Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer

Q: Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer

I have a Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer - about 2-3 years old. Today it
has frozen twice - I just wondered if it was wearing out - or what do you
think? Why would it suddenly freeze twice in one day?

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!

I've had my computer (Dell Latitude Core i7 x64) running Windows 10 32-bit for over a year and have been using the same mouse for many years, as far back as 2 computers possibly. 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. Any ideas what could be causing this?

It seems like maybe it happened after a recent automatic update..

I have the latest IntelliPoint drivers (5.5), but there is still no way of re-mapping the tilt wheel functions at all. It would be great for games if i could remap to arrow keys for example, because horizontal scrolling isnt recognised in many programs, or ANY games.

Please someone help if they have any idea...

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...

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.

Hi all, my computer is all fine and dandy now. Yea! Except for one thing.. I just went out and bought an Intellimouse optical and I installed it. It works and all except the two little side buttons. In the quickstart guide it lets me choose the mouse as the Intellimouse Optical but it only tells about it. Then in the Intellipoint software v4.0 it doesn't have the option to choose intellimouse opt only intellimouse. I'm thinking of downloading v4.1 but it has LOTS of bad reviews. What do i do?

Hi this is my first post here.
I have just installed a Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer under Windows ME and Im having many problems. After install it runs something called hidserv. With hidserv running, it unloads my other USB devices, my scanner and printer. Hidserv is loaded weather I use the instellipoint software that came with the mouse or not. The only way I can get my scanner and printer loaded again is to completly uninstall the mouse and software and delete the file hidserv.exe off my system. 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. Upon reboot windows shows conflicts in the device manager for my USB scanner and printer. Hidserv is once again running.
I can see that the mouse conflicts with my scanner and printer anyone have any ideas on how to resolve the conflicts?

Thanks....

If you haven't already, install the intellipoint driver. Although the mouse will work using the native Windows driver, you will have fuller use of its capabilities if you install the latest driver.

Just recently, I've been having trouble with my mouse.

Sometimes, when I single click something, it double clicks it instead. For example, when I want to press the back button, it goes back two pages, even if I click once.

And other times, when I try clicking a link, it doesn't respond. And it takes me a few clicks to actually go to it.

When I open up dropdown menus, whenever I click it once, it goes back up. It takes a few times for me to click it and it stays.

I have no clue what the problem is. It just started happening.

Is there any way I can fix it or any small little tests I can do to check it?

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.

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.

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?

Thanks,

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

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Well, wait - I had one problem. I turned off the mouse icon in the system tray and my settings (double click for pusing the wheel in) stopped working. Do you have the icon turned on?

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.

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 need to power down at that point and restart.I have tries running spybot, cwshredder and adaware. Norton crashes when i try to run it and when i tried re-installing, the installer crashes and won't let me continue. Microsoft INternet Explorer has also taken to really chugging aloong and is extremely slow. I also cannot download any files without the whole system crashing as noted above.

Hi yuri gagarin, welcome to TSG....

What operating system are you running and have you made sure you have the correct and newest drivers?

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

I just installed Windows ME and my mouse pointer is now transparent.

Have you tried using a different pointer?

Select Start, Settings, Control Panel, Mouse, and the Pointer tab. Try some of the option and see what happens.

I really need your expert valuable help.
All of a sudden, my MS Intellemouse (wireless) does not scroll smoothly. It jumps in a jerky motion when scrolling. Have changed the batteries.
In the Control Panel; Display Settings are set at 1024X768. The mouse is set for slow scroll (have tried faster settings) the Enable accelerated scrolling and Vertical scrolling are both checked.
Am running XP Pro with plenty of RAM.
Thanks

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?

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?

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?

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:
Intellimouse w\IntelliEye 1.0
USB and PS/2 Compatible

Its a intellimouse with a laser thingy in it. I havent been able to use it at all in the last two days and since then I've been navigating my computer with my keyboard.

and ...this may seem dumb but...........did you load the drivers from the disk provided?
