Windows 7: Razer Lachesis mouse

Wow this is an old thread but what the heck.

I ran into a problem with my razer death adder causing the computer to not recognize the mouse correctly. The razor driver would recognize the mouse in a particular USB port but this would only bring up the tuning software. The mouse had fully updated firmware and drivers for Windows 7. Under device manager the mouse is recognized razor death adder (with an error symbol next to it) and under Human User Interface as well as Mice as a HID compliant device which is of course wrong. Very rarely if I plugged it into a different USB port and restarted the OS, the mouse would work until it finally bit the bullet. Since this mouse has worked great for years, the problem has got to be hardware related. (Very likely due to my wife's internet frustrations and subsequent pounding of my expensive mouse).

So anyway, long story short I had nothing to lose and took the stupid thing apart. Three tiny screws, 2 under the front pads, one under the sticker. Took everything apart, cleaned and made sure the connections were seated well. Pressed gently on the chip to make sure all of the solder connections were still good. Plugged it in, and be damned if the thing didn't work perfectly. So I got really lucky and its worked great for awhile now. I spent a fair amount of searching to find a solution for this so I hope it helps someone else.

Well I just got this mouse, and no matter what I do the firmware and configuration software is telling me the mouse is not recognized.. Why did I pay almost 100 bucks?

I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, doing the DPINST.exe in win7 folder. NOTHING.

I'm in Win7x64.

Hi chlywly

Are you using the latest drivers (the ones you get on the CD with the mouse are sometimes out of date). look for the latest Here

Yes I am.. In fact my mouse didn't even come with drivers the manual says please download them online.

Either way, I've now tried literally everything and it doesn't seem to install properly. Lachesis mouse does not show up in Device Manager, and the config nor Firmware Update detects it. I'm very frustrated.

Have you tried starting over, close down your Computer unplug the mouse reboot then close down again plug in the mouse and reboot.

Also my Razer mouse in device manager is not under mouse >

Sorry what do you mean by close down? I've restarted multiple times, before and after installing drivers. Nothing is working. Razor is not showing up anywhere. I only had "HID Compliant Device" listed. I have several different mice. (The one I was using before was a Logitech G9x)

It will only appears a Lachesis when using the Razer driver. Otherwise it does appear as a HID Compliant Device because it's using the generic win driver.

I appreciate your attempt to help me, anyway I give up. I'm going to take it back for a refund. I've spent literally 4 hours trying to fix this.

Apparently, for what ever reason although it installs correctly it will NOT use the razor driver. Keeps using the generic driver. Won't detect. :0

I've run it as admin, I've done everything, seriously. It's ridiculous.
