Windows 7: Razer Mamba not detected (experienced user, tried everything on google

Razer Mamba not detected (experienced user, tried everything on google

I'm an experienced user and tried all solutions found on google, but this problem is really hard to fix.

I just bought a brand new Razer Mamba mouse. The mouse is not faulty, it is working on another computer, but not on mine. I used different logitech mice before trying this one, it is the first time i have a problem installing a mouse in 20 years of working with computers...

The weird thing is that the mouse is detected and working (i can move it) in the BIOS, but not after booting Windows

- The mouse lights up, but is not detected anywhere
- Razer Synapse 2.0 is installed, but it is not detecting the mouse
- In Device Manager "Razer Mamba Dock" is not correctly installed (labeled as Unknown Device)
- I tried installing older drivers, but it's still not detecting the mouse
- I tried updating the firmware, doesn't work

- Tried wireless or wired, same problem
- I tried 6 different USB ports, USB2 and USB3
- All USB ports power settings are configured correctly (Windows is set to NOT turn off USB to save power)
- Old drivers of the old logitech mouse is uninstalled
- I tried using the safe mode, didn't help
- Tried using only 1 mouse at time and booting Windows with only the mouse in USB ports
- Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers countless of times, and also tried without drivers
- Tried forcing windows to manually install the drivers of the Unknown Device, but it won't let me
- Tried with a different Windows user
- All drivers are up to date, same for BIOS
- Mouse is fully charged

Have you tried using the mouse without Razer Synapse? (I've had nothing but issues with Synapse, I now use Corsair keyboards and mice with no added software)
Make sure the mouse is plugged into a USB2 port.

Yep, i tried without Synapse. I even tried the old Mamba drivers. Also tested with USB2 ports and USB3.
It really looks like a driver issue or a conflict with something on this particular computer, since it works in 3 other computers except mine. The mouse also works in my BIOS but not after booting windows.

I have read on different forums that a lot of people are having problems with Synapse... So disappointing for a $200 mouse...

Synapse is the reason I no longer use Razer products. Had a Razer gaming keyboard and mouse.

This is copy/pasted from Razer's support site:

I am getting a "No Mamba Mouse Detected" when I try to open the configuration software. Why?
When you see the "No Mamba Mouse Detected" screen, please open up device manager and check whether firmware driver is installed correctly as follows:
1. Right click on My Computer.
2. Select the "Manage" option.
3. Click "Device Manager" at the left menu selection.
4. Expand the last item which is "Universal Serial Bus controllers". If the driver is installed correctly, you should see a ""Freescale JM60 Bootloader"" device inside. If you do not see this device in device manager, please unplug your Razer Mamba. Check that the power switch is in the OFF position. Then, press and hold the pairing button and plug in the Razer Mamba again. This should make the ""Freescale JM60 Bootloader"" device entry appear and you should be able to update firmware using the application. Please let us know if the above steps did not manage to solve your problem.

Thanks for the reply,

I have seen this information from Razer website, in device manager there is nothing like that under USB controllers.
Only Razer Mamba Dock is listed under "unknown devices".
This mouse doesn't seem to have a pairing button like other models. There is no button under the mouse, i looked everywhere. Some website said the pairing button was holding down the 3 mouse buttons at the same time (left, right and mousewheel buttons). I tried it multiple times but it does nothing, and i haven't found official confirmation that this is the correct way to put this mouse in pairing mode.

Here's a screenshot of device managers:

And here's a picture of the bottom of my mouse :

Can you scroll down and post the rest of the device manager? What motherboard are you using?

What do you want to see in the device manager ?
Here's another screenshot with a couple of options expended:
If you need any other information just ask me

Do you have anything listed under "Human Interface Devices" (like what I have in my device management)? I think that you have a driver issue some where.

Do you have another mouse to use for troubleshooting? I would disconnect the Mamba, uninstall Synapse, plug in your test mouse and restart the computer. Unplug any USB2 devices except for the keyboard and mouse. Have a look in the device manager and try to find/install drivers for the items with ? or ! next to the name. Even the one that says USB3.

Found this after a little searching. Looks like some other people have the same issue.

Regarding the firmware update, try the following:

Open the firmware update program
Connect the USB cable direct to the mouse, don't plug in yet
Hold the 2 mouse buttons and the wheel button in together and plug the mouse in
(helps if you have a 2nd mouse installed as the mamba will stop working)
Hold for 5 secs and then release. You should see the drivers load again as well as the bootloader
Click next on the firmware updater and it should now update
After the mouse firmware is updated, it will try and update the dock.
Remove the USB cable from the mouse and connect to the dock
Unplug the USB cable from the computer, hold the wifi button down and reconnect. hold form 5s and release. The same thing should happen as with the mouse.
Click next and the firmware should then upload to the dock
