    Right click my computer > hardware tab > device manager. Expand mice and other pointing devices. Right click your mouse, and select uninstall. Reboot via the following key press sequence [winkey], [u], [r].

    On reboot windows should auto detect the mouse and reinstall, at the very least, basic HID drivers, but if you have a driver CD from the manufacturer use it.

    Or it could be a hardware failure and you need a new mouse...

    open it and look at the soldering,
    and the wire where it enters the mouse.

    my optical started dropping dead - turned out to be a break in the cable where it entered the mouse.
    i cut a few inches off and re-fitted it - works fine now
