Windows 7: Can't use mouse at all

Can't use mouse at all

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, but I don't have much choice since I am navigating by keyboard.

Basically I can't use my mouse, and I am on the verge of installing Kubuntu and wiping Win 7 off. I really don't want to do that though (two programs on Windows I need).

How it started? No clue. Last program I installed was yesterday (Final Draft), and it was working fine for hours this morning. I tried using another mouse, but that didn't work. Also my keyboard stopped working too, after my mouse, but now it's working.

Win 7 7100 64-bit

Hi and welcome,


A few questions,

USB or PS2 mouse?

Is there a hub connected to USB?

Greetings.

Since you already tried another mouse, it might be a broken ps2 port.

Try an USB i would say.

Hmm, possible. Also I should mention that I was in safe mode, now I am back in regular mode. And my mouse can now move, but really slow. Not sluggishly slow, but 5 seconds after I move it slow.

Anyway I will get a usb mouse, and see how that works out.

I guess it was the mouse after all. Used linux live cd to see if my mouse would work in it (it didn't), but on a whim I tried the other mouse (and it did). Will still get a usb mouse though, since I got 4,5 ports for that, and I vaguely remember having mouse troubles with this comp before that were solved with a bit of wiggling.

Thanks for the help.

Good plan,

Probably lose contact of one of the pins in the PS2 port.

Good luck

Check if there are any bent pins on the mouse cable. I reccomend a usb mouse for windows 7.
