I have a mouse that no longer works after I unplugged and replugged in my computer at the mains (something I rarely do).
My only guess is that the mouse is designed badly and experienced some form of power surge. When I plug it in, I get a momentary flash of light from it's LED (which is meant to remain constant), though it is recognized as a mouse via the computer, however no function on the mouse works.
Could this be due to a passive component or voltage regulator being damaged? If so I may be able to repair it, though if it is a programmed chip that's damaged I realize I have no chance of repair.
This is (was) my only working good mouse and I can't get it replaced til next week, hence I'm willing to take a risk here. The mouse is a zowie EC2A.
Any help is appreciated!
