View Full Version : Micro$hit intellicrap

04-06-2002, 07:52 PM
i have had the intellimouse explorer for a while now and it is starting to become a bit of a ba$tard. It keeps freezing, like the keyboard will work and teh LED will be on, but the buttons and 'eye' dont respond. It also has a habbit of turning off, and the resolution is to pull it out and replug it in (USB) or restart my pc.

any ideas on WTF is wrong with it?

Are you having troubles with any other USB devices?

i had a problem with usb once, it all started when i got a usb web cam, if i tryed to use the cam it would freeze and when that happened it would also affect my usb keyboard, mouse and printer. The problem turned out to be the chip set on my mobo, which was the VIA KT133 chip set, knowing there was a slight problem with the KT133 chip set i decided to buy another mobo, this time i bought the one with the VIA KT133A chip set and that got rid of the problem, now all my usb devices are working fine.
:shoot: KT133 chip set

only my mouse runs on USB

running XP Pro

found the problem

wire is broken about 6-7cm up from the mouse

looks like some soldering needs to be done

thats why i pissed my intellimouse off, the wire kept breaking, they have a 5 year warranty so i sent it back, each time i got back a brand new mouse, but in a few months it would break again. cost too much to keep sendin it back

sounds like a design flaw - or maybe you shouldn't let the cat play with it.

geez i lub my intellicrap, its great, wouldnt waste money on any other expensive mouse...

HOW THE HELL DO YOU REPEATEDLY break the wires, there is way too much cord for u 2 b needing to stretch it places

04-24-2002, 10:02 AM
thats the thing, the cable isnt stretched. my genius one is going fine, and i got a sony one wif a mem stick reader in it and no probs wif it either

my intellimouse cord takes a fair floggin.. It dangles to the floor below my desk, and i'm always getting my feet tangled in it.. yanking the mouse around and stuff. Haven't had a prob though..

Had mine for a couple of yrs now with no probs either, but then I don't swing it around over my head really to let it fly at someone though. :D
