Were all the mice you tried of the PS/2 port variety? Did you shut down, plug in a different mouse, and restart for each other one you tried? Can you locate or buy a USB mouse and try that? I'm thinking something is wrong with the physical PS/2 port on that computer but it's impossible to say without more info.

i think i have to agree with pchartwell. it sounds like it is the ps2 port from what you've told us. When the mouse stops responding can you get to the start menu with the keyboard to know for sure that the pc isn't freezing? That is the only other thing i can imagine could be happening if it's not the port.

Open the device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamation marks or red question marks anywhere.

If not, try removing the mouse, rebooting and let windows find and install it.

I've just tried a new PS/2 port mouse and it seems to work just fine, hopefully it doesnt mess up again, ill keep you guys posted, thanks you guys!!!!!
