    Hi again,

    I have a problem with my mouse which is that it has stopped working!!! When putting the mouse in the usb slots the optical light will light up for a second then as i push it in further it goes out.
    I have tried it in different usb slots with no luck, but when i do the same with my keyboard it works perfectly fine.
    I have tried a ps2 keyboard with no luck, bought a wireless mouse still doesn't work and bought a new wired mouse which hasn't worked. Unfortnatly for me i don't know all the windows shortcuts to access most of the pc with the keyboard (only enough to bring up the start menu)

    I'm running win 7 64 bit all updated.

    Thanks again

    Steph.

    So your keyboard works fine in all USB ports, and no mouse does? Am I getting it right?

    The mouse will probably have Liverpool FC written underneath it.

    Joking apart Steph there is no logical reason why attaching an optical or wireless mouse to a USB port that will see a USB k/b should have a problem.

    Once you have attached the mouse have you rebooted a couple of times?

    Are there any exclamation marks in Device Manager?

    Hi Wolfeymole,
    I wished it did have liverpool fc under it, it would be easily be sorted. lol

    I have tried rebooting it but with no luck, looked under device manager and in mouse > hardware it doesn't say anything, it is blank.

    Could it have something to do with the drivers?

    I have just plugged the new wired optical mouse into my niece's notebook and it had installed the driver for it and it is working, so that rules out a dodgy mouse.

    Thanks
    Steph
