Time to change the batteries for your mouse?
So my mouse is not showing up installed on my computer. It's an old optical Microsoft Intellimouse. It's been working since I installed it on this computer(2 years ago). I have tried removing the mouse, shutting down then plugging it back in, but when I start up it still doesn't show up. It just all of a sudden uninstalled. I tried restoring my computer, using restore points, to a few days ago when it was working but no luck. I also tried going to Microsoft's website and installing the intellipoint software but again no luck. In my Device manager, there is no mouse or pointing device subsection. When I try to use an old mouse I have lying around it works again. Does this just mean that the Intellipoint Mouse is broken? Should I just buy a new mouse? Thanks for your help.
