I plug it in Windows will try to install a correct driver, but does not succeed.

I wonder if You could help me fix this somehow, as it is rather time consuming to use the computer, especially the internet, with only a keyboard.

I got into the Device Manager through Start->Run->devmgmt.msc, and the mouse is listed under HID Devices as "Optical USB Mouse", with the telltale yellow exclamation mark next to it. Its status is "This device is not configured correctly (Code 1)., and it shows no driver under the driver tab.

Hi, really could use your help. On startup mouse will not work. It's a PS2 generic mouse with wheel that has been working in the past. I tried a different mouse and it still doesn't work. Rebooting does not help. Did a system restore and mouse worked for 10 or 15 minutes then stopped, frozen. Using tab and other keys I managed to get into driver screen. There was no mouse driver shown, empty. Trouble shooting said no driver present. Later some how it started to work long enough to down load a mouse drive with wheel from MS. It again worked for 10-15 minutes and stopped. It starts to fail by first having jerky motion, freezes, un freezes and the stops completly. Again, got into drive screen and mouse driver was gone...empty. Ran a disc clean-up, defrag, spyware and antivirus with no help. I'm a novice at this so any help would be appriecated. This is a used computer someone gave me 2years ago and I don't have XP CD's. Also, SP2 is installed. Please, when responding, don't use any abbreviations or mid-high level terms. I'm a novice, keep it simple. Thanks in advance.

A:Mouse Not Working

Welcome! Somebody correct me, but I think PS2 mouses are old, old and require an adapter to plug into the right place. I remember having to toss a perfectly good mouse when I upgraded my machine (hard and software); The new ones don't have a ball, they use laser light and are sooo nice; and they have a wheel so you can scroll down a page without having to click and hold. I got a Logitech from BigLots for $8 when they are $28 everywhere else.

I think I read somewhere a condition when a mouse won't work in Safe Mode. Also, was it plugged in when you did your system restore? It should have been, but it sounds like you have given it every opportunity to get a driver; cannot imagine why it does not work, except its not plugged into the same place it was before you did the restore? Or you didn't put the adapter in and plugged it somewhere else? Or there's a short in the cord?

Mouses with a ball do get dirty, and you can sort of clean it, maybe use the vacuum? Why don't you do a search on PS2 mouse and see what you can learn about them. Also, if you go to start - my computer - control panel - system - device manager - hardware you can copy and paste your machine description into Notepad and then fill in some of the blanks describing your machine on your intro sheet.

I hope you don't think I'm asking dumb questions; I started a topic "No sound after system restore" that's getting full of boo-boo stories about plugs and swit... Read more

A:Mouse not working.

To allow temporary control with a mouse, I suggest to plug in either the USB mouse into a PS2 adapter type plug, or just use a regular old style PS2 type mouse, and then re-boot, and the system should detect it. Then you can go into the Device Manager to check on the driver for your Logitech USB mouse and keyboard, which may need to be updated or re-installed. Also there are some settings in the BIOS to enable USB.

A:mouse not working

The Microsoft Explorer mouse (the Blue Track version) is not an Intellimouse. Make sure you select the Explorer mouse when you install the software (or change it in the settings and reboot). Neither mouse uses PS/2. Both are USB mice. If there is a conflict, it's with your USB and PS/2. It has nothing to do with the mouse.

Try uninstalling the software and just use the mouse. Windows 98 and up already fully support the mouse and don't need the additional software.

Go to the device manager and delete the mouse, then reboot and Windows should find and install it.

If the mouse is using a USB adapter and has a PS2 plug under it (or vice versa), try powering off the computer, removing the USB adapter, plugging it into a PS2 port and booting the computer.

If the mouse is wireless try changing the batteries (in the mouse and the receiver)

I have figured out how to manipulate the mouse with the keypad, but this very slow-going. I would appreciate ANY Help. THANK YOU!

(I will attempt to navigate to another posting and get the HIJACK THIS downloaded so I can post that for you to see---if I am successful I will post that as a follow-up)

Hi yesterday the mouse took a funny turn and stopped moving completely I attached 4 different ones in turn but not one of them worked I tried unpluging and pluging them in whilst the pc was on and also closed the pc down and booted up again still none of them worked one of them was an optical mouse which lit up but wouldnt move.

I found a mouse which had a usb connection and that one works ok.

Can anyone tell me why the mouse port isn't working?

I'am using xp pro AMD Athlon XP 2200+ 1.81 GHz 512 MB

Could be as simple as a fault in the female receiving plug. I had a similar problem and managed to identify it by gently applying pressure twisting the plug back and forth making the mouse work briefly.

Advice was offered the same day.
However you never responded

I fully appreciate there are many reasons why you may not have had chance to respond, but I hope you do not mind me raising the matter with you before I spend time helping on the mouse issue.

