I've been using a PS/2 mouse. Today, I turned on the computer and the cursor wouldn't move. A couple of restarts/shutdowns didn't help, so I gave up and shut off the computer for a while. Now it works, and I'm not sure what I did differently.
I've heard that unplugging and replugging PS/2 devices while the computer is on can cause damage to the port, and I'm not sure if I did this, but should I really worry about this now that the mouse is working again? (Should I even worry at all if I'm using a modern motherboard? It's a Gigabyte board if that matters.)
I'm switching to a USB mouse anyway, but I'm just worried that I damaged something, even if it's something I might not use regularly.
