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

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

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,

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

Hi there,

As described I my middle click function has stopped working on my mouse, at first I assumed it was a Chrome update and that I could no longer use it to "Open link in new tab" however it seems that it now does absolutely nothing and I am unable to reassign it. I used CAD software (Solidworks) that requires the middle mouse button for me to be able to pivot my view about the pointer on the screen (also a few PC games I play would be much smoother if I could do this).

I have all the latest drivers and firmware installed.

I did find this thread that I thought might help me; Middle Mouse Button , however the screen shot at the bottom shows the Mouse Options on the Control Panel having a lot more option than it does for me, the only options I have are switching the left and right mouse buttons, double-click speed adjustment and ClickLock.

The buttons assignment window that I get using the Razer software gives no more options other than to assign the forwards and backwards buttons ("Windows Button 4" and "Windows Button 5").


Thank you for any help you can give.

A:Middle Click Mouse Function Stopped Working (Razer Deathadder)

I had that problem when I installed "software" for my mouse. I just use the default drivers that Windows installs upon connecting.

Have you recently installed any new software for your mouse or somehow relates to your mouse?

Hey folks, The middle button for trackpoint doesn't work. All drivers are up to date. Middle button is enabled for scrolling, not clicking. Middle button works when switched over for clicking. It just randomly stopped working last week, but it works when I switch it over to clicking in the settings tool. Any ideas? Thanks

Hey there. Recently I reinstalled the Sims 2 and many expansion packs on my computer. I have HP Pavilion Entertainment PC with Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit operating system. I connected the mouse I had bought and realized it wasn't working. The middle mouse button works fine outside of the sims 2 games. But when I get to the neighborhood and even the houses, I can't use it at all. It's like it just shuts off. The rest of the mouse works perfectly fine. I've read some things about Logitech mouses doing this but mine is an HP Compfort mouse so I can't do what they say to fix it. I've tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions? If I've left anything out I'll answer your questions.

I got a Microsoft Mouse 100 a couple of years back (2-3) and I have the habit of using middle click to close tabs, open links in new tabs, open multiple Explorer windows from the taskbar and so on.

Last night it all worked fine, I turned off my computer and today I turn it on again and I notice it's not working anymore. I haven't fiddled with any settings at all, it just stops working out of the blue. I tested the mouse on another computer and the middle click doesn't work there, but the mouse on the other computer uses the green connector and my PC doesn't have that and I've lost my green-to-USB thing so I can't test it to see if it's a problem on my PC or just the Microsoft Mouse 100's middle click is just broken and won't work again.

But at this point I'm assuming that it is, although it seems strange to stop working after I shut down and turn back on again (I tried rebooting, connecting to different USB ports, still no luck).

But then again everything else works fine - left click, right click, scroll up/down... That other computer had a similar problem, but the mouse there's middle click started working on its own, so I'm really puzzled what is it.

Hi, i returned a Dell Studio 16 for another Dell Studio 16 with some lighter configurations. One thing I didn't expect to go missing was the ability to "middle click" and open firefox links in new tabs by pressing both mouse buttons simultaneously.

When i went to Dell's website to update the driver, i was informed via a pop-up that the driver i already have was newer than the one i was trying to update with. so i didnt "update" the driver. The device says "Synaptics TouchPad V7.2 on PS/2 Port" and the Driver Version is 14.0.3.0. I am running Win7 64bit. Thanks.

Hi Guys,
When I am working with Word docs, I occasionally get the error message 'Word has stopped working@ and then get error message 'Microsoft Office Word is trying to recover your information' which is then followed by 'Word cannot open the file ~WRS(25A9155-508F-4C19-8D8A-A2DFAF672C8C).If the file is stored on your computer there may be a problem with your hardware.If the file is stored on the network there may be a problem with the network connection. If you can copy the file, try saving the file inanother location and opening it there.'
I have searched for this file and cannot locate it....do you think uninstalling Microsoft Office 2007 will rectify the problem ? I have deleted all the word docs I have and the error message still comes up. Once I have closed the box down, Word restarts and comes up with a new blank doc.

To get to start use the Windows key that is between the Control key and the ALT key on the left hand side of your keyboard. It should have a little window floating on it. Just hit it once and your Start menu should pop up, then use arrow keys and enter to navigate it.

