Question about HP Wireless Optical Mouse

1 Answer

Same HP device scrolls, but no direction move

I have a similar problem with the HP laser wireless mouse. It will scroll, but not move the pointer. I press the receiver button and the light comes on, and stays on..no blink; and then press the round button on the bottom of the mouse. I wiggle it around but it won't move. Then the light on the receiver goes out. The mouse will scroll and right-click menu..but that's it.
I've tried 3 different USB ports and two computers. What's next, send it to the circular file?

    Nope. The battery (it takes only one) is fresh.
    What's your next idea?

    The battery is fresh and new. Try again.

HP 2530p EliteBook - touchpad stopped working. Scrolling works except touch scrolling on right side of pad) and right button, but that's all. Wireless mouse works fine.


To access Mouse Properties, select Start - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound -Mouse.

Use Mouse Properties in Windows to customize settings for pointing devices, such as button configuration, click speed, and pointer options.

When ever i move my curser on the screen the the scroll button comes on how can i get rid of it




Troubleshooting a mouse that scrolls up and down uncontrollably depends on various factors. Possibilities extend from the class of surface to hardware problems or configurations.

Identification


A variety of laptop mice exist.

A mechanical mouse uses a hard rubber ball that rolls with any movement of the mouse.


An optical mouse uses an LED sensor to detect movement.

An infrared, cordless mouse requires and relays a signal to the mouse port found on the laptop.


The base of the trackball mouse remains stationary, while the trackball sitting on top of this mouse reflects all movement.


Function


A mouse depicts a device that controls the movement of the cursor or pointer on a monitor or display.


Product


Several reasons exist for a cursor to uncontrollably scroll up and down on a display.

Static electricity often initiates wild cursor reactions.

To solve this, use pre-moistened computer cleaning wipes to help control static electricity and clean electronic surfaces.


Bad batteries can trigger impromptu cursor movements in a wireless mouse.

Electrical interferences can also produce the scrolling effect. Radio, wireless or electrical objects may require removal from close proximity.

The mouse needs to stay in range of the receiver, meaning near the Laptop


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop


then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7


in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver


click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp


in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp



hope this helps

I have a HP pavillion DV6-1250us Windows vista home premium and i cannot get my mouse to scroll up or down? how do i fix this?


To move the pointer, slide your finger across the TouchPad surface in the direction you want the pointer to go. Use the TouchPad buttons like the corresponding buttons on an external mouse. To scroll up and down using the TouchPad vertical scroll zone (right edge of the touchpad), slide your finger up or down over the lines.

NOTE: If you are using the TouchPad to move the pointer, you must lift your finger off the TouchPad
before moving it to the scroll zone.

HP Pavilion vertical scroll bar resists pointer movement, moves erratically on its own


If you're using a ball mouse: Take the ball out and rub it on your jeans. Then clean the rollers while holding the mouse upright. Side to side motion will remove any gunk.
If you're using a laser mouse: Get a solid mouse pad. Repeating patterns (as in stripes or text and wood grain) cause mouse to get confused.

My mouse is plugged in, but is not moving?


There can only be 2 ways. Either receiver button first and then one under mouse or visa versa.

Mouse has a mind of it's own...often skipping across the screen without any assistance. Is there a patch available?


it might be due to scroll speed of mouse going bit high.
to adjust the same...click on start...control panel...mouse icon...mouse properties window would open... click on the pointers tab...adjust the pointer speed setting... this should help in fixing the issue.
