For some reasons, I decided to get a new mouse which should be accurate while working on my PC.
So I got A4Tech’s X7 series mouse [X-718]. I then decided to change the mouse polling rate as I saw that many gamers online who suggest to do this to improve the accuracy of their mouse while playing games.
So I started to search for how to change polling rate on the internet. I found few very useful tools like: Mouse Rate Switcher, Mouse Rate Checker etc.
The first tool can change the polling rate to 250Hz or 500Hz or 1000Hz. And the second one is used to see the polling rate that you currently have.
I tried to change the polling rate via this simple tool, but it failed. I then searched and found many other tools to do the same job. But all of them failed to change the polling rate for my X-718 A4tech mouse.
I even tried to change the polling rate manually but it didn’t work. I then tried another mouse with my PC and I was surprised to see its polling rate changed without any problems.
I then attached X-718 to my brothers PC who has 500Hz polling rate, but X-718 showed 125-127 Hz polling rate.
I then realized that we cannot change the polling rate for A4Tech X-718.
Reason ? I have no idea about it.
But even without changing the polling rate, this mouse works fine.
