Preferred Solution: Microsoft Mouse and Trackball cables compatible?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Go ahead and try the cable... I hope the wire color codes are the same. I use a wireless Logitech. Maybe it's time for you to switch to a wireless mouse

sorry if this is wrong fourm, i dunno where to post

what do you all advise to do to clean my trackball mouse? what mothods, such as cotton swab, blowing it out, etc?

my mouse seems to get stuck when i move up and down

A:trackball mouse

I clean mine with rubbing alcohol and q-tips. Make sure the computer is off and when you take the ball out there are about three different little contacts that need cleaning. make sure it is dry before you start using it again. When it sticks it does need cleaning.

Has any one any views on trackball type mice. I seem to be having great difficulty in accurately pointing with " conventional" mouse. I was wondering if one of the types with a thumb opperated ball could be the answer. Its difficult to make a decision
when the stores don't have them on demo.
BTW-I have cleaned my mouse's ball.

Any comments appreciated.



A:{RESOLVED}Mouse vs Trackball

I'd recommend an optical mouse. They're very accurate, and there's no ball or rollors or mechanical parts that can fail. Trackballs function very differently, and it's all about personal preference. Someone can't tell you what works best, you need to decide for yourself.

Hello everyone, I have a Microsoft cordless optical mouse (the leather one) and would like to add a trackball as well because my right shoulder is injured.
The question is; can the mouse and trackball be installed on the same computer without problems?
The trackball is a corded Logitech Marble mouse with a trackball on top. The Microsoft cordless mouse is plugged into a PS/2 port and I wish to plug the corded Marble mouse into a USB port on the front of the tower.
The Microsoft mouse has its own software installed.
Would this setup be OK?

I have a Microsoft Trackball USB mouse that I've been using on my new laptop for about 2 months with no problems.  All of a sudden yesterday, the mouse just shuts off.  I have to unplug it & plug it back it to get it working again.  Sometimes
it will keep working for hours sometimes it will shut off in seconds.  I've uninstalled the mouse & HID drivers & re-installed them but the problem still persists.  I've also tried different USB ports & it still does the same thing.  Anybody
know why my mouse all of a sudden has gone crazy??
Thanks in advance,

It should be a hardware issue, but not related to Windows 7.
I think you may check if your battery in the mouse still have enough power.

I installed Win8 on a separate drive to give it a test run and to see what it is all about.
So far I'm still undecided and neutral about it.
There is one problem I can't find a solution for.

When I boot into Win8, the scroll wheel on my MS trackball scrolls 20 lines for each click, that is too much.
So I enter the settings and adjust it to 10 lines per click, apply it and all is good until the next reboot.
It seems to revert back to 20 lines per click every time I reboot.
Any ideas?

all of a sudden my trusty trackball mouse is not being so trusty. Sometimes it gets stuck down in the taskbar...sometimes it slows to a crawl or just stops responding all together.

I'm running Windows 7 (64) with 12Gb of RAM: Everything is working great - except the MS Trackball Explorer. It works in it's standard button configuration but when I try to customize the buttons for different functions - It accepts the changes in the MS IntellIpoint software - but the hardware doesn't respond to the remapped buttons.

Running the Mouseinfo Utility shows the buttons are working correctly, and I have taken this same trackball to my XP system - and the remapping works fine.

This leads me to assume that the IntellIpoint software that Microsoft has released for Windows 7 is flawed.

Anyone have any experience or solutions? I have sent MS a trouble report but I'm not holding out a lot of hope.

Personally I have never wormed up to the trackballs, but I can tell you that my Revolution MX is very comfortable and at the beginning was incredibly precise but after a while it started glitching unofrtunetly I bought it in the us and I can't get a guarantee over here:-(
All i can tell you is that when the mouse was in perfect shape it worked great on various surfaces. soemtimes I would watch movies from my bed which is about 3-4 meters from the computer and on the nonsmooth drapes (Not even straight) it would still work perfectly.

