USB ports wont work with mous

My usb ports have pretty much stopped working with my mouse (all mice). I can plug them in and sometimes the red laser light on the mouse will go on and the mouse will work but most times now the mice won't work. The keyboard still works, but none of the mice will work. The mice work if I plug them into my laptop, but not on the desktop. It's a homebuit AMD 939 system.

I'm in the process of building a new Intel i5 1155 Z68 system now, but it's not fininshed, so perhaps this question is moot or pointless.

I'm just curious if this has happened to anyone else and if they know what the reason and/or cure is.

Thanks all.

I had a similar problem where external HDDs/ODDs wouldn't work on some USB ports.

I solved it by "resetting" the USB ports:

Turn off machine.
Unplug power chord to PSU.
Leave for a couple of minutes.
Replug chord and power up.

Hope this helps some.
