If this is some USB MOUSE (your post doesn't tell) then try it in each USB port.
Be sure to unplug that USB MOUSE then count to 5 or 10 then put it in the next port. Then wait about 1 minute for Windows to find and get it setup.
Hope this helps,
I'm old and tired. When you're past seventy and new-fangled machinery stops working you don't feel much like blazing a trail and making a name for yourself in the latest technology. What's the point? Just get someone to help, or even do it for you.
So I fixed my errant PC (which wouldn't start Windows up [again]) by employing the regular trick of taking the side off and pressing all plugs I could see and touch firm into their sockets; and then as usual Windows started up OK. Easy. Works every time. But this time when I went to click my name-icon to move from the administrator's screen the mouse arrow would not move.
In fact, with both keyboard and mouse, nothing worked. I exchanged both with those on my No. 2 machine - Nothing.
We've all encountered this minor problem, but it normally rights itself following restart and/or changing the gear - but not this time.
So I'm now on this old and slow No. 2
What can I do, What can I do?
Please help me do.
Windows XP Home, 129 gig, loads of free everything.
Been working like a dream for seven months, since the last lapse.
