My windows 7 has been having this issue.
My old mouse did not work. The cursor was stuck in then middle of the screen. Turns out, it did not work on ANY computer. Obviosuly a dead mouse.
I bought a New Mouse, here are the Facts:
Is recognized as a mouse, wirless, by MY Win 7 OS.
Driver installation is sucessful, With the new driver installing even if I uninstall the old one.
Mouse is turned on (Lights on)
The cursor does not respond to me moving the mouse, at all. But only for this mouse.
This is not an issue with the surface the mouse is working on, it is a normal wood desk
There is no connnect button, the mouse makes aconnection by itself on OTHER computers. This Wireless optical mouse works as expected when plugged into Other computers.
A Secondary mouse:
Other optical wired mice work as expected in MY computer.
All ports accept and connect to other devices (USB Drives, gamepads, trackball wired mice, etc)
This Optical Wireless mouse does not work in any USB port
All USB ports were uninstalled via the device Manager. As I was uninstalling them, Win OS would auto install the drivers again. I restarted, and all USB ports reinstalled.
Ran Combofix to check System File Integrity while in Safe Mode /w Networking. No change in issue. No Malware / Trogens found.
Previously installed updated BIOS 2 months ago with no issues since last week.
CMOS was rest by battery removeal, reinsertion
Frustrated, I reimaged by C Drive with an older backup Image of my system. This did not change the issue behavior.
I am at a loss at what to check for.
It doesn't seem to be a driver issue, as I've REimaged the whole drive to an earlier state.
It's not a hardware issue, as this mouse works perfectly fine in a MAC OSX and WIN 7 System, just not mine.
Its not A driver issue anyway, from the above two points AND other wired mice work fine.
The simple answer is to get a wired mouse, but I want to see if I can fix this first.
Any kind of direction, tips would be appreciated. I will keep coming back / reading the replies and updating this main post.
