Mouse letting up when dragging?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, i have a "gaming mouse" that i got off eBay and it seems to be alright but i have noticed when dragging things in like 3D modeling programs that it just let up and either stop dragging the object or click on an object in the background. Also when i drag windows on my desktop it will sometimes just stop even when i have my finger firmly pressed on the button. I dont know if its because of the mouse or a software issue.  Anyone have any ideas to solve this phenomenon?

 

Thanks!

Have you tried using the same software with a different mouse and see if the problem still happens?

Yea the problem is specific to that mouse

Probably a problem when holding down the button of the mouse for a long time. As @lttUser1234 already suggested, have you tried other scenario’s/other programs as well?

 

How old is the mouse?

a month or 2 old

And you only have this issue when holding down the mouse button for an extended period of time?

I’m affraid that this is a hardware problem.  As a last resort in trying to fix it, you prrhaps consider disassembling the mouse and cleaning the buttons on the inside. Although, I doubt that this will have  any effect.

 

I assume that you bought an ‘el cheapo’ “gaming” mouse? Is there a manufacturer’s website where you can download the latent drivers? (Most of the time, those mice are simply “plug and play” devices.)

If so, download and install the latest drivers.
