I sometimes have the same problem, again - usually becuase there is a hair in the hole (where the laser is).
I want to know why many people spend ridiculas amounts of money on the Micro$oft Optical Mice? I have always used Chic Optical Mice, and they are
seriously £4 on www.ebuyer.com...
I have never had any problems with them, they have lasted so far (about a year so far). They work on all major platforms (obviously) including Linux
and UNIX. Also, for that £4 (about $6) mine have got 5 buttons (plus scroller).
Logitech mice are really good too I know, I used to use them; and still have a few lying around - plus their prices are not too bad. But Micro$oft
mice are very expenisve!
Who the heck would buy a 'designer mouse'??? I know who... All those show-off 'lusers' (you know the ones, the newbies who buy new computers every
year, who don't need to - they just want the 'best' and show off).
Anyways, sorry for the rant, lol.
Back to the topic... I don't know of an anwser to completely solve the 'every so often glitch' in optical mice, but most seem to have them - so I
just guess, it's 'normal' - maybe it happens when the laser cannot read the surface for a split-second?
