Logitech mouse problem - loses focus when highlighting

  Peter Lanky 18:20 PM 09 Jul 12

I have a logitech laser mouse - no model number, but came with Logitech comfort keyboard/mouse combo. The problem is the mouse is losing focus. Examples - 1) when I highlight a paragraph, it loses part of the highlight before I've completed. 2) When highlighting an area in photoshop, it makes the selection before I've finished defining it. 3) When dragging messages in Thunderbird, it 'lets go' as I'm dragging and drops the message in the wrong place.

It doesn't appear to be software as I've deleted the drivers and downloaded new ones, and the fact that a different mouse doesn't do this makes me certain it's a hardware issue. However, before it goes in the bin, are there any known issues with Logitech mice doing this?

Sounds very much like your mouse is dying.Cannot think of anything else to suggest as you seemed to have ruled out a software issue. I to have a Logitech mouse the MX518 best mouse I have ever had, beat the Ionix and CM Storm I have hands down.
