1) Shut down the computer (you can hold down the power button on the front of the computer base unit or laptop power button for a few seconds instead of using the mouse) 2) Unplug the mouse base station. 3) Plug the mouse base station in again 4) Turn on the computer and let it start up as normal. 5) Watch for any system messages appearing, like found new hardware.
These steps will verify that there is not a problem with the mouse's base station plugged into the computer. Another thing to check is if the mouse requires batteries, this is often overlooked.
If after doing this there is still no pointer registered, i would suggest trying the mouse in another computer, and if possible trying a different mouse on the same computer.
If the mouse works on another computer then it could be a software problem, which we can help you with.
If the mouse doesn't work on another computer, but a different mouse works fine on the same computer, then im afraid your mouse has to be replaced.
Please post back after trying the above steps and let us know. Telling us which mouse you have exactly will futher help. Hope this helps.
IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE MAY HAVE DRIVERS OR IRQ THAT ARE CONFLICTING, TRY UNINSTALLING THE DRIVERS FOR YOUR WIRELESS MOUSE, AND REINSTALLING THEM, MAKE SURE THE WIRELESS MOUSE IS UNHOOKED BEFORE YOU REINSTALL THE DRIVERS.
You might think about a USB hub for all your USB devices. ps2 port is more or less dedicated for mouse, which is why your mouse pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen. Go ahead and get an externally powered USB Hub to power other USB devices. To answer, ps2 for mouse needs just a mouse, not USB device.
Thanks! I fixed the problem by installing a USB mouse and using fn+f9. That unlocked the mouse so I could use the pointer leaving just the keyboard problem. I then tried reconnecting the wireless keyboard (by using the button on the receiver and under the keyboard) Hey Presto!!
Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button
on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to
the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button
and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you
change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud
