Solve Issues Related To Optical Mouse

Today you get different types of computer mice from the conventional mechanical mouse to the ultra-modern cordless 3-D mouse. Optical mouse, Bluetooth mouse, infrared mouse and trackball mouse are a few of them. Though all these basically deliver the same purpose, the working principle is what makes the difference. Mechanical mouse is almost obsolete as it is more prone to malfunctioning and faults.

Here we will be discussing more about the optical mouse and its various troubleshooting methods
What is an Optical Mouse?

An optical mouse is actually a pointing device that’s used for controlling the movement of the computer’s pointer. It works in the same way as a mouse ball. The main difference between using an optical mouse instead of mouse ball regards its precision. It makes use of an LED sensor to detect tabletop movements and then sends off that information to the computer for merry-munching. An optical mouse provides you with precise movements and a better control. Like any other hardware, there are instances where your optical mouse can encounter some issues. Here I’m discussing some tips that will assist you to correct the Microsoft problems related to Optical Mice.

Regarding Port

An optical mouse, whether it is wired or wireless, is usually connected to the computer through ports. The connecting port may be USB or PS2, and that too, depends on the mouse you’re using. If your machine is having a port that is damaged, then your system won’t recognize the device, and will not be able to connect to the computer. In this scenario, you can connect your mouse to another port. This will likely solve this issue.

Regarding the Drivers

For connecting any external devices to your laptop, it requires proper drivers. Otherwise the devices won’t work on your machine. So for the proper working of an Optical mouse, you should install appropriate drivers for it. If you are using an outdated driver, it’s better to update it by going to the Microsoft website.

Regarding the System

For the proper working of Optical mice, your system should have a functioning port and current drivers, and the mouse you are using should be compatible with your computer. If your mouse is not working with your computer, try to connect this to another computer, and see whether it is working or not. If it is working with the second computer, then the problem will be with your first computer.
