  1. Try changing usb ports. If possible plug it into a usb powered hub or a pci sub card. I had the same problem with my mouse. Would just quit working. Unplub and replug and its back. Eversince I put it in a usb 2.0 pci card it hasnt dropped off once.
    It could just be a driver issure or maybe the usb is losing power or something. I quit worrying about it since it stopped messing up.
  2. Yeah, It was doing that in the PS2 port, and I changed it to USB and its worse!
  3. that sucks...
  4. Mouse / USB could be dying.

    In anycase, try updating your chipset drivers...who knows, it could help.
  5. If it is dying, It served me well! :)
  6. No doubt! :wink:
