I downloaded the wrong drivers and now thte mouse is dead. Cursor won't move. Have tried using safe mode, "reset to an earlier time", wondows repair and reloading drivers without going into set up.

Drivers really should not effect whether or not the mouse will work, but you can boot to safe mode and uninstall the ones you just installed (though system restore should have taken care of the new driver issue).

See the 3rd post in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic419373.html

Mice don't need 3rd party drivers usually. I don't know why people keep installing them.

I don't know why people keep installing them.

For unique features and added functionality, depending on the mouse.

Yeah, I know. Just venting I guess. I used to install Setpoint to gain access to my 5th and 6th button on my mouse while playing games.

You might want to try a different mouse or a different type of connection (ie, usb / ps2)

Sounds as though you have a hardware problem effecting the usb ports. Or maybe some sort of virus that's effecting the ports.

Is the mouse connection USB or PS/2?
In the beginning there was the command line.

You didn't answer this question.

Also, what type of connection is the keyboard?
