Gateway g4010 Mouse drivers and USB problems

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.

    Thanks for the response. I did that after getting the updated drivers from Gateway.com and it's still a problem. Right now I'm in th eprocess of installing Vista to see if that will trigger something. I'll let you know in a couple of hours. Thanks again.

Try reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers again. sometimes that solves a hidden issue.

Cannot detect my usb mouse in Windows XP


Did you UN-installed the USB mouse driver in the device manager?

If not to this.

Are you using a USB mouse ?

If yes :) update the driver using the device manager

If no now using PS2 :) update driver using device manager, and select the ps2 mouse driver.

I have a HP Pavilion s1600n with Windows XP Media Edition. The keyboard and mouse have stopped responding. Both are properly plugged in


if you are sure that your mouse and keboard are in good condittion and it is all ps2 port type the problem maybe the system driver for keyboard and mouse of your operating system, please get an extra usb port type keyboard and mouse and plugged it in to your pc and power it on the usb type keyboard and mouse may refresh the system driver and may read again your ps2 type keyboard and mouse.

Is this computer supporting USb functionality in installation mode? Have you tried using a PS2 Mouse and Keyboard to try and solve the issue? Some computers do not have the ability to run USB devices pre-windows so try to use a PS2 device and see if it works.

After rebooting my cpu my mouse stopped working. My cpu does not recognize my mouse? The mouse works because i tried it on a different cpu. what can be causing this?


Did you try to reboot?
Do you have an optical mouse? (if yes: is the red light on?
(Then the mouse is recognized and you must configure your mouse options)
Did you try to connect your USB mouse to another connector?
Or if PS2 connector: Turn of the pc and connect the mouse and power on.
Did you install a new driver? (then uninstall this driver)
Try looking for the most recent mouse driver on the manufacturer site.

Frozen computer and mouse problems


I am assuming you use Windows XP.

Try deleting the mouse's drivers in your computer and let it re-detect them.

Right-Clickie MyComputer and drop down to the last option of Properties.
The 2nd Tab should be HardWare. On that page, click Device Manager. Scroll down the list to find the Mouse Driver, or MICE.
Expand the list. Highlight the Mouse and right-clickie it. Select UNINSTALL.

Reboot your computer.

When it all comes back up - if you mouse is still being dorky - then it is either your USB driver [same as above, only delete the USB Root Hubs (all of them) and let that re-detect upon reboot] -
OR
You mouse is dead. Try a friend's mouse.

If the friend's mouse works - Buy a new one. They are $10 at WalMart.

You can do this in any order ... Try a friend's mouse, delete USB hubs & reboot, delete mouse drivers & reboot.
One of the three is your problem. :)
(There is a very small chance that your USB hub has actually suffered a HARDWARE failure.)

Trying to install windows and at the boot screen have my keyboard and mouse plugged in windows doesnt see it.. I tried the USB keyboard and nothing I just recently replaced the MOBO using anti-static wrist...


I have seen this before, and the best answer I can offer you is some Motherboards are better than others when working with usb devices while no OS is in place. I actually tried using usb / to / ps/2 adapters and it still would not recognize the usb keyboard in a couple of instances. I had to get a ps2 keyboard for the installation of windows. After windows was installed I hooked up the usb keyboard and it worked fine. (just speaking from my own personal experience here)

Sorry I do not have a more technical answer for you but I'm almost 99.9 % sure this should work, providing there is no problem with the ps2 keyboard port on the Motherboard. I have never failed to install windows unless there was another hardware based issue of some kind, but never a problem with a known good ps2 keyboard.

Just double check everything is seated properly and try to get into the bios setup, if you cannot use the usb keyboard for this, you can try the usb / ps2 adapter, but if that doesn't work either then use a regular ps2 keyboard. That should work fine, then after setup is complete, windows is installed, then your usb keyboard should work fine.

How to set up and use targus wireless computer mouse model#amw26


Under the mouse there should be a usb stick attached to the mouse which most likely should slide out from the mouse. It also appears that the plastic cover behind the two buttons (this cover has targus written on it) Should come off. After you remove the usb stick there might be a button somewhere on the bottom of the mouse that you should be able to press to get the battery cover to pop up. Then you should be able to pull up on the battery cover and remove it from the mouse. This mouse takes two AA batteries. Once the batteries are installed then plug the usb stick into any of the usb ports on the computer. The computer should recognize the drivers for this mouse (if you are using Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Mac OS X [or higher]). If the drivers are not immediately recognized then restart your computer and the computer should then recognize the mouse. If this still does not happen then let me know. Also there is software that can be downloaded from the Targus website for the tilt wheel as it has some added capabilities that can be set using this software. The link for that software is here ------> http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.asp?sku=AMW26US

I hope this helps, and enjoy that mouse, it looks pretty nice!

Reloading XP on dc 5100 hp compaq


Mice don't normally need a driver unless you wish to assign special buttons and clicks, assuming your mouse is a PS2 connection, try a USB one instead, that should work.
