Razer DeathAdder Left-Hand Edition Support
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.
My Razer mouse is out of warranty and is not working. Is there any way it can be repaired?
Razer products are designed to work well beyond when the warranty has expired. However, If you feel your mouse is having issues we first suggest trying the mouse on another computer to insure the issue is with the mouse and not something within the computer system. If you have narrowed the issue to the mouse itself there is not really a cost effective repair center that would be able to assist you. Razer does make available some basic external spare parts at the Razer Store, but we are unable to supply any internal parts or repair guides.
You can clean the mouse sensor using a Q-Tip lightly coated with rubbing alcohol and then letting the sensor dry for 5 minutes before attempting to use it. It is rare, but a light shot of air from a can of compressed air can sometime free debris that may be causing an issue.
I cannot install the new firmware for my Razer DeathAdder. Why?
Please be sure you have the latest driver installed before attempting to install the firmware. Please note the firmware for the 1800 DPI Razer DeathAdder is not meant for the 3500 DPI Razer DeathAdder
How do I change the language of Configurator?
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.
How do I request or purchase replacement parts for my Razer product?
I have a coupon/promotional/gift voucher code for the RazerStore. Where can I enter the code so I can use it to purchase products?
From your shopping cart page on the Razer Store, please check the box labeled “Enter Promo Code.” Enter the code into the box and click “Apply Code.” The total price after should reflect the discount.
I recently placed an order on the Razer Store and it still shows my order is "In Process". When will my order ship?
We are sorry if there are any delays in processing your order. The product may be out of stock or the order may be under protection/fraud review. Please don’t hesitate to check your order status at the RazerStore page by entering your information at the Order Status page.
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.
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.
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.
Since updating to Windows 10 Razer Synapse does not detect my device and show the correct product configurator
If you encounter this, please perform Synapse update through Settings >> Check for Updates. If the updates not able to run or Synapse not able to load, please uninstall Synapse and download the latest Synapse Framework from Razer support site.
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 at http://www.razersupport.com/contact-us/ 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.
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.
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.
Will my Razer USB PC product work on a console (Xbox360, PS3, etc)? It has USB ports.
Our PC USB products are meant for PC use only and we do not support using them on a Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 console.
Does the Razer DeathAdder 3500 feature drift control?
The 3500dpi Razer Precision 3.5G infrared sensor does not support any drift control.
How do I tell if I have a Razer DeathAdder 3500 or the original Razer DeathAdder if they look so much like each other?
A quick way to tell is to look at the cable. The Razer DeathAdder 3500 has a braided cable while the original does not. Also, if you look at the bottom of the Razer DeathAdder, it clearly indicates whether the sensor is a 1800 DPI or 3500 DPI sensor.
What is the default DPI of the DeathAdder 3500?
The DeathAdder 3500 is shipped with the default DPI set to 1800 DPI.
What is the difference between the original DeathAdder and the DeathAdder 3500?
The DeathAdder 3500 features a braided cable and a 3500 DPI IR Sensor compared the original 1800 DPI sensor.
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 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.
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.
I have installed Razer Synapse, but now the Cycle Sensitivity Stages button doesn’t work!
Once you have installed Razer Synapse, you will have access to more DPI options and the Cycle Sensitivity Stages button will be temporarily disabled. Without Razer Synapse, the Cycle Sensitivity Stage button will allow you to switch between 800 DPI and 1800 DPI. You can take your mouse on the go and still game with either 800 DPI or 1800 DPI even when Razer Synapse is not available.
