Intellimouse Optical buttons can't be changed

Q: Intellimouse Optical buttons can't be changed

I have a totally new problem with my MS Intellimouse Optical. I have used this for some time (98, ME, XP) with no problems. I now have a new system - Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I have downloaded and installed the latest Intellipoint software (7) from Microsoft, and installed the Mouse. But...
- The Mouse is recognised not as an Intellimouse Optical, but an Intellimouse Web
- I cannot therefore change the side button settings on the mouse (via Control Panel>Mouse) from the default "Forward" and "Back", or the centre button either.
This is annoying. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a number of times, to no avail.

Does anyone know...??
(a) How to get Windows 7 to recognise my mouse as the proper type (Device Manager etc)....or
(b) How to hack the settings (XML / Registry / whatever) to change the default option, so the mouse does what I want it to without trying to change the buttons via the Control Panel.

Many thanks

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.)

Hi Walrus1963 and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

When you installed the driver, did you correctly select your mouse model from the dropdown list during installation? If not, uninstall the driver and reboot your machine. Now, reinstall the driver being careful to select the correct model when prompted. What is the model of your mouse?

As the title says, I would like to know the differences between MS Intellimouse Optical and MS Intellimouse Optical 1.1. I will buy one of those, and they have almost the same price. Thank you in advance.

Does anyone know if microsoft will ever release a Serial version of their IntelliMouse Optical? Yes, it's sad, I only have a serial port, and nobody seems to make mice that are compatiable with it(they're all USB and/or PS/2).

I'm not sure about this, but i think it'd be tehnologically impossible to make a Serial optical mouse. I don't thinik the Serial Port would be fast enough.

Hi all, my computer is all fine and dandy now. Yea! Except for one thing.. I just went out and bought an Intellimouse optical and I installed it. It works and all except the two little side buttons. In the quickstart guide it lets me choose the mouse as the Intellimouse Optical but it only tells about it. Then in the Intellipoint software v4.0 it doesn't have the option to choose intellimouse opt only intellimouse. I'm thinking of downloading v4.1 but it has LOTS of bad reviews. What do i do?

I have been using this mouse for about a year now. I was just surfing on the net today when the mouse froze and would not work (light at the bottom did not light up like usual). I usually connect it to the computer with a PS/2 converter and decided to unplug it from the converter and just plug it in the computer, using its original USB plug and it worked.

However after every about 15 minutes it stops working, every 15minutes I would need to unplug the mouse from the USB port and reconnect again. I have tried my other USB ports, all did the same. Everytime it disconnects on the right bottom it would pop up a message saying "Unrecognizable tool connected" something along those lines however when I do reconnect it it'll recognize it sayin the mouse model.

I was wondering is there a problem with the mouse or is it the computer? Anyway I can "fix" this problem? I'm broke at the moment haha and have no money therefore can't get a new mouse at the moment and this problem is annoying me.

Hi,

I bought Intellimouse optical yesterday. I installed the software. I prefer using Netcape
rather then the explorer. My mouse doesn't work that has the back and the forward on my
mouse. I clicked on explorer and It works. Which version of Netscape will I have to use for the
back and forward?

Thanks a lot,
 

A:Microsoft Intellimouse optical problem?

I have a Wireless Intellimous Explorer and all 5 buttons work in every program that uses a back function. A little advice: I don't use the forward button much, but do use the back. I changed the forward button to function as the close button... because I use that one a lot... works great. Back to your mouse... it is possible it doesn't work with netscape because microsoft made it... and you know how microsoft is. It really should work though, even if you are using netscape. Try upgrading to the latest version and maybe even upgrade your intellimouse software, if there is an upgrade. Also, make sure you have the correct mouse selected in the settings of your software. If you have the wrong one selected the regular left and right buttons should work without software because they are basic, standard functions.

Alright heres the story...

girlfriends comp won't load her wireless logitech mouse, I disconnect my optical explorer bring it over and let her use that until she buys her own. No problems works fine on hers. She gets her new one I bring mine home and reconnect it, boot up, umm no mouse...wha? Yeah me = angry.

So basically I've tried lots of junk, regedit stuff (may have missed a few files possible), updated intellipoint software, tried USB ports.

This is what has happened...it gets detected in the USB port however Win XP doesn't know what the device is...doesn't even know its a mouse.

The lights work, the camera light and the back one. So it doesn't seem to be the mouse. It worked fine on this system only 2 days ago.

Is it possible for viruses to spread to hardware peripherals like my mouse?

I've included pics from "msinfo32"...3 different shots...one showing I have no IRQ conflicts, another showing that I have an "ERROR" and the other telling me what my error is "Device Cannot Start"...real helpful...you'd think it'd tell me why.

