wheel mouse/sound problems

Q: wheel mouse/sound problems

I get clicking and static interference when scrolling using my logitech wheel mouse and playing music at the same time. I have a SB Live 1024 soundcard with the latest drivers. OS = XP. Can anybody help?

Preferred Solution: wheel mouse/sound problems

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: wheel mouse/sound problems

Do you have Logitech Mouseware installed? If you do, try uninstalling it. I remember having similar problems aeons ago with my Mouseman+ and SB Live!.

Need any software that will let me choose what sound to play when I scroll the mouse wheel, besides Autohotkey, help hugely appreciated

A:Software to play a sound when scrolling mouse wheel?

You know what?, I use StrokesPlus:
StrokesPlus - Free Mouse Gestures for Windows XP/Vista/7/8
I used before JustGestures:
Just Gestures - Mouse Gestures for Windows
But prefer Strokes over JustGestures, for the reason that StrokesPlus has a portable option, and I prefer it that way. Any of these programs let's you customize the entire mouse functionality. Now, about the sound, StrokesPlus it's more customizable than JustGestures, but it requires some knowledge of LUA scripting, so what you want may be accomplished (plus more mouse functions), but may be complicated. I don't know if this helps, but I recommend you these anyway.

It could be the mouse itself.
When I try to zoom in our out or scroll pages down or up, the mouse wheel is acting strange. Let's say when I try to scroll up it goes down and a half second later it goes back up... and then it restores it's location to wherever it was. Like I never even used the wheel. Driver problem or the mouse itself? It can't be the mouse because I bought it a few days ago.

I have a new mouse.
The middle button will only scross and tilt.
And wont press.
Like in games where you can move the screen.
And on Internet Explorer where you can click the wheel in and make a new tab appear, or delete one.
It's just really annoying having to do things the long way. Hope you can help.

I got an optical mouse with a scroll wheel for Christmas last year and the scroll wheel won't work on anything (IE, Compuserve, Netscape).
It has no brand name anywhere on the mouse so I can't look for a new driver. It came from Office Depot and it has no disk/CD. When I plugged it in it did not load anything else and I tried Add/Remove Hardware, but it didn't find anything new. Is there anything else I can do?

My problem is that occasionally, when I click or scroll my mouse, my computer acts as though the "CTRL" button is being held down. This problem will occur for a few minutes, then it will go back to normal, then become a problem again. So what happens is all of a sudden I will be scrolling my mouse all the font on the screen will increase or decrease or it will scroll forward and backwards between previously viewed webpages. Also when this is happening, my typing will be messed up as well. If I were to hit the "p," the print menue would pop up. It will also type in all caps and if I try to type a "7" for example, it will come up as an "&." And when I click the mouse in a paragraph of text online, it will just highlight the entire paragraph of text. I don't know if this will help but it usually happens right after the top bar of my web browser (the one with the maximize, minimize, and close window button) goes light grey. Normally, when you are at a web page, this is a dark grey and if you get a pop up, the background window will go to a light grey color. So this problem usually happens when my window acts as though there was a pop up, but their really wasn't. I had this problem a couple weeks ago and I had installed a pop up blocker a couple days before that. I uninstalled this blocker and my computer had been fine for the last couple of weeks. Now all of a sudden it is doing it again. I have not downloaded any pop up block... Read more

A:Mouse Wheel and Clicking the Mouse makes my screen go wacky!

Keyboards are very cheap, try a new one and save yourself lots of grief. Chances are the matrix circuit has some foreign goop on it that's conducting just well enough to make certain keys seem to be pushed, especially under varying humidity conditions.

The mouse is only doing what mice do when the certain keys are depressed so it's probably not at fault.

You could try blowing the keyboard out with compressed air but I wouldn't waste too much time on such a low dollar item.

Good luck.

My mouse wheel doesn't work in IE 6.0 (on WinXP) unless the mouse cursor is actually over the window. When the mouse is over the window, it scrolls normally, but when it's off (even if IE is still the active application), it doesn't scroll. My mouse wheel scrolls other programs even if the mouse cursor isn't actually over the window (like Word), so why doesn't it work for IE? Any way to turn this on? I don't have anything like X-Active turned on or anything like that. It's not a serious problem, but it is kind of annoying, so if anyone knows the answer, please let me know, thanks.

A:Mouse wheel doesn't work in IE unless mouse is over the window

I don't know the reason why, but I believe it's normal. My mouse wheel also only works when in IE if the cursor is over the window.

Hi Folks,

I find this strange.. that when I use rpd from my win7 Pro PC to my XP-Pro PC the wheel on the mouse will not work.
The mouse works and everything else but not the wheel.

It must be win7 because if I log in Xp to Xp it works.
I tried another Win 7 PC to XP-Pro same thing!

I'm using a 98se. I don't even know who made the mouse; Logtech I think. AN optical, ball-less. The wheel stopped scrolling. I know it doesn't always scroll on every page, but now it doesn't scroll at all.
Must be a setting somewhere that got changed.

I had gotten another mouse at the same time--on sale. The wheel doesn't function on either one, so it had to be a setting somewhere.
Hmmmm. Anyone have any suggestions where to look? In the meantime I'll be looking.

As soon as I installed the Mouse Suite of the IDM version of the optical mouse I'm using, things have changed with the wheel.

Scrolling with the wheel in excel spreadsheet causes it to scroll right and left and not up and down. Print Preview scrolls only even numbered pages.

The wheel tab in Mouse suite only presents options ofr autoscrolling and scrolling speed adjustment.

So I need up, down scrolling and all pages print preview not only odd numbered pages.

