....swapping in a PS2 mouse and testing it? If it works correctly, then the problem is probably an issue with the mouse, or mouse software. If the optical device is malfunctioning or the mouse software has become corrupted, then a regular PS2 mouse should work fine.
You could try uninstalling, then reinstalling the mouse software and see if it helps, but if the mouse if faulty, replacement is the answer.
Hope this helps.
I'm trying to help my neighbour with her computer. It is a year old HP Proteva with windows XP home edition. She has an optical mouse and right now it won't respond at all. When you turn the computer on everything boots up okay and the cursor for the mouse just sits there in the middle of the screen and it won't go anywhere when you move the mouse or click. Would any of you nice guys and gals out there in cnet land know what I could try to find out what's wrong?
Thanx for considering.
its only boo.
