k, I just bought an abyssus and I am having some problems with actually making it run

the issue is this: I plug the mouse, it lights up, but it doesn't actually work (installing the razer drivers makes no difference)

when I switch the usb ports the mouse works for about 2 seconds while the "razer abyssus" tray sign is on and as soon as the "your new hardware is installed and ready to use" sign loads up it halts again (light is still up)

I have had this problem with all my mice(IE3, G1, razer DB) but somehow I managed to work around it in the past and never touch anything again

so the problem lies within the usb

I am running XP sp3 32bit


P.S.: even with the razer drivers installed and the device up in device manager the hardware tab in "mouse" in control panel is empty
