USB Mouse freezes

Guest

Recently, I have been suffering with a problem connected with my mouse. I
have a USB optical mouse that occasionally, after turning on, freezes. The
optical light is on but no movement occurs on screen. I have tried switching
the port but that rarely works. I have also tried rebooting but that doesn't
work either. Sometimes Windows detects the mouse as a new device but it
still doesn't work. Usually the problem rectifies itself but it can take
ages to do so. I am really stuck with this so I hope somebody can help.

If it helps, I'm using a Compaq Evo N800C P4. Being a laptop, it only has
two USB ports so I also have a powered hub and also an unpowered Saitek hub
that is connected to the powered hub - the mouse is connected to this one. I
have tried switching the mouse to the powered hub or even directly to the
laptop but it has no effect.

Many thanks in advance

Hi David :)

I regret that I don't have an answer for you, but, I had the same problem,
and with 3 different Logitech® Cordless Optical Mouse - Silver USB mice,
same model. They each lasted about 4-6 months and no matter what I tried I
could not resolve the problem, not even the Logitech people on the WinME
group could help, which is the only OS I had on the machine at the time.
After the 3 failure I decided to try another model, and they had the little
cordless Click's Logitech® Cordless Click!T Plus Optical Mouse on sale, so I
decided to save some money in case it didn't work either. Well....that was
over a year ago, and it's still working. And, I now have ME, W2k and XP on
my machine on separate drives, and it works just fine with them all.
Perhaps you can try that model and see if you get better results. It seems
to be less 'sophisticated', and more user friendly.

Jan,

Cheers for that - cannot understand what's going on and I didn't fancy
reinstalling all the drivers!

Cheers
