-used to have this issue with previous video card as well(gtx460)
-mouse works fine in my laptop
-the whole system doesn't freeze, just the mouse.

Does it happen when you're doing something on the machine like file xfer or just randomly when doing nothing?

Both actually. Sometimes it's worse like you cnt even make it across the whole desktop without it freezing 3 or 4 times during the travel.

I just reset my bios to where it's been before nd also disconnected alienware LEDs board. Only had keyboard nd mouse connected, but when bios initialization occurs, it says 1 kg, 1 mouse, nd 1 hub. Nt sure where that hub is connected or if it's internally additional USB ports for theherboard?

Also, I plugged mouse nd keyboard into red usb connectors on back, which am guessing are primary or ones that provide most power?

Restart, freezing occurs few times, then it seems to have stopped freezing. Right now am moving mouse nd no freezes. Nt sure what hapon.

Efit: no, happnd again freeze. It seems to like to freeze when I get close to something that makes show up text on screen, like when you get to the folder with mouse nd there text box appears...

But freezes would also happn on empty parts of desktop.

Sounds like your system is trying to gently tell you it's time to upgrade.

"We had good times together, Taco - but it's time for me to retire and for you to upgrade to Ryzen."
Cnt mate, I lub♡ my X58. Worst case I'll recover windows to fa Tory nd reinstall, big pain. She dies everything taco wants from her!

Sometimes my old system can freeze a bit like that when I'm moving a large amount of files around my system which I assume just means I'm crushing the bus. Beyond that I would probably try another mouse and different usb ports on the machine front and back. Maybe even try shutting it off and reseating the power connectors inside.

If you are familiar with linux at all could try loading one on a USB stick and boot it up to see if it happens there as well. Might at least tell you if it's system or OS related.

If all you do with USB is mouse and keyboard... See if you can disable the usb 2/3 bits and run usb 1. Might be more stable.

Is your mouse wired? A common failure of wired mice over time is the USB cable where it comes out of the body of the mouse will fatigue and break internally. This leads to intermittent connections where the mouse can drop out and reconnect rapidly. Try wiggling the USB cable around where it comes out of the body of the mouse and see if it acts erratically. This is an annoying problem to fix, you have to chop the bad section out of the USB cable and re-connect the ends with solder and heat shrink.

Another issue can be tarnished contacts in the USB connector of the mouse, or the motherboard. I'd recommend spraying some Deoxit Gold G5 in the port and doing a few plug/unplug cycles

If it's a wireless mouse, the battery terminals could be fatigued and not making proper contact with the PCB inside the mouse. The dongle that plugs into the computer can also suffer oxidation issues on the contacts, which again can be cleaned with Deoxit Gold.

Yet another issue could be entirely unrelated to the mouse. If you have any external storage devices like USB flash drives or hard drives, unplug them. Misbehaving USB devices can take down the whole USB subsystem and cause everything to act erratically.

Nice call, I’ve never had that happen to a usb device, but n multiple headsets cuz I’m hard on them snagging and pulling them on accident.

I usually try to keep the JST connector, but what you did works too. The repair should last for many more years unless the USB cable is substandard, in which case you can just toss the existing cable and wire in a new one. Those A to B USB printer cables work fine, but don't have 5 wires. I think the 5th green wire is just an extra ground and can be ignored if it has continuity to the USB ground.

All of my mice are going on 20-25 years old, I've had it happen more than most people will ever see it.

I have a thing for Microsoft's Intellimouse Optical 1.1a, no other mouse since then has worked for me. They're apparently still so popular that the cost of used mice are over $100, and the Chinese have made knockoff clones!

Thank you! I tried opening up the crimps on the connector, but was unsuccessful recrimping the new wires back in. Took out my dad's gun nd decided to go alternate route. He taught me a lot! Miss him.

Thank you GiGaBiTe nd everyone! Been using mouse all evening yesterday nd nt a single hickup!

You don't need to pull the connector apart, just cut the bad section out of the cable and solder to the existing wires coming out of the connector. There's usually enough good wire left on the JST connector side to do this. But since you already fixed the mouse, no sense going back and doing it again.
