Default Strange mouse Issues.

Starting two days ago my mouse started freezing durring games and on the desktop. I have a logitec MX 518 (I have also tried a MX 400). What happens is the mouse just freezes and I can hear the microsoft "usb connection" detected sound then it starts working again. It's always at random times, sometimes the mouse will be fine for a few hours, then it can DC for an hour straight every 10-20 seconds keep in mind both mice I have tried are WIRED. Now here's what I tried doing. Mouse drivers: Updating drivers, Removed drivers, Reinstalled Drivers. Switched USB Ports. Tried two mice (both do it). Checked my start up menu, took off everything not needed. What else can I try besides.. a new computer I'm at a lose on what this could be...?

What are your temps like when this happens? Get and run HWMonitor, leave it on while gaming, or when ever it freezes. Might want to look on task manager as well, see what programs are taking up you CPU/RAM.

By what core temps says (I have that running in the taskmanager my high is 44C for CPU on a quad core. Though CORE temp is for CPU temps only so I will throw up HWmonitor as well and let you know. after playing SC2 for an hour or so. (or w/e the problem happens today.) Also I do stream.. so if streaming would help you see it Live to help let me know.. im willing to try anything at this point.

Ok so nothing really taken up my CPU/Ram besides firefox and SC2 ... the temps all look amazingly low tho my case is open to help the temps stay down caise there is only one case fan.. when it happened today the vid card is at 78C the rest is all down at about 55C at max, even typing this out my mouse DCed twice went and bought a new mouse.. and plugging that it .. right now since it just DCed again :/

Then don't mess with it. Call warranty support and get on record you are having this problem.

In the mean time, try a different USB pair (not just a different port in the same pair). If using a back pair, use a pair in the front, if you computer has one as that will likely be a different controller.

No, the computer isen't new I ment I didn't know what else to try besides getting a whole new computer to fix the issue. Sadly I haven't found anytime to really test out this new mouse tho I haven't had it happen so far on desktop/sites with the new mouse(third mouse im trying) yet...

Has it BSOD'ed yet because of this, or even since this started? If it does, post up the dump file in the Windows section so it can be checked out. My wife's computer is doing something similar and it looks to be the graphics driver causing the problem.

If the problem is with the usb bus then you should check the motherboard temperatures not the cpu temperatures.

Check this link out, it will help you post screenshots.

Oh, no blue screens ever actually... and haven't seen the same thing since i got the new mouse. problem is i cant get used to the mouse, and cant tell if its cause of me, the mouse or if a problem still actually exsists its so hard to tell.. the sensitivity seems off and it seems like it does "stop" sometimes when im moving around and making me reset it on the mousepad ..bleh with this new mouse just so hard to tell now if there is a real issue or if its me trying to get used to a new mouse (I was very precice as a gamer with my old mouse...)
