Default My Computer has a problem with USB Plz Help

Hello everyone.
I have a computer equipped with:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-8I915G-MF
Power Supply: 350W
Hard Drive: 1TB SATA
Optical Drive: 2 (1 SATA & 1 IDE)
OS: Windows XP SP3

The problem is many times my computers lose the usb mouse and I can't bring it back only if I unplug and plug it again.
Thanks

Does this happen with any other peripherals, such as keyboard (if it's a USB keyboard)?

if it's only the mouse, try installing drivers specific to your mouse, instead of using windows generic drivers.

You might want to try a USB to PS/2 converter. Tell us, what is the manufacturer and/or model number?

You could try using a different USB port, that sometimes helps me.

^That would my first verdict, but he didn't clarify that he tried different ports.
