  1. my computer wont recognize when i push on the scroll wheel. the scrolling works fine but when i push it nothing happens, for example when trying to 'auto-scroll' or in any game that has an action assigned to that button.

    is this an issue with a driver or the hardware itself. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and that didn't fix it. i cant think of anything else to do.
    any suggestions?

    First thing I would have suggested you have already done: Uninstall and then reinstall.

    Do they have any updated drivers? If so try that and if that doesn't work then you may correct in your suspicion that this is a hardware issue.
