It has now been solved - After google searching for answers & checking in Cmos etc, opened it up and found a loose cable was the problem : ) Any ideas on why it wants to "find neeew drivers" for a USB mouse that was on there previously but now thinks its something new? Does it forget if not used for a couple months?