Now I can't change DPI mouse resolution with dpi button (it minimizes app window now), also with scroll button i can change ONLY sound volumne.

I reported issue to Hama support, but no response so far.

Alot of times when i am using my mouse wheel it goes up before it goes down, or will not work at all.

I'm on winxp home using the built in drivers. My mouse is an hp that came with my computer.

Anyone else every had this problem, and anyone know how to fix it?

A:Mouse wheel annoyances

Yea, I have that problem with my mouse, but I think it's just because I don't scroll it up or down enough sometimes, so when I go to scroll again, it moves slightly up or down, triggering the scroll. Or maybe it's just a driver thing, have you checked if there are any updated drivers for your mouse?

Oh, and mine only does the up-before-down part, but it always works either way...maybe there's some dust inside it or something?

Alright, I'm hoping someone can help me here. I'm having some major problems with my MX518. Plain and simple the scroll wheel has a mind of its own. It constantly scrolls up and down, (mostly down, up sometimes) for no reason at all. Is there anyway I can disable the mouse wheel within Windows or some other software that I can use? Writing this here is a major pain, forget about gaming.... my weapons constantly switch on there own because of the scroll wheel. Any help is much appreciated.

EDIT: I forgot to say i thought maybe it was a USB port problem, but i tried another port. didn't help.

I have a Logitech USB optical mouse and all of a sudden the wheel stopeed working. it was working fine one moment and then it wasn't. Any suggestions?

A:USB mouse wheel not working

go into the mouse settings and change the action of the wheel to see if it works for a different action, if it does reselect your original action.
If that doesn't work, uninstall the logitech drivers from add/remove programs and reboot. Windows will have drivers for the mouse so it will still work. Does the wheel work with windows drivers?.(it may have a different action to the one you picked but something should work with it)
If it does then re-installing(if you want) the logitech drivers should sort it.
If it doesn't then it must be the mouse. Try it on another computer to be sure.

Hello again 7 Forums!

Just recently, my trackball was acting funky, so I took out the trackball, plugged in the new BTC Optical Mouse (Just a basic 2 button mouse with a mouse wheel) my dad had sitting in his room...and the mouse wheel won't scroll when I try to scroll with the wheel! If I click the mousewheel, it will move whatever it is scrolling.

Nothing will scroll, and I don't know why!

Not even items outside of the web browser.

Anyone got any ideas?

A:Mouse Wheel Will Not Scroll

One place to visit is in the Control Panel>Mouse section where you go over to the Wheel tab and try adjusting one or more of the settings and click the apply button to see if any immediate change is noticed.

In the Device Manager there which you might want to visit first you look under "Human Interface Devices" as well as the "Mouse and other pointing devices" items to see if the replacement mouse has been detected properly. It does seem odd however that the scroll wheel wouldn't work automatically unlike what you would see when swapping for a mouse with programmable buttons where you then need more then just a mouse driver but the software that goes with it.

When I tried to install it with software floppy disc I could not and the computer even went into safe mode. I told the program it was a serial mouse.

Well, I'm afraid I don't have good news for you.

There is no "generic" adapter for that. You have to get one made for your mouse. One made for another brand is likely to not work (as you have seen).

I have occured a problem recently with my scroller wheel located in the middle of my mouse. It seems as if something has hijacked the mouse scroller when I am browsing within IE 6. Whenver I scroll down a page with the mouse scroller, it takes me back to previous web pages I have already explored, instead of doing its job and scrolling down the page. It never did that till recently. I have always been able to scroll down pages in IE with no problem. Could this be a hijacker virus or something else??

Anyway, i bought a new Logitech LX3 at the weekend, great thing, but the scroll wheel is odd.
When scrolling down, the movement is erratic and slow, and in Oblivion, I have 'clicking in' set to 'Cast' but it also zooms out my character.
Movement up is slightly better but still quite erratic.
I removed the Logitech software but that didnt make a difference.

Hello people, thank you for taking the time to help me with my issue, lets get right into it.

I have a Razer Mamba Tournament Edition Mouse and for some strange reason every time I scroll up it jerks down and when I scroll down it jerks up.

I made sure to check if smooth scrolling was enabled and it was, even tried disabled and no noticeable difference, for all I know it could be broken but that's very unlikely considering its about a month old and there is no mishandling of it. [rage/slamming of mouse]

3) Did you install any new hardware about the time the problem started?

and a few suggestions.

Try going into "My Computer, Properties, Performance, Graphics" and lowering the slider bard down a click to see if it helps.

I'm not sure if this problem is related to my Firefox and Thunderbird or Win10.
The wheel on my mouse acts normally on other applications, but in Firefox or my emails through Thunderbird, turning the wheel jumps forward a screenful at a time rather than a controlled scroll. I've tried a different mouse with the same result.

My wife has an almost identical computer, the same version of Windows, Firefox and Thunderbird and doesn't have the problem.

Alright, so I just built a new desktop and have Windows 7 running on it.

I got a Microsoft Wireless Media Desktop 1000 keyboard and mouse combo to use on it. So far it works great - with one issue. When I view an image in Windows Photo Viewer, if I scroll up once, it zooms in by a HUGE amount, somewhere around 600% magnification. It never did this with my old mouse, and this is really annoying as it's completely impractical and I don't ever need to zoom in that far.

Thinking it was IntelliPoint's fault, I uninstalled that, and the problem persists. It works a bit better as a generic HID compliant mouse though... since IntelliPoint removed the scroll settings - so I couldn't tell it how many lines to scroll at once. And it set the value to 11, yeowch!

Does anyone have any experience with super-zooming on the photo viewer and what I might do to fix it?
