Problems with Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0.

Q: Problems with Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0.

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.

I have a MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer, and I'm running Windows XP. Does anyone else have this mouse or has used it? It doesn't seem as precise as the corded version of the mouse. The movement is slightly jerky. I expected better from a $70 mouse. Is this normal?
 

A:MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer

I just read a review of this mouse, and it has a documented slow response time. It's a trade off I guess, but not one I'm willing to make. I'm taking it back. The difference between the wireless one and it's wired counterpart is significant.

I have been trying to remove my Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer from my computer. I thought this would be easy but has turned out to be impossible. I removed the receiver to the mouse from my usb port and rebooted. Trouble I'm having is I can't reboot. When the computer starts up all I get is my graphic card info and that's it. I have to plug the receiver in before the startup sequence will continue. Intellipoint software installed, not installed, no difference. Any suggestions?

put this in microsoft tech companion for windows 8, even though it is an issue in windows 10.  If there is a better forum, please direct me.

I have suddenly lost the magnify function of the second button on the side of my mouse.

Mouse - Microsoft intellimouse explorer 2.0 also model 1007

Windows 10 64 bit

The mouse has a right and left button and a wheel. These work as they always have - left for click, right for options, wheel for scroll, both up and down and right and left. There are two thumb buttons on the left side. The one to the rear is the back button,
and works just like it always has. The button in front of it, until a bit ago (month, maybe?) would toggle the magnify screen option on and off. All of the sudden, this toggle function just stopped.

I looked in the mouse settings, and can't find anything that recognizes the second thumb button so I could add a "what do you want this button to do" to it. There is plenty in the ease of use area that explains the magnify function, but I can't see
any way to assign these to the mouse. The mouse control panel lets you set the left and right finger buttons and the wheel, but not the back thumb button or the other thumb button.

I looked at microsoft's site, thinking there might be a missing driver, but the only options I see are for windows 7 and before, and when I try to use these, I get a message about how the download is lower than the current driver, and the new stuff won't install.

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.

New computer a month ago running 64-bit Win7 Home Premium. Plugged in my existing Microsoft wireless combo (Wireless Natural Multimedia Keyboard, Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0) which both go through the same USB receiver connected to the computer, and all worked well. Installed latest drivers for both from the Microsoft site, and I'm happy.

Then after a couple of weeks, I wake up the computer from sleeping one morning and the mouse no longer works. Batteries were new, but I tried new ones anyway, but no good. It simply doesn't seem to connect to the USB receiver. The wireless keyboard still works. A wired USB mouse works. But not the wireless mouse, even after re-installing the latest drivers and numerous restarts of the computer.

POTENTIAL CLUE: Numerous times I've tried to force the mouse and receiver to re-connect by clicking the sync buttons on both. No good. But here's the thing... when I click the receiver sync button and the lights start flashing as it tries to find a device, AS SOON as I click the sync button on the mouse, the receiver's lights stop flashing.

In other words, the mouse and receiver seem to be able to talk to each other, but they aren't connecting.

ANSWERS TO OBVIOUS QUESTIONS: Yes, the mouse/keyboard combo still works on my old computer. And yes, the mouse and the receiver are close (16 inches).

Ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance.

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

Hello again guys,
Long time no post, blah blah Anyways, I've been noticing strange activity on my computer. The Start > Search isn't working, for filename I use *.exe, Lookin C:, Search Options All Files and folders, search system folders, hidden files and folders, and subfolders. I hit Search, the button depresses and greys out like it's searching, but in about 2 seconds, it pops back up and still says "o start your search, follow the instructions in the left pane" it says that in the right pane.

Ive tried doing *.exe, *.txt, etc, no results, which it SHOULD give something but aint.
Issue 2: my IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0A USB mouse has been acting weird, when I do a "single" left click, it will trigger as a double click for some reason......and it's REALLY annoying...lol, like, if I got 2 IE windows open for example, and close the top 1 using the X, it has a chance of somehow triggering the single left click as a DOUBLE left click and closes both windows. Or, like when selecting the first file in a group (to group them together with CTRL or SHIFT) when I left click it, it will trigger it as a double click and execute instead of highlighting it. It's really messed up.

attached is both my startuplist and the HJT logs.
Thanks in advance!
 

A:Strange XP Search and IntelliMouse Explorer problems

For search open Explorer and go to the Windows\Inf folder. Locate the srchasst.inf file. Right click it and select Install. You'll need your XP CD or the files from the I386 folder. (This fix will require you to have your Win XP CD).

The Windows\Inf folder is a hidden folder. You can adjust your Explorer Folder Options (View tab) to Show hidden files and folders. You can also click Start, Run and enter %SystemRoot%\Inf to open directly to the Inf folder.

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.

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.

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!

Hello everybody! (i edited the title, slow changed to stutter)

I would be superglad if anyone could solve this for me.
When my CPU gets high (playing games, musicapps) the mouse gets really slow. The cursor (dont know the words, trying it with a lexicon) stutters, stammers .. when moving the mouse, the cursor doesnt respond, but suddenly it has moved to much. Its really hard to click the right thing (in musicapps, turning off an effect to free cpu).
Editing maps in warcraft III is really hard. Every ten seconds this happens, and it lasts for about ten seconds (not exactly ten seconds ).

Do you understand what i mean? I find it really hard to explain in english.

Other hardware: PIV 2,26Ghz, 1Gb ram, SIS645DX motherboard (i think), GForce TI4200 and dual monitors.
Im not sure, but i think i had the same problem when running version 5. I really need the "Enable program specific buttons settings" for my musicapps!

