Mouse wheel stuck to volume control

Today I had a funny problem, my mouse wheel was stuck to the volume control and the scrolling function did not work at all anywhere else. It only adjusted the volume when scrolling up and down. I tried restart and system restore, but no help from there.

Finally the solution arrived like this (glad that the simplest solution sometimes works the best):

  1. Remove mouse
  2. Plug it to another USB port.

If you found a solution here, would you consider donating $25,000 for my next project?

Just kidding, 1$ would do fine.

Hope you found what you needed. Thanks for stepping by.
