I've looked through the hardware forum but I think this is a little different from other problems I've seen regarding the mouse. Anyway the software is Windows 2000, the hardware is HP. HP computer Vectra VL with a HP mouse. The system no longer detects the mouse. Cold reboot or either a restart doesn't work. I tried switching out the mouse with another mouse but that didn't work either. When I restart it boots up but doesn't recognize the mouse. Rebooting does take me to a screen where it says mouse not detected wait a few seconds. Anyone got any ideas?
