Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Am running Win7 x64bit and the Wheel on my mouse has developed a mind of it's own. Mouse is a Logitech G9x, have downloaded and installed the latest drivers but the problem is still there. When you scroll down it moves down for a couple of clicks and then goes up, other times it doesn't work at all. Have tried a different mouse but the problem still exists. Anyone have any clues how to cure the problem?
     
  2. Buy a new mouse.
     
  3. You can get a new mouse for less than a fiver, buy a new one you pikey.

    ps2 or usb connection? checked settings in control panel?
     
  5. Usb connection, have tried a new mouse and that does the same thing.
     
  6. So it's obviously not your mouse. (chances of two broken ones being used?)

    There are a couple of things that you can try, but have a go at this first.

    Click on the Windows start button to open the menu.
    Right click Computer.
    Click on Properties.
    Click Advanced system settings
    Click Advanced
    Click Settings (Under Performance)
    Make sure "Smooth Scroll list" box has a 'tick' in it. If it hasn't, then tick it.

    Apply and OK everything, reboot and let us know if it worked.

    Oh, if the "Smooth Scroll list" box is ticked, keep it ticked, and let us know.
     
  7. There is always the possibility that both are trout. Do they work on another machine?

    You don't replace a G9x with a Tesco Value jobby, you ******* heathens. It's mouse royalty!

  9. Try getting a cat. You're welcome
     
  10. I've had the same in the past, just plugged it into another USB port & it sorted itself out when it re-loaded the drivers.

    You always did strike me as a cat person...
     
  12. Are you up and running yet?
     
  13. Tis but a pretender to the crown, the RAT 7 is the undisputed king of mousedom!
     
  14. Gave it a dose of WD40, used another USB port, installed the drivers. Hey presto it works fine. WD40 is magic!
     
  15. Alternatively, using another port is magic.
