Question I just updated BIOS, and now my mouse is going bananas help!

Sep 6, 2023
Hi folks, thank you in advance for your help with this it’s driving me nuts! I just updated my bios, on the computer that I just built. It’s been going for a couple of weeks just fine, but I’m a first time builder, and it came to my attention that I should’ve been updating the bios in step one. So I finally got to that today and all went well with the bio update. Weird thing is happening now, though, when I go into windows, and I’m at the start screen where you put in your pin, the mouse appears to be fine. As soon as I put in my pin, and I get into windows and start doing things it will every Four or five seconds or so disappear and jump to the upper left corner. Now since it seems to be happening after I put my pin in on windows, you would think it would be some sort of startup software that’s loading and messing with it, but I literally did not touch a thing except for updating the bios and then this problem started happening. Any idea what gives? I’ve tried using different USB ports because it’s a 2.4 GHz USB wireless mouse and nothing seems to work. I am perplexed! Thank you!


I'd suggest this. It really is to delete the mouse driver and then re-install it so it can discover where everything is.

Go into Device manager. Under Mice and Other Pointing Devices find the mouse. RIGHT-click on that and choose to Unistall the device. Back out of this, DISconnect the mouse interface (that is, the little block plugged into a USB port), and shut down. Now re-start. When it is finished, plug that block back in. You should see on your screen a message that a new device has been discovered and a driver for it is being loaded. When that's finished your mouse should work properly.
