Dell Windows XP is detecting mouse when USB is plugged in, but cuts out after about 5 seconds. Tried second USB mouse and separate ports, same thing happens. Tried booting in safe mode, same things are happening.
Notification on the bottom right shows USB has detected a device, then cuts out, then shows Device has installed properly."
I read one suggestion about setting to a Legacy mouse mode in BIOS. Any suggestions on how to at least use a mouse temporarily on the pc?
