Solved Why is my wireless mouse inverted backwards

July 27, 2015 at 09:31:29
Specs: Windows 8.1
I have a Trust 18519 mouse and I was just using it and it suddenly changed to inverted (move it up it goes left, move it down it goes right and if you move it right it goes up and move it left it goes down), I have a HP laptop with Windows 8.1 and have now had two of these mice, with my last one wouldn't work at all, with this one, I have taken it out of the USB port and re plugged it, gone to the control panel and gone to mouse settings and haven't found anything for inverted, I have restarted my laptop and I have replaced the batteries in the mouse but still nothing. I cant pinpoint anything that could of caused it, I was just using it normally, like I have for the past 2 weeks. Any ideas on what I can do because I don't really want to go and buy another one again.

I assume it's the same in all USB ports.

Is it the same in another computer? If so better buy a more reliable brand.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Are you sure that you did not accidentally turn the mouse around backwards?
Have you tried turning it around (even if it was the right way) and see if it works right for you. I know that it is weird when I have used a wireless mouse and it gets turned around. I prefer a wired mouse, there are no batteries to change, they are less expensive, and they seem to last forever (nearly).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

✔ Best Answer
What you described is neither "backwards" nor "inverted", but
rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise.

The extra software that can be used with some mice sometimes
allows the user to set the angle that the mouse pointer should
move when the mouse is moved.

However, I Googled your mouse make and model, and quickly
found that other people had the exact same problem, and solved
it by going to and downloading and installing a driver.
They give this as the link to a .zip file which contains an .exe
