Hi guys, sorry but this is really urgent. My PC running windows 7 64bit is unable to detect any mouse.
Here is the problem, recently i updated my nvdia graphic card drivers through DriverMax and together I suppose another intel driver which I can't really remember. Ever since then my mouse started having problem. It was fine the first few times I could simply restart my pc, but today it is completely down. I bought new mouse and it prompted Device drivers cannot be installed blah blah. I tried all ports nothing works. My keyboard/bluetooth dongle and all others devices are working fine except mouse. No mouse can be installed.
I have backed up my old drivers before updating using DriverMax but I can't figure out a way to restore it because no mouse is working and I can't choose anything using keyboard.
By the way, my motherboard is msi TP67B+
I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system
It's worked out well for many of us in the past.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)
You should be able to select most things using arrow keys/tab/enter
Press win key to open start menu
Arrows to select control panel > enter
Arrows to mouse > enter
Select hardware tab then you have access to mouse drivers section
Alternatively hold win key and tap pause key to enter system properties then tap tab to select left list and enter on device manager
hi there, my mouse jumps around the screen, and upon restart neither my mouse or my keyboard would work without unplugging them and re-plugging them in...also i have alot of suspicious processes running that wont turn off and my internet is very jumpy and pages take along time to load...below is my HJT log...thanks for looking

After about 1 minute the mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until I left click mouse. Tool bar on browser also greys out but comes back after left click. Video and sound also are choppy. Not sure if this is related. Flash keeps crashing. Any ideas whats wrong? Windows 7 pro. Asus desktop. This occurs on Firefox, Chrome and IE. This seemed to start after Microsoft update and Flash updates
First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.
Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.
Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.
If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.
Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.
If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.
I purchased an Asus ET2410IUTS-5 All-In-One PC. It came with a wireless full keyboard and mouse combo. The keyboard works fine but the mouse does nothing. All properties say both devices are installed and working properly but the mouse still does nothing. Model number on each device is as follows:
Keyboard - AK1L
Mouse - AM1L
Receiver - AR1L
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, sorry, not very good at this sort of thing, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
1) Thursday night - mouse was working. Sunday evening, mouse is not working.
2) In the device manager it tells me I have two HID-compliant mouse drivers, location: "On USB Input Device" - I only have one USB input for my mouse. I tried disabling one of the drivers to see if it was a conflict problem. No luck.
Any ideas? The mouse is a "Wireless Optical Mouse M/N:SM-502C"

Hello, i happened to have a problem lately with mouse and mouse pointer. Yesterday i was playing a game and my pc suddenly started freezing and laging. So i hard reset him after that i boot into windows 8 and my mouse wasnt working at all. And pointer was no were to be seen either. Today i tried restoring pc but that dont help me. In bios and in advance startup options mouse is working. So i assume its in the windows. My specs are:
intel core i5-3570k 3.8ghz
16 gb ram
Western digital 1TB HDD
nvidia geforce gtx 650 1GB
fsp 750W PSU
I tried everything except reinstalling windows (OS was installed week ago).
I have heard of stability issues on those Gigabyte motherboards where people are having those problems with their mice.
Is your BIOS up to date? maybe it will contain an update on the website for the BIOS that improves system stability.
Is this a PS2 Mouse, or a USB mouse. If a USB, disconnect and then reconnect. If its a USB mouse that is wireless, make sure the battery is good, and if you have another computer, do a test.
Also try to boot from your Windows Installation Media and see if your mouse shows there, could give it a try.
If freezing and lagging during gaming, then could be possible overheating. Do you have a program installed like HWmonitor checking your CPU and GPU thermals. Make sure they aren't getting to hot.
If problem continues to persist. I would start troubleshooting. If you have another computer. or spare hard disk that is SATA, try installing windows on that, and try to duplicate the issue, if it comes back, rule out the hard drive.
Next would be either the GPU, RAM, or Motherboard. You would have to stress test the GPU by using Furmark, or similar program, like MSI Kombuster. If GPU stress test passes, move on to Memory.
while computer is powered down, and PSU off or unplugged. remove and reseat the memory modules, making sure they are fully seated, Do memory diagnostics with memtestx86 or something similar, and do a few passes, If memory check passes, Its more than likely there is a problem with the motherboard.
Weird problem for sure. You... Read more
Recently I installed a Microsoft wireless mouse and it is working. But the wired mouse is now sporadic and at times freezes. I have unplugged the wireless mouse and rebooted several times. Even did a system restore.
Also an Excel spreadsheet stopped working with the wired mouse just freezing the screen completely. Even after rebooting, the Excel will open and eventually I will get a cross hair image. I have tried to update the driver on the wired mouse but it says I already have the most uptodate one. I am running Windows 10 64 bit. I scanned with Malware antimalware and it eliminated over 300 items. I am not sure what is going on.
I hope I don't have a virus. I have Norton 360 with my Comcast subscription but now I cannot even see it in my taskbar. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but nothing happens in Control Panel when I try to uninstall.
I have a Dell XPS desktop. As I write the wired mouse is not functioning. If I unplug the mouse and put it back in the mouse port it works for a minute or so and then just dies. I don't even see the red light at the bottom of the mouse sometimes. I just unplugged the wired mouse and now it is working. So it is very odd behavior. I imagine by the time I post this the wired mouse will freeze again as has been the case. In the interim while I wait for a reply, I'll contact Comcast and see if they can help me with the Norton virus software issue.

