Computer (Mouse) Help, please.

Somehow....the center button on my mouse is acting up. It's done this before and I fixed it, but have forgotten how to do it. Here's the prob...

I have a left and right click button. Between the two is a center "roller" button which when clicked and rolled, allows the page to go up and down. It does nothing when I click it now. I don't know if it's a function that was turned off somehow. Or, maybe my mouse is just starting to malfunction. Anyone have any ideas?

THANKS!

If it's a programming problem i.e. feture that you turned off, Go to START> CONTROL PANEL> mouse... it should be in here somewhere...

otherwise, buy a new mouse....i guess

I have a very old mouse and it has always worked flawlessly. If it's not an optic mouse take it apart and look inside. if it is.. check your settings possibly even mouse driver. But if you haven't changed anything your mouse just needs replaced.

I went to the control panel last night, settings, and mouse controller. There was no option for the roller part on the mouse. I could switch the buttons on the mouse, do single click drag stuff, but nothing for the mouse. I gave up on it last night. Woke up this morning and turned on the puter....guess what.....it works fine now. Still, I'd like to know what the heck happened so I can fix it next time w/out having to shut it down. But, thanks for the hlep guys.

The mouse driver may have just not loaded properly at startup, sometimes...no, lots of times that happens to things...I wouldn't worry about it. Hey, Now you know that all you have to do is restart if it happens again!

Mouse malfunctions are common. My laptop often gets "stuck" in click mode, even though I never pressed that button. <sigh>

Just reboot, and "Blame Bill Gates." :-)

PS - you may want to update the software drivers, if there are any.

Many times Windows just "sees" the mouse, but the manufacturer may have special software that helps the mouse "do its thing" without the bugs.

Check it out. Cheers, Tag.

Doug Doug Doug,

Why could you not figure out your computer was telling you to turn it off, go hop in the car for a nice drive with Mrs. Doug and them come home for some lovin with with Mrs. Doug.


Some people never figure the things out their computer is trying to tell them.

I am trying to figure out why my keyboard will sometimes not let me type question marks. They end up being e's with little accents on them.

It is weird. And annoying

I know this an old thread but I would replace it with a new 2010 Camaro mouse from Roadmice. They have several colors to choose from. I bought one and it works great and looks really cool. Headlights light up when you click on the buttons. Check it out at: http://www.roadmice.com/
