Question about Computers & Internet
My Dynex optical wired mouse just stopped working. I tried plugging it into several different computers, and it would come on for a second, until I moved it and then the light would go out for a second. If and when the light came back on, the cursor and clicks no longer moved or did anything on screen.
I've had this mouse for several months, and it just randomly stopped working today, so I took it apart and figured out that the problem was originating from the usb cord. At the point where the little wires come out of their sheath and plug into the circuit board, the wire that bears the current was touching the ground wire, causing it to short out when I turned the cord (which explains why it would stop working earlier when I moved the mouse. Seems like the two wires should be insulated until the millimeter before they plug into the board, but they weren't. Too bad most people probably will just throw the mouse away or take it back without realizing what the problem is. I wonder if this is a common problem for others?

Have you tried the Mouse with another computer?
If you did and it worked, my guess would be a driver issue.
If you did and it didn't work there may be a problem with the mouse.
If you haven't the please do so and let me know what your results are so I can try to help you further.
