Stupid mouse

I have a logitech cordless mouse
I just bought a new computer and now i have to use the ps/2 port. Before i used the Serial port.

In Netscape, Word and lister when you thy to scroll in any of these progs. the mouse just keeps scrolling down maybe a page or two. This is really starting to piss me off. Any ideas. I'm using the 8.2 drivers + the 7.5 control panel (mouseware) + Win98

I assume it has a scroll wheel or button? Try looking the in mouse setup program or control panel applet for an "auto-scroll" feature and turn it off.

The mouse is old so it doesn't have a scroll wheel.

Every time I enter the Mouseware setup under the Control panel the middle button is set to "auto-scroll" eventhough it works as double click.

set it to paste and then make sure you exit through the ok tab.
(just makeing sure):~)
this happened with one of mine setting the middle button to paste
stopped it .

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I don't want it to paste. I want it to double click.

Couldn't it be the PS/2 port. (I used to use the Serial)

What type of motherboard are you using? I've got one with a PS/2 port as well, but I can turn that one off in the BIOS settings. Try doing that and then install it on the serial port.

Chase is correct disable your ps2 port in your bios then plug your mouse into the serial port.

Putting it to the serial port didn't help.

Any suggestions

Ok this is something we might have overlooked.you should have the logitech mouse symbol on your taskbar double click on it .this should bring up your mouse properties. select device setup now setup your mouse when you get to select a function for middle button make sure to select other and not hyper-jump.(other being double click )now does it save the settings.
hope this helps.:~)

EKIM is right!  It is a problem with Logitech!  WIN 98 and new versions of WIN 95 all have something call DirectX.  The Logitech drivers clash with the DirectX TEchnology and can even cause full systems to crash!  You should try uninstalling the mouse and let windows detect it!  See if it works without install Logitech drivers.  Even if there is an error in the Device Manager, if it works it works.  Other wise you need to get a hold of Logitech and get the updated drivers that work with the DirectX.

jacobasCommented:
It all depends on what resources you have currently using and what patches you have installed for win95/98.  I had installed a three button that almost crashed my whole system.  I couldnt even power up and power down the right way!  I had to uninstall the active desktop in win 95 osr2b!  Trust me!

But I want the logitech features...

The URL for control center 8.01 PLEASE ...

jacobasCommented:
Another choice is to uninstall everything and install the mouse first!  Windows does not change resource settings to install new hardware.  Maybe one of your other prephials will work under new settings and the mouse will take the settings it needs!