I have dug through thread after thread trying to figure out how to get my mouse to work. It's a Rosewill wired USB optical mouse. It was working just fine until one day it just stopped working. I've tried different mouses, and the mouse works fine on different computers. I've tried plugging it in different USB ports. I have tried the fix to delete all the USB root hubs, unplugging, removing the battery, draining the power then restarting. I've tried different fixes with the registry, and trying to update the drivers. But nothing is working. Any suggestion is welcomed at this point. Thank you in advance.

Welcome jjohn609

Have you tried turning off USB (mouse) in the Bios setup. Re-boot, turn it back ON, then Re-Boot again to see if it works ?

Ps/2 mouse not detected at startup. Yes, mouse is plugged in. "Add new hardware" does not find any new mouse. I can add the mouse myself in "Add new hardware", but mouse still not working. Device manager shows mouse with exclamation point icon. I removed the mouse in device mgr and restarted, still no mouse detected. Any suggestions?

Your mouse is not connected to an adapter is it?

Have you tried a different mouse?

Do you have a serial mouse you can try? The PS/2 mouse port may be bad.

I have a Home made desktop and everything was perfect. I need to install a "PCI Video card with HDMI" and my mouse stop working after installation. 
I have to do this because the HDMI of the Motherboard " Gigabyte" stop working.

A:Mouse not working

I would remove the card, re-enable onboard video in the BIOS (if previously disabled).  Restart the system...do you still have mouse problems?

I left for work this morning and my mouse was working fine, I shut off the comp before leaving. When I got home I booted up the computer and the mouse is not being recognized at the windows log on screen. I've swapped another mouse in and the same non responsive mouse occurs. When I go into bios the keyboard is recognized and I can navigate in there. However at the windows log on screen I can't use my keyboard to log on to windows.

So my question is two fold.

1. How do I log on to windows 7 using only a keyboard?

2. What would cause a working mouse to stop being recognized when the computer was off all day? Any help will be appreciated.

Edit: Nevermind about log on using only keyboard. Keyboard is not being recognized by windows 7 either at log on screen. However it is recognized in bios and selecting between safe mode / normal start up.

A:Mouse not working

Just press Space button at the login screen.

I have a USB mouse that is strangly not working in my system, I tried booting into linux and windows PE and it works in both of those, it also works in any other computer I plug it into. The mouse shows up in devmgmt as HID-compliant mouse. Also something strange happens every minute or so after the mouse is plugged in the device disconnected sound plays.

Any suggestions.

A:USB Mouse Not Working

Have you tried it in different USB ports on the system? The problem is more likely the system (somewhere) as the mouse works fine in other machines.

I have Windows XP Home SP2 on an HP Pavilion desktop. My web searching skills are improving, but sometimes I just can't seem to find what I am looking for. My problem: Once or twice a month, after bringing my PC out of standby, the mouse has stopped working. (Logitech MX1000 wireless laser mouse.) I've tried re-installing, updating drivers, etc.; nothing has worked. The only solution I have found is to press the Windows key on the keyboard and navigate my way to a re-boot using the arrow keys. That works, but I am wondering if I could just find a way to shut down and re-start the mouse program only (KEM.exe, I believe), if that would work. If it did, it would surely be much faster than re-booting the entire PC. In fact, I happen to have a Microsoft keyboard with several shortcut keys that I do not use. It would be really neat if it were possible to program a couple of these to stop and start the mouse program. Could even just one key be set up to stop AND restart the mouse program? These are all just thoughts; my first goal is to find out if re-starting the mouse program can be done at all using only the keyboard. Thank you to all who take the time to reply.

A:Working Without A Mouse

One of the things I liked about Windows 3.11 (eek!) was the keyboard commands. Microsoft has wisely kept keyboard commands, and even added a few.

You could try this. I'm not familiar with your mouse so I'm not sure it'll work, but it'll allow you to close the program and then manualy activate it.

Press <CTRL><ALT><DEL> to bring up the Windows Task Manager (or, alternatively, <CRTL><SHIFT><ESC>)

Use the <TAB> and arrow keys to go to the "Processes" tab.

Use the <TAB> and arrow keys to highlight the KEM.exe process.

Press Delete to end the process and then <ENTER> to confirm.

Press <ALT><F4> to close the Task Manager.

Press the <Windows key><E> (the letter "e", that is) to open Windows Explorer.

Use the <TAB> and arrows keys to navigate to the KEM.exe program file (you may want to make a shortcut in an easily accessible location) and press <ENTER> to start it.

Let us know!

First time poster -- I've gotten my share of problems resolved by reading what others have posted, so I thought I would give it a shot.

I'm trying to get an old Dell up and running for my 4 year old niece to use for her games. It boots up fine, but neither the mouse nor the keyboard will work. I have tried multiple mice/keyboards that I have here, but none of them will work. I have read some suggestions to go here or go there, but with my not being able to select a User Account I can't get to Start or anywhere else. Any suggestions??

Thanks for your help.

A:Mouse Not Working

Hi and welcome to BC.

Is this a Laptop or desktop?? If it's a laptop you can always use the touhpad. According on how you described the situation, it seems that you are using a desktop that has no touchpad. Can you tell me what kind of mouse and keyboard you are using?

regards,
Extremeboy
