Hi everyone, ive just bought a small usb fan for my sons pc, it has Windows 7 on it (Genuine) & i went to plug it in & at first it didnt work then it did, now the mouse has stopped working.? ive changed the batteries & changed the mouse with a corded one but still nothing.? the keyboard works thou..
Anyone got any idea what is wrong & how to fix it pls.?

Sounds like usb power issue - not uncommon. Sometimes my optical mouse doesn't power up on startup. Have you unplugged fan and then unplugged and plugged back in mouse with pc still running?

ame thankx! yeah ive tried that & rebooted a couple of times.?

Is the fan still working? Do other usb devices work? Check usb contollers using Device manager.

Sounds very odd that keyboard doesn't work in Safe mode. Can you get to System Restore?Sometimes you can use keyboard arrow keys to move cursor and make selections if mouse not working in Normal mode.
Do you have or can you borrow a PS/2 mouse?

A sort of similar problem! My usb mouse would stop working on my laptop, it was the usb settings shutting down the power!

ame & Blackadderthe4th Thankyou! ive got a PS/2 mouse & that dont work either.? oh dear! i think im stuck...thing is EVEN a format wont work cause if its NOT working as it boots then a new os is pointless...any ideas again pls!?
