Windows 7: Won't save mouse settings after restart

29 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 (64)
Won't save mouse settings after restart

I have an HP pavilion DV8 laptop, and a logitech wireless USB mouse, as well as the standard laptop touch pad.

So, I can change my mouse settings in the control panel, as well as my logitech app, and as it stands they intermix slightly (The control panel effects the logitech app's sensitivity). Basically I turn my control panel speed settings up (all the way, I shouldn't have to touch the touchpad 5 times to navigate across the screen), and on the logitech app I turn the sensitivity down most of the way (any faster and its a bit squirrely to use).

The problem is, whenever I restart my computer the control panel mouse settings revert back to being REALLY slow, and it is getting a bit annoying to have to go into the control panel every time I start up.

Has anyone had problems similar to this? Is there an updated driver fix, or can I change a settings file to read only, or something else maybe? Please help!

That would be SetPoint causing that....that program is notorious for resetting your "Windows" mouse speed. I've fought it for years but as I generally only use my mouse, I've given up the battle....

BTW, there's a setting in SetPoint that is supposed to allow for "OS mouse speed implementation" but as I've stated, hasn't helped me...

I too have fought with this annoying problem for years now! It has been super frustrating! Just today, I updated my software from inside the software checking for updates. I then adjusted the mouse speed from setpoint and restarted my computer, and it held!! Hopefully this will be the final fix! I'll have to keep trying it. The biggest downside to this is when I want to change back to my laptop's touchpad and it's slower than tar. Logitech needs some help with this one.

Win 7 Home (twice, dual boot) 64 bit

I had the same problem with my microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse. Fixed it by
- Going to msconfig, startup tab
- Enabled microsoft intellipoint and microsoft IntelliTypePro (software for my mouse and keyboard) so they would startup when I boot.

I don't think that it is simply a SetPoint or Intellitype driver problem, because I have found that the Control Panel/Mouse settings fail to keep their settings, even with no manufacturer's driver installed.

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
Mouse won't keep pointer settings

I sure wish someone had a solution for this. I have Win7 and an ordinary Dell mouse, and have tried various things I've found online (can't remember exactly now because I gave up months ago), but nothing works. Every day when I turn on my computer, I have to reset the pointer because it reverts back to SLOOOWWW again!

Wont save mouse settings after restart

I found the solution to my problem and setup. Go to the startup tab in masconfig or your startup manager and make sure your mouse settings software is enabled to start up. In my case, it was the Logitech Setpoint that I disabled in Start up tab and if it is disabled, it cannot remember your last settings, it start up back to basic settings. So make sure it is enabled, simple as that.
