Is there anyway to access the oboard memory on a mouse? I want to backup the firmware that is installed on my Asus Gladius.

The firmware is not installed in the mouse.  It is found in the Device Manager under Mice and other pointing devices.

Unless the driver is corrupt you don't need to do anything.  If there is firmware which was installed you should have a disc which came with the mouse, this is where the firmware came from.  Open the device manager, click on the diamond to the left of Mice and other pointing devices.  You should see your mouse there.  Double click on your mouse, then click on the Driver tab.  You should see the driver provider and the driver version.
