    Today my mouse just decided that the left-click wouldnt do anything. It happened after my computer launched and set up an Age of Empires game... and it was working perfectly fine before then. I tried rebooting, cleaning the mouse... still doesnt work. When i went into mouse options i changed the buttons around so i can now click normally with the right side, but the left side still doesnt work. Ive never had a mouse die before... do you think my mouse is dead???

    Its a WiseTech USB Optical mouse... about 4 years old, and i have Windows XP. If someone could help me it would be muchly appreciated!

    Its got big worn down patches on the clickers and is really old so i wouldnt be surprised if its gone. :rolleyes:

    Personally I think that the mouse had a stroke and is impaired on the left-side.

    After 4 years of gaming/clicking, invest in a new one!

    G'day, yes I would suggest a "Viking funeral" this is where you get arrested by burning the thing in your back yard and the neighbours call the police because of the pollution stench. Hard to part with aren't they, you hate to toss your inseparable friend in the rubbish.
    Maybe driving your car over it a few times on the highway, then every time you pass that place in future you can nod your head in memory and say a few words to yourself.
    Of course that might be better done in private so that you won't end up in an asylum.
    People don't understand these days!!!
    Cheers, qldit.
