I would appreciate any thoughts or help I can get on this matter. 1) I'm using Windows XP Home on a Gateway 310S. 2) For any window on any program that has a vertical scroll bar, the page immediately scrolls to the bottom and sits. UP ARROW and PAGE UP have no effect. At times, it is possible to scroll up by dragging the scroll bar with the mouse, but the page scrolls to the bottom when the mouse button is released. Other times, it's only possible to drag the scroll bar up several lines. 3) There is nothing in the Trouble Shooter of either Gateway or Microsoft on-line help about this problem. 4) I have temporarily and unsatisfactorily 'resolved' the problem by uninstalling the mouse using Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > Mouse, then re-booting. After logging on, I receive a message telling me new hardware has been detected and I need to re-start. I say no, because if I restart, I have to uninstall the mouse again. 5) In this condition, the mouse works fine, except the wheel does not work. I also noticed that when the mouse drivers are installed, it isn't possible to adjust any of the settings on the mouse panel through Control Panel > Mouse. 6) I purchased a Logitech Mx310 Optical Mouse and installed it, thinking that something was wrong with Gateway's mouse. The Logitech mouse worked for about 3 minutes before the mouse pointer froze dead-center of the monitor. I had to uninstall the Logitech mouse and re-install the Gateway mouse in order to have any mouse capabilities. 7) Sometimes I can run the Gateway mouse with the Logitech mouse drivers installed. This works fine for several hours, sometimes even several days but if I open or close MS Access or Excel progams it eventually fails and always fails if I open AOL. 8) When using a normal mouse with a wheel, which drivers should be installed? Is it possible for the driver's to be corrupt or files missing? When I bought the computer system the mouse worked fine for about 30 days. Gateway's Telephone Help-Line solution was to use the System Restore settings, but that hasn't worked. 9) Even with the mouse uninstalled, I occassionally experience problems with vertical scroll bars on windows. I have Norton's Anti-Virus installed and run it almost daily but it hasn't detected any viruses, repaired any files or quarantined any files so I have ruled out a 'virus' as the cause.
