My mouse pointer is completely stuck in the middle of the screen!:sad:

I thought it was the mouse so got a new PS2 mouse. Plugged it in and the mouse was still stuck. This made me think that maybe the PS2 socket was faulty so i bought a USB mouse. I plugged this in and still the pointer is stuck.

The computer works fine otherwise. The keyboard works and i can navigate around using the keys to the best of my ability. The device manager doesn't report any faults with the mouse or drivers.

Has anyone had this problem? Or got any suggestions on what could be the problem? Its a new one to me! :rolleyes:

That's odd.

Have ya tried looking at mouse drivers? Or perhaps somehow you disableled both mouses (mice)?

Try some things. Boot to safe mode and see if the mouse acts ok. If it does something else is interfering with your mouse (software or hardware)

There's no errors in the device manager. I suppose i could unintsall mouse drivers and see if the system redetects them:-| . I'll let you know the results. Not sure of the root cause everything seems ok. I've scanned for spyware and viruses but found nothing.
