Corsair utility engine not opening
You may encounter a problem with your Corsair utility engine not opening. It is a common issue that occurs in some computers. If this error message is happening on your computer you can fix it by deleting a registry entry that is related to the Corsair utility engine. To fix this error follow these steps:
If you cannot detect your device the first step is to check your USB ports. It may be due to a corrupt or outdated USB controller driver. You can check this by opening Task Manager and clicking on the Corsair Utility Engine. If the issue persists you can also try re-launching the Utility Engine. Alternatively you can try reinstalling the Corsair utility engine and try it again.
Corsair utility engine not detecting your mouse
If your Corsair utility engine is not detecting your mouse it may be due to a malfunction in the device’s BIOS settings. If your peripheral isn’t recognized by the utility you can try changing the BIOS switch on the back of the device. The device’s USB port must be set to the correct type. After making sure that it is plugged into the correct USB port the next step is to restart your PC.
If your computer’s wireless mouse is not detected turn off the wireless connection and change its frequency settings to 2.4 GHz. Open the Task Manager window and right-click the CUE process. You can then choose the Action option and click Scan for hardware changes. Once you’ve fixed the device try to launch the Utility Engine again. If your wireless mouse is still not detected you should replace the device.
Corsair utility engine not detecting fans
If you’re facing the same problem as many other users you might want to try reinstalling the Corsair Utility Engine. CUE is the software that allows you to control Corsair peripheral devices such as keyboards and mice. However this software can’t detect fans if they are not connected to your computer. In this case you can’t access advanced macros or RGB control. If you’ve done this you’ll need to reinstall CUE and your Corsair peripherals.
The most common solution for this problem is to restart the Utility Engine. This will clear temporary data and re-initialize the device. After this you should test your peripherals to see if they are working correctly. You can also try unplugging and replugging them. If none of the above methods work you should try a different solution. If you still can’t detect fans you should contact Corsair Support to resolve the issue.
