MS Intellimouse - Dead?

Q: MS Intellimouse - Dead?

I have a MS Intellimouse 1.2A PS/2 mouse that was returned to me because it did not work. I gave the guy another one, and I just threw this one to the side and thought that he didn't know what he was doing. So, I plugged it in today to see if it worked. Nothing happens. The PC I tested it on was using a generic PS/2 mouse and I turned off the PC and then plugged this one in and then turned it on. It booted fine and then came up with no mouse. I've never heard of a mouse going bad - has anyone else? It's less than a year old. Hardly any wear on it too. I was thinking of opening it up, but I guess I should just send it back and get another one. Can a mouse just decide to die one day? And... the PC that it died on is now using the same exact model and it's working fine. So, it's been tested on two machines and dead on both. Any suggestions? Or did this mouse just have a short life?

I believe I've read somewhere that ME and that mouse are unhappy, depending on which model you have.

Mouse is 5-6 years old: "erratic movements"

This USB mouse runs off a 4-port BUS-powered USB Hub. Within the last week or so, the mouse jumps around erratically. I've tried it attached directly to my Sony notebook's USB with the same effect, so it does not seem to be the problem--though I am considering getting a hub with external power.

Any idea? I've got a new Logitech G3 ordered, so I can say goodbye to it if I have to...

Ok I have a Intellimouse w/intellieye 1.0 that is ps/2 and usb compatible. Now, the download section at microsoft.com just has one for Intellimouse. Nothing else. It says 'Download Intellimouse Software Version 4.1' Or something. If I download and install this, will there be a way, without the original disk that came with the mouse itself, to restore the original mouse drivers? I guess what I'm asking is would there be any adverse effects to any games or programs?

I have a major problem with my Intellimouse. When the computer is on, the mouse will work normally SOMETIMES, but most of the time it just jumps around and clicks on everything that's on screen!
I went to Microsoft.com, and I couldn't get through to them. Some help they were. The mouse causes the computer to freeze up sometimes, and that never happens on my computer. I don't know what to do. I've been getting so mad over this I was thinking I would just buy another mouse. Anyways, here's the written stuff on the bottom of the mouse:

I'm using a microsoft intellimouse wireless explorer and it's driving me crazy. Everytime I pause to so something (like type this for example) the sensor light turns off and when I go to use it again it's dead. I think that's it's to save battery power but it's ridiculous because I have to lift it up, or wave it around to get it going again. It's really been frustrating but I don't want to give up on it yet b/c it was pricey. I'm connected by USB and I've followed all the normal troubleshooting ideas, my PC is clean too, so I'm wondering if anyone else has tried this mouse and what they've dealt with. Thanks.

Thanks in advance for any help! My logitech corded laser mouse has bad contact points, so I got a corded Microsoft Intellimouse to replace it. The problem is that when I try to install the drivers, it fully removes the logitech mouse, leaving me without a mouse at all. If I don't let it remove the logitech mouse, it won't install the drivers-catch 22. After that, it would not let me reinstall any mouse at all and I had to use system restore. The very first screen on the microsoft drivers is the agreement and I cannot mark that I agree if I don't have a mouse. If I could find a way to mark that, I'm sure I could use arrows, tabs and enter to complete setup, but tab just defaults to cancel setup and enter does not work because it won't fully highlight. The intellimouse isn't found by the computer after turning off and plugging it in either-tried that. I thought that, since my operating system (XP) is made by microsoft, the drivers might already be in there. No such luck. The instructions say the drivers must be installed first and I would like to do that, but I am stopped every time. I have tried reinstalling my dinosaur roller ball mouse that came with my system and it won't do that either.

The mouse will randomnly turn off and on (the laser) and eventually shuts off indefinetly untill i unplug and then plug it back in agian. It happens usually when I am playing a pc game but it has happened while just browsing the internet before.

I thought it maybe be a bad cord connection type problem, but when it goes out for good i shake the thing like crazy and play with the cord on both ends and nothing happens, yet unplugging and plugging it back in will always get it working again ( for about 15 minutes )

Now my mb had a bunch of usb patches for xp and usb 2 and i uninstalled and reinstalled these and nothing changed. I dont think this is driver related becuase my keyboard is also usb and it has not gone out on me yet.

Broken part maybe? I hope not.. I havent even had the mouse for a year yet and it IS a very nice mouse indeed. I really dont wanna buy a new one only to find out I needed some other driver or the bad part is the mb plug in.

