I am using Windows XP Pro SP3
my mouse is an optical wired one, connected to the PC through a rear USB port.
The PC was running with no major problems.
This morning I found that the mouse indicating arrow was frozen.
After restart, I connected the mouse to another USB port with no success. I used another mouse, the same.
The mouse light (red light under the mouse) is lighting.
I try to use a memory stick (Disc-on-key), the light on the stick is on, but the PC cannot
detect it (even through the Device manager).
Above attempts were performed using the forward and the rear usb ports.
The Bios is showing the USB ports as Enabled.
I connected an old mouse (with the ball) using the standard round connector. I could finally use the mouse
Please asking for your kind assistance. What have suddenly disconnected all the USB ports "Data" connection
(I am using the word 'Data" connection since the light on all the devices is on i.e. current is passing through)
