Question about Computers & Internet
I bought a mouse to use with my laptop as I'm not to fond of touch pads, anyway the computer does detect it and registers it as a HID compliant mouse in device manager. The optical light goes on but the mouse is unresponsive- nothing moves. So far: I have tested the mouse on two other systems/laptops (XP and a vista) it worked on both of them. Confirming the mouse works. I have updated the driver. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the mouse. The laptop in question is an acer aspire v5-571, with windows 8. Any help would be appreciated.

If you have got a USB receiver for the wireless keyboard and mouse, then the solution might be with the receiver. Normally we know that to play a USB thumb drive, we simply plug in and play. But some model of Acer computer require us to press the button on the thumb drive to activate it. The model I had (an Aspire model) set the press button same as the blicking light bulb. So (a) turn on computer, (b) plug in thumb drive receiver (c) press button on the drive, (d) press "contact" button on the mouse and keyboard. That works for me.

SOURCE: MY optical mouse isn't working.
You probably can get it fixed by restarting your system with "Last Known Good Configuration". To do that, reboot your system and hit F8 a few times when it starts booting. If you catch the timing just right, the boot manager will display several options. Select "Last Known Good Configuration".
If it doesn't work after you did that, you can repeat the process but this time select "Safe Mode". After safe mode comes up, you can retore your system to the restore point just prior to the installation of the HID driver that causes your problem. Alternatively, you can remove that HID driver via uninstall if it is available.
