1. Go to Start Menu, then to Control Panel.
2. Now open Accessibility Options.

  1. Well, if it’s a serious problem and mouse is completely not responding then in that case, of course u can follow this strategy, and whenever you get some time, i suggest you u 2 take a new optical mouse as it has a higher resolution and moreover it’s cost has also came down considerably, to almost arond INR 125-150.

  2. Due to some kind of software error(it's not a hardware error)
    my usb ports doesn't work/respond at all. I can connect a ps2 keyboard to a ps2 port on the mobo, and it works. The mobo hasn't got a ps2 mouseport. Result: I can only navigate with keyboard, not with mouse. Is their a way to enable the 'keyboard mouse' using the keyboard alone? Thanks.