I'm getting the "Disk Boot Failure Insert System Disk and Press Enter" message and it's not detecting any drives - either on startup of through the bios. I'm wondering if the ide's from the Celeron Board are compatible with this new board (as they are the ones I'm currently using) - would that stop the bios from detecting the drives - if not, what's next?

Tried this on XP SP2, XP SP3 and Vista Ultimate.

This trackball installs fine with or without Intellipoint software (tried multiple versions including latest) but the ball itself fails to move the mouse pointer at all. The buttons and scroll wheel works fine, but not the pointer.

I've searched extensively on and generally on Google without seeing a hint of this problem.

BTW, I have a second trackball (both are model D67-00001) that is doing the very same thing on all three computers. I am completely out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Lately I have been having an annoying problem with my wireless mouse. For some reason the pointer will lag, and be very sluggish and jumpy. I've had this mouse on this computer for about a year and I've had no problem. Out of nowhere this problem is happening. I've tried re installing drivers with no luck. I tried uninstalling intellipoint and re-installing it, but when I tried I got the BSOD, and then it completely disabled my mouse and keyboard so I had to use wired peripherals to go in to safe mode and do a system restore. Now everything is working again, except my mouse is still jumpy.

Thanks for any help.

A:Annoying mouse lag - Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500

Erratic behaviour from wireless peripherals, especially keyboards and/or mice, particularly where they were working correctly before, generally points to a dying battery in the peripheral. Have you tried replacing it? If it is rechargeable, it may no longer be holding charge and will also need replacing.

I have my PC ran to a monitor and a 55 inch Samsung LED LCD TV for watching movies etc. The problem is, the HDMI cord is run threw the wall so the PC is in another room so I cant use the normal mouse on the PC. I bought a bluetooth mouse due to the increased range but I'm having nothing but issues.

I have the Microsoft Bluetooth dongle btw, didn't come with the mouse, the mouse actually comes with no dongle.

Anyway it connects fine but if I stop using it for like an hour or whatever it disconnects and nothing I do will reconnect it unless I take my other mouse, go into bluetooth devices, delete it and readd it all over again.

WHY THE HELL does it keep doing this lol?

It's very annoying, I sit down to watch a movie and discover I cant start it without first going into the other room and readding my mouse.

I'm well within range and I've tried moving the bluetooth mouse to the same room as the PC to use it with the PC and it still does the same thing.


It's your dongle. I have the same mouse and it works absolutely fine. I'll bet you have the USB option set to power the dongle down when unused. How's the radio in the mouse supposed to wake up a sleeping dongle?

Hi Alona,
If you receive Windows Update error 80070103 while installing updates, you might be trying to install a driver that is already installed on your computer or a driver that might be less compatible than one you already have installed.

So, if you did not encounter any performance issue about mouse and keyboard before, you can hide these updates and don't install them again.

I've just upgraded both my computers to Windows 8. On the laptop it's great, but on the HTPC my input device is showing it's limits.

I have a Logitech k400, which i like because it's a one piece keyboard with built in trackpad. the problem is that the trackpad is crap. it doesn't support any multitouch scrolling is done in the firmware and is... erratic and imprecise.
The closest equivalment would be an apple keyboard and trackpad hooked together by this thing: Twelve South MagicWand - Apple Store (Canada)
Problem is, I don't think the drivers will support advanced features like edge swiping, like synaptics trackpads will once the new driver rolls out.

Is it possible to use synaptics drivers? because that would solve my problems.

Hi, I run a Windows XP Media Center Edition (2005 Version), and recently purchaced the Microsoft Office Small Business Suite upgrade version for this computer. Because it is MCE, I cannot access my work domain network (MCE blocks this application). Kind of defeats the purpose of having the suite, I wanted to link my Full Outlook version to my Web Access version. Anyway, my question is, if I purchased a new computer with a Vista operating system, would the office suite I've already purchased work?

A:Solved: Microsoft office suite compatible with vista?

Office 2003 is supposed to work with vista if that is your version.
You would need the original install disk along with the upgrade disk.
The upgrade is not a stand alone product and can't be used for
a cean installation.
Have you checked your firewall to make sure the needed ports aren't blocked
or possibly looked into setting up VPN to login?

