Hello Simmykrantz to Geeks To Go! I am Paul and I am here to assist you. You need to know how to find some infomration on your mouse........ ok. Start >> Right-click my computer > hardware tab >> device mananger >> Mice and Other Pointing Devices (check the white box >> double click on your mouse. Please respond with feedback as I would like to know if I have helped you.

Hi simmykrantz...

Go Here, find your mouse from this group and click on it, download and install the "Mouseware" for your Mouse...reboot whether prompted to or not.

In the link given by wannabe1
Click on Other. On the new page click on Other Logitech Mice.
Download MouseWare on this page, it will automatically detect your mouse and install the drivers.

simmykrantz...

Ok...I'll see if I can help you find the correct drivers....

Look on the bottom of your mouse...we need to find a model such as OpticalMouse22 or MouseMan2...that's the way Logitech lists their models. Post back with that and a little clearer description of your mouse. (ie: corded wheel mouse / ps2)

Another thing to consider is that your mouse may have died...Have you tried a different mouse?

Just had to throw my 2¢ in this discussion.
I wonder that no mention is made of the "why" you need drivers for your mouse.
Me thinks it may be because it is not tracking like it used to, which leads me to believe that you need to clean the ball and the contacts it rides against. Q-tips and alcohol will do the trick.

Hi simmykrantz...Sorry it took so long to get back to you...had a hard drive failure this weekend. :tazz:

The "plain Jane" mouse you describe shouldn't need any special drivers...it would either work, or as in your case...not work. My suggestion would be to toss the offending desk rodent in the trash and hook up a new mouse (or at least try swapping it with a different mouse to see if that's the problem)...they are not expensive, you could upgrade considerably for less than $30
