    my cordless mouse is acting oddly...taken on a life of its own...okay dont laugh....at points the mouse seems heavier...i know that is not possible but i swear it does....it will not work.. it is slow and hard to move....the batteries are fine...if i pick it up and shake it...it will improve for a bit then goes back to being weird...

    so now please solve my problem now that you have the extensive scientifc describtion of the problem....lol...i swear it seems heavier at times...sluggish and heavy

    It's prolly your surface. You need something dry, slippery, and has enough visual texture so the laser can track properly.

    Microthin.com

    $10 at Staples. I've used mine for about a year, and bought my son one about a month ago. He's a typical teenager, so Dad doesn't do much right, but he actually thanked me.

    Um, I have a cordless mouse.

    When it acts like what you are saying, it's time for new batteries!


    (Though you say the batteries are fine....try another set and see)

    Yeah, the first time my mouse ever did that I went and bought a new one. It did the same thing after about a week or two. New pad and good to go. Lucky thing too, I was about to give those mice to the cat to play with. :lol:

    I've had one actually blow up in my hand before. It was a Microsoft. It made a little "pop" like a cap gun, and left burn marks on my old mouse pad. :lol:
