Explorer Mini Mouse Scroll Wheel Problem


I seem to be having some problems with my explorer mini mouse scroll wheel. Most of the day the mouse works perfectly well, but around 2:00pm each day the mouse scroll wheel seems to stop working properly. It becomes jumpy and sometimes stops all together. Around 3:00pm it starts to work again. I've been investigating this for some time now and think it is related to the sun. The mouse rests on the table beside the window and as the sun shines in and hits the mouse at a certain angle it stops working, then when the mouse is out of direct sunlight it works again.

I've tried when it isn't working to put the mouse in the shade and it works, i've also put my other hand in front of it when it's not working and this also fixes the issue. Has anyone else heard of something like this or can this make sense, i don't know how the mouse senses the movement of the scroll wheel but if it is not mechanical but light related, perhaps this is the reason for my issues?

If you have any experience with this or have some news to stop me thinking i'm a bit mad here that would be great. Also if this does make sense and is an issue, how do i get this feedback to the microsoft r&d teams to take this into account for the v2 design?

Microsoft Intellipoint 7.0 Mouse Scroll Wheel Does Not Scroll

Microsoft intellipoint 7. 0 (wireless optical mouse 2. 0) scroll wheel does not scroll (very slowly or not at all) in yahoo mail in google chrome, internet explorer or firefox on windows 7. When i am in the list of messages in yahoo' new mail, the scroll wheel does not properly scroll through the messages. It barely moves at all (maybe one line with five scrolls). Scrolling seems to work fine in all other parts of the browser. I have this same problem in chrome 4. 0. 288. 1dev and firefox 3. 5. 7, and ie 8.

I have checked the scroll settings and tried selecting the highest scroll rate and the advanced setting to increase speed when scrolling faster. This has not changed the performance at all.
This problem is new since upgrading from xp to windows 7 ultimate and reinstalling the mouse driver.
I have another laptop, no external mouse or keyboard, windows 7, and there is no problem with the scrolling (using it's touchpad, so i assume it has something to do with the intellipoint software.

Explorer And Browsers Windows Scroll Bar Issue

All windows programmes (such as browsers firefox, chrome, explorer) force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up. Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately resolve the problem. All windows programmes force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up.

Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately help. Environment using win 7 on a laptop (acer), with usb mouse. When the mouse is not used (i.e. Tracker pad is used) there seems to be a number of system freezes. We did not get these problems prior to windows 7 upgrade. The lap top is relatively new with 4gb ram.

Sidewinder X3 Mouse Wheel Button Problem

I had my sidewinder x3 mouse for a few months now and it was working perfectly until yesterday the mouse wheel started to act up, heres what it does: the button it self still clicks perfectly but for the mouse to actually read i pressed it i need to apply more pressure. It specially does this after i scrolled down but not as much after i scrolled up. I already brought back 2 other x3's at the store, one had the same problem and the other one jammed at a certain point when scrolling. Now the store wont take it back since my warranty is over. I use this mouse for first person shooters like call of duty modern warfare 2 so its very impotent for me that my hardware performs flawlessly. Is there anything i can do to fix this?

Dell Xps Delayed Mouse Wheel Scrolling

Since installing win7-64 (dell xps) i have been noticing a weird scroll effect. Approximately 2-3 seconds after mouse-wheel scrolling, the active window "jumps" one more scroll increment in the same direction, without any input from me. This doesn't happen every time, but often enough that it causes problems. i.e. I'll scroll to a given location in windows explorer's folder list, then go grab a file to drag to a folder, but before i can drop it the folder list scrolls by itself. I've seen this happen in many programs, including windows explorer, ie8, firefox, eclipse, oxygen/xml, textpad. Anybody have any ideas what's causing this?

Scroll Bar On Photo Viewer

How do you enable/show the scroll bar on the windows photo viewer? I am using two thinkpad t400, one running vista and the other is 7. On the vista machine, when i open up a large photo, the scroll bar will appear so i can go to the top or bottom quickly. On 7, that scroll bar disappeared. Is there a patch i can apply to get it back? It seems it is not in the option or settings. This is really painful because i have to deal with large pictures. And i've been going back to the vista even if i hate it so much.

Program Not Responding - Spinning Wheel

Frequent program not responding.system locks up with spinning wheel lasting from 30 seconds to 2 minutes before program is available again. It happens with just about every program and without warning. Yes, my hard drive light on the front panel of the tower is lit the whole time the spinning wheel is visible on the display. Does anyone have a solution?

I have a dell xps 400 series desktop pc upgraded from win xp pro to windows 7 home premium. Prior to upgrade, memory was expanded to 3 gb and win xp worked fine. Recently, i replaced the original graphics card with a 512 mb card. These are the only differences from the original configuration. I already have the latest bios and did a clean reinstall of windows 7 and ran all of the windows updates. Windows experience rating is 3. 5.

Everything looks good in the device manager. Everything operates quickly and normally until a program stops responding and spinning wheel appears for at least 30 seconds up to 2 minutes. I have symantec endpoint protection 11. 0. 5 (just the antivirus portion installed). I tried other antivirus software but it did not make any difference. Windows firewall is enabled and windows defender is disabled. Dell will not address my problem because pc is too old.

Mini Dv Firewire Capture

I recently installed windows 7 rc on my computer; upgraded from windows7 build 6800 and suddenly i cannot capture video from my mini dv camerea (panasonic_ professional dvx-100b). I had no such trouble on windows 7 6800, but now no such luck. On 7rc i hear the magic noise but nothing ever pops up and asks me if i'd like to capture.

I am using sony vegas 8 or 9 to capture the video, though i also tried to use movie maker, but also to no avail. I did a clean install and still nothing. The video camera is even recognized in the device manager, but does not work. Please help if you have a solution or an idea.

Dell Mini 10 Upgrade Possible ?

Is it possible to upgrade to 7 for a dell mini 10? I've heard some reviews say it works great, others, not so great. I recently upgraded all of my computers to windows 7, and i love it i really, really, really wanted to do the same for my dell mini though. It only comes with 1gb of ram, and that's the limit. I just purchased it a few months ago, and it comes with xp. The windows 7 upgrade advisor/vista advisor will not work. I've tried and tried, but they just "scan" the computer for hours. I really wanted to upgrade it, but i want to know if it will work before heading out to buy another upgrade kit. It has a 240gb hard drive, 1gb ram, and the processor only seems to be 1. 33ghz

Hp Mini Netbook Will Not Play Sound

My new netbook will not play any sound i recently purchased an hp mini and after setting it up, i discovered it would not play any sound. I've tried to troubleshoot the problem, but a message comes up saying that no problem was found. Neither the speakers or the headphones will play any sound. I've tested both and tried to play videos, but still there has been no sound. I also restarted my computer to see if it would help and it didn't. I've made sure my headphones work and the netbook could not have been damaged because when i found out about this problem i had just taken it out of the package.

Dell Mini 1010 Gps Not Working

Ok, i know i am told the dell mini 1010 gps is not supported under windows 7. I did how ever install windows 7 ultimate and after playing with different drivers, i did get the gps to work although not great. The refresh rate on the receiver is very slow, causing it to take a long time to track where you are at. Does anybody have any ideas of a driver i can use other than the dell xp driver?

It is listed in the device manager under ports as follows:
Dell wireless 700 gps/wps virtual com port (com4)
Driver details: dell
Driver date: 3/27/2009
Driver verison: 3. 1. 0. 15($rev:3982 $) copyrighted by skyhook wireless 2006-2009
Dw700 cp210x port (com3)
Driver details: broadcom corporation
Driver date:2/22/2007
Driver version: 4. 40. 1. 0

Would there be a better driver out there for these? Or maybe, could i change the port settings? I would really love any help with this, i really do not want to put xp back on this machine, i love the win7 way to much.

Driver Update For Dell Wireless 1505 Mini Card

I have a dell inspiron 1720 with a dell 1505 wireless mini-card. I had been using win 7 rc1 32-bit almost since release and had the same problem but attributed it to the rc1 status.

I recently installed win7 64-bit ult and the initial drivers that automatically install for this card (version 4. 176. 75. 21) released 10/1/2008 work fine and i can connect to my n router at 270mb/s.

Windows update however wants to upgrade the drivers to 5. 30. 21. 0 on doing this it limits the connection to 54mb/s after talking with dells support they state that the 5. 30. 21. 0 drivers are not intended for the 1505 minicard

Rolling the drivers back allows me to connect again at 270mb/s

I am somewhat happy with this except for 2 things.

1. I am concerned that other people with the same card might be getting a bad update from microsoft.

2. And my main concern is i had a very hard to troubleshoot issue with the 4. 176. 75. 21 drivers when using the rc 1 of win 7. My computer when recovering from sleep mode states that it did not shut down properly and it was attributed to incorrect wifi drivers.

It is extremely hard to troubleshoot since it does not happen all the time. Am i just the oddball? I have hard a hard time finding anyone else with the same issue. But that could be from several different reasons.

Will Win 7 Upgrade Reinstall Dell Wireless 1397 Wlan Mini Card Drivers?

