Question about Computers & Internet

I have an old hp pavilion slimline s7320n and the mouse that came with it finally died on me. I purchased a usb plug-n-play mouse to replace it, but the computer does not recognize it. I have tried an old ps/2 connection mouse and that does not work either. Advice?

make sure the batteries are inserted correctly and have charge if applicable

make sure the usb device is properly inserted

make sure you turn the mouse on depending on type/brand of mouse it will vary it could be a button or switch on top bottom

or you might use the safe mode option

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer then if your mouse works

click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question/exclamation mark? ! or a red X right update driver
hope this helps

Strange, but try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 during boot. Choose safe mode with arrow keys and enter. sometimes it can take awhile to load. Use Windows key on keyboard. Windows > Start > run (search in win7) > type devmgmt.msc. This will load Device Manager. Go to View > Show hidden device in case they are not already showing. Delete all Mice and reboot with USB mouse attached. It should pick it up.

Use the Tab and Alt keys to navigate without a mouse.

SOURCE: No Sata, intermitantly just locks up and reboots on it's own.

Random computer reboots can be difficult to diagnose. Try the following:
1) Check event viewer for messages that could be related. (Control Panel >Administrative Tools >Event Viewer) These could point you in the right direction.
2) PC could be overheating. Many motherboards have a utility you can install to display the CPU and motherboard temperature. I have read the maximum operating temperature for the AMD 9850 is 61C (142F). You can also see the CPU and motherboard temperature via the BIOS. If heat is an issue try installing extra or more efficient case fans, run the PC with the side panel off or maybe get a better heatsink/fan for the CPU if you are using the stock AMD offering.
3) If the inside of the case fairly clean? I see many PC's full of dust which prevent the cooling fan working efficiently causing the PC to overheat and reboot. If your CPU heatsink is covered in dust give it a careful makes a lot of difference.
4) Check for loose cables. Reseat any that look suspect.
5) Remove one of the harddrives and see how it runs. If fine take it out and try the other. If fine try them both. (this may be difficult if one of them is your system drive) If one appears to be at fault test it in another PC and if the fault follows the drive take it back for a swap.
6) Could be that your power supply is not powerful enough. What wattage rating is your Power Supply? You can see this on a sticker on the PSU but you will need to open the case to see it. Your CPU sucks upto 125 watts and video card up to 150 watts depending on model. Depending on the exact model of video card I would think the minimum PSU rating you would need would be 550-650watts....more to be safe. Maybe adding the harddrives just pushed the PSU over its limit?
7) Computer reboots and freezes are often related to bad memory. Could be that when you installed the HDD's a bit of static electricity found its way to the RAM? (unlikely but stranger things have happened) Do a memtest. Maybe take out one stick of ram and test. Then swap over and use the other stick and try and isolate a bad stick. Test each stick for hours, not minutes. When I test ram I drop down the size of the pagefile and run heaps of programs to ensure the ram is being fully utilised and tested.

Good luck and please reply with any comments.

SOURCE: My computer won't recognize my logitech USB headset

Okay, I've had the same problem with their keyboards and mice, first you uninstall and reinstall the driver, if that doesn't help go to start>run then open MSCONFIG. Then find the services and re-enable all of them, along with all the startup entries.

Desktop keyboard keeps dying

Have you connected any other USB devices that could be draining power? Try to disconnect everything but your mouse and keyboard and see if the problem comes back, if this rectifies the issue get a powered USB hub to connect the rest of your devices.
Also check that the USB bandwidth and power level limits are not being exceeded, I have attached a picture

Start up Probelms HP Pavilion Slimline

Unplug the AC power, remove the battery, wait a full minute and then reinstall AC and battery. See, if you now power up. Most power up problems are related to AC power, DC input jack, motherboard, memory or processor. A lot depends on your comfort level and expertise in how far you should go in self diagnosis and repair. Good Luck.
