Update delivers Lenovo Optical Mouse

Q: Update delivers Lenovo Optical Mouse

I do not have a Lenovo -machine or mouse. It is a Logitech usb mouse M325
I knew I did not have anything Lenovo but there it was waiting to be installed.

The choice to upgrade drivers is turned on
Meanwhile my mouse went into poor response while in Adobe Lightroom which prompted me to investigate the logs.
Although it downloaded and installed the CBS.log indicates it didn't install. Searching results in no Lenovo. The name just remains in the list of updates installed.
I downloaded the current Logitech setpoint update 6.7 and the mouse returned to normal.
The questions are
.....Turn off upgrade drivers (and hope it sticks)?
.....how would this update download be refused?
.....If this record is in the list of installed updates will it encourage future inaccurate device info downloads?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

A:Razer delivers DeathAdder mouse for left-handed gamers

Hey, my fellow Lachesis users. I have the 4000 dpi version, 2 actually. If I program one of the side keys to any single key I have a problem. Do you?? I use the front right side key for melee. Try ths. Program any side key to some single key. Then open word or notepad. get the curser ready to type. Press and hold the left mouse button and as your holding it press and release the side key - the let go of the left mouse button. It's a problem for me because while gaming if I am firing a weapon while being rushed I sometimes melee befor letting up on fire. Anyway, 3 of 3 Lachesis mouse I have tried this on are the same. Hold left mouse while press and release side key programed as any single key, then release left mouse and that programed key is acting like it's depressed until you press any of the side keys again. True????

Is that normal. Can I set it up so it does not work that way?? I tried doing a macro but that way the macro won't interupt the fire/left mouse.


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

there is my Lachesis config. I tested it again and found that the programed button remains like it's being depresses until you press any of the other PROGRAMED SIDE buttons. The 2 behind the wheel will not un-stick the programed key and for a side key to un-stick it, it can't be off.

Microsoft is rolling out the first cumulative package of non-security-focused updates and fixes for Windows 10 one week after the company began making available to users the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version of the operating system.

Referred to by some company watchers as "Service Release 1," the actual update package is officially known as KB3081424. (Thanks to The Verge's Tom Warren for a pointer to the KB.)

There's not a lot of information so far about what's in today's update, which Microsoft is delivering via Windows Update. The KB page says the following:"This update includes non-security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer."

I got an optical mouse with a scroll wheel for Christmas last year and the scroll wheel won't work on anything (IE, Compuserve, Netscape).
It has no brand name anywhere on the mouse so I can't look for a new driver. It came from Office Depot and it has no disk/CD. When I plugged it in it did not load anything else and I tried Add/Remove Hardware, but it didn't find anything new. Is there anything else I can do?

This is going to sound really pathetic folks but having had to clean out a load of dust and dirt from my Logitech optical mouse, I now find there is a small sprung object over......
The wheel is back OK and the mouse even works but there is a "thingy" over.. It is about 3/4 inch long with a small hook at each end and a couple of loops in the middle.

When you use the wheel itself, it just doesn't feel that it has the correct tension and therefore I am assuming that the small object should be attached to it in some way.

It did not spring off when I first opened the mouse and in fact I didn't notice it until I was re-assembling. It just sat there in the bottom of the mouse on the right hand side.

Does anyone know of a diagram of the inside of an optical mouse showing where this object should be used? I know it doesn't cost very much to buy a new one but it is a question of honour now finding out where it should be placed. Know what I mean!!

A:Booting up from the optical drive on a Lenovo H430

Hi, On the Lenovo H505s you have to change a few options in the BIOS to install Windows 7 which requires booting from the optical drive. It's probably the same in the H430 Restart the computer at the white Lenovo (BIOS) screen, hit F1 to enter the BIOSGo to Security tabGo to Secure BootDisable Secure BootReset to setup modehit Yes to "Do you really wish to reset platform to setup mode?" Change the boot options to look for USB devices if you are installing from a flash drive, or make the DVD drive the first boot device. (Select SATA dev 1 not the DVD drive or whatever it's called and hit the - key) Go to the EXIT tabDisable OS Optimized DefaultsSave and Exit. That's now I did it on the H505s, not to sure what impact that has on the OEM installation of Win 8, probably destroys it, so be aware you might not be able to go back after. -Cheers

I've tried everything logical!

but I cant get my PS2 Optical Mouse to work on XP.

It's supposed to be compatable, so no drivers or software came with it.

Any ideas?

A:XP & PS2 Optical Mouse

My first idea is that you need to give more information. Like the name brand and model of the optical mouse. Is it wireless ? Is it new ? Did it EVER work ?

If it did, what happened just before it went bad ?

Was there an "old" mouse? Did you uninstall that mouse's drivers ?

Does the optical mouse work on another computer ? Does another mouse work on your (main) computer ?

Does a conflict show in the Device Manager ?
Does the device show up in Device Manager ?