I think this is the culprit causing my problems. Now both my mousepad on my laptop and my mouse are active at the same time and I am unable to uninstall or turn off the mousepad. I've tried uninstall two different ways and neither worked after restarting and shutting down as per instructions. It is driving me crazy because it is extremely hard to type as the cursor will jump on the page and insert my typed letters into the wrong place. I have to get it uninstalled! Typing this is a nightmare and I am not dragging my thumbs on the pad or touching it in anyway. Any suggestions?

So here's the issue. I've searched through the forum, and I've posted elsewhere, no resolve for my issue though. Maybe some new insights? Cause I'm going crazy.

I have a Dell Inspiron (all details in my profile) and I actually spent about an hour and 1/2 with Dell itself on the phone. They seem to be less technically adept than myself, so whatever.

I keep getting a "USB Device not Recognized" error. I have a Logitech Thumb trackball, and said trackball has zero issues on any other computer. I got this computer as a christmas present and it's been happening ever since. I'm running Windows 7 premium home, 64 bit, and frankly I'm going batty. EVERY time this happens I have to shut down my computer, unplug it, and take out the battery, wait a minute and then put it back together. It's quite the hassle when I'm trying to do my homework. I've updated drivers, there's zero hardware issues, I even DL a supposed fix (that I got the link for here) and zip, zero, zilch, nada. I don't have a disk for Windows 7 as it came installed on the laptop, I have a 2 year warranty with Dell, but frankly it's been happening since day one, so what would a re-install do for me? I'm so friggin frustrated it's unreal. It's hard to do college math when you have to shut down and restart your computer every 20 minutes.

Please, someone, anyone, help me out here. I'm half tempted to just say screw windows 7 and install my XP. I've had to shut the bubble telling me that what isn't plugged in anymore isn't recognized..ARGH please help.

Here is a link I found while searching for a solution to getting my trackball explorer to work with Windows 7. Haven't tried it because I found out that my IMac "magic mouse" works for windoes 7 for me. I am running win 7 on my IMac through VMFusion3 and the trackball would work perfectly under the IMac OS system but when I switched to Windows 7 it would not work. I eventually went with the magic mouse because I could not even get a right-click button to work with the trackball and right-clicking is a function of using the compatibility mode mentioned in the text in this link. Good luck.

You can use Autohotkey to remap a keyboard key to some mouse button :

Don't know about your other question, I've never heard of a program that would do that. You could use the keyboard if you want to go faster : the arrows or the tab key will allow you to select a given button, pressing enter will perform the action, pressing esc will cancel and pressing alt will underline the keyboard shortcut for the other buttons.

I just purchased a MS Trackball Optical mouse. I was using a Logitech optical trackball. I was expecting this to be very smooth but it not (the cursor movement on the screen). The cursor movement is much less smoother. Something must be wrong. I notice that if I remove the IntelliPoint software (ver. 3.2) the cursor motion gets better (more smooth).
Has anyone had this similar problem? Has anyone fixed the problem. I like the additional buttons this mouse gives me but it's not worth it if I'm going to have to settle for choppy motion.

I'm starting to think it is a Windows 7 issue. I just did a clean install of Windows 7 on Tuesday (June 29th), and until yesterday, it worked fine, and it also worked fine before i clean installed. I think it is a Windows 7 issue, because my webcam resets about every 1-5 minutes, even though the software for it is installed, as is its driver. But, when i installed Windows 7 on Tuesday, i did not install IntelliPoint. I did this last night and it fixed my problem. It has worked since then, all the way up to about 45 minutes ago. At first, it starts disconnecting for a split second, maybe every two minutes, but it quickly escalates to it going off for 10 seconds every time i touch it.

I really need help because i need to have a mouse! Any help at all is appreciated!

I think you are right about it being 7 and not just the mouse since it affects your webcam.

