Recently installed Windows XP and my mouse(ps2 and usb), is not recognized. I tested both mice on my other PC and they work fine. I checked CMOS and USB is turned on but this does not explain anything. No problems in device manager under USB drivers, but there are no mouse drivers installed at all either.

I am not exactly sure what you mean by "can i update computer using usb w/driver for newer mouse", but if you want to know if you can update the USB component of Windows 98 I regret to say to you that it's not possible. USB support on Windows 98 always been tricky and Microsoft never officially supported it before Windows 98 SE. I don't know what version you have, but either way USB support under Windows 98 never been great. You also need to keep in mind that Windows 98 is quite an old system and no recent hardware like mouse, keyboard, printers is supported on it anymore. My advise would be to upgrade your current Windows installation to Windows XP or Windows 2000. A friend can probably lend you a copy and I'm 100% positive that it will solve your problem with newer mices. You will need to make sure your computer can handle Windows XP or 2000, but they can run under pretty old hardware so it should not be a problem. Cheers!
It happens so because this is not an ordinary mouse whose drivers have been provided by the operating system. You must install this mouse with its specific drivers then only would it be recognized by Windows. You must have got a CD with it. Use that to install this mouse.
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.
go to device amanger then uninstall all usb drivers from computer then restart the computrer then it autoinstall all usb drivers. tehn connect your usb mouse cable to computer try all usb port then if problem arise then your mouse usb chip has issue.
Thanks for using fixya. Please rate solution if it helps.
Windows has inbuilt driver for all the mouse. YOu dont need to install the driver separately for your PS2 or USB mouse. The reason why yours is not moving can be 1) Mouse cap/IC gone bad & needed to be changed a new mouse 2) OS faulty (very rare 1 out of 100)
go to start>>control panel>>add and remove porgrams.
uninstall all of the Logitech software related to the optical mouse.
restart the computer, plug in the mouse usb, the windows OS should automatically detected the mouse.
Windows OS has logitech mouse driver buldin. you don't need additiona; software.
It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.
sometimes adapters do not work. this might work start computer without mouse. you may have to work with keyboard tab key as you press tab key you should see the icons highlighted install drivers plug in mouse to usb if lucky O/S will recognize mouse and setup
