Optical Mouse Problems - Windows XP

By jaredm82 ·
The problem I am currently having is that my optical mouse (Logitech MX-510 Performance Optical Mouse) will freeze from time to time for about 5-10 seconds, and I usually have to pick it up and put it back down a few times to "wake" it back up again.

I'm wondering if because the mouse is 3 years old now, if it's just dying on me, or what might the problem be otherwise.

It's never locked up completely, but it's very frequent, and it's making gaming hard to enjoy.

I've tried it on the USB port, as well as the PS/2 port and it's doing it on both.

Is it just old, or could it be something else?

A couple of things - check the light and sensor are clean

you'd be surprised how a bit of fluff or hair int here will mess things up. The next thing would be to reload the driver as it may be slightly corrupted. Best get the latest version of the driver for your operating system and load it anyway.
