Question about Microsoft IntelliMouse
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?

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.

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.
