Overclocked WMO randomly disconnecting/reconnecting?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I overclocked my WMO to 500hz using this tutorial.

However, it seems that my mouse will randomly disconnect/reconnect, in the sense that it's being unplugged and plugged back in, yet it's not being touched?

Strangely, some days it hasn't happened at all - but today it's literally happened three times in a row...

Faulty mouse? Faulty USP port?

Anyone have similar experiences or thoughts on this?

It barely happened yesterday, yet today in the past 5 minutes it's been happening non stop... and there was even a stint where the sensor was flickering...

Anyone know if this might be due to the overclock?

Unstable as in my particular mouse isn't a good overclocker, or the overclock itself (used jackfrags' method) is unstable?

I figured 500hz, which I prefer anyway, might be a bit more stable than 1000hz...

Most likely not because you overclocked your USB port. The cable has probably gone bad. Try to use the mouse on different USB port, and also on a different computer.

If the problem stays the same then you have to either replace the cable, or get a new mouse.

So the WMO cables in general have issues handling the overclocks?

Or you think it'd only be my cable?

Kinda curious, even though they're only like $12 mice, would like not to end up buying a lot of them.

Nothing will get damaged by overclocking USB ports, it has never happened as far as I know.

Strictly cable problems.

WMO handles overclocking fine. It's probably just a coincident that the cable got loose

I've experienced this. Mouse can just sit there and you hear the windows disconnect/reconnect. I can actually replicate this if I oc a port and then move my tower from the ground to my desk surface. It's your hub. Uninstall all hub drivers, remove all current devices, reinstall drivers, plug in different devices, plug in old devices. Works for me. No idea which part, though. I only know stuff about mice.
