Win7 Doesn't Detect Usb Mouse


I have a simple problem that i can't seem to fix. I have been using the same usb mouse for about a year now, and recently windows has stopped detecting it on startup. It is easy to fix, i simply unplug and replug it back in and windows recognizes it and the mouse works fine. But for some reason windows has stopped detecting it on startup.

I have tried different usb ports, i have tried unplugging all other usb devices and leaving just the mouse, and i have updated my drivers. It detects my usb keyboard and external hard drive every time, but windows has stopped detecting my mouse on startup. Suggestions?

Dual Psx Usb Adapter Won't Detect Ps2 Controller

I just upgraded to windows 7 home premium from using windows xp sp3. I was just using a plug and play psx-usb adapter and a playstation 2 controller to play games such as pro evo. Now on xp i just had to plug it in and it worked fine, the same was true of windows 7 to a point, i plugged it in, the system recognized it and automatically installed it (it shows up in the devices and printers tab as a dual psx adapter) however it doesn't seem to recognize the controller when its plugged in. I've tried the solutions listed here http://reabo.co.uk/_tutorials/usbadaptervista.aspx but they don't seem to have made any difference. Any ideas?

Plugging Usb Keyboard & Mouse Into Different Usb Ports

I have a usb keyboard and mouse. Recently, i had to relocate my computer, so the keyboard and mouse were unplugged. My question is: if i plug the keyboard and mouse back, but not into the original usb ports, will this cause windows 7 to create a new hardware profile, or any other registry changes as a result?

Usb Mouse Keeps Disconnecting

I have a g5 usb mouse that keeps stopping (and the lights and the laser turns off). I have been using vista when it started and looking at on the net i got only one answer my irq is messed up. I had a copy of windows 7 so i thought that may fix it. It didn't. My irq has 2 irqs that are sharing. Both have a usb driver on them. Irq #20 has "high definition audio controller" and "standard open hcd usb host controller.

And irq #22 "nvidia nforce networking controller" and "standard enhanced pci to usb host controller". I have tried every thing i can think of but no go.
(And i have almost broke my mouse it is so bad).

Usb Mouse And Keyboard Disabled

I managed to disable mouse and keyboard somehow when working in the device manager. My computer (acer revo 3600) only has usb ports so i can't undo my changes. The usb ports and mouse&keyboard are working. They work when i'm in the bios. The usb ports are not completely shut off in windows, my usb wlan is working. I've tried this:

- Safe mode (and all other modes offered in boot)
- Plug in new (previously unconnected) mouse in safe mode and normal mode.

What can i do?! Options are quite limited when i can't change anything in windows (7 x64).

Usb Mouse Randomly Freezing

My microsoft wireless natural ergonomic keyboard and mouse 7000 freeze randomly. Os: windows 7 64-bitdrivers: latest intellipoint intellitypelatest intel chipset drivers for p6x58d premium mobo, and all usb drivers installed. All drivers are up to date. Several other posters here are having the same problem. Their solutions have ranged from:1) disabling usb power management (tried unsuccessful)2) update drivers (done) update windows (done)3) use non usb mouse (not an option)4) dpc latency (checked, no problems)5) uninstall usb root hub drivers, reboot to reinstall (doesn't work) the only think i have left to suspect is that i had to plug in the mouse/keyboard before installing intellipoint/intellitype for the first time.

Since i built the system from scratch, and have no other key/mouse, i needed something to click/press to do the installation of windows, and intellipoint/intellitype. Yes, the instructions on the microsoft set say to install software first. Is this likely the source of the problem? Should i hunt down a ps/2 mouse, reinstall all usb/mouse drivers? Any other suggestions?

Wireless Usb Mouse On Lenovo T500

I'm about to install win 7 on a new lenovo thinkpad t500. According to a lenovo "windows 7 hints & tips" document: there is no wireless usb software for windows 7. Affected systems: - thinkpad r400 and r500 - thinkpad t61, t61p, t400, and t500 - thinkpad w500, w700, and w700ds - thinkpad x200, x200s, x200 tablet, and x301

Symptom: there is no wireless usb software for windows 7.

Cause: wireless usb devices for the above systems do not support windows 7. I'm not sure what "wireless usb devices" includes, but it sounds as if my microsoft wireless mobile mouse 6000 or wireless mobile mini mouse might not work after i install win 7. I'm also asking lenovo, but does anyone here know if a wireless usb mouse will work with win 7 (a) on any computer or (b) specifically on any of the listed lenovo computers?

Usb Headphones Not Working With Wireless Mouse

I have a problem with my usb headphones teac hp-7d (cm-106). Windows 7 installs drivers correctly and i can get a sound from them. But when i insert my wireless (mouse gigabyte gm-m7700) "dongle" to usb, the sound from my headphones disappears. When i try to run "test sound" under the sound in control panel, the green bars moves only afther 5-6 seconds and by the speed of the move it appears to be much slower then normally. It is doing with default mouse driver too. My computer is notebook sony vaio vpceb1s1e and i have windows home premium. Thanks for your suggestions and advices.

