Re: scroll bar goes up and down or right and left uncontrollable


OSNN One Post Wonder
Hi, I just bought Dell's notebook 510M and installed win2k, ms office, ms visual studio and MS SQLserver 2k.Then, when I ran applications such as MS word or Excel or VB, the scroll bar went up and down or right and left uncontrollable sometimes, but other times are OK. I was wondering what caused it. I'd appreciate if someone could help me. Thanks.

I have the original mouse that comes with the laptop and I add a MS wireless optical mouse. I'll try to uninstall the wireless one. Thanks.


Yes remove any pointer (mouse) drivers, reboot and then reinstall the optical ones, but first make sure you have the latest drivers for the specific pointer (mouse) you wish to use.

This may sound stupid but I have this problem on my laptop sometimes when I'm typing and it happens because my palm strays over the touchpad and moves my cursor. Try disabling your touchpad (if you have one).

I would guess you are clicking the scroll wheel (and maybe not realizing it)

If you click the scroll wheel (in the center of your mouse) the page will auto scroll up and down or sideways on it's own.

If this happens again just click the scroll wheel and see if it corrects the problem.

I've done this myself and thought WTF stop stop!!! I can't read that fast :laugh:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
