    Default mouse trouble

    Hi guys

    I have a logitech performance mouse MX, and i've been really happy with it, i've had for about 6 months. However it's movement are starting to get jerky and uneven sometimes. i've tried cleaning the mouse, discharge the capacitors in it and get the reciever closer to the mouse, but none of it seems to work As far as i can read online, there are several people who experience this.

    You guys have any ideas what might help this?

    no it's a wireless, but it came with an extender cable for the reciever, so i tried getting the reciever closer to the mouse, but that didn't help at all.

    Yeah, I was being silly. I know it's wireless and was suggesting a corded mouse.

    I assume that you have new batteries in all parts of it?
    Optical sensors are cleaned with some (very little) Windex and a Q-Tip?

    Default Re: mouse trouble

    I've gone through several wireless mice and keyboards over the last few years.
    All of them are sitting up on a shelf because they were never up to snuff with my needs. They suffered with BS problems far too often for me to continue with them.

    Get a good wired mouse and be done with it. That's my best advice.

    Good luck with it.

    Gettin' old and memory not so good any more ... but did you update your mouse driver/software from Logitech within recent months? Thought I read that they issued a new version that is/was flakey under Windows 8, which I see by your spec's that you have. So my suggestion, which may not prove to help, is to fall back to a version from 2012 or so, to see how that performs, just as a test. I still use a rather ancient SetPoint 4.80 for my Anywhere MXs because new versions lost me a feature or two that I wanted. Have had nothing but wireless mice from Logitech for many years (currently have 2x Anywhere MX and 1x G602) - Logitech mice do go squirrely after a while, some all too soon, some stay good for many years.

    yes i did install the newest driver a few weeks back, might try the old driver then. The weirdest thing about it, is that when i get so i annoyed i almost throw the damn thing though the wall, i shake it in frustration, and it seems to help. At least for a few minutes.

    Default Re: mouse trouble

    Well, it is a little known fact that they added a new AI module to the underlying driver earlier this year. If it senses that the unit is being moved uncommonly fast (i.e. the optical pickup detects fast traversals with no hard surface closeby), the mouse will briefly start behaving properly just as you start to do something drastic ... the idea being to hopefully stop you from slamming it down on a desktop in a fit of rage or hurling it out across the room to impact fatally against a far wall. Clever folks, those Logitech engineers.

    i seem to have solved the problem by moving the wireless antenna from my motherboard's wifi further away from the mouse's reciever. Anyone ever heard of a wireless mouse/keyboard getting interference from wifi? i know they're both 2.4GHz, but i've never experienced that before...