No Usb Devices Works Except Mouse / Keyboard

There are some threads here about non working usb devices. I read them all (i think) and tried all different kind of solutions but none is working. I have a hp ex500aa-b1u desktop. I used to have xp enterprise. One day the mouse and keyboard stopped working. I suspected some kind of virus and after a lot of work managed to start it in fail safe mode, backed up my files and then reinstalled xp.
Mouse and keyboard started working but all oter devices i put in (usb flash memory, camcorder, usb disk etc) just get the message "unknown usb device". I installed w7 enterprise instead but still have the same problem.

Is it possible that i had a virus that did something to my bios? I also have a built in usb disk that came with the computer. This disk is found after maybe 15 minutes after startup. But the speed when copying something from it is very slow. Maybe 700 kb/s.

Microsoft Usb Mouse Freezes After Sleep

I've turned off power save on *all* usb ports+hubs+devices. The only way i can remedy the problem is to unplug the mouse from the usb port and plug it back in. The system reports reloading the driver and the mouse works until the next incidence of sleep. Mouse driver dated 6/21/2006, version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 is shown by system to the the most current. I appreciate the power saving, but i really shouldn't have to do this each time. Any help?

Sleep Issue With Mouse And Wireless Card On Usb

I put this toshiba laptop to sleep and incur problems. Win 7 home premium toshiba l455i notice that after i close the top [and induce the sleep] or if manually sleep using the start button, after a minute or so i notice that the mouse led is on, along with the leds for my sprint card.

Watching and listening carefully, i notice that the laptop wakes up, and will beep, an indication that the touchpad has disengaged, noticing that the mouse is plugged in. If i open the laptop, it is standing at the login screen. Why is this?  Why can't i get the thing to sleep. I first noticed this when i started up, and it needed to return from hibernation, with a battery at a low/critical stage.

Win 7 Recognize Usb Gps As A Serial Mouse

Windows 7 + usb gps becomes serial mouse = bad news*i know this has been asked quite a few times on here, and a solution has yet to appear, but since it has been awhile since the last time it was posted i thought i would see if any progress has been made. Problem: plugging in a usb gps, or a serial gps connected via a serial->usb adapter causes windows 7 to improperly recognize the device as a serial mouse, and since the data stream is rapid, the mouse pointer begins to jump all over the screen.

In xp, disconnecting the gps temporarily left behind the serial mouse in device manager, and disabling it there would then allow the system to be used again. Unfortunately, in win 7 when the gps is unplugged the system immediately removes the device from device manager. Additionally, the tools microsoft had released to combat this problem on the front end have not been released for windows 7. So we have the choice, continue to hold the laptop rollout, or revert to rolling them out with xp. Neither option is ideal. Anyone have any ideas?

Wireless Keyboard & Mouse - Share The Usb Key

Wireless keyboard & mouse bought separately, can they share the usb key? I have bought a ms wireless mouse 4000 and am wondering if i can buy the keyboard separately and have them use the same usb key. I only have 3 usb slots, and don't want 2 of them occupied by a mouse & keyboard. Do i need to buy the keyboard & mouse as a single unit? Or can i mix & match ?

Usb Mouse / Keyboard Drivers Failing To Install

I have a strange problem with mouse and keyboard usb drivers can anyone suggest any way forward?

I have a desktop computer running windows 7, upgraded using a custom install from windows vista. It has a pair of hard drives configured as raid 1 and a usb mouse and keyboard. I recently had to replace the power supply after the old one failed and ever since then at each startup of windows i get a message that it is trying to install usb drives for 2 keyboards and one mouse (i only have 1 keyboard!) By downloading drivers from windows update. The install always fails and after this i am unable to use the mouse or keyboard in any usb ports apart from the ones they were connected to when windows started.

Trying to connect any other mouse or keyboard to the other usb ports after windows has started again generates the "device driver software was not successfully installed" message and the device is not usable.

Other usb devices work fine - e.g. I can plug a memory stick into any of the usb ports and that installs fine and works perfectly.

I tried doing a manual update in device manager which shows 2 keyboards and a mouse under the human interface device section but each time i tried update driver i had a "file not found" error and the device disappeared from device manager. I could only get them back by doing a system restore.

I have tried a windows repair boot, a chkdsk, a sfc /scannow and even a full system image restore back to before my power supply failed but none of these acions have made any difference.

I'm considering a full reinstall of windows 7 but this will be a pain as there will be quite a few applications to reinstall and i don't know for sure if it will fix the problem.

Can anyone suggest anything else?  Is it possible to manually copy / check / replace the exact driver files for usb keyboard and mouse?

