I have a Logitech MX510 mouse that has started freezing intermittently.
The mouse is USB originally connected to the PS2 port with a dongle. It randomly stops then quickly restarts (this takes approx 1 second-ish). I have tried: connecting straight into a USB port, reinstalling the Logitech software, removing the logitech software completely and using the standard mouse drivers, using an old PS2 ball mouse. I haven't been able to try a different (non-Logitech) USB mouse as I don't have access to one, or to connect the MX510 to a different computer (ditto).
I have also tried rolling back to a backup of my entire system - the problem is still there (although it seems to be a bit less frequent.
I am running Windows XP Home with all Windows updates.
Has anyone got any ideas on this? It is an annoyance in Word etc but a real issue when playing games.
The only hardware related issue could possibly be the hard-drive temporarily slowing up or graphics card or RAM - but as the problem is so slight it would be quite difficult to pin-point any one thing.
You could check to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks anywhere in Devices.
