Finding suitable mouse driver

  A J-305805 23:59 07 Feb 2004

I stood on my mouse and did it a great deal of no good at all so a friend gave me a spare new cheap optical mouse - V Well-MK662. It works OK just plugged in as a direct replacement (using the original "Microsoft PS/2 Port Mouse" driver) but it came without its own software disk. I would quite like to be able to use the scroll wheel as well but nowhere can I find anywhere to download a driver for this function for this model, or indeed any reference to this mouse at all.

I am using NT4. Can anyone very kindly either supply a suitable scroll-wheel driver or suggest a generic one worth trying, please?

Thank you

arthur.dent, I use a PS2 wheel mouse and whenever I have to format my hard drive I never install any drivers for the mouse. The wheel works ok. Look for these driver files, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\i8042prt.sys, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\mouclass.sys. If you haven't got them, try looking on the NT disk and put them in.

These files are already present - always supposing that I8042prt.sys (upper-case I) which I have, is the same as i8042prt.sys (lower-case i) which you suggest.

Thank you anyway
