XP and frozen mouse

  Quilljar 19:53 22 Aug 2005

Computer boots up OK to desktop in XP, but the mouse pointer will not move. I have tried a different mouse but still the same. Has anyone any suggestions as to what I do next?

Do you get any error messages?

Have you scanned for viruses, spyware, etc?

Have you tried using the "MouseKeys"?

No error message. I do not think it is a virus.

Look in Device Manager. Is the mouse shown as OK? Try reloading the mouse software.

Sound like a IRQ conflict. check by going to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Information

PS a USB mouse should work
