mouse suddenly stops functioning


I'm on Xubuntu 8.10, XP2000+ and 512 mb RAM.
What should I do if my mouse suddenly stops functioning?

Check the mouse connector, whether its loosely connected or not.

cos apart from that i dont think so there should be any issue from OS point of view.

I don't think its cable connection or something. I've tried that but I was not able to get it working until a restart. And on restart a message appear checking sda. Can somebody shed light on this.

Thank you for that info.
I cannot remember the exact message but it appeared after Xubuntu screen. The message as far as I can remember is checking your.... 40% then 50% until it reached 100%. Normal booting does not show this.
I'm using an optical mouse (Deluxe, model M335). Is there a possibility of hardware incompatibility issue?

no its not a hardware failure

what u saw was file system integrity check, which is done by the OS when system shutdowns abruptly.