Edit: I have new batteries. I have reinstalled everything. Its probably always been like this (cant remember). I have the reciever close to the mouse. Its uses usb.

A:Intellimouse Wireless Slow when high CPU

CrackBaby,

I bet that you are getting VERY high utilizations when this occurs...with extremely high SPIKES in utilization. You can see this type of "stuttering" even with a wired mouse, if the resources are just not there to be had.

Add in the extra overhead of the IR or RF processing for the wireless activity, and the traffic on the USB, and you have slightly compounded the problem. Additionally, I wonder what the service priority (difference) may be between the PS/2 mouse connection and a USB mouse connection? That may make a difference also?

In any event, it sounds like you are overtaxing the system. What is the utilization like when this happens...gaming really stresses resources!!! Try monitoring it.

Oh, and getting the latest software for the mouse wouldn't hurt either :^)

In the past week the mouse will disconnect and it will not come back on if I unplug and reconnect it or switch ports. The only thing that will restore it is turning the computer off and then on.

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.

Alright heres the story...

girlfriends comp won't load her wireless logitech mouse, I disconnect my optical explorer bring it over and let her use that until she buys her own. No problems works fine on hers. She gets her new one I bring mine home and reconnect it, boot up, umm no mouse...wha? Yeah me = angry.

So basically I've tried lots of junk, regedit stuff (may have missed a few files possible), updated intellipoint software, tried USB ports.

This is what has happened...it gets detected in the USB port however Win XP doesn't know what the device is...doesn't even know its a mouse.

The lights work, the camera light and the back one. So it doesn't seem to be the mouse. It worked fine on this system only 2 days ago.

Is it possible for viruses to spread to hardware peripherals like my mouse?

I've included pics from "msinfo32"...3 different shots...one showing I have no IRQ conflicts, another showing that I have an "ERROR" and the other telling me what my error is "Device Cannot Start"...real helpful...you'd think it'd tell me why.

I have Intellimouse Explorer mouse and am using it with Windows Xp on my new Abit 865chipset system (I have latest BIOS). It works fine except that speed often kicks down after system has been up a while. I have two monitors hooked up and I have mouse set to a high speed so that I can move cursor from one monitor to another without having to move mouse all over keypad too much.

Anyhow, it works fine after bootup but sometimes will slow down to regular slow speed after it has been on a few hours. I looked at Mouse control thing and acceleration and everything seems to be set in place.

The only way I have found to fix this is to reboot. I'm wondering if anyone has a fix for this?

You say "after a while"... what does that mean? Are you sure it is based on time? It is more likely a software issue - you are running something else that is killing the mouse driver. You can test this by booting up and not doing anything - just let the machine sit for a few hours.

WindowsXP conflict with 802.11 wireless?

I have a very similar problem with my ACER laptop.
It's new, and the first week everything was fine but the second week the web page problem started. I can't open Google.com and a few other sites.
IE always says "page cannot be displayed". Firefox says "operation timed out".
Unlike in the previous case, Yahoo is fine. MSN,Microsoft, Symantec and most others also no problem.
It all started after I downloaded a bunch of WindowsXP patches from Microsoft and the latest Norton Anti-Virus definitions on August 27, 2005.
I've fiddled with so many settings in IE, WindowsXP, and Norton Anti-Virus that I can't remember them all, but nothing has an effect.

I use my laptop's built-in 802.11g wireless card(broadcom) and I suspect a conflict between the latest WindowsXP Updates and the newest wireless protocols. Or maybe there's some new, unrecognized Mal-ware out there.

I've read too many postings about a wireless laptop all of a sudden not opening some websites in August 2005. Or did the same person post around different sites?

My mouse has recently become erratic and occasionally locks completely needing a restart. I would like to install (?reinstall) driver software but I alway find myself at this Microsoft site -

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/downloads/default.mspx

Unfortunately, although I can click the down arrows next to the first three questions the fourth doesn't produce any options and the 'Go' button doesn't work.

Can anyone advise an alternative Intellimouse download site please?

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...

Does the computer seem to recognize the fact that the hardware is installed? If so, have you used the CONNECT button on the receiver AND the mouse? Have you checked the batteries?

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'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.

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?

A while back i purchased a Tenda wireless dongle and started to use it instead of a very long winded wireless to wired connection bridge between two computers. Anyway, the dongle was suggested by a housemate who uses the exact same model and make on our wireless hub in the house. Everything was fine until a few weeks after purchase it started to have issue connecting particularly after restart. I tore several clumps of hair out trawling the internet to find a cure to the issue... A friend even lent me a unique dongle but it provided a temporary fix before following in the same footsteps. I even tried both dongles (identical in make and model) across the two PC's on the network they belonged to. On both occasions each dongle connected instantly and without issue on the other PC and took a long time and eventually failed on my PC. Finally i give up and went as far as re-installing windows 7 fresh and slowly installing everything again including the dongle.

Everything was fine... (approximately 2-3 months) until tonight were its decided to tell me that it cant find the network im trying to connect. My housemate however is currently connected to the network fine, and the PC with the same dongle connects as always without a hitch. I've tried restarting both the wireless hub, the dongle the computer the drivers disabling and re enabling everything that can possibly be connected with internet.

Whats weird is it does however find my network and a few others occasionally, when it d... Read more

I know that this is a known issue (unresolved as far as I know) with Microsoft, but Intellimouse Explorer forward and back buttons do not work in Netscape 4.76. My OS is ME. Does anyone else have this problem and any suggestions. Yes, I have downloaded and installed the most recent drivers.

Are you sure that the navigator window is focused. Try clicking on the Navigator window and then try using the forward/back buttons.
