Sporadic mouse problem...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Over the past couple months I have had this issue, and im unable to clarify what the problem is. ITS DRIVING ME NUTS! My mouse doesnt always "work" and by this I mean:

- The mouse (deathadder) is always on and windows recognizes it
- When I left click sometimes it works (I can close and open windows), but other times it takes multiple clicks to have an effect
-IE, Dragging windows across my dual monitors is sometimes almost impossible, as the mouse seems to "unclick" as I'm dragging the window and it stops partially moved, and I have go back and left click again. Sometimes 3 clicks and drags are required to move browsers across monitors.
-IE, If i left click on the scroll bar on the right of this page, and drag up and down quickly, the bar will begin to move down, then stops and I have to go back up and click again and drag.
- Issue is same on 2 different mice, other is microsoft optical mouse
- Issue is on all browsers and other running programs, like word.
- Installed drivers again on deathadder site, installed mobo, usb drivers, and issue is still present in safe mode
-Plugged mouse in 2 different usb ports on back of mobo and issue is still present

Its like my clicks dont register sometimes, and if I drag to highlight they do for a second but then stops registering.

Any ideas????

Sounds like the microswitch for the left mouse button is going bad. It happens due to normal wear (and sometimes abuse, LOL). You can get Omron microswitches (Part No. D2FC-F-7N is very popular and works very well) on eBay, for just a couple of bucks, if you want to repair it yourself or if you have an electronic hobbyist buddy, who can do it for you. Replacing the microswitch(es) requires de-soldering and soldering; it's not hard if you have the equipment and experience, otherwise seek help from someone who does. I would also suggest getting new mouse feet, while you are at it, because two of the three screws that hold the mouse together are hidden under the front mouse feet, which will have to be pulled off. The third screw is hidden under the label on the bottom of the mouse; you can just poke a hole with the Philips screwdriver to get to that one. If you decide to open the mouse, you'll void the warranty, of course, so if your mouse is fairly new, you might be better off doing an RMA replacement.

I re-read your post and noticed that you mentioned this was happening with a second mouse as well, which makes the above hardware fault seem less likely. Any chance you have another device connected, that can cause (or simulate) a mouse click or release? Like maybe a touchpad? Programmable keyboard? Joystick? Presentation device? Graphics tablet? "3D Connexion Navigator"? Just for experiment's sake, try disconnecting all other USB and P/S2 devices, except for one keyboard and one mouse. Also, you might try both of your mice on a second computer, just on the off chance that they are both having the same fault with the microswitch.

I would have come to the same conclusion (because I've had the problem before), but he stated:

Longshot but do you have a wacom pen tablet? The drivers for it jacked up my razer mouse for some reason. Uninstalled the drivers and the problem was solved!

I think the problem is solved. I had a third wireless mouse lying around this morning and plugged it in and all seems to be working. The dragging problem seems to have been fixed. Ill post later tonight when i get off to see if it has solved the problem.

I tried all ya'll suggestions and only had the mouse plugged in on usb and the problem still occured. Good ideas though i never though of that.
