    Help Please

    i have a Viglen Laptop. I am running win XP. My problem is that I have to restart my PC 4 or 5 times before it picks up the mouse. When it eventually pics up the mouse, I can shut down and restart as many times as I want and it would pick up the mouse. Only if I leave it unused for a day or more, it would not pick up the mouse. It has a touchpad mouse but I have tried it with a PS2 mouse and the exact same thing happens. I have tried removing the device and re-installing it. I formatted the hard drive and re-installed my opperating system and software but no joy.

    Please help.

    Go into your device manager, click view "show hidden devices", remove all grayed out entries, all entries with question marks, and all entries with exclaimation marks and reboot.