The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.
However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.
I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.
Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.
Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.
I'm using my laptop in a desktop mode. but some days when i start up the computer the mouse is on (Sees the red optical light.)
But the cursor dont move when i move the mouse. when i drag the cable out and in again the ligh wont turn on. i change usb port and it works. 1-3 days later the same thing happends and i change to the previous one.
And if i put anything else in the port that stops working it wont recognize. its like it temporarely dies.
Is this becouse of the ports is 3.0 and the mouse is 2.0?
Have 3 usb ports, 1: Keyboard 2-3, Mouse.
Mouse: Logitech Gaming mouse g400.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.
I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.
I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.
While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.
The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

This is very frustrating and I am at my wits end. I have tried 5 different wireless mice and two wireless keyboards with nearly no success.
HP Wireless mouse. Returned to store.
Logitech mk320 mouse/keyboard combo
Logitech m325 (two different ones)
iHome Mouse (works best actually)
Logitech v220 wireless mouse (very old)
Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard 1000
With all of the mice I experience issues where the pointer disappears or seems stuck on elements on the screen, for example, the pointer seems to get stuck on the edges of windows. Pointer motion is erratic at best. With the mk320 and m325 mice the pointer does not stay in one place long enough along with the windows scroll up or down a line or two which leaves me with the pointing device version of "whack-a-mole" attempting to click on something. The v220 is a very old mouse and while it works is resolution is fairly low.
With the microsoft mouse it sometimes stops working and needs to be reset. The keyboard does the same and needs batteries removed and replaced. Sometimes that doesnt work and I need to reboot.
With the keyboard on the mk320 combo some keys don't work consistently and sometimes no keys work. Cycling power fixes the no keys issues, moving the keyboard away from the computer fixes the keys that don't work consistently otherwise.
This issue has persisted with windows 8.0 and 8.1 with two different motherboards. At no point has the wireless transceiver a... Read more
Hi jenny4, welcome ...
You obviously sound like you're no newbie to computers so forgive me for asking this but have you checked for Malware lately?
Needless to say, the fact that some mice work better than others is strange.
I just recently reinstalled Windows XP on my computer, my USB keyboard is working fine, but my mouse is not working, I tried it in all the USB ports for it and I am getting no response, I am getting a curser on screen but no movement nor am I able to click.

Quite often the mouse stops working. It?s not the mouse itself that it is the problem as the same mouse works on other computers okay. It also makes no difference if it?s a wireless mouse, a USB mouse or a serial mouse.
Restarting the computer doesn?t fix the mouse problem. However if I turn off the computer unplug all connections, (mouse, monitor, speakers etc) reconnect them all again, turn back on the computer the mouse will work for another day or two.
What I?ve done is take it to a computer repair place who replaced the power supply; I?ve since taken it back to the same computer repair shop when the replacing of the power supply hasn?t worked. However they seem incapable of fixing this problem, because of course once they connect a mouse, monitor etc the mouse starts to work again.
If I look on "Human Interface Devices" on that computer it only shows one device. It says that a Microsoft USB wheel mouse is working correctly, but the mouse in question on that computer is actually a serial mouse. None of the USB ports etc are showing up (?)
Anyone have any suggestions? (My computer knowledge is complete beginner) Maybe this is a hardware problem and perhaps I shouldn't be here...if so please forgive me and be kind

