OK well i did that, and it rebooted. Cept' this time when it rebooted it didn;t recognize the mouse at all
So i shutdown with the keyboard and logged in again, and THIS time it said it installed new hardware and rebooted. Now i'm on it again and it seems to be working out. But i haven't completely shut-down yet and since it messed up once i still have my doubts.
Coudl it be i disabled my plug and pplay service along with like half of the others i don;t need?
I also noticed i have "HID-compliant mouse" AS WELL AS "PS/2 compliant mouse" under my device mangaer. am i sposed' to have both of these at once? Maybe i can uninstall the HIS one and it might stop messing up?
I'm going to do a complete shutdown and see fi it works before uninstalling stuff.
Edit: ARGH! Still doesn't work, and i disabled the HIS mouse as well to no avail. hmm...i guess only option now is services? but i'm not going through all of them turning them on unless someone can confirm it might be the problem. I ran this by my dad and he said it could just be a defective mouse or shrot in the cord or something...it's kinda old so that might be it. But at this moment i don;t have a spare unlesss i want to go in the attic. so...any more advice? i'm stumped on this one...
