Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Q: Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

I had that problem when I installed "software" for my mouse. I just use the default drivers that Windows installs upon connecting.

Have you recently installed any new software for your mouse or somehow relates to your mouse?

Hey there. Recently I reinstalled the Sims 2 and many expansion packs on my computer. I have HP Pavilion Entertainment PC with Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit operating system. I connected the mouse I had bought and realized it wasn't working. The middle mouse button works fine outside of the sims 2 games. But when I get to the neighborhood and even the houses, I can't use it at all. It's like it just shuts off. The rest of the mouse works perfectly fine. I've read some things about Logitech mouses doing this but mine is an HP Compfort mouse so I can't do what they say to fix it. I've tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions? If I've left anything out I'll answer your questions.

Hi, i returned a Dell Studio 16 for another Dell Studio 16 with some lighter configurations. One thing I didn't expect to go missing was the ability to "middle click" and open firefox links in new tabs by pressing both mouse buttons simultaneously.

When i went to Dell's website to update the driver, i was informed via a pop-up that the driver i already have was newer than the one i was trying to update with. so i didnt "update" the driver. The device says "Synaptics TouchPad V7.2 on PS/2 Port" and the Driver Version is I am running Win7 64bit. Thanks.

Hi, sorry, not very good at this sort of thing, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

1) Thursday night - mouse was working. Sunday evening, mouse is not working.
2) In the device manager it tells me I have two HID-compliant mouse drivers, location: "On USB Input Device" - I only have one USB input for my mouse. I tried disabling one of the drivers to see if it was a conflict problem. No luck.

Any ideas? The mouse is a "Wireless Optical Mouse M/N:SM-502C"

Never seen it but try this. Do your best to get to Device Manager (probably under System Properties) and check your mouse under there. If it has the exclamation point, delete it and reboot. Reinstall the drivers when prompted.

I bought a new computer and am setting up the old one to give away. I formatted the hard drive on the old one and after win 98 was installed the mouse didn't work. This old computer doesn't have a ps2 port so it uses a ps2 to serial adapter. I thought the adapter was bad as the mouse worked when plugged into the ps2 port of another computer. A new adapter didn't work. I unplugged and replugged the cable connector on the motherboard with no success. I installed a pci serial card that was recognized in win 98 device manager with com ports 1 and 2. This was after disabling the onboard serial ports in the bios. The mouse still doesn't work. I've run out of ideas other than taking it to the computer repair shop. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Larry.

Is the adapter you are using the one that came with the mouse? The pinouts are not all the same on the adapters. I know my IBM mouse must use its own adapter.

A:Mouse stopped working...

To get to start use the Windows key that is between the Control key and the ALT key on the left hand side of your keyboard. It should have a little window floating on it. Just hit it once and your Start menu should pop up, then use arrow keys and enter to navigate it.

On a Windows 98 system, the mouse froze and stoped working after the installation of a second cd-rom drive, LCD monitor and ethernet card. On rebooting, the error message: no PS/2 mouse detected displays. When the LCD monior was uninstalled and replaced with the old, original monitor, the mouse worked for about 10 hours then stopped again.

A:mouse stopped working

Hi whiskeryron and welcome to W7 Forums

Could be a hardware failure of the mouse, where it still works (as in being able to guide the cursor on the screen) but not as regards recognising the operation of one or more of its buttons or wheel.

Probably easier to replace than try to repair.

What type of mouse is this?
I would go into Device Manager...uninstall the drivers for each mouse listed...reboot.

Ok, so my computer was making some weird noises and I moved around the cables so it stopped the knocking noise. When I did it, I accidentally pulled the power cable out of the CD drive and it turned off my computer. So after I plugged that back in, I turned on my computer again and got into Windows and my keyboard still works. The lights in my mouse are lit up but it's not working when I try and move it.

Is your mouse/keyboard USB or PS/2?

If it's USB, try using the PS/2 slot, most keyboard and mice come with an included adapter (USB > PS/2). You may have to re-install

I have two computers set up, and recently the mouse stopped working on one of them.

