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.)

When I use a mouse, I want to use it with my left hand, which means I want the mouse buttons reversed--right button is primary, left button is "right-click."  I can set that up just fine.  But when I don't have the mouse with me and I'm using the trackpad and its click zones, I want that to behave normally, with a left click being the primary. I feel like I had this set up pretty well with my last laptop, which was a Dell with Windows 7.  Now I have an X1 Carbon (3rd gen) with Windows 8.1, and I can't seem to make it work.  I've tried installing the software for the Microsoft wireless mouse that I use.  But I haven't found a combination of settings in Windows + the MS Mouse utility that give me what I want, so I end up having to just go into the setting and swap the buttons every time I plug/unplug my mouse. Am I just weird (other than being left-handed)?  I guess I can just use the mouse right-handed, but I like to swap so I'm not wearing out my wrist on one side.  Anybody else have this setup working for them?  Thanks.

A:How to reverse mouse buttons for a mouse but not for the trackpad

So to anyone who may have been curious about this, I think it just took some time to adapt to the new hardware, because I don't really have a problem anymore. I have my mouse set up for left-handed use at work. The trackpad is still right-handed, but because it doesn't actually require clicks like my old one did, I've gotten used to just single-finger tapping for left button clicks and two-finger tapping for right-button clicks. I just hadn't used a "magic" pad with all the fancy functionality before, and now I've got it doing what I want without having to change any settings.

My mouse has suddenly reversed buttons it is an HP mouse so my right click button does what my left one should be doing  I have no idea how this happened Can u help

A:Mouse buttons reversed

Hi, The easiest way to solve this may be to run Windows System Restore.  If you have Norton Internet Security installed, you will need to disable Nortons Tamper Protection as shown in Step 2, on the link below. http://us.norton.com/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20091112171719EN&ln=en_US Once you've done this, shut down the PC.  Windows System Restore is usaully best run in Safe Mode.  Tap away at f8 as you start the PC to enter Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and hit enter.  When this has loaded, from the Start Menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and launch System Restore.  Pick a restore point before the mouse buttons swapped funtions and then proceed with the restore process.  When complete, Windows will reboot as normal. If the above doesn't help, post back with the full Model No. of your notebook and the operating system you are using. Regards, DP-K

I got a Trust mouse, about a year old. It worked perfectly on my previous Vista laptop (HP), but for some reason the same drivers won't install on my new laptop (Acer).

Now for some reason, the left button behaves like the right button, and the right button like the left. Third, fourth and fifth button work as normal though. Fourth and fifth are on opposite side and are not flipped.

Left and right button on my laptop work as they should.

Any suggestion on how to fix this?
Will any drivers for any mouse with 5 buttons and tilt scroll wheel work?
 

A:Mouse buttons flipped

If you right click the screen and select "mouse". Under "Buttons" the first item allows you to swap over the buttons. Is this what you are lookinfg for?

The following is a problem other people on here have experienced, but in most cases no solution was found and the solutions I have found on google do not apply to my case - at least not without tweaks. I am pretty sure I will need someone with extensive knowledge about drivers or the windows registry in order to ever be able to fix this myself. Unless of course Lenovo/ALPS decide to take responsibility for their hardware design.If you can help me, thank you tons. I love every other part of my new notebook, and if imprecise mouse movement would end up screwing with my experience on it forever, that would be a pity. The issue I have is that my/the Flex 2-15 20405 has a touch pad where the keys are part of the motion-sensitive touchpad surface. Gliding the finger over them will move the cursor. The obvious reason why this is problematic is that the cursor moving while clicking causes the clicks either to miss, or to hit something that the cursor did not originally rest on when the button was meant to be pressed. Meanwhile, the ability of moving the cursor *on my buttons* serves absolutly no purpose whatsoever to me.[Sidenote: I think Alps aleady did their part to start making the problem less of an issue. If all gestures are deactivated, and my index finger is resting where it moved the cursor, then I can use my thumb to press the buttons without causing any movement, because the finger above the keys takes priority in controlling the cursor. That is pre... Read more

When I left click on an icon on the desktop it acts as if it was right clicked, but I cannot get the left click action to start the program. This is the case even with a wireless mouse plugged into a USB port as well as the two sets of mouse buttons on the laptop. Sometimes the pointer even freezes up, but not always. Upon initial startup the mouse buttons work normally, but within a minute or two the issues begin. I have uninstalled the drivers for the USB (stack) and the mouse and keyboard. I have done a system restore to an earlier state. I have gone to Windows Update and made sure it is up to date.I also have two HDD for the same laptop and I got it to act up with both HDD, but again this is a bit sporadic. Sometimes it works normally. Doesn't seem to matter what the load is on the CPU or particularly what programs are running. I suspect a conflict, but not sure where. On one of the HDDs the number of programs installed is very brief so I have thought of removing them in the hopes of narrowing down the culprit. Am about ready to reformat as a last resort, but I'd really like to find the reason and not just go around it. It happening on two separate HDDs really has me scratching my head, but cannot think what hardware malfunction would cause this. Any ideas?

