    Mouse and keyboard acting weird/inconsistently


    About a year ago, I had a mouse that started double clicking occasionally. Ignored it for a long time, despite it continuously doing it. Fairly close to that same time period, my keyboard also began to occasionally double key press. I've set my keyboard settings so that it shouldn't register same key presses happening in too quick succession, and that mostly solves the issue with the keyboard (though it'll still double key press from time to time).
    Recently, I switched back to an older mouse I still had lying around. This one never had double click issues before I replaced it with my newer one, but I'm experiencing double clicks on this one now too. Sometimes, it'll also register left clicks as right clicks. It generally occurs in periods of time. Like sometimes, I can go days or weeks without much issues, while other days it'll double click or right click like crazy all the time.
    In the 20+ years I've been working with PC's, this last year has given me more mouse+keyboard issues than all other years put together. Any suggestions?

    Summary:
    -Got 2 mouses that constantly go through periods of double clicking.
    -Mouse sometimes goes through periods of registering left clicks as right clicks.
    -Keyboard frequently double key presses.

    Windows 10, Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.592)

  2. Mouse acting weird

    After a Windows update my mouse on my HP laptop is acting weird, is very laggy sometimes. It even freezes sometimes.

    I've tried almost every method that the experts posted on this forum and I still have the issue.

    Hi,

    One reason why your mouse and keyboard is not working is because of an outdated driver. We suggest that you update the mouse and keyboard driver by following the steps below:

    • Pres Windows+X key on your keyboard.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Locate the mouse and keyboard drivers, right click, then click on Update.

    Hi Chrystal,

    For us to properly isolate the issue with your keyboard and mouse, we would like to know the following:

    • Are you using a wired or wireless keyboard and mouse?
    • Have you tried using a different keyboard and mouse? If yes, how was it?
    • Have you tried using your keyboard and mouse to another computer? If yes, what is the result?
