Hi Barb, Here's one other thing you might try before the reinstall of windows. The video card is related to what the mouse does big time. It would be worth a try to remove the video card drivers in device manager with the remove button and restart to reinstall the video card. The reinstall of windows will do the same, it will reinstall the video drivers during the process.

I might check in assesibilities... when it comes to my youngest son. he;s 5, i never know what he might have done to get this thing messed up . Then the 12 year old does his own thing on it too. This is the compaq I reinstalled windows on a couple of weeks ago.. so may have to do it agian.. -------Original Message------- From: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Sunday, June 01, 2003 1:59:30 PM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: mouse troubles Hi Barb, No, go to control panel, mouse and see if there is a setting wrong. If you find a setting for that and it is right, try changing it and back again. It is also possible, something got set in accessibility, so you might check there also. Now, maybe it's time to reload windows over the top of itself. The funny part of this to me is that you said you were able to make it change to the other direction after doing some tinkering. What tinkering? :O) Bob Noble To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
