View Full Version : [ubuntu] mice not working

July 12th, 2011, 02:12 AM
My mouse has been sticking and freezing on Windows XP for a couple of months, gradually getting worse. Now the mouse doesn't work at all. So I tried Ubuntu, but that didn't fix the mouse.

I tried three different mice today (one at a time):

two PS2
one USB
with two different operating systems:

Windows XP (safe mode too)
Ubuntu 10.04 (booted from CD)
The mouse pointer just stays in the middle of the screen. The keyboard works fine.

My hardware is:

Model: Gateway 300S
CPU: Intel Celeron 2.00 GHz
Memory: 512 MB DDR266

What else can I check?
Do you think it's hardware or software causing the mouse to freeze?
