Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 Issue


I have a microsoft wireless laser mouse 8000. It was made in march 2007, i got it in around 2008 and have been using it every day. Recently it doesn't work much anymore. It will just stop working and putting in a new battery sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Most of the time, even after a new battery has been inserted. I will turn it on, it either will do nothing, or glow green for a few sometimes work sometimes not.

Is it dead and should i have to get a new one? I recently picked up a pack of 8 rechargeable batteries, with a charger.

Laser Mouse 8000 Will Not Charge

I usually carry my laser mouse 8000 around with my notebook since i'm not a big fan of touchpads. I use it until the battery runs out, then i put it back on the charger. Been doing this for months. About a week ago, i pulled it off the charger after letting it sit overnight and when i tried to use it i couldn't get it to work.

I tried a fresh non rechargeable battery and it worked fine, so i tried just recharging it again to no avail. I tried lightly abrading the contacts with some fine grit sandpaper and cleaning with some rubbing alcohol and q tip, but i still cannot get it to charge. Any ideas?

Charging Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000

I recently bought the microsoft mobile memory mouse 8000. Fantastic product. I love it and use it every single day. I don't know how i managed without it. My question is regarding charging via usb. I understand i connect the mouse using the usb trans-receiver and the magnetic cord. This charges the mouse just fine and i can see the battery light pulsating green. My question is, how do i know when the mouse is fully charged? Will the led light stop pulsating?

Ms Wireless Keyboard / Laser Mouse 5000 Intermittent Problem

I have an intermittent problem with my ms wireless keyboard and laser mouse 5000. Windows is not recognizing the receiver in "device manager" and will not allow any updates due to compatibility issues. My ms wireless has worked then when i re-boot, it will not work. I cannot find anything consistent about the problem so i can't troubleshoot the issue.

The only consistent thing is that when the device manager is reading a failure on the receiver, i can change ports and it doesn't change anything. I tried removing the drivers, and installing new drivers but nothing seems to help. What do i do to get win 7 device manager to recognize my wireless keyboard and mouse receiver?

Bsod With Microsoft Wireless Mouse 6000

Microsoft wireless mouse 6000 v2. 0 and keyboard 6000 v3. 0. Every time i start up my windows 7 desktop from shutdown or sleep, about 10 minutes in i get the bsod. It usually happens right about when my wireless keyboard and mouse starts lagging. This also happens when i change usb ports for the wireless transceiver.

After a restart, everything works fine. I did troubleshoot on devices and printers and i also did update drivers. Yet the problem still persists. This is a new windows 7 desktop. The wireless keyboard, mouse, transceiver worked fine with my vista laptop. I am getting concerned and frustrated at this problem. I have attached a photo of the bsod at this link .

64-bit Wireless Desktop 8000 Bluetooth Problem

I am trying to get my bluetooth hardware working with windows 7, 64bit. I use a microsoft wireless entertainment desktop 8000. When i connect the charging station to the pc (via usb) and plug the bluetooth stick into the charging station, mouse and keyboard work fine. The problem is that i cannot connect any other hardware via bluetooth. The device manager does not show me any bluetooth stick, since it was installed as a "generic usb hub" by windows 7. I do not have any drivers for it.

What can i do to make the bluetooth stick work with windows 7? It seems to work on the one hand, since mouse and keyboard work fine, but on the other hand i cannot connect anything else and it is not shown in the device manager.

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

Wireless Mouse

I am having trouble with my recently purchased 'targus' wireless mouse. It was fine till now, but all of a sudden i heard a beep from my laptop (similar one which comes when you plug/unplug something to a usb drive) and it just doesn't work anymore! No lights on the usb receiver which comes along with the mouse anymore!I remember the following things:1. I had installed updates from windows yesterday (but after that as well for couple of hours today it was fine)2. I got an alert for battery level and soon after i plugged in the power source i got the beep and mouse went dead in some moments. These may be irrelevant, but could anyone please help?

Wireless Mouse Does Not Work

I have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 4000 and a microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000. All of a sudden the mouse stopped working. I can see the cursor arrow on the screen but my mouse wont move it. My operating system is vista 64-bit. I have gone through all the diagnostic steps to no avail: replaced the batteries, downloaded the latest software from microsoft, changed usb ports, tried another computer and checked my device manager. The device manager tells me the mouse is working properly. It may be that the mouse is dead but i though before the burial that i would take a chance to see if anyone out there had a similar problem but solved it.

Wireless Usb Mouse On Lenovo T500

I'm about to install win 7 on a new lenovo thinkpad t500. According to a lenovo "windows 7 hints & tips" document: there is no wireless usb software for windows 7. Affected systems: - thinkpad r400 and r500 - thinkpad t61, t61p, t400, and t500 - thinkpad w500, w700, and w700ds - thinkpad x200, x200s, x200 tablet, and x301

Symptom: there is no wireless usb software for windows 7.

