Hi,

For some reason, my laptop will not recognize my Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer when I plug it into any of my laptop's 3 USB ports. This has never happened before; usually it works fine.

I found a driver for the mouse, but when I tried to install it, a message said that my laptop's touch pad (it's primary "mouse" device) would be deactivated, which I don't want to happen.

Why is my laptop not letting me use my regular mouse?

Thanks.

Argh...

It's not working again.

When I plug my mouse into any of the three USB ports in my laptop, a bubble in the lower-right corner of the screen says "USB Device Not Recognized."

I've tried everything from installing a driver from microsoft.com to unplugging, rebooting, plugging back in, etc.

What could all of a sudden be wrong with my mouse? :tazz:
