Strange Mouse Trouble

by PsionicArchon / April 10, 2007 7:42 AM PDT

Im having a very strange error with my mouse which has simply decided not to work properly anymore.

It is a dynex usb mouse dx-om101. when I plug it in it goes through the normal process of auto installing the drivers and will work for about 15 to 30 seconds then it will simply just stop make a sound like its been disconnected and reconnected work for a bit then just stop for good. When I unplug it and plug it in again it will tell me it cant recognize the usb device or there has been a problem with it.

I have tried everything I could think of from reinstalling the mouse and usb port/controller drivers to searching for product drivers and had no luck what so ever. I tested the mouse in a similar computer where the same drivers were auto installed (HID-compliant mouse) and it worked perfectly no cutting out. I am using an hp dv8000 laptop.

I have no idea what could be causing this if anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

These things do fail so don't limit your test to just this mouse.

Also, in the event that the loaded driver may become corrupt, it may be necessary to reload the driver from the Disk.

Also, sometimes it helps to install a piece of hard ware while the computer is turned off. And [then] turn the computer on using the power button.

Hope this is helpful.
