ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse scroll wheel not working

I have used the ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse for two years and have been very happy with the performance. 

  

Recently, the scroll wheel setting sporadically changes from the selected 3 lines per notch to 1 and requires resetting.  Shortly after this started, as I scroll, the lines scroll forward as expected and then suddenly scroll backwards.  The latest problem is that the left mouse button works inconsistently.  Sometimes it  requires 2 to 5+ clicks to respond. 

  

The ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse was purchased in October 2008 - Model MOBTC9L.

 

Any suggestions for solutions?

Re: ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse scroll wheel not working

Thanks Vince69.  I do have the updated driver and it has not solved the problem.  I un-installed the previous driver before installing the update.

Re: ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse scroll wheel not working

Have you got another computer to test it and see if it's not a problem with the mouse itself ?

Re: ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse scroll wheel not working

I don't have another computer with Bluetooth.  If there are no other obvious solutions, I will look for another Bluetooth enabled computer.

Re: ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse scroll wheel not working

I installed the most recent versions of:

ThinkPad UltraNav Driver and

ThinkPad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software

and my Bluetooth mouse seems to be working as expected.

 

The problem seemed to be context sensitive and not a hardware issue. Happily, I don't need to buy a new mouse...

Re: ThinkPad Bluetooth mouse scroll wheel not working

I spoke too soon.  My Bluetooth mouse worked perfect for 2 months but now sometimes requires more than one click to respond.

 

 Any solutions?  I checked for updates.
