    Mouse Sensitivity and Accessibility of External HD

    All right, so I regret to say I have two problems; one with my mouse and the other with my external 1TB HD but I'll start with the mouse first.

    Some times when I make a single click, the mouse behaves as if I had made a double-click and opens files instead of merely highlighting them. Or minimising Google Chrome (which is done with a double click) when all I did was close a tab (single click). It doesn't happen all the time but has become more frequent as of late and is especially annoying when arranging files into folders by dragging and dropping (it would drop the file into a different folder while I was still dragging it even though I hadn't released the mouse button yet).

    I received this mouse for free when I bought my laptop (a year ago). I don't recall it having come in any packaging whatsoever and it doesn't appear to have a brand (it looks really cheap xD). Is it time to replace it?

    As for the 1TB external, it's a brand new Verbatim USB 3.0 and hardly a month since I got it from the shop. My laptop has three USB ports; one on the right (this one is used for the mouse) and two on the left. The first time I used the external, I plugged it in from the left and it worked fine. Ever since then however, neither of the ports on the left work and now it only works if I plug it into the right port (which is inconvenient since I would have to compromise the mouse).

    The funny thing is, one of the left ports doesn't work at all. The second one 'appears' to work. The LED on the external would light up and the beep sound from the computer tells me it's connected. But Autoplay doesn't pop up nor does the external appear under My Computer. But if I look under Hardware in the Control Panel, it's listed there but I can't access it from there.

    Help, please?

    Re: Mouse Sensitivity and Accessibility of External HD

    What you should do is if you know someone else that has a USB mouse, attempt to use their one first before buying a new one in order to see if the fault lies in your mouse or not.

    Regarding your second problem, you might need to update the USB drivers for your laptop.

    If that doesn't work, then it may be a hardware problem and you'll have to get it checked with your manufacturer.

    If it's a problem with your software then you'll need to uninstall the USB drivers and then restart your laptop, which should fix the problem. Only use this method if you know that the touch pad of your laptop still works otherwise...you won't be able to use a mouse after if it doesn't work.



    This video should be of some help. =]

    Re: Mouse Sensitivity and Accessibility of External HD

    Ah, I see. Thanks, Gwee! Well I tried checking the drivers but nothing seems out of the ordinary. I don't have the confidence to do it manually so maybe I'll try out that Driver Boost thing in the video. If it's the drivers that's mucking around with my mouse, I guess it'a a gone case sooner or later since it doesn't have a brand. Though I better do something about the external. Thanks for your help again, Gwee.

    Just get a new mouse. I've had it happen a few times and it's usually a sign of it being worn out.

    Ah, good to know it wasn't just my mouse being retarded because of something I did. Thanks! I'll go look for a new one next chance I get.

    Re: Mouse Sensitivity and Accessibility of External HD

    The double clicking mouse issue is a known issue for mouse that use Omcron branded switches. All of my highend mouse do, and suffer the same problem.

    I was be able to fix them with this guide: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/s...d.php?t=594646

    Sounds like you have driver issues for the HDD problem.

    I only post what I bought. My uploads are for those who share the same taste but could not easily import them. If you can buy the game, please do it to support the company.

    Re: Mouse Sensitivity and Accessibility of External HD

    Thanks for the link, Checkmate. it was rather interesting. I think I'll try it out only after I get an extra mouse though; I hate using the touchpad on the laptop and I'm not exactly the most careful person in the world so... ^^;

    As for the HD it worked today when I plugged it into a left port but only after about 2 minutes. The Driver Boost Pro wasn't recognised by Windows as an installable program and the Verbatim website actually doesn't have any drivers for the HD. I don't think there's a problem with my laptop since everything else works fine.

    I don't think there's a problem with my laptop since everything else works fine.
    Driver, especially USB one are port independent, and tend to corrupt if you have an unstable PC. Unfortunately, most user doesn't understand much about how this work thus this problem is frequently happened. Also, Driver Boost Pro is such a bullshit software.

    And btw, USB drivers are made by Intel Chipset or whatever chipset you're using, such as Nvidia (very old), or AMD. Microsoft usually embed them directly on their OS but they don't have the newer chipset driver, hence sometimes report errors. All USB3 port are powered by a third party chipset, most popular are NEC, Marvell, and Artheros. This is for your information only, don't try to do something because chance you break your OS is high unless you know what you're doing (but I honestly don't think so)

    Another common problem is that if it is a portable HDD and it has no other power source than the USB port you're plugging in, then your laptop USB port doesn't feed it enough power. Some portable HDD has 2 USB line out to supply the extra power necessary. Use of a better (thicker) USB cable or the one that has 2 USB line out (and plug both of them in your laptop) may fix this problem.

    Re: Mouse Sensitivity and Accessibility of External HD

    Ah, that's sounds pretty troublesome. Yeah, I'll probably end up BSOD-ing the computer if I try anything of the sort. Though come to think of it, maybe my laptop doesn't support USB 3.0... But I seem to remember the same thing happening on the family Mac (though the problem was solved by simply switching ports). So I guess the most likely of the problems you have deducted would be the port not providing it enough power (yes, it's a portable - I guess I should have mentioned that ). But the cable that came with it seems pretty thick - about half a centimetre. Or is that the standard? I'm such a doofus.
