Cursor stopped mouse dead?

    Hello.. recently I was using my computer, everything working perfectly.. then my cursor sticks-froze-won't move. I tried to reboot but the cursor is stuck in same place on the screen. I checked all connections on my Logitech optical mouse, new batteries, etc. Then I reinstalled the mouseware, to no avail. I have never seen anything like this and it is hard to troubleshoot (for me anyway) without the use of the mouse. I do not know what to do now. I can't even begin to guess what has happened here. Anyone who can suggest? I am thinking of taking the Logitech optical mouse back for a replacement. but I still don't know what is best here. Help, please anyone.
    Thank you kindly.

    OMG, I want to avoid this. I don't even know how to navigate without the mouse. I have alot of important information on this system. Is there any other way to
    get it working.?

    Its weird it (the cursor) is stuck on screen. I do not
    know how to navigate well without the mouse. The mouse does not work at all. I was thinking of a replacement mouse. I have not tried another mouse yet.

    I am going to try to get a replacement today. I am not sure about this but, if I get another optical mouse and connect, it should recognize right away shouldn't it?
    I am not sure about the "how to" on this situation.
    Any suggestions?

    My Logitech wireless optical (mx 700) wouldn't work either after a reboot. I dealt with their tech support and they said to use the PS2 adapter instead of USB. Not sure which model you have or if it's USB but it's worth a try.

    FROM ROYDEN : I got a new optical mouse and once I plugged it in, the cursor started moving and all is well. Thanks for your support and help.


    P.S. ROYDEN contacted me on AIM .;)

    If this happens again maybe try turning down hardware acceleration one or two notches, it used to happen to me way back in the day and that sorted it
