Mouse keeps turning off and on...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm using a Logitech G9, and this situation has gotten pretty annoying.. At random times, the mouse begins to power off out of nowhere. It's more like a reset, because it doesn't reboot immediately, and sometimes it just doesn't power off. I hear that windows sound where you unplug a usb (which doesn't come immediately but is delayed, btw), and sometimes the mouse will turn on again, after struggling for a little while. Of course I know this because the LED's turn off and on respective to my mouse working.

I first thought it all my USB, but my Logitech G19 keyboard worked perfectly fine, even upon switching the mouse and keyboard. I then thought it was just my G9 mouse, but then my Lenovo remote mouse doesn't work either! So I am pretty puzzled, because I thought it might perhaps be a PSU issue, but it seems to only be affecting my mice, and I already tried to significantly lower my OC, even though I have a 1000w PSU with only one video card. When my mouse loses power, I even tried replacing it with my another mouse, and still same problem, no matter the USB port. The only thing I have left to think about is the motherboard, my P67A-UD5, or maybe it's a software thing, related to the mouse controller.

I already tried going to device manager and went to all of the USB controllers and unchecked the option where it says to allow it to power off in some cases, but still nothing. Also, I have recently installed a sound card, a Xonar DX, but the mouse conflict did not come immediately after but a little later. Perhaps an IRQ conflict? I am puzzled, and there's nothing else on google that would suggest that my motherboard is the source of the problem...

Any help? Hehehehe...

the cable is most likely broken as it sounds.

I had problems with the G9 too so I took it back and bought a good mouse instead. Seemed to fix the problems.

Well, it could be a problem with the motherboard or overloading the USB ports, which have to supply +5V to all of your USB peripherals. Are you running any other USB peripherals, besides mouse and keyboard? If so, disconnect all of them, leaving just keyboard and mouse, and see if you still get the same problem. Add devices back, until you find the culprit. It doesn't seem likely that your TWO mice could both have a failed cable, so it probably isn't that, even though cables are the #1 failure point for mice.

Also, make sure you are connecting the mouse directly to a back-panel USB port on the motherboard; NOT to a hub, NOT to the keyboard's USB port, and preferably NOT to a front USB port.

One last thing to check, assuming this is a recent build, or if you made any other changes to the PC, is to see if anything could be shorting out between the motherboard and the case or other peripherals and the case. I once got a brand-new, but bad, floppy cable (I swapped out an old flat ribbon style cable for a rounded "streamlined" style cable), that was shorting out the 5V supply and causing stability problems, and I solved the problem by reverting the recent changes to the PC that I had made, one-by-one, until I found this. Good luck!

Wow, I think it was the cable. I replaced my G9 with my G500, and it hasn't yet gone haywire. This is really strange, because the moment when my G9 went haywire, no mouse that I plugged in would work. So it might be because once my G9 caused everything to go haywire, it messed up everything that was mouse related in my comp. It does make sense too, because the mouse seemed to go crazy more frequently when I played games and moved it around a lot.

Thanks a lot! +reps!
