I have a jnl-101k mouse (see It doesn't have any drivers to download, and Vista reports that the driver is up to date. However the side buttons don't work in web-browsers for back and forward. I've tried it on another PC running Windows 7 and had the same behaviour so I'm beginning to suspect that the buttons simply aren't working.

Wondering if anyone has any similar experience or advice?

Asked the same question to the supplier who sent a new mouse. The side buttons on that work fine, so turns out it was a hardware failure.

At the moment I'm using it on an old laptop running Windows XP and I must say the side buttons do work. But I was looking for drivers to reverse the back and forward buttons, which to me are not in the correct order.

"An old laptop" what laptop? What mouse? this is extremely vague – Simon Sheehan Feb 28 '12 at 0:51
@Observer Did you have to install drivers for it? – Louis Nov 3 '12 at 17:36
