USB Mouse cutout w/ WinXP Home

By lawrence.j.riley ·
My MS USB optical mouse keeps (every few minutes) cutting out momentarily (1 or 2 seconds).

Does anyone have any ideas where to look for an answer? I have the latest drivers, there are no conflicts I can find, and Norton Utilites doesn't find a problem. I do not notice any pattern as far as when it happens or what is open when it happens.

Do you have other USB devices connected?

If so, the motherboard may not provide enough power for all devices to run all the time.

Try connecting any other devices to a powered USB hub.

By the way, you usually get faster, and more responses to technical questions if you post them in the Technical Q&A area.
