I'm not sure if this is the correct site to post it on, but I'm having problems with my Razer Naga Epic.

I took a break for about a week, and when I went to use my Naga Epic all the buttons, left click, right click, side buttons, everything are delayed by about 5-10 seconds.

I can move the mouse pointer around fine, there's no delay there, but the buttons take 5-10 seconds to register.

I've tried it on multiple computers and operating system, nothing different.

I've tried taking the battery out, wired, wireless and nothing has fixed it, there's nothing on the Razer site about it and I've found nothing on Google.

I've even tried throwing the piece of crap against the wall and still nothing, and yes I really did throw it against the wall, however it hit a music CD case and broke it, the mouse if fine other than the buttons still being delayed by 5-10 seconds.

I am being 100% serious about this problem, does anyone have any suggestions?

Edit: I have no problems with other mice, wired or wireless.

This question came from our site for passionate videogamers on all platforms.

  • Have you tried updating the fimrware? razersupport.com/… – Sorean Oct 19 '11 at 3:44
  • It's already up-to-date, both firmware and drivers, tried with and without drivers, even reinstalling the drivers. – Nexerus Oct 19 '11 at 3:47
  • How about increasing the polling rate? If that doesn't do it, it's probably something with the mouse itself since you say the problem travels with the mouse on different computers. Could try re-updating the firmware, but I'm not sure if their app will let you do that. – Sorean Oct 19 '11 at 5:52
  • Polling rate didn't change anything. – Nexerus Oct 19 '11 at 7:00

The reason that the mouse does this is because it enters sleep mode when it stops moving, it seems that in your case the timer is affected which makes it enter sleep mode way too fast. For the device to return from sleep mode it has to reconnect Bluetooth, which can indeed take 5-10 seconds.

Take the warranty road, or send it in for a repair. But it seems that you decided to break it instead...


Never mind, I finally had enough of the mouse and ended up throwing it against the wall hard enough to break it into pieces.

    You feel bad for the misbehaving mouse, @sinni800? I feel bad for the wall. – Pops Oct 21 '11 at 14:54

I really wanted to throw this against the wall like you did, but after constantly reinstalling the drivers. I decided to:

  • Uninstall all
  • Delete from registry
  • Update from the website

This seems to do the trick, at least for the time being.
