    Hi Guys

    I recently bought this microsoft laser mouse 8000 " bluetooth"
    I bought it to replace my logitech laser mouse which was giving up on me after 2 years
    I thought it was just because it was old that it was not working right as i tried everything i could. It would work fine for a while and then the cursor would just slow down and go really slow across the screen for a few mins, then it would work fine, then it wouldnt.....and on and on........ Finally it stopped working alltogether so i brought it to the shop and got the microsoft one to replace it.

    I've had it for less than a month but right from the off it is doing the same as my logitech did..The cursor just randomly slows every so often and is very annoying, it just gets worse and worse till i have to revert back to my cable mouse, which i dont like at all....

    So im wondering at this stage is there something wrong with my pc?
    The logitech worked fine for nearly 2 years...

    I have all updated microsft mouse software and drivers,
    I have tried uninstall and reinstall several times
    The microsoft mouse works via a bluetooth dongle that came with it which works fine when sending and receiving things with it
    I dont think its the recharable battery in it because i tried putting a brand new battery in it when it goes funny like microsoft suggest bit it still doesnt work right!:confused:
    Ive also installed on different profiles on my pc aswell to see if any difference..

    The mouse has a light on it thats green and goes red when battery is low, on mine it is sometimes red when it is on the charger! :confused: and is never on when its off the charger..

    I have a microsoft wired keyboard aswell..

    Im using a dell inspiron 8000
    Windows Xp with sp2 home edition
    3 GHz
    768 mb ram

    I cant think of any programs i installed that would affect it either,
    So im wondering now if i have another faulty mouse or is it something to do with my pc,
    I really am stumped and have tried all i can think of.....

    I hope you guys can help me,

    Thanks a mill

    The only thing I can think of that may affect both mice would be if you were using the same USB port for the transmitter/receiver and the port was bad. Try a different port?
