Scroll wheel doesn't work for IntelliMouse PS/2

Scroll wheel doesn't work for IntelliMouse PS/2

This is WIN2000 SP4 on a IBM Thinkpad A31.

The scroll wheel doesn't work for IntelliMouse PS/2 when it is plugged
into the port replicator (no PS/2 port on laptop). Mouse, right and
left buttons work fine.

The scroll wheel on a MS Optical USB mouse works fine in either the
laptop or port replicator USB port.

I installed the recommended MS IntelliMouse driver and can select and
test the buttons, but the wheel does not scroll.

I have swapped with PS/2 IntelliMouse that scrolls on another host.

Any idea on how to debug this?

Not familiar with the A series, but some of the older Thinkpads
required that you disable the onboard pointing mechanism (Trackpoint)
before using an external pointing device.
