Question about Keyboards & Mice
In device manager there is no Mouse shown... I bought new mouse. unpluged mouse, restarted compt. and reconnected and computer did not recognize mouse It also did not work. tried running virus scan (Avast/also Norton) No virus or worms. tried downloading Drivers from microsoft.. Still no working mouse... Cursor looks larger than normal and is stuck in the middle of screen. I also Updated my Microsoft windows updates. Also reinstalled all applications. Besides this computer is running fine. also all usb ports work as well just not Mouse Ps2 port... any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance.
I kept hold about 30 seconds the blue light button on the USB controller device and it worked!. I guess that's the way to sinchronize both the mouse and the USB controller of the mouse. Ramón.

Hi Sir One suggestion that you could try is this first go into control panel if you have XP when it opens left click Appearance and themes when this box opens you can see a small box at the top left hand side in it you can see mouse pointers open this and you may find how toreset your mous defaults Hope this helps Paddy Get back if it does not

I had the same problem with my new optical mouse. I have a wireless USB mouse, but was tired of changing batteries on it and so I bought a new corded optical mouse that uses a PS2 port. The new mouse didn't work and I searched the entire web endlessly looking for a solution and almost giving up on it.
Any way here is the solution I found that fixed it for me:
1) Control Panel -> Systems -> Hardware -> Device Manager
2) In Device Manger window go to the View menu and select Show hidden devices
3) under Mice and other pointing devices, for me, there was a yellow question mark next to PS2 port. After I right click and uninstalled the PS2 port (with the yellow question mark next to it), my computer automatically shut down and rebooted. I was able to use my optical mouse in the PS2 port afterwards.
I got the solution from another site. It may or may not work for you.

I guess your optical mouse is Ps/2 type optical. I had the same problem.
I bet your new mouse is of 1000 dpi.
Then simply change the DPI settings of your screen:
right click on desktop
go to settings
Go to advanced settings.
Change the dpi setting
and restart the system.
Try this for different DPI settings and one will definitely work.
Hope this helps.

I moved the computer, which worked fine, and unplugged all cords. When I reassembled the computer and plugged the mouse cord into the port on the tower I realized that the holes for the prongs on the back are very battered. The mouse will not work on the computer now. Any solutions to get it to fit snug?

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 mark? right update driver
hope this helps
