    Hi yesterday the mouse took a funny turn and stopped moving completely I attached 4 different ones in turn but not one of them worked I tried unpluging and pluging them in whilst the pc was on and also closed the pc down and booted up again still none of them worked one of them was an optical mouse which lit up but wouldnt move.

    I found a mouse which had a usb connection and that one works ok.

    Can anyone tell me why the mouse port isn't working?

    I'am using xp pro AMD Athlon XP 2200+ 1.81 GHz 512 MB

    Could be as simple as a fault in the female receiving plug. I had a similar problem and managed to identify it by gently applying pressure twisting the plug back and forth making the mouse work briefly.

    Thanks for that it sounds probable. The mouse pointer was visable on each of the ones I tried but it just wouldn't move I'am not at home just now but I will try it when I get home and post back to say if it solved it :)
