    My usb mouse is not recognised at boot up, although the touchpad works OK. If I disconnect the mouse and plug it in again, it starts to work immediatly. I fear the plug will wear out, as well as being a bit of a nuisance.
    I have downloaded a new driver from "TRUST" a few days ago, but no change. There may be a program to run at startup, but I cant find anything which I recognise as a mouse start up program. Any suggestions.
    Thanks

    Hey there.
    Let me get this straight, when you boot up in to OS your mouse does not work, only after you re-plug it then it works right?

    If yes did you have any problems like that before?
    Did you try a different USB port?
    Did you modify your startup settings?

    Has the mouse worked ok in the past ? What model is it ? Did you get the driver from Trust ? Got a link to where you got the new driver ?

    Thank you all for your iterest in my problem. sorry I have not replied before but I have been away.
    Yes, Microalex, the mouse would only work after I removed and then replugged it in again, and the new driver was dwnloaded from TRUST, the mouse manufacturer (to whom I could not get an email support request off too). I dont thhink I installed any other software that may have caused problems. I have however had cause, because of a frozen system, to remove mains power and the battery to switch the machine off, after which I restarted in safe mode. From there I rebooted normaly, and lo and behold, the mouse driver is now loaded and shows as an icon on the menu bar along the bottom of the screen and works as it should. I can only assume the safe mode boot kicked something into place. Thanks again for yur interest. If the problem returns, maybe I can come back to you.
    Thanks
