About a week ago my Deathadder started freaking out if I lifted it off of the mousepad. It shoots to all corners of my screen and randomly clicks sometimes. Well, it's still doing it and now it's worse. It's basically impossible to play a game with this happening. Before I go out and buy a new one and test this ones durability against concrete I want to make sure that there isn't any saving it from its current state. Tried updating firmware and didn't have any luck with that. The optical sensor is probably just dead or dying as the mouse is around 2 years old.

Two years old,your mouse served you well, time to retire it. Try the deathadder v2.

Razer (from what I have read) isn't known for lasting quality.

it shouldnt be clicking random if its the sensor, I would say it may be a conflict or driver problem etc. did you try updating the firmware or reinstalling windows.

If it was just jerky etc. I would say yes but if its randomly clicking that dosent sound like a sensor problem. I have torn apart a few deathadders and made some frankenstein monsters that still work today. the one I bought retail is still working for me after 2 years..

Also dont smash it against concret give it to me and I will strip it an di think i have the parts to make another one depending on whats wrong, I really need a good microswitch from on of the clickers so think about it.
