PS2 mouse gone into Psycho mode!

There I was, happily surfing the net when my PS2 mouse decides to throw a fit!

It starts pressing buttons all by itself, the mouse pointer stops and starts when you try to move it and phases in and out of reality, then the damn thing just ends by refusing to move and killing most of the OS.

I've tried resetting the computer and removing/reinstalling all drivers in normal and safe mode. The mouse will work ok for a while but then goes into psycho mode.

Funny thing is, when I swap the mouse over to serial everything works fine using the standard MS serial driver. The OS won't load however if I install the driver that came with my mouse which is required to use the third button.

Could this be a virus?
Is my mouse bust?
Has WinME messed up the registry and I'll have to do a re-install?
Can anyone help?

Thanks!

check your CD drives.. a failing CD will hog the DMA bandwidth and make your mouse WAY less than responsive

Probably driver.

I'm surprized no one has jumped on you about your avatar.

Thanks for the replies, but it's definitely not the CDROM's or Driver(s).

Just tried it out in DOS, still goes berserk so it's not WinME.

I think the PS2 port on my 8KHA+ has decided to die since the mouse works fine on the serial port. Either that or the mouse has lost PS2 compatibility and needs replacing.

As for my avatar it's only a bit of fun - in fact you're the first person to even mention it!
