It's not moving. I tried rebooting and an old mouse (with a ball) no avail. does this mean a trip to the shop. It's a Windows desktop running XP

Try a system restore to a time when it was working.

If that doesn't work check "System>Device Manager" for a little exclamation point icon next to the mouse or USB port. Sounds like it may be the port it's plugged into.

It connects with a wire, but I tried ctrl/alt/del and that seems to have fixed it. I couldn't do restore without the mouse, I don't know all those alt commands.

Thanks very much everyone

If in doubt, restart.

Learn the keyboard commands. They're right there in the drop down menus, right next to the menu items.

Save your wrist while you're at it.
