Default My Mouse

Ever since a few months ago, my mouse would randomly just not work well and not respond (well just a little bit). then after 1 minute, itd be back to normal. Ive tried changing the batteries. Help?

if it is a cordless, try wiping the recieving device with a soft clean rag ( maybe its dirty? ) just a thought anyway -goodluck.

also make sure there are no bigger obstacles between the mouse and the receiver

Also make sure the receiver is not by anything that would cause interference

did you move the reciever at all? With my mouse and keyboard, if they are too close to the reciever they start acting up like that.

have you been banging your mouse around? I had one like yours before, and I dropped it, and had the same issue. I just bought a new mouse, saved me the trouble.

If you can't fix it, get a mouse with cord. cordless mice suck (obviously).