I bought a new computer and am setting up the old one to give away. I formatted the hard drive on the old one and after win 98 was installed the mouse didn't work. This old computer doesn't have a ps2 port so it uses a ps2 to serial adapter. I thought the adapter was bad as the mouse worked when plugged into the ps2 port of another computer. A new adapter didn't work. I unplugged and replugged the cable connector on the motherboard with no success. I installed a pci serial card that was recognized in win 98 device manager with com ports 1 and 2. This was after disabling the onboard serial ports in the bios. The mouse still doesn't work. I've run out of ideas other than taking it to the computer repair shop. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Larry.

Is the adapter you are using the one that came with the mouse? The pinouts are not all the same on the adapters. I know my IBM mouse must use its own adapter.

I have two computers set up, and recently the mouse stopped working on one of them.

I checked the connection and rebooted. The mouse didn't work after the second reboot, but it did after the third. I havn't restarted it again.

Now the mouse stopped working on my second PC. I have rebooted and so far it is working.

The mouse on the first PC is an old one with the circular plug. But the second computer has a usb optical mouse.

I find it too much of a coincidence that the mouse should stop on both computers within a day of each other.

I have checked my pc with an up to date virus scanner, and it was clean.

Has anybody heard of a virus that can do this? Or anything else that could cause this?

Thanks.

ps. Hopefully my mouse will be working, so I can check replys.

Everything was working fine until I accidentally unplugged my PS/2 mouse while the computer was running. Now everytime I startup I get the message that Windows cannot detect my mouse and to plug in a serial mouse instead, which I did, using the same mouse with the PS/2 to serial adapter that came with it and Windows installs the standard mouse drivers for it. This works fine except that my mouse has a lot of programmable buttons and hence requires the software drivers that came with it. When I install those drivers and restart, the mouse freezes in the centre of the screen and won't work. When I uninstall those drivers and just run on the basic mouse drivers it works okay. Problem is, now I can't use the programmable buttons on the mouse as it was meant for. Can now only use it as a standard serial mouse. How can I get my mouse to work like it did before the problem occurred? And is this a hardware problem or a matter of conflicting IRQs? Because I've noticed that IRQ 12 is now being shared by the sound card and the PCI steering. Isn't IRQ 12 supposed to be assigned only to the PS/2 port? If this is an IRQ conflict, how can I resolve it? I'm running Win98SE on a P2. Can someone please help me out?
 

A:Mouse stopped working

I could be wrong, but it sounds like you have blown the PS/2 port on your machine. This is one problem with PS/2 and should never be plugged or unplugged when the machine is running. Unless anyone knows different the only thing is to get a serial mouse with the functions of the PS/2 mouse. (Unless drivers are available for a serial port version of the PS/2 mouse you have).

A:My mouse has stopped working! UGH

Does your keyboard work? Do you have access to a PS/2 mouse? Be sure you are plugging in the USB cable to the Back USB port as this port is stronger. Log in with the keyboard and see if it installs the Mouse Driver once Windows loads
You can also boot into Safe Mode and see if the mouse works. If not using your TAB, Alt, Arrow and Enter keys, go to Windows key + R in the Run box type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager Do you have a yellow flag next to the Mouse? If so, using your arrow and enter keys, highlight the mouse and press the Delete key to delete the mouse and restart the computer. It should load a new driver for the mouse.

Hi whiskeryron and welcome to W7 Forums

Could be a hardware failure of the mouse, where it still works (as in being able to guide the cursor on the screen) but not as regards recognising the operation of one or more of its buttons or wheel.

Probably easier to replace than try to repair.

I have a four year old Compaq CQ2103WM computer with a 139GB Hard Drive and 1GB Memory. I have been having problems with the mouse not working or freezing for some time now. Now the mouse doesn’t work at all. I tried changing batteries, using different USB ports both on the computer itself and a new USB hub, changed the mouse several times, including 3 new ones. They worked fine on my other computer but not on the Compaq. When I plug in a mouse (including the original mouse) I get a Found New Hardware message and the New Hardware Wizard opens and asks for an installation CD. Then I get a message that the new hardware was not installed properly and may not work. Since the pointer no longer moves I can’t do anything. And the message stays onscreen until I turn off the computer. I started having trouble with the mouse after removing a Rootkit in November 2012. The mouse would stall or freeze and then start working again, sometimes after rebooting or turning off the computer. The Devise Manager says the mouse is fine and found no problems with it. I can’t get the pointer to move at all now. Does anyone know how to get my mouse working again? Thanks for any help offered.

What type of mouse is this?
 
I would go into Device Manager...uninstall the drivers for each mouse listed...reboot.
 
