My usb logitech lazer mouse (not wireless) suddenly stopped working the other day, and I've been getting this odd message at the corner of the screen that says a usb device that is connected has malfunctioned, and windows doesn't recognise it. The computer has also been very slow in starting up, and is a black screen for maybe 30 seconds before anything happens. There's a couple of other quirks, but that's the main part of it.

Thanks if anyone can offer help!

Ok, we found out the answer! It badly needed cleaning, and after dusting and vaccuuming it out, it worked fine!

For anyone else, that's what we did to fix that problem.
