Q: Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse MX518

Greetings I am presently using a Logitech Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse MX518 Trackball mouse It has a cable and is connected to one of my computer's USB ports I started using it when my cordless Trackball suddenly quot died quot It just froze in the middle of my monitor and every attempt to revive it failed Googling for a solution only led me to see that I wasn't the only one experiencing this tragedy The Logitech forum is literally full of complains concerning the Trackball So after looking at many online reviews on mouses I have decided to purchase the Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse MX Even though I am only an occasional gamer the reviews on this mouse are so good that I have decided to buy it I bought it online at a good price and it will be delivered tomorrow Here is what pc users have to said about the MX on newegg com Newegg com - Logitech MX Buttons x Wheel USB Wired Optical dpi Gaming Mouse I am curious as to what type of mouse some of you are using It's funny how very little is written in pc forums concerning a mouse It's a small piece of hardware but it plays a huge role in the daily operation of your computer but especially I think in gaming For example last week when my cordless Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse MX518 Trackball died I couldn't immediately find this one and until I found it I couldn't use my computer

I have a Genius Traveler 515, Sucks big time... i'm really picky with mice!

Used to have a Laser BenQ that lasted me 2yrs. awesome feeling, awesome precision. this P.o.S. is not precise at all.. i'm looking for a Razer or a Logitech but the prices here are way too high

Even though i don't game too much.. i do like a precise mouse, preferrably a laser one i realized not so long ago that the mouse pad helps you a lot, too. but then, again, the prices here are too high

Hi all, jsut bought a new Logitech MX518 "gaming grade" mouse from Best Buy and even on the lowest dpi (400) the thing jitters all over the screen, even when I'm not touching it.

I'll look over at my monitor and see the mouse jsut spazzing out. I checked to make sure there is no lint over the optics; it is clear. I'm using a Dell mouse pad which is clean....

...is this mouse defective? Is it a setting? Any ideas?

I have a Logitech MX518 mouse, using with Vista Home Premium. I downloaded and installed the 64-bit driver (setpoint), and set the hotkeys on the mouse to numpad 7-8. In firefox, the new key assignments work fine- if I hit the mouse buttons while in a text box or something (search bar, whatever) I get the correct key assignment. But when I open up a full-screen game (WCIII: Frozen Throne), it fails to operate- with or without numlock on, tried with game detection on and off (when set to on, it is set to keep all settings and assignments). But in-game, the new key assignments do nothing! I didn't have this problem with the same mouse and setup on xp. All the settings look the same, and I think I have the right driver, since it works in in everything EXCEPT full screen games. help?

My mouse tends to stick and requires to be lifted off my desk.

What is the best surface e.g. colour/material etc on which to use an optical mouse

Thanks

A:Logitech Optical Mouse

Plain cloth surface (for eg. velvet) will suit fine. Colour doesn't matter.
Just curious, isn't usage of mouse pad is widely common? Or else, you can even use daily newspaper I guess, will sure be better than desk surface in my opinion.

Sometimes when my mouse clicks... nothing happens! Although the button IS sticky, I can tell when a "click" goes through by the feel and sound of the mouse. Recently, some clicks just don't do anything (this is terrible for online gaming). My right mouse button works fine however. Strangely, my clicks will sometime "catch up" with eachother, executing commands at a delayed rate. I have plenty of RAM (512mb) and plenty of HD space. I have a 1.8ghz proc. Any Ideas what the problem may be? I posted this already, but the post dissapeared after the forum went down.

A:Logitech Optical mouse... problems!

I believe that there are 2 things that might help you .
1. make sure that you are running the lastest "MouseWare" from logitech.
2. If the mouse if on a USB hub try and plug it directly into the mobo.
As a side note, i would open the mouse and make sure that there are no "foreign matters " inside that might cause a un normal operation of the buttons.
Quick question . Did all this start to happen "out of the blue" or did you had this problems from the very first moment when you pluged in the mouse ?