Is it plugged in ?
Is it plugged into the PS2 port, and not the keyboard port?

Does it need batteries and if not are they still good ?

What do you mean by "can't get it to work". Is it completely dead, or do you have partial function?

Does your BIOS have a switch to enable/disable a PS2 mouse and did you make sure it is enabled ?

Does your Motherboard have a jumper to enable/disable a PS2 mouse and is it enabled?

What's the history of your system ? Is it new or used? Have you owned it for a long time or did you just get it ?

My second idea is that you should first let go of the notion that WinXP has anything to do with your malfunctioning optical mouse. Unless you have some red-haired ******* step-child of an optical mouse manufactured by some highly isolated cult located off the Fiji Islands, and imported by Boolong-Bang tribe for distribution in the United States, chances are that your XP and your mouse are just fine, and that the problem is more in the...

A:Optical mouse for laptop

Any mouse you get will consume power. Logic would suggest that a standard mouse would use less power, but I could be wrong.

A wireless/optical may use less power from the laptop because it would have it's own battery.

If you want the battery to last as long as possible use the built in mouse. I find when I travel it's inconvient for me to bring an external mouse anyway. But I have wireless/optical mouse at home and its amazing. And it comes with a dock to recharge the batteries. It's made by Memorex.

Hello, I have a Vostro 1500. I am not sure if this is the computer or the optical mouse, or a conflict between the two! I have a Dell optical mouse (came with old Dell computer system). When I am using the mouse pad on the Vostro laptop, the curser does not jump around, and seems to stay where it is supposed to be. When, the usb mouse is connected, the curser will start where I click, but then if the mouse "line" is not kept right with where the curser is, then the mouse "clicks" on it's own, and many things can happen - text gets selected and deleted, the page will start scrolling, etc. Any ideas as to why this may happen?
As I was typing this post, without the mouse plugged in, I put the "mouse line" up by the "title", and kept typing my post here. The screen as adjusted 4 times - automatic scrolling! And, at one point, the computer went back 3 screens from where I was typing! It is like the "mouse line" went up to the back button (all on it's own), and clicked the back button! I was able to get back to this screen by hitting the right (forward) arrow button. Any ideas? Thank you for all of the help!

The problems are many, for one, while browsing websites, the middle button doesn't work anymore to open links in the background. Two, it seems to double scroll, for example in a text box of 1-10, scrolling should go, 1,2,3 but with this mouse, it goes 1,3,5,7,9. Another problem is, in computer games I play, when I use the middle button scroller (to zoom in and out), it moves the cursor to the bottom right of the screen, and thus causing chaos in the game, scrolling or moving around in circles.

Another problem is, it seems to be a bit jumpy. Not horrible, but at slow mouse moving speed it seems to jump a little bit in a different direction. I prefer using mouse pads (it feels better), is there any mouse pad surface that might improve the tracking of an optical mouse? I mean the design, a plain colour or something really graphically busy.

I wouldn't mind keeping the use of the KBD's multimedia keys, and mapping actions to them. But the priority is solving the "Take over" problem and make this stuff work like a nor... Read more

*Siiggghhhh*
Alright, for 3 months now I have been having this problem. I've tried everything I can think of...Alright, heres whats been happening:

About 3 months ago all of the sudden my mouse just...turned off. I would just casually be browsing the web, or playing games, and my mouse would just start blinking on and off, and about a minute later it would just shut off completely. I didn't click anything or mess with the setting. Then, the whole computer would sieze up. I have to hit Ctrl+alt+delete(God bless you little friend ) and after about 30 seconds the task manager window pops up. I see "Msgsrv32 [Not Responding]"
Well, I end task and my computer starts to work again. Everything but the mouse. It just sits there. Lifeless.

This happens every time I start up my computer. My mouse works for about 10 minutes. 20 minutes If I am lucky. I've tried everything to stop this, but nothing seems to work.
I found a virus on my computer named "do.exe" which I deleted but that didn't solve anything...Somebody...HELP !

A:USB Optical Mouse/MSGSRV32

check for a short in the wires.

Also, did you update the correct driver?

You may also want to turn the option off that automatically shuts down the USB. I am pretty sure it is in the device manager under USB.

Hi everyone.

I'm very new to this board and I need help. I owned a Microsoft Optical mouse [non-wireless], and recently, I'd been experiencing problems with it. At occasional times, my mouse would stop functioning well whenever I'm working on an application, surfing a web, play 3-d games, and such. Whenever my mouse is malfunctioning, the mouse light would turn off for 3 to 6 seconds, then it would turn back on again. I tried checking underneath the mouse to see if any debris or residue stuck on the bottom surface, but it turns out just fine.
Can anyone help me on this bizarre problem??? Is it a hardware problem, software/driver problem, or is it a mixture of both??

And just in case anyone cares, I been using the optical mouse for slightly over six months now, and I just discovered the problem 3 days ago.

thanks,

Chopstick
