Mouse hardly moves up and down, works fine side to side

Hi there!

Today I woke up and booted up my computer to find that my mouse has a problem. It can hardly move up and down anymore, it's incredibly slow. Side to side works fine, but it can hardly go up or down. I turned my computer off late last night and it was all fine, nothing has changed at all with the mouse. I have tried to use it on two different computers, restarting endless times and even tried a system restore grasping onto hopes something would work. I have also tried other mice (two different kinds) and they both work. This makes me think my mouse has just died.

The mouse in question is a Feenix Nascita and it cost me a fair bit a couple of years ago, so if I could fix it it would be great, rather than looking for a new mouse.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, you tried all the things I would recommend. Have you tried rolling back or reinstalling driver? Unless you want to take it apart and maybe clean it out see if anything is in the way of the optical sensor, but that's up to you.

    If it's a few years old, then it might just be it's time :( As the ol' saying goes, "They don't make em' like they used to"

    I got somehow "trapped" into the Razer Naga three years ago, I've had to buy a new one each year so far, but I'm putting a stop to it now. There are very few series of mice anymore which are 85-100% reliable even if you spend $100 on them. I think it'd be a better approach to buy $30-50 mice instead.

    Sorry couldn't be more helpful :( hope it's something to do with the drivers.

    We've just released our first gaming mouse, if you'd like a test sample to review, let me know and I'll get one sent out to you.
