2 wireless mice interfering with each other-Help!

  buel 20:04 08 Jan 2011

Both me and my gf use wireless mice, for some strange reason they now seem to conflict.
I can use mine just fine but whenever my gf starts to move/use hers my mouse really struggles to work.
Please can anyone help explain why they are starting to do this now when we have had them for over 6 months with no problems.

have you tried uninstalling them, then re syncing them, and check your using decent batteries.

Hi Buel

The reason why they are doing this is because they are both transmitting on the same channel, this is because one or both of them has reset recently. There should be a way of changing the channel on one of them either by means of a manual switch on the receiver or by means of the software that came with the mice. Try Jamesds solution first especially resyncing them.
As to whats caused the problem, could be anything like changing the batteries. I have an old wireless keyboard that regularly requires re syncing for no apparent reason.

Hope this helps.
