Mandalasa,

Have you tried a new mouse?  Also your PS/2 Port may be bad.  Try a USB mouse if you dont want to replace the board (if it is bad.)  


First thing to try is to see if you have a virus?  

Second thing to try is use another mouse to see if it makes any difference.  

Third you can try to uninstall PS/2 mouse ports and mouse drivers via Safemode and then reboot and see if the computer autodetects and reconfigures PS/2 ports...

If theses don't yield any good results then try a new mouse.  To see if the PS/2 port may be bad.  If that doesnt work then get a USB mouse.  Or SERIAL (Heaven forbid)

Have you unplugged and plugged in this PS/2 mouse while the system was turned on?

mandalasa,

I thought I proposed a new mouse....and to try the mouse on another system first?

I posted my comments on 5/8/2002....and kiranghag posted his on 5/10/2002?

Why did you grade this as you did?
I do not understand.......?
