    PC wont turn on with USB Mouse

    Bit of a strange one this.

    I have a PC that is a few years old. Never had any problems with it. until now.

    With everything plugged in, I turn the PC on but get no output to the screen and no activity lights on the PC. Just a power light. it doesnt even POST

    If i unplug the USB mouse it turns on fine. I've tried different mice, different USB ports its still the same and I can replicate it every time.

    The keyboard is USB and it works fine with that. I can get round it by using a USB to PS/2 connector and it works but its just bugging me
