Problem With Mouse


T

Tony P.

Hello,

I am using a Microsoft wireless optical USB wheel mouse. The mouse seems to
work ok but when I look in device manager, there are 2 mice listed. One is
an HID-compliant mouse and the other is shown as a PS/2 Compatible Mouse. I
am using a Dell laptop and wonder if one of these mice is actually referring
to the touch pad sensor on the laptop. I've tried uninstalling both mice and
then rebooting but after reboot, they both show up again. Also, there
doesn't seem to be a way to adjust the number of lines when using the wheel.

If they're there on reboot, I'd leave it alone.

Google search your wireless model number adding software as part of the
search. Maybe it needs to be installed to get you the lines.

Yes, several Touchpad style mice do use the PS/2 connections. Leave
it alone.

The PS/2 mouse is the touchpad, the HID-compliant is the wireless USB.
To adjust the scrolling options, the correct driver needs to be
installed. If the option isn't available in Control Panel> Mouse> Wheel
tab, then download and install the current driver for your wireless
optical mouse model, from the mouse manufacturer.
