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!!

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...

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.

I will be using the mouse when the pointer dissappears and shows up over the start menu at the bottom of the screen. I had better performance with the wireless mouse I had before. I thought these were supposed to better and smoother. Is this a common issue or did I make a bad choice with the M$ brand mouse, or did I get a lemon. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Either a problem with the port where you connect your mouse or the USB drivers.
Try another port if you have not already done so and reboot.
Unplug all other USB devices and reboot to see if there is interference.
If not that, connect a PS/2 mouse if you have one and reboot. Go to Control Panel > System > Device manager > Hard ware and remove all the USB devices listed. You can do this without a mouse using the tab key to shift across items and spacebar to select.
Reboot and windows will put back the USB drivers.
Let us know?

A:Optical Mouse Problem

Without a picture, I can't tell, but does the mouse plug in with a USB or a PS2? If it was a USB, the download may not have taken place properly, since the mouse was probably still plugged into the computer at the time (USB devices want the software added BEFORE the device is plugged in). You might want to backdate your machine then try reinstalling the drivers without the mouse plugged in (you'll have to use the TAB key on your keyboard to do this - ugly but true).

2 days ago my XP SP3 notebook decided it didn't like USB mice. I've tried several standard USB optical mice (2 button + wheel) to no avail. These mice work fine on other notebooks/desktops.

When I plug a mouse in, it detects the new hardware, and sees it as "USB PS/2 Optical Mouse." XP searches and can't find any compatible drivers. It used to work fine with the standard "HID compliant" mouse driver. Now, nothing.

I've tried all the drivers I can find, I've even re installed the original drivers.cab file from the XP Pro install cd....nothing.

I found this thread: Optical USB Mouse turning on and off, but I haven't been able to use the same solution because I can't figure out what IntelliPoint is and how to install it. I also don't see the mentioned update when I go into Windows Update. I tried deleting the drivers, restarting and plugging in the mouse; it seemed to help but within a few minutes it was back to the same situation. And all this is complicated because I'm not using an English version of Vista. Any ideas?

    A:Optical mouse turns on and off

    Welcome
    This is what to try
    Using the mouse on another computer to determine if the mouse needs to be replaced
    Go to search by start button type device manager and update the mouse driver
    Try another mouse and see if that works.

    I have a wired optical mouse that i want to use with my laptop. Problem is that and error pops up when ever it detects it. The error is this:

    There was a problem installing this hardware: Optical USB Mouse An error occurred during the installation of this device; Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

    Can any one tell me where i might find a generic driver for a 3 button mouse? The mouse is made by Dell(as far as i can tell). If any one could help me out that would be really awesome, thanks!

    I'm sure there is one. I use it on my desk but sometimes it's a little flaky even if the battery is fresh

    I have an optical mouse on a Dell 8400 running x/p pro. The last two weeks my mouse keeps freezing for no apparent reason. I keep hearing my machine make the tone that it uses for a usb device to be plugged and unplugged through out the day for no reason, and the usb mouse just either responds erratically or freezes altogether. I then need to unplug and replug it to make it function again. I have already tried virus scans, with no result, updated the bios, and received a usb driver hotfix from microsoft, but non of these have remedied the issue. This is a new issue on a 2 year old machine so I can only deduce there is some type of virus or worm running that I can't locate. hope you can help...Gianni

    P.S. I have already tried the mouse on another machine it functions correctly, and it is clean, with no optical issues.