Cause: wireless usb devices for the above systems do not support windows 7. I'm not sure what "wireless usb devices" includes, but it sounds as if my microsoft wireless mobile mouse 6000 or wireless mobile mini mouse might not work after i install win 7. I'm also asking lenovo, but does anyone here know if a wireless usb mouse will work with win 7 (a) on any computer or (b) specifically on any of the listed lenovo computers?

Usb Headphones Not Working With Wireless Mouse

Logitech Wireless Mouse Intermittently Stopping

I have a logitech v220 wireless mouse on a hp pavilion dv6 laptop, running windows 7 64 bit, the mouse works fine, except at seemingly random times it just stops working. I then have to uninstall all of my usb drivers, and reboot the computer. It can take up to 3 reboots before the mouse works again. The mouse worked fine in vista on the same machine, the same type of mouse works on my wife's laptop which is the same as mine, except she is running vista 64 bit.

When the wireless mouse stops working, the built in touch pad works fine, but this is a pain, i have never gotten used to using the touch pad. When the mouse stops working, device manager displays unknown device in the usb driver's section. I have updated all of my drivers, both from intel and hp.

Sleep Issue With Mouse And Wireless Card On Usb

I put this toshiba laptop to sleep and incur problems. Win 7 home premium toshiba l455i notice that after i close the top [and induce the sleep] or if manually sleep using the start button, after a minute or so i notice that the mouse led is on, along with the leds for my sprint card.

Watching and listening carefully, i notice that the laptop wakes up, and will beep, an indication that the touchpad has disengaged, noticing that the mouse is plugged in. If i open the laptop, it is standing at the login screen. Why is this?  Why can't i get the thing to sleep. I first noticed this when i started up, and it needed to return from hibernation, with a battery at a low/critical stage.

Wireless Keyboard & Mouse - Share The Usb Key

Wireless keyboard & mouse bought separately, can they share the usb key? I have bought a ms wireless mouse 4000 and am wondering if i can buy the keyboard separately and have them use the same usb key. I only have 3 usb slots, and don't want 2 of them occupied by a mouse & keyboard. Do i need to buy the keyboard & mouse as a single unit? Or can i mix & match ?

Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse Macros

I have a sidewinder mouse, and sometimes, mid-game, a macro will be recorded, and somehow assigned to my right mouse button. As far as i can tell i'm not hitting the macro record button once (let alone twice, so it stops recording), and i'm definitely not going into the mouse properties and assigning that macro to the right button. Can someone tell me how this is happening, since it's getting really annoying, and sometimes very frustrating to fix? I believe it's the sidewinder x6, it's wired, with the adjustable weights and led.

Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse Freezes

I am using a microsoft sidewinder mouse and have encountered a strange problem. Occasionally the mouse will stop working and the usb device unplugged sound will play. This happens most frequently when gaming, but also it occurs during general use. Normally the mouse freezes for about 2-5 seconds, and up to, but never longer than, 10 seconds. The sidewinder has decorative lights, and these stay on most of the time, but during some of the longer freezes they will turn off.

The buttons do not work when the mouse is frozen. The strange thing is that the usb unplugged device sound plays, leading me to think this may be a defective mouse, however i cannot replicate the problem by pushing/pulling/wiggling the mouse's cable. Normally hardware problems can be replicated. The mouse worked fine for the preceding 9-10 months. Drivers are the latest version (7) and i have reinstalled them several times. Usb connectors are spotless. Other mice work flawlessly, but i do not have a second pc to test if the mouse works on a different machine.

Problem With Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse

I'm running windows 7 64-bit pro on a sony vaio f series laptop with a microsoft 5000 bluetooth notebook mouse. Or at least i was. Right after i got the mouse i began having intermittent disconnect problems with it. It would stop working, i would disable it, re-connect it via the bluetooth interface, and we'd be fine for a day or two, then it would stop working again. Sony tech support was no help, suggested i contact microsoft since the mouse was new.microsoft remote-d into my machine but couldn't diagnose the cause, so they sent me a new mouse. That arrived last week, and worked fine for about six days, until this evening, when it totally quit.

I have tried the disconnect - reconnect again, changed the batteries, the bluetooth interface indicates it is there, but it doesn't move the cursor at all. Tried hooking up mouse number one, but same result nothing happening. Any know issues here or any suggestions? I have a webinar presentation coming up wednesday evening and really need the mouse for that.

Microsoft Mobile Mouse 4000 Issue

I recently upgraded to windows 7 professional x64. I am using the latest intellipoint software (driver version 7. 10. 344. 0) and a wireless mobile mouse 4000. The scrolling in outlook calendars is extremely fast, no matter what i set the scroll setting to, even all the way to slowest. It appears to be about 4x the speed of a plug in generic brand usb mouse. It works just fine in ie8 and pdf files, but the scrolling acceleration does not seem to do anything at all even set all the way to the right. I primarily use this computer for cad and cam software and the scrolling in solidworks 2010 is so fast i am not able to use this mouse effectively.
 
