Left mouse key needs holding down to work

The left key on our wireless mouse needs holding down for about a second before it responds. Cursor moves as normal & new batteries inserted. It's almost like a 'sticky key' thing but on a mouse! Can't see the setting in Control Panel to solve this.

Have you tried another mouse first to see if the mouse is faulty ?

Not yet. Only got the 1.

Ok,Have a look in Device Manager.

Start/Right click My Computer/Properties/hardware/Device Manager....look for Mice and other pointing devices.

Expand the + key and do you see any yellow exclaimation marks.

You could uninstall the mouse from device manager and reboot,xp will install the generic drivers,or try updating the driver from device manager.

Try these and if no joy post back.