Usb Keyboard / Mouse Not Working After Upgrade To Win7

Upgraded vaio vgn-fz290 to win 7 from vista. Have ms digital media pro keyboard and wireless intellimouse explorer 2. 0. Both work fine if i use them on another computer, and worked fine on the vaio before upgrading to w7. When i plug them in they do not show up in the "safely remove hardware" or under usb devices, keyboards or mice in device manager. When i plug the keyboard in the "f" function light comes on for 1 second and then goes out. When i plug in the wireless receiver for the mouse no lights come on.

Basically the computer acts like nothing is even plugged into the usb. Tried every usb port, same result. Also used my usb flash drive successfully in each usb port, so it is not a bad usb port. No splats show up in device manager. I have also tried an old usb keyboard, and get the same result. If i open "safely remove hardware" i see all other usb devices plugged in, but not the keyboard or mouse.

I have installed the w7 drivers from ms and no difference. I have uninstalled the drivers, no difference. I have uninstalled my primary laptop keyboard and rebooted, still won't recognize the usb keyboard. I can plug the keyboard and/or mouse into my mac mini server and it works like a champ.

I am utterly clueless on what else i can do and hate using a small keyboard and track pad at my desk.

G5 Gaming Mouse / Usb Random Power Failures

Ok, after months of searching for answers as to why my g5 dies randomly i thought i'd beat my head against the wall some more here with the faintest glimmer of hope i might have overlooked a possible solution. People are already thinking, why am i posting about a logitech device here? Simply because i dont believe there is anything wrong with the mouse or the logitech drivers and i'm looking for a nasty, evil, evil culprit within windows. I love this mouse and it may sound dumb, but from a gamers point of view - upgrading to a newer model/diff brand mouse is not a solution. This is "the mouse" for me.

This device worked perfectly till i upgraded to windows 7, i have had it a few years and a very similar model for years prior to it. I have faith in it and it's durability. What i experience is difficult to explain but have seen it described often elsewhere. At times that seem completely random, the usb power to the mouse fails. Then, after anything from 0. 1s to 30s it returns. Some days this happens once, other days, like today - it will occur every 15s whilst in game and the machine is under stress. I've attempted switching usb ports, updated drivers for the mouse, chipset, tweeked power suspend settings and nothing has helped.

I have tested another bottom of the line logitech mouse, not a problem at all. I've tested the g5 on xp os machine, no issues. I'm not sure what has happened but until a few months ago, even with win7 installed the g5 worked perfectly. I believe an update i picked up somewhere along the way seems to have done something to cause the problem. Unfortunately though, i have no idea which or how to resolve the problem. Any advice would be much appreciated, as i'm about ready to give win7 the shelf and revert back to a more trustworthy xp.

Usb Mouse / Keyboard Stop Working Correctly

I originally had windows vista x64 on my computer (it is 8 months old, intel quad core 2. 0ghz, 6 gb ram etc). I installed windows 7 rc in july (clean install) and used it until 2 weeks ago, when i installed windows 7 professional edition (i reinstalled vista and then installed the windows 7 upgrade using the clean install).

Over the past few days, i have had problems with mouse and keyboard (both usb connected). The inputs start acting bizarrely. For example, using the scroll button in firefox causes the font sizes to change in firefox, instead of scrolling, and clicking on links opens the link in a new windows, not in the same window. Right clicking stops functioning. The keyboard input goes simultaneously strange- i can no longer type (for eg in firefox search boxes, or in wmp), of if i type, it uses another command to open something etc.

I do not understand what is going on! However, after rebooting, the problem goes away and everything works fine, until the next time it happens (has happened 3x now). I have tried my mouse and keyboard in my old laptop and they both seem to work fine. I have not receive any driver errors/ virus messages/ malfunction(bitdefender 2010) messages of any kind, and as far as i know, all drivers are up to date.

Does anyone know what is going on? Is there something wrong with my motherboard? And if so, why are there no error messages? And why do things work again after rebooting?

My averatec 4200 laptop was just upgraded to windows 7. The dvd/cd drive worked fine when i installed windows 7, but for some reason it is no longer visible, anywhere.

Device manager - nothing
My computer - nothing

I have tried everything i can think of. The dvd player hasn't been removed physically and reinstalled. Also, when i put in a dvd the player spins, but nothing is detected.

Win7 Will Not Detect Second Monitor

I have a pc running windows 7 professional and windows vista ultimate with a dual boot setup. I have two screens pluged into an nvidia gts 8800 video card. The first screen is an hp 22" lcd which is plugged directly into one of the two dvi outputs on the video card. The second screen is a sharp 52", 1080p hdtv which is plugged into the second dvi port on the video card via an hdmi cable plugged into a hdmi to dvi adapter.

