    There is a utility you can use. Start UVCView.x86.exe. Then, watch
    the window, as you plug in the mouse. Is there any change
    at all ? Did a new USB device entry show up ?

    *******
    ftp://ftp.efo.ru/pub/ftdichip/Utilities/UVCView.x86.exe
    http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/USB_IDs/UVCView.x86.exe

    File size is 167,232 bytes.
    MD5sum is 93244d84d79314898e62d21cecc4ca5e

    This is a picture of what the UVCView info looks like.

    Some information on the parameters seen in UVCView.

    If the USB mouse won't light up, there isn't much chance
    you're going to see anything in that utility.

    Using the same USB port, what happens when other
    devices are plugged in right after that ?

    This may be the long way round but it will certify whether or not the
    problem is software or hardware related. From the site below download Linux
    Puppy, or Ubuntu, or Knoppix program as an ISO. Burn an installation disk
    for any one of them. In the bios set your computer to start with the CD-ROM
    first and and use the installation disk you have made. During the boot it
    will install a driver for the mouse. You will not have to install anything
    onto your hard drive, nor will it alter your XP installation in any form.If
    you get the mouse working then you will at least be assured that it is not
    the USB controller on your mb, or the mouse that is the problem.
