I use a microsoft wireless USB mouse model 6000 which I use on 2 different computers. It currently works on my laptop but not on my desktop. When I boot up my desktop (Dell small format 80gig Pentium 4 processor) there is a cursor on the login screen but it will not move. When I connect the mouse to the laptop computer it works normally. Yesterday I deleted some Logitech mouseware from the desktop, but it shouldn't have made a difference on the Microsoft mouse. I am unable to use the desktop computer, and I cannot get the keypad to move the mouse (left ALT-left Shift-Num lock). I have disconnected the USB mouse and rebooted the computer, but it does not work. It doesn't seem to make any difference whether I reinstall the USB mouse before I boot the computer or afterward...nothing is working. Since I can't login I am unable to do anything to change the settings. I have also put the USB mouse key into several different USB ports. It works fine on the laptop computer but doesn't work on any of the ports on the desktop computer. Do you have any suggestion on how to login without having a functional mouse?

Do you have a wired mouse you can use or can you borrow one? Using the tab key and spacebar or enter key should allow you to select a user at the login screen.

I tried a wired mouse...didn't work. Still can't get past the login screen. It doesn't work to use the TAB key and SPACE bar to log in. Does anybody have other suggestions. There has to be a way to boot up a computer in the absence of a functioning mouse and get past the log in screen.

Think we had to reinstall Windows to get it working after I uninstalled the Logitech software and on reboot got floppy errors and no mouse.

The only suggestion I can think of is to try a PS/2 mouse or try reinstalling the Logitech software - think it removes some sort of driver.

can you get to safe mode?

try a CMOS reset. power down computer unplug from wall and open case and remove coin size battery from motherboard for a few minutes then put back in and start it up see if that helps.
