Well it all started when i left the pc without usage for about 2 months couse i needed to buy ram, when i bought the ram i put it in and guess what... the pc turns on but doesnt boot, after a long week i discovered it was the processor gold pins that were bent over so i stood up the pins (only 2 pins broke off) and the pc booted, then after trying to install windows xp my Genius usb mouse didnt work and i have an old ge ps2 mouse from like the 90s and used it to install windows xp... And before i left the pc without usage the usb mouse worked great, ive tested EVERYTHING power supply, changed cmos battery, resseted cmos, device manager enhanced usb controller, copying sys windows mouse files from another windows xp... i even bought a new pc case with 2 usb 2.0 ports infront that i connected to the motherbourd and still have the issue, the weird thing is... when i connect a flash drive nothing shows i have to go to device manager and uninstall and install enhanced usb controller and the flash drive shows but no help with the mouse, i have reinstalled windows xp and even windows 7 but nothing the mouse doesnt work in safe mode either... it works on every computer in the house i have 4, idk what the crap this could be so i need some help, thanks oh and btw the mouse powers on i mean the laser turns on but doesnt move or anything.
Yes. A defective cpu can cause these sorts of issues. All pins are required for proper use.
Ok, i have a e5700 processor thats compatible with my mobo, if i change the processor maybe it could fix the problem? or if it's missing 2 pins im ruined and have to buy another mobo? Or just use ps/2 mouses for the rest of my life? D:
Ok i think that's the problem because ive sorted out every single possible encounter for this problem... and ofc the fix is changing my mobo, don't have the cash to buy a new mobo so i think i'll use ps/2 mouses till i can buy a new mobo, Amazing how 2 tiny little gold pins can damage a mobo like that...TYVM for you'r help!
