Intellimouse Optical problem
In work we have a Compaq Evo N160 laptop. It runs fine, although the touchpad is a pain to use, so we bought a USB Intellimouse. There is no ps/2 slot on the laptop.
The laptop runs on win2k, and the mouse was apparently compatible with it, so we got it, and tried to install it. It wouldn't work after resetting though. It tried to uninstall the touchpad, as it says the conflict wouldnt allow the mouse to work. Clicked ok, reset, but still nothing - and the touchpad still worked.
Tried it on a desktop, and it installed and worked first time.
Back to the laptop - downloaded the latest intellipoint software from MS.com, tried to install again - again its dead.
In System it says the drivers are not installed correctly, so chose the option to reinstall driver. Same problem, just won't work.
Tried removing it, and rebooting to let it re-detect - still didnt work.
I'm all out of ideas :S
