    Hi Guys

    My computer has 2 usb ports in front & 4 at the back.
    The problem is my mouse work when plugged in front but not work when plugged at the back.
    The light on the mouse is on but the cursor just won't move.
    I tried plugging flash disk at the back ports and they all works fine.
    Please help.

    Thank you

    Hi,

    What type of motherboard do you have and do you happen to check the specifications particularly with its onboard USB ports. Just thinking maybe you got USB 3.0 at the back and you're mouse is not compatible with it.

    My motherboard is Asus P5GCMX
    I believe all ports are USB2

    Yeah, That MoBo has 2.0 all. Though other devices works properly at the back, you can still try these steps:
    - reset BIOS to default
    - update your USB driver or completely uninstall and reinstall it.
