Default Mouse disconnecting randomly

Recently, my mouse randomly disconnnects and connects again within 1-2 seconds. There is the sound that you would hear when you plug something in the USB. This occurs mostly in Counter Strike. i also notice that if i move my mouse really fast, its more likely to happen. Also, if i have a cd in my cd drive, it happens too. I have updated all mouse drivers and tried old ones as well. I dont think it has to do with my mouse, because it was working fine until i got back from a lan party. Please help me because this is getting really annoying now

A couple things that I would try:

-Replace the batteries in your mouse (or charge it).
-Use a different USB port.
-Try a USB to PS/2 convertor (that usually comes with mice).

try cleaning the USB connector. even if it's plugged in, sometimes if it is not clean it doesn't get a good signal through
also, what drivers are you using?
is it a wireless mouse?
