New vegas mouse not working in menus

So when I begin up New Vegas, I deserve to use my computer mouse to load up my save and also that is pretty much it. You recognize once you hover your computer mouse over, say, a gun in your inventory, or a dialogue option, and so on and so on The choice highlights through a box around it, and also you deserve to then make your selection through a left click. When I am in a food selection, I get no such highlighting and I cannot usage my mouse to pick an object. Because of this, I cannot navigate any type of menus making use of my mouse. While I have the right to regulate utilizing the arrowhead secrets to navigate dialogue and the pipboy, the trading screen is non practical making use of the arrowhead tricks. Does anyone have actually a solution to this issue? This just began today and I have added no new mods before or since this worry has actually started.

* Try renaming/deleting your "C:Users\DocumentsMy GamesFalloutNV" folder "Fallout" and also "FalloutPrefs" INI files and let the game rebuild them.  You will then have to reuse any tweaks you made to them, which is why I imply renaming them so you have actually copies to referral.