I have discovered an interesting problem. A Coca Cola night light(Liquid, filled with glitter, sort of a lava lamp effect.)plugged into the same outlet as computer, when turned on interferes with cordless mouse. My mouse seemed to, for no reason, began to work intermittently, the pointer skipping around the screen sometimes not moving at all. Tried many things, nothing helped, until I turned off night light, problem solved. Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse. FYI
 

A:Logitech Cordless Optical Mouse Interference

Hi, that is a strange problem, but this could be the cause, u say that when connected in the same outlet with the pc, (right?) if u connect it in other, it doesnt do it? Ok may that lamp, has EMF that go through the electric cables, which then affect the whole pc and not only the mouse?try connecting a ups or any stabilizer to the Pc, and connect it again.
If it fails, then throw it out of the window or into the bin.

I've just received my nice new Logitech mouse to replace my faulty Micro$oft Intellimouse 3.0 Explorer.

I've made a very good choice as this mouse is a lot more ergonomic that the old one which was too bulky for the hand.

It's the first mouse to use dual optical lasers and i noticed straight away how more precise the mouse pointer on the screen was moving.

All i need now is the Everglide Giganta mouse and wrist pad and i'll be happy with the better ergonomics of using the mouse and reducing RSI symptoms.

Would I recommend this mouse? YES :grinthumb
 

A:Logitech MouseMan Dual Optical Mouse

Glad it was a good choice.
I would have liked one of those myself apart from the fact I wanted a cordless mouse. The logitech cordless optical is the same shape and I find it very comfortable. I don't know if they will release a dual optical cordless mouse... I would think that such a mouse would devour batteries rather than nibble them

I have a Gigabyte GM-Force M7 optical gaming mouse that occasionally has a mind of it's own. About every 5 minutes or so while gaming (never in any other context) it begins to move on it's own and the right/left buttons sometimes go off. This usually lasts for about 10 to 15 seconds (or until I unplug it). The computer I'm using is Acer Aspire V5-572PG. So far I have tried:

- Unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in.
- Using a different USB port.
- Using a different mouse (also optical; works fine on another windows 8 computer).
- Re-installing the driver.

Probably unrelated but my webcam also doesn't work despite re-installing the driver. I may have to reset my computer to factory default at this rate.

A:Optical mouse wigs out while gaming - any advice?

Yes. Vista drivers work on Windows 7. There should be no fear at all.
Also, if you want to help the drivers, install it in compatibility mode :

Hey guys,

I got this mouse for Chrsitmas and love it. However about 2 weeks ago it started acting up. Basically it freezes for like 10-15 sec every couple minutes. I plugged another mouse in my USB port just to make sure it wasn't bad and it worked fine. I cleaned the batteries just to make sure there wasn't any connection problems. I have updated drivers, no spyware or viruses.
No idea what is wrong, aside from a hardware problem.

When I do, my Logitech G7 mouse freezes up until I reboot. I have seen others with this problem on Logitech's forums, but I have yet to see any fixes. Microsoft's support has been no help so far. I assume the issue is driver related, as others with different system setups also have the problem, but I don't know if it is a Logitech driver, or Microsoft...or whether a fix even exists for this problem.

Hello there!

I recently, about 2 weeks ago, got the same problem Aolish described in a post 2 years ago.(Can't link because I don't have 5posts yet)

The scroll wheel has it own life and scrolls by itself, mostly down but also up sometimes.

I've opend my mouse, cleaned it, removed the wheel and cleaned it etc. But the problem is still there.

I wonder if you (Aolish) managed to fix the problem with your MX518. If you did, I'd really appreciate if you could tell me how you did.
Because this problem is really annoying.

If anyone else had the same problem, or know how to fix this problem, feel free to post anything that can for help. All help is really appreciated.

But if it's not fixable, I'll have to start looking for a new mouse.

