If you are playing Black Desert Online and your mouse has suddenly stopped functioning, there is no need for you to be concerned since you are not the only one to have this issue.
A number of gamers have complained that their mouse suddenly stopped functioning while they were playing, which can be quite irritating when you are in the midst of a crucial battle or a fight against a major character in the game.
Fixing BDO Mouse Not Working
- Checking The In-Game Settings
Next, check the in-game settings. This is a common issue with games where there are mouse controls that need to be turned on.
Open up the game’s interface, click on Settings and then go to the Controls section. Make sure there is a checkmark next to Mouse Sensitivity and that it is set at a level you’re comfortable with.
Click save and then close out of the in-game settings menu. You should now see your mouse cursor moving around again when you move your mouse within the game window.
- Adjusting the Graphics Settings
If you’re experiencing mouse problems with your game, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue.
First, verify your game files by right clicking on the executable file and choosing properties. You can then choose to verify or repair them.
If the problem persists after verifying or repairing the files, it might be worth checking if any of the drivers for your input devices (mouse, keyboard) are up-to-date. This can be done by going into device manager and doing a quick scan for updates.
If updating your drivers doesn’t work either, make sure that both your graphics card and operating system are up-to-date.
- Updating the Mouse Drivers
If your mouse suddenly stops working, the first thing to do is to make sure that you have the latest drivers installed.
You can find these drivers on your computer’s manufacturer website, or you can use the built-in Windows 10 driver updater. Once you have updated your drivers, restart your computer and try the mouse again.
If that doesn’t work, try unplugging any devices that are plugged into USB ports (such as a wireless keyboard or external hard drive) and see if it works then.
If it does not work after doing this, then unplug your mouse from the USB port and plug it into a different one on your computer. This should work if there is an issue with one of your USB ports and not with the mouse itself.
- Verifying the Game Files
The first thing to do if your mouse doesn’t seem to be working is to verify the game files. This will allow you to make sure that the game is installed properly, and if it isn’t, then you can install it again.
First, quit out of the game completely. Once it’s closed, go ahead and locate the Black Desert Online folder on your computer.
From there, find the client_bin folder and open it up. You should see a list of files there – click on each one and make sure that they’re all named correctly (ie BDO1 or BDO2).
If any of them are not where they should be or are named incorrectly, you may want to download them again from a legitimate source such as Steam.
