Andrew LB is still being judged by the masses


Default Any way to take the loud click out of my Logitech MX900?

Does anyone know how to rid my mx900 or any other mouse of the loud clicking sound when you use the two main buttons? It drives my girlfriend nuts when she is sleeping while i'm doing work on my PC. My diNovo keyboard is near silent like a laptop but the mouse clicking sound is damn loud just like my old mx Duo (mx 700) and my mx 300 prior to that.

Silence is golden...

Thanks in advance,

- Andrew

to mod the mouse i dont know but you could cover your mouse hand with a folded towel or use your mouse inside a box with a hole cut to get your hand in, i give you the award for strangest request of the year 2004

PS is it work or the click fest sacred keeping her awake ?

There was someone who did a mod on this a while back. I think what they did was open the mouse up and insert some sort of cloth inbetween the button and the surface it contacts, a damper if you will.

Perhaps you didn't understand my post. THEY ALL CLICK LOUD. They come like that from Logitech.

Cool. Thanks for the idea. I'll take it apart and give that one a shot.

Wow thats a good idea actually, maybe I'll give that a shot. I find the clicking sound on my MX-700 to be somewhat annoying too.

ive never head of a silent clicking mouse (unless the clicking was on its last legs and the mouse was actually gonna die becuase the button couldnt get clicked anymore due to excessive clicking which defeated the clicking sound)

I have only ever managed to get rid of the loud noise the wheel makes, as for the buttons I tihnk you would have to replace the trigger switch. But as i too have a Dinovo, I wouldnt want to take a screw driver to it given its sheer sexyness and lovely price tag

Though Logitech does have a super customer support

You could always suggest earplugs...
