I do not know the model number of your cordless mouse or if it has a drive ball. If it has a ball , rumove the boottom to drop out the ball then remove tjhe lent and dirt from the two rod that the ball drives. If it is the non ball type , I don't know, sorry.

If you are using windows, you should find "Mouse" in Control Panel where you will find options to configure mouse buttons. Enable the scroll wheel or something similar.
The "scroll wheel" is mechanical with sensors. Wheel has holes where light passes through it and sensors to convert motion either scroll up or down. If that sensor is no longer working, repairing it is more tedious (not a good idea).
Anyway, have you tried a different mouse (borrow from a friend)? Just to check if this is not an issue with your computer.
Did you install the mouse driver they provided? If so, there should be a SetPoint Settings item in your system tray. Open it and check the Pointer and Scroller Settings and try adjusting the Scrolling Size setting.
Go to your control panel of the computer. Click on the tab "Change mouse whell settings" If you do nto find such tab then search for that tab by puttin word "mouse" in the search box. There you can change scrolling setting. If it doesn't work then remove the wire of your mouse, shut down computer. Insert the wire and restart computer. This will surely work. If not then contact I'll give you other remedy.
If it really _has_ a ball, the rollers inside the ball compartment get clogged with gummy matterial & needs to be cleaned thoroughly - also sometimes the dirt & dust need to be blown out as they can cover the light sensors
I have a similar symptom, that is, apparent loss of scroll ring functionality as homercles1 noted, but in fact the scroll ring functionality gets toggled between horizontal scrolling and vertical scrolling as Rithas has noted. A window that is not wide enough to require horizontal scrolling will give the appearance of loss of scroll ring functionality when the scroll ring is in horizontal scroll mode. Likewise, a window that is not tall enough to require vertical scrolling will give the appearance of loss of scroll ring functionality when the scroll ring is in vertical scroll mode.
Solution that worked for me:
My upper right-hand button is defined as "Allow Horizontal Scroll" and by clicking this button, the scroll ring function toggles between horizontal and vertical scrolling. In fact, what can appear to be a nonfunctional scroll ring in some windows is very useful when moving around in large windows.
Hope this comment will be useful to you.
