Hello, I recently completed my first pc build.
Specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate
Amd Phenom II x4 965 3.4ghz
Asus M4AXTD Evo mb
Gskill 1333 sniper 8GB ram
Western digital 7200 rpm 500GB HD
Nvidia Geforce 9500GT
BFG 450Watt power supply
Lite-on dvd burner
Fan controller
2.5" usb/card reader
Radeon Smildon green LED case with 4 LED fans

Heres my problem... My usb mouse freezes once in while. Sometimes after the computer "wakes up" and always when another device is unplugged/plugged into a usb port. Ive tried more than one usb mouse so I have narrowed out it being a faulty mouse. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as Im still kinda new to this. Thanks for your time. Adam

it freezes when the mouse is plugged directly into one of my mb's 8 usb ports. i have a 2.5" internel usb/card reader also that it freezes in. no external usb hub though.

if you built it yourself check the wiring to the external usb plugs. if its happening with the onboard 1s too then reinstall the drivers.

i unplugged all my usb components, went into the device manager, clicked on the 3 usb tabs and unistalled them (I've only used 3 out of my 8 usb ports). i then plugged in my usb keyboard, mouse and bluetooth dongle. Windows then installed the 3 drivers, they now appear in the device manager as they did before. The mouse still freezes when i plug in or unplug any other usb component.
