When it's booting up, the red light of the mice comes on. I go into BIOS, the red light on the Microsoft mouse goes on, just like when I boot into Windows XP. The red light on the Logitech mouse stays on though.

So you're saying that my PSU could be going? The computer is pretty old...Pentium 4 @ 1.5Ghz with 256MB RAMBUS....Generic case and PSU. My dad bought the computer from eSkyNet back in like 2001 and now I just use it as a multimedia computer.

I've tried 3 different USB slots and the PS2 slot. None of them work, but the mouse light does come on as I said earlier.

For as long as I could remember, I never installed any mouse drivers on that computer. These two mice always worked as soon as I plugged them into the computers. Plus the Microsoft mouse has been connected to the computer since September of 2008.
