Random mouse look problem

Just loaded Quake, and not played it in a while and have updated my laptop etc within that time.
Seems I can not free look while moving/strafing now… Tried all the game mouse settings but still nothing…
Must be a configuration setting somewhere in windows that’s inverted/changed…
Any help would be good thanks. Keen to play some new maps soon.

How do you normally use free look?

Which engine (.exe) do you use?

have you tried typing +mlook in the console?
that’s the only thing that has ever worked for me anytime I encountered mouse issues.
