    Mice and other pointing devices missing from device manager


    This has really been bothering me for the last few days and has rendered my laptop basically un-useable.

    My touchpad does not work at all and nor does plugging in a mouse via USB.


    I checked the device manager and the Mice and other pointing devices category was missing.


    I've been searching fixes for the past few days and none have worked. for the record, I have tried;

    restarting my laptop

    command prompt commands them all

    downloading drivers from my laptops website acer

    showing hidden devices in device manager

    uninstalling and disabling then reableing broken drivers

    reinstalling windows 10 twice

    updating my laptop

    device manager scan for hardware changes


    all of the above have led to no avail and I seriously need help. This all started after I performed a USB Boot Windows10 install. It was working as normal prior to that.


    Please any help would be appreciated

    :)

  3. Can't find "mice or pointer device" in device manager

    I posted in late December about my mouse and touch pad not working after upgrading to Windows 10. I received instructions to resolve this, however, when I go to Device Manager I don't see any link/listing for "mice and other pointing devices".

    Now what do I do?

    Imaging Devices missing in Device Manager and Webcam doesn't working

    Hi,

    Since you mentioned that the said driver is missing in Device Manager, what we suggest is for you to check in the Hidden Devices section on Device Manager. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • On the desktop, press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager.
    • Click on View and select
      Show Hidden Devices.
    • Check for the webcam under Imaging Devices.
    • If the webcam is listed, then right-click on it and select
      Update Driver Software
    • Select Browse My Computer for Driver Software and follow the prompted steps.
    Please post back with the result for further assistance
