Default Fried Mouse?

No, not what I had for breakfast today, but I think my [computer] mouse may be dead.
It's a Razer Lachesis, and it doesn't move the cursor on the screen regardless which computer it's plugged into. All the other buttons (left/right click, forward/back..) do work however.
I also have a working Razer DeathAdder. Just like any good mouse should, everything works when I plug it in even without drivers. However just to be safe I did install drivers for the Lachesis and still no movement.
Might the laser sensor be dead?

Is there any debris that might be partially blocking the laser? If not, try reinstalling the drivers. If that doesn't work, I'd say it's fried.

Gave it a blast of compressed air, installed latest drivers and updated to latest firmware. Still same issue. Guess it's done.
