Mouse is not responding

  1. My microsoft mouse stopped responding few days ago (usb connection). I opened the device managed and it shows error 24 on the device. I downloaded the latest drivers and reinstalled device but mouse pointer froze in the middle of the screen. I tried plugging in to a different usb post but no results. I used a different mouse but no results either. I tried plugging in my ipod to one of the usb ports and computer is not seeing it. Device manager is not reporting any conflicts with any of the usb ports. Using only the keyboard to move around is really stressful. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Have you tried reinstalling all the USB ports ?

    Go to Device Manager. Find Universal Serial Bus controllers and expand.
    Right click and uninstall any single entry in there.
    Reboot the computer and Windows should reinstall.

    If that doesn`t do it,then check connections in case.

    Worst case,a mobo problem.

    Do you have any PS/2 ports ? Or is that silly question.

    thanks for all of the responses...I finally got the mouse to work. I had to install a new usb pci card and reloaded windows and that did the trick... Thanks again