Hi,

I have just bought a mouse (A4 X-748K) and I'm having problems with the 4th and 5th buttons. When I try to map them to a custom control in a game it says that I have pressed the 'left alt' button. I have not done this in any custom mapping tool so I am confused as to why it is saying this. The buttons work in web browsers to go back/forward.

Any ideas? They would be greatly appreciated.

A:How to assign mouse buttons

Was there any documentation that came along with the mouse?

This is a 15page PDF online manual that seems to cover what you need:

5. Button Assignment Panel*
6. Mouse Properties Panel*
7. Illumination Panel*
* Panels are closed by default; press the panel tab to open.

And it covers new profiles and macros.

This link explains how to find the user guide for the SteelSeries Engine: FAQ - SteelSeries - Where do I find the user guide for the SteelSeries Engine?

There are youtube videos that might be helpful.
I am hoping of course that you do have the SteelSeries Mouse.

How can I program the buttons so left+right=middle..?

If you have Vista x32 then, it might support the trackball mouse but if you have Vista x64, than that's where the problem may be.

Have you tried setting this on the Vista Control Panel option by any chance? I doubt it will work but, perhaps worth a try.

I have a Inspiron 1500, model 3558, with a touchpad oddity. Only about the leftmost ½" of the mouse button acts as a left mouse click. The rest of the button acts as a right click. Since I left-click probably 100 times as often as I right-click, this is very inconvenient. Dell Tech Support was completely useless when I called in. Does anyone know how to adjust this setting, if it is adjustable?

A:Touchpad mouse buttons

You could try reloading the driver for the 3558 touchpad here and then try checking the settings using touchpad properties, but I am not aware of any settings that could change this.On your system do you currently have warranty? It might be that the palmrest needs to be replaced.Best regards,Brad

W530 laptop with latest recommended Synaptics driver (19.0.17.115), Windows 10. I occasionally play games on my laptop using the touchpad and mouse buttons. Thanks to these forums, I learned that I needed to disable PalmCheck in order to be able to use the touchpad at the same time as the keyboard. Everything works great for my (default admin) account. I set up an account for my son to use so he could play Minecraft with his brother. Though I have more than quadruple-checked the Ultranav settings from my son's account, the mouse buttons refuse to operate when a key is pressed. Interestingly, the touchpad itself DOES respond, it's just the mouse buttons (both R & L) that insist on waiting until all keys have been released. So in summary:* Works fine on my original > 4-year-old account that I migrated from W8 years ago;* Does not work on a separate account I created a couple of months ago. Any idea where to begin with this one? This smells like a funky setting in the registry for my son's account.

Running Windows 7, an Agama m-355t wired mouse.

The drivers install fine, but the 4th and 5th buttons (on the sides of the mouse) don't have anything mapped to them by default. The software that came with the mouse to program it appears to possibly not be installing properly, or possibly just be badly-written, because it doesn't do anything. I've installed it off of the CD, uninstalled it, installed it off the Agama website, same thing happens every time.

Is there some way I can manually go into my registry or settings (the 'Mouse' settings on the control panel are no help) and map the mouse buttons? Even to just map them to something random so that X-mouse Button Control can intercept it.

If you did that you just may have a bad mouse. I'd plug inth eold one and see how it responds.

I have a Steelseries Ikari Opitcal Gaming mouse. It consists of left, right, 2 more buttons near the thumb area, the scroll wheel (which can be clicked, middle mouse button) and another button just behind the scroll wheel which changes the sensitivity between low and high for the mouse itself.

I have installed the latest Ikari drivers, but let me detail when the problem arose and what I've done as well as what I'd like the final result to be like:

The problem first came up while playing a game, Magicka. As something worth mentioning, comodo antivirus announced that the game wanted to inject input8.dll file or something of the sort. I naturally allowed this, expecting no problems would happen. This may be a key point to the problem, although I can't be too sure.

While playing the game, the middle mouse button stopped working, and that's a fairly core aspect of the game, and for some reason the keybinds can't be changed, not sure why, but oh well - I'm stuck without a middle mouse button and unable to do much about it...

The sensitivity changer is out of the picture as well, sadly. I can't switch my sensitivity back to high, it's stuck by default on low.

