    If they use the same Microsoft driver then there is most probably something wrong with the Microsoft laser.
    It would help immensely if we know at least the model of the mouse you're referring to. Even a link would help.

    And for the record, I highly doubt the issue is OS or USB ports related. More likely the mouse itself is just faulty.

    I did put the model in the first post but it wasn't very clear.
    Model: MICROSOFT INTELLIMOUSE OPTICAL MOUSE ITE-78CJ

    The new Dell mouse seems to working fine.
    I think the driver for the Microsoft mouse got corrupted in some way.
    I did uninstall the driver for the Microsoft mouse but it was still the same.
    At least I have a fully working mouse again.
    Thanks everyone for their input.

    Just wondering: Is there a way of fixing a corrupted driver?
    I have a 64 and a x86 drivers still when I had mine on backup. If it's like my old one, which had a seperate wireless reciever, Capacitors become faulty in the reciever, just a guess. Message me and I can upload the drivers via Google Drive and send you the link for you to doownload if you like

    You do not need that driver you are quoting, it is really only for the very fancy ones. For a basic mouse it is just bloatware.
    Windows, it is an OS, all versions have a basic mouse driver that will work on multiple Brands, I use USB mice from MS, Logitech, HP they all use the basic driver OK. Plug it in and they just work.

    You don't have a corrupted driver, the mouse/cable is bust, bin it. The Dell mouse will use the same generic driver, and is usually just a badge engineered version from one of the usual manufacturers.

    Your "bloatware" statement is a matter of opinion and not fact. If one wants a simple mouse, Microsoft's basic driver works; if one wants a mouse with added features Microsoft's basic driver doesn't work.

    My Logitech MX Master 2S would be severely hampered without Logitech's Options software. A software takes less than 14megabyte and uses less than 0.1 percent of resources. Hardly "bloatware".

    Anyway, as stated, I agree the OP's mouse may be faulty.

    The Microsoft mouseI have is wired. I think it is the laser, or as mentioned, it could be the cable.
    I'm going to stick with the Dell one I have now. It's working perfectly.
    Thanks for the offer though.

    One query: When I connected the Dell mouse I could see it was loading a driver and took about 30 seconds to complete.
    Any idea if it was loading a new driver or going through the process of using the built in driver already installed on my laptop?
    Is this what would happen anyway when connecting something new via usb?
