    My CM inferno has started acting up lately. Here and there the mouse will get stuck where I can't move left and right. Only up and down. Odd. I have to pick it up and sit it back down. Not sure if the mouse is going bad or pad (ocz) is wearing down. I have a new hard pad on the way. So I grabbed my MX Revolution next to me to use that for the net. This is where it gets even odd to me. This mouse works as I rarely use it. It moves fast left and right but slowly up and down. I went into mice settings and changed the speed. It did improve but there's still the difference in vertical vs horizontal and even slower diagonally .

    Any ideas?

    Uh-Huh, please, put the tequila back in the cabinet.:laugh:

    But, really, have you tried un-installing all the mouse software.
    Then going to the device manager and un-installing any left devices, such as; mouse, hid devices associated with them, usb devices, etc.
    And re-installing the devices and software from scratch.

    Brush up on your keyboard navigation abilities...:)

    There are some registry entries pertaining to mouse speeds and settings; but, off hand... I can't remember them or where they are located in the registry. I will nose around and see if I can locate them and web page that explained it.

    Yeah, I had to fix a mouse problem a while back and had to play around with the keyboard until I got the hang of it, again.

    Edit:

    The settings in the registry are located at [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse] and will be similar( not exactly ) to:

    "ActiveWindowTracking"=dword:00000000
    "Beep"="No"
    "DoubleClickHeight"="4"
    "DoubleClickSpeed"="500"
    "DoubleClickWidth"="4"
    "ExtendedSounds"="No"
    "MouseHoverHeight"="4"
    "MouseHoverTime"="400"
    "MouseHoverWidth"="4"
    "MouseSensitivity"="10"
    "MouseSpeed"="0"
    "MouseThreshold1"="0"
    "MouseThreshold2"="0"
    "MouseTrails"="0"
    "SmoothMouseXCurve"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,a0,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,40,\
    01,00,00,00,00,00,00,80,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,05,00,00,00,00,00
    "SmoothMouseYCurve"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,66,a6,02,00,00,00,00,00,cd,4c,\
    05,00,00,00,00,00,a0,99,0a,00,00,00,00,00,38,33,15,00,00,00,00,00
    "SnapToDefaultButton"="0"
    "SwapMouseButtons"="0"

    Some info here: MouseSpeed

    You may be able to google for info on the other registry keys.

    Disclaimer: Warning, Will Robinson! If you are not familiar with the registry and editor; you can make your OS un-operable by changing settings there.
    So, system restore and\or back-up before changing settings through the registry.
    Have a good day.:)