I checked the connection and rebooted. The mouse didn't work after the second reboot, but it did after the third. I havn't restarted it again.

Now the mouse stopped working on my second PC. I have rebooted and so far it is working.

The mouse on the first PC is an old one with the circular plug. But the second computer has a usb optical mouse.

I find it too much of a coincidence that the mouse should stop on both computers within a day of each other.

I have checked my pc with an up to date virus scanner, and it was clean.

Has anybody heard of a virus that can do this? Or anything else that could cause this?


ps. Hopefully my mouse will be working, so I can check replys.

A:Mouse stopped working

I could be wrong, but it sounds like you have blown the PS/2 port on your machine. This is one problem with PS/2 and should never be plugged or unplugged when the machine is running. Unless anyone knows different the only thing is to get a serial mouse with the functions of the PS/2 mouse. (Unless drivers are available for a serial port version of the PS/2 mouse you have).

Hi all,

I had my mouse connected to the usb-port of my monitor.
I accidently pulled the cable connecting my pc to the screen (the one supplying power to the usb ports)
Now my mouse stopped working. changing to another usb port doesnt help. Even changing to my laptop doesnt work.

Can my mouse be damaged just from removing that cable?

A:mouse stopped working

It probably shorted something out and damages the ports. If you are worried about the cable not being long enough to plug into the tower, consider either a wireless mouse or a USB extension cable

A:My mouse has stopped working! UGH

Does your keyboard work? Do you have access to a PS/2 mouse? Be sure you are plugging in the USB cable to the Back USB port as this port is stronger. Log in with the keyboard and see if it installs the Mouse Driver once Windows loads
You can also boot into Safe Mode and see if the mouse works. If not using your TAB, Alt, Arrow and Enter keys, go to Windows key + R in the Run box type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager Do you have a yellow flag next to the Mouse? If so, using your arrow and enter keys, highlight the mouse and press the Delete key to delete the mouse and restart the computer. It should load a new driver for the mouse.

If you can copy the file, try saving the file inanother location and opening it there.'
I have searched for this file and cannot locate you think uninstalling Microsoft Office 2007 will rectify the problem ? I have deleted all the word docs I have and the error message still comes up. Once I have closed the box down, Word restarts and comes up with a new blank doc.

I had the same problem.
I managed to resolve it after doing some google search and forum reading.
The problem was related to the HP printer that I bought and installed recently. The problem was resolved after installing the latest drivers from the HP website. Don't use the drivers provided in the CD. For more detailed information and if this solution does not work, see my blog.

Hi all, this is my first time posting on this board and itís probably a total newbie question but here goes; I wanted to add a second hard drive to my pc but there wasnít an available SATA connection on my motherboard so I purchased a pci-e card that allowed me to add another pair of sata connections, I installed the card powered on and added the drivers and then everything was fine. Now I powered my computer back on and the usb mouse and keyboard doesnít work at all, not sure what is happening, does anybody have any ideas why this would happen? The only other thing plugged into a usb that is working is a wifi stick.

A:USB keyboard & mouse stopped working

What are the specs of your current system? Do you have a very high video card but low Power supply wattage?

I agree that the keyboard and mouse only use a very low watt consumption on your PSU. But if you have maxed out your PSU due to the high specs you are using, then definitely the external USB devices will not work as they are just a second priority for the power consumption.

If you have a low spec system then obviously, this is a compatibility issue with your mouse and keyboard. Let me know your thoughts.

Just now my mouse and keyboard randomly stopped working on my desktop. It was running perfectly fine then all I heard was the USB disconnect sound and all function in both the keyboard and mouse stopped. When I start my computer the lights on my mouse and keyboard briefly come on then turn off when I'm on the welcome screen.

Weird thing is that they both work on my brothers computer but when I try my brothers keyboard and mouse they don't work on my computer.

I'm also running windows 10 if that matters.

I restarted my computer and now all of my USB ports don't work on the desktop, but they still work in BIOS, and I can access the F2 and F8 menus. I tried restoring an old version of windows but it gives me an error. And also, now the Wi-Fi and the sound displays with a red cross near their icon.

