I appreciate the replies so here are my responses so far
Check to see if you have the latest driver for it.
I checked, it said I had the most up to date driver.
Check to see if there is software specifically for your model of mouse and download and install it to your new PC. Be sure to check the settings once you do.
When I plugged it in it does what wireless mouse normally do, it seemed to install the software from the dongle. I checked the drivers, and they are up to date.
Static electricity. The charge builds up and everything goes bonkers.
I don’t know a lot about electronics, but wouldn’t the power cord which has a grounding plug take care of that? The wireless mouse works fine on my other laptops.
This is really weird, but on all my laptops (Lenovo, HP, and Dell), my wireless dongle will only work if it’s plugged in a USB (2.0 & 3.0) on the right-hand side of the laptop. My emergency back-up corded mouse will work whichever side it’s plugged in on.
my laptop has 2 ports, its equally bad on both sadly.
Do you use Firefox?
I’ve tried chrome, firefox and opera. The mouse issues seem to be a little worse on chrome vs the other two, but it is still having trouble on the other 2 browsers.
Soooooooooooooooooooooo…for shits and giggles (I should’ve done this earlier and I only did it now while writing this post) I just took the wireless mouse out of my work laptop and hooked it up to my personal laptop. It seems to be working quite a bit better. Maybe I just have an old, out of date wireless mouse.
FWIW, the mouse I was using when I wrote this original thread post is one of those wireless mouse/keyboard combos, my work mouse is just a mouse by itself. I’m wondering if that has something to do with it.
Hopefully this fixes it.
