Questions & Answers for Dynex - Wireless Optical Mouse - Gray

Question

Mouse click will erase the previous fields

Dynex™ - Wireless Optical Mouse - Gray
I use this mouse on a PC. My issue is with forms that need to be filled out online. What i have found is that if I am filling out a form and I use the mouse to move between fields it will erase the previous field. It is not 100% of the time but it is in the 70% plus range. However, if I remove the mouse and use the tab key it works fine on the same form. When I re-connect the mouse the issue re-occurs.
So it has to be the mouse right?
Is there a driver update or a fix for this problem?
I really like the mouse but this is really annoying

I'm no IT person, but I don't see how it could be the mouse itself. Not to be rude or insulting, but maybe it's the way the mouse is being used. Does anyone else have this pblm when they are on your PC? And, does this pblm present itself when you are using other applications or browsers? I have 4 of this particular Dynex wireless mouse on 4 diff PC's and have absolutely NO pblms with them. But, do keep in mind that no matter how good a track record a product has, someone somewhere is going to get one that is defective. And that, my friend, could be your pblm.

I have it on my Acer Aspire laptop & haven't had that problem at all.

Sometimes I forget to hit the button that makes the mousepad on the laptop stop working & hit it accidentally with my hand but that has nothing to do with the mouse, that has always happened if I forget.

To use this product on any computer, plug the USB receiver into a USB port on your Mac or PC, then turn on the mouse. Your computer will automatically detect the mouse.

Question

Why does it keep disconnecting?

I have windows seven. Every time I shut down/restart my computer, the mouse driver has to be reinstalled via the troubleshooting hardware and devices program.

Now, though, I haven't been able to reinstall the driver by troubleshooting and the mouse still wont work. I've been nearly fed up with this thing for having to waste 2 minutes every time I want to play a game on my laptop torubleshooting and reinstalling the driver, but now it just plain wont work, period.

It should show the driver as being a HID Compatible Mouse (Microsoft Generic Driver) under Device Manager -- Mice and other pointing devices. Check for a yellow or red exclamation point or x beside it. Unplugging the USB should remove it from the list; reinserting should connect it again.

What driver are you trying to "reinstall"? It should come direct from Microsoft right away when you connect it. There may be a conflict with something else you have installed on your PC, particularly USB connected. Try removing them and see if the problem doesn't go away - that way you can pinpoint where the conflict (if any) lies.

Last step to try would be: From Device Manager, Mice & other pointing Devices, find your Mouse entry, right click and select Uninstall. Then select Scan for Hardware Changes from the Action menu at the top and let it "Find" and install the mouse. I've seen this cure things for me numerous times.

Question

Is this a full - sized mouse, or a "mini" mouse (aka laptop)?

I like something small for travel and use on a laptop desk. Cant really tell from the image if this is small or big.

I have a "mini" travel mouse also. This one is slightly larger than that but I would call it "compact" as opposed to full size. It has essentially replaced my "travel" mouse for ease of use and comfort in my hand.

Go ahead, purchase and see for yourself, you'll be glad you did!

About 4" from front to back, 2" left to right & from desk top up is 2" at the highest point... it's kinda in between, but very comfortable & I haven't turned mine off since I got it 2 months ago... as well it's very responsive, I use it from my bedroom about 35 ft away from the back of the pc through the couch & it works great!

It's not a full size mouse, but I wouldn't say it's a "mini" mouse either like the tiny ones you see people use with laptops. It's in between those sizes I would say. I like the size of it. Still compact for travel, but not so small that it feels weird to hold.

Yes, as long as you have a spare USB port. If using a desktop, you will want to have the USB plugged in the front, not the back, for maximum range. When I had a desktop, plugged it in the rear jacks greatly reduced the range and responsiveness of the mouse, simply because of all the metal and items between the mouse and the receiver.

Yes! I do... I really like it because it's a little smaller than a desktop mouse but not as small as a laptop mouse & the battery that comes with it is great! I haven't turned it off for 2 months & it's even responsive in the next room 35 ft away!

answer 2
Try unplugging the USB connector for the mouse and reboot your computer. Once it's up, then insert the USB connector and let it re-establish communication with the mouse. Then try things.

If this doesn't resolve it, check your laptop touchpad driver settings - sometimes an advanced driver has the capability of turning off touchpad when it detects a mouse for example. If the driver is corrupt then the touchpad could misdetect it and think it's waiting for the touchpad click rather than the mouse click. Best resolution is to go to Control Panel -- Device Manager - find the device under Mice and other pointing devices and get the touchpad manufacturer name. From there either have Windows search for updated driver (Right Click the device in Device Manager & choose Update Driver) or go directly to the manufacturer's website and find a Support/Download tab and go from there.
