Mouse Freezes

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. After about 5 seconds, Windows will re-detect my mouse and continue as normal.

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

Maybe the mouse wires makes shorts. Look for a hot temperature source. Maybe you'll have to buy a new one

Definitely try the newest drivers from Logitech's website:

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/produ ... NTID=10121

I've never worked with this nice of a mouse before, but I have actually found that the wrong mousepad, or mouse surface, can cause similar problems.

The part that concerns me most is the light under the mouse. Does the light actually turn off? If so you may want to look into Logitech support:

U may check the connection of USB port FIRST.
then, check the connection between the wire and the mouse.

Dont think ur problem too serious.

It sounds more like your graphics card is causing the problems. If you look at the additional information you posted (irq info). It mentions that may be the problem.
Currently, I am having a similar mouse problem. The only difference is, it is not related to my graphics card. The mouse freezes at random and comes back. I have done the emi test and it came up inconclusive. Now im trying a higher power supply. Currently, I have a 400W power supply. The computer has 2 hds, 250mb zip internal, dvd rom, and usb devices ranging a digital camera to a pocket pc (all 8 USB ports are used). Other specs: 1024 mb of pc 3200 ddr RAM, AMD athlon XP 2900+ w/ 400mhz FSB, and nothing is hooked into my firewire ports. Anyone have ideas to solving the problem. Also, when I play games the mouse works fine

On my logitech mice, the laser stops blinking and I actually have to slam the mouse on the desk to get it to resync. But that I think is a surface problem. When its on the pad it doesn't do it.

Sounds like some bad mice. I would contact logitech, maybe they have addressed the issue and have some ways to help alleviate it.

I have the same issue with the mouse(mouse frezes often and cursor stops but I can able to move the cursor with the help of keyboard) and I found the wire are shorts at the neck of the mouse.

I got it fixed. I am sure its not conflick or not USB drivers problem.If it is wireless mouse check with the battery of the mouse or the connectivity of the mouse

got that problem too. :hmm:

:shock: WHAT IS THE COMPUTER THAT HAVE A PROBLEM
1 year old laptop, toshiba satellite, 1,86 GHz,1 Go RAM, ATI Radeon X700 256 mg.
Microsoft USB wheel optical mouse,
windows xp home (Legal) recently formated and updated

:?: PROBLEM
Every 5 second when doing anything on the computer...
- mouse freeze
- lazer light turn off every 3 seconds
- windows sound (dong)
- undetected mouse by port
- pointer does NOT move by itself. (that is 90% sure its a trojan)

:!: HOW I TRIED TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM
Tryed to smash the mouse on the table but did'nt help but work and turning over the mouse works to. Unplug mouse USB and replug in port work for a bit and the problem come back 5 to 30 seconds later and gets crazy again.

Scan with AVAST home 4.8 and Webroot Spy Sweeper

Formated and reinstall windows (I though I add a unknown virus or TROJAN)

Mouse work fine on other computer with linux so the mouse is not the problem..

I have use the mouse on a pale/GREY plastic surface and this work the best for me. but why not on the usually mouse pad?

:idea: PROBLEM IS NOT RESOLVED YET BUT plastic surface or non-painted wood surface kinda fix the problem of mine
(had the problem comming back one time in the last 1 hour insted of every 3 seconds).

I'll keep an eyes on the furum. If someone as a better idea ... USED TO HAVE THAT PROBLEM ...
POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


GRAPEPOO

Hi, I am new here but I am glad to see some solutions to this problem. I have had the same. One very basic idea occurred to me finally after looking for a more complicated reason for this problem of the USB mouse seeming to disconnect. Ready?
Try cleaning the optical part under the mouse. Use a compressed air can you may use for other parts of your computer. Worked for me.
It was too simple. A physical reason for this problem. Laughing at myself now for all the grief I went through.
Good luck, GWS1
