Thumbs down Optical Mouse Freezes

Hi

I have a really new computer running win XP and every once in a while my IBM optical mouse pointer will freeze..

the only way. to get it to work is to shut down computer and unplug the mouse then plug the mouse in again ..
just shutting down does nothing.

Tom

Might be a bad connection between PS/2 or USB port and mouse cable. Or it could be a faulty motherboard - try another mouse and see if you have any problems (this will show you where the error is situated).
