Dr PirateDr Pirate Posts: 8,303 Legendary Poster
Has died.

1 second im playing Age Of Empires 2, next my mouse isnt working and it hasnt since, Ive had to pay 8 quid for a shitty one and im miffed cos my propper mouse cost me 35 quid.

The mouse says that it wont work with anything other than XP and 2k Profesional. For about 6 months ive been using it with ME and it has worked fine, all of a sudden its decided to die.

:( help?

    Is it wireless or infa-red?

    Wireless mice can be pretty unreliable with other electricle equipment around and inra-red has a terrible habit of getting dust on the lens and shutting itself off.

    Whats the make/model of the mouse?

    Not sure where this 2000/XP bollox came from. Being an MS mouse, they're obviously scaremongering. I've been using a cordless Logitech since 1999, originally with W95, then to W98.

    I had one of those. Exact same problem. Used it for a couple of months and then it just died. No amount of driver re-loading, battery changing or banging against the desk worked. Went back to my old Cable and ball mouse. (better for playing games anyway).
