Thumbs down optical mouse problem


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.

have you gone to the IBM driver site and downloaded the latest drivers?

Life doesn\'t always go how you want it, but it sure goes the way that you make it....

Get a new mouse and see if it happens to it. If it doesn't then you know there is a problem with the IBM mouse.
