IntelliMouse Wheel doesn't register

  Batch 17:18 15 Jan 2004

I've attached an IntelliMouse to a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop (about 5 years old) running W98SE and installed IntelliPoint 4.1. However, the wheel on the mouse does not respond (it works OK on another machine).

Fired up mouseinfo.exe and any wheel actions (scrolling / clicking) are not registered.

BTW, the built in device is a Synaptics Touch Pad

Any suggestions?

Have you tried new drivers fir the mouse?

Installing Intellimouse has loaded up some pretty recent drivers.

I was wondering if the touch pad is recognised as the prime pointing device and so only the basic features of this are available to a mouse that is then attached.

Not sure about that. I also have a touchpad as well as a mouse and I can use either of them. If the mouse appears in device manager, could try removing it then rebooting.
