I have currently concluded that its not the mouse, b/c the mouse works on another computer. Its not a virus/adware,etc... because i tried using on linux os, and mouse still does not work. I haven't installed any hardware so there should be no inq errors. I think the ps/2 port is busted. I will just buy a usb mouse to fix my problem. Thnx anyways everyone. BTW the forum looks a lot nicer now i think, but i think it may be a bit slower.
My ps/2 mouse abrubtly stops working. It works for a little while and then the cursor stops moving. The mouse is still active as the optical light still brightens up as it passes over the mousepad surfeace. Currently, im using a usb mouse. I tried plugging in another old scroll mouse into the ps/2 port, but that mouse does not work at all. What is causing this, i/o conflicts? I don't think i can change it on this computer, its a cto compaq, i got ~2 years ago. I currently have downloaded the newest drivers for the mouse/keyboard to try and fix. I'll let you know if this solves the problem. Could it be a virus/malware/etc...?Thnx to all.
