    Dear Group:
    I recently got from by cousin a Compaq Presario 1725 laptop running Win98 SE
    with a Touch Pad mouse. I installed a Belkin combination USB PS2/Wheel
    Optical Mouse and the system will not recognize it in the Control Panel as a
    two button mouse with a scroll wheel. I have no left click functionality
    except for Select. I can only simulate double-clicking by right-clicking and
    selecting Open from the menu. I checked the Control Panel >Mouse and Device
    Manager-which showed no drivers loaded. The driver appears in Add/Remove
    Programs! I uninstalled/reinstalled, etc-same problem. I could not find a
    way to disable the Touch pad in the CMOS. The Device Manager lists two mice:
    HID compliant and PS2/Wheel and states that they are "working properly". Do
    I need to do a complete restore or what?
    At wits end..thanks for your prompt replies

    Were there drivers or software for the mouse? Win98SE does not have
    built-in support for wheel mice, AIRC. I am suspicious that you cannot
    double-click left. Can you double-tap with the touchpad or do you need
    to use the keys? At the least, you need software to set up the wheel
    function. If there is an entry in Add/Remove, you might have setup
    software installed also that you have not yet seen.
