PS2 mouse not responding, tried a new USB mouse with the same symptom. Reinstalled XP but produced no positive results.

Any suggestions?

Yup. done all those and also updated the BIOS.

Can I confirm that the MB is dead?

If the OS was reinstalled How did you navigate around the windows when you have to click next, or alter settings or was it all done Via Keystrokes ??

Did you remove anything with Nlite??

If so, what?

Because, if you remove the wrong applications / services etc in Nlite, it can affect the install / Windows later

:lol: OK cheating then :p

What about if you try a normal install - boot from a XP CD, see if the mouse works.

Will try a normal install later this afternoon before throwing away the MB.

Also try removing the CMOS battery - leave a about 5 minutes then put it back - sometimes strange things happen.

I wouldn't chuck the board. Tried other USB devices? Like speakers, kbs, cameras etc? They work? Then its not the ports.

It's weird. When I plugged in both the PS2 + USB mice, the USB mouse works 'quite' normally, but it stops responding for a couple of seconds (from 2-10 seconds) and then works again. Just after I clicked on something, it stops responding and back to normal after a couple of seconds!

The right-click button of the PS2 mouse is working normally but not the pointer, it doesn't move.

So when you slipstreamed whatever, did you remove any services or anything important??

If so what?

Thats probably why its playing up

What else - if anything is plugged into the PC apart from KB /Mouse/ monitor ?

Nothing apart from the PS2 & USB Mouse.

The system consists of the following:
1. DVD drive
2. PCI-E graphic card
3. Floppy drive
4. 1 x 1GB RAM
5. 1 x 200GB SATA HDD

Just tried without the PS2 mouse, every time when I restarted the PC, the USB mouse doesn't work - I have to plug in and out a couple of times before it starts to respond. But it still 'freezes' a few seconds after I click on something.

Device Manager shows the USB mouse as HID-compliant mouse; and there's another 'other device' (unknown device) with a big yellow '?' Don't really know what is it.

Delete the ? then reboot. It may bring up the hardware wizard, saying what its for

The hardware wizard doesn't recognise what it is and unable to install the driver.

How do I remove the '?' permanently form device manager? Is there a way at all?

No its there for a reason, it needs drivers, for whatever it is

Try reinstalling the chipset drivers.
