getting rid of unwanted warnings

  pollpott 11:09 10 Jan 2007

I keep getting a window opening telling me that my mouse battery is low which does not respond to simply unchecking the 'remind me later' box. After ignoring this message for the first few days it then changes to one which tells me that 'my mouse will no longer work' I use the mouse to cancel the window and carry on but it keeps coming back. How to get rid of it ?

How about recharging/replacing the battery

Yeah but the battery isn't dead, that's why it's so annoying.

How long have you had the mouse?

It might be worth cleaning the contacts with a pencil

the mouse works fine, it's just the message i want to be rid of

It may be faulty even though it works

One option is to check for the latest driver for the mouse, this may resolve the issue?

have you got any mouse-specific software? If so, maybe there's an option to disable the warnings??

(I had to uninstall my Logitech mouse software; it kept crashing me out of games if I inadvertently hit the scroll wheel. Works just fine with the windows default drivers / setup)

i've checked thru the mouse properties via control panel, there's a lot you can change but switching off the low battery warning isn't there. I guess i'll just have to put up with it, thanks everyone for the suggestions

Have the same problem with an MS mouse. Uninstall the software.

doesn't the mouse need any of it? should i keep a copy?
