My old Microsoft Optical Standard Mouse works! Today tested Razer and same thing happened as with old mouse - mouse loses direction or correct DPI count and ends up several cm's away. I tested in MS Paint and when was painting circles this happened. But why did Microsoft Wireless Mouse 3000 did not show such symptoms? Well it did actually, but because of lower DPI than my Microsoft Optical Mouse and Razer i think i could not notice discrepancies between both.
So far it seems optical and IR mice do not pick-up DPI correctly on my desk which is covered with oilcloth. But why could this be? I have Previously Microsoft Optical Standard Mouse worked well and now it does not? Can this be because of a cleaning liquid i used one day on oilcloth? I doubt, but i remember i also used anti-ant spray so maybe it is the culprit?
I had a sticker so i placed it on the oilcloth and it helped solve the problem but it hardly sticks to oilcloth maybe because of anti-ant spray i used as mentioned.
Take a look at the picture please:
I wonder if laser mouse would work on that oilcloth...
Well, i did not waste $72 i would say but if i knew the problem was in oilcloth earlier, i would stay with Microsoft Optical Standard Mouse. At least i have 2 more buttons now which will help for surfing web...
