For a while I've been using a Logitech mouse which includes a scroll wheel. Since I use a laptop, I usually have to unplug this mouse quite often. I notice that when I plug the mouse back in, the mouse speed is greatly reduced, the two quick page flip buttons on the sides dont work, and the scroll wheel is diactivated.

As long as the mouse is plugged into the computer when I turn it on, it works fine. But if it ever becomes unplugged, everything I mentioned above happens.

So I always end up having to restart the computer every time I re-insert the mouse, just to get it back to it's normal conditions.

Is there a way that I can unplug, and replug the mouse, and have it work like it does when I first start the computer? (without having to go deep into the mouse settings and mess with the speed and scroll wheel detection.)

Try installing the software for the mouse from the logitech website, this way the computer will know how to use the mouse when it is re-inserted the next time you use it because it will have the configuration saved.

I gave that a shot, but no luck. The weird thing is that when I go to the mouse settings after I unplug and reinsert the mouse, the setting for the speed is exactly the same as when I first turn the computer on, but the mouse is still slower.

I don't know if that helps determine what the problem is, or if it just makes my situation worse. :tazz:

Thanks for the effort.

I suggest you try a different mouse, not made by logitech and see if you still have the same problem.

Yea that I should do. Right now I don't have any others I can try, but I'll get back to you when I get the opportunity, and tell you what happened.

Thanks again
