Computer Mouse

Not sure why I have to do this, but each time I boot up my system I have to pull my USB mouse out of the USB port and insert it back in for my PC to detect it.  I shouldn't have to do this as it should load when booting up.  Not the case.  I'm using Windows XP.  I'm wondering if this is just a simple fix in the BIOS or is it something else?  I have Plug-n-Play running (I believe).  Any suggestions are GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Does the problem started suddenly or it persisted since system installation/ mouse purchase? First check on the other computer if the problem can be replicated if yes the mouse may be a problem, if not try using different drivers, you can upgrade your motherboard drivers as well and see if that help. You can try setting up a deferment account and see if the problem persists there too.

See if replacing the mouse solves the problem.  If that fails, check the BIOS for the following:

If there is a setting for "Legacy USB devices" (Hi-speed/Full-speed), try it in the other state.

If there is a setting for "Legacy USB keyboard and mouse," try it in the other state.

If there is a setting for "Plug and Play operating system,"  try it in the other state.

If all of the above fail, then it would be worthwhile to investigate the USB drivers in the system to see if they are up to date.
connect the mouse to another port (front- back) and check if it still happens
