Mouse stops responding even on my desktop.If i look on my device manager
under keyboard and pointing devices the keyboard is there but the pointing
device is missing.If i restart sometimes my mouse will still not work.I have
XP Home sp2 installed and i have up graded my Nvidia software driver and
intellimouse driver.This started happening sometimes after a game CD had been
removed.Can anyone Help please?

Check cables for mouse. If using a usb/ps2 converter, check that it is
tightly connected.

You mention recently upgrading the intellimouse driver - do you mean that
you installed a new version of the intellipoint software? Did you uninstall
the old version first?

I hate to tell you this, but if you are still running V1.3A, you haven't
"updated" your intellimouse drivers or software... The software is
currently up to V5.something... I use V4.12 myself, as I like the
application specific button programming, which was removed in V5.0.

I'd check your connections and make sure that everything is secure... Is it
a PS2 mouse, or a USB mouse, or a USB mouse using a PS2 adapter?

Yes I installed intelliPoint 5.2 to try to resolve the problem but I did not
uninstall the old version first, should I have done?And how would I do it
now? I have undone some registry fixes in System Mechanic and up to now all
apears ok

Yes I did updated to V 5.2 after this started and I think you will find this
is application specific if you look.It is a PS/2 with no adapter.I have
undone some registry fixes in system mechanic and this may have sorted it out
fingers crossed!Thanks

Hopefully what you did cleared things up... You've got to watch those
registry fixes in software like System Mechanic or others like Norton System
Works, they work good MOST of the time, but can leave nasty surprises behind
if you're not careful...

So, version 5.2 of Intellipointer has the application specific programming
in it? Might have to try it, as V5.0, which I tried a while back, no longer
had it for some reason or another...

Thanks for the heads up, and I hope your problems are solved!