Another thing I noticed while this problem was going on was that when i started up i could move hte mouse but click nothing. Even though I'd move the mouse over the taskbar icons in Win7, the icons wouldn't highlight, and the mouse, aside from moving the pointer was virtually useless. I had to open Task Manager to ...

Hi, I did a brief search for similar topics but couldn't find anything (So i apologise if this has been covered elsewhere).

I have recently bought a Logitech G7 Wireless Mouse. I have installed their "Setpoint" driver software and the mouse performs as expected around Windows and in Web Browsers.

I have made a couple of adjustments to the default settings, such as having one of the Resolution buttons configured as a next button whilst in Firefox.

My problem is that in games (Counter-strike, F.E.A.R), when I am configuring my controls I am unable to assign the Wheel Mouse Button or the Fourth Button (Left side of mouse) to any in game action.

Running WindowsXP Service Pack 2.
Fresh Install, No previous Mouse Drivers Installed.

---Update---
When i Disable the Setpoint software I can use the extra buttons. Is anyone familiar with this application and might be able to help me with this?

Any help or guidance you offer regarding this matter is most appreciated.

A little over a week ago I spilled some water on my Elitebook 840 G2.  I previously had an Elitebook 8470p and spilled water on it several times with no problems at all.  Ever since the spill, my C, D, P, 0 (zero), and ] keys no longer function (kinda sounds like the half-wit brother of c3p0). Also, all 4 mouse buttons don't work (left/right click for both the touchpad and the little pencil eraser mouse on the keyboard).  I can click by tapping the touchpad, and I can right click by tapping touchpad with two fingers.  I'm using a USB keyboard for typing. I have taken this thing apart, including removing the keyboard and the touchpad itself.  Checked it, reconnected it, no difference. My question(s): Suggested parts to fix this would be keyboard and touchpad?Is there a common denominator that would cause those particular keys to go out, along with the mouse buttons (ie, a particular circuit that is damaged)Is there anyway that replacing the keyboard will fix the touchpad? (like do the touchpad buttons have a circuit through the keyboard)?Although I removed the touchpad I never did attempt to get into the touchpad housing or remove the buttons - to clean inside it.  Would that be suggested?  If so, how can I remove the buttons and do that?Aren't these Elitebooks supposed to have spill resistant keyboards?  Thank you!

Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with Logitech wireless mouse here, running on Vista. While browsing today, mouse's wheel started zooming instead of scrolling, then keyboard wouldn't produce letters and would only open endless new tabs/various dialogs every time I touched a key. Selecting and deselecting with the mouse buttons also not functioning properly. If I minimize a window, I can't click on it and get it to come up again. Same if I've got multiple windows open; can't change the display order without closing the top window.

Restarting did not help and apparently I've got no restore points.

I finally got the typing to work again by repeatedly pressing left Shift with some force...but only for a few minutes. I keep having to redo it and it's not perfect. I have to hit certain keys kind of hard, selecting stuff just deletes it instantly, and there's some lag time between my typing and letters appearing on the screen.

It may be related that left Ctrl has been nonfunctional for a while.

Weirdly, everything's working PERFECTLY on the TSG pages. What's the deal?

Hi
Not real sure what you have going on, but I think I would start by checking the batteries in the mouse/keyboard. Also if you can, after the battery check,if you're still having problems, check out the mouse and keyboard on another computer to see if it's the computer or the mouse/keyboard.

I suggest installing the driver for the mouse.  You will have to choose the appropriate one from two choices; one for English speaking countries and one for other countries.  This problem can be caused by many things.  It is normally software related.  Installing the driver for the mouse is a good place to begin.  In some instances, it can be incompatibility with the game source code. Please click the "Thumbs up + button" if I have helped you and click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.

I've scanned with Malwarebytes, AVG and Kaspersky and while they found some malware and deleted it, the issue still persists. I've tried changing the mouse settings, still nothing. I've disabled the laptop mouse and plugged in a USB one, still the same thing.
 
Also, my PC seems a tad slower and some things can hang like, the taskbar along with the start menu or opened programmes top bar, until I Ctrl-Alt-Del and click anywhere on the screen.
 
All my browsers are affected by this too, probably because they think both mouse buttons are being pressed.

I'm running XP Professional with latest security updates. I'm also left handed, so it has always been my practice to swap the mouse buttons.. A few days ago I found that when I reboot or power on the computer after previously powering down, the o/s has forgotten that the mouse buttons are supposed to be swapped.

I'm using the standard Windows mouse driver with a Logitech USB optical mouse but I don't see how it could be a hardware problem.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
 

A:Swapped mouse buttons forgotten after reboot

You could try this,one of the things it will do is save your mouse settings,a handy app to have.Look under logon>settings and check box mouse.

