How to Troubleshoot Your Computer's Mouse

The Motherboard is the largest component in your PC and the Central Processing Unit is its brain. But when your input devices go on the blink, you're shut down for awhile. When Computer Mice problems come, we don't panic as fast when we cannot access our hard drive.

When you grab your Mouse and either click or roll the buttons and nothing happens, your computing fun stops. Even though the mouse is a little input device, you will wish you understood its every aspect when it dies.

When input device failure occurs, the problem may lie with the computer's hardware, the mouse, the OS or Operating System. Let's take a look at what you should check when mouse failure occurs.

When the mouse dies, you should be able to perform the same functions with the keyboard. It may be a little closer but you won't be shut down completely.

No Mouse Movement

First... If the mouse has no movement, first look at the mouse connection at the rear of the computer. Be sure it is plugged in completely. Second... remove the plug and inspect for connectors or pins that may be broken or bent. The connector is color coded with green being that of the mouse. If your mouse uses the USB or Universal Serial Bus connector, check the connectors for any damage and be sure it is plugged in.

Mouse Stopped During Operation

Should your mouse quit in the middle of computing, save your work immediately. Press the ALT key to access your program and save your work. Check the connection in the rear to be sure it has not worked itself loose. If the connection is tight, inspect the mouse components for dirt.

Remove the retain and trackball inside the mouse. Clean the Ball with a mild solution and be sure all residence is removed. And clean the Ball Cavity with a cotton swab. Replace the ball and secure it with the retainer.

Connect the mouse to the system unit and boot the the computer. Try clicking a program to see if the mouse works. If the mouse fails, check the device driver for the mouse.

Mouse Pointer Misbehaving

This problem may be the result of your computer be affected by a virus. Use your Anti Virus software to scan your system for viruses. You can go to www.free-av.com to download a free version of anti virus software if you don't have anti virus software installed on your system.
