Putting in an USB card to replace the now bad ports?
As to possible software angles, boot Safe Mode and remove all mice you find in Device Manager, reboot and try again.
I should start off by saying that one of my USB ports on my desktop is faulty due to being physically bent (I still had my headphones on, they were plugged into the usb and I yanked the cord by accident).It's possible this port and any port on the "same board" (all located on the front of my pc as opposed to being on the motherboard (back pc) give an error. I have used some of these ports without problems in the past though. I might have plugged my new coolermaster into a failing port resulting in an error...The thing is the mouse doesn't respond no matter where it is plugged in (front or back pc). It works without a problem on my laptop so it might be in the registry? (idk i'm a pc novice..)
Second possible source of the problem might be that I unplugged the mouse before it was fully installed...
I tried restarting my desktop in hopes it would recognise the mouse after all but that didn't work.
Any suggestions that might help solve this problem? Thx!