It's from Microsoft and it's safe.

Hello all

I just built a PC for the first time this past weekend. Everything fired up and worked GREAT except for one thing. My Wireless Logitech MX3000 keyboard hot keys and the side buttons on my mouse no longer work.
I installed the Set Point software. I reset all the hotkeys and the side mouse buttons. But to no avail.

Any helpful hints would be appreciated. Here is the system I built:

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

NEC 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write Black E-IDE / ATAPI Model 7170A-0B

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ

NEC Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive

SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD403LJ 400GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP2b 1pk

OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI ATX12V 700W Power Supply

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

PNY VCG88GTS32XPB GeForce 8800GTS 320MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6600

EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
PS: In case it matters. The Mouse and Keyboard hotkeys did work on my prior PC.
 

A:Mouse & keyboard hot buttons stopped working

The first thing I'd try is uninstall & reinstall the drivers. Instead of using the disk to reinstall from, download the latest ones from the Logitech site.

Hi,

As left hander when I use a desktop I use the right mouse button as my primary button.

When using a laptop it's easier for me to keep the track pad buttons set with the left button as my primary button (it's nearest my dominant thumb!)

This hasn't been a problem until I got a win 8 laptop when it started to synchronize the settings on my latop to desktop and vice versa. This is a good thing in normal circumstances but for me it's a pain as I have to keep changing the setting depending on what machine I'm using.

Is it possible to disable the mouse synchronization whilst retaining the synchronization of other settings?

A:Stop the synchronization of mouse buttons between devices

It's okay, I found the setting in synch settings toward the botttom of the page.

My wife's Dell Inspiron Laptop suddenly started locking up when coming out of sleep mode. The mouse moves, but nothing else works including clicking either mouse button or any keys on the keyboard. I have changed the power settings to "Never" and now it does it after about 5 minutes if the computer is idle. As long as I am working on it, then it doesn't lockup.

Dell Inspiron 1545
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU
P8700 @ 2.53 GHz
2.50 GHz , 3.46 GB of RAM
Windows XP Service Pack 3

I have already done the following:

Changed the RAM with another Inspiron 1545.
Changed all Power Settings to "Never"
Run HiJackThis (Nothing pertinent)
Run Spybot, Ad-Aware, CCleaner, & AVG (nothing pertinent)
Not installed any new hardware (other than the RAM after this started happening)

Attempted to Defrag in Safe Mode and it will not get past 1% even after 48 hours!

Thanks for any and all help!

A:Keyboard and Mouse buttons unresponsive after being idle

Have you check device manager - properties - power management tab and allow the device to wake up this computer? Try reinstalling or look for the latest driver on Dell support site for the graphics chipset. Try removing currently used wallpaper and run a diagnostic test utility to check on your hard drive. You could also remove the recently RAM module to check on the difference.

My left and right mouse buttons are reversed. If i go into 'mouse' in the control panel there is the facility to reverse the buttons and it's already ticked, you can untick the box but can't apply or OK it. When I try that the mouse buttons cease to to anything although you can still move the cursor around. I suspected viruses, and have done several sweeps with Spybot, AdAaware, Norton, AVG. HJT CW Shredder. Nothing much found and its still doing it.

Help ... please.

First of, i want to thank you for stopping by, i am not really a computer type of guy so i maybe wouldn´t be able to describe my problem in details, but here´s the thing: I have issue with my mouse, how do i make my "mouse4 and 5" work but not do anything in particular ? Because only thing i use those two buttons are for gaming. It worked perfectly few days ago or so, so if there is something that would help me bind back to default (default key in the program does not fix the issue when gaming, {don't know how to test it outside games})

Included mouse software settings
I will be happy for even the most little help <3 thank you for reading, hopefully someone will help me

Hi, my mouse model is a Logitech Marathon M750 (Wireless).

I just got this mouse along with a keyboard in a mouse-keyboard combo I got off Amazon. The keyboard works great, completely functional, but the mouse, not as much.

The mouse's left click, right click, middle click, scrolling, etc., all work perfectly, but oddly, the cursor is not moving despite my attempts to move it. My previous mouse I had was also by Logitech, a M135/M125 (also wireless), with a fully functional cursor ability and button ability. I'm actually using that M135/M235 to post this.

This is the first forum post I have posted anywhere on tech support, because usually I get the problems figured out, but this has me baffled. Any ideas? Thanks in advance
 

A:Mouse cursor not moving, but the buttons work

Sounds like the mouse is faulty. If the buttons are working, you should be able to move the cursor as well.
