Exclamation Mouse dead on RH 9 after video card install!

I have a noname value wheel mouse which suddenly died after I installed drivers for my ATI Radeon 9200 card. My mouse worked fine before the install, and their is nothing special about it, its not even optical. Is their anyway to restore the previous settings or revert to the default mouse setups? Thanks!

look in your /etc/X11/XF86Config file under mouse settings. Before that, make sure that its not your mouse itself, test it in a different machine, or try a different mouse in yours.

Could you post the XF86Config file section about your Mouse and tell us the type of mouse you have? That way we can tell ya what you need to do to it to get you back up and running again.
