Got the ethernet working again, the mic, and the operating system.. which is nice.. Thought I'd post this topic just in case anyone has solved this issue before.. Believe me, I have spent the last entire week reformatting and looking for things.. I looked for this problem but it's just to vague. Just hoping maybe someone else out there had their usb mouse just start pulling off to the left and up.. or off to any direction really.. It's not huge.. but if i move the mouse very slowly to the bottom right.. it cancels out my movements.. I've tried everything I can think of.. which entails: changing usb ports. uninstalling the driver manually and letting it reinstall. reformatting quick and normally. enabling usb mouse in bios. reinstalling the OS. Repairing the OS. idk what else to try..lol.. brain = goo.. but I keep pressin buttons.. somethings bound to happen.. good or bad. who knows.. but dammit I want my mouse back..lol..
