Are Razer products available in PS/2 versions? Can I use the products with a USB to PS2 adapter?
Razer products are only available and supported in USB mode only. There are no plans to release a PS/2 version, and they will not function properly using a USB to PS2 adapter.
How can I test my Razer Mouse to be sure that the buttons are assigned and working properly?
Open the Customizer and assign button 3 to the number 3 on the keyboard, 4 to 4, etc. Open Notepad in Windows and click the corresponding buttons to test if they’ve been binded correctly. If the bindings are not working with a specific game, please contact the game publisher. If it does not work at all, please contact our Customer Support team.
How do I maintain my Razer Mouse for optimum performance?
Once a month we recommend you unplug the mouse from the USB port and clean the lens below the mouse with a soft cloth or cotton swab. Use a little warm water but no soap or harsh cleaning agents. To get the ultimate experience in movement and control, we highly recommend a premium mouse surface from Razer. Some surfaces can cause the mouse feet to wear excessively and rapidly.
How does Razer measure the  polling rate (ultrapolling)  and response rates of their keyboards and mice?
Razer uses digital scopes and USB analyzers connected directly to the motherboard  to obtain real and accurate measurements of polling rates.
I cannot find my Razer mouse or keyboard in Windows Device Manager under "Mice and other pointing Devices"
Razer mice and keyboards are not typically listed under the "Mice and other pointing Devices" section of the Windows Device Manager. They should be listed under "Human Interface Devices.”
I cannot get the On The Fly sensitivity function to work on my Razer mouse. How do I set it?
If a button has been assigned to "On-The-Fly Sensitivity," pressing and holding the assigned button down while moving the scroll wheel up or down will produce a bar on the lower right hand corner of your screen allowing you to adjust your sensitivity settings.
My mouse cursor is not moving.
Please try cleaning the sensor lens with a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and let it dry for 5 minutes and try the mouse again. If it still doesn’t work, contact us here or call 1-888-697-2037.
What are Master Acceleration and Master Sensitivity Control?
Master Acceleration lets you assign the same sensitivity for both the X and Y axis. Master Sensitivity Control allows for fine tuning specific X and Y axis sensitivity.
What buttons can I register for Macros on Razer mice?
You can set macros to reflect the majority of keyboard keys except the Windows keys and enhanced function keys. Mouse button presses are not programmable to macros.
When I use fast-user switching to change between Windows accounts, my configuration of my Razer product is no longer active.
This is a general problem with fast-user switching. The configuration of the product is unique and set for the logged in user; once you switch users you will have to re-configure the product. There is no other workaround at this time.

How can I modify or disassemble my Razer product?
We cannot help you in modifying or disassembling your Razer product since that will void the manufacturer’s warranty on the unit.

The language selection is based on the driver version installed on the computer.  There is no option in the Customizer.  To correct this issue, uninstall the software and download the appropriate drivers from here.

My Razer peripheral will not work properly when used with a KVM switch.
We recommend plugging your Razer product directly into your PC.  KVM switches are known to cause interruptions in communications between devices and PCs.  If your Razer product works when plugged directly into the computer, then it is operating correctly and the issue is most likely due to the KVM switch.
My Razer product does not work at startup after a cold start, what should I do?
Make sure that USB ports are not in hibernation mode. Please go to your Windows “Device Manager” and click the + sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Click on any “Root Hub” and select “Properties.” Click the Power Management tab and ensure that “Allow computer to turn off this device to save power” and proceed to do this under each Root Hub.  Also, from the Control Panel and Power Options, select the Hibernation Tab and deselect “Enable hibernate support.”
My Razer product does not work correctly with a specific program or game. What should I do?
If you are experiencing issues with the Razer device in a particular application, test the device in another application to confirm if the issue is specific to that application. If the Razer device functions properly in another application then the program is likely the cause of the issue.  Please feel free to contact customer support here to report the issue and see if there are any fixes or workarounds for the issue.
One of the features of my Razer Product does not work.
If you’re unable to find an FAQ article that helps resolve the issue, please contact our customer support team here. User guides and product manuals are also available on the Support page.
What are some examples of a “Proof of Purchase” to provide when initiating an RMA?
A valid proof of purchase is defined as a dated sales receipt from an authorized Razer Reseller. The receipt must show the product description and price. Invoice slips and e-mail order confirmations can be considered on a case-by-case basis.
What is the difference between "driver" and "firmware" updates the Razer Support Site?
Drivers are installed onto your computer and allow your computer to communicate with your Razer product. Firmware updates are hardware level code to install directly onto the Razer device that can update, fix, or change functionality of the product.
Where can I find drivers for my Razer product?
Please click here to find all the latest drivers.
Why does Razer require a proof of purchase?
Razer must verify that the product is within the specified warranty period and that it was purchased from an authorized reseller. Products purchased from unauthorized dealers are often used, counterfeit, re-boxed, defective or gray market goods. These units may also not be designed and packaged to work in your country and may not meet all legal and safety requirements.  Razer will not be able to honor a warranty on products purchased from an unauthorized dealer or that are out of the warranty period.  If you purchased product from an unauthorized reseller, all support and warranty issues should be directed to that reseller.
