I'm having some serious mouse issues. First off, I use the Logitech cordless mouse and keyboard (S510 / Y-RAK73), which has been very reliable
in the few years I have owned it. But recently my mouse has been exhibiting strange behavior. Frequently it will not detect my mouse clicks, so
I often have to click a link two or three times before it goes through. It does this in both my internet browser any everywhere else a link or
button needs to be clicked. On the internet sometimes a click will create a "ghost" image of the link or button in question and then follow
wherever I move my mouse. I then have to hit ESC to get rid of it, then retry clicking the link/button. The "ghosting" only occurs online. Also,
sometimes the mouse won't want to move and will become jumpy, herky-jerky on the screen. I've made sure that there are fresh batteries in the
mouse, that the connection is good, even went as far as making the USB dongle closer to it, used different ports and made sure that the USB
connection itself isn't physically loose. I've gone through all the mouse settings and nothing seems to cure it. I cannot say that this issue is
continual and persistent; it just happens more often than not.

Anyone out there that may be able to help on this?

Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

I suggest you contact Logitech. But bottom line, mice die.

If you want to make sure, connect a wired mouse and see if it works properly.
