They let me RMA without a serial number because mine didn't have one either. My replacement has the sticker with the serial and everything but only everything other than the serial number remains rolleyes.gif

I'm sorry to hear about that. I have not had the problem myself and am not sure what could be done to correct it.

Try doing a system restore from your last restore point, get the old software working and then try reinstalling the new software again. Also check to see that your MS .NET is fully updated.

Another thing I think people should do if they're having problems with a usb device install is to update their motherboard firmware. I really hate to recommend that because it's easy to mess it up if not done right, and you never know who's good and who just thinks they're good with computers. However, I have had some pretty strange and unusual problems over the years that were fixed either by resetting the BIOS or updating it.

The serial number on my RAT9 is on a sticker on the bottom of the mouse. When you RMA a RAT, I think they only ask you for a serial number if you can find it on the mouse. I think you can bypass that requirement if you can't find the serial number on the mouse itself. (I returned two mice for RMA over the last few months, so I could be confusing them).

Anyone else not have a serial number on the bottom of their RAT?

My R.A.T 3 Doesn't have it on the bottom either. It just on the box so you gotta make sure you keep the box around.

I thought I'd post a few tips I've learned regarding the care and feeding of my RAT 9.

1. I was having trouble waking it up and I found that if I set the the USB port to not sleep I no longer had that problem.
See Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Power Options. Look for USB.

2. I also find waking up the computer first, but touching a key, letting it bring the monitors on line then waking up the mouse by hitting a button works every time.

3. I was having occasional tracking problems. I now keep a can of air, like Dust Off, available on my desk. I few toots fixes that. These precision mice really don't like dust and those little hairs things. It doesn't look dusty or you can't see hairs. But they are there. Just hit it with the canned air and its magic again. Blowing that canned air over your keyboard once in a while keeps it fresh looking too.

My Rat MMO7 arrived today. What a mouse, most impressive. First thing i notice is how much more weight it has vs the rat 7. Pics just dont do this mouse justice, you really have to see this mouse in person to get the full scope of how amazing this thing really is. I spent the first 20min just playing with the lights on this mouse. Its very solid and not flimsy at all.

Ill post some pics once ive played some more lol

Very nice mouse. Will need to learn how to profile it now. Only the basic buttons work for bf3. Super nice mouse, feels real nice. No issues

im kinda sad hearing this. i was a big rat9 fan because it was perfect for my hand but the tracking issue is just so bad. sure i can always blow it with compressed air but none of the other wireless mice that i have used are having that kind of problem. i currently have razer naga epic, mamba and logitech g700. i never had dust/tracking issues with them.

Ninethourpm, yes it is a very nice combo. Ive just picked up a Belkin n52te speed pad so i dont use the keyboard for gaming anymore....unless i have to. I am at a state where i am just so happy with my whole system now. The mouse and speedpad were the last of my upgrades for the near future.... like the next two weeks..maybe a little less, see how nvidia does with the new gpu lol.

Some family who were intown stopped by the house and the whole setup just boggled them, jaw drops and lots of compliments....compliments are nice to hear arent they biggrin.gif

Im still have trouble getting use to the new mouse, its alot of mouse to learn and will take time. Im going to have to work my thumb out so it doesnt cramp learning the new layout. I have programed it to perform almost every single function for character movement in bf3 and that is amazing as there is alot a character can do in that game. Ive decided to just use the speedpad for vehical commands, jump and if needs be a few of the keys from the mouse that are too uncomfortable to assigned buttons. All in all super setup for fps games.

Agree 100%. I have never had any dust/tracking issues on any other wireless or wired laser mice I have owned.

This is why it's so perturbing when people say to clean the laser aperture when the tracking acts up, even though it clearly looks clean (even under a magnifying glass).

I was having problems with mine that made me give up on it (cleaned it multiple times). I took it to work fro testing and the problems never showed up until one day, and then when I cleaned it I actually got a ton of dust and crap out of it (very dusty at work). Now I've brought it home again and so far the fault has not shown up at all over the last few weeks. It's not very dusty in my home and so I really doubt dust is the problem. I'm actually hoping it will break down again so I can get it replaced.