Both monitors work perfectly when i boot to windows vista but when i boot to windows 7 the 52" screen is not recognized at all. If i switch the cords plugged into the video card the 52" will work and the 22" will not be detected.

Cannot Detect Wireless Connection

I have a wireless modem set up and other laptops in my house can get a signal but my own personal laptop cannot. The wireless network list on my computer shows that the network is detected and that i am connected. Despite this, the signal comes in and out and tends to be very weak. The signal on the bottom right shows full bars so the signal is supposedly very good but somehow i cannot get on the internet. I have tried multiple websites and the message that internet explorer cannot open the web page comes up.

Win7 Does Not Detect External Monitor

I have just upgraded to win7 home premium 32 on a sony vaio laptop. Previously i was running vista business. I was happily using an lg1512s monitor plugged through the vaio docking station.
Post the win 7 install, my laptop does not recognize the external monitor. I have gone on to the control panel all control panel items-display-screen resolution and the multiple screen dialogue does not appear.
 
I have with no success:

· Clicked detect in the control panelall control panel itemsdisplayscreen resolution
· Clicked the f7 monitor on/off button.
· Plugged the monitor directly into the vaio (i.e. Not through the docking station)
· Used windows-x and tried to use the mobility centre to connect the external monitor.

Meanwhile i have plugged the monitor into another laptop i use that is running vista home and the monitor lights up so i know the monitor and the cables are ok. The problem is that win7 is not seeing the external monitor. Any ideas?

Applications Cannot Detect Dvd Drive

I am having trouble with my cdvd burner, as no applications on my computer recognize the drive at all. The hardware was working fine and was displayed under a list of burners in applications like cyberlink dvd, nero, windows iso burner, windows media player; now it is not displayed at all. I constantly get error messages that "no burners were detected" or to "connect a burner and restart the [windows media] player. " The drive does however appear in windows explorer and i am able to play dvd's from it (although i believe these are stored in a temporary cache).

I have already attempted to reinstall the driver from "device manager dvd/cd-rom drives hp dvd rw ad-7581s ata device" but this had failed. I have also run the online "playing and burning cds dvds and bds" troubleshooted from microsoft; it finds no problems, probably since it did not actually burn any data to test it. I've also downloaded the mats_run. Dvd.exe which supposedly fixes the problem automatically, this just downloaded massive amounts of data and went to the above troubleshooter. I am not able to burn dvds and no applications even detect i can.

Macbook Does Not Detect Wireless Network

Window 7 installed on macbook - does not detect any wireless network/connection at all only on windows os system side. I have installed windows 7 on my new macbook, so my macbook operate both on apple macos and windows os. However, my windows os side does not detect any wireless network at all. When i switch back to apple os, there is no problem connecting to the internet and there is no connection problem at all.

But for some reason, my windows 7 does not detect or show any available wireless network. I use linksys wrt-110, and i don't think it is my router problem because it works perfectly on apple macos system. Does anybody have any solution? I am not very tech-savvy, i.e. , I need step-by-step explanation as to how to tackle this.

System Wont Detect Cds

After performing a clean install of windows 7 pro my computer wont detect music cds. It will play movies with its corresponding audio. But it wont play regular music cds originals, burned or from any file extension of music cds it wont just detect that the cd is loaded in the cd rom tray.

I already tried  windows trouble shouting and nothing. Checked file extension association and everything appears to be in order. I also ran drm. Also perform cd, dvd region check. Lastly i also perform a system check from the windows command prompt and found nothing either.

Anybody have any other ideas?

Cannot Detect 2nd Hdmi Tv Display

I had a vga display as my primary display and a hdtv display via a hdmi cable as a second display hooked up to my computer. This worked fine until a month ago. When at first the picture showed only a zoomed in top left hand corner of the screen on my hdtv with all psychedelic colours the first thing i tried was a roll back of the updates but this had no effect, as dis changing the cable. Then when i changed the graphics card windows 7 stopped being able to 'detect' my second display with either card.

Any ideas or solutions would be most helpful?

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

Win 7 Does Not Detect Sdhc Memory Card

Just got a new hp elitebook 6930p computer with integrated sd card reader with ricoh r/rl/5c476(ii) card bus controller. I have used my 4gb verbatim sdhc memory cards successfully in my old xp machine (hp nc 4-thousand something) with a sdhc update from microsoft.

The problem is that windows 7 does not detect my sdhc card when inserted. I suspected something similar what i needed to do in xp, but i am unable to find new drivers or similar sw patches.

I tried to uninstall smart card reader from windows device manager along with all usb controllers (as instructed in an article in this forum), then rebooting (thus updating usb stack), but without luck.

I also got usbdeview sw to see what is happening. It seems that that device (usb 2. 0 flash disk usb device) is not connected, drive letter seems fine (g:, no conflicts), device is enabled (and it does not help if i disable and then enable it again). What i should do to have windows 7 support sdhc cards?
