My mouse works for about 20 minutes then it stops working. I have to reboot my computer to get it to come back on again. I've changed the mouse to another port and it still does the same thing.

First Check if there are anything clogging the ports, ie: Dust, dirt, boogers..

Do you have a DOS based program with mouse functionality? Like Partition Magic...

That way you can rule out drivers or conflicts in windows being the problem.

Update the drivers for the mouse...had this problem my self before...

Onn Wireless Mouse has stopped working. What do I do?


Mine would work fine until I turned on my wireless headphones...then the mouse would move a little stop.....move a little....then stop.

I made sure my headphones were on.

I turned off the mouse, moved the mouse reciver to a USB port on the front of my computer (the mouse reciver and the headphone receivers were next to each other on the back of the computer). I turned the mouse back on.

The computer imediately gave me the "installing USB driver" notification.

When it was complete....both played nicely together...no more problems.

Logitech M510 suddenly stopped working


What does the device manager say about the hardware?
It could be loss of the usb device controller. Windows XP is old and that is an indication that the hardware is old too.

My labtop mouse just stopped working. I rebooted


Unplug it, count to 10, plug it back in, count to 10 and it should work.
If not, try it in another computer.
If it doesn't work on either computer it is defective.

Mouse pad not working


A mouse pad is a thing you put your mouse on....

now what you are talking about is your touchpad.

Check these first:

  • some laptops have a switch that turns off the touch pad (usually a button right on the topside of the touchpad)
  • did you reboot completely? full shutdown, then power on?
  • goto the device manager (with a usb mouse of course) and find the touchpad... delete the device... then reboot again it should try and find the touchpad and ask for the driver, point it to the directory that you have the driver located.
good luck!

One problem, followed by another, followed by another


it seams that the motherboard has some power problems. Check on the motherboard for burned or blackened components, or for capacitors that are looking like they are going to blow (inflated on the top), u can do the same to the power supply.
If so change it !
Also maybe the power of the house has problems that the computers power supply cant handle (that can ruin the motherboard or other components )
U can also try to isolate the motherboard from the case (there might be a short between the motherboard and the power supply through the case metal ... )
