USB Mouse Reinitializes Many Times

Recommended Posts

So recently, whenever I try to play a game with lots of mouse movement, my mouse dies under Windows XP and a second later the familiar "da-doop" sound chimes in telling me that it found new hardware. It doesn't do this at all when I boot into Linux. Could this be a hardware issue? It's a really old logitech mouse (6 maybe 7 years old). Any ideas why it would do this?

No harm to reinstall the driver, but XP usually already has most default drivers for older mice.

I'd suggest using the USB port that is DIRECTLY on your motherboard (on the i/o sheild at the back of your computer) instead of hooking your USB mouse through a hub or plugging it at the front ports etc.

How old is your mobo?

Next test is to use a different USB mouse and see if it does the same thing, and use your old USB mouse on a different computer. Maybe there's a loose connection inside your mouse that's the problem

The mobo is pretty old, an Intel, can't remember the exact specs off the top of my head. I tried using the USB ports on my mobo as well as an addon card I have, same issue so it's probably hardware related... :(

Guess it's time to get a new mouse.
