I'm getting so frustrated with this stinkin' computer!
I have replaced several mouses, thinking each time that they were just crap. Each time I changed, the new one works fine for a time. Then they start acting up. (Yes, I've opened and cleaned the balls and rollers.) I'll try to move the pointer and while my hand moves, the pointer stays where it is until I lose my temper and play rough with it.:) My current mouse is a GE scroll mouse 97859. I've looked online for drivers for it but haven't come up with anything.
When I go to the control panel and click on mouse, it shows a logitech wireless mouse as my current mouse. While I did have this mouse used on here before, it isn't anymore. I'm wondering if this could be the problem and how do I fix it?

Go to add/remove programs in your control panel and see if there is still a program installed for the mouse. Restart when your're done and see if that solves the problem.

There's nothing there that I don't recognize or that would be something for that mouse. Thank you for the suggestion. If you (or anyone else, too) think of anything, I'll gladly check back into it in the morning.

Go back into your device manager and disable that wireless mouse.

See what happens then. Also, see if a mouse is detected in your BIOS. It should be a PS/2 mouse if that's what you're using--the wireless would have been USB, I assume...?
