Mouse Problem

by redryder12 / August 8, 2005 2:30 AM PDT

I use Windows XP operating system. I have a Microsoft Intellipoint 4 Cordless Mouse. Lately, on occasion,my mouse frezzes. The light on the base that plugs into the computer goes out. I unplug the mouse from the computer and replug it and it starts working just fine. No great problem, but annoying

cordless mice, however, it used to be that the issues weren't usually with the mouse as much as it was a problem with old or corrupt video card drivers instead.

First go to the mouse maker's site and see if there is a newer driver available for it, and if so, install that and reboot to test it. Then go to the video card maker's site and get the latest video card drivers for it, and install them, and reboot to see if that has fixed it instead.

check your batteries. I use wireless on all my systems (6) and when I have mouse problems, 9 out of 10 times it's the batteries.