Welcome to the forums.
Been a while since I had a laptop, but I seem to remember there being a setting on what to do with the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in. Unfortunately I don't remember where and have no way of finding it.
Have you tried rebooting with the mouse unplugged?
Sorry I can't be of more help. The manual for the laptop ought to have that info in it somewhere.
I recently performed a repair of windows xp on my desktop pc, i cannot now get my usb plug and play mouse to work, the usb ports are working fine, when i plug the mouse in it gives a noise so that it is reconizing it.
The mouse also works fine when i plug it into my laptop, i would appreciate any help
Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Peripherals or some such. Look for Legacy USB or USB Mouse or some such and if it is disabled, Enable it. Save and Exit.
Go to Start/Run (Windows key + R) and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager any devices with yellow flags need to have drivers installed.
What is the Make and Model# of your computer? On an internet computer, Go to the manufacturers support/download drivers and type in your make and model# or your service tag # and download the Chipset driver (USB Support) and any other drivers you need in the Device Manager. If not this computer, save them to a USB Flash Drive and transfer them over to the troubled computer.
You can also go to the mouse manufacturers support/download drivers site and download any drivers for you mouse.
My mouse pad is not functioning properly. I can move the cursor around but when I tap the mouse pad it doesn't click, I have to click the button on the bottom and I also cannot scroll with the pad anymore. It was working this morning and then all of a sudden I could no longer click or scroll by the mouse pad. I already went to the setting and looked and it says that it's enabled and I even restored to the default setting because that helped last time but it didn't help this time.

My Mom has a Compaq evo n600c laptop with windows xp. The mouse has quit working. It is not usb It is a touch pad. I had her reboot, I even told her how to shut down and start up in safemode, still does not work. I do not know what to do. Also for some reason her recycle ben Icon on her desktop is highlighted and she says a message keeps popping up that she has 3 programs running. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
I have Windows XP Home SP2 on an HP Pavilion desktop. My web searching skills are improving, but sometimes I just can't seem to find what I am looking for. My problem: Once or twice a month, after bringing my PC out of standby, the mouse has stopped working. (Logitech MX1000 wireless laser mouse.) I've tried re-installing, updating drivers, etc.; nothing has worked. The only solution I have found is to press the Windows key on the keyboard and navigate my way to a re-boot using the arrow keys. That works, but I am wondering if I could just find a way to shut down and re-start the mouse program only (KEM.exe, I believe), if that would work. If it did, it would surely be much faster than re-booting the entire PC. In fact, I happen to have a Microsoft keyboard with several shortcut keys that I do not use. It would be really neat if it were possible to program a couple of these to stop and start the mouse program. Could even just one key be set up to stop AND restart the mouse program? These are all just thoughts; my first goal is to find out if re-starting the mouse program can be done at all using only the keyboard. Thank you to all who take the time to reply.
One of the things I liked about Windows 3.11 (eek!) was the keyboard commands. Microsoft has wisely kept keyboard commands, and even added a few.
You could try this. I'm not familiar with your mouse so I'm not sure it'll work, but it'll allow you to close the program and then manualy activate it.
Press <CTRL><ALT><DEL> to bring up the Windows Task Manager (or, alternatively, <CRTL><SHIFT><ESC>)
Use the <TAB> and arrow keys to go to the "Processes" tab.
Use the <TAB> and arrow keys to highlight the KEM.exe process.
Press Delete to end the process and then <ENTER> to confirm.
Press <ALT><F4> to close the Task Manager.
Press the <Windows key><E> (the letter "e", that is) to open Windows Explorer.
Use the <TAB> and arrows keys to navigate to the KEM.exe program file (you may want to make a shortcut in an easily accessible location) and press <ENTER> to start it.

