Hello there, I have just completed my new build and it is a beast of a machine. i love it! however I am having a huge problem playing games in it!
Asus M3A79-T deluxw
Phenom 2 940
4 GB RAM
1GB GDDR5 4870
Vista 64 Bit
Using the mouse is fine in normal vista and programs however when i enter games i have the following problems:
Right clicking and Middle button clicking makes the view suddenly jump to a random direction.
It happens when i click the button down and when i let go of it!
Its extremely problematic in games like crysis where i cant aim or use suit functions!
What Ive Tried:
Two different mice (one cheap brandless and one average belkin)
Two different games (Crysis and Assassins Creed)
disabling "enhanced pointer something" in mouse settings
Running in Direct x 9 mode
Running in compatibility mode
Both games and mice run normally on my old XP i mac.
Please help, its so frustrating, crysis looks so good on this system but its unplayable with this problem!
I would appreciate any comments or idea anyone has.
Tried updating the Microsoft mouse drivers? The Intellipoint drivers should function for generic ones as well. The option you mention refers to Pointer Ballistics, but i thought that was XP only. /shrug Logitech ftw
Some motherboards have something like strange interrupts from the legacy ps2 (mouse and keyboards) commands that make the system stop responding when a key is pressed repeatedly.
Even worse for example, the ASUS M3A-78 EMH crashes the whole system when you press some buttons repeatedly on the keyboard. You play a game and wonder why the PC crashed? Temperatures? Drivers? no it is the keyboard. Anyway Asus fixed it with an bios update (and they even dared to write it on the changelog).
hi i was reading this in hope to fix the problem with the mouse on GTA san andreas.
are you saying all i have to do if i have a mouse plugged into the ps/2 slot is to delete the 2 drivers that the mouse has?
I want to be sure that is how you do it and fix the problem because i don't want to mess up my dad's computer.
Windows will automatically create the environment for the mouse at boot up.
The only time I have ever installed mouse drivers was for a special mouse that I had and it turns out that it didnt work correctly anyway.
