I know this might not be entirely relevant but I thought I'd give it a shot before fraternising with our white-cursored friends and signing up to one of their forums. I have three mice: at present, all are blind: A Wacom Grapire Tablet (which needs a driver from the Wacom site) A Microsoft wired IntelliMouse A Mikomi wireless mouse When I plug 2 or 3 in, windows says 'found new hardware' and the cursor starts moving. In a few seconds it says 'hardware installed and ready to use' and the cursor stops working. I believe the fault to lie in mouse 1. During the installation of the Wacom Driver, the 'found new hardware' dialogue comes up and closes a few times, which suggests that Wacom suppresses any uninstalled mice (presumably so Windows doesn't interfere or try to install it). So I uninstalled the Wacom driver, but the other mice still don't work. All the mice are fully operational on other computers. Operating System: XP SP2 So I need to find out what goes on between 'found new hardware' and 'installed and ready to use' which stops my mice working. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
