Question about Lenovo Thinkpad R61i Notebook PC

Open Question

Applications scroll to bottom and won't allow to return to top

I will be working in Word and I hit some key and my mouse goes to the bottom of the page and refuses to move up the page. If I open up outlook or excel it will be doing the same thing once I've done this. Only way I have found to fix is to turn computer off. Need a quicker solution.

I think I must be hitting some key or other, but don't know how to fix. Does anyone know how to solve this?

SOURCE: Scroll Function Doesn't Work

Just a followup to my June 27th post: I always use a mouse. The last two times the scrolling problem occurred, I tried using the touchpad to move the cursor to the scroll bar, then clicking the touchpad button as if selecting that position--and the scrolling problem disappeared for that session. I didn't have to reboot.

Usb mouse stop working



make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty

(if applicable)

make sure the battery is good (has full charge)also you might test the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port

restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer


click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x

right click you will need to update the driver


click start control panel 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 options to update driver rollback driver or uninstall also


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 arrows 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

Dell mouse not responding; diagnostics results says test passed. mouse works on other PC


Hello,
There is a very good chance it's one of two problems. First, while theoretically you can connect tons of USB products, sometimes USB ports can be kind of hinky... Try unplugging something else USB based and plugging in the mouse or try several different ports. Also be sure it's not plugged into a USB hub and is going directly into your computer. If this works play with the arrangement of your USB devices until you find a configuration that works, maybe you'll have to switch out a printer or external drive while using your USB mouse...
If this doesn't provide a solution the next thing to do is to uninstall the pointer device driver in device manager and allow it to re-install.
If you don't have an alternate mouse to complete the task, here is the keyboard shortcuts for Windows although depending on your version of Windows it may be slightly different.
-First hold the windows key and hit the r key (win+r)
this will bring up the run menu
-Next type mmc this will bring up a management console
-Next press the ALT key and hit the down arrow key
(this should drop down the file menu, if it doesn't please try ALT+F)
-Use the arrow key to scroll down to Add/Remove snap in and hit enter.
-Use the arrow key to scroll down to Device Manager and hit ALT+A to add the device manager to the console. Hit enter.
-Make sure local computer is selected if this menu comes up and hit enter.
-Hit enter one more time bringing you back to the console with the device manager added.
-Hit tab to get to the center console and scroll down to mouse.
(If tab isn't doing anything please hit the ALT key once.)
-Hit enter to open the tree if it isn't already
-Scroll down to mice and other pointing devices (or something along these lines) and hit the right arrow key to expand the tree again.
-Select the USB mouse with arrow keys
-Hit the alt key again then the down arrow (not together) and then the right arrow key until you get to the action menu and use the arrow key to go down to uninstall and hit enter.
-Wait a moment and then go back to the action menu (you may have to hit tab just keep trying tab and the down key (not together) until a menu opens. Go over to the action menu again and choose scan for hardware changes. The computer should recognize the mouse and now work.
I hope this helps you. Thank you.

On my toshiba mini laptop the cursor gets stuck in a page up and down mode - just goes up and down but won't move right or left. I may have hit some key, but how do I get out of it?


Hi,

You have Scroll Lock on.

Look at the top of the keyboard for a key which says "Scr Lock" on it and press that key.

the Scroll lock will then be removed allowing you to use the mouse cursor properly.


Regards.