If the mouse requires use of a drivers CD...insert that and reinstall the mouse.

Hi all

Haven't been on here for ages as I have had a good 6 months of trouble free computing. Anyway to fill you all in I have now got an x-box chipped and connected to my PC via a crossover cable and NIC. I access it thru FlashFXP. The x-box uses a new dashboard that I have installed called Evox. Right then:

After things going smoothly with chipping and installation of various programs I downloaded a menu editor for Evox.

After trying to connect to my menu file on my x-box several times it wouldn't work. Then just as I shut down my connection to the x-box the menu file appeared and my PC locked up.

From that moment on my mouse only works for about half a second every 10 seconds and as you can imagine I am having to use the keyboard to access everything which is ****e!

I have Win XP Pro and have restored the system to a earlier date, removed the evox menu editor program, full system scan with Norton 2002, removed and reinstalled mouse drivers and run scandisk all to no avail!

HELP!!! Has anyone else experienced this problem what has happened!

Never seen it but try this. Do your best to get to Device Manager (probably under System Properties) and check your mouse under there. If it has the exclamation point, delete it and reboot. Reinstall the drivers when prompted.

I've had this problem on and off now for the past 4-5 month's, and the main problem is when researching what the problem is, I have had no luck and what i seem to have is rare? My mouse (when working) is never 100% but does what I need, and is always a little stiff and it will work for a good 1-2 month's and then slowly it will start to stiffen even more, making it very hard to move and then bang and is completely stuck! this takes all takes place in about 20 minutes when i know its going to happen and there is no preventing it. the strangest part of it all is that when it is stuck, if i leave the mouse alone for a couple of minutes it will be fine and can move it a couple cm's before its stuck again. it took me 15 minutes to get to this website and had to keep leaving it and then moving it and so on.. so i really hope someone replies!! thanks!

p.s. both my USB and wire mouse dont work, I've checked the drivers and it says its up to date.

On a Windows 98 system, the mouse froze and stoped working after the installation of a second cd-rom drive, LCD monitor and ethernet card. On rebooting, the error message: no PS/2 mouse detected displays. When the LCD monior was uninstalled and replaced with the old, original monitor, the mouse worked for about 10 hours then stopped again.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi all,

I had my mouse connected to the usb-port of my monitor.
I accidently pulled the cable connecting my pc to the screen (the one supplying power to the usb ports)
Now my mouse stopped working. changing to another usb port doesnt help. Even changing to my laptop doesnt work.

Can my mouse be damaged just from removing that cable?

It probably shorted something out and damages the ports. If you are worried about the cable not being long enough to plug into the tower, consider either a wireless mouse or a USB extension cable

Ok, so my computer was making some weird noises and I moved around the cables so it stopped the knocking noise. When I did it, I accidentally pulled the power cable out of the CD drive and it turned off my computer. So after I plugged that back in, I turned on my computer again and got into Windows and my keyboard still works. The lights in my mouse are lit up but it's not working when I try and move it.

Is your mouse/keyboard USB or PS/2?

If it's USB, try using the PS/2 slot, most keyboard and mice come with an included adapter (USB > PS/2). You may have to re-install drivers.cab.

My MS Word thesaurus function has stopped working. Actually, it is the only "Research" tool I use in Word. All the research tools seem to have stopped working. Spelling & grammar checking work fine, however.I'm running XP SP3 w/ MS Office 2007.I usually launch the thesaurus by using the shift-F7 command. However, no matter what the word, the answer I get is "No results found. Please search again."I have tried other suggestions including:**Go to control panel > Add or remove programs > select Microsoft Office 2007 > Change > Add or remove features, then click continue > click on Office Shared features > Proofing tools > English proofing tools > Remove all the cross marks shown in RED > Continue > wait until the configuration process completes then restart your system**I ran diagnostics for Office, but I got a message that "The drive is not ready for use; its door may be open. Please check drive (a then a long string of gibberish) and make sure that a disk is inserted and that the drive door is closed." I check my CD drive and found it was closed and no disc was in it. I tried again several times but each time got a similar message. I then hit continue and the diagnostics ran. I did see that it found no problems with my hard drive. Again, I can't i.d. the drive this message is eluding to as all it is is gibberish, mostly questions marks.I just finished a long process with another bleeping computer member wh... Read more

A:MS Word Thesaurus stopped working

I would either...uninstall/reinstall Office...and then update it for pertinent SPs...or just try updating it for pertinent SPs.