-I tried disabling my XHCI, it didn't do anything.

-I even tried ps/2 port, it didn't work either.

-I tried restoring an older version of my computer it didn't work and gave me an x800 error every time on every backup I had. (I had around 4)
My keyboard and mouse are in working conditions, USB still give out power. Please help, I've been having this problem for five days now, I need my computer for work. Please.

What anti-virus program are you using? Have you run a full scan?
Also download and scan with Malwarebytes Anti Malware (free version), see if anything is found.

Test memory and hard drive:

Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

You can do this on any computer that has a working CD Burner.

You can also use a Flash drive instead of a CD.

Download - Auto-installer for USB Key (Win 9x/2k/xp/7) *NEW!*.
Unzip and run Memtest86+ USB Installer.exe.
It will format the flash drive if you tell it to. I used a small, 16MB flash drive and it had 8.5GB left when done.

Boot the CD or Flash drive and run Memtest86+ for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that. An overnight run is even better.

Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

My mouse stopped working yesterday and I haven't been able to get it going again. Some of the online advice I'm getting suggests fixes involving reinstalling USB controllers from the Device Manager. The trouble is I cannot do the boot log-in without the mouse. I'm assuming the keyboard is working. How do I accomplish log-in using only the keyboard?

Thank you. John Hixson

I have an Inspiron 6000, and the USB ports have stopped detecting my USB mouse. The USB ports will detect my USB key or external harddrive... so I'm guessing the automatic drivers that were installed for the mouse have curropted or something.

I have a Dynex small laptop mouse, and I honestly have went through 5 of these because of the same problem. At first I thought it was the crummy mouse dying on me. But I never took the tiem to pay attnetino and notice the light on the optical is still on when plugged in.

This time though, I recently got some "USB port failure" messages that minimzed into the system tray but I could never open it up again or recreate the message.

Is there a way to check/update the drivers that were installed for this mouse by Win XP?

Hi all, only me again.

My mouse has stopped working after i did some window's updates!, it's only a ?4 mouse from asda in the UK, but was working fine before i did them. I went into my task manager and 2 of the USB's have warning's on them? Also this is the latest update that's killed my mouse.

Thankyou in advance

A:Mouse stopped working after updates!

Whenever you do an update, the system automatically creates a restore point so you can "roll-back" from the updates.

You can do a system restore by following this guide. System Restore

Once your system is working properly again, go through and install each update one at a time to see which one gives you problems.

Hopefully, this helps

Hello! I have a Wacom Cintiq Companion that I've been using with the Wacom BT keyboard and a MS Arc Touch Surface edition (BT), for about 6-7 months. I've run into a problem after turning the machine on yesterday where it wouldn't let me connect both of them at the same time; if I connected one, the other would give me an error to connect.

Both still work, though I've now run into a problem where the computer refuses to even see the mouse when I'm trying to pair it; I'm worried that it's still in the system somewhere and it's making it bug out. (Even though it's not listed in the Device Manager!) The last time I had a problem like this with the tablet I ended up having to reinstall windows 8, which I'm not looking forward to doing again Any ideas?

Out of nowhere this morning, the keyboard and mouse stopped working. I noticed the keyboard first when nothing happened when I typed. I unplugged it and plugged it back in. Then I noticed the mouse not moving and the keyboard didn't come back either. So I dug out a USB keyboard, plugged that in, and used that to close all the open programs and restart the computer. I didn't want to hold down the power button and I wanted to know that it wasn't the computer that was frozen, just the mouse and keyboard. It restarted just fine, recognized the mouse and keyboard and now everything is back to normal, but I'm wondering why it happened in the first place and if it's likely to happen again, how can I prevent it? Thank you.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.  I assume that you mean your touch pad is not working since a USB mouse does work?   If so, try doing a reset to see if it will fix any configuration issues.  To do, just do this.....
1. Shut down Windows and unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
If that didn't resolve the issue then I would try re-installing the touch pad drivers.  I am not sure which version of Windows you have installed, but here are the links to the touch pad driver

Hi everybody,
I like many others am experiencing problems with my rocketfish bluetooth mouse. Up until now it had worked perfectly fine for me on both my desktop and my current laptop computer. Recently the batteries died and since that point the mouse has not worked.

