Code 10
If the device has a "FailReasonString" value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator places this registry string value there. If there is no "FailReasonString" in the hardware key, the following generic error message is displayed:

This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Try upgrading the device drivers for this device.

Solution button: Update Driver

To resolve this error code, make sure the device is connected to the computer correctly. For example, make sure all cables are plugged in fully and that all adapter cards are properly seated.

For the Mouse as it's icon is shown in device manager, try deleting it and rebooting, this may then be reinstalled at boot up

Try going through the "Add New Hardware" to see if you can reinstall it this way.

You could also try doing a "System Restore" to a date before this started to happen.
