Windows 7: Unable to install mouse drivers

Unable to install mouse drivers

So yesterday I got a new Deathadder 2013, and when I plugged it in, windows tried to find the drivers, blah blah blah, and then it said that it was unable to find the drivers. So, being as it is the solution to everything, I just restart my computer and boom; the mouse worked after.

But today, when I start my computer, the mouse was once again, not working. After checking device manager, it told me that the drivers were missing. I've tried uninstalling the mouse via the device manager and plugging it back in, and restarting my computer to no avail. I tried the solution posted here Unable to install any USB devices as well.

I have however, tried to use the mouse on my other computers and that has proved successful. So, I was wondering if anyone knew where the mouse drivers are stored, if it works that way.

and I do have razer synapse installed.

Maybe Razer Synapse is conflicting with the Windows drivers, you could try un-installing Razer Synapse and then seeing if Windows recognizes and installs the drivers.

Ok, have you tried the mouse in a different USB port?

Darn, usually it will try re-installing if you change the port.

How about a system restore to a point just before you got the mouse?

Also did you install the Razer Synapse before or after you connected the mouse for the first time?

I just got it yesterday, and somehow I got it to work for the whole day.
when I started my computer this morning, it just stopped working even though I didnt change the USB slot that it was plugged into.

If it was me, I would try a system restore to 2 days ago, then un-install Razer Synapse reboot and try connecting it again. If it works then consider installing Razer Synapse again.