A friend gave me a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer yesterday, so I plugged it into my systems USB port, the light came on (see pic) but I can't move the cursor I can click, and use the wheel but that's it.
I've tried all sorts of things, at the moment I have my old mouse (cordless, PS/2) & the USB Intellimouse both plugged in, the cordless works fine, but as I said I can click with the other.
some of the things I have tried:
-Deleting the cordless mouse, and starting the system up with only the Intellimouse
-Deleting the USB and letting it re-detect that and the mouse
-Just starting the system with the Intellimouse without deleting anything

The Intellimouse shows up in the mouse section of the control panel (I'm running XP Home Ed.)
but I simply can't move the cursor. I actually thought that the mouse was ment to have 2 lights under it but I'm not sure. my guess is that the camera in the mouse is dead, my friend didn't know if it worked or not, but I just want to make sure before I dispose of it.
Could it be worth trying it using a USB to PS/2 coverter?

With the picture that should appear with this post I have put a red box around where it lights up.

Hey all,

Long time listener, first time caller!

I apologize if this is in the wrong subsection.

I swapped out mice from a Logitech USB optical to a MS Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 (favorite mouse of all time).

The mouse freezes after the pc has been asleep for a while. Disconnecting then reconnecting the mouse via usb resets it and it works; however its quite frustrating to have to do this every time. My suspicion is a faulty driver, but I've tried to reinstall the drivers to no avail. I've also tried disabling hybrid sleep and usb suspend without success.

The logitech worked without any issues.

Thanks in advance and happy holidays!

I spent $50 on a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer because I wanted to go optical, and I wanted lots of buttons for gaming. After working fine for a good 6 months, about 2 months ago I started noticing my mouse would just stop responding. Even during a game. The red light on the mouse would even go out indicating a loss of power. After returning to Windows the problem would often fix itself. I would see a little USB icon with a comment that the device was having a problem. But I couldn't click on it, so I would have to start opening up the Control Panel. Before I could ever get the Device Manager open to look at this, the problem would fix itself. This is a USB mouse, so I tried a different USB port, but the problem persisted. Driver uninstall/reinstall... didn't work either.

I had just installed Windows on a fresh partition in this machine, so I didn't think it was a driver problem. The only driver EVER installed on this WindowsXP install was the most current version. I was starting to think there was just some USB problem on this motherboard.

In any case, I switched to my old PS2 mouse and focused on another project. Building a brand new machine. When I was done with the new machine, I plugged in the MS Mouse. It worked great, so I figured it must have been the other computer.

The other night, it started happening on my brand new computer. So, I looked on Microsoft's website to figure out how I could send this crappy thing to them for repair or replace... Read more

I was given a USB intellimouse explorer, that didn't seem to work properly and now doesn't work at all. The problem that I have is that the red LED that lights up the camera piece doesn't work any more. if I replace the LED do you think I would have to replace it with one of the same colour?, or just use any colour?
the only thing that I can think of that I can do is to take the one from the back of the mouse that works without a problem and then put it where the other one is.
Any suggestions are welcome, as my cordless mouse is really annoying me!

Then I can load my scanner and printer, all is fine until I pulg the mouse in again. When I reboot I get all kinds of errors and one that says the registry has problem which windows will correct and reboots.

I bought a new wireless mouse 2.0 keyboard combo thinking I could customize the tilt wheel to do the job of the back/forward buttons you find on the sides of some mice. But you can't. the tilt switch can only be assigned one function and that's horizontal scrolling. Does anyone know of any way to hack this so I can assign custom functions to the tilt?

..........

I've scoured the web in search of a solution but with no luck. This is surprising considering the back/forward mouse shortcuts are the most used shortcuts in a browser. Amazingly there doesnt seem to be a single utility designed for customizing mouse wheels or tilt switches. The closest I got was an extension for Firefox turning the tilt into back/forward, but it's so bug ridden it's unusable.

Have the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer for Bluetooth (5 button). I believe it is Bluetooth 2.0. The computer has built-in Bluetooth (3.0?). It is a new HP Envy DV7 (latest model as of 11/14/12).

Computer sees and connected to mouse. Mouse cursor moves and such. I downloaded the Microsoft software for this mouse. I've attempted to assign special key commands for the buttons (such as Ctrl + Z for edit undo).

I put the mouse on our Windows 7 laptop w/ the Bluetooth module that comes with the mouse, everything works. I tried connecting the module (looks like thumb drive) to the Windows 8 laptop w/ built-in Bluetooth, and when viewing "Devices", it shows the module, but says "driver error" below it. Figure it is due to it being the previous Bluetooth 2.0. So I uninstall both the mouse and module, reinstall just the mouse, no luck.

