USB Problem
skor Oct-24-00 03:25 PM
Hi
I had a usb mouse that was working properly.
I had plugged in another usb device in its place.
It was one of those gimmick MYSMART mouse type pads from COMP USA. It work fine, but it was just a gimmick deal. So I uninstalled it. Now
I can't get my mouse to work when I plug it in.
I've uninstalled/reinstalled the usb ports to no avail.
Any Help?

There are USB problems specific to Windows 98, Windows 98 Se, and Windows Me... However, start here: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q206/0/02.ASP. It's probably a Windows registry entry left over from the MYSMART install. Larry

Hi Larry

Tried the microsoft help file, no luck.
When I reboot the computer, it seems to know
that the mouse is there. Unlike when you reboot
with no mouse connected at all. I don't know
where to turn from here. I tried to plug in a
usb printer and it will not reconize it.

If you have not already done so, try going into the Device Manager, double-click the USB Controller, click General, check the Disable in this hardware profile check box, restart Windows, uncheck the previously checked check box, and restart Windows. This should repair the usb.inf file and may fix the problem. Please let me know if this works. Larry

Hi Larry
Now if I go into device manage and remove the mouse, reboot, it reconizes the mouse, installs the drivers, at this point I can move the mouse.
It seems to work all but the scrolls, the it prompts to reboot. After it reboots the mouse will not work.

This mouse comes with software. If you have the software installed, I would uninstall, download the latest version from http://www.a4tech.com.tw/ftp.html, and install it. Larry

Hi Larry

THANK YOU. It finally works. Downloaded
different software than what I have for the mouse.
It's the the same software but it WORKS.
Actuall the software is better "more options" that
what i have.

Your new fan
Scott
