Default Obnoxious mouse malfunction/lag

This happened out of nowhere. My mouse (Microsoft USB Wheel Mouse Optical) just lags for no reason. It doesn't slow down or get a little choppy; it just stops. In fact, sometimes I hear the little sounds of "you've disconnected hardware" and then immediately "you've connected hardware" as if Vista Home Premium 32-bit stopped recognizing my mouse for 3 seconds.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Edit: I just realized this usually happens when I do...something. Like close a tab in firefox. Or press play in Windows Media Player. Or shoot in a game.

Have you got the latest drivers for both your mouse and chipset?

The mouse, yes, the chipset, I'm not sure. Like, the motherboard chipset?

Yes the mother board chipset. They contain updates for USB drivers most of the time now.

Ok, I think I just installed them...But it took like 2.5 seconds. I'll let you know if it works, thanks.

Edit: Nope, unless I did something wrong.

Have you tried a different USB Port? Have you got it connected thru a USB Hub?

It's not connected through a hub, and I think I've tried different USB ports. I'll try a different one.

edit: Hm...this third port is working out so far...

edit: nope. same problem.

edit: my internet connection has been pretty poor. Could there be a connection between these two things?

Well, the optical laser (or whatever it's called) turns off when my mouse freezes, so something is completely just stopping.
