Mouse double-click issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have the Gigabyte GM-M6800 mouse, and the "back" button started doing a double click instead of a single click. It does not do it every time, but it does it pretty often.

I don't want to send it to Gigabyte cause I will have to pay for shipping to send it there, and the mouse itself cost only like $13.

Is there some way to fix this issue?

I tried downloading some little program that's supposed to fix this issue, but it didn't

PS: I tried the latest driver for the mouse and it didn't fix anything.

This same issue happened to my 2 year old Deathadder mouse about a month ago. After looking into it, it seems that it is pretty common to start happening with that mouse after about 2 years. The issue has to do with the mechanical parts of the click underneath. There are guides to go in and fix it, but you will likely void any and all warranty.

I just used it as an opportunity to get a new mouse thumb.gif

I went ahead and took the mouse apart. Since it cost only around 15$ and i didn't want to pay for shipping, i just went ahead and did it.

Man was it a pain to fix. There is this tiny metal thing in the clicking mechanism that is a nightmare to put back into place. I ended up breaking some things and improvising with masking tape and a toothpick to make it work again.

It works! I did make the button real sensitive to touch though lol... does not have as satisfying of a click to it.

The spring wore out. Switch needs to be replaced. Since you broke it, switch needs to be replaced.

Nice switches aren't that hard to fix unless you have butterfingers. For me the hardest part is just popping the case off the switch.
