Mouse Not Working

By bhl

  1. Hi all,

    My mouse randomly freezes for short instants of time, then works again. I use a corded Logitech MX518 mouse through a USB port in WinXP. When it happens, the cursor freezes, the red light from underneath the mouse stops, and windows makes the usual "a USB device has been unplugged/plugged-in" sound. The frequency of the freezing is much higher when I play CounterStrike. If the mouse is left alone, it does not appear to ever freeze.

    Rebooting seems to midly alleviate the problem, but very temporarily. I've tried other USB ports to no avail and I have a 420 watt power supply. When I use the PS2 adapter, the frequency of the freezing is considerably lower, but if it does go out with a PS2 I'm pretty much screwed as Windows will not re-detect my mouse. I use default drivers, not Logitechs, but I did have this same problem ages ago with my Microsoft IntellMouse 3.0. If anyone has a similar problem, please mention it and the things you tried, successful or not. Thanks for you help.

    Take it easy,
    Justin

    Think I found my problem. When looking through my system information, I found the following device conflicts. Ironically enough, one exists with the USB + video card. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

    There is a setting in BIOS setup to assign an IRQ for VGA (under pnp). You can disable it if you like.

    Yes, I am having the exact same problem. I have even tried a different mouse and still ended up with the same mouse (though I didn't uninstall the drivers when I did that, the other mouse may have been a logitech).

    The problem is getting extremely annoying, and I wish someone could help me and the many other people that are getting this problem.

    Thank you,

    I bought a new mouse. Apparently, ALOT of people get this problem and there is no solution I'm told.

    That sucks. I guess that's just a word to the wise for people who are looking for reviews on this mouse in the future.
