    This is ridiculous.

    This morning my USB wired optical mouse failed. The pointer would not move but left & right mouse buttons worked !!! It is a standard MS Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1 USB & PS/2 compatible. It will not light up. It is plugged in direct not via hub.When I unplug & plug back = Device not recognised.

    I then plug in spare wired USB SONY Optical 3D mouse - same problem ...left & right buttoms works ...mouse pointer frozen. Identical scenario with wired USB Logitech trackerball mouse.

    NO Windows mice functional.

    I take MACALLY dotmouse from MACBOOK PRO & plug in and it works perfectly.

    What is going on ...this is weird. Still no working ' MS ' mouse.

    Have you tried using a different USB port? Also make sure the bios setting for 'support for USB mouse ' is enabled if you have such a setting.

    Hi there

    All MS mice non-functional plugged directly into Shuttle not hub; as is the workiing MACALLY mouse.
    Using VISTA ultimate...will check BIOS but settings not changed.

    Removing mice from HID in Device Manager disables MACALLY as well ( own goal). Restart makes no difference to MS mice. Plug in MACALLY then returns mouse functionality.

    MUCH MUCH more suspicious of those MS automatic updates.

    Hi Richard,
    what i actually meant was if you have the mouse plugged into the front usb ports then try the ones at the back.
