Windows 7: Microsoft Wired Optical Mouse 200 suddenly not working

Mouse suddenly not working

Hi there,

So on my computer yesterday, my Microsoft Wired Optical Mouse 200 was working. Now, it's not.

I didn't install anything onto my PC, nothing. Just nothing. The only thing that happened was that I'm installing Windows 8.1 onto my desktop (the error is on my laptop, Win. 7) as I type this, but I absolutely don't think that would affect anything.

The scroll wheel and the two buttons (click and right click) still work, but moving the mouse does nothing. I tried rolling up a small thing of tape really tightly and lightly touching the inside laser with it, and the cursor moves, but only lasts for less than 10 seconds.

If it helps, it is a Microsoft Optical Mouse 200 (model 1405), and has always worked.

Try another mouse and see if the problem goes away.