Hi all! First post to ask for help

My problem is with this Microsoft Habu Laser mouse. Almost every time I RESTART my computer and get to the desktop my mouse does not respond even the "restart button" at the bottom of the mouse does not help, all I can do is unplug the mouse and plug it back in and it works. This happens also sometimes when computer has been powered down for a while, not always but sometimes.

I even changed this mouse to new one when it had warranty left, but now it's over and not an option anymore.

It does not make a change if I install the Habu drivers and software from the CD or Microsoft's web page.

Is the problem in the mouse or is it some kind of a problem with my computer?

Thank you in advance !

A:Microsoft cordless mouse

Welcome to TSG!
If the batteries were dead, or out too long, the mouse will forget the channel it was using, and you just need to let them search again.
There should be a button on the transmitter (part connected to the PC) and another button on the Mouse (may be marked connect).
Press the button on the transmitter, then press the button on the mouse (you have 10-30 seconds to press the mouse button).
You might just need to press the button on the Mouse, so I'd try that first.

They will then scan the radio frequencies they use until they find each other and agree on what channel to use.

Hi, my girlfriend bout a Microsoft wireless mouse: Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000.
She seemed to like the mouse, and used it for about two weeks for her desktop.
One day, she called me crying, saying she burned her hand by the "melted" mouse receiver. So I went down to her room and saw the receiver all melted down on her HP desktop. I had to pull out the metal part of usb receiver by tweezers.
I am so mad! How can this happen? Seems like short circuit or something... I want to even sue microsoft .. at least to get a refund or replacement. Can anybody tell me what I should do? Thank you, Jeff

A:Microsoft Mouse Meltdown!

"Get on the horn to MS and let them hear about it!" would be one answer. Another if you have the receipt is return for refund at the store it purchased from. Obviously it was due to a manufacturer's defect that got out.

Typically MS is a software company where other companies are under contracts to manufacture the hardwares they sell. Aparently some QC slipped up and missed that one!

It's a shame seeing that one since generally their hard wired models are durable as well as the keyboards. I would advise trying to get the refund if not exchange for it however.

A:Microsoft mouse stops Win 7 booting

Have you tried uninstalling all the drivers you downloaded and removing all the drivers in Device Manager?

Maybe the generic drivers will work better.

Hope this helps,

Hello. Can anyone help me? I also have a Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical. But now it's been having some problems recently. The red light inside keeps turning on and off mysteriously and I suddenly can't move the mouse pointer anymore until it turns on again. It does very frequently now. Does this mean that the optical mouse has already gone bad and I have to replace it with another one or is there a way I fix it? I tried installing the Intellipoint CD Software but that still didn't work. I plugged it into the PS/2 Port even though it is also USB compatible. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Just got a MS Habu mouse, as I wanted a razor tech mouse, but the MS one feels wonderful. I have put it into Vista, with all software, updated to latest driver, and installed the firmware update. The problem? Damn Vista wont recognise it. If I go to mouse in control panel, it shows nothing... I get awarning panel telling me I wont get full benefit until I installan MS mouse, when I get to the the mouse bit, it tells me I have a wireless 5000... doesnt even LIST a habu.
Any ideas how to fix this? I spend good money on a MS product, and it dont work.. damn you microsoft, damn you!!

Oh.. I checked th eMS site, under drivers for habu, they apparently dont have one, not even listed.
And yes, I AM teed off

Hi, I have Vista Home Pemium. I installed a Natural Wireless Laser 6000 mouse and Intellipoint 6.1. The mouse function is very erratic - it works well sometmes and other times you have to click a few times to get any response. Very frustrating.

Any solutions will be very welcome.


A:Microsoft Mouse/Vista/Intellipoint

First, because it is easy, check Device Manager and see if there are any flagged devices. Make sure to check "show hidden devices". Report any flags here.

If no flags, then you need to find out if this is hardware or software. The mouse could be bad, or there could be a problem with the software. Uninstall the software. The mouse should function as a basic PS/2 mouse without the software. I have a Logitech G7 (high-end gaming mouse) and I didn't bother to install the Logitech software. Works just fine.