As part of trying to install a new joystick on my computer I was adviced to remove all entries under HID Devices in Device Manager.
This led to my mouse, which was one of those entries, to stop working.
When I plug it in Windows will try to install a correct driver, but does not succeed.
I wonder if You could help me fix this somehow, as it is rather time consuming to use the computer, especially the internet, with only a keyboard.
I got into the Device Manager through Start->Run->devmgmt.msc, and the mouse is listed under HID Devices as "Optical USB Mouse", with the telltale yellow exclamation mark next to it. Its status is "This device is not configured correctly (Code 1)., and it shows no driver under the driver tab.
Thank You very much,
today i was on my comp and the mouse ive been using for like a year just stopped worked. i unplugged it and plugged it back into the usb port and it work again , then 5 minets later it stops working again , and sais that its an unknow device , ive tried plugging it into all the diffrent usb ports , reinstalling it and it still does the same thing.
1.Go into the device Manager and uninstall the USB controllers,then restart the computer.
2.Try a different mouse.
My mouse has stopped working after I unplugged it from the USB port for a few minutes this morning. The red laser is working on the bottom of it, but it's not responding when I try to move the mouse.
I have tried two different USB ports and also have tried restarting.

I left for work this morning and my mouse was working fine, I shut off the comp before leaving. When I got home I booted up the computer and the mouse is not being recognized at the windows log on screen. I've swapped another mouse in and the same non responsive mouse occurs. When I go into bios the keyboard is recognized and I can navigate in there. However at the windows log on screen I can't use my keyboard to log on to windows.
So my question is two fold.
1. How do I log on to windows 7 using only a keyboard?
2. What would cause a working mouse to stop being recognized when the computer was off all day? Any help will be appreciated.
Edit: Nevermind about log on using only keyboard. Keyboard is not being recognized by windows 7 either at log on screen. However it is recognized in bios and selecting between safe mode / normal start up.
Just press Space button at the login screen.Read other 6 answers
I've searched the forums and found some similar situations but none of the possible solutions worked for me.
My problem is that my usb mouse is correctly recognized by W7 x64 (no exclamation points in device manager) but it refuses to work, the mouse arrow doesn't moves...
The curious is that the first time I booted into W7, the mouse worked but in the next boots I had to "Deactivate" and "Activate" the mouse in the device manager.
I've already uninstalled/reinstalled the mouse and connected it to the other USB ports (wich I'm sure that works because I can connect pen drives that work flawlessly).
An additional note might be that this same mouse works fine under Vista (is there a way to use Vista generic drivers in W7?)
AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz
ATI Radeon 4890 1Gb DDR5
Mouse: Trust Wireless Laser Mouse MI-7500X
Thank you in advance!
BUMP... Still unsolved!
Please ppl, someone post some thoughts/ideas to solve my problem... I can't understand why a simple usb mouse doesn't work with the W7 drivers... Is there such thing as incompatible mice with W7?
When I use the right mouse all that happens is a circle going around and around. It take a long time before the right mouse works. Sometimes it never works. What can I so?
Try booting into safemode and check if right click works
My mouse stopped working. I tried changing to another mouse but have the same problem. I've tried every USB port but that makes no difference. Occationally I can get it to work for a few seconds, but notlong enough for me to do anything. Could it be I need more memory? Before this started, it was an occasional thing. I started deleting unused games and other unused files. Now I can't get anything out of it. I did get it up in safe mode and ran a virus scan but it came back ok. Any suggestions?
Ok, its kind of tricky to do without a mouse, but I just went and did it, so its possible.
You need to get into the device manager and remove your mouse (uninstall driver). Also it wouldn't hurt to do the same for your USB.
To do it. Windows Key then arrow over to control panel and hit enter. Then arrow down to system, hit enter. Hit tab until you see a dotted box around General, then hit right arrow til you get to hardware, then hit tab to get that box around Device Manager and hit enter. Hit tab then arrow down to your mouse and hit the + key. Arrow down so you have the mouse highlighted hit enter. Tab until the box is around General again, then right arrow to Driver, then tab until Uninstall. Hit enter, hit enter again.
Do same for your USB hubs.
am using Windows 7 on my acer 6930 laptop and my mouse is not working. It works on my friends' laptops. It doesn't even get detected under the mouse and pointing devices in the device manager. It's only detected under the Universal Serial Bus Controllers as USB composite device and also under the Human Interface devices. The mouse lights up and all but it doesnt do anything to the pointer and am currently using my touchpad.
PLEASE HELP !
sorry for double posting but i'd like to add another thing,
I also uninstalled the device and installed it again and it still doesn't work. It only works on my friends' laptops. And I also tried with another different mouse
My mouse randomly freezes for short instants of time, then works again. I use a corded Logitech MX518 mouse through a USB port in WinXP. When it happens, the cursor freezes, the red light from underneath the mouse stops, and windows makes the usual "a USB device has been unplugged/plugged-in" sound. The frequency of the freezing is much higher when I play CounterStrike. If the mouse is left alone, it does not appear to ever freeze.
Rebooting seems to midly alleviate the problem, but very temporarily. I've tried other USB ports to no avail and I have a 420 watt power supply. When I use the PS2 adapter, the frequency of the freezing is considerably lower, but if it does go out with a PS2 I'm pretty much screwed as Windows will not re-detect my mouse. I use default drivers, not Logitechs, but I did have this same problem ages ago with my Microsoft IntellMouse 3.0. If anyone has a similar problem, please mention it and the things you tried, successful or not. Thanks for you help.

