    I have three wireless USB mice, they have all stopped working two days ago. The cursor is stuck in the center of the monitor. The USB keyboard and printer are both working.

    I've swapped ports, no change. I have run anti-virus, anti-malware software they found no problems. I cannot do a system restore, it was shut off (its back on now).

    My pc doesn't have any PS2 connections for a wired mouse.
    I don't use any mouse software, just the generic windows xp drivers.

    However, I did find a ps2 to USB converter, plugged in a wired ps2 mouse and it works.
    So why won't the wirelss USB mouse work ?

    So any idea's or suggestions as what I can try next ?

    Thank you for your time,

    Bonnie

    Just another piece of information. Now when I plug in the wireless USB mouse, the pc seems to recognize that I've done this as sounds a chime, but mouse still does not work.

    thanks
