Try setting the buttons to "generic" in SetPoint and then assign fuctions via the game options.

From Logitech Knowledge Base:
The information in this article applies to the following products:
All Logitech Mice
Logitech SetPoint
Cause:
Most games that support a mouse will give you options to program or assign specific functions to various buttons on the mouse. These games normally look for generic mouse buttons when attempting to bind the mouse buttons to a game function. If the button is set to another function in SetPoint (such as Universal Scroll, Back, Forward, etc), the game may not see the mouse button as available to bind. This mainly affects buttons 3, 4, and 5.
Solution:
To resolve this issue, set the button you wish to program to a generic value in SetPoint. The following values should be used if you are having problems binding buttons in games.
Mouse Button 3 (The Middle Button/Scroll Wheel):
In SetPoint, assign this button as Middle Button or Generic Button.
Note for MX Revolution users: You must disable Logitech Smart Shift Technology or the Middle Button option will not be available in SetPoint.
Mouse Buttons 4 and 5 (Normally the thumb buttons):
In SetPoint, assign the thumb button(s) as Generic Button. Note that these buttons will still work in most browsers for forward and back. It is not necessary to assign these buttons to Forward and Back in SetPoint for this functionality.

Google internet text is TOO small


Hi,
Its a easy thing you can do it.

Press control button(Ctrl) and same time use you mouse scroll to make text size small or big.

1. Scroll forward for increase the font size.
2. Scroll backward for decrease the font size.


thanks for using Fixya.

I deleted my forward and backward bar by accident and now i cant find it


You must have deleted the internet explorer forward and backward bar,You have not mentioned the operating system and type of internet explorer you are using.

Try this step
click on start> go to accessories>click on system tools> click on system restore> choose a date when internet explorer had forward and back ward button.

GOOD LUCK..

Left mouse key button works intermittantly


Other than trying with a fresh set of known-good batteries, it might be defective out-of-box. Check with your place of purchase for repair or replacement options.

Need help programming keys and understanding how to use other unlabled keys on board.


I believe that this is the Cordless Desktop LX 700.

Try this link at Logitech:

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/433/3027&cl=us,en&hub=1?selectedcrid=433&selectedcid=3027

You should be able to download the Setpoint software based on the OS of your computer. This should have a readme file and a help file to help you setup the keyboard and mouse.

Good Luck

Mouse


Try this, If you have an external mouse port, attach another mouse, reboot laptop. If mouse works, depends on operating system? Goto control panel, mouse icon and see if you might have diabled or changed mouse key to use the right key?

Monitor problem


I have seen this before. The computer I did this on, while holding down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys you press one of the arrow keys to rotate the screen. Depending on the arrow key, determines how much rotation you want. This might not be the solution you want.

It is the display adapter software that does this. You will need to go to your display adapter software to get the correct key bindings. I am not talking about the "desktop display settings". If you have an nvidia graphics card then it will be the nvidia graphics adapter software that you installed. Not the driver, but the software that allows you to tweak your graphics adapter.

My advise, use that software to rotate your screen to the correct orientation, then disable those key bindings.
