State the make and model of your brand name system, or if it is a generic system, the make and model of the desktop mboard.
The specific brand name system model is usually on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can be determined by going to the brand name's web site.
The model of the mboard in a generic system is usually printed in obvious larger characters on the surface of the mboard, often between the card slots.

When did they first stop working?
After you installed a card in a slot on the mboard?
After you installed another USB device?

USB devices may not work correctly when they're connected to certain USB ports, e.g. ports in a hub or on the front of a desktop case. However, they should work in the same port the USB flash drive works in.
Or, if this is a desktop computer, you may have an IRQ problem you need to fix - if you do, you will need to reload the USB stack after you have fixed the problem.

External drives require a lot of power, and they won't work properly in all possible USB ports you can plug them into.
If you plug one into a hub, it could be nothing else plugged into the same hub will work properly when it's plugged in.

My computer is a built up computer with Asus p4p800s-x motherboard & 3.2 ghz cpu with 1 gb ram.
mouse stop after reboot when computer had no reboot for 3-4 days and had some windows updates-usb hard drive exchange-some registry change .I normally sleep my computer and only reboot every 4 -5 days.
Usb stack was done 3 times with no succes.
My 3.3 volt is about 2.9 volt is it too low.?
My Antec,true power trio,430 watts power supply is only 2 years old.
the 5 volt and 12 volt are very close to it.but that 3.3 volt is more away.Above 5% and close to 10%.?
Could that create the "mouse" problem?
Everithing else is working fine.
Thanks
Dan

Gething nowhere.
I search for that problem but no good solution yet!
I am close to a format.
I can not believe i will have to format only for a mouse not working!

See the "Mice and other pointing devices" category in Device Manager.
Select update driver on "HID-compliant device"
Find the "Don't search.." option and select HID-compliant mouse.

I sounds like your computer was configuring more than ONE USB mouse. While it is possible to use more than one mouse I don't believe that you can have TWO USB mice installed at once. The solution is to remove all instances of USB mice and reboot. Then connect a USB mouse.
