Default M95 stops PC booting

Hello folks,

I have purchased a Corsair M95 gaming mouse, which is extremely well made. It’s now connected through a Trustlink 4-port hub, although I did do a direct connection for the firmware update.

I initially had some problem programming the buttons in the configuration screen, since I didn’t realise that one needs to click the macro record icon before selecting the button to program and then the keystrokes.

However, it all works fine now, until I reboot.

The BIOS appears not to recognise the mouse as a mouse and just keeps rebooting until I unplug either the keyboard USB or the mouse USB! I can then plug in either one after windows has started and it is detected servicing works fine. Plugging into the 4-port hub or a socket on the PC makes no difference. The M95 seems to be recognised as a keyboard!

The PC boots with no problem using an ordinary three button scroll USB mouse. I have tried altering all the relevant settings in the BIOS and it just won’t boot with the M65 whatever I do. This is pretty irritating.

Anyone got any ideas?

Do you have the latest BIOS installed?

Yep. Updated in the last couple of weeks.
It seems to be something to do with the M95 being identified as a USB keyboard. I may try using a PS2 kbd + the M95 and see if that works.

Just tried booting with the M95 and an old PS2 keyboard and the whole thing works fine.

I now seem to have the choice of an old non-gaming mouse and a new keyboard, or the M95 and a very old PS2 keyboard - neither choice appeals.

Having built all my computers in the last ten years, I'm also interested in the technical cause if anyone has any ideas ...

I took off the PS2 keyboard and put back the USB keyboard, then by way of experiment, rebooted with the USB M95 and the USB keyboard.

The problem seems to have resolved itself and the whole shooting match works perfectly.

Weird.
