I have a USB optical mouse, running “W2000 Server” which does not get detected when Windows is started up. I know of a lot of people who have a similar problem. I have looked at the Microsfot Site for a solution and they suggest a fix is included in their latest service pack i.e SP4 and have run this with no avail. I have also tried all the other tricks which could have been tried and have not been able to fix my problem.
What makes this problem even more amazing is that when i first bought the mouse it worked fine for many weeks and the mouse suddenly stopped working with no apparent reason. Even more amazing is that it works fine when under W2000 professional so there is nothing wrong with the mouse itself.
If anyone has a solution for this probem I would be grateful if they could post it here.
