Crazy Mouse

By shane ·
My mouse will move up and down but not side to side.
I have checked for viruses, installed the latest video drivers, installed a known good mouse, reinstalled Win98SE...still no side to side movement. It is a PS2 mouse so I tried a serial mouse...same thing.
There are no conflicts in the device manager. I have not installed any new software. The power supply failed and I replaced that. Could the failed power supply have damaged the motherboard or chip? Why would this symptom happen with both PS2 and serial mice?
AMD K6-II 500, 64MB ram, Diamond SIII 540 AGP video, Win98SE.
Thanks for any help.

Try to install the mouse under a DOS enviroment. If it still doesn't work, then you have a defective motherboard and you should replace it. Good luck.

Same thing in Dos...guess the only thing left is to replace the mobo. The bad part is it's only about 2 months old.

The only way this could be a possibility is if their was a power surge at the time of the power supply failure and if I recollect there was a similar question,the problem sound like a electrical discharge that only damaged the circuit and the symtoms are getting worse,so try looking into a new motherboard.

Thanks for the answer, but it was connected to a good surge protector.
