I recently bought a wireless mouse (Wireless Laser Mouse 5000).
Love it, except when I play games.

I decided to try to plug in my old wired mouse (Wheel Mouse Optical) at the same time, but now I'm having problems with it probably because I had to install the drivers for my wireless to work.

Both of them are Microsoft mouses using the Intellipoint 6.3 drivers.

The problem is the scrolling. It's incredibly slow and "laggy", and the scrolling speed configuration doesn't change a thing.

It used to work before when my computer didn't have any mouse drivers.

I've searched over the net and tried all sorts of things in the hardware config panel.

The only solution I can come up with is to disable the drivers BUT ONLY for the wired mouse (Wheel Mouse Optical).

Can someone tell me if this is possible without completely uninstalling Intellipoint ?

Basically, I want Intellipoint to recognize my wireless mouse but not the wired one.

Thanks.

Hi there,

Yes, this should be possible, although I have never tried. I'd try going into the Device Manager while both mice are connected and installed. Select the wired mouse in the list and choose Update Driver. Choose to select the driver manually, and to pick it from a list. Next, choose the most generic mouse driver you have, such as "Generic PS/2 Mouse", "Generic Mouse", etc. Something along those lines. It may give you an error, but just continue. After that, you may have to reboot. When you are done, your wireless mouse should be recognized by IntelliPoint, but not the "Generic" wired one.

Hope this helps.

THANK YOU!
Yep, it works now.

Although everytime I remove the wired mouse and plug it back in, it goes back to the Intellipoint driver. Nothing major though. It takes a second to change.

I'm wondering though why Intellipoint, recommended by the Microsoft's website, screws up my mouse.

Thanks again.
