Peripheral issues

this question has to do with mice

i have a microsoft intellimouse explorer.. the one with the red light at the bottom..

well not to long ago, the mouse just started going crazy on me.. it would turn on, then off, then on.. and so forth.. after the second time it'd turn off.. i'd have to unplug, then replug the usb port back in to get it working..  i also tried it with ps/2 same problem..

i was wondering if you thought this was a mouse issue, or driver software issue (and yes i uninstalled, and reinstalled)

also,.. this is a more important question.. does the apple pro optical mouse work with pc systems??

RE: Peripheral issues

well,i think you could probably try installing that mouse on some other machine, and if it acts wacky, you could probably isolate it to the mouse itself.  If not, at least that would eliminate one possibility.

How much more water would there be in the ocean if it weren't for sponges?
