Mice And Other Pointing Devices

....does not appear in device manager.

Does anyone have any ideas? This is a friends PC and I have tried several things. She is running Windows XP home. It’s a PS2 mouse. We have tried unplugging it, restarting the PC but will still not find the mouse.

Another PS2 mouse has also been tried but still no luck. If we go to control pane, then mouse, devices, there is nothing in Device Information so it is not seeing that there is a mouse plugged in.

i would be inclined to think it is a dodgy ps2 connection can you borrow a usb mouse to see if that works assuming you have usb as you dont give any system details

Thanks Zaphod Beeblebrox. Yes, she does have USB. That was the next port of call. She does not have access to a USB mouse at the moment.

Problem unresolved but works OK with a USB mouse.
