HID complinat mouse

Hi,After installing a second harddrive,and restarting the PC,the 'Found New Hardware'box appeared.I thought it was requesting the drivers for the harddrive.

It was requesting the drivers for for my mouse?..(I am running WIX XP,the Microsoft mouse was plug and play,and has been working fine for months).

The new hardware box would appear everytime I switched the PC on.

To stop this from happening I clicked on the option to 'search for software/drivers'.Software was installed,from where on the PC who knows.Problem now solved.

Why would this happen,what is a 'HID complinat mouse'.
Thanks for taking the time to read my thread.Take care,Mike
