Windows – the mouse scroll wheel doesn’t scroll

mousemouse-wheelsp3windows xp

It's only a minor thing but i can't solve it.

I have a ps2 mouse on win xp sp3. the wheel has stopped scrolling in all apps however in apps that support it i can click the wheel and bring up the scrolling four way arrows and scroll that way.

I've tried uninstalling the drivers and changing the wheel settings but to no effect.

It obviously recognises the wheel since i can click it.

Any ideas super users?!

The wheel click and wheel rotation are to completely separate sensors. You've got a broken mouse on your hands.
