Last week we had mouse problem with randome outage, mouse quit working. i am using usb optical mouse. then it stopped working all together. at that point the monitor was just a rolling screen. when i rebooted windows would start up then shortly after i would get rolling screen again. the last time i rebooted using power button on front it will not power up anymore. if i hold power button in what sounds like the harddrive and or cooling fan does run but as soon as i release button it stops. the button does "click" when pushed but no lights come on indicating harddrive power and windows will not boot.
i am guessing it is motherboard not telling P S to power up with the softstart button?
what i have: HP PAVILLION SLIMLINE S7410N
it has worked flawlessly for less then a year. by the time this gets fixed warranty will fix pc

Had same problem here is solution Open battery cover on mouse, remove the usb dongle (optical mouse drive) put usb mouse dongle in usb port on computer it sets itself up, looks like a standard logitec mouse setup, works just fine
This is a common problem with laptops, unfortunately, there is no real solution of fixing the touch pad. The best solution is to use an external usb mouse. I recomend an optical mouse, they cost about 5 US dollars.
1. try to connect the usb mouse in the other usb ports to check if it works 2. try another usb mouse.
if the usb mouse works in other ports and not in some of them...USB ports gone bad. if it does not work anywhere, the mouse has gone bad. also to check the usb ports check if keybaord works or not. if yes..its just the mouse. it cost approximately $10. go and get a new one.
As you have already stated that the port in question can run a standard optical mouse, the port seems to be working fine.
Sometimes the drivers for a USB device need to be installed for each USB port. Maybe you have installed these drivers for 3 of your 4 USB ports, but not for the one in question, result of which is the problem you face.
