Re: Drivers for usb devices

Usually, the default Windows drivers will work with a mouse.  As you are also having problems with the printer this suggests some type of USB hardware problem.  

Post your PC Model Number and OS.  Can't really say without knowing what you have.  I can then move this to the appropriate hardware section (desktop or laptop).
