I think my optical mouse is dieing!
My left mouse button only clicks once out of every three or four times I click it!
This is my all-time favorite mouse that has gotten me through hour after hour of Nazi killing and world conquering! I just noticed that I’ve actually worn a spot into the left mouse button from all the use. What am I going to do? How will I compete? One day it was clicking along just fine, click-click-clickity-clickity-click, and the next it’s gasping for breath and sputtering!
Not only does this suck for gaming, but it hasn’t made using it for anything else all that much fun either. You don’t realize just how much you use that left mouse button until you CAN’T SCROLL YOUR FRIGGIN WINDOWS! Or CLICK ON STUFF TO OPEN IT! AIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
Do you think they have an emergency room for broken computer mice?
Update: I now have a new Logitech optical mouse to replace my old one as can be seen in the new pic on the right there. I’m not sure I like it as much as my old one, but at least it’s still got quite a bit of blue color. It feels a bit smaller in my hand and my fingertips clip the edges when I press the buttons, but it does have a nifty new “task switcher” button in the middle for jumping from one open program to another which I’ll probably never use.
I also looked at the wireless optical Logitech had to offer and it felt a lot better with none of the problems this one has other than it was $15 more expensive and the one box they had looked as though it had been opened and messed with so I went for the cheaper one instead. The old mouse outlasted three PCs so it’ll be interesting to see how long this one lasts. At least it should tide me over until I can buy this keyboard and mouse combo from Thermaltake.
