Hello all :D,


I've got a weird question. Recently I broke my Razer '’deathadder essential'’. No big deal, im looking for a new mouse i can buy from Razer. But here it comes, my mouse settings were always in Razer synapse, but since my mouse is so broken it doesn't get recognized. But i just want to know what my old DPI was, currently im playing on my backup mouse and waiting for my new one. If you connect another razer mouse you can like use a backup, but since im using my spare i can't. Who knows the answer to this special question :) ?


Greetings Jornt

your broken mouse is not being recognized by Razer Synapse, it can be challenging to retrieve the exact DPI setting. However, there are a few possible solutions you can try:

  1. Check your mouse's manual or packaging: Some Razer mice include information about the default DPI settings in the manual or on the product packaging. You may find the DPI range listed there.

  2. Search for product specifications: Look up your specific mouse model on the Razer website or other reliable sources. The product specifications page might provide details about the DPI options available for your mouse.

  3. Contact Razer support: Reach out to Razer's customer support for assistance. They may be able to provide you with the default DPI settings for your particular mouse model based on its serial number or other identifying information.

  4. Experiment and adjust settings: In the absence of the exact previous DPI value, you can experiment by adjusting the DPI on your new Razer mouse until you find a sensitivity that feels similar to your old setup. This will require some trial and error, but it can help you get closer to your desired DPI setting.

Remember that DPI is a personal preference, and the exact value may not be critical. With some adjustment and fine-tuning, you should be able to find a DPI setting on your new Razer mouse that suits your needs and feels comfortable.

Good luck with your new mouse, and I hope you find a DPI setting that enhances your gaming experience!
