I have been trying to figure why the USB legacy mode in BIOS works incorrectly when I use programs like Norton Partition magic, Acronis or any program who runs without Operating System and have Graphic Interface.
In Windows & Linux it works fine.

In ANY of these programs, when I move the mouse horizontally, the cursor moves vertically, if I click, the cursor moves right a bit and if I move the mouse vertically the cursor remains still. Thus any program with GUI is unusable and I can't do well with the keyboard.

If I disable the USB legacy option, the mouse doesn't work at all.

Can this be a BIOS problem? should I update it? I couldn't try another mouse since I have not another one.
Thanks.

HI...

Well, it could be a BIOS problem, but I have never seen it happen unless the mouse had issues. Have you tried the mouse in different ports while using LEGACY mode?

You will eventually have to try it with another mouse. In the mean time you can go to the motherboard manufacturer's website and see if they have a BIOS update for your board; you can check the fix logs on their website to see if this issue has been listed in the fixes.

Thanks!

I would as IT said try another port especially if your using a front port then try rear that is directly attached to the motherboard.

Some of the programs you mentioned could load there own drivers so it would be a good idea to try another mouse maybe your mouse is not somehow supported

It may be the USB controller. I saw the same results with a crappy VIA-based USB card I bought. Worked fine in Linux and Windows but under anything that wasn't an operating system it was useless.

Hello Tech and Doby :)
Yes I tried every port on the rear (I don't have front ones, my tower chassis is very old :rolleyes: )
I found in Gigabyte's web that there is a new BIOS for my motherboard

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_Model.aspx?ProductID=2775#anchor_os

Though it only adds support for new processors.
I don't have another mouse for now though I will try to borrow another one..
Many thanks :)

Hello ebackhus :)
Yes, it works fine in Windows 7 and Ubuntu without problems, the mouse is identified as "HID compatible mouse" in Win7
My USB controller is integrated on the motherboard and (I supposed) it is an AMD-based because my chipset (AMD 740G NB & AMD SB700 SB) it is. Does it have a known bug related to legacy mode?
Many thanks

I have tried disabling the USB2.0 controller and disabling the USB keyboard legacy (my keyboard is a PS/2 one) but no luck...
