I bought a new mouse thinking that this will resolve the problem as well, but it did'nt. My mouse stops working at least once a day. Here's the weird part... everytime it stops working, I have to go into device manager(I have my mouse controls set up on my keyboard so I can still have control of my mouse pointer when my mouse do decide to go out)and click on the mouse and other pointing device tab, then update the driver. Once the driver has been updated, I then have to close the "your driver has been updated" window and then I have to close the "update driver window", and then I'm asked if I would like to restart my computer. I have to always select no. I then have to restart the computer on my own by going into the start menu and restarting it manually. Once my computer restarts, the mouse is working again, until it goes out again.
But if I don't select no at the "do you want to restart your computer" screen(right after I close the "your driver have been updated" screen)and I choose yes, my computer will shut down but once it restarts, my mouse is still not working. It's crazy. I have tried everything. Sometimes my keyboard will stop working as well, although it rarely happens, but sometimes it does. Also, if I unplug the mouse from the computer, then plug it back in,then restart my pc, the mouse will be working again. The red light underneath my mouse was gone before I unplugged it from my pc, but once I plugged it back in, the red light returned. I only tried this once but I didn't have to update the driver like I usaully have to do.
Any advice on what to do? I have a acer computer with windows 7 but Vista came with the computer when I bought it. I have a optical mouse from microinv. My first mouse was a mouse that had the ball underneath it but I can't remember the name but i had the same problem with that one as well, which is the reason why I bought the new one.
Also, my mouse be doing some crazy things. Sometimes it will go off screen and then my browser will click back to the previous window(it done this while I was typing this and i had to start all over). Or options will show up on the screen as if I pressed the right click button when I did'nt. It will also click on links by itself as well. As long as I'm moving the mouse, random stuff will happen. The pointer will also freeze or stop working for a few seconds before it starts working again. I just don't know what to do. Please help.
