If it is a standard new USB mouse and won'r work on your laptop, so it is not working, return it to the shop where you bought it and claim your warranty so is should be changed.

SOURCE: Logitech M-BJ58 USB optical mouse win xp issue

Hello dcipher,

This is due to a missing Windows file called input.inf. The solution is as follows:
In Windows XP, you can use the MSCONFIG utility as described in the following steps:

  1. Click Start->Run.
  2. Type msconfig in the Open field, and then click OK.
  3. Click the Expand File button.
  4. Type input.inf in the File to restore box.
  5. Type the path of the Windows XP .cab file where you want to restore the file from in the Restore from box. If you don't know the patch, click the Browse From button to locate the Windows XP .cab file.
    Note: The Windows XP .cab files are stored in the I386 folder on the Windows XP CD.
  6. Type C:\windows\inf\ in the Save file in box. This assumes that Windows XP was installed to the default directory. If Windows was not installed to the default directory, you will need to adjust the path to point to the correct directory.
  7. Click the Expand button.
  8. Click OK. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.
After extracting the file and restarting, try installing the mouse software again. You should no longer see this error message.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied.

SOURCE: Unresponsive mouse XP unable to initialize device driver for Logitech LX8 laser mouse

Your best course of action would be to use System Restore, based on your response above. Go back to the point where everything worked for you and don't attempt to update your driver again. If it works, don't fix it.

After that if there was something you wanted to accomplish, let us know and we can help you.

SOURCE: Dynex wireless mouse DX-PWLMSE won't work

The mouse should be Plug and Play. Did you install the drivers before plugging the mouse's receiver in? The PC has to have the drivers first in order to take advantage of the Plug and Play capability. If you plugged the mouse's receiver in before installing the drivers, unplug the mouse receiver, uninstall the driver, reboot your PC, reinstall the driver, then plug the receiver in and you should be fine.

Otherwise, press the Connect button on the receiver first, and then the Connect button on the mouse, and that should establish the connection. You don't need to disable your touch pad in order to use the mouse.

When I plug my USB mouse it dosnt work. what should I have to do?

Make sure whether USB ports are working fine or not. Or go to BIOS and check usb devices options enabled. If its enabled , restart your PC. Right click on My computer and go to manage and check device manager. If you see any yellow mark near usb devices or usb root hub you need to install chipset driver for your system mother board. If you are seeing any red mark near usb devices or USB root hub, right click on that and enable the device. If there is no mark and still your mouse doesn't work, issue with either USB ports on mother board or usb mouse.

My mouse has completely stopped working. It worked fine yesterday and as of four hours ago it stopped working. Help me please. p.s. i just got the laptop in the mail yesterday

Can you borrow a mouse from someone to determine if your fault is the mouse or the laptop? Also I assume it is a usb mouse. disconnect plugs of other usb devices out and see if that helps.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply and remember, even if you don't vote for me a please and thank you goes a long way.

My Compaq nx5000 notebook doesn't recognize an add on keyboard

Try other usb devices to make sure that your usb ports are working. If you try other usb devices and they work then you know the usb ports are working properly.

Now hook up the keyboard again to the usb port, see if the laptop recognizes it at all. if its recognizing it but not installing the drivers for it, then go ahead and put the disc in and run the setup off of the disk to install the drivers, then at that point it should work.

If that doesn't work, go to there website and download the latest software and install that.

If you hook up the usb device and the laptop isn't seeing it at all then that means the usb device is bad and your best bet at that point is to bring it back to the store and get another one.

Also make sure if the motherboard and mouse require batteries that you have good ones in there before trying to hook up the usb device to the laptop.

If it still doesn't work then you know its bad and you need to get another keyboard and mouse and usb device or go with another brand and model of keyboard and mouse.

If that doesn't work,

Can't use a wired usb mouse

Hi, well there is a couple things you can do, first check for the usb devices in device manager, which is at control panel, system, hardware tab, device manager button and usb devices will be at the bottom, if there are any exclamation points or x's then there would be a driver problem. Chances are there is not a problem with this section, next double check your bios if you already have too, make sure in peripheral devices that your usb is enabled. Finally do some of your standard tests with rebooting the computer with the usb mouse hooked up and reboot the system with it disconnected to see what difference you get, then test possibly with another usb device, either printer or external hdd or another mouse. When you find out if its the mouse or if its the hardware port or if its the drivers, for mouse just replace, for hardware port don't use it anymore or replace motherboard, for drivers attempt either a windows repair or possibly a chkdsk since the usb drivers get installed from within windows.

Installed new IRock sp7000 USB 800dpi mouse and it would not work.Updated driver. Pointer worked for a minute and no more, the scroll and the page up and down work OK but no pointer. Any Ideas. Vista OS

Hook up a second mouse.Uninstall the device completely after disconnecting. Reboot twice.
With the second mouse still installed, run the software to install the IRock, only using the new driver if possible. Leave the other mouse hooked up and reboot. It should work from there.