Hi there! I've recently been given a Logitech F710 gaming controller for my computer (a Samsung 305E on Windows 7 - I'm not 100% computer literate so let me know if you need any other specs). Most games work fine - I played Batman: Arkham Origins without any problems. However, many older games, such as Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect, I learned, require me to create a profile using the Logitech Gaming Software.

I downloaded this software from the official site. However, the Logitech Gaming Software does not recognize the controller, even when the Connection Utility also provided on the Logitech website does.

I am not really sure what to do. I have removed and re-downloaded Logitech Gaming Software, but I still cannot do anything with it. I would really appreciate any help, thank you very much.

I just purchased a Logitech wireless optical mouse and installed it and it works fine. But, I am used to my old mouse settings where the cursor didn't respond so quickly and dart across the screen.

I got an optical mouse with a scroll wheel for Christmas last year and the scroll wheel won't work on anything (IE, Compuserve, Netscape).
It has no brand name anywhere on the mouse so I can't look for a new driver. It came from Office Depot and it has no disk/CD. When I plugged it in it did not load anything else and I tried Add/Remove Hardware, but it didn't find anything new. Is there anything else I can do?

I bought myself the Logitech MX518 last week. So far it feels really good. The build quality is exceptional. The positioning of the buttons is very intuitive. Changing dpi on the fly is a good bonus for FPS gaming.

I have relatively small hands but find the MX518 very comfortable.

A:Logitech g330 gaming headset

If it don't work on your pc and other pc then I think the problem is with the mic. Updating Realtek driver may go bad if you chosen the bad driver but as you tested it on another pc then the problem may be with the mic itself. I would recommend you to return it and make the seller test it there.

Hi there,

I installed Win7 RC 7100 on my gaming rig a couple of months ago. All was well until I got to the Logitech Gaming drivers for my Rumblepad 2 and Force Feedback Racing Wheel. Using Vista x64 drivers my system crashed repeatedly (cant recall exact error message)

The logitech website says that most Vista drivers will not have any issues with Win7, however I am a little apprehensive about reformatting if the problem occurs again.

My questions are:

1. Is anybody else having the same probs?
2. Is there a solution to this?(apart from not installing Win7)

I really liked the the look and feel of Win7 however not being able to use game controllers on my gaming rig sort of defeats the purpose.

Thanks in advance.

It might be a Logitech app for the screen display. I recall that there was an app that checked news and things. If that can't access the 'net, perhaps it's causing your keyboard not to work. It's a long shot and it never happened with my G15, but what happens if you prevent that app from running?

Is there a way the images captured by an optical mouse be sent via USB and saved in any format?

It's my understanding that the captured images are processed and then the movement data only sent to the USB port. Is there a way I can tweak this?

I've tried everything logical!

but I cant get my PS2 Optical Mouse to work on XP.

It's supposed to be compatable, so no drivers or software came with it.

Any ideas?

A:XP & PS2 Optical Mouse

My first idea is that you need to give more information. Like the name brand and model of the optical mouse. Is it wireless ? Is it new ? Did it EVER work ?

If it did, what happened just before it went bad ?

Was there an "old" mouse? Did you uninstall that mouse's drivers ?

Does the optical mouse work on another computer ? Does another mouse work on your (main) computer ?

Does a conflict show in the Device Manager ?
Does the device show up in Device Manager ?

Is it plugged in ?
Is it plugged into the PS2 port, and not the keyboard port?

Does it need batteries and if not are they still good ?

What do you mean by "can't get it to work". Is it completely dead, or do you have partial function?

Does your BIOS have a switch to enable/disable a PS2 mouse and did you make sure it is enabled ?

Does your Motherboard have a jumper to enable/disable a PS2 mouse and is it enabled?

What's the history of your system ? Is it new or used? Have you owned it for a long time or did you just get it ?

My second idea is that you should first let go of the notion that WinXP has anything to do with your malfunctioning optical mouse. Unless you have some red-haired ******* step-child of an optical mouse manufactured by some highly isolated cult located off the Fiji Islands, and imported by Boolong-Bang tribe for distribution in the United States, chances are that your XP and your mouse are just fine, and that the problem is more in the realm of "You".

