Mouse troubles

I have a IBM optical USB mouse with adapter for using the mouse port. I
switched to USB to see how it works, but every so often the pointer freezes
for a bit, sometimes it stays frozen unless I disconnect and reconnect the
mouse cable. I tried reconnecting to the mouse port but that doesn't work,
the pointer only moves now when using the USB post. I also obtained an
updated driver, no change to the problem. Is there a way to get the mouse
port working again?

Eric,

When you connected the mouse to the PS/2 port (mouse port), did you do this
while the computer was shut down? If not, try that approach. Unlike the USB
port, the mouse port is not hot swappable.

I have a Compaq laptop with Vista. For some reason the mouse makes
selections without me clicking. Often it is not what I want; it is something
I simply passed over.
I can not figure out how to correct the problem.

3rd party is a mouse which uses its own drivers.... sounds like yours
is. Check System Maker's Site for updated drivers ...... and possibly
BIOS.

Without success I tried to find out how to find this driver with Google. I'm
not very savy with computers and have no idea how to find or install this
driver.

What brand computer and model do you have? I said go to
the System Maker's site,,, NOT use google to look for a
driver.

If its a Toshiba go to their site, a Sony go to their site and so
on.

Hi Spirit,

Sorry to trouble you with the same issue but it really is annoying. I've
done all that you said from Toshiba's website and my notebook confirms I have
the latest driver installed. I still get the problem of hovvering the mouse
over certain fields to discover that I've somehow selected them.

Apart from being irritating, I think it's pretty dangerous for the novice
home user.

Can you offer any other assistance please?
