IntelliMouse Setting Reset Everyday

I have a Microsoft IntelliMouse that is plugged into my HP Pavillion tx2000 laptop.. The cursor moves around the screen too slowly for my taste, so I reset the settings under the "Synaptics Pointing Device" icon on my toolbar... the problem is, I have to change the settings EVERY time my computer restarts. It won't hold the settings that I want. It's been happening since I got the new computer.. any advice?

SOURCE: unable to connect to the synaptics pointing device driver

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> Click "Device Manager" -> Find the item called Mice and pointing devices and click the + sign. If synaptics is listed right click and select Uninstall. After that completes go to the top of the Device Manager and select Action -> Scan for hardware changes...it should find the device and attempt to reinstall it and the driver.

SOURCE: unable to connect to the synaptics pointing device driver

I am assuming that the mouse has batteries installed in it and the CD was used to install the software program for the mouse.
Did you try Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

1. Go to the "Control Panel" and double click on the "Mouse" item.
2. Go through the tabs in the "Mouse Properties" window & find the tab where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another since it is based on the touchpad's drivers.
3. On that tab, check & make sure that your touchpad is disabled.
4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.

If you cannot find a tab to set up your touchpad, then your touchpad drivers might not be installed. In this case, you will need to install them first.

If the above does not work, then you might consider carefully opening your laptop and disconnecting the touchpad. Most laptops will run fine without it. However, beware that since all laptops are very different it might even then not be easy or possible to disconnect just the touchpad; it's possible that it's an integral part of the keyboard assembly, which means that you will be practically disconnecting both the touchpad & the keyboard.

If this either did not work, then you might consider replacing your touchpad (and/or) keyboard.

My Microsoft Intellimouse Trackball rolls but the cursor doesn't


the circular disk that surrounds the trackball and has a little raised part can be turned to left - take it off and ball will fall out- inside are 2 tiny black rubber wheels one to left and one south of that- clean with alcohol on a cloth 9 not soaked) - I scrap them with my nail going across & you'll see gunk come off. Slso turn it upside down & tap it so all dirt inside falls out. wipe all around inside with cloth. Then clean the circle that holds ball. It has to have no dirt on inside area. Clean & dry ball- put back together and make sure to turn the circlular disc till it points to the dot on top. If that gets turned just a little off center it will cause ball to go all over. I've had mine for years & won't part with it. Can't stand chasing a regular mouse around the desk.

I have a corded mouse on my PC which sticks and flys to the right


A corded mouse can be either an older style with a ball, or newer with the red light. I have found you can take the ball out and clean the rollers inside with tweezers, they eventually get gummed up with lint and such. If it is a red light, most often my problem is a dog hair or something blocking the light. Tweezers work.

MS Wireless IntelliMouse 2.0 pointer direction reversed (up/down)


Go into the control panel and click on the mouse icon and see if you can change to settings back to normal.

If not then check under your start menu and see if the intellimouse software is installed there and go into it to change the settings from there.

My cursor darts to a corner without moving mouse


do you have Word with that weird little paperclip helper? some computers have presets that make it (or your cursor) move out of the way so you can see what you're typing as that many people (not including me!) touch type while looking at the screen and the cursor being in the way is VERY distracting to them.

Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 Battery Problem


You say that this has been happening with a wired mouse as well?
In that case, you probably have a kind of virus/malware. Try this first:

Do a full system scan. You may have to temporarily disable/uninstall your current anti-virus if you have one already..
If not, try a system restore.
