    ok for the past month my mouse has gotten progressively worse, it started off by not working sometimes for a few minutes during gaming which we all know can be very annoying, now it has progressed to the point of clicking like there is a mad man behind it which is equally annoying, as i write this it has highlighted words by itself sometimes deleting them. I was assuming at first it was just the mouse but during this i was also having a problem with my keyboard constantly typing 11111111, but this has stopped now its just my mouse going crazy which has been leading me to believe it is my usbs

    this is my mouse

    this is my keyboard
    https://www.amazon.com/Razer-Blackw...504458543&sr=1-2&keywords=blackwidow+keyboard

    and this is my motherboard

    any help no matter what would be appreciated im just hoping its just my mouse and i wont have to get a new motherboard for new usbs

    Beg, borrow, or steal another USB mouse and plug it in. If you have to, buy a cheapie (less than $10). Unplug your gaming mouse.
    If the temporary mouse doesn't work a lot better, boot into Safe mode and try it there. Staying in Safe Mode, if it still misbehaves, unplug your keyboard. If the new/borrowed mouse is still wonky, its a hardware problem.
    By the way, it is safe to plug and unplug USB devices when the PC is on; just not PS/2 devices or storage devices.

    Omg I had a out of control mouse problem where it clicked uncontrolably and made me at times hella frustrated.
    This is how to fix the crazy mouse problem. Different versions of windows will have different wording, so good luck and don't worrry. On windows 10 just srtart by clicking the start button and then typing into start "mouse". Now open mouse options (not advanced mouse options)

    like the boss that you could be if you just stayed calm and focused a little bit on the task at hand, find mouse option that says the following and UN-CLICK it: "Scroll inactive windows when I over over them". (If you're on windows 10 and you don't see that, then close everything and start over.=, the mouse has 2 options windows in w10. Good luck retrieving sanity and control over your awol mouse cursor! (if all else fails, try feeding it some cheese.)

    On windows ten go to start (press start button) & like the pc guru which you're becoming now, go to the mouse options and switch OFF ""scroll inactive windows when i hover over them.""
    I did it 20 minutes ago and I'm happy that my mouse isn't dispaying anymore signs of insanity.
