Guys, I've got a machine running ME that has lost its mouse. No pointer, no nothing. PS/2 mouse is present at boot. It is recognizing USB devices being plugged in but it still does not give any mouse control. However, if you boot into Safe Mode it will recognize and use the PS/2 mouse.
ah Mistake Edition, the OS I love to hate. :tongue2:
Lets see, have you installed anything before the error or made any changes to the registry?
If you did either, you may want to boot the system using the ME bootdisk and use the registry restore option to restore to an earlier working point (The only good feature of Me is the introduction of this option IMHO)
If that doesn't work, try completely removing the mouse from the device manager in safe mode, then rebooting normally and plugging it in the USB one and see if it starts working or not..