Will windows 7 upgrade reinstall the drivers for my dell wireless 1397 wlan mini card that came with my dell studio laptop? I purchased a dell studio laptop in oct. And have received a windows 7 upgrade disk with dell's upgrade assistant disk which they have you run first. This disk checks your computer to make sure all your programs etc are compatible with windows 7. The results of this scan were that it needed to delete the wireless card drivers and googletoolbar.

I have set up a home wireless network and do not want to lose my connection. I called dell technical support and was told that the upgrade disk would install the proper wireless card drivers and i would not lose my wireless connection. I would like to make sure before i do this. If dell support gave me incorrect information, what do i need to do to make sure that my wireless card continue to function after upgrading to w7?

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

I have uninstall and reinstalled the software, uninstalled the software and did a "clean" boot to install the software, without success. How can i fix this problem?

2 C: Drives In Explorer

I seem to have 2 almost identical c: drives on my laptop, which previously had both vista and win7 on it, and now only has win7. They're both called "win 7 (c:)". The first appears under computer (which is under desktop) and has 45, 454, 684, 160 bytes of data and the tabs under it are: general, tools, hardware, sharing, security, previous versions, quota.

Then, (under desktop) i have d: and e: drives, network, control panel, recycle bin, followed by the 2nd c: drive. This has 45, 454, 704, 640 bytes, and the tabs are general, tools, hardware, and previous versions. I can access any folder and file through either c: drive icon, with the only difference that if i click on a folder in the first c:, it opens a new explorer window, while if i click on a folder in the 2nd c:, it opens in the same window (which is how i like it). Why is this the case?  Any help to get rid of one of these (and have folders open in the same window) would be much appreciated.

Two Internet Explorer

I have a hp pavilion notebook pc. I was running vista home premium. I had a "free upgrade" when windows 7 was released. I followed the install (update not clean install) instructions for windows 7 and everything showed successful. My problem is i have 2 internet explorers. 1st- "internet explorer (64-bit)", 2nd is listed as program(x86) internet explorer. My computer is running a 64-bit system. This happened when i upgraded to windows 7. I thought (x86) runs with 32-bit system. How do i correct this? Problem installing other software.

So the problem that i can getting is that when i want to refresh my desktop i get a "windows explorer error"  and then it begins to look for a solution to fix this issue, it then restarts itself and teh computer goes back to normal.

Explorer Is Very Slow

One one of my machines windows explorer is very slow. Additionally the standard file open/save boxes in applications are very slow. I installed a windows explorer replacement and it is very fast. I can live with the replacement (in fact i kind of like it), but the open/save boxes are still slow. And no, there is no malware on machine. The drives are not full, and any way it appears to unrelated to how much free space there is on the drive.

Just so there is no confusion, this is not internet explorer, but windows explorer (most people access it by clicking on "my computer" on the desktop. I say this because have searched around there seems to be confusion about which one is asked about. I have tried the suggestion about thumbnails and indexing. It has not helped.

Apphangb1 In Explorer

Running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit my computer has been slowly deteriorating. I have run various scans (including panda in safe mode) and i am reasonably convinced that this is not a virus issue. When i run in safe mode everything seems to be fine. However, when i open in regular mode my desk top items are the icon for a blank page. More often than not, i can not run a program from the start menu. It generally searches and then hangs. Programs in the icon notification area generally are accessible. There are no program icons in the task bar, either blank pages or clear blocks.

Explorer hangs for various actions, including trying to customize "icon notification area. "
The problems really presented when i added a lacie backup drive and installed genie software (backup manager 8 and timeline). I have deleted those programs but the problems remain. I was able to backup in a variety of ways but i was not able to create a disaster recovery disc or create a system image in windows backup. The genie backup manager 8 indicated that volume copy shadow would not initialize. Their web site offered a solution which suggested some changes to windows services.

I tried it but it would never backup. Further tinkering (including installing a registry cleaner-since deleted) only produced a situation where windows wouldn't boot all. I was able to boot from my windows 7 backup cd and repaired windows start up. The computer is operable right now. However, intermittently access to applications is limited so it's not just a visual problem. How can i use the fact that windows in the safe mode appears to work to pinpoint the problem and eliminate it?  I am close to reformatting and reinstalling and praying the backups are there.

Explorer Keeps Popping Up

At desktop or during use of my windows 7 64bit ultimate the windows explorer window will pop up, the top right side of the window where the search box is will blink rapidly, the window will not close unless i type at least two letters into the search box then click the red x to close or if i open task manager and end task. This has happened since day one, i have tried a repair/upgrade and yesterday finally had enough so i reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows. The first time at desk top the windows explorer poped up same as before. This does not happen with my windows 7 32bit ultimate machine. I have tried for seven months without success to resolve this issue, anyone out there have any suggestions?
