Don't know if this belongs here, but anyway.........I just swapped out an old computer for a new one. I moved the old one to another room and hooked everything up, but the mouse cursor is stuck in the center of the screen. I have no idea what I did to cause that. I tried shutting down then rebooting, and swapping mice, but no joy. Anyone got an idea how to fix this?

Hello

Does your keyboard work?

If it does {

boot your computer press F8 key > SafeMode > See if it works there > Report your result back here. (Please)
}
else {
with computer on > insert a flashdrive into usb port (one that has light) see if the light comes up > if it does not something is up with your usb ports (a loose connection maybe on M.Bo)

}

Thanks Juicy,
The thought of booting into safe mode occurred to me too. I'll give it a try and let you know what happens.

I might add that when I was setting the computer up in the other room, I had plugged in the mouse that came with the new system....perhaps that caused a software conflict? Somehow the 'New hardware found' box opened up, but the screen freezes, and I have to shut down. I also get a dialogue balloon that says 'USB human interface device' I've never seen that one before.

Ok.......I went into safe mode, but no luck. Rebooted, and switched USB ports. Success! Mouse now works as before.

Thanks for the suggestion. :thumbsup:
