USB mouse not working

  talia 17:26 10 Jul 2006

My friend has a new Dell laptop and wants to use a USB muse with it. The mouse works okay on hise desktop PC but not on the laptop. The usb port on the laptop is okay as other peripheries work form it.

is there a setting he needs to change? He is running XP Home.

Try checking that the mouse is recognised in Device Manager.

If so, Uninstall it by right clicking on the highlighted mouse line and choosing Uninstall and then rebooting.

Windows will/should Find New Hardware and reinstall the Microsoft driver.