There is a setting in BIOS setup to assign an IRQ for VGA (under pnp). You can disable it if you like.
i have not been able to delete the ps2 from reloading, could this be conflicting with a new mouse driver (intellimouse elplorer wireless) newest driver installed, does not work...uninstalled then reinstalll. several things tried...still loading the ps/2 mouse. I am using a laptop, touch pad works fine...wireless mouse not moving, lights on etc. said driver is sinstalled correctly, removed and when reboot loads the ps/2 again?
not sure what to do next, restored. tec. tried may things, might ahve mad it worse, but touch pad works,
The Microsoft Explorer mouse (the Blue Track version) is not an Intellimouse. Make sure you select the Explorer mouse when you install the software (or change it in the settings and reboot). Neither mouse uses PS/2. Both are USB mice. If there is a conflict, it's with your USB and PS/2. It has nothing to do with the mouse.
Try uninstalling the software and just use the mouse. Windows 98 and up already fully support the mouse and don't need the additional software.
Hi, really could use your help. On startup mouse will not work. It's a PS2 generic mouse with wheel that has been working in the past. I tried a different mouse and it still doesn't work. Rebooting does not help. Did a system restore and mouse worked for 10 or 15 minutes then stopped, frozen. Using tab and other keys I managed to get into driver screen. There was no mouse driver shown, empty. Trouble shooting said no driver present. Later some how it started to work long enough to down load a mouse drive with wheel from MS. It again worked for 10-15 minutes and stopped. It starts to fail by first having jerky motion, freezes, un freezes and the stops completly. Again, got into drive screen and mouse driver was gone...empty. Ran a disc clean-up, defrag, spyware and antivirus with no help. I'm a novice at this so any help would be appriecated. This is a used computer someone gave me 2years ago and I don't have XP CD's. Also, SP2 is installed. Please, when responding, don't use any abbreviations or mid-high level terms. I'm a novice, keep it simple. Thanks in advance.
Welcome! Somebody correct me, but I think PS2 mouses are old, old and require an adapter to plug into the right place. I remember having to toss a perfectly good mouse when I upgraded my machine (hard and software); The new ones don't have a ball, they use laser light and are sooo nice; and they have a wheel so you can scroll down a page without having to click and hold. I got a Logitech from BigLots for $8 when they are $28 everywhere else.
I think I read somewhere a condition when a mouse won't work in Safe Mode. Also, was it plugged in when you did your system restore? It should have been, but it sounds like you have given it every opportunity to get a driver; cannot imagine why it does not work, except its not plugged into the same place it was before you did the restore? Or you didn't put the adapter in and plugged it somewhere else? Or there's a short in the cord?
Mouses with a ball do get dirty, and you can sort of clean it, maybe use the vacuum? Why don't you do a search on PS2 mouse and see what you can learn about them. Also, if you go to start - my computer - control panel - system - device manager - hardware you can copy and paste your machine description into Notepad and then fill in some of the blanks describing your machine on your intro sheet.
I hope you don't think I'm asking dumb questions; I started a topic "No sound after system restore" that's getting full of boo-boo stories about plugs and swit... Read more

