View Full Version : Having problems with my mouse.

2009-05-31, 07:38 AM
Ok so for some reason, my computer mouse randomly thinks I'm holding the mouse button down even when by fingers are nowhere near the buttons. Its a fairly new optical mouse so it couldn't be wear. Any ideas on what may be wrong and how I can fix it? Anybody? I'm stumped.

You probably have already, but try cleaning the connectors, and if it's a USB mouse, try plugging it into a different port. You'd be surprised how many problems that fixes.

Try holding down the relevant button and using alt-tab to switch your active windows.
That worked for me in the past when it appeared that a keyboard key was being held down when it wasn't, and I can only assume it would also work with a similar problem with a mouse.

Ok... This is a basic question but I will ask it anyway... Have you tried with other mouse? Are you sure it's a software problem?

Give it more food and change the wood shavings.

seconding the "try a different slot" option. there is a reason they give you a million usb's.

try googling the mouse, maybe someone had a similar problem.
