    12oz tech support..what's wrong with my mouse?

    Discussion started by japillahan - Jul 22, 2004

    its works allright(most of the time) but sometimes it clicks and selects things even if i havent clicked. sometimes it just jumps around the screen. is this a problem that needs to be fixed or do i need to replace this hardware? thank you

    I don't know about the clicks random things part, but my mouse used to jump around randomly. I am assuming your mouse is optical like mine. Get yourself a mouse pad (the reason mine was jumping around was because it didn't have a mouse pad).






    I guess. If not just buy a new mouse.

    if its the kind of mouse with the ball underneath it, then take the ball out, and clean the insides with a toothpick or something. if it isn't that kind of mouse, then THROW THAT ONE AWAY, AND BUY A NEW MOUSE. spend the 12 bucks man!

    You gotta change it's waterbottle every once in a while even if it doesn't drink all the water, because germs can start to grow in the bottle. Also, try feeding it some alfalfa every once in a a while as a treat.

    hacked? dont think so
    cordless? no
    optical=no

    regular mouse. it dosent randomly click on things per ce, but if im moving it across the screen or over buttons it either right or left clicks them, sometimes twice.

    as for the 12 dollars, finding a mouse in this country is a challenge enough, i dont live in a city where they sell them either. plus, finding one under 30 dollars is almost impossible, even the basic generic ones. i guess ill break down to buy a new one if i absolutely have to i just want to know if theres a way to fixit.

    ...i dont know this is actually kinda cool