Have you tried reinstalling FireFox? Because if it's only happening with that program then perhaps there's either a bug that hasn't been addressed or a file could be damaged.
Have you also tried other Explorers? (Internet Explorer, so on.) And do you have the same problem with them?
Hey i am having a problem with using ps\2 mice on a computer, this computer was recently cleaned of malware and i have been using a usb mouse but now when i try a ps\2 mouse it does not work
Device manager sees the mouse and when i unplug the mouse and restart it doesnt see it (obviously). I have tired reinstalling the drivers (unistalled and let windows reinstall then) and ps\2 mouse support is on in bios and the mouse works in other computers.
If anyone could guide me in the right derection it will be apprecianted

I'm confused so I'll ask a question, you've said that you unplugged the PS/2 mouse and plugged it back in again and found that it does not respond as a USB mouse. Did you say you've restarted the machine after you plugged back in the PS/2 mouse? As that was the beauty of the USB mouse Windows, will mount the required drivers for you where as the PS/2 mouse requires a system restart to mount the drivers at the BIOS level. (Is it an "Intellimouse" ?)
And check the PINS are not bent or missing (even slightly misaligned could cause a fault)
And a further note if you're tired go to bed - you're human and as such you are expected to sleep
I have a hp slimeline 5600 3ghz amd 3gb ram 500+gb hd with windows 7 x64 and cannot get any usb mouse to operate and i have tried 3 different ones and they work on other machines. the usb keyboard works fine so i have to navigate with the keyboard. i checked in device manager and the mouse is listed with an exclamation point and when i look at the description there it says something like "error code 19 the informatiion in the registry keys is missing or corrupted". i tried to do a restore but that didnot work. i am under the immpression usb is not included in system restore backups. please help, almost sounds like a reinstall issue. thanks in advance. also the mouse works in repair mode and when i out in any kind of live cd/dvd (did not make any changes with live cd/dvd)
Are the other machines where the mouse works running 32 bit Windows?
Have you tried a different USB port?
I have a Dell Vostro 200 running Windows XP. I bought a new keyboard and mouse but when it loads up the keyboard and mouse don't work. I tried connecting it to the internet so it could obtain the drivers automatically but that didn't work. I then tried to start in safe mode they still didn't work. I checked the BIOS and the USB was enabled. I ran Hiren's boot CD and both the mouse and keyboard work on the Hiren's mini XP OS. I'm stumped can anyone help me please.
I tried both rebooting to last know good config and restoring to an earlier config, neither worked. I am now downloading an XP ISO to try and use it to repair the OS on the PC.
I have a Home made desktop and everything was perfect. I need to install a "PCI Video card with HDMI" and my mouse stop working after installation.
I have to do this because the HDMI of the Motherboard " Gigabyte" stop working.
I would remove the card, re-enable onboard video in the BIOS (if previously disabled). Restart the system...do you still have mouse problems?
Everytime I turn on my computer a window pops up saying:
Windows did not detect a mouse attached your computer. You can safely attach a serial mouse to your computer now. To attach a mouse to a PS/2 mouse port, youmust first turn the computer off.
And then it says OKAY. This never used to happen before. This mouse is a new mouse so nothing could be wrong with it. I tried unplugging and plugging but still nothing happened. Please help me as soon as possible.
Have you tried a different mouse? Any new electronic equipment can fail shortly after you buy it. I had a new scanner fail on the 4th scan.
Ps/2 mouse not detected at startup. Yes, mouse is plugged in. "Add new hardware" does not find any new mouse. I can add the mouse myself in "Add new hardware", but mouse still not working. Device manager shows mouse with exclamation point icon. I removed the mouse in device mgr and restarted, still no mouse detected. Any suggestions?
Your mouse is not connected to an adapter is it?
Have you tried a different mouse?
Do you have a serial mouse you can try? The PS/2 mouse port may be bad.
Dear support I have a Probook 430 G3 from spring 2016 with Windows 10 installed. After login in the mouse-pad stops working and I cannot enter the apps or use them. I wonder if I have pressed something wrong at a certain time - re-starting does not help. kind regards, HenrikRead other answers
