Mouse is wack

Q: Mouse is wack

Hi. This is gonna sound odd but every time I move my mouse real fast it goes out of control. If I don't move the mouse the cursor stays but with one little twitch and it is half-way across the screen again. This also tends to happen in Linux but Win2k is the worst. If I don't move it for about 3 seconds it goes back to normal until I move it fast again. And I am not even moving it that fast!!! Please help. Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hey guys,

so here's the deal, I was going to play some League Of Legends with my brother and forgot I hadn't installed ventrillo yet so I did that and then I hooked up my headphones and started talking to him. however he couldn't hear me so I went to control panel and the ventrillo settings and started changing some settings around until he could hear me...we never found a solution and now my sound on my computer is messed up and I can't hear anything. I was just wondering if there was any way I could set the settings back to default or something? because I really don't understand this whole audio thing
any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

My explorer.exe does not want to cooperate with me. It "does" a combination of the feared "restarting" and "just shutting off and not coming back on."

R really don't know what to do as I have tried at least 20 or 30 of the things listed if you google "fix explorer.exe." Just tell me what you need to know.

By the way, give me links to anything you want me to download or something.
Thanks for prompt help!

I recently changed hardware on my pc. I did not uninstall or change anything about my hard drive, but when using it in the new pc, it kept telling me to activate windows. This was strange, never happened to me before so why now. So i go through so much
trouble trying to fix it and nothing worked. Even in settings under activation blah blah, it still wouldn't let me activate because "the servers were down". ok. So i call Microsoft support, and he keeps trying to get me to repurchase windows 10.
No. Bad customer service  rep. He did not help at all just made me do everything i already did and  when it said the servers were down, he told me its because i don't have a legit license. I downloaded windows 10 when it was free in 2016 or whenever.
So i never got a product key. So I used to windows 10 installer tool and it seemed to work, the watermark was gone. but later that day when i came home it was back. Then i tried the activation again and it worked. This was incredibly frustrating and annoying.
so i wanted to leave negative feedback to windows/microsoft. But i dont have the feedback hub, so i go to windows store and try to search bnut the search function doesnt work. I dont know why i thought any other windows app would be easy to use after everything
i just experienced. I have no question. This isnt about windows 8. This is the only place i found to try to tell microsoft anything. so tedious and annoying. yuck.

I got an old Inspiron 4000 Dell and installed WinXP on it. I hit the "34 Minute Hiccup" so I deleted a file named WDMA_es3.inf. I assumed this was my audio driver for my laptop. When I got XP set up there was of course no sound. When I tried to install the ESS Maestro 3i driver my computer wouldn't start up so I removed the drivers in safe mode. The sound card should be an ESS Maestro 3i or something like that. Are there any other drivers I could use? any response would really help. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi guys,

New here, so I hope I'm not out of line asking for help, and that I'm asking correctly. I've exhausted my own ideas on this but the problem is driving me IN.SANE.

THE ISSUE:
When using an external (USB) mouse with my ASUS Win7 laptop, the mouse randomly lifts up and re-clicks while clicking or while dragging (despite the button remaining consistently depressed), resulting in selection of the wrong objects, inadvertent double-clicks, and incorrect dragging. From what I can tell, this affects only the left click and not the right.

WHAT I'VE TRIED:
Laptop touchpad - no problem. Everything works fine with the built-in touchpad.
Another mouse - same problem. These are wired mice, so it's not a battery or connection issue.
Another USB port - same problem in all four. There's no visible issue with the motion of the mouse/cursor, so it seems to be communicating OK via USB.
Safe Mode - no problem, from what I can tell. The wired USB mouse seems to click and drag as normal in Safe Mode.
Mouse Settings - no effect. Adjusting the click/double-click/drag settings doesn't seem to change anything.
System Resources - no effect. Clicking/dragging seems to show the same results in the RAM/CPU monitors whether I'm having the problem (with the mouse) or performing the same actions without the problem (with the trackpad).

WHAT I CANNOT FIGURE OUT:
What haven't I ruled out? What else could be causing the issue?

The problem came on suddenly after about a year, but I... Read more

Hey mate, and welcome,

Possible problem:
1. Mouse itself is bad. Either the button itself or internally
2. Driver is not at its best

Try:
Going to the mouse manufacture website to download the most recent driver for your Windows 7, either 32 or 64 bit. If it doesn't work, try without any driver (so that windows driver takes over).

I had this problem after a Win 10 update. The mouse stopped working both USB and Bluetooth. I tested a different mouse and that didn't work either. Touchpad worked fine. So I called Dell tech support and they suggested I uninstall Windows update and re-install the chipset drivers that they provided. I did both and mouse still didn't work. Then tech support suggested I do a Windows Restore. Again that did not solve the problem. Then they suggested I do a Windows reinstall. At this point I got annoyed since I have 30 programs that I use for my business and a total Win re-install is out of to question. I thought there must be another simpler way to solve this problem. So I did an online search and found a fix. It was a very simple problem and needed a very simple fix:
I was able to fix this problem by adding a missing MultiString value to this registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96F-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Value Type: Multi String
Value Name: UpperFilters

Good Morning mayersr, I don't know of software applicable for this kind of problem apart from malware products.
Are you aware this symptom is very likely a viral kind of problem.
What is the system and specs and what kind of malware and A/V do you have?
Cheers, qldit.