My computer is an Alienware P4 1.7Gig...mouse worked fine 2 days ago on this computer and fine on my girlfriends recently bought Dell machine (don't have the exact specs on hand). Any help?

Recently I have tried to install my Intellimouse Optical USB and PS/2 Compatible mouse onto my dell computer(running with XP), replacing the Intellimouse 1.3A PS/2 Compatable mouse that came with the computer. I went into "Help and Support" and found the appropriate article to tell me how to remove mouse.

"IntelliMouse: The Mouse Pointer Moves Erratically or Does Not Respond with Windows XP (Q321122)"

After following the instructions I tried to install my optical and it still refused to work. One thing that I noticed is that some of the files that they told me to delete were'nt there in the first place. Would all the mouse need to be unpluged while i did this? I'm not sure if anyone could shed some light on what i did wrong with the info i'v given but any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same mouse and have never had any trouble in NT 4 with it.

Well, wait - I had one problem. I turned off the mouse icon in the system tray and my settings (double click for pusing the wheel in) stopped working. Do you have the icon turned on?

You say "after a while"... what does that mean? Are you sure it is based on time? It is more likely a software issue - you are running something else that is killing the mouse driver. You can test this by booting up and not doing anything - just let the machine sit for a few hours.

Hi! I'm running Windows XP Home and at the suggestion of an online friend I tried using TweakUI, version 2.10.0.0, to try to solve a minor log on annoyance.

That annoyance was the log on screen that asked me to click the user button before I could see my desktop each time I turned on my little hand-me-down laptop.

In TweakUI under Logon>Autologon I checked "Logn on automatically at system startup" and left the "User name:" field set to "Owner."

That worked to bypass the annoying logon on screen, but now the "Shut Down" screen has changed from the XP screen with the three red, yellow and green buttons, to the Win2K style Shut Down drop down box.

I don't care for that drop down box because it remembers my last choice, so if I choose "Restart" one time, then the next time try to shut down my computer I end up restarting it.

How can I get that XP three button shut down screen back.

Will in Seattle
a.k.a. "Clueless"

P.S. Is there a way to change my logon name for the Tech Support Forum from "Sleepless in Sea" to "SleeplessInSeatl"?

Undo what you did in Tweak UI. To solve your logon issue go to Start/Run and type control userpasswords2 and press enter. Uncheck User Must Enter User Name and Password to Use This Computer. press Apply, type in your password and press OK restart the computer.

Hello to everyone
I am new to these forums and I have come here for help

I installed some Mods for Oblivion and my directional keys Uparrow and leftarrow have some how ended up with multiple functions
Uparrow is also esc, F12, b,n and Windows key
Left arrow is also F2 and PgDown

Ive tried restoring my system, deleting/reinstalling drivers, modifying the registry and even third party freeware like AutoHotkey and Keytweak but nothing works
I just want to reset them back to being up and left (i use the directional keys,numberpad, right shift and right control for all my first person shooters and have to relearn with WSAD something I dont want to have to do)
I am even considering getting another keyboard but somehow I dont think that will solve the problem. I deleted the System32 entries for my keyboard and it stopped functioning altogether. I unplugged and plugged it in again and it set up the system32 (installed generic drivers there and then ) and the keyboard functions again but my problem remains

Please help me if you can. I dont know what else to try
Kind Regards and thanks in advance

A:HELP PLEASE Keyboard Directional Buttons changed

You messed everything up by adding in the Mods. Mods are never recommended for anything. You may have corrupted system files. Uninstall the program and all mods. Then check the keyboard. If you have a microsoft keyboard...get intellitype and it might fix the problem. Modding is always bad.

Dont diss the forum. Alot of issues are resolved but we need time to try and find a way to solve them.

Hi all

I have installed an optical drive in my computer today and my drive letters were changed. I have changed them back to what they were and after restarting my computer I was unable to log to Windows 8.1 due to the OS being unable to find user profile (my user profile is moved outside of the system drive).

I restored my system to the point from before the new drive installation, but I still would like to change the drive letters around, as some of my software relies on specific directory paths with drive letters.

1. The state from before the installation of the new optical drive.

System (C:)
Virtual Box (D:)
Program Files (E:)
Passport (F:)
Storage (G:)
Program Files 2 (I:)
2. The state after installation of the new optical drive:

System (C:)
Virtual Box (D:)
Program Files (E:)
Optical Drive (F:)
Passport (G:)
Storage (H:)
Program Files 2 (I:)
3. What I'd like to have:

System (C:)
Virtual Box (D:)
Program Files (E:)
Passport (F:)
Storage (G:)
Program Files 2 (I:)
Optical Drive (any letter, preferably X:)

My user profile WAS located in G:\Users

It is now located in H:\Users and I can log in to Windows. After changing the drive letters around to 3. above I can no longer log in, as Windows is unable to find the user profile on H:\Users anymore.

