Mouse and Service Pack 2

by moofins / August 22, 2006 12:49 PM PDT

I just recently was having some Internet Explorer problems so I uninstalled Windows Service Pack 2 and then reinstalled it, but now for some reason my MX510 (mouse) isn't working with Service Pack 2. The mouse is optical so I see the red light on when its booting up, but once it gets to the Windows XP Professional screen it shuts off. Right now I'm on Service Pack 1. Any clue whats wrong? Thanks.

System Info:

Windows XP
MX510 (mouse)

Not sure what else you need to know for this.

Where would I find the maker of these things? I bought the parts for this computer and a more hardware savvy friend built it for me.

So, if it is not a Dell, HP, Gateway, etc., then you need to download learn the motherboard manufacturer name and model number. Then, go to the motherboard manufacturer's website to find the model and download what you need.

If you need to know the motherboard (system board) information download and run CPU-Z from

I know you uninstalled SP2, but try and see if you can do a roll back.

otherwise, you may have to uninstall the drivers, delete them from he hard drive, remove from the registry, look for new Drivers from the manufacture of the Motherboard for BIOS and USB, and also from Logitech.

I found out that there is no longer a Mice tree on my Device Manager list once I upgrade to SP2. That might have something to do with it.