Hey all. I had a recent round of Windows updates for Vista and one of them apparently killed my mouse. I have a generic Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard. The keyboard continued to work just fine, but not the mouse. Vista recognizes the mouse as a "HID-compliant mouse". My guess is that something happens to the drivers after one of the updates.

Anyway, I used System Restore to return my computer to the period just before installing the updates and the mouse worked again.

Here is a list of the 11 updates--I presume one of them is the cause:

1) Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 in Windows Vista (KB947864)
2) Security Update for ActiveX Killbits for Windows Vista (KB948881)
3) Security Update for Windows Vista (KB941693)
4) Security Update for Windows Vista (KB945553)
5) Security Update for Windows Vista (KB948590)
6) Update for Windows Vista (KB938371)
7) Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - April 2008 (KB890830)
8) Update for Windows Mail Junk E-mail Filter [April 2008] (KB905866)
9) Security Update for Microsoft Office Visio 2007 (KB947590)
10) Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB949037)
11) Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System (KB946691)


Obviously, my next step would be to install each update individually and try to identify the potential cause, but before doing that I thought I'd come here and see if anyone has heard about this sort of thing happening before and how to work around i... Read more

With my old computer and mouse, I used to be able to use the middle button for various tasks susch as opening a link in another tab, rotating the camera in games etc and i have got very used to this.

I recently purchased a Dell XPS One and am using the mouse which came with it which, according to Device Manager, is the Logitech HID Compliant Cordless Mouse.
I am running Vista Home Premium x32, and i am unable to use the middle button for this. Instead, in firefox, it is a sort of zoom function. Yesterday it started working - i don't know why - but today it has failed again and is back to the zoom function.

If i hold down the CTRL button and left click, this is the same as middle button should be, so is there any way i can swap these functions around?

I don't know if this is a problem with the mouse or with vista, or with me not finding some setting.

If it helps, my mouse driver is version 4.0.101.0. which i think is up to date.
 

A:Logitech HID-compliant Cordless Mouse - middle mouse button issue

Have you gone to Mouse in the Vista Control Panel and see what choices you are given there to manage the mouse?

What does it say the mouse is if you look at the bottom of the mouse itself? Is there a model number?

If its a Logitech Mouse you may be able to install the Logitech SetPoint software to add extra functionality or programing options: javascript:downloadSW();

Hi all,
As the title says i occasionally get this problem. My computer qwill freeze for a few seconds followed by system lag which seems to get worse (freezing every few seconds/taking 2 seconds to recognise a click etc.). If i reset my computer it resolves the issue but i was hoping you guys may be able to give me more insight as to what the issue may be.

It nearly always happens when i am browsing in firefox. Have never had it happen to me during gaming etc. which is why i'm hesitant to believe it is to do with my GPU or it's drivers which are always kept up to date.

i have included pics of the cursor and what processes were running at the time of the freeze/lag

After about 1 minute the mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until I left click mouse. Tool bar on browser also greys out but comes back after left click. Video and sound also are choppy. Not sure if this is related. Flash keeps crashing. Any ideas whats wrong? Windows 7 pro. Asus desktop. This occurs on Firefox, Chrome and IE. This seemed to start after Microsoft update and Flash updates

A:Mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until left click of mouse

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

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?

Thanks,

Stephen (I'm Stumped ))

I'm not using any external pointing devices, just the trackpoint and trackpad.  Windows keeps installing (if I uninstall it comes right back) a HID Mouse entry.  When I disable it, I don't seem to lose any mouse (or Pen) functions-- the 2nd HID Mouse is the Pen entry.  Not sure what the first HID Mouse entry is?  Still having ridiculous, ongoing issues with the mouse freezing, disappearing and skipping around.   only option is to disable - uninstall comes right back

I can find all over the internet five years worth of people that cannot watch videos, download, buffer, or even load pages unless they are constantly moving their mouse.

If I click a video on youtube or anything I have to tickle my mouse pad constantly or video freezes and only audio plays.

Did anyone anywhere ever get this sorted and can they come back and say what they did to resolve it please?

Hey all,

I just installed Windows 7 earlier today. The install went fine, until right near the end. I had to click 'next' to a question, which I had already done a few times, but this time the tab was not responding. I tried again and again, then finally just hovered over the tab and pressed enter on my keyboard which did the trick.

Now that the OS is up and running, everything is working fine but I just have one problem. My left mouse button is doubling up as a 'back' button. So if I am in a folder and want to double click a new folder, or even if I just left click on empty space, it will take me backwards one folder. A nightmare in internet explorer aswell.

For the time being Ive switched the two buttons around, so I have an action button, but no right click (on the left mouse button now) anymore.

Ive tried installing the original drivers, and in compatibility for Vista, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Anybody have any suggestions? Id be real grateful to hear them

Cheers,

Oh and the mouse is a Logitech LX7 wireless.

