Mouse only works in 1 USB port

I recently tried taking my mouse of the USB port it's in and moving it to a different one - however, when I did that, it wouldn't work in that or any other USB port. It seems to have found a home and refuses to go anywhere else. Any idea how to fix this?

Did you try powering down your machine between switching ports? It may just need a chance to boot up and recognize it in a different port.

The only solution I've come across so far is to remove all the USB drivers, put the mouse where you want it, and let them reconfigure themselves after a reboot.
Admittedly this isn't the best solution because you'll probably take out your mouse and KB doing so, but it's all I've found so far.
I'm still working on it - I'm in that situation right now and am trying to find a better fix....

There is no reason to stick with Ivy.
