Window 7 keyboard stops working intermittently

Hello,
Recently, my mouse has been working intermittently. If I do a fresh start of the computer, the mouse is fine for about 6-10 clicks, then I hear the computer sound when a device is removed. About 4-5 seconds later I hear the sound indicating a device has been found. About 2 seconds later, the mouse starts working again. This last for about 10-20 seconds and then the cycle starts again. During the times when the mouse is not working, the function keys on the keyboard will not work. Sometimes, even when the mouse is working, the function keys do not work. If I don't use the mouse, I have no issues with the keyboard. I am using a Logitech mouse and a DV Keyboard. I have had Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my desktop computer for over 6 months (a fresh install) and this issue started about 2 weeks ago.

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    Have you tried using the mouse with different USB ports ?

    I had a similar issue with my mouse recently, my mouse ended-up being the problem. Look if the USB connection on the PC didn't get loose or the one on the mouse itself. I know there is no "connector" on the mouse, but it doesn't mean the wire soldering cannot fail; you can try moving the wire around to reproduce the problem (that is what happened to me).

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I have already tried that.

    I was amazed when I held the mouse and moved the cord. I was able to cause the problem I was having. Even though I suspected the mouse might be the issue, I never thought about a broken (or frayed) wire. Thanks.

  6. I think it took me weeks if not months trying to figure that out, I though my PC had been hacked or something and that some backdoor was trying to mount a virtual USB device or something like that. Glad I could help you in 2-3 days ;)