Thanks,
Mikes

Hi, I am using the Dell Inspiron 26 7000 series.
I"ve recently encountered a very strange bug. Whenever I turn on my computer, whether from hibernation, shutdown my mouse doesn't work properly.
What happens is this, I'll go to open anything (Firefox, word, excel etc) and suddenly my mouse cursor would jump to another part of the screen. And suddenly, except for that one program that I have opened, i can no longer left/right click anywhere else. sometimes while moving, I would even end up dragging my menu bar and dock it somewhere else on the screen.
I thought it was the mouse, but I bought a brand new out of the box and that one does it too. i uninstalled the trackpad driver, and unplugged the mouse and use the trackpad and it still does it.
I cannot even use the trackpad, because of this issue because it won't recognize my trying to middle click. I can post a video of it later if you like to show yall what's going on.

My problem is that occasionally, when I click or scroll my mouse, my computer acts as though the "CTRL" button is being held down. This problem will occur for a few minutes, then it will go back to normal, then become a problem again. So what happens is all of a sudden I will be scrolling my mouse all the font on the screen will increase or decrease or it will scroll forward and backwards between previously viewed webpages. Also when this is happening, my typing will be messed up as well. If I were to hit the "p," the print menue would pop up. It will also type in all caps and if I try to type a "7" for example, it will come up as an "&." And when I click the mouse in a paragraph of text online, it will just highlight the entire paragraph of text. I don't know if this will help but it usually happens right after the top bar of my web browser (the one with the maximize, minimize, and close window button) goes light grey. Normally, when you are at a web page, this is a dark grey and if you get a pop up, the background window will go to a light grey color. So this problem usually happens when my window acts as though there was a pop up, but their really wasn't. I had this problem a couple weeks ago and I had installed a pop up blocker a couple days before that. I uninstalled this blocker and my computer had been fine for the last couple of weeks. Now all of a sudden it is doing it again. I have not downloaded any pop up block... Read more

A:Mouse Wheel and Clicking the Mouse makes my screen go wacky!

Keyboards are very cheap, try a new one and save yourself lots of grief. Chances are the matrix circuit has some foreign goop on it that's conducting just well enough to make certain keys seem to be pushed, especially under varying humidity conditions.

The mouse is only doing what mice do when the certain keys are depressed so it's probably not at fault.

You could try blowing the keyboard out with compressed air but I wouldn't waste too much time on such a low dollar item.

Good luck.

Lately I have been having an annoying problem with my wireless mouse. For some reason the pointer will lag, and be very sluggish and jumpy. I've had this mouse on this computer for about a year and I've had no problem. Out of nowhere this problem is happening. I've tried re installing drivers with no luck. I tried uninstalling intellipoint and re-installing it, but when I tried I got the BSOD, and then it completely disabled my mouse and keyboard so I had to use wired peripherals to go in to safe mode and do a system restore. Now everything is working again, except my mouse is still jumpy.

Thanks for any help.

A:Annoying mouse lag - Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500

Erratic behaviour from wireless peripherals, especially keyboards and/or mice, particularly where they were working correctly before, generally points to a dying battery in the peripheral. Have you tried replacing it? If it is rechargeable, it may no longer be holding charge and will also need replacing.

The manufacturer says that they don't provide the drivers because the mouse uses generic drivers

I have a customer who swears up and down that 30% of the time during the day when he is working, the left click function of his mouse does not work. To make this even stranger, it only occurs in the upper right hand corner of the screen when trying to close applications or minimize.

I have not been able to reliably duplicate (although I have had it happen to me), but I do not sit in front of the computer all day either.

He has a Logitech wireless mouse (which I have updated the drivers for). We also tried new batteries.

At this time we are trying a standard corded Microsoft Mouse to see if that solves his issue. I will post back in a few days if that resolves the issue.

Has anyone else ever heard of this issue, have a solution?

I told him to drink after work, not before.... not sure if that will help or not .

This is really starting to annoy the hell out of me. I just picked up a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse, the Notebook 5000 mouse to be exact for my home entertainment center.

I have my PC ran to a monitor and a 55 inch Samsung LED LCD TV for watching movies etc. The problem is, the HDMI cord is run threw the wall so the PC is in another room so I cant use the normal mouse on the PC. I bought a bluetooth mouse due to the increased range but I'm having nothing but issues.

I have the Microsoft Bluetooth dongle btw, didn't come with the mouse, the mouse actually comes with no dongle.

Anyway it connects fine but if I stop using it for like an hour or whatever it disconnects and nothing I do will reconnect it unless I take my other mouse, go into bluetooth devices, delete it and readd it all over again.

WHY THE HELL does it keep doing this lol?

It's very annoying, I sit down to watch a movie and discover I cant start it without first going into the other room and readding my mouse.

I'm well within range and I've tried moving the bluetooth mouse to the same room as the PC to use it with the PC and it still does the same thing.

It's your dongle. I have the same mouse and it works absolutely fine. I'll bet you have the USB option set to power the dongle down when unused. How's the radio in the mouse supposed to wake up a sleeping dongle?