IME, a problem with a particular program is most likely to be solved by uninstalling/reinstalling.

My experience of getting a new laptop up and running continues to be beset by problems. Now Microsoft Word stops working on launch. It's Office 2013 running on Windows 7. Any idea how to resolve this issue? Thanks.
 
Update:
 
A google search revealed that I should uninstall Abbyy Finereader. I uninstalled and Word seems to be working. What is Abbyy Finereader? Do I need it?
 
Thanks.

Good luck.

A:Microsoft Word has stopped working

Since you've given no info about the installation, I'm going to guess this was a trial version on a new computer? It only works for a specified number of documents and then you must purchase a license key to keep it going.

I used this mouse for a few years, and I was pleased with it. It worked everywhere - linux, windows, android.Now, suddenly, it stopped working properly - I can pair mouse without problems, buttons and roll wheel works too, but mouse doesn't move with cursor. I'm using linux on HP Envy x360.It occurs all of a sudden, the mouse worked all the time, and now - it doesn't.When I paired mouse with my android smartphone, it was the same - buttons worked, wheel too, but cursor doesn't. It is very annoying for me, because I simply need the mouse, and this one was not cheap. PS: I ran hcidump, that's a tool on linux, it shows all data that my notebook receive from bluetooth devices. It showed something when I pressed buttons and rolled wheel, but nothing when I moved the mouse.HP Product number of the mouse : H3T50AA7 Thanks for reply,R. Bene?

Hello! I have a Wacom Cintiq Companion that I've been using with the Wacom BT keyboard and a MS Arc Touch Surface edition (BT), for about 6-7 months. I've run into a problem after turning the machine on yesterday where it wouldn't let me connect both of them at the same time; if I connected one, the other would give me an error to connect.

Both still work, though I've now run into a problem where the computer refuses to even see the mouse when I'm trying to pair it; I'm worried that it's still in the system somewhere and it's making it bug out. (Even though it's not listed in the Device Manager!) The last time I had a problem like this with the tablet I ended up having to reinstall windows 8, which I'm not looking forward to doing again Any ideas?

Thanks!!

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.  I assume that you mean your touch pad is not working since a USB mouse does work?   If so, try doing a reset to see if it will fix any configuration issues.  To do, just do this.....
1. Shut down Windows and unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If that didn't resolve the issue then I would try re-installing the touch pad drivers.  I am not sure which version of Windows you have installed, but here are the links to the touch pad driver

Hello, fellow HP-ers! Hoping someone's expertise can assist me. I decided to clean out my fan by opening up my laptop keyboard. Unfortunately, I must've snagged a power strip or something because suddenly, the mouse stopped working. Does anyone know which power strip is for the mouse? Or if there's something to resecure in there? I've provided a photo for reference. Thanks in advance for the help!  - Mr. Horrible DIY-er

Hi all, this is my first time posting on this board and itís probably a total newbie question but here goes; I wanted to add a second hard drive to my pc but there wasnít an available SATA connection on my motherboard so I purchased a pci-e card that allowed me to add another pair of sata connections, I installed the card powered on and added the drivers and then everything was fine. Now I powered my computer back on and the usb mouse and keyboard doesnít work at all, not sure what is happening, does anybody have any ideas why this would happen? The only other thing plugged into a usb that is working is a wifi stick.

What are the specs of your current system? Do you have a very high video card but low Power supply wattage?

I agree that the keyboard and mouse only use a very low watt consumption on your PSU. But if you have maxed out your PSU due to the high specs you are using, then definitely the external USB devices will not work as they are just a second priority for the power consumption.

If you have a low spec system then obviously, this is a compatibility issue with your mouse and keyboard. Let me know your thoughts.

I have an Inspiron 6000, and the USB ports have stopped detecting my USB mouse. The USB ports will detect my USB key or external harddrive... so I'm guessing the automatic drivers that were installed for the mouse have curropted or something.

I have a Dynex small laptop mouse, and I honestly have went through 5 of these because of the same problem. At first I thought it was the crummy mouse dying on me. But I never took the tiem to pay attnetino and notice the light on the optical is still on when plugged in.

This time though, I recently got some "USB port failure" messages that minimzed into the system tray but I could never open it up again or recreate the message.

Is there a way to check/update the drivers that were installed for this mouse by Win XP?
 

A:USB port stopped working for the mouse only!

try another port or buy a decent mouse.

unless it's some off the wall, cheapy usb mouse, it should work fine in xp.
