I will try to be as concise as possible. I have an IBM T30 laptop running XPPro-SP2. I am up2date with WINUpdates. Last week this condition began: My mouse no longer "moves" the cursor. I have tried 3 different "style" mice -- my normal Kensington laser mini wireless USB, a PS/2 MS mouse and a logitec 9-pin serial mouse all to no avail. However, when I am located near my desktop PC and, with my network running, I use a program from Sourceforge called Syngery. That allows me to use my "desktop" mouse on my laptop PC and, Behold!, it works. That is I can click and navigate the cursor on my laptop. Just a side note, the "Trackpoint" mouse control on the laptop has never worked EXCEPT for a few seconds while at the end of a "boot up". I suspect that maybe an IRQ clash is there but I don't know how to find it. Or the driver may be corrupted (I have reloaded more than once). I have run in safemode with no change.
I hope someone out there can help. BTW,I have NO system restore points to return to. I have also looked for, via Spybot and Adaware and aVast AV any problems in that vain. Any ideas?

With Synergy, the mouse is still physically attached to your desktop, right?
Open Device Manager and expand all of the +'s. Look for yellow exclamation points. These will indicate the problem devices and drivers
