|About a week ago my mouse stopped working. Windows boots fine, but from the main screen, the mouse just sits in the middle.|
I have been using a wireless mouse with a USB to PS2 adapter. Once I discovered the problem, I tried to hot swap it a couple times (this seems like a bad idea from other forum posts). I also tried to plug it in to a USB port. This did not yield any better results. Finally, a new mouse was tried in both the PS2 and USB ports. Still no response. Power was cycled to the PC in between attempts with the exception of the first time. Both mice were verified working on another machine.
One oddity I noticed; both mice are optical mice. Usually the LED glows brighter in intensity when the mouse is moving over a surface. Both mice I tried (both in PS2 and USB ports) were bright the entire time they were plugged in.
