    I have a microsoft wireless optical mouse 2000 and it just fucking stopped working. I was viewing OTAH and out of nowhere the cursor disappeared. I restarted the computer and the cursor came back and it was stuck in the middle of the screen and wouldnt respond to the mouse moving.

    I replaced the batteries in the mouse and the laser is on, I plugged the receiver in a different USB port, i clicked the connect button on the mouse and receiver, and nothing worked.

    what the fuck happened? im on a wired usb mouse now

    It could be a bunch of different things... Have you tried the obvious uninstall/reinstall of the software/drivers?

    Can you try the mouse on another machine? I have seen them go bad before.
