Windows 7: new desktop/hardware/software interferes with mouse & scrolling

27 Mar 2017   #1

new desktop/hardware/software interferes with mouse & scrolling

Have just got a new desktop with 120gig SSD drive, 16gigs of RAM running on w7Pro 64bit.

On my old desktop which used 2 SATA drives, 2gigs of ram and the same software as above except it was 32bit, everything ran perfectly.

Now, my flash drives aren't recognised in Disk Management or in Windows Explorer or in Device Manager. Even 'Folder & Search Options' in W/Explorer have been set to 'Show All Drives/Folders' etc.

[Edited 27th. 3.36pm UK. In the following paragraph, the scrolling problem seems to have been [corrected but only on web pages but am not sure exactly what command I ticked or unticked. I [was in Palemoon | Tools | Options and also ..... Options | Tabs | Tab Mix Plus. When I [discovered the scrolling function was working, I went back to look for the command but couldn't [find it. Scrolling is still unworkable in ordinary documents.
[Whats more, the wheel in the mouse (Logitech B100)from the old computer won't do anything at [all in any web page or in any document ... no scrolling at a all. The only way I can scroll is to do [it via the right-hand scrollbar.

About an hour ago, the wheel couldn't even vary the number of lines I wanted to re-set from 3 to 17 until I downloaded & installed some extra software.

Could it be that the W7Pro 64bit application has deliberately omitted this facility? Maybe they're trying to get us to move to W10.

Finally, each time I 're-start' this new computer, which was custom-made, it does exactly what it should do but if I shut it down completely, the little blue circle in the centre of the screen stops going round after a few seconds ... it doesn't shut down so I end up having to hold the 'on-off in for a few seconds ... not really a clever idea.

I will keep on trying to figure these 3 points out but would welcome any ideas or thoughts that anyone might have please.

My thanks in advance.

The mouse is fully working but the shut-down problem didn't so in the end, I re-ran the motherboard disk that came with the computer which cured it. i have no idea why it failed to work the first time.

I tried to run a check disk of my C: (System) drive, and was unable to do so through Windows.

Odd thing is, I just recently used a system image to recover the system, and I...
Scrolling with the mouse
I find that I can scroll with the mouse wheel in some programs and not others. For instance in Google I can scroll through the articles no bother. Here in the forum scrolling is no bother. If I go into Word no joy, I have to use the scroll bar. I would like to know if this is a fault of the...