Again it appears to be 4x as fast as the generic mouse. The second and most important problem is the very noticeable delay when clicking the middle mouse button, this is not a slight delay it is
About . 5 seconds. This is the primary button for rotating 3d models and at this point i have reverted to a $10 generic mouse to temporarily get the job done. Using mousinfo.exe you can see the delay when clicking the middle mouse button and no delay on the left or right mouse clicks. Keep in mind this hardware worked just fine in xp.

Using mousinfo.exe the "last z value" comes back +30 -30 with the mobile mouse 4000. On the generic mouse it comes back +120 -120 and there is zero delay on middle mouse button. I have reviewed and tried the following troubleshooting procedure from microsoft and i am still not able to resolve the problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/303091

Microsoft Usb Mouse Freezes After Sleep

I've turned off power save on *all* usb ports+hubs+devices. The only way i can remedy the problem is to unplug the mouse from the usb port and plug it back in. The system reports reloading the driver and the mouse works until the next incidence of sleep. Mouse driver dated 6/21/2006, version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 is shown by system to the the most current. I appreciate the power saving, but i really shouldn't have to do this each time. Any help?

Synaptics Touchpad Conflict With Microsoft Mouse

I am having a problem with win 7 and an apparent conflict with the synaptics touchpad. I have a microsoft mouse working so i can use the laptop, but the touchpad won't work. I have tried just about everything from uninstalling both the touchpad and the mouse to a clean install of windows. I have narrowed it down (after several clean installs) to what seems to be a conflict with outlook connector. After the clean install the touchpad has resumed working and then i had to reload all of my programming which is a real pain.

The touch pad seemed to stop working after i downloaded and installed the outlook connector to allow mapi connection to my msn.com emails. I can not keep up the clean install process (done at least 3 times). I have downloaded the synaptics driver direct from the company without a fix. Gateway says keep doing a clean install which is ludicrous. The touchpad driver says it is working properly with no conflicts even though it does not work. I believe that this is a windows 7 problem. Any further ideas would be appreciated. By the way once the synaptics touchpad stops working nothing short of a clean install will fix the problem, so i have a choice no outlook or no touchpad.

Microsoft Virtual Wireless Adapter

I have a dell vostro 1400 notebook with a broadcom wlan 1390 installed. Recently, i have upgraded the wlan driver to version 5. 60. 18 using the upgrade provided by dell bearing id no r242438. After the upgrade, i have confronted the following problem. The name of the adapter has changed in programs like stopcut and netcut. In other words, when i try to access the drop list to choose the name of my network adapter, i find the name of my ethernet adapter mentioned correctly, microsoft virtual adapter mentioned correctly, while my wireless adapter is labeled as microsoft instead of dwlan 1390 as it used to display before.

The adapter is displayed with its right label (dwlan 1390) in the device manager and in the adapters list in the network connections window. However, whenever i use a third party application to access my adapters list, the label i got for my wireless adapter is microsoft and not dwlan 1390. I rolled back to my old driver and i get the same result.

How To Remove Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Detection Driver ?

Ok i have a common problem with booting my pc under windows 7 64bit. It was all fine booting rapidly for the last month or so that i've had it installed. Then it started to freeze for several minutes (anything between 5 mins and about 10 mins) during boot time at the loading windows screen.

I have since then tried the various things to get it to boot normally again, including tings which should theoretically not affect it as they've all been there before this problem started and booting fine, this includes:

Looking at recent hardware changes such as hd's i've added. Changing the sata drives about (i've got 3) getting boot under msconfig to use the max cores (it's a quad core) & memory (4gb). Looking at the bootlog files (nothing leaps out other than i'm apparently trying to load a couple of the drivers twice - i've listed this mornings bootlog at the bottom of this message for reference). Recovering to a point about a month ago before the problems started in the hope that this will uninstall newer drivers that might be the problem, and this is where i noticed what i think might be the cause as this seems like the point it went wrong.

I had added a microsoft mouse and keyboard and the wu offered an optional update of:

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

After installing this i'm pretty certain that the boot slowed right down, so i've tried to uninstall it. Only i can't find a way of doing so. As when i do a system restore to a point prior to the driver installing and the problem occurring, it does not ditch the driver, just seems to keep it. I then uninstalled intellipoint for mouse and keyboard and re-installed standard ps2 mouse. At the same time i removed my microsoft wireless usb keyboard & mouse, all with no effect. I restored my system back to current again and i'm coming back to what i think the problem is which is the.

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

But with no obvious way or removing it, i can't confirm that. Other notable points: during the boot the hd access is constant so it's working like crazy. The keyboard will be unresponsive to things like capslock or numlock though for the first half of the wait the numlock light is on and for the second half of the wait the numlock light is off. I think my default setting is for numlock off.
