R.A.T. 7 Problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I've had my rat for awhile now and was wondering if anyone else shared the problems that I seem to be having.

My first and most annoying is that every once and awhile the mouse fails to respond to movement, then buttons all work fine but it takes about 30 seconds for the mouse to begin responding again, which can get quite annoying while gaming. I have not been able to work out what causes it to stop responding as it can happen in the middle of a gaming session or just watching a movie.

My other problem is more an annoyance then anything else though I am worried it could damage the mouse. I seem to have an annoying habit of shocking myself on the screw near the thumb of the mouse, it got so annoying that I now have electrical tape over it but now am shocking myself on the tail end of it...any one else have this happen?

Thanks in advance all!

I haven't heard of either of those problems for the RAT 7 (which I do personally have and use). The first problem might (small chance) be an issue with your mousepad so I'd try using a different surface first. Otherwise you might want to try uninstalling drivers and redownloading them from their website and using a different USB slot.

I definitely haven't heard of the second problem. I'd try discharging yourself of electricity by touching something metal before your mouse and then grabbing your mouse to see if it still occurs (to see if it's the mouse generating the charge or you) a couple times. Where exactly on the tail end is it shocking you also?
