ms intelli mouse exploer(optic)



hi, yesterday i bought one of those mice (usb), it works fine but it makes xp freeze when shutting down or going to stand by...
i've tried reinstalling xp but it didn't solve the problem.

Any ideas why this could occur, and how to solve this?

ps: i looked for something like "disable quick shutdown" in win me, but couldn't find??

thanks for help...
If it came with a ps/2 adapter, plug that in. That's the only solution I've seen... and i've seen a lot of folks with that mouse having problems.
thanks for help :) , i'll try this as soon as i buy an adapter
if u bought it retail u sould have one.. the little green one.
it comes standard on all usb mice.
mine is sort of bargain :D , it doesn't have an extra adapter
Also check your USB hubs. I had a nasty problem where
XP would hang on shutdown or restart, and I finally found out
that one of my three USB ports was somehow dedicated to,
and set up as, a printer port. After I plugged my printer into
that USB port, and my mouse and Smartmedia reader into the
remaining two, my problems disappeared. If I try to plug my
mouse, or SmartMedia reader into the port that the printer is
using, my system will hang on shutdown or reboot.

I always thought that all of the USB ports were universal, but
my Device Manager says otherwise.
only PS/2 will work !

Had the same problem with ms intellimouse optical, tried almost everything...only PS/2 worked !
Yeah, also the latest version of the drivers/app from :)
thanks for the link, but unfortunately it didn't solve my problem, so i think the only solution left is the ps/2 adapter...

thank you very much for your advices :) :)
MS Mouse

Talking of mice! I've just spent £60 on a Ms Optical Wireless mouse and it's the biggest waste of money I've spent in a while.

Talk about delays in response after clicking. My advice to people is to avoid this like the plague.

I've tried all sorts to sort this out but to no avail. Try and play Links 2001 with it and watch your scores rise dramatically or play Quake 3 and get fragged for your troubles.

If anybody has had similar problems or may know of a fix, I'd be pleased to know.

Time to get off my high horse.

Click ........Delay........oh finally
I use Logitech driver with mine... Now I have no problems...
finally i found a ps/2 adapter to try and it works, i *finally* can shutdown my computer :D :D

well, thank you very much friends :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
