I'm not quite sure where to put this but I'm in need of help.
I've been using a MX510 for about six years now and it has never once failed me in any way; however, over the last month or so, some really strange problem has occurred.
When I'm gaming, whether it be UT2004, CoD4, CoDWaW or any other fps-- whenever I am aiming at any enemy, and i click to shoot, my gun will not fire. For any single shot weapon, nothing will happen when I click-- for any auto-fire weapons, only one bullet will come out or sometimes, no bullets at all. This is strange because if I am firing at nothing or a team mate, everything works properly. It's extremely annoying because this completely ruins gaming for me.
It cannot be the mouse itself because it works properly outside of gaming and in any game that is not an fps.
If anyone has ever heard of something like this and/or may know what to do-- please help, lol. I seem to have the weirdest **** happen to me. Just a few months ago, I realized that my keyboard (saitek gamer's keyboard) was keeping planetside from loading properly. Because of this, I had to unplug my keyboard every time I wanted to launch planetside. By far, the most retarded glitch I have ever encountered. But again, if anyone may know what to do about my mouse issue, your help would be greatly appreciated.
as you can see, while aiming at someone and holding down my fire button with mini, NOTHING HAPPENS. as i aimed away to the left and right, you can see the gun begin to fire-- which makes it extremely hard to believe that the mouse is the problem; however, i will try a different mouse. when i aimed back at the guy, the gun fired a little bit.... stopped... and then fired a bit more.. and then stopped again. it's not packet loss and it's not fps loss.
also, when using single shot like shock and lg, it's almost like i have 1000 ping. sometimes, i'll click and the gun will work properly. sometimes, i'll click and nothing will happen at all. other times, i will click and it takes 4 seconds for the gun to shoot. this is only while aiming at somebody. if im aiming at a wall, the gun will shoot.
i find it hard to believe that it's anything wrong with my pc because i dont really play any fps games that require a more modern rig. cod5 is pretty much the peak of what i play. i get a consistent 40 fps in it. 40 fps isn't a lot but i've adjusted to it and do well.
in ut2004 i get 200+ uncapped fps and in cod4, i get 90-125
