Mouse drivers work but dont work

Specs: Windows 7
Hello, my computer has for a while had regular
problems with BSOD's on a regular basis. I
have put up with it and i just restart my pc
when it happens because i have no idea what
the problem is. Due to me not being able to
post my BSOD dumps, i gave up and just put
up with it. This was all and well until
yesterday. Yesterday my computer had the
courtesy of BSODing me and forcing me to go
into safemode and after this my mouse
stopped working. The light on the mouse
works, the drivers seem okey in the device
manager and it actually shows up in the device
manager. But it will not work. I have been so
pissed of with this because i can not see any
solution, i cant afford a repair man to fix my
pc. So I was hoping you guys could help me
with some possible solutions?

This is a long shot, but may work.

Turn off your computer. Unplug all your USB devices, except your keyboard and mouse if they are USB.

Turn on the computer and let it boot normally.

If everything works and you don't any BSOD's, then you may have too small of a power supply.

I just had to get rid of a LifeCam 3000 for this reason. Got a bigger P/S and all seems well.

But sometimes too many USB devices can cause IRQ conflicts and you'll have to unplug the least used of the USB devices until they are needed.

THanks for the reply. I am going to try the taking out the other
things in usb (a iphone charger) ... For the sake of loosing my
mouse that is.
The BSOD problem could have something to do with the
powersupply. I have a modular 550W powersupply and i had
three harddrives installed and a high-end graphics card.
Gonna see if only having one harddrive helps. You got any
tips on how i can check the status of harddrives. Because
lots of things are pointing towards that my harddrive iv been
using is somehow corrupt. So i was wondering are there any
good programs i can downlaod for checking that kind of thing?

Windows built in error checking doesnt pick enything up you

I would go to your hd manufacture's site. They usually have pretty reliable tools to download for free.

Best of luck.
