Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Mouse/scrolling problem Hello, Recently my laptop started to scroll to the bottom of a screen and will not allow scrolling to the top again. It holds that screen in the bottom position. It is a Toshiba laptop with a vista. It was working perfectly until my son downloaded updates. Then it simply quit allowing normal scrolling. I can operate on any page that does not have any extension to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated?

I did something that caused the pages of the internet to be in tiny, tiny print. I can't even read them. I cant get the screens big again!


Try opening your browser, hover your mouse pointer anywhere in the web page, hold down the ctrl key on your keyboard and scroll forward on your mouse.

Holding down ctrl and scrolling with mouse is how to zoom in windows.

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

Release the scroll key


    • 1 Open and power on the laptop.
    • 2 Wait for the laptop to fully boot.
    • 3 Locate the "Scroll" button at the top-left of the keyboard. It is under the volume panel and between the "F12" and "Pause" keys.
    • 4 Press the "Scroll" button.
    • 5 Test it by opening a spreadsheet and using the arrow keys to move around on it. You can open your Microsoft Excel program or create a spreadsheet online by using Google Docs (free online productivity software). The "Scroll Lock" function will keep the current cell selected while the screen moves.
    • 6 Press "Scroll Lock" again to turn it off.

All things on my imac desktop is bigger by 2x


You may have
- Adjusted the screen resolution inadvertently (go to the System Preferences > Displays panel to fix this, adjust the screen resolution to a higher setting, i.e. toward the bottom of the list)
- Inadvertently used "screen zoom" by holding control and doing a scroll with the mouse trackball (or a 2-finger scroll with the mighty mouse). To fix this, try holding control and scrolling the mouse's scroll wheel down. (Or swiping downward with 2 fingers on the mighty mouse if you are using one of those)
- Accidentally adjusted the size of the icons in the finder. You can fix this by going to the finder (click the desktop) and hit command J (or just go to View > Show View Options). This will allow you to adjust the size of the icons on the desktop, or any other window.

Cant get the font to change on a web page that I somehow made smaller


Hello

OK, all you need to do is to hold down the "Ctrl" button on your keyboard. While you hold down the key, you need to scroll with your mouse button, If you have an external mouse plugged in, you just need to scroll with the middle mouse button. If you use the mouse pad on the laptop, the left side on the pad is usually the scroll function.

So...Just to be clear. Open your web browser. Hold down the "Ctrl" key on scroll up or down with your scroll function.

Hope this can be of help. Also, please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards
Andrea

Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 v2.0 Scrolling has gone awry


This may not be a solution for you but at least it may explain the cause of the problem. I recently had the same problem - the scroll wheel suddenly began to go crazy, jumping all the way to the bottom or the top of a document, or randomly skipping around. The unit was still under warranty, and Microsoft sent me a new mouse. Since they did not require me to return the old mouse, I decided to take it apart to see if I could find the problem. I found poorly soldered electrical joints to the optical sensor & LED which convert the scroll wheel movement to electrical signals. After I resoldered these connections the mouse worked fine again.

Autoscroll


Try simply using a system restore to before the problem started acting up. Also, you can try going into the mouse properties (Start Menu, Control Panel for Xp) and look for scrollsettings there, which may allow you to turn off certain mouse features (aka. if gestures are enabled it might be conflicting with scrolling).
Hope this helps.

Wireless Mouse


Have you changed the batteries recently?

Normal 0 Normal 0 If the mouse doesn't have a little door to open on the bottom, then try this. Just behind the Left and Right keys where your hand rests, apply firm pressure down on the cover and slide to the rear. Some mouse manufactures have used this type of access to replace the batteries.



If it’s a wireless GE mouse turn it on by pushing the button on the bottom and hold till the red light comes on. Assuming the computer is running, press the Blue light on the Receiver and then, press the button on the bottom of the mouse and it should start tracking on the monitor.
Hope this helps. Bud