Try using the mouse (with no software installed) on another computer. If the problem moves with the mouse, it's hardware. If not, software.

I have two identical monitors for one computer running Vista with two identical graphics cards. My arrow indicator jumps to the wrong monitor screen and is hard to return to the intended original monitor. Can the Microsoft Programmable Mouse, or other mouse, be programed with arrow indicator to left monitor/arrow indicator to right monitor switch? How? I have a Dell mouse now.

Hi and welcome to Vista Forums!

Can you tell us which graphics cards and how you have connected the monitors?

When my Windows 98 Second Edtion starts in the "Safe Mode", my Logitech mouse (First mouse,3 button) is driven by the Microsoft device driver. Can this driver be used to drive the mouse even in the normal mode by replacing the Logitech device drivers with it therein?

If yes, then can you please tell me the location and the file-name of the Microsoft device driver and how to replace the Logitech one with it?

Thank you.

A:Microsoft device driver for mouse

You could just go to control panel and delete the drivers from the mouse then reboot to see if windows will pick it up and install its own drivers. You will need the cd for 98 and that is no guarantee that the drivers are even on it.

I have just bought the HP pavilion and a microsoft bluetood arc mouse. Love the mouse BUT it keeps turning off and you have to turn on and off to get it to work again. I have searched for answers with most saying it is a power saving option however there is no option on the mouse for power saving selection. If anyone could this would be great otherwise its going back to the shop.

Is it unusual for a 3 month old wireless mouse to quit working?

I tried three different batteries and the light on the bottom still doesn't light up.

We hooked my son's mouse up and it works so I know it is not the pc.

I have already purchased another one as I didn't feel like going through the trouble of trying to return it to MS all for $39.99.

Hey guys Most of you might 8/8.1 this? Windows adressing Is lag. mouse Microsoft have heard about the mouse 'lag' that was introduced with Microsoft's new OS According to some analysts the lag Windows 8/8.1 mouse lag. Is Microsoft adressing this? is described as 'negative acceleration' This weird and unpredictable acceleration curve of the mouse makes it pretty much impossible to work with with the mouse as fast and as accurate as you would be used to on previous OS'es let alone play games at the same level There are several articles on the web concerning this Here are a few Windows introduces mouse lag that renders some games unplayable Games Geek com mouse lag in video games since updating to win - Microsoft Community Seeing as there are some MVP members on here i was wondering if any of you would happen to know if this issue is actually being adressed by Microsoft at the moment I know when i was MVP myself at my previous employee i did have some strings to pull with local microsoft contacts employees just to find out stuff like this but sadly for me i work for a different employer these days in a different sector so this is no longer the case for me

A:Windows 8/8.1 mouse lag. Is Microsoft adressing this?

You can shut it off - This issue came up recently, it has to be shut off from "PC Settings" but I forget exactly where.

Same thing, the guy could not press any keys while mouse was clicked. I'll dig it up and try to get the procedure to shut it off.

I have come upon a problem wherein my Microsoft Wireless MultiMedia Keyboard 1.1 (P/N
X801524-100) will not type (or for that matter, continue to register a button press) while I am moving any mouse. Note that the mouse need not be the Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 (P/N X806939-007) that came with it.

The same issue does not occur with the manufacturer-supplied PS/2 keyboard when used in conjunction with any of my mice.

The issue occurs on Windows Server 2008 R2 (obtained from DreamSpark), with IntelliType and IntelliPoint software/driver suits installed, and on Windows Vista, where the mouse/keyboard are merely recognized as HID-compliant mouse/keyboard.

This issue is driving me crazy, as I can not play any of my games (obviously) as they often require me to move my mouse and keyboard at the same time.

Thanks in advance for any help - if you need additional information, ask and I will add it.

I got the Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse. Every 5 minutes it lags and the lagging lasts for 20 secs, which is annoying as hell. How do I fix this?

A:Microsoft Mouse Lags every 5 Minutes - How Do I Fix It?

Is it only that mouse? Are you using a mouse pad? Have you tried a different USB port?
