The day of yesterday after a big electrical storm I found that the mouse and pad of my laptop Sony Vaio Vgn-Fw270AE
Didnt work . With some difficulty I found out, that to make the pad work, it was needed to install the AlpPointing device I did it and it worked.
The big trouble now is the port of mouse that windows (vista home premium)doesnt recognize.
So that if you could lend me a hand on this issue I´ll ask you to give me the explanation of what is goin on and if you have the USB device for this(I tried in the site of 4tech which is the maker of the mouse model X-718F)
By the way while I was trying to start the pad I desinstalled some information of ATI tecnologies (maybe there was the USB driver that Im looking tomake the externalmouse work.

More about :usb mouse keyboard removing ati drivers log
The USB drivers for the laptop's USB ports and for USB peripheral devices (like a mouse and keyboard) are built in to Windows. That's why mouse & keyboard manufacturer's do not supply drivers unless the device has special functions or additional buttons.
ATI drivers do NOT include a mouse driver, so it's nothing to do with that.
I suggest you try a different USB mouse, or use the Alps Touchpad.
Late reply but it happened to me yesterday on windows 8.1. The 14.6 beta driver uninstaller listed a lot of things including a USB Filter Driver. Wanted to install 14.7 beta and uninstalling 14.6 messed with usb drivers. Good on UEFI BIOS but upon booting nothing via USB works.
Hopefully had teamviewer installed with unattended option on so fixed PC with mi iPad installing the 14.7 beta drivers over network (teamviewer mouse interactions worked!). Reboot and was fixed.
Letting this info here so we get more curious about these tecnologies like VNC, TeamViewer and others that sometime save hours of troubleshooting.