I use EaseUS Partition Master 10.0 to change the drive letters.

Is there any way I can change the drive letters and make Windows aware of user profile path change?

Thanks.

I have a MS Intellimouse 1.2A PS/2 mouse that was returned to me because it did not work. I gave the guy another one, and I just threw this one to the side and thought that he didn't know what he was doing. So, I plugged it in today to see if it worked. Nothing happens. The PC I tested it on was using a generic PS/2 mouse and I turned off the PC and then plugged this one in and then turned it on. It booted fine and then came up with no mouse. I've never heard of a mouse going bad - has anyone else? It's less than a year old. Hardly any wear on it too. I was thinking of opening it up, but I guess I should just send it back and get another one. Can a mouse just decide to die one day? And... the PC that it died on is now using the same exact model and it's working fine. So, it's been tested on two machines and dead on both. Any suggestions? Or did this mouse just have a short life?

has frozen twice - I just wondered if it was wearing out - or what do you
think? Why would it suddenly freeze twice in one day?

Thanks in advance for any help! My logitech corded laser mouse has bad contact points, so I got a corded Microsoft Intellimouse to replace it. The problem is that when I try to install the drivers, it fully removes the logitech mouse, leaving me without a mouse at all. If I don't let it remove the logitech mouse, it won't install the drivers-catch 22. After that, it would not let me reinstall any mouse at all and I had to use system restore. The very first screen on the microsoft drivers is the agreement and I cannot mark that I agree if I don't have a mouse. If I could find a way to mark that, I'm sure I could use arrows, tabs and enter to complete setup, but tab just defaults to cancel setup and enter does not work because it won't fully highlight. The intellimouse isn't found by the computer after turning off and plugging it in either-tried that. I thought that, since my operating system (XP) is made by microsoft, the drivers might already be in there. No such luck. The instructions say the drivers must be installed first and I would like to do that, but I am stopped every time. I have tried reinstalling my dinosaur roller ball mouse that came with my system and it won't do that either.

I spent $50 on a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer because I wanted to go optical, and I wanted lots of buttons for gaming. After working fine for a good 6 months, about 2 months ago I started noticing my mouse would just stop responding. Even during a game. The red light on the mouse would even go out indicating a loss of power. After returning to Windows the problem would often fix itself. I would see a little USB icon with a comment that the device was having a problem. But I couldn't click on it, so I would have to start opening up the Control Panel. Before I could ever get the Device Manager open to look at this, the problem would fix itself. This is a USB mouse, so I tried a different USB port, but the problem persisted. Driver uninstall/reinstall... didn't work either.

I had just installed Windows on a fresh partition in this machine, so I didn't think it was a driver problem. The only driver EVER installed on this WindowsXP install was the most current version. I was starting to think there was just some USB problem on this motherboard.

In any case, I switched to my old PS2 mouse and focused on another project. Building a brand new machine. When I was done with the new machine, I plugged in the MS Mouse. It worked great, so I figured it must have been the other computer.

The other night, it started happening on my brand new computer. So, I looked on Microsoft's website to figure out how I could send this crappy thing to them for repair or replace... Read more

OS - XP Pro
Hardware - Wireless Intellimouse Explorer
S/W - Intellipoint 5.5

Mouse operates properly but i want to change the Wheel button to Double-click
When opening the intellipoint console I get the message "some mouse settings might not work until you connect a Microsoft mouse to a USB port..." Clicking OK opens the console and I change the Wheel button to double click but it does not work.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck. I am using the most recent version of S/W.

Ideas?
Thanks

Hi this is my first post here.
I have just installed a Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer under Windows ME and Im having many problems. After install it runs something called hidserv. With hidserv running, it unloads my other USB devices, my scanner and printer. Hidserv is loaded weather I use the instellipoint software that came with the mouse or not. The only way I can get my scanner and printer loaded again is to completly uninstall the mouse and software and delete the file hidserv.exe off my system. Then I can load my scanner and printer, all is fine until I pulg the mouse in again. When I reboot I get all kinds of errors and one that says the registry has problem which windows will correct and reboots. Upon reboot windows shows conflicts in the device manager for my USB scanner and printer. Hidserv is once again running.
I can see that the mouse conflicts with my scanner and printer anyone have any ideas on how to resolve the conflicts?

Thanks....