I have tried reinstalling the drivers, letting windows install them automatically and various other things. All of which say they work correctly...except my mouse continues to flash green and not connect.

If i try to add a device it will pick up the mouse instantly, install the software and say the device is now ready to use. However within 30 seconds the bluetooth mouse icon disappears and I'm back to square one.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

However the mouse acts normally when Im doing things in my webbrowser (Firefox)

I have checked the mouse updates, tried reinstalling the mouse and ran viruscheck (Norton) and spybot s&d. Both found nothing that would help my situation.

I'm on Windows XP Service Pack 2 I believe.

My computer was running fine last night. I get up to grab a drink, come back to find my keyboard and mouse are both no longer working. I started freaking out thinking there was something wrong with my computer, but had no idea what to do. After a few hours I decided to test my keyboard and mouse on another computer to make sure which was not working properly - my computer or the keyboard and mouse - and they weren't working on the other computer either.

I'm just posting here to make sure my assumptions are or are not correct: that it's not my computer, but by some extremely rare chance of coicidince, my keyboard and mouse just stopped working at the same time. Any input is much appreciated.

Any thoughts. My Dell Travel Mouse has been working fine until last weekend when it stopped responding. First, I thought it was the batteries, but it simply would not work on my Dell XPS M1300 laptop running Windows 8 Release Preview. I tried it on another laptop (running Windows 7) and it works fine. I have tried the usual, of uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing seems to work, although it still shows as being connected.

The driver is unchanged from when I was on Windows 7, namely v6.2.8400.0 dated 21/6/2006. I phoned Dell and they connected remotely to my laptop but after a cursory look, they decided they could not help as they are not trained on Windows 8, but were willing to transfer me to software assistance for paid Support.

I have a wireless mouse that occasionally stops working. A friend called me with a very similar problem and we went through all the steps that fix mine but no luck. Then I found out that when my friend removes the transceiver it is very hot. I've never experienced this. Has anyone else seen, or felt, this or know the cause? Both are HP laptops running Windows 7, less than a year old, different models

A:Solved: USB Wireless Mouse stopped working

Welcome to TSG
Yes, when I have all 4 USB ports something plugged in, the receiver and all other ports get very hot. Just the receiver alone only gets warm.
Did you replace the battery in the mouse yet?

After my 2.5-year-old hard drive died about a week ago, I bought a new one and installed it two days ago. Everything was going perfectly until today, when my touchpad mouse suddenly stopped responding to anything. This has happened before, and usually it's fixed by restarting the computer, so I shut down the laptop and started it back up again. However, instead of booting up, I got a black screen with a series of random characters (about 10 of them), and Vista never started, no matter how long I left it. I can't believe that this new hard drive is already broken after two days. What could cause this issue? (For reference, the new drive is a Seagate one...never used one before, don't know how reliable they are.)

A:Mouse stopped working, now laptop won't start

Have you checked to make sure that the drive is securely attached to the connector in the laptop?

Can you post the 10-characters that are showing?

Help, Please! My laptop was working fine yesterday, but today when I started it up my mouse, speakers, and webcam stopped working.  When I hover over the speaker icon in the tray it says, "no audio output device is installed." When I click on Computer-Hardware there are several yellow triangles for these componenets and more (a warning). I have run Norton and there are no issues. Anyone have an idea what could be wrong?

Try in Safe Mode and see if the problem persists

How to Start in Safemode

1. Restart your computer.
2. Before the windows logo you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
5. Do whatever tasks you require and when you are done reboot to boot back into normal mode..

A friend's computer could not access the internet; Norton software noted updates were required.
Clicking to update didn't work, so I turned off the computer, unplugged the power cord, plugged the power cord back in, and restarted the computer.
When the computer came back on, the "ball" mouse plugged into the mouse port didn't respond. I then switched to an optical mouse and plugged it into a USB port. This mouse worked and I was able to connect to the internet.
Why didn't the original mouse work after I turned the computer off and back on?
Any ideas on why I was able to access the internet after turning the computer off and back on? (When I turned it back on I didn't get a message from Norton saying updates were needed).
Thank you.

