IMB Optical Navigator USB mouse not reconized during a cold startup or warm reboot.
Posted on 2004-04-09
Hello, my name is Forrest. I have a IBM Optical Navigator USB mouse that is never reconized during a startup or warm reboot
of the system. The only way the mouse will function is to have the mouse disconnected from the USB ports, ( I have eight ports available) during the startup sequence, and then after the sign into account screen appears,I connect the mouse and it will usually function alright till I restart the system the next time. I am running Win XP Professional OS. But sometimes (and this is the really strange part) I am using the new DFI LanParty NFII Ultra motherboard.
After getting to the desktop sometimes the mouse cursor will not respond again, but the OS recognizes the movement of the mouse and the mouse clicks and will open programs from the shortcuts on the desktop but yet the cursor is not moving at all !!
When I have attempted to install the mouse software that came with the mouse Win XP warns me that the software I am about to
install is not Microsoft Certified for use with XP and will probley cause system instability. I tried installing the software anyway
but this did not cure the problem. I have searched for hours on the Internet for Win. XP approved drivers and am unable to find any on the IBM website or the Microsoft drivers site. Can you please help ? I have the latest McAfee virus detection program, and 3 different spyware programs plus two pop up blockers, and Zone Alarm set to maximum security.etc. I keep these programs updated daily and run them everyday.
Thank You for your valuable time and attention.
