On my WXP Laptop, which I use from time to time, the TrackPad and wireless Mouse have both stopped working. Fortunately I have a very basic wired mini Mouse which still works so I am not locked out and can still use the X.
Every time I start up I get a message about a new device being detected, which I take to be the Mouse (and Trackpad?) as there is no other device. I am asked if I want to install but then when I try I get a pop-up report to the effect that the file I am going to install is older than the one already on the PC and do I want to proceed? I select 'No'.
I presume I have a problem with my my Mouse and Trackpad settings and / or with the drivers?
