I am running aToshiba x505-885 laptop with a Microsoft mobile mouse 4000. It scrolls very,very fast. I have tried searching for the mouse and I can find settings for this mouse, however, when I click on the settings nothing happens and I cannot slow down the scroll, I just updated the driver thing I could get to the settings but still cannot. Any ideas?
Okay guys I think I'll just throw it out I have had it for some time now and its now worth the hassle of going to microsoft. Thanks again. I just installed a Toshiba nano mouse and it does the same thing I cajn't get into the settings on this one either
Ensure the HID Service is running.
To start the Human Interface Device (HID) service, follow these steps:
1. Open Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in for Services.
Click Start Button.
Type services.msc in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
2. Open the HID service.
In the list of services in the details pane, double-click HID Input Service or Human Interface Device Access Service.
3. Make sure that the Startup Type value is set to Automatic.
4. Reboot the machine.
Rick, that worked, Great I can now access the mouse settings but there is no scroll setting where I can slow down the scroll, only pointer, pointer option, wheel and hardware, so I still cannot slow it down
Lighthouse, Under the wheel tab it says , vertical scrolling roll the wheel one notch to scroll, the following number of lines at a time and two is selected. Horizontal Scrolling, tilt the wheel to scroll the following number of characters at a time and one is selected.
Rick, I downloaded and installed the 4000 driver from your link and that fixed it, I can now get into the settings and modify it the way I want, and YES I will not forget what you taught me from this and other posts. Btw the HID services was set to manual, so I changed it to Automatic, per your instructions. Thanks much for all your and others expert advise.
