Windows 7: Microsoft Wireless Arc Mouse problems

Microsoft Wireless Arc Mouse problems

Hello everyone,

I've been having problems with two of my Wireless Arc Mice from MS. It only occurs when using this computer.

The problem is.. When I use my mouse, sometimes it'll just stop taking input (moving the cursor) and it will take a bit before it'll start taking input again.

Now, I know its not the mouse itself as it did this with my other Arc Mouse, and it doesn't happen when I'm booted Linux.

So.. anyone have any suggestions? I've tried just using the standard HID_Compliant Mouse driver, and the driver provided by Microsoft via IntelliPoint. No differences with either.

Same problem, Windows 7 64Bit Enterprise.

Its only on my desktop that I have the issue though, my laptop running Windows 7 64Bit Pro doesn't have any trouble.

The problem gets worse when I play games, Starcraft 2 really makes it unusable.

Yeah turned out for me it was just that the usb receiver was just too far away, as soon as its like 8 inches away it stops working properly, try using it closer.