OK and reboot.

If i go to device manager and remove the HID-Compliant Device i have found to be the one related to my problem then when i scan for hardware changes it finds it installs it and starts working as intended after that. i would like to know how i fix it so i don't have to do this each time i start my pc :S.

also i have tried un-installing / re-installing and also updating the software+hardware and have tried various combos of this and still have no luck . any help would be appreciated :D thanks

Hello! (First post.)
I have the Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset, and recently it started dropping off sounds from games. When i switch to the speakers, everythings okay. I played with the Windows 7 sound configuration and figured out that it only drops off 1-channel sounds. And to make it weirder, when i take it off my head, it works.

Suggestions?

Lately I've been having troubles with my Logitech Optical Mouse. It's been locking up on me, I've tried everything and I can't get it to unlock and the batteries aren't dead. Can anyone help?
 

A:Optical Mouse Lock Up?

Try unplugging it, and plugging it back in. Does the optical light actually turn off?

Lately I have been having problems with my Intellimouse wireless
mouse hanging up and the pointer acting sluggish and freezing.
Thinking it could be a driver problem, I uninstalled than reinstalled
it`s software but the problem persists. Battery level is fine and
installing new ones does not help. I recently purchased an 80gb
Maxtor 5000le external hardrive and ran a full backup of my C
drive. Is there some way this could have caused my problem ??
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone.

Starting about last night, my USB Optical Mouse would start freezing for 1-2 seconds randomly. The time increased and eventually it didn't work at all. I put it in another port and it worked fine, and t hen the same thing happened. Eventually I tried all 4 ports at the back and they stopped working on them, however it was working at the first port again for awhile.

However, it is working fine at the front ports; and I am having no problems currently.

I know I should buy a PS/2 mouse, but I would still like to know the problem. Any help?

I've got a Compaq Athlon 500 with four USB ports. Only one of them is being used. I have used the "restore" disk and except for the periphrials, the machine is out of the box new. I haven't installed the drivers for the other periprials.

When I plug the transmitter for the mouse into a USB port, the computer won't boot. It hangs on the "Compaq" screen and won't go any farther. I'm not sure how far into loading that is.

Don I need to remove the old serial mouse, first? Do I need to take this thing back? Thanks

So its wireless? If so there shoudl be a connect button on the receiver that plugs into the computer and a button on the bottom of the mouse, just press both within a second or so of each other to get then sync'd up. Make sure the batteries aren't dead too.

Alright, here's the deal. I have a USB Optical Mouse from Logitech and I run Win XP. Problem: recently, though this has never before, my mouse would stop responding for a moment, the light would go off, and my computer would make that sound win xp makes when you plug in a new hardware. Then it would just work again only to happen again a little while later. This is completely randomly and if I plug the mouse into another port the problem is still there.

Aloha,
I just acquired a laptop and want to install a wireless optical mouse. It comes with a receiver that has to be plugged into the laptop and I don't like that feature. Is that a bluetooth receiver? My laptop came with a built in bluetooth so I was wondering if I could use that or do I have to use the receiver that comes with the mouse (I haven't bought it yet). TIA

Mahalo,

Hi. I'm running Windows XP Pro. I just switched to an LCD monitor and since having done so, my optical mouse has started to be uncooperative. When trying to get to the bottom right of the screen the cursor will often not want to go there; it just keeps jumping back to the middle of the screen. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's always aggravating.

Any suggestions? The LCD monitor may not have anything to do with it. I also moved and when I set the computer up in my new place I replaced the CRT with an LCD and that is when the problems started.

Thanks

A:Optical Mouse problem

Hello theolddog, I agree with with your mouse. I don't like LCD monitors either. Your mouse was cruising on your CRT and having a blast but now you have got it running through the mud. I wouldn't want to work either. LCD monitors IMHO are pretty when nothing is moving on the screen but just move your testy mouse around on the screen and watch that tracer follow behind. Your Old CRT never did that. My only advice is to put your CRT back on your system(if it works) and take the LCD back and get your your money, and wait for the LCD's to improve. But remember this is just my humble opinion.

check for a short in the wires.

