I use the scroll wheel on my mouse alot in autocad to zoom in and out and atmies to scroll up and down a list in standard windows programs.

Problem is after some time the scrolling become eratic. What could be the cause and also solution to the problem.

Hello Akinlolu,

The reason is probably dust which has accumulated below the scroll wheel over time.

You can unscrew the mouse remove the wheel and clean it with alcohol or something similar.

Of course getting a new mouse is another option. :P

Will give the cleaning a shot. It being long since I did this typs of cleaning in the days of track ball mouse, the ball was always clean, it the rollers that picks up the dirt from the ball.

A new mouse soon goes to this state of eraticness after a few weeks.

thanks for the tip

Have you installed the proper mouse software (from its manufacturer) or it just uses some generic Windows drivers? Maybe you could start from there, before you disassemble the mouse ;)

It is a generic windows driver. No installation software came with the mouse.
Gotten another one for now so should I pull this apart and cannot put it back together again, I would not be mouseless

"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
