Hi everyone, this is absolutely a hardware problem, my mouse is having some issues with its cords.
Every once in a while it stops working for a few seconds because the way the cords were moved they no longer have a contact with the board (see photos).

I hope you guys can help me and tell how I should proceed to fix the cords and keep them in contact with the board.

I can provide more photos and information if you guys need.

Find an electronics tech, or:
Unsolder wires 1 at a time, strip back 1/8-1/4", tin wire and solder back into place.
Repeat as necessary.
Do not overheat the circuit board, If you ruin a copper trace a thin solid wire will
have to be added.
Helpful tools: Solder Sucker, Solder Wick, small needlenose pliers, hemostat clips,
thin rosin core solder, soldering iron, swivel vise( to hold card)
Good luck!
