why's my gaming mouse causing fatal errors?

win xp home.

I have a logitech 518 gaming mouse, earlier in the week I had a BSOD as the machine was woken out of stanby. I was told that the cuprit lmouke.sys is a logitech mouse driver. Just now the computer was in standby, I watched from the sofa as it came back to the desktop and then resarted the machine, alerting me to a serious error.

event viewer shows:

source: system error

Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 b9afa708, parameter3 b49ceb5c, parameter4 00000000.

Appreciate whatever help you guys give me.

You could try reinstalling the mouse software presuming that is what caused the problem or looking for an updated driver or depending on what specialist functions the mouse has perhaps trying to use a standard Microsoft mouse driver for XP.

Heres th Logitech drivers page for your mouse, version 2.47 appears to be the latest click here

With my Logitech MX 1000 Laser mouse.A re-installation of the drivers seems to have cured the problem so do as T-B suggests and see if it does the trick.

Thanks T-B I had that version I have just removed that version and installed the old version off the cd.

Wouldn't like to try it with generic windows driver the mouse responds soo slowly without logitech's software. I have it set to high acceleration usually.