Hi

I have started using an MS intellimouse optical. It has started some strange behaviour with my laptop.

If I am using excel, a single mouse click highlights a selection of cells, which cannot be deselected afterwards. Once this happens any keystrokes are treated as keyboard shortcuts, so for instance if I try typing into a cell it starts hiding columns and closing toolbars.

Outlook also has a problem where a single click highlghts everything in a pane. With both problems, minimized applications cannot be restored.

I have to stress that I have not reassigned mouse buttons or clicks, and have checked each time I have the problem. The buttons are as normal.

I have also installed the drivers and refreshed etc etc.

Is this an incompatibility or another clever microsoft 'feature'.
 

A:Strange behaviour after adding intellimouse

Is it an USB mouse or ps2 and does your laptop have a trackpad. Maybe there is some conflict there. If its has a ps2 and USB connector try using each and see if there is a difference.

Have you used the latest drivers from the MS website, I found they were newer than the disk mine came with.

I am using a Dell Dimension E510 that I upgraded to 3 Gb of memory and then upgraded from XP Media Center to Vista Home Premium. I'm having a problem with my wireless mouse. I purchased and used (without a problem on XP) a Microsoft Elite Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Since I upgraded to Vista, I have been having problems with the mouse. When I opened an internet page, the second I moved the cursor out of the toolbar and into the page, the page would begin jumping and flickering up and down. Twice now I've deleted the mouse & keyboard problem and re-installed them, and they seem to work for a while. I finally figured out yesterday that this occurred after I ran that IOBIT Windows Cleaner free program so I deleted that program, deleted the Microsoft bluetooth program and then re-installed the Intellitype and Intellimouse programs (6.1) and everything seemed to be working well. This morning, I can't get the mouse to work at all. The system reads the keyboard OK (I'm typing on it right now) and it tells me that the mouse batteries are good so I believe that it sees the mouse, but the cursor will not move with the mouse. Can anyone help me with this?

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.

So, I just got my new computer today, and for the past four hours or so, I've been troubleshooting it. I noticed my CPU was idling at 50%. Obviously, this seemed strange, so I booted her up into safe mode and it idles normally, much to my dismay since now I have to go hunting through various services to figure out what the deal is.

I reboot the computer again and start disabling services until I narrow the problem down to PnP. I turn Plug n Play off, reboot, no more problem. But, of course, now I don't have any PnP. This is a problem for me as one would expect, so I turn the service back on and start unplugging things from the back of my computer. As soon as I unplugged the IntelliMouse, it worked perfectly again. This seemed odd as I've never heard of a mouse of all things causing this sort of trouble, so I plug a different mouse in and the computer works perfectly.

So I've pretty much come to the conclusion that my IntelliMouse would be the problem. However, it's a good mouse, and I don't want to put it away if I can avoid doing such. Anybody ever run into a problem similar to this and know any kind of way of fixing things without having to replace the mouse? I have an Asus A8N-LA motherboard with a Athlon 64 X2 +4200, and I'm running Windows XP media center.

My optical mouse recently died and I couldn't find one like it with the 2 extra buttons on the left and right. I use these extensively when browzing on the web or folders in explorer. So I bought a new wireless mouse 2.0 thinking I could customize the tilt wheel to do the same thing. But you can't. the tilt switch can only be assigned one function and that's horizontal scrolling. Does anyone know of any way to hack this so I can assign custom functions to the tilt? Thanks.
 

A:customizing intellimouse tilt wheel

I've scoured the web in search of a solution but with no luck. This is surprising considering the back/forward mouse shortcuts are the most used shortcuts in a browser. Amazingly there doesnt seem to be a single utility designed for customizing mouse wheels or tilt switches. The closest I got was an extension for Firefox turning the tilt into back/forward, but it's so bug ridden it's unusable.

I purchased my Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 about 2 years ago and had no problems with it working. But, about 1 year ago, I reformatted my hard drive. Now, when I go to change my mouse pointer from the usual white arrow to a 3D Bronze arrow or some other pointer option, it states that the particular pointer option is missing or corrupt! So, I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it from the Microsoft web site. But, it still is acting the same way!?! Does anyone have a sollution to my problem? I would appreciate it! Thanks.

Can anyone explain to me how to program custom keystrokes into the buttons on this beast? I'm using driver version 5.0. The User Manual is absolutely useless. It says it can be done but offers no details on how to do it. The alternatives included in the pulldown menu for each button are very limited and there is no explanation on how to customize with keystrokes that aren't in the list. I'm not trying to do anything fancy, just ESC, F3 and F8.

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.
