I also have a (Dell) XPS GEN 4. Originally there was a Dell 993 Monitor I just recently I got a Samsung SyncMaster 24" flat panel. in the display properties it comes up as Generic Plug and Play, my problem is with the Optical mouse (Dell) it just stops working I have to unplug then plug it back in then it works for a while. sometimes for a few minutes or sometimes the whole day. I've also tried plugging into the back of my keyboard as it has 2 USB ports but when do that a window pops up saying it would be faster if i used a different port gives you a list. what would cause this to happen??? Monitor...

thanx :thumbsup:

Try leaving it plugged into the keyboard, a mouse is not a incredibly complicated device and doesn't really need a USB port directly connected to the tower.

Is this a desktop?

So the mouse was working fine before you started using your new monitor?

As has been asked, was the mouse working OK prior to hooking up your new monitor?

Beyond this, look in Device Manager | Mice and other pointing devices to see if the mouse is being recognized properly as HID compliant mouse and post back. You could also try installing the Logitech mouseware (free download from Logitech) and see if this corrects the problem - although Windows should be recogizing the mouse w/o any 3rd party software (as is the case with my Logitech MX518 mouse running XP Home).

As for your new monitor showing "plug and play", this tells me you don't have the monitor driver installed. You should have received a driver install disk with it. If not, you should be able to download the monitor model driver from the mfr. website. When the monitor driver is installed you should see verbiage in Display Properties that says "[your monitor model] on [model/name of your video card]" vs "plug and play".
