Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My mouse is optical, and I've had it for at least 1 year by now. But all of a sudden, it doesn't work at all, like the cursor doesn't show up. I'm not sure whether the usb port has been overused, or if it is the mouse's fault, and I need a new 1. Help me please...


Answers :

It sounds to me like your computer isn't detecting it at startup if it's not showing up at all. i would try a diffrent usb port, also thier is a connector peice ff697e6.jpg in which you can connect it to your ps2 port. click the picture for the link to find this adapter.
\015\012Also, it could be your mouse itself. perhaps it had been droped er damaged in some way. you may need a new one.
