Hello, while re-arranging my work room I decided that my mouse would be better plugged onto one of the other USB ports on my laptop, but found that it would not work in any of the other ports, (the ports all work fine with anything else plugged in to them). I have tried switching the system off, plugging the mouse into another port and then re-starting, but, no difference, only working in one port. This is not a serious problem, but it's bugging me and I want to know why this happens!. Anyone got any ideas?.
Thanks.

Try uninstalling and re-installing the Universal Serial Bus Controller drivers.

Go to Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager.

If when you open the Device Manager all you see is the icon of a monitor click on the box with the [+] to the left of it to expand the menu.

Scroll down to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers and right-click the first USB controller, then click Uninstall to remove it.

Repeat this with all of the USB controllers.

After you restart the computer Windows will scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that were uninstalled.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Update: I did all that, and got "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device" followed by "Found driver software but encountered an error while trying to install it", and then: "The driver installation is missing a necessary entry, contact hardware vendor" followed by: "device driver software not successfully installed", and the last message:"Device driver successfully installed", but, the original situation remains, all ports are working again but the mouse will still only work in the one usb port.