Also, did you update the correct driver?

You may also want to turn the option off that automatically shuts down the USB. I am pretty sure it is in the device manager under USB.

What is really the best surface for an optical mouse? And please let's not talk commercially available mouse pads.. let's talk things you find around your house.
I have seen so much conflicting information.. some people say white is good, some people say go black... some people say just use a white piece of letter paper, and many people respond that it doesn't work.

I had a lightly finished solid oak desk and the mouse worked beautifully right on it.. it was like a dream! hehe. But for space/shape reasons (unfortunately as beautiful as that wood was in the desk, everything else about it was pretty bad), I've moved to a particle laminate reddy brown dealie and the mouse goes nuts on it. I think maybe it's something to do with the roughness of the surface and the slight reflectivity could be confusing it?

am using a laptop that is running windows ten both mice were working ok even though the lappy is ten years old and came with windows 7
received the free 10 when offered and no troubles until Friday when I lost a file and attempted a system restore which did not work.
I then went to settings and tried suggestion in there regarding another way .I ran that and now I have another version of 10 with nothing , completely bare , have persevered with it and found it ok --works great---EXCEPT--a few things are missing --the worst is the mice both not working (BUGGA)--only the pad
windows 10 has not got the driver for either and I cant find where I can get a windows 7 one that will let me download to install.
any suggestions on how to get a download of the drivers to install would be very helpful

I use a Dell USB Optical Mouse, M/N M-UVDEL1, with my Dimension 4700.The mousedoesn't seem to be working right. I can't find a CD for the mousethat came with the system, and when I check the Dell site for drivers in the Mouse and Keyboard section,it doesn't list any (for either Mouse or Keyboard). How should I find the driver for the mouse, or alternatively, how do I improve, or repair, the mouse behavior? Thanks.Larry

A:USB Optical Mouse Drivers???

You shouldn't need any drivers for a plain-old 3 button mouse. Windows should handle it fine with the built in drivers. I would try the mouse on another system. It could be broken.(I got a Dell optical mouse from another system, plugged it into this one and it worked fine without any drivers)Peter

Yesterday I came home from work and noticed my optical mouse was moving a bit more slowly. I've since increased the speed in control panel and it seems fine again. But should I have needed to do that? Also ... I've noticed that if I move it very quickly it cannot keep up and just dies in the mddle of the screen.

It stops moving as I'm moving the cursor across the screen, it will automatically highlight text without left clicking, I'll get the scrolling icon when I'm browsing a webpage(using FF) as if I had pressed down on the scrolling wheel.

Does an optical mouse cause an appreciable power drain when used on a motebook computer when running on battery power? If it does what type of mouse is recommended?

A:Optical mouse for laptop

Any mouse you get will consume power. Logic would suggest that a standard mouse would use less power, but I could be wrong.

A wireless/optical may use less power from the laptop because it would have it's own battery.

If you want the battery to last as long as possible use the built in mouse. I find when I travel it's inconvient for me to bring an external mouse anyway. But I have wireless/optical mouse at home and its amazing. And it comes with a dock to recharge the batteries. It's made by Memorex.

My cousin bought me this optical mouse from microsoft, and it had been working fine until a few days ago. Every once in awhile, the laser inside the mouse just shuts off and my mouse stops responding. In order to fix the problem, all I do is go to the back of the computer, unplug/replug the USB connector, and WinXP detects the mouse, and it starts working again. However, doing this 5-7 times a day is really getting on my nerves.

Anyone know how to fix this problem?

I got on Dell on-line tech support and their guy worked on it for over an hour and 3 reboots without success. What is going on? We plugged the mouse in when we took it out of the box and it worked for over a week just fine.
