Windows 7: USB Mouse sometimes not detected on boot

USB Mouse sometimes not detected on boot


new build PC, and noticed that sometimes when I boot Win7 the mouse is not detected on the USB rear port. I moved to a new port when Win7 was loaded and it worked fine, detected etc. But serveral boots later it happened again. I rebooted and all was fine. Again several loads later and windows had no mouse detected. I navigated using the keyboard to the hardware and devices screen in CP and found sure enough a but ! next to the USB mouse. I did a trouble shoot and it re-installed the driver. Now so far no probs but is this a problem?

I know it might be hardware (new pc build an all) but wondered if there was a general USB legacy issue.

Mouse is an older Microsoft intelli point USB one. Had no problems with it on older XP computer for over 4years.

Yep, I think I might so that, I did neglect to mention I did have a couple of Keyboard PS2 port not detects. Starting to wonder if the motherboard is seated correctly (blame the self builder - me).

Oh well, just thought I'd check with the masses.