I have a an HP bluetooth mouse x4000b. I am able to easily have the laptop recognize the device, and it will work for a period of hours or days.  Then the laptop will cease to recognize the mouse, even though it is still listed in the control panel under "devices". I am running Windows 7 Pro. I see on the Microsoft community there was a fix for this, but that page was quite old and the link no longer available.  Anyone have an idea? Thank you.

Hi I have a Windows Lenovo notebook and a Toshiba Satellite Windows laptop and a mouse lol Well the mouse has been working fine for months but suddenly the mouse has stopped working in my Toshiba laptop As I didn't know how to fix it and as Toshiba laptop was full of crap I've just formatted its HDD and made a clean install of Windows and updated everything laptop just in suddenly 1 Mouse working stopped After that I've plugged the mouse in and the same error it connects and disconnects all the time Sometimes if I'm in Mouse suddenly stopped working in just 1 laptop the Device Manager refreshing the devices mysteriously it start to work but just for a few minutes Sometimes and just sometimes the Device Manager shows that there's an unknown device connected to a USB port that is not working The error code is That mouse works perfectly Mouse suddenly stopped working in just 1 laptop in my other notebook the lenovo I've connected a different mouse to the Toshiba and it works perfectly in any port So that makes me say this -The mouse is not broken cause it works in my other laptop -Toshiba's USB ports work nice cause any other device I connect works seamlessly -After a clean install it can't be a software problem So what the hell is going on THANKS

A:Mouse suddenly stopped working in just 1 laptop

Sound like a driver problem.

Did you do the clean Windows install from the Lenovo recovery partition and install all the system specific drivers? If not, visit the Lenovo Support site. Unlike some laptops, my Lenovo Yoga 13 didn't come with an automatic driver update program. You have to download their drivers and such.

They have changed their support site several times so now it's very easy to get the right drivers.

I have a just over one year old (~14 months) Dell Inspiron 17 laptop with Win 8.1 (no touch) and of course it's out of warranty. The mouse simply stopped working, no cursor. I was able to use the touchpad but then that quit too in quick order.
I spent hours searching here and the interweb looking for possible fixes, so far no luck.
The worst of the issue is now I can't get past the splash screen to the login screen to access the repair/restore functions in Windows.
How do I access these when I can't even login to the computer?

A:Mouse stopped working, then touchpad, then keyboard

I called Dell and they want almost $300 to send it back so they can 'look at it'!
Any thoughts or suggestions to solve this issue?

Model is CE M525.

The batteries are brand new. It's been working great for 2 years. I brought the mouse and receiver to my work place, plugged it it, it downloaded the software immediately and worked all day. I brought my laptop to a friend's house, and the mouse worked great. All of my USP ports work great with other devices; i.e., external HD, flash drive, printer, etc.

The only change I have made was I bought a new NetGear router.

I looked at Printers and Devices and it is showing up and says "this device is working properly. But the cursor will not move.

Any ideas? Thanks!

If possible (maybe using a different mouse) try pairing the mouse and receiver using the Unified software.

Another issue with the external mouse and keyboard.   I am using 8 and my mouse/keyboard have been working up until Friday when there was an update and then both units no longer worked.  The USB key storage works but the other items not. 
I tried them in another computer and it works perfectly.  I am not as versed in Bios etc but have attempted to correct with driver udpates (all good), and add new hardware etc...nothing is working and I too need some help with getting this set up. 
MS please respond re this and options...I have been working on this for some time and need an answer and some tech help.

I have a microsoft wireless mobile mouse 6000

Been working fine all year. Most recently I had it in my netbook. I got a pop up that said the UDB device was not recognized. I tried to reinstall the microsoft intellipoint mouse software again but that didn't fix it.

I then tried it in my other laptop which it has working in the past, and when i plugged in the receiver it the computer said it was an unrecognizable device.

So now I cant use the mouse.

Any other things I should look at. Is there some kind of warranty from microsoft?
