Just how old is that mouse?

Tried it using a different USB port?

Could check the motherboard for any defects.
Main problem with 2006 or older, is bad capacitors.

G'day BigPup!

Mouse is "new" (bought recently) but I suspect is "new old-stock".
Will try new mouse and USB port.

Old MB, but seems good.

New topic.
On the topic of bad capacitors: I have a box/mother-board and the capacitors are definitely bulging. (This computer does not boot.) I would like to try to make it go! Has ANYONE on this list replaced capacitors on a multi-layer motherboard? I would like to try this! Can I un-solder / re-solder components from a multi-layer board. (Always a first time for everything!)
