Hey there

So i just got replaced my wireless laser mouse (Logitech MX620 - www.logitech.com/en-ca/428/2987?WT.z_sp=Image) with a new one (same model - old one broke)...

now however, the volume and mute hotkeys on the mouse do not work (everything else does, including back and forward)... i downloaded the drivers from the logitech website, and it got me to install setpoint.exe version 6.0... everything then worked, however, it seems to be using a lot of memory...

the first mouse i had allowed me to use the volume up/down/mute buttons... i didnt have to install special drivers, nor was there an extra process running (with setpoint.exe turned on, both setpoint.exe and KHALMNPR.exe are running processes, which together use about 25MB of RAM)

is there another program that uses less? im not looking for a lot of hot keys on my mouse... just volume up, down and mute, and back and forth

thanks!

did you try uninstalling all the logitech junk trough control panel and unplug and replug the mouse and let plug and pray do it's thing?
sometimes it will just work.
maybe the old drivers were corrupt.

hey there... yeah i tried that... i have no special drivers installed right now, and so the two volume buttons and the mute button dont do anything...

the logitech ones are nice, its just that they are a bit of a resource hog... i tried ipoint, the microsoft set, but they dont work...

I wonder if you could install the Logitech drivers and just shut down the added services if the hotkeys would still work?

well, this program - volumouse - works ok, and uses only about 4mb memory...

i just hold down a key and move the mousewheel, and i can set it to perform a volume task.

problem solved enough for me.
