    I have a ps2 mouse and it has been working fine. Now the mouse only moves up and down. I didn't try to clean it because I felt it was something more that that. So, I bought a new ps2 mouse and this one only moves left and right. I powered down the system, disconnected it and connected the old one again to make sure I had a good connection..it still moved up and down. I went to device manager and removed the mouse and let windows redetect it, but still got the same movement...up and down. I know it has to be something simple...I just can't think of what it is. This has happened to me once before, a couple of years, but for the life of me, I can't remember what I did to correct this problem...HELP PLEASE!

    This might be silly, try cleaning the progs on both ends or at least from the computer seeing you put a new one and it didn't fix it. Might not be getting good connection but make sure the power supply is disconnected from the computer when doing this.

    You also have in the control panel a mouse icon, you can make sure everything is ok with the settings in there.

    Hope this works for you dallasguy.
